Update 3.5.0 is Here, There, and Everywhere!

Posted by Detective Dirge on September 16, 2022 at 2:45 PM

Oh, WOE is me! BEHOLD, Toontown -- it is I, Detective Dirge, one most plagued by DREADFUL knowledge and mysteries of the land! What does it all mean? Boxes of juke, Districts of safes… and just WHAT, exactly, is a ‘Diss cord?’ Unlike the other duck detective, Samantha Spade, I have a very UNserious way of going about my detective work. Allow me, myself, and I guide you through unpacking this most UNSCRUPULOUS mystery -- the Most Mysterious 3.5.0 Update!


Admittedly, it’s not that mysterious… at all… I just added that part for DRAMATIC EFFECT! There is however, MUCH to unpack. Let us begin with the tale… of silence. Yes, once upon a case solved by yours truly, my path crossed upon the locale of a Toon estate. To my shock, I was greeted with nothing… but SILENCE. No music, not a note. The memory of this lack of music irks me to this day! A resident of the Melodyland cannot STAND for that! So, I SAT down, and wrote to the Cattlelog with plans to not only BRING Jukeboxes to the estate, but also add NEW music to them! You can pick up this brand-new rental in your Cattlelog -- along with the other brand-new rental, Beach Balls! I realized that Toons don’t just want TUNES, they want more fun, and what’s more fun than even more rentals? In fact, fear not about choosing between them: you may now have multiple rentals at once!

Now let us turn the page to the next tale, as that was only ONE of the many in this (not very) mysterious update! I was recently tipped off about a PLOT being put together in Cashbot HQ. You see, the C.F.O. hasn't had much heat put on him since Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters, so he’s been up to ALL kinds of nonsense. Documents I snatched directly from the Cashbot Vault reveal that the Cashbots have been MEDDLING with our safes -- safe and super-safe Districts as you knew them are no more! Thankfully, I alerted Toon Hall JUST in time, and they’re implementing a replacement as we speak! From now on, some safe Districts will NOT contain any invasions, and some will NOT contain any events. This also makes Toontown a bit SAFE-r for new Toons, which is a win. Is this some sort of CONSPIRACY by the Cogs to make things easier for us Toons? 

Next, I turned my suspicion to Lawbot HQ. As far as I know, that C.J. is just SITTING THERE all day… What’s REALLY going on behind the scenes, though? As it turns out… not much. Retrying Bumpy Bumblebehr OVER and OVER again seems to take up all his time… Other than that, Ambulance Chasers recently got a pay cut, meaning SUBSTANTIALLY less crashes -- in Cog HQs and Facilities, of course! My little birdie tells me this accounts for about 79% of all crashes in Cog Facilities. They’ll NEVER be able to stop us from infiltrating their headquarters at this point!

And at long last, it’s the last piece of this 3.5.0 puzzle -- BEHOLD! The Rich Presence of Discord! My intel indicates that if you have Discord Integration enabled in your settings, Discord’s Rich Presence will now show more detail on your account! BUT! That isn’t what’s interesting here. As it turns out, you can now use Discord to invite Toons to your Boarding Groups AND your estate -- they don’t even have to be on your Friends List! Joining something on Discord will also teleport you DIRECTLY to the group or estate you’re joining!

I’ve ALMOST cracked this case… I just need a few more seconds… YES, it’s all coming to me now! All of this can only mean one thing -- this update is packed with some brand-new features that are sure to RAMP UP the FUN you’re having during this Cartoonival season! Be sure to check out the patch notes below for the full scoop. As for me, though… I’ve got more work to do. There’s ALWAYS more work to do in the streets of this town. Until next time, Toontown -- it’s back into the shadows for me. And remember, I may be Zither Here Nor There… but I am ALWAYS everywhere.

Kiki Razzlecrumbs said on September 16, 2022 at 2:57 PM

This is a great update, really! I'm especially excited for the Discord integration and the jukebox! Though, I'm going to miss running up to the demoted CEO Flunky and celebrating our victory next to him...

Christmas Joy said on September 16, 2022 at 3:30 PM
What a cool and fun update!!

Minimal Bear said on September 16, 2022 at 3:30 PM
Cool updates! But when will "glooo" be added to the whitelist for chat? Please! I really want "glue" for lure and the "ooo" sound effect at the same time.

BezKa said on September 16, 2022 at 3:32 PM
Wow!!! That's so many good QoL changes! Thanks so much!

Billy Quackington said on September 16, 2022 at 3:35 PM
This doesn't seem to appeal to some of the training toons, but we'll see if we can work it around.

Pierre said on September 16, 2022 at 3:49 PM
Read through this and all I can say is thank you so much! So many welcome changes coming, totally excited for 3.5.0! Just in time for Monday. :)

Megasnoop said on September 16, 2022 at 4:33 PM
Very cool!

Cute Little Duck said on September 16, 2022 at 4:56 PM
Thanks so much for the new safe districts system. Nothing is more aggravating then entering a building because you need Loan Sharks or whatever and then an invasion starts and there goes your chances of getting any Loan Sharks. I don't know how possible this is, but it would be fantastic if the entire system of ToonHQ.org be integrated within the Shticker Book. I know they're a 3rd party but if it's possible it would be a huge convenience. Not to mention the teleportation to where your group is would likely be easier to implement if ToonHQs code was baked into the game. Thanks again for everything.

Wildson said on September 16, 2022 at 5:17 PM
Really appreciate all your hard work. It's a joy being able to play Toontown with my kids again. Just let the community know if you guys need anything. Thanks again.

I’m so happy to see this game get retailer updates, even fun small things like adding music to the estate.

Awesome update!! Thank you all for the hard work!

Mister Fluffy Dynoteeth said on September 17, 2022 at 12:33 AM
I didn't even know it was possible to do that with the Discord integration! That is beyond cool! Especially for an "unofficial" fan game. Super impressed, and I'd like to see more of that kind of thing, that is, third party integrations like that. If there are more cool things you can do with Discord, I'd love for those to be added too!

Mister Fluffy Dynoteeth said on September 17, 2022 at 12:35 AM
That Discord update is so cool, I didn't even know it was possible to do that with it. I'd love to see more stuff like that implemented, that is, third party integrations, as well as any other cool things you can do with Discord. If it has any more surprises, I'd love to see them added

Ray said on September 17, 2022 at 2:44 AM
AHHHH! Thank you so much, TTR Devs! You guys truly are incredible for everything you do.

Mr. Bread Bear said on September 17, 2022 at 3:16 AM
Hooray for the discord boarding groups!

Wow, toons! Great moves. Keep it up. Proud of you.

Dolphin Playz said on September 17, 2022 at 11:29 AM
Thanks for the new update I’m really enjoying it

Captain Mac Fizzlehopper said on September 17, 2022 at 12:02 PM
I'm checking out the 'dis' batch of 'cord' integrations and I see you ALSO squashed the bug at some point where the integration would break if the game is running side-by-side with itself (e.g. to multitoon). Thank you so much, this is awesome!

Twisted Code said on September 17, 2022 at 12:38 PM
• Addressed a long-standing issue that would let Toons walk around while the C.E.O. is being demoted. Aww, you guys are no fun. I actually quite enjoyed jumping on the flunky that appears just to taunt him! Besides, I've seen most of these cutscenes like 100 times...

Nono said on September 17, 2022 at 12:42 PM
Oh Yeah! Is Very Cool!

Atta Bea Kit. T. said on September 17, 2022 at 1:15 PM
DISCORD INTEGRATION! I'm just going to invite my husband this way because I'm top tier lazy, lol!

Lilith said on September 17, 2022 at 5:03 PM
This is awesome! Thanks for the update :)

Sammy said on September 17, 2022 at 10:31 PM
Endlessly grateful for all that you do for us toons. Thanks for being so awesome and staying on top of updates!

Strawbetty Boop said on September 18, 2022 at 5:22 AM
Love the new jukebox! Hearing the song Slippery Situation flooded me with nostalgia!

Hare Care said on September 18, 2022 at 4:02 PM
HOLY PIES THAT SOUNDS COOL!!

Miss Melody said on September 18, 2022 at 7:31 PM
Make pre-existing cat toons able to transform into black cats for the Halloween update perhaps?

Loks said on September 19, 2022 at 10:09 AM
Thanks for 3.5.0 update.

Weird Curly Megaquack said on September 20, 2022 at 4:46 PM
Some districts are now safe from invasions PERIOD? Oh, man, that's cool. Just a week or two ago, I was in a Sellbot building with someone who had the dreaded "6 Caviar from Hollywoods" task, only for Name Droppers to invade before we reached the last floor. There went their chance. This will be *such* a blessing for Toons who need building-only Cogs!

Raptor from Cranky Hill said on September 21, 2022 at 1:54 AM
Finally! A much-needed net change for newer players! Now if only we could issue laff warnings for neighborhoods too...

Raptor from Cranky Hill said on September 21, 2022 at 1:55 AM
Finally! A safe district update that may make it easier (theoretically) to fill the Silly Meter!
