      First day of a new semester and I already think evening classes should be illegal.

        So many night owls here!
        @Finnuval Contrary to that, I'm such a big baby who is too tired to stay awake past 10 PM. xD
        @Wavelength I like being done with classes as soon as possible, knowing I'm free until the next day to do anything I like. The most productive and interesting thing I'm capable of at night is sleeping.

        @Traveling Bard Thanks, I'll try to study real hard this semester. At least that's the plan. (that's always the plan but it seldom happens)
        @The Stranger True, most people are sleeping in class in the evening or decide to skip instead. But wouldn't morning classes be the same?

        I think there's less people attending night classes than morning ones. You also tend to get a different group of people. I'm also just a night owl.

        Right now I'm still using RTP & placeholder maps but I intend to use Time Fantasy eventually & even doodled around with it for a few small forest maps. Luckily the way I designed the game makes it so I don't have to have that many maps :)

        @kirbwarrior I think all hiking shoes have such a sole surface that the mud gets stuck in the gaps and then when hardens, it makes it hard to clean. It wouldn't happen if they had flat soles, but then it would be more slippery, I guess.
        It is only a problem in the forest/on the field after it rains. I just need to avoid these places when the ground is too wet. :(

        @Traveling Bard Cold weather, I wonder what that means for you in Texas. I also thought last week I liked cold weather because it was way too hot. (Though I know for 25° C sounds probably nice) Now the temperature dropped 10 degrees and it's too cold for me, haha.

        I hate umbrellas. Don't know why. Still prefer the plastic raincoats, even if only kids wear them here.

        @mishakoc It is normal during winter for it to get down to 10°C though I've experienced it get as low as 0°C for a bit. It doesn't really snow here. I can remember 3 times in my 31 years of life that it "snowed". I guess it's one of the benefits of this place if you aren't a huge fan of cold weather :)

        Right now I'm using very different tileset and sprite art, so this wouldn't fit, but I'd like to finish the generator someday. But I'm no pixel artist, so the quality would be quite... questionable.
        No idea how to shade it, haha. Or how to properly draw complex clothes and armour.

        It's interesting it reminds you of XP, because it's actually Fighter08 from the XP RTP. :) Different clothes though.
        Yeah, the XP RTP is much better than MV or VX/Ace. Too bad it doesn't have a character/battler generator, otherwise I'd definitely use it.

        :kaoblush: Thanks, I'll try to work hard (hopefully). But I have no idea what I'd do for battlers if/when I try to finish the generator. That's way too much work.

        That overly frilly dress was Rococo, 18th century fashion worn by wealthy French aristocrats. For a more simple style around the same period try Baroque?
        Although the simple and elegant dress you showed would be from 10th-14th century medieval/dark ages. From the 16th century is Renaissance/Elizabethan and it starts to gets very theatrical and frilly from then on :)

        I played a game like this made in vx ace! It was called it's our revolution. The objective of the game to gather as many followers as possible without getting stuck (like the snake game in old phones). Nah I still think it's cute ^^ MV graphics are very cute that's why they don't really fit in with serious rpgs.

        Yeah, snake is what I was going for. To my disappointment, it is way too easy to implement.
        The various levels designs and difficulties will probably be more difficult than eventing.
        I wonder if I should make every follower distinct...
        I don't like MV's graphics much. Ace's was better, XP's the best. But they don't have battlers sadly.

        I find it easier to manage. Sometimes, a map ends up cluttered with so many events that it becomes a pain to work with; this often happens when you have a few different cutscene events, plus the standard map events, on one map. I don't do it for every map, just for certain ones.

        I usually have a lot of events on a single map, so I use picture labels to know immediately which are cutscenes, mini cutscenes, initialization, teleports, etc. So I don't have any blank events.

        I thought about using copies of maps for cutscenes but I feel it would make me more confused than it would be helpful to me. But I understand it might be helpful to other people.

        Music seems like something people don't even register consciously when watching movies/playing games, even if it's the easiest and default way to set the mood, I think.
        A lot of scenes would be so awkward without music - remember a scene - three people staring at each other for 5 minutes, just the camera changes. But since there was a soundtrack that made it mysterious/epic, it wasn't such bother watching it.

        Yeah, music and sfxes often fall into that categorgy of things that you don't notice when it's done well, but which you notice if it's bad or missing entirely. Take footfall sounds, for example, it's not something you tend to praise or even notice in a game, but it's something people notice when a game doesn't have them.

        And, as you said, music can be, and often is, the main reason we feel certain emotions in a game or film. Music has a powerful effect on us. Music can make us feel things, or even recall old memories. Would your favourite emotional scene from a game be as powerful without the music and sound design? Probably not.

        @The Stranger I do have walking boots actually. Use them as winter shoes and shoes for hiking. But in summer it gets way too hot so for normal walking in woods I just wear sneakers.
        I don't really get blisters, my feet just feel they're going to fall off.

I feel like the problem with drawing is I often don't see mistakes that are very obvious to other people because I'm so used to my drawing style. I usually only see them several years later, haha.

        The style is recognizable, the colors are soft. Made soundly and well. Hairstyles are very affect the look of the character. For example, long hair lying on the chest visually lengthen the neck very much. And it concerns not only toon, but also living people.

        I've only finished two projects, and neither I've shared with anyone else. One was made using that old pirated version of RM2k3 (you couldn't buy an English version way back when), and the other was made in XP. Found it a lot easier to finish projects back then too; probably because it was all so new and exciting.
