  • The intricate play between supply and demand and COVID-19 has increased the price of my new computer system by $300 since I got the first quote 6 weeks ago :( Guess I don't REALLY need a new monitor, and I can pay for Windows 10 activation later. On the upside, I hope to be putting it to use next weekend.

    That's a nice one to use when you want to black out an area on the A tiles (why isn't there an 'erase' tile for the autotiles?) I use it a lot for interiors.

    I probably used the tile to cover the out-of-bounds area and then changed the passage setting. Ah well, nice to know I do not have to avoid that square anymore.

    So no staff cuts in our department yet, but the system I look after has an end date. Thinking of studying again so I'm ready for a complete non-IT career change when that end date arrives. Work full time, study full time, RPG Maker, real life, easy, right?

    I always thought that's super interesting but building such a house around here around be highly frustrating simply through bureaucracy. But I think that long term we need to build in a way that makes the most efficient use of the water we use, the space that we occupy and the food that we need. Not only as private persons, but also as cities providing living space.
    Tldr: I think you would make an awesome architect

    Yes bureaucracy is ever a problem :p.

    Traditionally in Holland architects would design buildings with green spaces around it (those meaning someone with gardening skills should detail that part). I’ve seen some recent projects though where the design was more of a coop between architects, biologists, ecologists and gardeners. That’s already a step forward.

    @EmeraldDemnia thank you so much for your definition - that describes the essence of permaculture beautifully. Yes, I also haven't seen much in the way of combining the two, so I'm hoping in the time it takes me to become qualified, there might already be great demand and little supply.
    Just found out a lot of departments at work have been told to cut staff. Our department's manager has called a special meeting for Friday. Guess I'm glad I already paid for MZ ...

    This new computer has been prophecized to bring upon the end of days through your genius methods of gam mak. Sacrifices are being performed now to ensure it arrives safely and to standard. Good day mortal of high meaning.

    My little ragdoll x foster kitties both go to their new homes tomorrow. They've grown so much and we're gonna miss them.
    Calculated my tax refund - CHEERS
    Looked at my student debt - cries
    Still, might be just enough left over to pay for my new computer, which would be awesome!
    And my student debt will be fully paid, which is also pretty nice.
    Tomorrow I will be getting FIVE foster kitties - all ragdoll cross! Three of them will be going to another carer later. But for a few hours, I'll have five to cuddle! I wonder how my 3 adult cats are going to cope with this ...

    @Dalph we've been fostering for about 18 months now. I was very unsure how ours would react at first. The female is very no-nonsense. So we went really slowly at first. They have all been awesome. Our big male, who was also a rescue (from family) is incredibly affectionate and caring towards all the kitties we get.

    Our "youngest" is a 5 year old pure ragdoll, and he doesn't have a lot of patience with the kitties we bring home. I'm very interested to see if the next lot being the same breed as him triggers any different reaction. Probably not :D

    All these people getting new computers. My brother builds them for a living, so I got him to quote me on a low-end gaming machine. Now I just have to get the money for him to build it. Hubby is jealous :)
    When you spend 6 hours trying to get a 40-line script to work, and when it finally works you realise the problem was that you had a dot in some variable names.

    I've been redrawing my entire game in just particles. I no longer remember what the bitmap was like... I've gone full particle native. :kaoback:

    I had this problem with like, Victor's Materia Engine for VX Ace. If a player character left the party for a cutscene, the materia they had went with them disappeared which actually bothered me so much that I spent a solid week figuring it out. Then I realized the problem code was one tiny line, snipped it and everything is fine. :|

    Hey there! Wanted to thank you for suggesting the RPG Maker MV resources! I confused pixel art with painted assets and, in the end, I think painted assets will look much better on my game. I ended up buying First Seed Material's packs :LZSsmile: Thank you! Have a great day!
    For the last freaking time, Yanfly set aside funds to pay people to update his plugins for new versions of the engine. Can everyone please get over the "no more Yanfly plugins" drama now?
    Shaz

    Other plugin creators aren't going to make Yanfly's plugins, and a ridiculously large number of people depended on them. Just look at any "what plugins should I use?" thread and it'll only be a few posts before you see someone advise "just install all the Yanfly plugins"
    Shaz

    And it's not so much a recognition thing for other coders. It's just the volume of plugins and anyone who wanted to make theirs compatible had to be aware of and understand all of them. I just don't have the time, and if my saying "I will not provide compatibility patches" means fewer people use mine, so be it. I also don't aim for mine to be compatible with Moghunter's.

    I just don't make public plugins. It isn't for everyone. I've made a few for people on request, but mostly I just make my them for me, and answer what questions I can when others are building theirs. The whole Yanfly MV era had weird, unintended side effects on the public plugin community for sure, but it'll settle down and figure itself out soon.
    Walked away from my computer to get changed. Came back to find my 2 foster kitties playing on my desk/keyboard. They had dimmed my screen, disconnected my wi-fi, turned on airplane mode, and attempted to download something from the forum. I'm sure there are more surprises in store.
    Wanted to watch a movie, but hubby said it's 3 hours long and would run too late. So we didn't. Then he came in an hour later, "do you want to watch a movie?"

    I had to preorder. Even though their website said they had them in stock, when I asked, they only had them for customers who had preordered. $450 but no games afaik. On the phone they said "we don't know when our next order will arrive" but in person it was "we're getting a delivery about every 2 weeks". So hopefully by the end of this week ...

Well.. I was going to post my randomly generated road experiments... But the new "Attach Files" on profile posts seems to be quite buggy. Also there's no more option to insert Imgur images. Highly unfortunate. Guess I'll give them a bit to fix it and go back to messing with stuff.
my first day back to working on my project and i'm pooped!! hope to get back in the rhythm soon!
I just came up with a very original RPG Idea. This is so well written that it might be the first RPG I actually finish making. (I’ve stopped all my projects halfway through development. I don’t think this one will be the same.)
Became a news junkie... except for those times I got inspired and published a chapter of any of my crazy stories. XD
Finally returning to one of my least favorite parts of game deving - mapping.
Me, adding new map: Okay, so this map will be the - wait...Map 501?! O.O E-excuse me?!
So, yup...breaking into the 500's for map count. Some are placeholders for now, since I haven't gotten around to actually mapping them yet. But soon. Very soon...oof, I'm scared.
