  • I just got all of my wisdom teeth out today, thankfully I have the rest of the week off.

    not sure -4 Wisdom is a viable stat change, as times go.

    @gstv87 You've got it wrong. They're called wisdom teeth, because when you pull them out, you'll unlock the power they had been sealing.
    After months and many changes, my revamped demo for Battle Castle is finally out Check it out in the Games in Development forum!
    I've decided that I'm going to release an "early look" demo for Battle Castle that'll show off the new direction the game is going in. Now, I don't have a release date yet, but it'll be soon, I promise.
    It'll have a lot less content than the current demo that's out right now, but will include totally new maps, a new combat system/new skills, new writing, new windowskin, and a bunch of tweaks.
    After looking at some old projects last night, I realized I've technically been working on Battle Castle for over a thousand years 12 years... That's starting in VX, and going through many iterations in Ace. Maybe I'll finish it in another 10 years. :kaoswt::kaodes:

    I have gone through something similar with my characters where I repurpose them. Although I have only made one story/world that truly made me think, "I need to revisit this eventually."

    In all seriousness though, when I've worked on it recently I have made good progress. I am trying to get a demo out for one of my other projects first, but I can release an "early look" version of my revamped Battle Castle demo if no one cares about less content.
    I have discovered the ultimate method of actually getting work done on your game: Make a to-do list with only a few, small things on it that you can do each day, and schedule it for a whole week. Things like "make this npc's dialogue", "make these items", or "fix these couple bugs". It actually works!

    But have you tried making them smaller? Seriously.
    I have HUGE to-do lists and this helps with decision paralysis.

    I'm one of those people that can't do one thing for too long so I'm all over the place so I can work on many things all in one go but so little of each gets done that it feels like nothing got done.

    I can see how your method would help many people though because sometimes when one is overwhelmed with too many details it turns them off to doing anything at all.

    After a few days of feeling like garbage from Covid, I feel like I might be getting better. Throat hurts less, a bit more energy, less congestion. I still don't think I'm going to make it back to work this week at all, though.

    Hey, I got COVID too. Actually, my entire family got it and now I can't go anywhere for the rest of my holiday.

    After 3 days of going to the hospital, my kidney stones are finally out, as is the drainage tube I had in my side for 2 of those. Unfortunately, as one more "F*** you" to end the year, I now have Covid.
    I had my urology appointment today, and it looks like I will be needing surgery to remove the kidney stones. Thankfully, the surgery doesn't sound too invasive, but I will have a stent in for a few weeks afterwards. It sure as heck sounds better than being in constant pain and taking opiates every day.

    Oh man... I hope all goes well for you. :o
    So after going to the ER a day ago, I found out I have kidney stones. This is not something you ever want to have, the pain is beyond horrible. :kaodes:
    Well, here we go. I just started a new project called "Wait, I'm a Hero Now?" in MV. It's pretty much purely humor, with a totally uncooperative MC, Sidney, who comes up with savage responses to any Hero related stuff she's supposed to do.
    Fricken hell! I dropped a bowl with mac and spam on my brothers floor, and was going to put leftover mac with whatever was still safe in there. It was only after I added the leftover mac that my brother told me he put floor noodles in there, now I wasted my planned dinner for tomorrow!
    Currently working on a playlist of songs that have inspired my work on revamping Battle Castle, and making sure they flow decently from one to the next. I will be posting it whenever I upload my next demo.
    This is the first song in the playlist.

    I made my brother sit down and build a mood playlist with me as a bit of a team building exercise. I hope he follows it, it took us awhile and I'd like our listening habits to be synced when working on the game. I know, odd thing to do - but you want yer team to be in sync ya know.
    Turning a specific vibe into reality is incredibly difficult. For instance, this song is one of the ones I listen to when working on my post apocalyptic project, and getting it's "feeling" into the game has been a real challenge.

    It might not hurt to mix up the soundtrack if you will. Find other songs with the same tone yer looking for. I sometimes make like playlists for the mood or character.
    I believe in you!
    What a stupid week so far! I was really short on sleep yesterday thanks to my back hurting and not falling asleep fast enough, now today I am 2 hours late for work because my damn alarm clock changed from the alarm setting, to the radio setting which I always keep muted.

    Now I have to stay late if I want to make up what money I lost, and lose out on 2 hours of free time! :kaolivid::mad:

Sometimes I wonder if I feature creep... 225 magic spells is a lot lol.
Being hit with nostalgia for something that's gone is both a great thing and so sad.

But being a creative means having ideas for bringing stuff back to life, which can be frustrating and rewarding in it's own right.
the urge to comment helpful things on forum posts but not using the same engine
