The Toon Council is super-excited to announce the release of Toon Parties - where players can have parties filled with crazy activities and wacky decorations with up to 20 Toons!

Here's what's new:

Toon Parties - Have a party with your Toon friends, or make new friends in a public party! Try your best Toon-moves on the Dance Floor, have a blasting good time with party Cannons, or see how high you can jump on a Trampoline! Even earn JellyBeans while having a great time with your friends. At this time, only Members can host a Toon Party, but all Toons -- Members and Free players -- can attend a party. The initial cost to create a party is 100 JellyBeans. There are many activities and decorations available to rent, so you can plan the perfect Toon Party.

Party Gates - Visit any neighborhood Party Gate, and walk right up to the stairs to see what public parties are happening, or talk to a Party Planner to create your own party.

Toontown Time - Toontown now has an in-game clock set to Pacific Time. Clocks are located at each Party Gate, and in your Shticker Book. Now you can easily coordinate your parties and other fun activities with your friends!

New Shticker Book Events Page - The Shticker Book has a new Events page, noted with a party hat icon, which is where all of your party information is located. Keep up-to-date on all of the fun with your Toon Calendar, and all of your parties with the Hosting and Invitations tabs. The Events page has three sections.

Party Invitations - Party invitations are received through your Estate mailbox. When you receive an invitation you have three options: You can accept the invitation, decline the invitation, or choose to respond later by simply closing the invitation and leaving it in your mailbox. The host will be notified of your response once you have made your choice to either accept or decline the invitation.

Boarding Groups Released

The Toon Council is pleased to announce our latest addition to Toontown -- Boarding Groups! Players can use this feature to group with other Toons for boarding Cog HQ elevators/karts and Boss Battle elevators. A minimum of two Toons are required to form a Boarding Group, and players can create a group of up to either four or eight Toons to enter a Cog HQ elevator together.

While in a Cog HQ Lobby, create a Boarding Group by selecting a Toon and clicking the Invite button at the bottom of their detail panel. The first player to send an invitation that is accepted is designated as that group's leader. Any group member can invite others, however only the leader can remove Toons from the group. Any Toons removed by the leader can only rejoin the same boarding group if the group leader invites this Toon back.

Once the group is created, the Boarding Group panel will become available on the left side of the screen, which displays each Toons' status. When the group is ready, only the leader can launch the Boarding Group by pressing the "GO" button at the bottom of the Boarding Group panel, and all Toons in the group will board together. Similarly a Boarding Group leader can walk into an elevator and all members will automatically board at the same time, provided the elevator has enough empty slots for the entire boarding group. Upon their arrival in the Cog HQ, the Boarding Group panel will disappear as the group has entered the HQ.

Please note: When you are part of a Boarding Group, you can not use the "Go To" button to teleport to another Toon. You also cannot leave the boarding area via Teleport or walking through doors, and cannot board an elevator yourself, so long as you remain a member of a Boarding Group. If you need to leave the boarding area, simply click on the "Leave" button on the Boarding Group panel first.

Currently, the following Cog HQ Elevators offer Boarding Groups:

Toons now have a way to turn Type Chat sounds on/off via a new option in the Shticker Book's "Options" tab. Type Chat speech sounds are defaulted to "on", so when you type chat now you will hear your own Toon and other Toons' meows and growls! If you switch Type Chat sounds to "off", you will no longer hear your own Toon nor other Toons.

SpeedChat phrases will continue to have sounds and is unaffected by this new feature.
