Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!


 
Here at Webkinz Insider, we're well aware that some of our members aren't terribly fond of the new Kinzville Map that was introduced back in October. While some love the ability to customize their new maps, others have complained about performance or that they'd rather spend time decorating their Webkinz rooms than the new map.

For those of you who don't care for the Kinzville map, or the items in it, such as the park benches, street lamps, or any prizes you may have received from challenges, there is a silver lining. Thanks to a thread from lollipoplover in our forum, we've found that the map items are actually quite valuable when sold at the W Shop!  
 
In fact, as you can see above, merely selling the free items given to you when the new Kinzville Map was introduced, you can earn 811 Kinz Cash right off the bat! Selling off the items you receive from challenges can earn you even more, so if you don't like using the new map, look on the bright side and earn some free KC!

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Sorry I'm a little confused. How does this help people who don't like the new map? I see that you can sell decorations for the map, which I actually already figured out. But, you still have to go to the map to get to some of the places you want to go. I only add buildings to the map that aren't in the things to do menu. Sorry if I missed something.

Wow! Thanks for the info Justin!

The post was for those who didn't know you could sell them for a good amount of Kinz Cash. Like the title of the article says, at least for those who don't like the map, there's a silver lining.

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

This is great news! Thanks, Justin! I would rather have the KC than the little decorations. I still don't like the "new" Kinzville Map, but this is definitely a little Silver Lining to the problem!

On my way to sell some unwanted items!
Now,if they would only get rid of the new map!

Justin ... this is great! .. now most people maybe don't care for the map because it slows down their computers, (me included LOL) but your "silver lining" can also help with THAT!
.. removing the road pieces for sale will cause the ever roaming pets to disappear .. with that animation off the map, it is so much faster! .. so yay! ... more KinzCash for me AND a faster loading map!


Ty, Justin ♥

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

That's Justin. I didn't know you can sell the map things back. After reading the post I sold everything back to the w-shop.

It would be nice if Ganz gave you a choice of maps. Where if people wanted to old they can have it. And if people wanted the new map they can have it. This way it would make everyone happy.

OK Justin. Sorry if I sounded snippy. It wasn't towards you. Thanks for the info.

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Great news, thanks so much.I do not like the map at all.but I do enjoy making KC

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Thank you very much for the info, Justin! I didn't know that. I will leave my map as is though.

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Thanks for this Justin C: Atleast I'll be able to earn some KinzCash from this map

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Thanks Justin! Good info for those who have spare accts and dont need to set up the map or those (like me) who have their full of "the map" when using WF so WW map is annoying lol

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Thanks for the update. I did not know one can sell those items.

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

thanks justin however i like designing my map and will keep it as it is right now i just wish the map loaded faster though.....

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Thanks Justin. I really like the new map and all the stuff that you can decorate it with. I love WW!

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Time to sell the road pieces!

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

Thank you for posting a silver lining to the map Justin.


And I'm still holding hope that they will give us the option to return to the old map someday - for those of us who still don't like the new map and/or it slowing everything down.

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

I'm with you, Dakota, in wishing that we could have the option to go back to the old maps.

Thanks to Justin for the starting this discussion... and to Butterflies for the suggestion to remove the road pieces to speed things up a bit. I'm going to do that ASP.

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

That is exactly what i did xD, it helped me buy a bed for my cat (Now she has a bed and grey walls and flooring )

This was very useful

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

I only got free trees and buildings. Why did that happen? I want more !!!!!

Re: Not a Big Fan of the Kinzville Map? There's a Silver Lining!

If I could sell the whole dang map and the one that preceded it would be my ideal choice, both are very slow loading and cumbersome.My computer is not brand new and is challenged enough by programs, in today's economy a new one is very far down the road.It's at thepoint I rarely visit WW, I visit WI more,and Mine-Craft most.

I think this is Ganz's way to drive away more and more customers, with more and more things being deluxe only it's turning into a pay website.I guess the price of pixels has skyrocketed.

2 years ago I would have been saddened if Webkinz closed, not anymore,Bob.
