Super Saturday: The Final Countdown

Posted by Sir Max on January 18, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Oh man, don't you just love these late updates? I'll tell you, today I've got an excuse for it, though! Hang onto your socks and get your selfies ready, because -- hang on. I just realized that we don't have socks. Hrm, I'm going ot need to come up with something new now. Hang onto your... toes? -- My word, we don't have toes either.

The point is, this update is pretty darn awesome. In fact, it is the second of three Major Alpha Milestones!



As we told you a while ago, there are three main hurdles to conquer throughout Alpha development. First, we had out loading system. (Check!) Next, we have Estates (Double Check!). And finally, the third and final hurdle is the Battle System. (Not so check.) You heard me right, folks. Construction of toon houses is finally completed!.

Each toon of Toontown has been given an area of private land for their own house, along with some nearby houses for close friends and family to move into. They come in various colors, too! I'm telling you, it's true art to look at.

Speaking of true art -- Actuallyyy! I'm going to do a cliffhanger here and stop talking about what I was about to mention. Get excited! Wait a few paragraphs and you'll see what it is. Instead, I'm going to burst your bubble for a moment and clarify that we aren't providing furniture for houses. Mostly because it turns out that there are no furniture stores whatsoever in all of Toontown. But hey: At least you have the floor. And uh, walls. Ceiling too- can't forget the ceiling. So I'd say that you've got a pretty good house going on there.

Now, let's get back to that true art. Open up your handy-dandy Shtickerbook, and tell me what you see. Are you seeing it? You bet you are. The Shticker Book now has a brand new Snapshots Page to manage the various selfies you take around Toontown. Right now you can view all photos you have taken, as well as give them captions to find them with ease. This just the beginning, though. We have some big plans for this page in the upcoming future, and we can't wait to hear your feedback to make it better.

Stick around this week, as we have some pretty awesome stuff to unveil for Estates, the Snapshots page, and much more. We're in the final stretch of alpha, folks, and these last set of updates will be the best yet!

January 18, 2014 [ttr-alpha-g82711b4]

Maintenance:
Major Update: Estates, one of the more complex parts of Toontown, are now complete!
• Change the in-game cursor to a glove, as it was in Disney's Toontown
• Add an icon to the game window
• Switch screenshots back to JPG due to some kinks in the client
• Code cleanup

Bugfixes:
• Fix an issue with friend request timeouts

Features
• Implement basic Toon Estates
Currently, estates don't have too many features other than a private place to talk and explore. More and more features for estates will arrive in the coming days. The main hurdle here was completing the loading system for estates, which is fairly complex.

• Add a new page to the Shtickerbook: Snapshots!

• You can now view all snapshots you have taken in-game from the Shtickerbook
• Add ability to rename and delete snapshots
• Add button to open your TTR screenshot folder

Wow! A page dedicated to screenshots. That is a nice edition.

Rocco Snifflepounce said on January 18, 2014 at 2:36 PM
Awesome! Keep up the great work!

Baron Sniffy Snorkelpounce said on January 18, 2014 at 2:37 PM
This is just awesome! I can't wait until they get this finished so I can start my life as a Toon again!

PJ said on January 18, 2014 at 2:38 PM
You guys just made my day! Thank you for all you are doing!

Baron Ricky Thundergadget said on January 18, 2014 at 2:38 PM
I'm so glad that you finished the second milestone! I hope the battle system finishes soon, but why do toons need to battle? Hmm....

Smirky Bumberpop said on January 18, 2014 at 2:38 PM
The best Alpha Update so far! GREAT work guys! :D

King Spike Purple Bee said on January 18, 2014 at 2:44 PM
Awesome! I just wanted to say thank you to everyone working on toontown rewritten. It means alot to all of us!

Picklyjoe said on January 18, 2014 at 2:45 PM
Its everyones dream, a pie on every plate and a house for every toon. Now all i need is a key for my house. Just kidding take as long as you need and great work.

Epic said on January 18, 2014 at 2:45 PM
The end is coming! The end of alpha is coming! IT'S COMING!!!

Marcy said on January 18, 2014 at 2:46 PM
Great work! I am so excited about this game! I know it's just gonna be great! Again, AWESOME work as always! :)

Macks said on January 18, 2014 at 2:46 PM
To improve the estates maybe you can make it so you can spend jellybeans to link one friends estates to yours. and you can add as many friends to the estate complex (plz call it that :3) as you can. either make them pay all times but with less jellybeans for 3, 4, 5, so on, or you only have to pay once, but either way all need approval and be able to unlink it. But it's just an idea and i know i'm rambling by this point so just experiment with it a little if you think it's a good idea.

Flippenflip said on January 18, 2014 at 2:51 PM
Awesome work, guys! I'm glad to see major updates! (especially those cog battles) I'm also glad to see alpha coming to an end, I'm excited to play!

