Decent article on Sid Meier on Kotaku. Some tips and tricks for game design buried in there too... http://www.kotaku.com.au/2013/06/the-father-of-civilization/ Jun 27, 2013

      It's amazing how much better my game feels with an ambient soundscape playing along with the music.

      Just spent $1300 today.. new vacuum cleaner and annual car bills (rego, CTP, roadside assist)

        Sigh. Spending money sucks, especially in large amounts.

        Hey light - idk how the details roll here, but as far as what they are like, well, the great thing about the Resource Staff is the way they both encourage and support each other - so I am sure you will get great feedback if you are looking for it, as well as great enthusiasm and appreciation for your work. You are dealing with good folks. =] Thanks for contributiing!

      Going to bed now.. will finish up my restaff submissions tomorrow.. most of them are actually going to be useful for myself so think they should be at least helpful to some people too...

      Has anyone noticed if you load a save game after making changes to other parts of the game, the parts you didn't edit get all messed up?

        Yeh.. it was all weird.. like the wrong overlay pictures being loaded, the wrong map init process being called etc.. the map index numbers haven't change even though I added more maps, the original maps are the same index number etc.. just odd glitchy behaviour

        Ah yes, that happened to me. I added a new item and for the sake of organization I had to move a couple other items around. Unfortunately, one item I moved was an important key item. I loaded my save file later and I didn't have it! I had some other item... I still haven't gotten around to fixing that...

        Obviously it's going to get messed up. This is why you always start a new game when you make some changes.

      As the work day winds to an end, I can't help but wonder whether my home internet will be online when I get home.. I really hope so.. but based on the response from the telco, I won't hold my breath..
    11. light487
      light487
      Still no internet at home.. the wholesaler dropped the ball somewhere.. hopefully today but they said latest will be tomorrow.. another reason moving house sucks.

      *FINGERS CROSSED* Hoping I have internet on at home tonight.... and that it is of a reasonable speed.. possibly will be slower than before due to greater distance but hoping it won't be too horrible.

        Spoke to them just now and while there's still no confrimation the work order has been completed, there's no problems reported either and the work order is set for completion today...

      Managed to create my own parallax backgrounds for my castle tower maps. I created some maps of the same size, filled them with trees, grass and river.. took a screnshots and apply blur in an image editor.. looks remarkably good.

        Yeh.. it's costly to move and more than a little inconvenient to be honest.. but I am still excited to be moving in to a better..

        Yup.. except now that I've commissioned the composer I have to explain what I want... it's quite difficult to put such things as dreamy ideas and emotionals into words

      Worked on my project for a few hours last night, having to rebalance everything on account of new skills has been... interesting. The battles definitely feel a lot more interesting now with lots of choices and stuff :)

        Sure you can. Not work in the editor, but you can definitely do some side work - from planning fine details, to writing out dialogue or even just more world development tidbits. There's always more work to be done. :D

        That's true I suppose.. and I am working on ideas and stuff.. always thinking about ways to improve things, making lists.. just can't do anything with them..
