After crashing, logged back in to find a new loading screen.

I like it - Much better than the map.

So many big quests, new items and furniture, new loading screen. So many new additions to VMK, one would've thought it was just born or something. And with less than a month to enjoy it. What a pity :(
At least they are making the last of this fun, this is always better then a boring ending. Every beginning and ending should be fantastic and something to be remembered :goodvibes:

I don't think this is a slap in the face. I think this is VMK's way of showing us what magic is left to come before that scary doom's day, if that does occur. Also, guys remember they have been releasing a lot of new items and quests, but don't forget to keep our main goal of fighting to keep our beloved game alive! SAVE VMK! :grouphug:

I think it is a fighting call. You see things have slowed down very little talk of what we are doing. No pushing each other to try more. This is the long road we need to keep up the pressure.

Today I mailed my flats and will be sending out more letters. Come on people make some noise.

We need to keep it up.

So yes the grave sign brought tears to my eyes. But it also said we need to work harder.

Oh it is asking for way more than that!
1st Mistake: ToonTown. I think Esmeralda said something about ToonTown too. Too much ToonTown, I'd like to throw concrete pies at them =/
2nd Mistake: Pirates. VMK has great pirates already..and much more than whatever they do in that game.
3rd Mistake: The most hated of mine, thanking us for playing. I won't say any more!

I bet it's all Haley's idea. =[

For those of you who know the inventory way better than I -- Which of the items pictured in the first screen shot above have never been released?

I don't see that anyone answered your question completely. If I missed it, my apologies.

Never released items from this picture:

http://www2.virtualmagickingdom.com/homepage/download/image_85_0.jpg


Thing in very very top left - no clue what it is.
pumpkin coach (LOVE that!)
Tron tank (it seems to be purple, never out in that color)
Clam shell seat
Club33 chair (never available to players)
Yellow (radiation? lol) bucket
Club33 Table (never to players)
Poster next to Club33 table?
Stop-light thingy (yep, technical word)
Blue double ride car seat
Royal standing ride car

Notes:
* Dreams fireplace was never for sale, but given as prize with Dreams Suite. Categorize that as released or not, as you wish.


They sure had a lot of cool stuff in the planning for us to play with.

I love the new loading screens... They really are cool!! I first noticed it afternoon..and said to myself...Wow..I never saw this and this before! Love the Pumpkin...that is very Disney!!

I know its so sad... I love VMK..its the only game I play...Oh PLease Disney
please reconsider!! But I do agree..at least its not boring ..they are at least gving us some cool things... :( :(

Out of that list, the stop light, the block in the upper left hand corner and the bucket in the far right of the 2nd row were items shown in the Trading Card Game, as better seen in/inspired by Test Track at Epcot.

I'm hoping they release the TT stuff soon; Test Track is one of my all time favorite Disney rides.

Well, I think the writing is on the wall now. I will continue to write my letters, but I think our focus should turn to DEMANDING that Disney create another game in the spirit of VMK. Maybe all of our protests can show the powers that be that there is a market for a VMK type game out there.

I will not be joining Fairies, Cars, Pirates, Toon Town, or Club Penguin. If they can't see the beauty that was in VMK, then I am done with Disney online games.

That thing, the race light, and the bucket are Test Track Items. I am going to guess that on the left it is a "Crash Test Dummy Barrier". Does that mean at one time we may have been given "Crash Test Dummy Clothing? :rotfl2: Oh, since I am on that topic, how about a loading window of all the clothes released and not released? Would love to see that.

This picture makes me so sad. They say goodbye to vmk, to the very place we all started out in the game as guests, and the put next to it pictures of Toon Town and POTC online?!

The sorrow kicks in at just one stare.

You know, that's exactly why I'm writing letters. If there was another game like it, I'd be ok with VMK closing. They don't realize that the new games (the ones that have been announced) are nothing like what we're used to, and why we like VMK. They are going to lose a lot users because of this- and a lot of credibility because of the way it was handled.

I honestly feel bad for the people still working with VMK. They may have heard about the decision a few days (hours?) before we did, but I'm sure it was just as shocking to them. As much as the "promotion" talk hurts us, I can't imagine how it must feel to have something you've worked on for the past 3+ years ripped apart and downgraded by your own company. If there is a next thing, and if part of the VMK team is working on it, I might get excited. I wish they would just let us know though.

On topic: that card screen is so purdy. almost desktop-background worthy if it wasn't so busy!

The graphic of the cards didn't stretch well when I tried to use it as the desktop wallpaper on my 1280x1024 screen. So I reworked it a little bit. It still looks like it's been sized up a lot but it's better. If you want it for your computer you can download it below:

I do not believe for a moment that they are meant as a slap in the face for players, but as a tribute to something these designers and programmers put their hearts and souls into. We are not the only ones with a lot invested in VMK.

I am reminding them all the time. :teeth: We have a $10K+ vacation for 4 to WDW booked next year. If they take away my items I paid money for just 4 months ago and do not refund my money, I am cancelling the trip. Yes, I am dead serious, too. ;)
