Daily Alpha Update: The Final(ish) Chatless Update

Posted by Sir Max on November 1, 2013 at 2:00 PM

Hi there!
I can only use Speedchat.
Having fun?
Me too.
What do you want to do?
Let's go ride the trolley!
Got gags?
Sir Max is the greatest! I absolutely love these SpeedChat Phrases he wrote!



In case you couldn't tell, the above was written completely using SpeedChat Phrases. We've been trying to clean up and rework SpeedChat, and we're confident that SpeedChat is much easier to use than it was three days ago while still keeping a safe way for toons to talk to each other.

Thanks to your suggestions, many phrases have been added and moved around. This marks the end of our major SpeedChat rework, but we're not stopping here! Keep your eyes peeled as development continues, because no doubt there will be more to come. My ears are open for feedback!

We'd also like to give a thank you for an awesome Halloween yesterday. It was fun to see everyone running around as black cats thanks to Flippy. He might not throw buckets of paint on you anymore, but I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of Flippy as he continues his campaign. You know how politicians are.

Stick around, because as we announced in our first post: We will be pushing a major update every Saturday to go along with the minor daily updates. In the meantime, enjoy playing the Race Game!

November 1, 2013 [ttr-alpha-gc6a6c23]

Maintenance:
? Fix a bug that would occasionally cause the camera to act up during the Cannon Game.
? Server Stability

Features:
? Implement the Race Game. Be sure to head over to our Alpha forum to vote for the next game!
? The Chatless Update is complete! More phrases have been added and cleaned up based on your feedback.

Crazy dog said on November 1, 2013 at 2:04 PM
I love these speedchat phrases.:)

Super Snuffy Lemonnose said on November 1, 2013 at 2:06 PM
I like the new site and can't for the public release!

Colonel Bonzo said on November 1, 2013 at 2:17 PM
Fast progress on the Speedchat! :D

Minetoon said on November 1, 2013 at 2:26 PM
For Chat phrases you should put, "Don't be mean"!, or "I like this game"!, or "Happy Halloween"!, or "Trick Or Treat"!, or "Guess what I'm going to be for Halloween"!, or "A jelly a day will keep the toon awake"! Try and add stuff like that. :D

Temas said on November 1, 2013 at 2:31 PM
Great update! And can't wait for tomorrow!

DogMan said on November 1, 2013 at 2:39 PM
Howdy Sir Max! Nice work!

Kitty said on November 1, 2013 at 2:47 PM
Please hurry and get it posted to the public. How do you get an alpha key? Plz reply

Neptune said on November 1, 2013 at 2:57 PM
I'm really looking forward to the new and improved Speedchat. Hope you guys will use my suggested phrases, as I really believe in most of them. :P

Little Foot said on November 1, 2013 at 2:57 PM
Wow that's awesome! Keep up the good work! :D Thanks for completing that! Again, that's Toontastic :D WHEN WILL IT ALL BE PUBLICLY RELEASED?! I'm patient, but I still want to know LOL.

Annie said on November 1, 2013 at 3:00 PM
i like how you keep me up to date. I have a dream every night that I'm playing toontown rewritten

Doctor Blake Ruffton said on November 1, 2013 at 3:22 PM
Aw, cool! The Race Game was my favorite!

Mister Fluffy Dynoteeth said on November 1, 2013 at 3:48 PM
I'm loving the new phrases and how they've been reorganized so far. The SpeedChat needs a lot of in-battle strategy related phrases, too (maybe make a menu that only appears during battle have things like "aim for the cog on the left/right, "aim for my cog," etc.). That same menu could have things like "I'll lure, you attack" Or "you lure, I'll attack." These kinds of phrases, combined with the battle phrases that were already there in old TT would make speedchat much more convenient to use-- and would make it easier to communicate your thoughts/ideas with Chatless toons!

