|― Transformice’s in-game description of Vanilla|
Vanilla is a game mode added in V0.117, 6 November 2010. Vanilla rooms only consist of official vanilla maps originally created exclusively by the administrators, but in 2016, a map making contest was hosted which added the winning maps to Vanilla. Vanilla maps play both in vanilla rooms and normal rooms.
In vanilla rooms, you can only play the official maps. As of V0.147, user-created maps were removed from vanilla.
Vanilla rooms are defined the same way as bootcamp rooms. As long as "vanilla' is in the title of the room it will behave as a vanilla room. It is possible to put any character in the /room name, as long as vanilla is part of the text string, for it to be a vanilla room. (/room bobby vanilla)
Pressing the "Vanilla" option in the menu takes you to room vanilla1 or vanilla2, in a similar fashion like logging in. If too many players are in vanilla1 or 2, new rooms with name vanilla3 and following names (vanillaX) will be created and mice put into these. The purpose for Vanilla is to get new players on an easy start.
