Super Saturday: The Fellowship of The Bean

Posted by Sir Max on January 11, 2014 at 2:00 PM

gahh... ahhh.. Wha- we- We made it?

We made it?! Guys, we're back! It's Toontown! I told you that I knew where I was going.



Heyo, heyo, heyo toons. Boy, was that one fun nature walk. And by fun, I mean that all of us nearly died on numerous occasions and I now have to go home and rethink every aspect of my life. So pretty much fun. Oof, I know, we've been gone a while. I planned a three-day hike, though we got a little sidetracked on the way...

So I mean, all was going well for the first ten minutes or so. Maybe seven. Shockley only threatened to throw Too Many Secrets off of a cliff twice, and some nice guys with masks on took all of our supplies. Since we needed some food, I decided to stop by a nearby pond and go fishing. I pulled up my fishing pole from the water, and you'll never guess what I found: A Jellybean! Kids just throw their money away these days.

Anyhoo, so the Jellybean turned out to be some sort of dark power forged by evil, yada yada yada, and we had to go to some volcano down a corridor to destroy it. One doesn't simply walk through a corridor. To get through it, we had to band together and form this Fellowship, or Friendship, of The Bean.

It turns out that friendship really is magic, because Goshi turned into some sort of wizard to help guide us. Well, sort of. He picked up this wizard hat at a convenient store on the way, and this staff with a lightbulb on top of it. Not exactly magic, I suppose. What is magic though is what we discovered on that journey together: Friendship. It's not just a cheesy line, nor a word to use with toons that you don't really know on Toonbook!

Friendship, in combination with Toon T.A.G.S., granted us the ability to see where we all were on this dark journey through a corridor, as well as allowing us to use Loony Lab's Portable Hole to teleport to each other. So yeah, the Jellybean might have been evil and driven us all against each other with greed and power, but we were driven against each other together. If that isn't friendship, I don't know what is.

I'm happy to report that the Bean has indeed been destroyed. We went through that corridor, we fought the monsters, and McQuack and I delivered the Bean safely to a giant molten pit of lava. We were stranded up there for a while, but Goshi came in with a few water hoses and put the fire out. We made our journey back to Toontown, and here we are now.

We may not have been able to build anything for you while we were on that nature walk of doom, but we've brought back the tooniful tidings of Friendship for everyone! Loony Labs has agreed to implement it into their Toon T.A.G.S. so you can passively-aggressively send a "Check Yes or No" note rather than directly asking someone to be your friend. You gotta love those scientists.

Now, if you excuse me, I need to go ahead and rethink my life and all of reality. See you tomorrow, toons!

January 11, 2014 [ttr-alpha-geb281eb]

Maintenance:
• Whitelist update to add a few new popular words
• Add new administrative features, as well as restricting a few spells that we had too much fun with.
• Remove a few calls to ToonTasks until they are implemented.
• Major backend architecture changes to prepare for upcoming updates. (We needed to clean up our mess before making a new one!)

Bugfixes:
• Stop the Toon Detail Panel from going into a strange position when playing in widescreen.
• Fix a crash when entering Silly Street

Features:
• Widescreen support for the Teleport Panel, among other small things we missed
• Updated the Pick-A-Toon screen graphic to look slightly better
• Toon T.A.G.S. Update!

• Never forget who your real friends are! You can now send friend requests to toons.
• Implement whispers to show when a friend comes online or logs off.
• Implement teleporting and whispering to friends. NOTE: Whispering is currently SpeedChat only.

• Removed Disney's 50 friend limit for alpha only. This limit will be added back in the future, but will be expanded to 75 or 100.

I can't wait for TTR to be open to public. I like where they are headed so far. :)

Funny Quackers said on January 11, 2014 at 2:14 PM
This is great! I hope it's in beta soon! Me and my little sister have been listening to toontown music through the toontown files I extracted, and talking about all our toony memories.

Fafe said on January 11, 2014 at 2:14 PM
Whoa I am a bit surprised that a little weanie bean could turn into that oh well i belibe you sir max I just hope that bean is GONE!