Ryan said on January 18, 2014 at 2:53 PM
What about clarabelles shop? She has furniture.

Dacion said on January 18, 2014 at 2:58 PM
Maybe you could actually make the friends houses come true. Have friends and family be at the same estate if both toon agrees on it.

Midnite Star said on January 18, 2014 at 3:04 PM
This is such a great update!I love the idea of a page in the Shticker book for snapshots. cant wait to play. c:

Princess Jabbertwist said on January 18, 2014 at 3:13 PM
How exciting! All this work you guys are putting in is great. Everything is coming together so fast, and I'm really excited for the next stage of development!!!

Heigh Horse said on January 18, 2014 at 3:41 PM
Gadzooks! Finally, the second milestone! Say, you haven't seen any strange robots around here have you?

Aqua Dog said on January 18, 2014 at 4:02 PM
Amazing now estates can be accessed. Next up the Battle System.

Fireheart said on January 18, 2014 at 4:28 PM
And so my thirst for toontown updates is quenched. Oh my god, guys, you are all amazing. I can only imagine how hard estates would be, and your next daunting task will be even harder. Battles. I can't believe we are even NEAR this point, it's been no time at all, and I am so excited for the final strech of alpha to be cleared and for the beta to start up soon. And that snapshot page sounds wonderful, you have no idea how many pics I had of odd glitches that I just could never find in some odd part of my computer. Seriously. I don't think there is anyone here that would disagree, you guys are saints.

Ginger said on January 18, 2014 at 4:34 PM
I know what would be a good things with these selfies! Why not share them with friends of yours? Yeah your right! I'm saying why not have your custom gallery of snapshots that your friends can also see! Just one idea from my head.

Tyler said on January 18, 2014 at 4:54 PM
This is like, the best update so far, keep working ttr, i wanna play!

Ant Samantha said on January 18, 2014 at 5:02 PM
I don't care if Alpha is stretched out for months longer! You guys are making great progress; implementing in a matter of months what took Disney 10 years to do. I'm sure your own ideas will be even better; keep up the good work!

Freckles said on January 18, 2014 at 5:08 PM
Oh my whiskers! I'm so excited right now I'm literally shaking in my shoes and twitching with excitement. This is day ever! I wonder if i will be able to play in the Beta Version of this cool game? Keep up to the hard work.

mew4ever23 said on January 18, 2014 at 5:11 PM
Screenshot management, you say? Right from the schicker book? SWEET.

Cucumber said on January 18, 2014 at 6:53 PM
I have a great idea! I think laff meter should be changed to laugh track, you know, to fit the the whole cartoon comedy theme?

J.C FumbleFlapper said on January 18, 2014 at 7:17 PM
Now those toons can be indoors for the rest of the winter instead of the freezing outdoors! Glad to see that you guys are back in action!

Silver Forest Flower said on January 18, 2014 at 7:20 PM
How exciting! I am so wanting to play ToonTown rewritten. Hope it is open to everyone soon. Blessings! Silver

Daydream said on January 18, 2014 at 7:23 PM
This is so exciting, oh my gosh! :D It's such great news, toons will finally have a home to stay in! ^^ I'm so happy to hear about this! ^^

Melody Toon said on January 18, 2014 at 7:29 PM
This is great! Thank you for this and everything else that you've done- I appreciate it dearly. When Toontown Rewritten comes out, it'll be a point in life that I'll never forget ^^

Dexterous said on January 18, 2014 at 7:47 PM
Snapshots Page? That's a pretty cool and helpful feature for the Shtickerbook. I love the fact that you added a button where you can automatically open the folder that contains your screenshots, not having to manually go into your program files like in the original game. Keep up the good work guys. ?

Old Cheese said on January 18, 2014 at 8:17 PM
Wow you guys are the best can't wait for beta driving home from Dallas right now and I cannot wait to see future updates! You guys are so awesome! I would pay you all like $500 just to be in the alpha team! :D

Princess Furball said on January 18, 2014 at 10:11 PM
Snapshots page in Shtickerbook, that's Awesome! I love that idea, can't wait to be able to play TTRW. Thank you!

Greeny said on January 19, 2014 at 12:16 AM
I'm so excited. Can't wait to get back to Toontown. My 6 year old sister and 3 year old brother have been begging me to play toontown again and I keep saying it will come soon; I remember the days when I would sit there for hours with 2 laptops playing with them, those were the days... I'm just glad you guys are progressing,

Slate Blue Cat said on January 19, 2014 at 3:08 AM
Nice update, I'm sure I will be seeing my toon again, defeating Cogs and Cog Bosses! I can't wait until TTR comes out!

