      In a mood. Want to mess around in VNM. I should really get off my butt and just draw my characters myself, but... -snore-

      Plinking away at the opening cutscene. Will I get beyond that, or keel over when I have to map a house/village?

        I kind of have no sense of scale, so I'm never sure exactly how big to make the maps or how much to load them up with. I hear too much empty space is a problem, and so I generally make my maps small to circumvent that, but then it just feels too tiny. T_T

        Maybe post a couple of maps on 'Game & Map Screenshots' and get some feedback on them?

      Suddenly in the mood to make a small game again. If only I could actually finish something in RM...

        Find someone you can talk about your project with. Having a friend you can gush to about the progress helps in my experience.

        That's a good idea! Mostly what kills my games for me is asset issues, though, not lack of inspiration (though that definitely doesn't help when everything gets gummed up in the works). I'm trying to gather my thoughts for a post in the Ideas That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread section.

        I finished a small game made with RPG Maker. It was pretty fun, a bit difficult at times, but it was worth it. PM me if you need any help :LZSproud:

      Byoooop. Thinking of looking for someone to do VNM sprites for me to play with.

        Does VNM have sprites? or am I misunderstanding

        The different character expressions in VNs are often referred to as sprites, if that helps.

        Why are you having bad feels about your work? Are you doubting its quality? :(

        Don't beat yourself up about it, everyone gets them.
        Try not to pressure yourself into success and take the time to try and sort out why it's happening if you can.

        Most of the time when I get into creative slumps it's because I'm self limiting myself to one goal too strictly. When I give myself permission to goof off with my creativity, fail, and do things that aren't in line with my goals, explore and have fun, I find myself able to create again. Remind yourself why you enjoy music in the first place and you'll find yourself unable to stop creating again.

        I was trying to finish one of my novels for a particular series. How to best explain... basically, it's about magical beings who wound up in a new world, and they're trying to adjust to it the best they can. (This kind of leaves out a lot though XD)

        As long as you don't give up, I'm sure you can get that maybe game into a full playable game. Just keep it small, do it to have fun learning new stuff and to create a game for you and your friends! ^^

        Thank you! I'm mostly struggling with mapping and trying to figure out what fancy gameplay elements (if any) I should put in, but I'm hoping that'll come to me as I develop it more.

        That's my initial plan, too. I hope to eventually have a VN that doesn't fail, but it'll be fun to play with in the meantime.

        I'm used to RM, making vn bed time story for my little cousin. Will definitely grab this VN maker if there's something that can't be made with RM.

      When I get money next, do I want to get sprites for my RPG or art for my Visual Novel? Decisions are hard.

        Which one is more important to you? Go with that which you are more interested in, or have the most work done for. :)

        In that case, it's neither of them XD Though I've been wanting the RPG sprites of certain characters for a while, because at least one character's sprite can be reused across games.

        Relax, just write down the parts of the story you already have planned. Sooner or later the rest will appear and you'll just need to make everything fit!

        That sounds good, but I don't see a subscription option on it. ;3; I'll have to keep it in mind for when money's less tight.

        I use NI Komplete Ultimate (currently on 11). Now that they have Symphony Essentials bundled in there I'm not as interested in also picking up EastWest. At first, I considered it because I'm such an orchestra girl, but Symphony Series is being quite nice to me!

        Does Komplete have any choir instruments? (Can't check right now.) Right now what's pulling me to EastWest is the choir instruments plus cost considerations. I gotta start saving up, haha...