Princess Pearl SparkleToon said on January 11, 2014 at 2:15 PM
Wow, three days?!?! Hope you all are ok! This sounds fantastic guys! I can't wait to finally play after so long. I miss this game soooooo much! Keep up the great work everyone!

Zany Ray Thunderzilla said on January 11, 2014 at 2:16 PM
Oh Thank YOU!! your back. It will feel so weird to get an update everyday now.

Blotse said on January 11, 2014 at 2:18 PM
I hope you guys find a way to limit the requests, because I can imagine toons spamming the popular youtubers and live streamers.

Little Violet Preciousbubble said on January 11, 2014 at 2:18 PM
FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC!!! *le pony* Oh, and I also like the new friend list limitations. Finally, more people--I mean ponies-- to be friends with.

Princess Candy said on January 11, 2014 at 2:19 PM
Whoa three days??? Hope you all are ok! You guys are the best for doing this I love this game and have played since I was 7. Thanks guys! We love that you are doing this!

Marcy said on January 11, 2014 at 2:23 PM
I am laughing so much right now. The stories are almost always funny! Anyway, I am glad you guys got back from your "Soothing Nature Walk of Doom!" Great update. I think we will all passively-aggressively be clicking the yes or no buttons of friend requests! Again, great update, and I am glad that you found SOMETHING good from your Soothing Nature Walk of Doom :P

Darkstar said on January 11, 2014 at 2:25 PM
Finally we have friends list! About time it came, I'm glad TTR got this far.

Doctor lucky fuzzynugget said on January 11, 2014 at 2:28 PM
I am sad that I could not go on the nature walk

Lilboy said on January 11, 2014 at 2:30 PM
What? Only removing the 50 friends limit for alpha? Why cant you guys keep it like that when the game comes out? I mean, that was the most annoying part about ToonTown, only being able to have 50 friends...

Tom Bombadil (You should know) said on January 11, 2014 at 2:30 PM
The prodigal son returns. I surcome to tears at all the progress you have made. Always looking forward to the post. (Actually its the highlight of my day) Keep up the good work.

Roxy Whiskermuddle said on January 11, 2014 at 2:32 PM
Was that a Lord of the Rings reference I spotted? Haha, great blog post as always, guys. Keep up the good work! :3

Sir Frizzy Electrowhip said on January 11, 2014 at 2:33 PM
That explains why you took so long, i was wondering were you guys were!!!

Macks said on January 11, 2014 at 2:33 PM
Yay bigger limit to friends! That's the best part of the update. :3

Master Nathan said on January 11, 2014 at 2:33 PM
Wow, seems you're making great progress! Sorry about the bad nature walk! Good luck trying to finish the game and recover!

Valentine said on January 11, 2014 at 2:34 PM
Glad you guys are back and you enjoyed your break!

Hop said on January 11, 2014 at 2:36 PM
That's great that you are making the friend limit higher then 50 I like that idea

Tomboy Bunny said on January 11, 2014 at 2:38 PM
Oh, goodness me, thanks so much for the update! It will really prove useful, can't wait to have more than 50 friends!

Twinkledoodle said on January 11, 2014 at 2:40 PM
Sounds like Some Hike! Glad to see the updates will continue! Keep up the good work!

elizabeth said on January 11, 2014 at 2:41 PM
I really think for the whole toontown game you should have the friends limit be, well, something like 100 - 155. Not just for alpha. When the friend limit is 50, I hate having to delete friends just because I want to add someone else also!

Good Ol' Bonkers Kookeysticks said on January 11, 2014 at 2:42 PM
Please don't pull back the limit after Alpha! This would be so great if we were able to have more friends!

Awsomemonkey said on January 11, 2014 at 3:02 PM
THANK YOU SO MUCH TTR FOR EXPANDING OUR FRIENDS LIST!!!!! :)

a toon said on January 11, 2014 at 3:04 PM
best update ever... not i don't really like it but tbh you'll only approve positive comments won't you.

Clover Hulagrooven said on January 11, 2014 at 3:08 PM
AHHH! Lord of the beans! Love that movie. And yes, finally more than fifty friends! I know this is asking something, but in future can you have it say how long a friend has been off line? It would help a whole lot, and I know you guys are busy so it's really just a suggestion. thanks SO much for working so hard!

