TNT Community Updates, 7/19
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on July 19, 2018, 10:54 pm NST

Another week, another community Q&A hosted by hardtotame! Hardtotame was on the boards again from 9:30 PM - 10:30 PM NST. (But confusingly, she showed up today, the 19th instead of tomorrow the 20th as originally posted—she may be back tomorrow as well, but that'll be the weekend for her. We'll keep you posted as usual!)

Also in case you missed it, check out our coverage of the next Neopets app! (Just one news post down!)

Here are the highlights:

Key Quest

Dark Lord [Jumpstart CEO] has announced [at Comic Con] that [Key Quest] will be returning as a mobile game.

Regarding the return of Sid:

I don't think he should ever appear in the Battledome as a regular challenger. The way he used to appear is fun, and I have asked the programmers to keep him working the same way when he's back.

Illusen/Jhudora Quests
One user brought up how r99 item collections have devalued in recent years due to Charity Corner events, and suggested freshening up the Illusen/Jhudora quest prizes to entice users to "use" r99s:

Adding new prizes to Jhudora/Illusen quests is a great idea, and I can have the team start work on that really soon.

But in the same post, shot down another idea about trading in r99's for r101 stamps:

Trading r99 items for r101 stamps is more complicated, and we'll have to really think it through before we implement anything of that sort.

I assure you that we will be extremely careful with how we release the rare stamps.

Regarding broken guild logos:

Fixing guild logos is on the list of bugs that we've created for the programmers to wade through when they have some spare time.

Regarding giving the Vandagyre a default avatar:

We most certainly do want to introduce an avatar for Vandagyres.

Regarding adding avatars for other non-stamp things:

We've already started work on adding new avatars to the site, and we're always on the lookout for interesting places to add them. Avatars for games are very much on my priority list, and I've noted both of those games (and the neodeck) down so we can consider adding avatars to them.

Account Security
Regarding increasing security on Neopets accounts:

As for account security, I cannot say what the plans are, but I can let the right people know that this is a concern.

Puzzle Adventure Codes
Regarding the codes from the old games no longer working:

I am not aware of this issue or what's being done about it, so no ETA. If the person in touch with you has told you that it's coming, it should be coming.

Jellyneo Note: The codes from this game were disabled due to someone figuring out how to infinitely generate them. We haven't seen support say that they're coming back, so this is probably just something hardtotame was not aware of.

Paint Brush Options
Regarding new Paint Brush options for Neopets:

Valentine and Shenkuu Paint brushes are both great ideas - I've thought about releasing them as Paint Brushes too - I will ask the art team to keep them in mind for the next time we want to release a new paint brush.

Jellyneo Note: There was some concept art floating around at one point that old TNT did for a "Shenkuu" themed paint brush, but the idea was tossed in favor of releasing Shenkuu themed wearables instead.

Return of Other Site Features
Regarding the Almost Abandoned Attic:

Almost Abandoned Attic - yes, we want to bring it back.

Spring Gift Basket RE - I want to get the Tooth Faerie RE fixed too, so I'll ask the programmer to take a look at this when they're fixing that.

Regarding Premium (and the upcoming still TBD sale):

The team is currently preoccupied with a couple of cool features they're trying to add to Premium accounts before the annual Premium sale. (Also, for those who brought up Premium bugs in the last session - they should be resolved soon after the sale, if not done by then.)

I have paint brush ideas! I would LOVE to see something I gave become a permanent fixture of the site! <3

ducky - JN Staff, 07/20/2018, 12:09 am NST
My highlight (was my question):
"Gift Box Mystery Capsules vs. Mystery Capsules - that's an excellent point, and I will make sure to explain this to the person in charge of the news. "

Several times whoever writes the news has referred GBC as mystery capsule and like it would contain new items. I hope newswriter really gets this.

inkpot, 07/20/2018, 2:18 am NST

and valentine paint brush?!?


dukula, 07/20/2018, 2:32 am NST
Keyquest and new Premium features!! Excite!

biediep, 07/20/2018, 2:39 am NST
I'm hyped for new game avatars as I've been wanting one for Bouncy Supreme and Jubble Bubble for more than a decade. I'm also very happy to hear they have plans to bring the Attic back.

But KQ as a mobile game? Idk how I feel about that... I just don't like playing on such a tiny screen.

lazybutt, 07/20/2018, 3:29 am NST
Your link to your coverage of the next Neopets mobile app just goes to this article, instead of the correct article.

dukula, 07/20/2018, 3:51 am NST
Biediep, Oh yeah, more game avvies would be awesome, I've been wanting a Bouncy Supreme one for a long, long time too!
It should get one because it's such an old game and it would be fun having a jelly type avvie! I hope they make it pretty difficult! Maybe another top 50 avatar, or a 20k point requirement xD

topaz644, 07/20/2018, 5:54 am NST
Will they ever learn? Simply mentioning the possibility of a new item avie (neodeck) will sky rocket prices.