Ladrin said on November 1, 2013 at 3:49 PM
Great job guys! keep it up

Bingo said on November 1, 2013 at 3:54 PM
Great phrases! I have high hopes for the TTR future!

mariangel said on November 1, 2013 at 3:58 PM
your working so hard working countless hours on toontown rewritten i think you need a little rest!

said on November 1, 2013 at 3:58 PM
I cant wait for it to open. When do you think everyone will be able to go on?

ney said on November 1, 2013 at 4:03 PM
the body is taking shape every day something new hope grows with time all will be gathered in toontown for fun

ToonyTom said on November 1, 2013 at 4:07 PM
Awesome! Can't wait until beta :D

Good ol' Wacko Paddlegrooven said on November 1, 2013 at 4:12 PM
Can you add "BRB" and "AFK" and "LOL" to a new list called "Bubbles?" You can have speedchat in bubbles but only saying things like BRB or SOS.

An Brazilian Boy who doesnt know how to speak english said on November 1, 2013 at 4:14 PM
Where's the comments? / Amazing game. I'd like to help TTR translating to portuguese. :)

Maiden Short Order Cook said on November 1, 2013 at 4:18 PM
Ideas: 1) Let toons choose what trolley games they want to play if they ride the trolley alone OR let them use 'shuffle' and make it like it was prior. 2) Clothing for our doodles! 3) Make a separate race track for Grand Prix? instead of just having it sometimes on Saturdays and on Mondays? that way, you could race the Grand Prix and work on those laff points any time you want, as well as do the other races. Sometimes during Grand Prix, I just want to do regular races. The other things you did/do for Saturdays specials weren't part of earning laff points. They were just for fun: Fish Bingo and Trolley Tracks. Grand Prix was the only thing where you needed to earn laff points during the game that you couldn't do at any time you wanted to. Thank you!

Astro said on November 1, 2013 at 4:19 PM
Yet again, another great update Sir Max!

Masodoodle said on November 1, 2013 at 4:38 PM
You are working hard for all of us. I cannot thank you enough!

Vilot said on November 1, 2013 at 5:00 PM
ideas: - make a doodle (like make a toon but with doodles) - doodle accessories - doodle park - estate music - egg hunt trolley game (Easter only) - party golf (except it would be more like the cog golf in the front 3 through back 9) - pointed ears and pushed in faces (like a pugs) for dog toons - written messages / fan drawing mail (if your friend isnt online you can write them a message or send them a drawing and it would go in their mailbox but it might need to be approved first ) - a "post to toonbook" button for screenshots - glove colors and name tag colors - a gradient color option for toons & doodles (where you could slide a little thing around and get a color if you know what i mean, its on photoshop and stuff) - eye colors

Sir CrumpleDorf said on November 1, 2013 at 5:00 PM
You guys are awesome! I bet it'll be better than old toontown, you're constantly giving daily updates! I can't wait for it to go public.

Deputy Daisy Lemonbee said on November 1, 2013 at 5:00 PM
Regarding chat phrases for toons that cannot be added to a group because they need a promotion. A lot of times, the toons (especially if small kids) don't understand what you mean by a "promotion". It would be better if instead you had chat phrases that specified what they were lacking - for example: You need more merits before you fight the VP! You need more cog bucks before you can fight the CFO! and so on.

Colorless Rainbows said on November 1, 2013 at 5:41 PM
Holy Snap! That sounds great! I'll love how the fact that some kids can't communicate with text chat, so you added phrases to make it easier to communicate! Seriously, it helps a lot :D

Rainbow Funnytoon said on November 1, 2013 at 5:43 PM
Thank you so much! Fast progress.

The Great Blue Mouse said on November 1, 2013 at 5:54 PM
I absolutely love what you are doing. So much, that I have a little present in the works for the Toon HQ coming soon. The toons of the world will always unite when needed.

Popcornbud said on November 1, 2013 at 6:18 PM
Cool! How about I'll put in some suggestion phrases. This is my list: Can you please be my friend? I love Toontown Rewritten! I'll play with you! Like my gags? Your a high toon! Can you help me fight cogs? I have a toontask. Do you need a toontask? I hope the makers of Toontown Rewritten make more things! Popcornbud suggested some of these phrases! Please add some of these! I will be happy. I want to be in the helping with you :). I also wanted the Race Game! Its my favorite :). I hope I can play soon :D BYE!

