    Default Da Vinci / Thingamabob Change and Auto Farmer Suspension Announcement

    Hello Growtopians!

    It’s been a while since the duplication issue took place and all this time we were trying to clean up and remove all of the duped items. Even though we successfully removed most of them, there are still some Thingamabobs and Da Vinci wings out there that were acquired illegally using the glitch.

    As these two items are especially hard to remove, we came up with the following decisions:
    • All the Thingamabobs and Da Vinci Wings will remain blocked, the icons, descriptions and item IDs will be changed and the textures of Da Vinci wings that are currently equipped will be removed;

    • Blocked means you cannot pick up, trade, drop or use the item in any way. However, you can still unequip the wings;

    • All the Da Vinci Wings and Thingamabobs acquired from now on will be exactly as they were before, the changes will only affect the items acquired from 18.01.2019 till 19.01.2019 (then these items were locked);

    • Players who obtained the items before 17.01.2019 will be compensated automatically with properly-working Da Vinci Wings and Thingamabobs;

    • Players who obtained Thingamabobs via Surgery after 18.01.2019 will also be automatically compensated with properly-working Thingamabobs;

    • In case you did not receive compensation within a few working days, you can contact support with more details on your case;

    • Please note that all false claims will be punished with bans.


    We will apply the above measures for Da Vinci Wings first and proceed with the same procedure for Thingamabobs in one to two weeks maximum.

    This was very much a last-resort approach, but we’ve been seeing diminishing returns from manually removing the duped items and share your frustration in the time it’s taken to get here. After much discussion and review of the available options, this remains the best possible approach given the circumstances and extreme difficulty in manual removal. Thank you for understanding.

    Also, we would like to take this opportunity to inform everyone that starting from April 1st we will be actively banning all accounts that we detect using bots and macros and other means of doing in-game actions automatically. These activities are illegal as per game rules and from the mentioned day and on, ALL accounts involved in those illegal activities will be suspended regardless of how wealthy or high-level they are. You have been warned.

    These accounts affect both the game’s community and its economy in a harmful way, and we hope you understand our desire to tackle them in order to make Growtopia better.

    Feel free to drop by and discuss about these new changes on this thread.

    Default Update: Thingamabob!

    Hello Growtopians!

    After a couple of months waiting, we are now releasing the changes we have made to the Thingamabobs. Even though we successfully removed most of them, there are still some out there that were acquired illegally using the duplication glitch. Note that the Da Vinci Wings will be released a few weeks later. We will keep everyone posted!

    With that, as mentioned above, the existing Thingamabob are already blocked – they will have no name and no function. They should show empty item.

    They will still be in your possession, but can no longer be used. The new version of these items will be given out to the players with the following as the basis:

    • Players who obtained the items before January 17th will be compensated automatically with properly-working Thingamabobs;
    • Players who obtained Thingamabobs via Surgery after January 18th will also be automatically compensated with properly-working Thingamabobs;

    In case you did not receive compensation within a few working days, you can contact Support with more details on your case. However, please note that ALL false claims will be punished with bans.

    Again, we thank everyone for your patience.