And I can't get excited about new game avies. I'm trying to get the old ones before all the games become obsolete, which is kind of funny as even the avies are flash. lol

dave - JN Staff, 07/20/2018, 8:05 am NST
@lazybutt: Looks like we're beating you when it comes to our linking game!

ducky - JN Staff, 07/20/2018, 9:21 am NST

But cards can be removed and you can just borrow cards - unliek stamps

ummy - JN Staff, 07/20/2018, 9:59 am NST
I imagine they will add new rules to borrowing cards if there's an avatar. Someone will inevitably get their entire neodeck stolen or people would get the avatar borrowing all cards, which defeats the purpose of collecting them.

1jediboy, 07/20/2018, 11:19 am NST
@ummy - But borrowing from others that want to share encourages teamwork and kindness! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘


hamzah_khan, 07/20/2018, 12:05 pm NST
I’m so excited for the neo app, it’s so hard to go on the board on your phone I hope they make an easy way to access the board on a phone

sakeru187, 07/20/2018, 12:42 pm NST
I'M REALLY EXCITED FOR KEYQUEST! But really unsure about it being a mobile app. I liked using a mouse for the mini games Still pretty excited for it though. and Premium features! Woot woot!

What are your favorite Kkeyquest Tokens you own? Mine are my Isca, Dark Nova and Ultra Nova tokens (:

ededdeddy12345226, 07/20/2018, 1:10 pm NST
I see that they didn't say anything about the Trading Post glitch. I appreciate that they refuse to comment on something that destroys the point of using the TP.

mavegibson, 07/20/2018, 1:46 pm NST
I wish they would give us a proper ETA on battledome & NQ avatars. That's what's #1 on my list. All this other stuff doesn't really hold any importance for me.

topaz644, 07/20/2018, 2:32 pm NST
When the trophy was announced for Neodeck prices inflated. Yeah people borrow them but there are a LOT of cards. Not many people have been willing to lend multiple of the high priced ones. Not many people will lend for whatever amount of time it takes to borrow them all.

Maybe the avie will be for 500 cards or something silly though. lol

psychopath, 07/20/2018, 3:27 pm NST
My favorites are my orange and silver Lupes.

That's why I go by Lupe I think. It's been years since I got that nickname.

firenrocks, 07/20/2018, 5:29 pm NST
-Very- excited about Keyquest become a mobile app!
My favorite tokens where my Shadow Shoyru and Royal Scorchio. <3

If we can get a Shenkuu Paint Brush can we get a Neovian one? Would really love that. Virtupets too maybe? (Like spacesuit/alien for all species)

Well, so much for ever being able to get a WoDF, not like I was ever going to be able to afford it anyway.
Was able to get some other of Jhudora's weapons for cheap though.

bagnold, 07/20/2018, 8:43 pm NST
Forget about Keyquest and bring back the World Challenges. People own all these map pieces nd they are basically worthless.

escrainus, 07/20/2018, 9:44 pm NST
Soooo... why bother getting multi-species themed clothing when you can have it locked behind a PB? just like steampunk, yay (?)

yllaille, 07/22/2018, 10:37 am NST
I wish they were bringing Keyquest back for the browser, too...it was one of my favorite features, but I don't have a smart phone, so these apps don't make a jot of difference for me. But I'm sure I'm in the minority with that these days, so I understand why they're opting to go that route.

Would love to have a Shenkuu brush though; one can never have too much Shenkuu. Ditto that for Altador.

And of course, I'm hoping they'll add some new avatars that aren't basically rolexes. The game and puzzle ones are always more fun.

kyrette, 07/22/2018, 2:16 pm NST
*gasps for air* KEYQUEST YESSS.

Oooh Shenkuu brush sounds neat! Valentine will be an interesting color to see in Neopets...they should allow PB color suggestions from the community more often. Like, for example, release Burlap as a color, I thought it was cool. Whomever voted for Origami as color? ;^; I don't like it at all.

Though, I'm still waiting forever for them to allow for more pet slots...*sighs*

dolchay, 07/24/2018, 9:18 pm NST
I think my favorite Kq Tokens are Isca, all my Halloween ones and my Cupid Shoy

I really hope that by it being a mobile app that they will continue with the kq tokens? it would be so nice to see new ones in the mall etc and see them back to at certain times here and there re releasing some like they did before, like the silver and gold ones.

I am at least assuming they will keep the kq token thing going.
