May 2021 Progress Update
Hello everyone! Welcome to our May 2021 Progress Update! I am Prof McMouse, Support Lead of Toontown Offline, and I will be going through what has been happening behind the scenes these past two months!
As stated in the March 2021 Progress Update, a lot of reforms behind the scenes have happened, which we have been smoothing out, and now, in tandem to this blog post, we are releasing a new update, v18.104.22.168, which adds a complete make-over to the Options Page! However, that’s not all that has been worked on throughout April and May!
Options Page Revamp Our Options Page Revamp is one of the main parts of v22.214.171.124, with a whole new bunch of settings available for people to mess around with and customize. This new update includes:
- The Options page available on the Pick-a-Toon screen.
- Information on some settings that may be confusing to some users, and whether they impact on performance.
- New Video Settings that makes Toontown Offline look as good as ever!
- Retro Mode Settings now accessible in-game.
- New settings that let you change the scale and background color of the Shtickerbook.
Create-a-Cog Based on an old YouTube video, we attempted to recreate the Cog Creation part of that video in-game, which we were able to achieve, and released it late on April 1st, with it being accessible on the Create-a-Toon on that date. We hope you all enjoyed that update!
A new challenge from the Cogs While v126.96.36.199 is not including this skyscraper, we can show work that has been happening for the exterior of the building. Coming alongside this building is a redesigned upper area of the Toontown Outskirts to have the building fit in a little better, and some optimization for the area itself, the latter of which is actually available in v188.8.131.52. We hope to soon show you more of the interior soon!
Other Features Unfortunately, not much work has been done on the other features like Sellbot Showdown or the Revamped Magic Menu at this time, as we are currently focusing on finishing up those two features first, but we hope in the future we can show more progress on these parts.
And that is all for this month’s Progress Update! We hope you enjoy v184.108.40.206, and hope to have many of the other features mentioned ready for our next major update, v220.127.116.11, and we would also like to thank you for your continued support for Toontown Offline, especially throughout these past few months!
