Here's a picture of the overworld map with my custom overworld tiles! Since each pixel on the tileset is actually worth two, a map of this size loses no detail when exported through RPG maker, which halves the image size if the map is too big.
So, I've now updated my GMTK game jam game for what I feel will be the last time because I'm pretty tired of doing jam things for the week. So now, I'm probably going to just continue work on my rpg, but I think I'll wait until I get the feeling to do it again, but that won't be too long!
Doing the GMTK game jam was really fun! It was the first one I've entered, and I actually managed to finish a game way before the deadline. I can't link it here because rules, so it's on my itch.io page if anyone wants to play it (and please rate it if you can.) Anyway, it was a good break form working on JQ, even though it was way less of a break and more of a different kind of challenge.
I feel that regular battles just aren't a good mechanic sometimes. This is why I tend to enjoy RPGs that innovate with battle features, like Franken, Undertale, and Paper Mario. So, I will only do battles in Jimmy's Quest if it's necessary as a storytelling element. I know gameplay should come before the story, but I think by minimizing the amount of battles to fit my ambition, that'll make gameplay better. Thoughts?
I made a tool that streamlines the Galv Layer Graphics tool. Instead of looking up which numbers are supposed to go where, it asks a question and you choose different responses and it makes the numbers for you! Would anybody like to use it?
Decided I should actually start writing the entire plot sequence of the game down instead of thinking of things as I go and kind of having an idea of how it gets from A to B. Just need to write down what's already there, and then I can start really planning things! My best ideas are yet to come.
I think I've just about finished fighting the fight with the tileset I was most intimidated by for game jam. No pictures yet, the map isn't presentable, but I think the tileset will work! I'm very relieved XD
these 80+ gb updates on several years old games are the absolute worst. I just want to play for an hour or so before bed to unwind. Sorry, gotta spend that time downloading an update. Then my mods will be broken so I'll have to start over or wait for those to be updated to. Is a complete game within three years of the pay to be a beta tester period really to much to ask?
