      Phew! Tinkering with a function to deep parse plugin parameters and insert default data (including structs). Recursion makes my head hurt.

        All this talk about inserting default data deep into those plugin parameters is making it hard to get any work done

      All of my projects eventually transform into a testing ground for plugins and practicing tile techniques. I tinker too much ...

        Try making a game plan beforehand. That's what a lot of teams use design docs for. They're more like a path, you set your rules and you stick with them. That helps from the straying that can happen. Don't add anything new or special or tack anything on. Do what you set out to do, then when polishing everything up maybe you can play around a bit. Just don't forget to add all the pizazz!

        I tend to scatter my testing across multiple projects. Usually because I create a new project to test a plugin or a technique on, and never combine anything from the previous project. This is why I have 29 test projects in VX, 35 in VX Ace, and 12 in MV. I am a digital hoarder ...

        The journey won't end. Once you've done learning the plugin, how to use and write it, new techniques, you will begin to test some designs.

        For example:
        First, you learn how to implement limited inventory
        Then you learn how to design a game with limited inventory

      Feh! I am getting back into the RPG Maker scene and wanting to create a horror game for Halloween ... but no ideas are flowing.

        Hmm, I might try and run with that idea, see how it turns out. Or blend silly themes or standard horror themes.

      Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell is a wonderful show. Although I admit to be somewhat biased, as I rather enjoy magic and whimsy. I tentatively peeked at the series on Netflix and several hours later I have no more episodes to watch.

      Since @Quasi is meandering away from RPG Maker whatnots, I spent all day doing a from-scratch re-write of his Simple Shadow plugin to include various fixes and features.

      And everything looks the same. Oh well, at least I know the back end is completely different. Ugh. The realm of sprites and tilemaps is a terrible, confusing place ...

      Is RPG Maker VX ever on sale? I have purchased every RPG Maker except for VX because I can never seem to come across a good deal. I would like to tinker around with and/or peruse through super old projects, but not if nostalgia is going to cost me 60USD ...

        Maybe not as often as the others.  I know VX is not on Steam, and a lot of the sales are through steam, including humble bundles and stuff (though VX might still be included in humble bundles and you just get a code for this version - can't really remember).

        Yeah, it was on sale during Golden week if I remember correctly. At the very least, I bought it this year when it was on sale. :)

        It really bugs me when people say "Cart".... >_<   When I was a kid, they were called CARTRIDGES.  :p Alas, I digress.  

        I owned a real NES when I was a small boy, and I frankly can't wait for the mini version.

        Ahh, very nice. I'm doing so via the Splatoon soundtrack. Never listened to it before but it's... definitely different from Nintendo's typical style.

        Still haven't heard a definitive answer. Could be just normal VXA bundled with a Luna Engine key, which I have already used.

      What I find strange is that I can diligently work on graphics or code, but the moment writing dialog or story is required I suddenly lose interest. I like dialog and story, but getting started is painful ...

        Is because making a game involves a lot of artistic areas, is hard to be with the 100 inspiration for all of them, plus some abilities require a different atmosphere and change one to another is painful

        See I've got the opposite. I can write for hours, my wife has to force me to sleep some times when I'm working on dialogue and narrative. Graphics I just have to finish what I start before I can stop. But coding script? If I could get away with never doing it, I certainly would.
