    Maybe so, but Its needed in order for me to progress the skills without having different tiers.

    I have "Upgrades" of my skills, but I've designed them in such a way that they can still be useful at low levels (like, if you'd not taken a single upgrade). But, I'm also using very little multiplication and division in my formulas. I'm mostly sticking to set values and addition/subtraction. I didn't want the nightmare of percentages and such.

    Cool, Im using a sort of skill tree to set points in my skills, that way they need some sort of modifier when a point is spent in order to recieve more damage.
    Got stung by a wasp today, good thing that I'm allergic to them... oh wait.

    :o Holy crap. Hope you're all right. I have a fear of them due to having been stung by one as a child.

    Thanks :) It's all right. I mostly get extremely swollen and looks like a baloon xD Good thing it didnt get me in the neck or something similar, ugh. I usually dont mind them, but because of my allergy they freak me out a bit.
    Played some AC: Black Flag today and wow It's certainly the best AC game I have played! (Even though the mechanics are almost identical like always) And wow It feels amazing to be able to push that insane graphics with my new GPU :D Löve it!

    @Darr123 Ye that was one of the things I found to be a bit boring too. Traveling from town to town doing the same thing over and over. I feel like AC4 has a lot more to explore (like the treasure chests are an awesome addition) And there's more variations in the locations. I also noticed that there's a lot fewer collectibles in the city (I have only come to Havanna so far) so i guess that mean that they will be spread out a lot more and needs even more exploration, which is a huge plu...

    plus... I'm just in love with the ship! I could sail around for hours and still love the game! xD Also, I think I managed to accidentally delete your post, sorry :/
    Hmm I think I did something wrong with the humble bundle. I payed 10 dollars as custom, which SHOULD have given me Ace and XP according to the bundles? Or am I at fault here? In any case it wont matter, all I got is still so worth the money :D Just find it a bit strange.
    Seems like my game will be on hold a lot during the summer. I just can't work on it that much because of the weather... Even though my health condition makes it hard to do anything productive outside anyway.

    That's good stuff, man. Behaviour sprites add a lot of depth to the cutscenes in my opinion.

    It's a blast =3 try to do some non linear behaviors as well. Spell casters deserve a spell casting behavior, I even did a knife toss for a thief. It's a great way to add little flavor or big ones like interacting two while hugging.

    Yeah, I'm pretty bad at editing sprites though but I hope I will be able to make some easier edits. So far I have managed to make a laugh behaviour, and a 'stare down the floor' behaviour. They could have been better, but they work pretty ok. Making a spell casting behaviour or anything similar might be a bit too complicated for me though. Will keep in mind about the non-linear behaviours, and see if I can work something out :) What do you think about the edit I linked? Does it work?
    After reading a lot of writing tips when it comes to theme, character development, and plot I almost feel like throwing in the towel xD Making a game is like writing a novel with graphics. And here I dream about being an author haha! (Maybe I just need a small break) :D

    Yeah, revision is really the key here. The best authors I know do different passes on their manuscript to tweak each element like a pass for characterization, a pass for theme, ect. No one can do it all at once.

    "Maybe I should just write without thinking too much, and then come back and change things..." Yes, absolutely. Creativity is the engine behind good writing, and it acts spontaneously; it has no master. During the day at work, if I get an idea, it usually comes out of nowhere. I jot it down, and put it in my game later. When I'm writing the game dialog, sometimes it flows (the process is actually called "flow" when you're totally creatively engaged), and sometimes ther...
    Is it required to have some sort of twist in the game? I have some events that will change and twist the plot a bit, but I'm starting to hesitate if they are good enough, and I'm having trouble to come up with something I'm even happier with xD

    Twist isn't really necessary, but as the others said, it's nice when the story isn't too predictable. Surprise the player. Hold them on the edge of their seat concerning what might happen next. Put a bit of mystery in there. Make the player ask questions.

    just try to find something that you're happy with, period. if it includes a twist, go with it. if it doesn't, then don't. the twist isn't mandatory at all, but if it works, then twist and twist hard. whatever works for the story, i reckon.

    I agree with Matseb. A good story line is not predictable. Surprise is one of the greatest gifts an author can give. A twist, if you are implying the exact opposite of what your plot is setting up, is not necessary.
    Gonna drown my sorrows with some Chrono Trigger xD The game-making and my health has been pretty bad this weekend. But hey, better times awaits :)

    I remember you saying about it. Is the pain really bad? I was going to say, perhaps game-making could take your mind off it. I always find it that it helps me to forget about the bad stuff that's going on in my life.

    I know how you feel with the unknown illness and lots of pain thing. I have CFS and Fibromyalgia, took the doctors ages to even admit that there was something actually wrong in the first place and it took years after that to get a proper diagnosis. I wish you luck in your diagnosis, feel free to PM me if you need someone to commiserate with.

    Last year I couldn't stop dehydrating from April till November even after I drink plenty of water, I practically knew most of the ER staff because every other week I was back getting IV's. They weren't sure what was causing it. Being dehydrated comes with really bad migraines and blurry vision.
    I so want to continue on my project, but my brain is in a freeze today (It usually is anyway) :D

    Hehe no not at the moment xD I'm having second thoughts about my system's and I'm not sure if they will work out like I intended to. I'm trying to simplify some things a bit :p
    Matseb2611
    Matseb2611
    Simplifying is good, so long as it is still fun. All in all though, it's hard to know what system is best for the game until other people try it out and give feedback.

Is there anyone who would like to resize some of sprites I've got and put them into MV sheet? I'm bad at that kind of things. I want to make a game, but I lack in resources and I'm bad at recolouring them, so my only option was to use a sprite maker from one game (Ive got permission to use it) but these are sprites from VX Ace and I only have MV. So, is there anyone interested in helping me?
Wow! This game looks great! Streaming now :D
Working on a system that allows you to define events in an easy to use text file format!!! Would you use such a thing? 0o
Have my fingers crossed, waiting for a discount sale on MZ on Steam.. Its normally around the corner during Halloween or x-mas season on Steam, if i remember right..