Magi said on January 11, 2014 at 3:31 PM
It's nice to see that friend requests were now added! Also glad that the friend limit is going to be expanded! You guys are amazing!

Deputy Astro Crunchy Nugget said on January 11, 2014 at 3:33 PM
Finally,you guys started posting.I missed you guys.I don't play toontown rewritten but I love it.Great to have you guys back!!

Greeny said on January 11, 2014 at 4:12 PM
Wow, a little bean with very powerful dark magic! probably it was the prophecy of the bean, that you would find it and DESTROY IT!

Master Loopy Bananamuffin said on January 11, 2014 at 4:37 PM
What!? You destroyed my precious!? I'M COMING FOR YOU MY PRECIOUS!!! *dives into lava* Anyhoo, great work on the Friends update!

patrick said on January 11, 2014 at 4:49 PM
That trip sounded horrifying. Glad to hear everyone is alive!

President Funnybone said on January 11, 2014 at 5:26 PM
Wow! Quite an impressive story, and quite an impressive update. I loved having friends in Toontown and I feel better knowing that I can add more than ever before! Although this week has been rather dull without hearing another great story by Sir Max, this story and this news was worth the wait. I am looking forward to seeing the progress of the game and sometime in the future playing it!

Alvin said on January 11, 2014 at 5:34 PM
OH BOY! I never thought that a bean as small as that could make something like THAT!

Bluestar said on January 11, 2014 at 5:50 PM
THANK YOU SO MUCH! The friend limit to me was always a letdown being only fifty but 100 is SO much better! Thank you!!

Ooowoo said on January 11, 2014 at 5:51 PM
You guys had quite an adventure on that nature walk. An evil bean? Goshi had wizard powers? I kinda wish I was there too. Hope you guys had fun!

Secret Toon said on January 11, 2014 at 6:07 PM
Whoa! Awesome update! Despite the slight dangers on your nature walk I hope you all had fun! (I hope you had a nice break, you guys deserved it!)

Princess Fluffy said on January 11, 2014 at 6:21 PM
Can't wait for more updates! Keep up the good work!!

Cooper said on January 11, 2014 at 6:23 PM
I keep checking the post for new information I can't wait to play...... I feel like I am going to miss the big opening day with all these blogs - I'm feeling my age lol (42 yrs) not as computer savvy as I used to be. Rofl!!

kai 7something said on January 11, 2014 at 6:38 PM
im from other toontown that closed if you want to be my friend again meet me at toontown central in the middle when ttrw opens. i want my old strong and weak toon friends bach :(

Bad Luck said on January 11, 2014 at 6:54 PM
I'm the one that threw the jellybean in the pond. :/

Sheriff Peaches Crunchenfish said on January 11, 2014 at 7:24 PM
Ironically, I'm reading Fellowship of the Ring right now! Also, great update, and great way to take an original concept and improve it! Now to see how the Flippy vs. Slappy election is going.

Sweetie said on January 11, 2014 at 7:41 PM
Man, whenever I go on Nature Walks all that happens is that I get Poison Ivy, Bug Bites, Scratches from things like thorns and branches and falling, being burnt in the sun, getting overheated, and so on. Yet you guys go on an adventure

Josie said on January 11, 2014 at 7:47 PM
Oh my gosh, Im so glad you guys are back!

crazy nuttyflap said on January 11, 2014 at 9:00 PM
Dont know what id do with out you guys. Rewriting my toons story sounds awesome but saddenning at the same time :')

midnight1888 said on January 11, 2014 at 9:24 PM
More friends !!! Thank you for saving me the trouble of making room on my friend list. One of the best thing that happens to the Community

Oscar Paddlesnoop said on January 11, 2014 at 9:55 PM
Welcome back Guys !!!! Glad you kept that weanie beanie out of the hands of that Evil Lord Sour-On !! One of my other toons I played was Gandalf, so I know he will be happy about that ! Love that you are expanding the friends list ! I hate dropping toon friends also, but I like Clover Hulagrooven's idea. Some people quit playing altogether. So if you could see that, it would make it much easier to manage your ACTUAL Friends List. Thanks a ton !!

