  • 140/320 maps updated with new region settings... This bottle of alcohol needs to be a lot bigger. :LZSskeptic:

    I generally try to have a good Trance Music mix lined up in advance for tasks like that - a stiff drink makes me too likely to make mistakes that I won't notice until much later.

    If this bottle of alcohol WERE a lot bigger, you would have some very ... er ... interesting ... maps by the time you got to 320!

    @Wavelength Ha! You act like I need to be drinking to make mistakes. Oh wait... :LZSsad:

    @Shaz Or really interesting maps up until maybe 260-280, messes till about 300 and a keyboard imprint on my face with 60 unfinished maps in the morning. :LZScheeze:
    Sometimes I ask myself the important questions, like can I use SRD Hudmaker as a message system? Spoiler yes, yes I can. :LZSexcite:

    The upside of the method is you can easily create and move text and pictures all over the screen. And change how they look, animate them or whatever. Weirdly if you put in the effort it's a very versatile message system.

    I'd probably need to just make a thread to include all the pics due to the low character limit here. This is a pretty complicated and weird idea, you need http://sumrndm.site/hud-maker/ to try it. Personally I'd recommend that plugin anyway because it makes fantastic HUDs.
    I never really knew Common Events had all traits of the event that called them... So many wasted getSelfVariable commands. :LZSsad:
    I really, really like PVGames stuff, especially the characters. But the game's currently using FSM tilesets...

    Get them for your NEXT game

    then spend months fighting the urge to redo your game so you can use them sooner

    Oh I did... and I definitely am. xD

    I did have the idea of potentially using FSM to represent an imaginary world and PVG's stuff to represent a more harsh real world. But I also run my own business so I might not have the free time for such a grandiose endeavor. Still if I don't use them in game, I'm definitely using them every game after. =D
    Ironically it wasn't until I disabled Yanfly's Stop Map Movement plugin that my events stopped moving during automatic events. :LZSskeptic:

    I have no idea what kind of event sorcery/unholy plugin combination made it suddenly start doing that. But given that I started writing minor plugins of my own... Those are probably at fault. XD
    Creates a whole system to let the player build their own tile based maps. Scraps it because it's just such a gameplay disconnect. ;_;

    Well, you might not need literal depth. Remember that Terraria is in two dimension and your engine likely also is (mind, different dimensions which would make for a very different game). As for digging, that can just be one type of way to make a tile (changes it to a dig spot).

    Yeah I considered just having a different type of tile to represent each level of depth. Of course I'd also need a legend over to the side to show that since I couldn't visually show the depth.

    It's likely an idea for a later project though. I already have a fairly unique gameplay/combat given that my game essentially has no floor. So the only map I was letting them collect tiles to play with was basically the "status menu". I did enjoy building towns with them though.... Ironically more than I like actual mapping. XD
    Sometimes I forget when helping people with events that they don't have access to the event systems I built. :kaoback:

    It always surprises me when I find people don't run a common event each turn in battle. Now, that's one thing couldn't live without.

    I dont run common event in battle, in fact, i rarely do. Why though?

    @Milennin Honestly I think it's just the natural progression of new people and eventing. They start out doing minor eventing, then major eventing, and after some amount of time they start to realize how it's just the same code over and over so they switch to using more Common Events. Eventually I assume the next step is start making those Common Events into minor plugins.

If there's one thing I hate about myself, it's that I procrastinate. Ever since I started looking stuff up on how to properly balance and create armour, weapons and skills; I've let myself down in progress.
So I was at the dentist yesterday and she said,"I'm gonna propose to Dr. Anderson...(Then she paused as she thought what to say). And I said,"I think he is a little old for you." She laughed good naturedly. Then she jabbed sharp things in my mouth for the next 3 hours.
Update on my experiment with uploading my Android games to the Amazon app store: made about $45 in 2 months, but 0 sales for the past 3 weeks. Not sure its worth the effort.