Misty said on November 1, 2013 at 6:19 PM
i love the last speedchat phrase lol, you guys are so awesome doing this for us

Fluffy said on November 1, 2013 at 6:26 PM
How about bringing back the "PHOTO FUN" game? It was my favorite!!! How about being able to buy a car or scooter to drive around our estates? A garage for our estate house? More rooms in our house? The ability to sit down/lay down on our furniture? There should be more Toontasks for higher level Toons not only "JUST FOR FUN" Toontasks. It gets boring not having any goals left.

Whipcream said on November 1, 2013 at 6:32 PM
Wow! Great job! At this rate, TTR will be out before you can say, "Fantabulistical work!" (Fantastic and fabulous with a couple other confusing things to add on to the time, just incase! c:)

Roxy Foxy Lizard said on November 1, 2013 at 6:50 PM
Please include more phrases such as "Use a(n) [gag name]" to make it easier to communicate during battles. For example, more specific gag phrases: "Please use a fog horn." "Please use lure". "Please use sound". "I'm going to use an aoogah", etc. I'd be really happy to see more needed phrases implemented into the game to enhance communication without speedchat plus. Maybe even district phrases like, "I'm going to go to [insert district name]."

Noel (Rewritten) said on November 1, 2013 at 8:07 PM
Speechless. I am so happy and very incontrollable at this point. Please, don't cancel this project. :D

Dr.Cat said on November 1, 2013 at 8:23 PM
Everyday I see this I want to play it... Alpha why you no hurry up!

Rosa said on November 1, 2013 at 9:09 PM
This is perfect for our younger members of the game! Keep up the good work!

Princess Cuddles said on November 1, 2013 at 10:08 PM
I love the new phrases, and the new camera angles on the Race Game! Thanks so much for the update! :)

Walter D. Duck said on November 1, 2013 at 11:16 PM
If you don't already have one; an easy way to tell chat less players "they need a promotion" would be useful. On several occasions chat less players thought they were not getting invited. When they still needed a promo. Getting them to understand was sometimes difficult. Saying "Let's go to the mint." repeatedly usually worked but it draws unnecessary attention to their mistake. Thank you and have a Great day!

Fireball Dandydoodle said on November 1, 2013 at 11:55 PM
Excited to play. I was actually in development of my own version of ToonTown, but I can see that you guys are much further ahead than myself, so I don't see much point in starting mine. What language do you guys use for the 3-D coding?

Kitty Galore said on November 2, 2013 at 12:04 AM
Toontown rewritten looks like it's going to be great! Looking forward to play.

Bismouth said on November 2, 2013 at 3:43 AM
Wow! Keep up the good work! I would love this game if they make everyone being able to have all 7 gag types. Thank you for all your hard work! It's more than what I could imagine! Once again, keep up the good work! Thanks!

Punchy Mouse said on November 2, 2013 at 4:13 AM
This should be fun!

Billybobjoe said on November 2, 2013 at 4:43 AM
Awesome! can't for TTR to be released!

Mike Jr. said on November 2, 2013 at 5:05 AM
I want to play this. So i can't wait for the game to be realesed to the public

Fireheart said on November 2, 2013 at 5:29 AM
I can't wait for the update to come out! Also, the speedchat upgrades will be so useful. I hate trying to communicate with some toons, they just don't comprehend what I'm saying. Thank you!

The Lorde said on November 2, 2013 at 5:52 AM
Very nice! Still waiting for this to go public :) You guys are doing a great job.

Miranda said on November 2, 2013 at 5:56 AM
Yay again! When will type chat be added? I wanna get that :)

CrazyCoconut said on November 2, 2013 at 6:03 AM
This is going to be such a good game! Thank you toontown rewritten staff!

Hermione said on November 2, 2013 at 6:11 AM
I think a game that should be added is the Photo fun game. I really liked this game! I think it would be awesome to play it in ttr

Melody said on November 2, 2013 at 6:17 AM
So we're only allowed to make black cats on Halloween? :o

Little Domino said on November 2, 2013 at 6:44 AM
It seems really great! Hopefully, since there will only be speedchat, there won't be anyone in toon valley trying to do game shows :/ That always got me so mad in original toontown. Good luck!

The Fart said on November 2, 2013 at 7:03 AM
You guys have done well.

Snow Wolf said on November 2, 2013 at 7:17 AM
I'm so happy that another game is coming out! Its been tough for me to not be able to see my friends! Toons are nice, cogs are bad, Sir max is sweet and so is the company! Toons of the world Unite!

Tyman said on November 2, 2013 at 7:17 AM
I believe you should add the phrase "A lot", "not much", and "Quite a bit" to speed chat because they would be responses to the have you crashed question.

Joy said on November 2, 2013 at 8:11 AM
Wow! This is so awesome! Can't wait to be in Toontown Rewritten and using those phrases! :D

awsomeness said on November 2, 2013 at 9:02 AM
I have an idea for the game, why not make black a color option for ALL animals? I have seen black ducks, pigs, dogs cats etc... And annual! Not just Halloween!

Buzzy said on November 2, 2013 at 10:04 AM
Awesome! Sir Max is the greatest! I absolutely love these SpeedChat Phrases he wrote!

Fluffy Bumpenteeth said on November 2, 2013 at 10:04 AM
I love how you're keeping us updated every day about how the game's doing. Everyone is doing a fantastic job on this! I hope to play in the future!

Listenup said on November 2, 2013 at 10:11 AM
Can you please add a 'Yes' response to the chat?

Radioactive said on November 2, 2013 at 10:25 AM
Hey, these phrases are so cool! I can't wait to be able to play TTRW!

Stella said on November 2, 2013 at 10:25 AM
I can only applaud!

Kittoodle said on November 2, 2013 at 10:32 AM
Finally! Those old Toontown phrases were extremely difficult to communicate with!

Superspeedy Fireball said on November 2, 2013 at 10:58 AM
Ooh, I can't wait for the public release of this game... all I hope is that it happens this month!

melody pinkerswirl said on November 2, 2013 at 11:03 AM
For SpeedChat Phrases you should use: "I don't understand you.", "What's that beautiful toon? Oh, it's me!", and "Something doesn't smell right and it's not just me." Thanks! I hope you use 'em! Sorry if they're kinda bad...

Mellow Minor said on November 2, 2013 at 11:16 AM
awesome! im keeping up-to-date by checking the website every day, and i can see that you guys are working hard. thanks

Cosmic Fireball said on November 2, 2013 at 11:26 AM
This already sounds better than the first toontown

Prof. Milton said on November 2, 2013 at 11:35 AM
Now when the game releases we can tell if someone can only use Speedchat!

DeeDee Fiddlefish said on November 2, 2013 at 11:35 AM
You guys are doing a great job so far! Toontown Rewritten will be great!

trixie said on November 2, 2013 at 1:17 PM
You know, ever since Toontown ended, I had to keep telling my self. "Don't cry because it ended, smile because it happened." But I just couldn't do it. but now, I CANT STOP SMILING! :D THANKS GUYS! I thought i would never see toontown again! I played it for 8 years! that was my childhood so yeah i was depressed every time I'd think of it. But my friend told me about this, and now i cannot wait!! I love you guys! XD

Bpmbshell said on November 2, 2013 at 1:25 PM
Props to the Toontown RW developers to keep us updated. They're already super busy and it's nice to know that they aren't already forgetting about us. Can't wait to play when it's released!

Tan said on November 2, 2013 at 1:32 PM
When is the official release coming out? (When you don't need a key anymore.)

Princess cutie said on November 2, 2013 at 5:11 PM
Can you PLEASE put back trolly tracks?! :) it was so fun! And put back the old toon animations?

bailey said on November 2, 2013 at 5:15 PM
put back old toon animations? Disney removed it in 2010

slippy61334 said on November 3, 2013 at 7:16 AM

Little Miss Coconut said on November 3, 2013 at 8:10 AM
The last speedchat phrase made me giggle. Can't wait to use them!

Cool Melody Fizzle Doodle said on November 3, 2013 at 12:45 PM
Im so excited!!! You guys are doing an amazing job! :)

Callidus said on November 3, 2013 at 1:47 PM

Jinx said on November 3, 2013 at 6:13 PM
Cool. I can't wait until the game opens!

ScorchKit said on November 7, 2013 at 5:50 AM
Will we be able to use Freechat? Like in old toontown, when we could type out things?