Good Ol' Duke said on January 19, 2014 at 4:29 AM
There is a small problem with this. And that is a car from the race tracks had run through my house, apparently it was on the road, and completely destroyed it. So, for future advice, don't build near race tracks. just saying.

Batty said on January 19, 2014 at 4:59 AM
I must say, all of you are doing a fantastic job, and I seriously cannot wait until the Beta comes out, and then the actual game!!

Logan said on January 19, 2014 at 6:42 AM
Finally houses have come! It was always so fun to edit my estate. But i hope you can make the limited amount of items you can have in an estate higher just like friends.

Game Magnum said on January 19, 2014 at 8:12 AM
Awesome, Joey! Keep up the good work in Pype, and Geany! (Those are two Python related coding Programs) ;)

Muchi said on January 19, 2014 at 8:50 AM
Hey everyone, been playing Toontown since 06' and I would just like to thank you so much for this. Great help to some people. I know people who fell into depression when this closed. Thank you! <3

Violet said on January 19, 2014 at 10:03 AM
I'm so excited! Toontown was one of the first games i've ever played! It's also was and still is my favorite game! I love the idea's your putting into the game! Keep going guys! :)

Funnybunny said on January 19, 2014 at 10:38 AM
Great idea to add a snapshots page in the Shtickerbook! It was way to hard to access them after you took them! I can't wait until Beta!!

Laughing Matter said on January 19, 2014 at 11:45 AM
I love it! This game is in such little time becoming everything it was supposed to be, and then some!

Miss Kit Lemonmuffin said on January 19, 2014 at 12:11 PM
So glad you guys are working so hard on this. I introduced toontown to my six year old nephew and a few months later when it left it wasn't easy to explain that to him. I can't wait to share that he can play again. I hope the family that played together over the states is keeping track of your progress, because it would be nice to know that the grandmother was playing with her grandchildren and great grandchildren again :-)

Crowfeather said on January 19, 2014 at 12:13 PM
And like Macks said, I would also like to link my estate with my friends estate. It would be cool to have a whole neighborhood of toons that aren't yours. And we should just have all the toons that a toon has created to share the same house and jellybeans, it would be easier and neater.

Prof. Dynomash said on January 19, 2014 at 1:21 PM
I love being able to keep up with you guys' progress! Keep up the good work <3

Super Snuffy Lemonnose said on January 19, 2014 at 1:50 PM
It's awesome to see this game come together!

Macrockentoon said on January 19, 2014 at 2:12 PM
Good job Toon Council, this is the best update yet. You have done an outstanding job. All that hard work is definitely going to pay off.

Glowing Seed said on January 19, 2014 at 2:33 PM
Can't wait for beta to come out!!! May these last alpha updates be the best :D

Princess Taffy Trickymooch said on January 19, 2014 at 3:38 PM
So excited! I can't wait to wake up in the morning and realize that ToonTown has returned! :D

Nicole said on January 19, 2014 at 3:54 PM
Man this is so exciting! I can't wait to get in to TTR and have a BLAST! I'm already planning on recreating my old main toon, along with finally making and maxing a toon with drop!!! Keep the pies flying!

Silas said on January 19, 2014 at 4:29 PM
yes! one of the best updates!

Sunkist said on January 19, 2014 at 7:07 PM
The pace you guys are working at is amazing. I was playing Toontown since it released in 2003 when I was 7, and played it off and on until it closed, and am still a die-hard fan of it. I can't wait for it to come into beta stage so more people can get a first hand look at the work you guys are putting into this game. Everyday I look at this site, waiting for posts like this. Cannot wait.

Magical Jelly said on January 20, 2014 at 7:58 AM
Thank you for everything you've done. It's truely a miracle to have people in this world like you. So much heart, so much dedication.

Master Jellyroll Lemondoodle said on January 20, 2014 at 8:16 AM
As a toontown veteran from 2003-, I salute you kind people for bringing back my favorite game and it's memories.

Beanie Baby said on January 20, 2014 at 2:20 PM
Um wasn't there another "final countdown" post? Is this like "the final countdown: redux" or something?

Surge said on January 20, 2014 at 5:20 PM
Sounds awesome! Can't wait for public release!

Fat Twinklestink said on January 22, 2014 at 5:09 PM
Thanks for bringing this to life. Can't wait ! Thanks!

Werd Winkey said on January 22, 2014 at 5:51 PM
i'm now running around my house like an idot

Greeh said on January 22, 2014 at 7:52 PM
YES! Toontown rewritten is almost going to be realsed to the public! You guys are awesome!!!

Isabella said on January 24, 2014 at 3:48 PM
Yay!!! I almost squealed reading this because that's so exciting and fun! Thank you, Toontown Rewritten crew!

skippy megapow said on January 24, 2014 at 8:12 PM