Whipcream said on January 11, 2014 at 10:37 PM
It's great to see the updates again! Going a few days without a word probably made everyone realize how lucky we are to be getting any at all. It made me. We're lucky to have TTR.

Doctor Blake Ruffton said on January 11, 2014 at 11:29 PM
Both a LOtR and an MLP reference? Man, you guys rock.

Mantux said on January 12, 2014 at 12:21 AM
Yay! Biggest friend limit! I think TTR is better than TT, Can't wait for this game come public !!

Foxrally said on January 12, 2014 at 1:51 AM
Oh, so I see one of you turned into "Gag"dolf! BLAHAHAHAHAH....hahahah... hah... sorry. I'm really excited for the next key giveaway. Nice update though! You guys are adding new things to TTR even when it's in alpha!

Amradel said on January 12, 2014 at 5:30 AM
Aha, love this post and all the references to LOTR! xD (Huge Lotr and The Hobbit fan here. ;D)

PrincessBooBooBagelBee said on January 12, 2014 at 6:16 AM
This is awesome. I cant wait until its opened to the public. I really want to play! Me and my sister have been playing on it since we were little. We cant wait for it to come back. Ive been humming the theme song for a while now remembering all of our memories. Shes always been ahead of me, but now I think im going to be ahead now. :p

Squeaker said on January 12, 2014 at 6:19 AM
Hope you enjoyed your adventurous nature walk, guys! You deserved that break and we all can't wait what you will have in store for us in the future!

vill said on January 12, 2014 at 6:32 AM
This rabbit call slate blue rabbit has a advice those toons without alpha keys.Why don't you watch the videos of toontown rewritten?It keeps you intrested.

Rainbow Berry said on January 12, 2014 at 6:54 AM
Welcome back! Hope you all had fun! Well! It seems that friendship really is magic! ( Do you get the reference? ) Now we can experience it for ourselves! Brilliant! This is so cool! Thanks a million!

Kitty Lue said on January 12, 2014 at 7:41 AM
I'm so glad the friendship limit will be higher than 50! Because, although you can't realistically know more than 350 people at a time, you can know more than 50 people and not want to delete anyone from your friends list to add a new friend. Can't wait for Beta and then Public Release!

AndyTechGuy said on January 12, 2014 at 7:44 AM
I love how you supported widescreen. The black bars on the side of the screen always bugged me so I had to play in windowed mode. Now I can put it in full screen and enjoy the real power of my screen res!

Sweetie Paul said on January 12, 2014 at 8:09 AM
Funny Quackers that's what me and my sister do ( except the music part ) we wish beta will come really Soon

Old Cheese said on January 12, 2014 at 8:26 AM
Lol, that's pretty cool. I think that the friends list should be more organized, you know, like if you click the icon, instead of just like online and offline, player online/offline, and doodles... It could have like true friends, family members, and staff member friends!

Macrockentoon said on January 12, 2014 at 8:44 AM
Thank you Toon Council for making this game ALIVE! I just can't wait for the game to come out. Oh the Toontastic memories.

Harvey said on January 12, 2014 at 9:08 AM
WOW!!! Nice update guys, I love The Lord of the rings movies. So your fellowship of the bean story was awesome. You guys are working so hard on the game and I really really appreciate it. I have a suggestion that if you have more than 50 friends, you should have a search thing on the top of you friends list. So you can search for a friend instead of having to find them. THANKS TO SIR MAX AND EVERYONE WHO IS WORKING ON TTR!!!

Bumbersnout said on January 12, 2014 at 9:28 AM
It's crazy playing for 7 years and now i cant but i'm so excited for it to be released again! I miss it soon much but yall be safe now

Cool domino fuzzy foot said on January 12, 2014 at 11:39 AM
Phew, I'm glad you guys are back. I have been worrying about you guys. Is this something about the hobbit or something:D

Prince Frizzy said on January 12, 2014 at 11:49 AM
75 or 100 friends? WHOA! The is going to be tonntastic!

Alex R. said on January 12, 2014 at 12:25 PM
I'm so excited for the release! You guys have been working so hard and I know tons of toons will be excited to play the improved version of our childhood game.

Noisy Yellow Duck said on January 12, 2014 at 1:10 PM
Finally an update! Can't wait to see what is in store for us... love how the friend limit will be increased!!

