  • Instead of actually working on my game, I worked on an Excel sheet of all the data in my game! # of skills, weapons, enemies, etc.
    ...I realize I have spent a LOT of time in the database ._. My favorite number? # of Unique Armours: 2093

    Update: Tried to apply my game's augment system (attaching items to armours to give bonus properties) and had to stop because the count surpassed *60K XD
    I think it's time to stop adding random traits and augments to my game :yswt:
    *Whoops, actually 20K. Double-tap keys in Excel = problems lol
    Still :3

    I love stumbling through my spreadsheets.
    I'd like to find one person who doesn't mock my phone! >.< My friends mock it, my boss mocks it, my coworkers politely but still mock it, my family mocks it! Why?! My phone is perfectly fine! Yes, it's coming up on 8 years old, but it does its job just fine. Hmph! ._.

    why they mock your phone? i'm curious

    That is a beautiful comeback and I am so going to use that haha!

    And my poor phone is mocked because it's so old. It's an S4 mini, and I love it. It works, it's durable, and it isn't built to be obsolete in 6 months so customers buy the convenient new one that just came out :p

    ah,i see...

    for me,i don't care if my phone is old. i have redmi a3 since 2016 & still usable until now (only my problem is the battery,it bulging & replaced with the new one)
    Curse daylight savings time. I wake up and it's still dark, so I think 'yay, I can go back to sleep for another hour before work!' Nope! Turns out I slept through my alarm this morning >.<

    Hawaii doesn't have daylight savings time, either. When every day/night is basically 12 hours, what's there to save?

    Many years ago, I was told by someone on the mainland that it was started so cows' milking time changes (circadian rhythm effect) would cause them less stress.

    In any case, my cat doesn't seem to sleep more or less during the day after a time change.

    Where I live, we have to wait for New York to agree with us before we can get rid of daylight savings :ysad:
    Ran into a joke I forgot I wrote while playtesting my own game. Proceeded to have a laughing fit on the floor over my own stupid humour XD
    Today is the day! I will be productive in game dev work! I will - *gets distracted by cat playing with her toy mouse* Awww <3
    Whelp. I tried to be productive.

    Haha! Much to my cat's dismay, I did actually get work done! I finished a new battler transmog in my game :D It was a pain...but I like how it turned out
    Finally able to return to work after months of lockdown. My poor feet are hurting :( I need to get used to working again haha

    Oh yeah, kimo, I buy everything for my game with gift cards from my bday and Xmas. I haven't spent a single cent of my own money on my game, and now it's a personal challenge to finish it that way~ ...I have a life, I swear.
    Thanks for your concern, howabout no, but I'm fine, really ^-^ It was a 6 hour bartending shift; I've done 12+ and lived. I enjoy my job, it's just my feet do not XD

    I don't feel satisfied until my body is sore after work.
    If I am sore when I go to bed, I sleep very well.
    Glad to see you are able to go back to work!
    I was having game-making fatigue...then I saw DLC on Steam that was previously MZ only - which I don't have so Steam said I could not get >.> - is now available for MV too!
    Deploy the gift cards! :D

    kirbwarrior
    I think most image resources work in both MV and MZ, so if you don't find something that's in both you can likely buy it in one and use it in the other.
    Cythera
    Cythera
    Steam doesn't let you buy DLC for products you don't have in your Steam library. I don't have MZ, so Steam won't let me buy MZ DLC sadly. There's always the Degica site, but my gift cards are obviously not valid there haha!

    Oh, weird. I've gotten free dlc for products I don't have, I didn't know you couldn't on paid DLC.
    It's astonishing how badly the loss of hearing in one ear affects balance .-. Tried to do my exercise routine and ending up doing sideways jumping jacks. Probably looked funny though!
    Thankfully it can be fixed. No permanent loopy jumping jacks!

    It's crazy how interconnected the systems are in your body, right?

    I'm going through some bad symptoms (like constant dizziness) myself lately and one of the current theories right now is that it could be an inner ear issue throwing everything off. Kind of in that vein, I've learned that...
    Wavelength
    Wavelength
    ...there are exercises you can train yourself in to reduce the effects on your balance.

