  • Work is literally killing my brain and soul. I'm going to play a relaxing game tonight and watch something stupid on TV.

    That's how I've felt the last few weeks. Many a night I've just vegged to a baseball game while I fall asleep on the couch.

    Sounds like a loose definition of 'literally' to me ;p When you have that kind of spiritual depletion at work, make good use of your few hours away from it, whether it's something traditionally fulfilling, or just really fun.
    "Respec" in a singleplayer RPG is a tacit admission from the dev that they didn't know how to balance their game.

    Is DQXI unbalanced because it has a respec?

    If it's a singleplayer RPG, then yes. I thought I made that clear like 4 times by now. If a dev includes Respec in a singleplayer RPG it's because they are attempting to balance the game, but they know they did a terrible job of it... so they expect the player to do the job of balancing for them with a Respec.
    32 hours of no sleep. Stayed up all night to clean. Probably still failed inspection. But, I'm so tired, I no longer care anymore. Bed.

    I know exactly how this is. If all you have energy for is clearing the floors and surfaces, go for it. People live in spaces, and that shows. I'm sure inspection people expect a lived in place. Do your best and get some sleep! Good luck!

    I want to work on my game. I can't. Apartment Inspection tomorrow. Was literally given 2 days notice instead of the usual 4. No sleep now.

    Save your time and slip the Inspector a $20 bill... I'm kidding, I'm kidding. :D Hope your night of labor & chores goes relatively easily, Tai. Good luck.

    Well, aside from having mopping, vacuuming, and dishes left to do, I think it went alright. Though, I'm pretty sure the inspectors will disagree. I want to stay home now, I'm so freakin' tired, ha ha.
    Maybe I'm strange, but I'm kind of a screenshot map freak. I love when I can get full maps of games or levels taken via screenshot.

    Never heard of it. But, I love it for all video games. :D Even 3D rendered games.

    this plugin makes it so that when you press print screen and game, instead of actually taking a screenshot of your monitor, and actually screenshots the entire map that you're on in game. XD

    The worst part of being a Supervisor? Having to remind workers, including ones that aren't yours, to be adults and do their job.

    Sounds like you're doing your duty. It might not win you any friends, but you're not paid to be mates with everyone.

    They made me Supervisor after years of being "Team Leader" and getting results, ha ha. Created the job just for me, because I was already doing it. But, it is frustrating to have to remind people, "Uh... we have a job to do. You're holding up MY JOB because you won't do YOUR JOB. Gab and goof off later!"

    I make a good Supervisor primarily because I read people well and don't take nonsense from people. I bend plenty, but there are points when I stop bending and playtime is over, and you need to do your job, or I will ream you in front of God and Everybody to do it, not caring how it makes me look. And it will usually make you look stupid if I have to do it.
    I've been playing "Kingdom's Item Shop" lately. I actually had a ton of fun despite the terrible English translation and grindy mechanics.

    Yeah, you sort of manage everything in the game, you don't really get to be "idle" that much. You have to reach certain reputation levels, certain levels of "total money earned", then you have to collect resources, discover recipes, do Requests for people (recipes and requests come in the form of riddles you must solve).

    Then, on top of that, there are thresholds of items you need to sell for stat upgrades. Like say you sell 30 "Potion", you can hit the threshold and gain a "Soldier's HP +5" upgrade. It encourages you to craft and sell everything, including raw materials, to make the job easier and more efficient.

    When the soldiers hit enemies in combat, the enemies drop resources in random places on the battlefield and you have to run around during combat to pick the items up. And if you get hit during combat, you get "knocked out" and have to be taken home. Enemies drop regular and rare resources... there are bosses with big loot chests at the end... No time to be idle as you even have to pick up the money in your shop.
    I don't feel productive at work, so I've been playing Factorio. I'm revamping my whole factory for robot workers instead of belts. -_-"
    Sometimes, it takes me a while to know who my characters are as people. Who is my Paladin? Ever hear "Freshmen" by The Verve Pipe? Yep.
    I just watched 2 seasons of a show... not because it was good... But, because I thought the concept was amazing. Yep, I'm weird.

    Later on, they admit that there was a created place called "The Middle", where exactly 1 person in the universe resides because she managed a net total of 0. She did terrible things and one really great thing at the end of her life to balance it out. She lives in a place of endless mediocrity. It's filled with her favorite beer... but it's always warm. Things like that.

    Eternal mediocrity. Ha-Ha! Your favourite show is on the tele, but it's a rerun. And only she exists in that place? So, mediocre and boring.
    my friend wanted to play Warframe with me last night. We did. I'm playing Dead Rising 4 today. And making Relics for my own game. :D
    Watched an anime movie. Planetarian. I bawled like a baby for the last 25 minutes of the whole movie. I live for movies like this.

    I really hate trying to design houses in mapping. Not the interiors, but the exteriors. They always look so boxy and out of proportion.

    I use 2-tile high for an average height room, but more for taller rooms. I try to make my buildings the same size on the outside as they are inside. I also look at buildings in reality. The average house isn't very big at all when you think about it. I guess it's easier for modern games, because a lot of modern buildings are fairly boxy and practical in design.

    It just looks really weird to have rows of houses all the same dimensions... Especially if they're not in like a modern city setting. The roof tiles even look strange slapped against them. I dunno… only part of the RMMV RTP I hate. Outside Buildings and Boxy Auto-tiles.

    You just gotta git gud. It is the "Dark Souls," of mapping.

    Animations that seem perfectly fine for battle are often "too fast" on my maps. -_-" I need a "slow animation down" feature for RPG Maker.

    That's not that much of an extra work tho, copy, paste, and then you duplicate each frame. Unless you have 300 frames long animations, that's not too bad, is it?
    In my engine I solved all animated thingies via PIXI.extras.AnimatedSprite anyway, because it allowed me much more customization.

    However, you need to do extra work before you can do that as well :D Due to the fact that there are certain things in default MV code that block PIXI.extras.AnimatedSprite.
    The only thing I regret is that I didn't backup my engine, so I'll have to create a new one once again... And I'm so lazy to do so :(

    I managed to make an individual anim fps in Ace, should be doable in MV to. Go make a request?

    Sometimes, I can see the goal line clear as day. Sometimes, it feels so far away. But, watching a game take shape is always engaging.
    I spent my whole week off playing games. Now, It's Saturday and I'm like, "I'll work on my game and cutscenes!" -_-" At least I'm relaxed.
    Got hyped for Fallout 76 on Monday. Just finished a whole playthrough of 4 on "Survival" mode. Is the game supposed to be this easy?

If there's one thing I hate about myself, it's that I procrastinate. Ever since I started looking stuff up on how to properly balance and create armour, weapons and skills; I've let myself down in progress.
So I was at the dentist yesterday and she said,"I'm gonna propose to Dr. Anderson...(Then she paused as she thought what to say). And I said,"I think he is a little old for you." She laughed good naturedly. Then she jabbed sharp things in my mouth for the next 3 hours.
Update on my experiment with uploading my Android games to the Amazon app store: made about $45 in 2 months, but 0 sales for the past 3 weeks. Not sure its worth the effort.
