    Yavn Speaks 11/06
    VMK Changes With the Seasons

    You've probably noticed a change or two in VMK, but before I get into that, did everyone have a good Halloween? Free candy and costume fun, how cool is that? What do you think of our Holiday overlay? Yeah, I know it's a little early, but it was either keep the Halloween decorations up a little longer or put up out the Holiday decorations earlier, and we chose to bring on the holiday cheer! But that's not all - we have lots more holiday surprises that will roll out over the next 2 months, so stay tuned.

    Charge!
    So you took a ride on the Space Mountain Ride-A-Thon this weekend, pretty cool huh? We hoped you enjoyed the event, it was free this go 'round, but that will soon change. How you may ask? Well, we'll start charging you a few credits to get in on these events and here's why: As you know we're always listening to our players, many of you told have us that you love making Quests - but having good prizes for those Quest can be a problem. Our solution? Allow room owners to charge entry for an event.

    As a Quest Maker, you'll be able to set Turnstiles to 4 different costs (0 credits, 5 Credits, 50 Credits and 100 Credits). As a Quester, players will be able to see the type of Quest offered as well as the prizes available for that Quest before they enter a turnstile. Quests are not the only uses for the turnstile, I can see rides, cafes and exclusive events all taking advantage of this option. We'll be testing turnstiles and entry fees for rooms over the next few weeks. I'll have more news on that soon...
    Ride On!
    Starting today our 4th track set will be on sale, drum roll please... Space Mountain! As you have already seen we debuted 2 new track pieces - Switches and Doors. We're trying to make the ride experience more interactive - personally, I can't wait to see how everyone uses theses pieces, since VMK players are a very creative bunch. ;-) If you missed the Ride-A-Thon (and your chance to win Up and Down tracks), don't worry the pieces exclusive to the Ride-A-Thon event will be on sale soon.

    Speaking of rides, don't forget about the ride building competition at the end of the month - we'll have all the details for you on the event by next week...

    See you in VMK,
    Yavn

    Ah, fun stuff. At least the turnstiles can't charge as much. Wonder if the credits go to the owner or.. up in the air?

    The turnstile's will also be a way to trade credits for those of us who didn't buy quest machines

    Hopefully, when you go through the turnstile it will say, "Are you sure you want to spend (amount of credits)?" IF they don't we could go through the ride, then notice 10,000 of our credits missing.

    Those turnstiles sound like a great idea.

    Well ... I'm off to go play fireworks to death so I can start racking up those credits.
