SW - new build 1.1, new blog 12/16

New Blog, new updates. There are more updates that are included in the game including a map view of smallworlds, in game alerts, and featured loyalty missions where you get tokens for finishing a featured mission 4 days in a row. Seems like there are plenty of changes. I noticed the helpers and moderators also have changes. The helpers have a first aid cross above their head and the mods have a M above their heads. The Christmas decorations look neat, and this time you can buy the lights.

Heres the blog and a link to the actual entry
http://blog.smallworlds.com/2008/12/...t-smallworlds/



SmallWorlds Blog

It’s Christmas at SmallWorlds!

December 15th, 2008 - Hilary Jackson
We’ve kept you all waiting… and we’re sorry its all a little later than we had planned. Suffice to say that it has been an extra busy time for us here at SW HQ with the 1.0 Release and all that this has entailed for us - phew!
Next year we promise we’ll be more organised, and we’ll have those Christmas decorations out to you in October, just like in the shops

So, come now and join with your SmallWorlds friends for some yummy Christmas feasting, and spend time together around the yuletide tree!



Wrapped Gifts!

We’ve introducing the ability to send wrapped gifts to your friends - and you can even choose the date upon which the gift can be opened. When the recipient clicks the wrapped gift, it will simply say who it is from, and when they can open it! Any item from your inventory can be gifted (you will be asked at time of gifting if you would like it to be wrapped). This will be a standard SmallWorlds feature from now on, but we felt that Christmas was the perfect time to introduce it!

Wouldn’t life be worth the living, wouldn’t dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit, All the whole year through?

Its snowing in Woodlands Park… time for a snowball fight!

Snowball fight anyone? Check out the Snowball Shooter - available now in the “Happy Xmas” store! Grab one and give your friends a truly cool surprise! Pictured below are a few SW players we found having fun in gorgeous snow-covered Woodlands Park. A great place to run around in a Snow Fox suit!


Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. ~Bobby (7 yrs old)

In-World Christmas Items

Christmas items are all available at the “Happy Xmas” store, which you will find featured on the front page and in the featured spaces panel. Come visit and indulge all your virtual Xmas shopping desires…
  • Christmas Trees (standard and Deluxe version)
  • Mistletoe - for those romantic Christmas moments
  • Hand held fireworks - available for use anywhere!
  • Super Snowball - fires 8 snowballs in quick succession
  • Hannukah candles
  • Elf standard helmet
  • Xmas wall hanging lights (VIP version animated)
Christmas Food Items


We’ve got delicious Christmas fare available for you and your friends - Christmas cookies, Turkey with all the trimmings in tray, Plum pudding with Holly on top, Large Ham with pineapples, Roast dinner, Eggnog and Christmas cookies.


Standard Items ‘Christmas Transformations’


There will be a general Winterising and ‘Christmassing’ of many standard items over the festive season:
  • All trees will be winterised and covered in snow
  • Stockings will appear on all fireplaces
  • All doors will be decorated with Holly wreath on doors
  • Snow will appear on outdoor wall texture tops and corners These will return to normal just before new years eve.
Wishing you all the very best of the Christmas Season


From all of us here at SmallWorlds, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you, your family and all of your loved ones a very happy Christmas.
Here in NZ there’s no snow at Christmas-time, so we’ll all be getting down to the beach on Christmas Day for a yuletide BBQ! (but we dream of white Christmas’s all the same).


May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

Man, every time I come across a VMK picture lately, I feel my heart ripped a little more. The pain doesn't get any easier.

Great message there, A!

Maybe some are like me, and are especially missing our VMK friends and the special Holiday times on there. Oh how I liked to walk down Main Street during the Christmas decoration time with friends. I've been visiting all the various games; however, none of them work quite right (not that vmk didn't have plenty of lag issues), and I don't seem to connect very often with friends (okay, so I have a weird schedule, lol). Though on SW at least there are missions that don't require arcade games. I feel so sorry for that poor Troll on ElfIsland that is trying to carry my stuff for me to build a home, I keep steering him wrong.
