The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!


The new Kinzville Map will show up today in your Webkinz World accounts. If it is not there for you on login, clear your cache and it will appear. Here you can see the new map in my account. Five of my pets are walking up and down the streets. I can move the buildings around, and I can make my pet enter the buildings. Each building serves as a "shortcut" to that area of Webkinz World.
 
In your dock is a new area, the Map Stuff, with 26 buildings, trees, and other decorative elements with which you can customise your Map. Do not worry about your Pet Actions, as they are not lost. Outside of the Kinzville Map, the Map Stuff tab reverts to the Pet Actions.
 
There is a new "Build Your Own Kinzville" Challenge on the left, with KinzCash, Wish Tokens and a Founder's Statue as prizes.
 
In the upper left corner of your map is an "Edit Map" button (for placing/moving buildings) which will turn to "Done Editing" when you want to move your pets. There is also a Zoom Out button so that you can see the entire Map area. Explore and have fun!

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

I set mine up. Tons of fun, thanks Webkinz, first cool new addition in awhile.

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

Be sure and click the 'Done Editing' button in the upper left, or all your work won't save!

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

For me, it was a little fun at first but became a real pain. If you haven't done your map my advice is to do your roads first. So, you don't have to delete buildings to make roads that go around buildings if you choose to do so. I used up so much kinz cash buying road pieces. The buildings barely fit on the map. I wanted to only have a few kinzville map signs but it seems that once they are on there you can't delete them. I did enjoy watching five of my random webkinz walking around and I did try to make the roads so that they could walk by every building or walk around every one to walk to another one. It was especially annoying when you wanted to make road tiles that make a four way intersection or made a turn. I wish we could pick which five webkinz we want walking around but every time you go on to the map it's five different ones. Also, if you are doing something like let's say going to the kinz style outlet and then you go back to the map it has to slowly load up each building and item you put onto the map. They just sort of pop up on the map. I guess this is how it was for Ganz when they made the kinzville park.

Anyway, it was something different but I like the old map better. The only reason why I'd use the kinzville map is if the place I want to go to isn't on the things to do menu.

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

Unfortunately, I don't like the new map at all.
It's really hard, frustrating, and difficult to get everything you want on the map.
I want the old map back.

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

Finding if you use the zoom out button next to the edit map it works so much better....the buildings aren't so big anymore!!!

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

I was excited about this update, but I really hate the new map
I'm not sure exactly why... it's just hard to use I guess. I just don't like it

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

Ok, after much editing, my son has his map looking like this. You can zoom out, remove all the buildings and basically make your map the way you want it.

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

So I have to clear my Cache, that's why there was no new map

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

I don't like it very much so far, but I guess I'll get used to it.

Also, it looks like all those Spree road pieces were in preparation for this? I sold all of them after using just a few in my rooms, they were taking up too much dock space. So now my map won't have much road for a while.

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

I don't revert back to Actions when I on on the front page out of the map.......

Th Spree road pieces won't work. If you want roads (and you actually don't "need" them to place buildings), you can purchase them in the "map" section of the WShop.

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

This is horrible. It's really hard to get the building out of the dock and onto the map where you want. Plus the roads go on wierd, do they turn when you log on again? I liked it better the old way I think

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

belch, I don't like it. Love the old map so much better.

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

Considering we (my hubby, 2 girls and I) just started WKF, I can see the connection they are making here with the new map. I think there are benefits to it, I plan to mimic the original map and tweak it, considering the old map functioned ok for us, but I prefer the idea of putting the building we (My family) likes to use the most central and make a 'ghost' town area for the less needed buildings. I applaud their effort to make things new and interesting, I'm sure they will add all kinds of decorations and fun things eventually, imagine the possibilities for Winter, they might add an ice rink and other cool stuff for our kinz, this answered the request many people voiced when the 'old' map was 'new. Good luck to all of you and I look forward to seeing all of your maps. <3

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

Well my page froze and now I can do anything when I logged back in. I have no edit button and I can place anything on the map. I can move the map. This is awful, i want the old map back!!!

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

Re: The New Kinzville Map is now in Webkinz World!

I wish we had the option of new map or old map...