    Hopefully you can fix your hearing issue entirely and get back to perfectly upright jumping jacks :D But if not, definitely look into the training you can do to improve your balance in the presence of ear issues.
    Cythera
    Cythera
    Yeah, I never thought a problem with my ear would make me lose balance haha!
    It is nothing permanent :) I'm going to a clinic tomorrow to get my ear cleaned out, then I need antibiotics for the infection. Painful, yes, annoying, extremely, but nothing that can't be fixed. I don't know how people with hearing loss do it o.o Seriously, a few days, and I'm so done with ear problems.
    Today I learned : How plastic is made for the sole purpose of making a joke in my game about Canadian milk being served in plastic bags.
    As a Canadian, I find it very amusing how confused my American friend gets over this concept of 'bagged milk'

    You'd confuse us Prairie folk about it too, you know. The last time I remember milk in bags, I was still a single-digit-age child, and all I ever did with it was poke it at the store and wonder what the heck that's all about while my parents picked up a perfectly normal carton.

    Wait wait, the prairies don't have bagged milk?! Ooof...as Canadians, we have standards to uphold, ya know! Bagged milk, living in igloos, breakfast everyday is maple syrup and bacon...

    The soda in bags is unforgivable though. It's awkward to hold, and you can't put it in a jug that has a cute cow printed on the side.
    Making AI for an enemy that actively transforms multiple times in battle according to the situation is...interesting. So many things to consider - is it currently transformed? What weaknesses does it have when transformed, so is it a good survival idea to transform now? Self buffs? What about debuffing the player's party?
    I love making enemy AI's for this reason!

    A mindblowing idea. Highly agree. something relating to Steampunk bosses (eg: Dishonored )and Fantasy bosses

    Thank you :) I stand on the idea that bosses don't need crazy stats to be a challenge!

    @Cythera Oh you share my mindset when it comes to bosses then? Cause I like to make bosses that react to the s### you can do and force you to play smart or you lose.

    I really dig the transforming thing for that reason.

    High stats by themselves are boring tbh... especially if they go into defense. :kaoangry:
    Wait, we have profile banners now?!

    Finally returning to one of my least favorite parts of game deving - mapping.
    Me, adding new map: Okay, so this map will be the - wait...Map 501?! O.O E-excuse me?!
    So, yup...breaking into the 500's for map count. Some are placeholders for now, since I haven't gotten around to actually mapping them yet. But soon. Very soon...oof, I'm scared.

    keep it up and it will go up even more :D but some even have much more, even though,
    my side game gets over 960 maps in total (devided by the game and turning around the
    mazes) and that has 4 diffent games to go in too :) and each map is different!

    mapping is time consuming, specially for some things that need edits to be inplented :p

    So I look forward that you hit the 999 maps (or over!)
    That awkward moment when you can't tell if your game's bosses are too easy, or if you're too good at your own game >.>
    Now I find myself wanting to buff my boss battles so I have a challenge for myself...but I do believe that's going to be too much for players haha!
    Mood today: "they're not bugs - they're unintended features!"
    I so wanted to update my game for New Years Eve, alas health issues are interrupting. A final how-do-you-do from 2020. At least there's always next year ;)

    Ah, so the tried and true Bethesda method.
    Finding it crazy hard to stay motivated and get things done - I really miss my job :( Another month to go, at the least.
    I have to get something done to feel semi-productive. So, I will get the next major update of my game out by New Years. If not, someone's gonna have to come yell at me, okay? Cool.

    A banana-rang!
    Eh??? Get it?? Not a boomerang, but a banana-rang!
    Okay, I'll go lock myself in my basement again. That's my social quota for the week. But if you think that joke will somehow make its way into my game, you're gosh-dang right!
    Ah, yes, I have finally found a game with my desired difficulty level - Ark Survival Evolved. My first experience was spawning in, walking ten steps, and getting mauled to death by a lvl 15 raptor dino. Perfection.
    Plus it was 80% off on Steam, so I could actually afford it :3

    I hear very good things about Stalker: Call of Pripyat with the Misery mod from my brother. I've only played it for a bit, and the itemization is insane. Also, you should check out Roguelike games. Wazhack, Sword of the Stars The Pit, Wasted, Tales of Maj'eyal, Dungeons of Dredmor, all are great fun and very difficult. Only in a roguelike can you put on an enchanted necklace and it starts choking you.

    Just texted my kid to tell him I'd made tranq arrows in Ark and the spellchecker helpfully corrected it to the more politically correct "trans arrows" lol. Anyhow tamed a carborenmys and made a saddle. AND I just made a shotgun so maybe I can handle raptors finally.....

    Am I getting work done, managing my time better, or neglecting real life responsibilities? :p

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.

I don't just wanna regurgitate the numbers I see, I wanna actually understand the calculations I'm making so I'm probably gonna make a post later with some calculations and what I THINK they mean to get some advice and corrections.

Edit: All (Most) of these will be tested in game prior. I just wanna make sure I understand what's going on under the hood if you will.
my girlfriend calls all my little chibi art cute lol... funny considering that wasn't the original art style of the game.
