I might be able to change their minds. wink



In all seriousness though, I do hope they recycle the event. It can't be that hard, otherwise they wouldn't of recycled the Easter event, would they have?


From what I remember, [ JK ] learned enough about the code to recycle the easter event himself even though he's an artist.

So, in theory, it shouldn't be that hard, we just need someone to do the work.

Exactly. It shouldn't be too much different from the concept for the Easter event....


It was actually modeled on the easter event exactly. xd

It's getting someone to actually update the game with the extra content, I don't know how many hours it would take since I'm not a programmer.

GOGOGOGOGOGO!!!!

Keep talking to them about the powerups making them lots of gc.

They might give in.


Maybe even a trillion and one.

I don't understand how Towns is making money... and apparently enough to invest in development, too.
Here's part of the answer:
codemonkey37179


One of the goals of towns 2.0 is to include sponsorship areas or to have a sponsor rent out a space, such if we have a convention hall or fairgrounds. Once we have a beta version of towns and need some feedback, I think we will be putting it in labs.

So yeah sponsorz.


But the real value of a virtual world, in a srs bzns sense, is how impossibly sticky they are and stuff.

Plus we don't know all their plans yet, they've hinted at much more than T1, and you could say "selling premium House stuff" counts as Town money.

ANYWAY, Gaia isn't quite a vworld and really always wanted to be one.

Tried twice: Town and zOMG!...they both feel more like natural extensions compared to the random asides like other games... neither quite succeeded...integration...bugs ahoy... blablabla...

"We don't plan to create another MMO style game on Gaia. Long term we do want Towns 2 to be an integrated site experience but not quite like an MMO." Narumi Misuhara

Town is much easier to support, or at least will be, and proved more succesful (like still had more active players even when it was glitch and stuff ladden than zOMG! if I recall correctly)

So Town gets another go.

Aye, what concerns me is that it'll be much harder to convince them of further developing/z!2.0 because of the overlap I've mentioned. Best bet would be to z!-fy Town some way... still thinking about it.

Anyway, that's the very short version x P

Ah, that would be AWESOME.

OK, maybe that's not such a good plan.

sadly, i think everyone else is right. gaia doesnt care about us T-T //waits for zomg to be removed completely

They've already said they won't completely remove zomg
Not until the players are so little for a certain amount of
Time.
They said they just will never majorly update it.

Thanks for the info.

I somehow don't see Towns 2 becoming very popular, though. We've had hangouts for sponsors before, even if the execution is different, and none of them "stick".
