TriadCity Message of the Day
The ace SmartMonsters development team - that'll be Mark, who isn't feeling too ace after the experience -
is in the process of integrating TriadCity into
as a fully Facebook-enabled experience.
If you're not a Facebook user, the impact on you will be exactly zip.
Except, we hope, for an influx of additional players as TC is exposed to Facebook's enormo population.
If you are a Facebook user, there'll be an increasing number of benefits as time and development
march ever onward. Time, anyway.
Right now, you can write arbitrary messages from your TriadCity characters to
your Facebook Wall, using the new
command. Additionally, a handful of significant game events will be automatically written to
Facebook for you, including
and - we hope this doesn't happen - the
of your character.
You can control whether these events are posted or not via a new "Facebook" menu which
appears on the Game window in the TC player applet.
In the future, you'll be able to share boosts, spiffs and special items with Facebook friends;
enlist them in Facebook-centric leagues, unions, corporations and other groupings; and receive other
benefits from Facebook-ish social role playing.
To get started, visit the
TriadCity Profile page
on Facebook. Click the "Go To Application" button on the left, below the TriadCity
icon. Link your Facebook and SmartMonsters accounts - exactly the same as logging in to the SmartMonsters
website - and off you go.
If you would, please do us the great favor of becoming a Facebook Fan of TriadCity.
Look for the Fan button on the
TriadCity Profile page.
We appreciate it very much. We'll also be exceptionally
grateful if you'll write a positive review of TriadCity on Facebook. Thanks indeed for helping
to get the word out!
While we were at it we integrated several TC-isms as Facebook applications, including
Thanks for befriending them as well.
We may also integrate TriadCity into MySpace. Maybe. Eventually. After we've rested up from
the effort required by Facebook. Around 2013. Maybe.
Please share your suggestions for ways in which TriadCity and Facebook can be interestingly melded.
Thanks so much!
We hope this turns out to be interesting for everyone!
