FAQ Title

 Current Features:
  1. The maps are active

  2. Floor navigation is active

  3. Many rooms have animation

  4. All of the guest rooms are available in the Guest Rooms/Own Rooms area

  5. Water Park Pool is available from Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach

  6. Club33 is available from New Orleans Square

  7. Monorails are up and running, you can go inside, but they don't take you to different lands - yet

  8. Alice and Peter Pan Dark Rides are up and running, click the turnstiles to enter them

  9. NPC's are clickable - I could use additional screen shots of sayings from them if you happen to have them - thank you

  10. The Treasure Room treasure chests do work; there is a 40% chance of winning.

  11. Christmas and Halloween skins are available on Main Street; you will need to re-enter the room to see them. If either is turned on you can also go to the Haunted Mansion Lobby to see the Mansion decked out

  12. The games that were available for prizes available to play (i.e. Monsters Door Maze, Airlock Escape, Hyperspace Mountain, Blast in Space etc.). They can be found in the Main Street Peny Arcade and the Tomorrowland Hub.
 Future Plans:
  1. My intention is to animate every room. With that in mind, there are currently over 130 rooms and each room takes a fair piece of time to animate. I have found that most people want their favorite game areas and castle forecourt working, so I will begin to concentrate on those areas

    (Please don't mail me the title of your particular favorite ;) thank you)

  2. I have captured inventory, animation, magic and more. I want them all in the kingdom at some point

  3. I am planning on building versions of Fireworks, Jungle Cruise, and Music Mixer. I will attempt Pirates and Ghosts, but they will be largely AI based, and I don't plan on making them easy to "skill" or catch. It will also be more complex and take me longer to figure out

  4. One thought was to have about 5-6 characters milling about, and then you could click on one of them...

    Whichever character you clicked on would be the active character for tasks like walking, sitting, talking, dressing, and magic etc. The others would continue to mill about and have specific areas set per room (there could even be random chatter). You could click on any of the characters to make them active and "play" with that one for a while. That is why this process will take time, but it is my new "hobby" since VMK closed

    To go beyond, there would have to be a login and database back end to store the information. Otherwise you would have to dress etc. each character each time

  • Added a page to the site titled

  • Oh and I added a new Logo too; probably more changes to the site's look and feel as I make it as spiffy as I want it to be.

  • I added multiple messages throughout the kingdom. most refer to special features, history, or standard feedback

  • Ok, I spent a lot of time answering email and forum questions today. I am spending a great deal of time answering the same questions that are already answered in the FAQ and Forums area. So, instead of going forward with a cool new feature, I started working on the message system to deliver messages inside the kingdom. Have fun, and I hope I can can get back to fun features soon.

  • Animation was added to the Main Street Music Game Lobby. Tile and marquee animation coming.

  • Animation was added to the Tomorrowland Inner-Space Ray Room

  • Well, I have added one more game to the Main Street Penny Arcade. It is activated by the castle arcade machines.

  • I have been working on the Jungle Cruise game, but am not far enough along to even show it yet. Give me time

  • I have added the sound effects to the Main Street room

  • I added the Conquer the Sea game to the Discovery Island room - This game has some code inside that redirects the program to a file I don't have. It doesn't work that way when on a local machine, but as soon as it is in a web page it functions that way. I may rebuild it later, but this is toward the bottom, if not the bottom, of my list.

  • I added the Rotator Gator game to the Penny arcade. It is connected to two of the arcade cabinets that reminded me most of Marti Gras ( they are the same kind of cabinet, there are just two of them).

  • I added the Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest game to the Penny Arcade. This, again, is attached to the cabinets that look most like they would have a pirate game.

  • Added a game to a room that hasn't been in VMK for some time. This game allowed you to pick up a nice room and some swashbuckling good prizes - hint hint.

  • Altered the sound track in New Orleans Square - Thanks for the heads up

  • Removed arcade cabinet in Blue Bayou by request. Looks like we will only have the cabinets in the Main Street Penny Arcade, and they will run games. More on that later.

  • from yesterday, if you didn't get the hint, go to Club33 in New Orleans Square (under the Club33 sign) and enter; these items can be moved and rotated. No they don't understand layers or occupied spaces yet, but Rome was not built in a day. ;)

  • All NPC's have been updated with new code to allow multiple responses. Multiple responses have been added for those I have. Thanks to those of you who sent additional sayings.

  • I have added 2 inventory items in a room. These items are moveable and can be rotated. I have not added my code to change the depths/layers, but I have made this code in the past. I will add it later - it is not at the top of my list.
    • Club33 Chair
    • Club33 Table

  • Added tables and the arcade table to New Orleans Square Blue Bayou

  • Added Animation to New Orleans Square Blue Bayou (water and boat)

  • Worked more on the character movement, but nothing to show.

  • Again, this is the BEGINNING PHASE. I have changed the title of the character to a more "generic" name.

    There is now gliding movement from point to point. I need to:
    • Make a routine to navigate around things they shouldn't walk on and to use the shortest path
    • Cut out the walk sequence for 8 directions (and the animation steps for walking) and put them in.
    • Have them recognize the end points as Normal, Exit, Sit, Que, and Teleport.
  • OK... I am in the BEGINNING PHASE of putting characters in. Yes there will be a girl, yes they will be able to move eventually, dance, magic, etc. but for now I am going through the beginning steps, so please be patient. There is one character, guess who, in the Castle Forecourt. For the time being you can roll over him and get the name and click on it to rotate it. This is a test for me, so please be patient.

    I cleaned a Ride-a-thon from recent past, and set it up as a Host event from the menu. I don't have any music in it yet, and may need a few reminders as to what music was in each room. The rooms last 12 seconds and then proceed. This is just like any other ride, you can't get on in the middle, but you won't be DC either ;)
