  • I finally have beaten Fallout 3 after 8 years and countless restarts! It feels so surreal.
    Well, I just dodged one of the biggest bullets of my life today. Yesterday, I discovered that a large sum of money may or may not have been stolen (or someone misplaced it), the CEO was notified, and at least 4 people were fired over it. I was on the tertiary of the event so I was really scared I was going to be fired too, but thankfully that didn't happen.

    Just as long as you got the secret briefcase out of the building and to the required spot. Glad you avoided being fired. :LZSexcite:

    you might get a promotion or bonus for finding it instead getting fired... but i advice you to put extra caution when you're going home... some people that got fired might not like what you're doing and could potentially do you harm... i hope it doesn't happen btw... but it's better to be cautious... wish you well :D.
    Thanks to running out of meaningful things to do at work, I wrote 6 single spaced pages of story for Battle Castle. Talk about progress!
    After tons of brainstorming recently, any updates for my Battle Castle project are going to be very delayed. Thankfully, a demo for one of my other projects is getting closer to being done!

    I'm going to post all of the upcoming changes in the Battle Castle topic within the next few days, as it's a very extensive list of changes.

    I'll have to check it out. Overall it's a really cool concept you have there based on what I saw when Studio Blue reviewed it.
    So far, this has been one of the worst weeks of my life. My anxiety spiked really bad because of the election and I haven't had a good night's sleep for a week straight. I'm also extremely sensitive to bad sleep.

    I woke up around 4am this morning thinking I heard an overhead page for a trauma alert so you can tell how my week has been.... I don't worry about politics. If we focused on voting out the incumbents in the house and senate then who we get as president doesn't truly matter......

    Yeah, the rhetoric of congresswomen calling for truth and reconcilliation councils to list and likely criminalize their political opposition when they win are making me increasingly nervous. Weird, crazy crap. Doesn't look like any of the nonsense is going to end anytime soon. I'm just going to stay in my little slice of nowhere while the chaos reigns.

    The one positive thing coming out of this election, for me, is that I'm learning where all the US states actually sit on the map!
    Who knew Washington is not in Washington? That's just crazy! I mean, New York, NY, right?
    (I did actually know Washington is not in Washington)
    Does anyone else ever feel overwhelmed with the amount of work they have to do? I have a million things I need to rework for my main project Battle Castle (writing, characters, combat, etc), but then I remember I need to look at and possibly re-write my other two projects, one of which already has multiple hours of gameplay, and it's just too much sometimes.

    All the time! I relate to the feelings of being overwhelmed.
    Make the project into a playable model and make adjustments afterward. There is always ways to make your game better, make a note and work that out later.

    You are doing awesome things, it is normal to feel that way. I would love to see your stuff thus far, and how you progress!

    Imagine being in charge of building the great wall of China.
    It was built to keep the rabbits out, didn't you know?
    At any time, a swarm of rabbits could have appeared.
    hehehe, now that's terrifying.
    Fluffy things eating everything in your village. Breeding ferociously in front of your homestead. Pooing in the streets.

    There's always times where it looks overwhelming. But no individual task is that bad so I try to focus on that. Although my ADHD tendencies have me bouncing around a bit between tasks at times....
    Lots of cool changes for Battle Castle in the works! Not just reworked dialogue, but gameplay, combat, and possibly lore changes to make things weightier.
    Getting feedback on your games can be painful, but it is TOTALLY WORTH IT. People will catch things you missed, or have totally different viewpoints that you never would have thought of, or was too blinded to see.

    I'd much rather hear constructive criticisms than simply "good" or "bad". This is why I always tell people to be as honest as possible despite of the fact that it still hurts sometimes when people criticize your work.

    @cthulhusquid, sorry for the misunderstanding. I am in the process of playtesting Trailblazer if I finish that game. I will have to play another game. Ok, after that, I will review your game if you wish.
    Here's a nice little poem I wrote to include in one of my game projects:

    From the fallen husk to the merry froth,
    From the golden stalks to the oaken mug,
    Does ale warm the heart like a woolen cloth,
    And welcomes the long night in with a hug.
    Note to self: Don't use a square building to make a hotel, nothing will ever be an even number, and it will look janky as hell.

    Yeah, I always drew buildings as giant rectangles, and my art never came out looking that great. That's why architects deserve the big bucks. They make beautiful, unintuitive buildings that most of us (especially me! :3 ) would never ever think to design. And hopefully they do it in a way that the building can still serve its intended function really well.

    I'm re-doing a whole exterior map to make the interior map look good, it's crazy how things are so interconnected when you
    are concerned with immersion. Coincidentally, the exterior is looking way better even though just have the main features made.
    Yet again, I feel like I'm one of the few who likes a thing a lot of other people don't like. I guess I'm just weird like that... Or my expectations are zero.
    Going from Ace to MZ... Wow. There's a lot to unpack here!

    @cthulhusquid Don't you dare. Stay with Ace. Think of everything that it has done for you all these years!:kaocry: Seriously though, if you're jumping from Ace to MZ there's a ton of new tricks the editor can do now. I've messed around with it all day.

    @taarna23 Don't you encourage bad behavior! :kaolivid::kaoswt:

    @Xane I've going to use both. I have three games to complete in Ace, and I'm not going to give up on them now! I'm just going to use MZ for my new ideas, of which there's already two.
    There was a large beetle flying around in my brother's room just now. When it got caught, there were tiny bugs crawling all over it, like parasites or mites or something. Maybe it was one of those zombie bugs and it was being mind controlled...
    I got a new rpg idea yesterday, titled "The Hero We Summoned to Save Us is a War Criminal from our Past?!"
    My brain: Hey, I have an idea how to make the transition to the main story quest in The Wastes more natural!
    Me: Good!
    My brain: You need to remake the hotel you start out in, it's not realistic enough.
    Me: Ok... This was unexpected, but I can do it.
    My brain: Now make each hotel floor 5 times as large to match the main part. Oh, you also need to make a bunch of new npcs to fill in the space on these maps.
    Me: Crap.

    The horrors of gold and drop balancing are not to be trifled with lightly...

    Could do gold per damage dealt, and special situations yield items, that way there's no percentage to balance.

    Each human enemy can drop between 1 and 10 items, it's supposed to be what they are carrying throughout the Wasteland. A mixure of food, drinks, weapons, ammo, scrap items, drugs, etc.

    I make it so that enemies, except in some cases, never drop money. Instead, it's obtained from spots that spawn on some maps and after completing quests and events.

Making good progress with the second chapter. :)

Still work in progress.

(Real life, it is chronically the fourth chapter that I am making.)

They spent their whole life to build that wall and the empire, an empire that enslaves them." :kaoswt2: I'm just going to turn it into a modern-day sad tale.

No edits, just gameplay from one area to the next. Plus all my new shiny interface stuff... And I even remember to bolt down the portal so it won't escape this time. :kaopride:
You guys just freely offer up your Autonomy?
I don't know about you, but today the covid frustration is seriously getting to me. Haven't really seen many of my friends for two years, since i moved towns the year before this all started, and well, i miss them :(
so, here's a cute alpacaraptor sketch to heighten the mood:
