Close as you can get to the real thing
« on: June 11, 2008, 11:48 PM »

In case anyone has missed this this is by far the best work I have seen recreating VMK. Some of you may know GPDot From VMK He has done such an awesome job with this.  He has added All guest rooms and even lost areas of VMK (if you find the old Pirates lobby let me know) He has animated the sword and the treasure chests and Monorail. He also has all the Holiday skins. This is great!

Thanks Adventure! 

I must of spent a good hour overnight just wandering around, both lost in memories and simply amazed at the beautiful work GPDot had done!  His personal additions are great too!

His "glove" and devotion to the game are so beautifully manifested in his work.  I do so hope, if Disney ever gets wind of it, that they have the decency to allow it to remain public.

I had honestly had no idea how much I missed the game (what with VFK and SW being on so quickly following its closure) until I saw this.

Sincere thanks to GPDot for publicizing his work! :thumbs:

I did find the old pirates lobby after about an hour looking in the obvious places ;)  The hint is you can not click on the map or any exit to get there.

I have to admit is does remind me there is no replacement for the game no matter what, the richness it provided us was unique and irreplaceable.  In part this was the Disney touch, the content and the people, our friends and staff from the game.  While in many cases we are still in touch with the people and have our pictures and memories,  It was the three combined that made it a magical place. It's a little like Frosty with no hat,  no magic - no Frosty.  The magic is missing if we all cant return together but it is wonderfull GPDot put all this time into it that we can share in revisiting VMK - as has been pointed out many of my friends have needed tissues to make this visit.

For all the hard work a special thanks to GPDot.  :yourock:

Thank you for sharing Adventure, I tried but had to give up trying to load every room I could think of for pics on the last few days (boy was that lag horrific) but the lag did give me a great opportunity to capture and animate some of the magics :)





Im lame I know LOL :lolg: but it was a cooler way to remember them than just go pop bye bye magic nver see you again. Luckily I managed to get a few other friends doing their Inferno's to animate, guess it sort of eases the blow of VMK being gone

So thanks for helping share GPDot's work, now I can pretend Im doing my magic in the rooms as I wander around an empty VMK..... Does it remind anyone of a new Beta game? wandering around lonely that is hehe

Wow, what a truly fantastic job you did putting that all together GPDot.  It feels so real.  You did a great job down to the little details. 
Boo, your magic videos are also great.  I wish I knew how to do that and was able to capture mine.  It made me smile to see them in action again. 
Thank you both for your time and sharing.

Oh my Gosh!  I just balled my eyes out going thru VMK again.  I miss it so much.  :cry:

And it's absolutely amazing what you have done GPDOT.  I love it and can't wait to see what you will do for the magic. :)