Rusti said on January 12, 2014 at 1:54 PM
I have a question: Do you think you could make Black Doodles? I've always wanted one to make it's name Shadow! Thanks! ~Rusti

ms awesome said on January 12, 2014 at 2:35 PM
thank good your back. its weird that we all miss you after a week :-)

Glowing Seed said on January 12, 2014 at 2:54 PM
One of the things I loved in Toontown was my friends. The only thing I didn't like about it was the limit. Good job for brining back friends and promising to expand the limit!

Poetic Justice said on January 12, 2014 at 3:39 PM
I cannot say enough how glad I am you guys are not only expanding the friends list, but also just making this! I love you guys so much! Can't wait for it to go Beta soon :)

Jennaboo said on January 12, 2014 at 3:44 PM
Ha ha ha! I love it! Though you have spoiled a really good book series for me... D:!! Its okay, though. I cant wait for Toontown rewritten to be opened to public for my cousin!

Princess Anna Kitty:D said on January 12, 2014 at 4:46 PM
Fellowship of the bean! Lol my little bro is completely into those movies!!! A.k.a. Hobbit and lord of the rings!! Lol I love it!!

Trixie said on January 12, 2014 at 5:19 PM
No! We must make as many friends as we can! Expand the lists to 100 or more! 50 is a horrible number because your best friends are never on, and you have to delete them to make room for new friends. A nightmare, honestly! Please. 100+ friends!

Moon River said on January 12, 2014 at 7:26 PM
Toontastic, I hope you guy will release beta version soon! I'm so happy because I can make more friends with other toon!

dee dee dandy said on January 12, 2014 at 10:46 PM
1/11/2014 just found the web page I am so happy I am crying... thank you for all the hard work..... I can wait..to tell the grand kids we can play online again soon

princess candy said on January 13, 2014 at 12:02 AM
you guys must have been watching lord of the rings instead of walking! like fellowship of the ring is a lord or the rings movie and urs is fellowship of the bean! wow ive never heard such a great reference! good job with toon town

princess candy said on January 13, 2014 at 12:05 AM
oh almost forgot but i was thinking about wat could make toontown even better and remembered watching this vid on how the old toontown was going to make different houses like a cupcake house a house with a porch and a tiki house so on and so forth but any way i was wondering if u could do that and add alittle more variaty to the toony houses! thanks! and good luck with the project lord or the rings ppl!

Little Trixie Gigglemuffin said on January 13, 2014 at 9:54 AM
Omg this post made me laugh so much! I needed that! I'm so glad you guys made it back safe and sound, though! And friendship is the BEST medicine. <3 I hope that bean stays locked up forever... And another one isn't found.

burgerisgamer said on January 13, 2014 at 11:13 AM
im so glad you are bringing toontown back. i hope beta comes soon because i want to play this again. it was my childhood

Cream said on January 13, 2014 at 12:31 PM
im totally exited for toontown rewritten. i told my friend about it and she said that she wants to sign up so we can play together. she said it sounded super fun. I hope it comes out soon!

Shadow said on January 13, 2014 at 1:20 PM
You guys are progressing very well and I hope I can have my childhood back very soon. Thanks for all your work! :)

John said on January 13, 2014 at 3:32 PM
I was hoping you'd increase the maximum toon friends list, thank you for that!

little whore said on January 13, 2014 at 6:28 PM
LOL. This post made me laugh. No joke. Christmas songs are my most FAVORITE. I'd so go caroling if I had people to come with me... XD I don't sing alone. Anyways, glad to see you got everything fixed. Be careful, Sir Max, we don't want to see you in the hospital for a broken voice box.

Sheriff popcorn wackymuffin said on January 13, 2014 at 7:38 PM
Is the "friendship is magic" thing a reference to the TV show "My little pony FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC"?

Mew Shall Not Pass said on January 17, 2014 at 1:59 PM
This is the perfect update. Just. My name makes this even better oh my gosh.

Barrington Wampstead said on January 18, 2014 at 1:03 AM
Cool! You guys are doing a brilliant job! I hope Toontown Rewritten will be realised soon - I cant wait! :)
