Please, college. Please don't distract me from starting to work on that game idea I've had in mind for a while now. T_T Feb 16, 2018

        I was gonna say something but I'll refrain. A good technical degree like computer science or programming languages would be about all I would suggest if you want a decent job that pays and air conditioned. That or get an education in a technical skill like welding and machining. electrician.. etc . Anything liberal arts avoid like the plague.

        But is education (properly understood) only about getting a job? What happened to the idea that education helped you to become a well-rounded person with an interesting mind, and an understanding of the world you live in?

      So I've an idea for a game, and I 'might' have plans for it to go commercial. Thing is, I'd also like to stick to RTP only. Not a good combo

        Thanks for the insights and support, everyone. I still have some to think about but I think I'll go with this. :)

        @bgillisp Wow, now that's a surprise. Would you mind sharing some of the names with me? I'd like to take a look at these games. ^^

        However...I think the reason they sold that many copies is they have been out for years. So it's probably more a case of they slowly built up a fan base than anything.

        If it's like previous times, each judge got a set of games to play. Then they had to nominate which games they thought best and then those games would be played by another judge and so on.

        Getting 4 reviews meant you made it to the final round of scoring, top 15.

      I am going to have a couple of wisdom teeth extracted, both on different sides. General or local anesthesia-which would you recommend?

        I had a local anaesthesia because they don't give you a general anaesthesia here for something like that. They did one side first and only my lower jaw, it wasn't all that bad, and that's coming from someone with a heavy case of needle- and bloodphobia. I was scared as hell :p be sure to ask for painkillers and a way to clean the weound though, they didn't give me anything to clean the wound so I got a nasty infection. The upper jaw is easy though, that one was done in 5 minut...

        Depends .. upper jaw is easier in general. A dentist said to me if your lower jaw is solid oak the upper jaw is balsa wood. Also if the wisdom teeth are generally in good nick it's not too bad. Also ask you dentist if there are any complications. I was put out for mine because my roots are special. They curve inwards so they dan't just pull my teeth they needed to extract a decent chunk of bone too.

        Different PayPal address from where I am now, so I can't make any purchases. Don't want to change the currency or anything-it's just that different addresses prevent me from buying anything.

      Probably silly question, but games that are put on Greenlight don't have to be commercial to be released on Steam if it got enough votes, right?

        Yeah, I am aware about the fee. Pretty expensive but at least if the game is good enough, it can be on Steam one day and that makes it worth it if you want to build your name. XD

        That is actually true, but sadly it would be super hard for me to get that fee. :D


        So I would be a bit forced to do it as a commercial. :/


        And free games often get downvoted for no reason, because the workshop is there too. Readed many commenting that way. I'm happy to see good new RPG Maker games. :) (\s/)

        Once you pay that fee you can upload as many games as you want there, plus these money you spent will go all to charity. It's totally worth it at the end, I'm working on getting one aswell for my Steam account so I can upload my games.

      If anyone in the IGMC needs a few maps done urgently, take a look at my workshop. Really cheap prices for IGMC runners and you get your maps in the same day or next day if it's a large order at most. ^^

      Well, tried to turn the steam punk tiles into a tileset today, but turns out the walls and roofs just don't work that way. :v No choice but to parallax. Well, at least I know what to do now. XD
    17. Miss Nile
      Miss Nile
      So what's easier . . . parallax mapping a huge steampunk city for my game (for the first time btw, never tried parallax before,) or just trying to turn the steampunk tiles into a useable tileset? :3 Hmm...

        Turning them into a useable tileset. You can then use that tileset in as many maps as you need, whereas parallaxing works on one map at a time.

        an artist from this site once explained to me that regular mapping is 20% of the work for 80% of the quality. So decide: is that extra work worth the extra quality for you?

      4. Miss Nile
        Miss Nile
        Oh it's not the quality. I am generally in favor of editor mapping. :D But it's the tiles that are only available for parallaxing and I am unsure whether to try turning them into tilesets or just use them as they were. :)

        There's no doubt that the product is better in parallaxing (not always though) and hand-drawn maps, but I doubt one could ever finish a game on his own this way, especially if he's doing everything else on his own. D"=

      Short RPG games with 2 hours maximum of gameplay or long ones with more than 10 hours? It's a good question, right? I've yet to fight the answer from players. XD

        Gameplay and Story. I prefer a good balancing act of both. However, in terms of gameplay, if it is good, it doesn't matter if it is short or long, it will still be good. If the gameplay is poor but you have a long game..then...yeah..It all comes to innovative and attractive gameplay mechanics, not the playtime.


        However, IF the story is really good, then gameplay can be tolerable. Which is why I mention that it matters upon the balancing act of both story and gameplay.

    Hi there,


    Thank you for taking the time to view my profile and know about me. As you've kindly done that, I'll let you know all you can know. ;D


    I'm Neveen, or as you know me, Miss Nile. You can judge from the name that I'm indeed Egyptian. :D I study pharmacy in Cairo University, hoping to be a successful pharmacist someday in the future. But well, that's me the student. :D


    Online, I'm a really fun girl if I say that myself, pretty easy to talk to and quite friendly. I like reading and writing as my main hobbies, and I have a collection of short stories that I am proud of writing. You can find them here,


    http://www.launchora.com/missnile


    Of course, I also love game-making (which is why I am here in the first place. XD) I started game making as early as when I was 12 or something, back in the days when RPG Maker XP was still the trending engine. :D Of course, I was still a little child back then so it's needless to say that my first attempts were all failures. XD But I learned a lot from them and I had a lot of support behind my back from friends who encouraged me to the end. :D


    In September 2009, I released my first game, Fantasy on Mother's Day . A short, 30-minute long game with a light-hearted atmosphere. I still consider myself a beginner at the time of its creation but nevertheless, that game means a lot to me as my first game and all. :D


    In August 2012, came my next game, Arabian Nights: The Three Apples and most recently, in October 2014, I released Fantasy on Valentine's Day. You can find all three games here,


    http://www.snowrosegames.webs.com


    Please take the time to view them and perhaps download them and play them. If you do, let me know what you think. I always appreciate new opinions. :D


    Hmm, that's all. If you ever need a friend to talk to, I'd be more than happy to become your friend. Thanks again for visiting my profile. :D
