  • I just had this idea about my bestiary Book. It's divided into 2 parts. A bio about the creatures and a index. I was thinking if the player reads the bio on a creature it would then pop up in the Index.
    Riddle time. How many fingers does a person have?
    TheoAllen

    @ATT_Turan I'm not sure if I get both your statement and question. Like, what do fingers have to do with digits?
    ATT_Turan
    ATT_Turan
    @TheoAllen In English, digit is a word for flexible appendages - toes, fingers and thumbs are all digits. Fingers are defined biologically as digits on the side of the palm, thumbs are digits that oppose the fingers. You said in Indonesian there isn't that difference - do thumbs still have a different word, or do you just have ten of the same word?
    TheoAllen

    @ATT_Turan In that case, "digit" would be translated as "jari" which is often translated back to EN as "fingers" (five of them). There is no separate term for "thumbs" and "fingers". But we do have the names of each of the 5 though.

    If you translate both "digit" and "finger" from EN to ID, both would be translated as "jari" (unless digit as a number, which translated to "angka")
    So I'm redoing the weapon system in my game.. again. Because I'm a perfectionist and I hate myself. And it comes back to demons are weak to a staff weapon. Beating up a bunch of fiery scary demons with a big stick? Doesn't make sense.

    My game is taking longer to make than Doom. And probably just as much. My armor is similar. It goes Copper, Bronze, Iron, Steel, and finally magical. But the magical armor and weapons will have to be found by rare enemies and not pursuable. I just took the lazy route with leather. Light, medium, heavy, Chimera Hide. Dragon Scale.

    Lol, mine's way past the point of Doom, it's reached Duke Nukem Forever territory now. My earliest iteration dates back to 2011, in RPG Maker VX.

    Let's hope it is better than Duke Nukem. No one liked my comment about Duke Nuken on youtube. Where he picks up poop out of the toilet and throws it at a wall. That is the perfect metaphor for this game. I'm still using ace since I started in 2016.
    I should combine some of these creature classes. Especially one with only two creatures types. For Gigantic I have Cyclops and Ogre. There isn't even a giant in the giant class.
    Who wants to solve a riddle from my game?

    @Tanarex is that request itself a riddle?
    .... I mean, if your game is a horror game, the *who* is very much *probably not the main character* as one would imagine what happens to them when they do.

    My brother thinks i's too short and doesn't give enough info. I'll add more if no one can guess it. Send me a PM with your guess unless you want to ruin the chance of anyone else chance by posting it here. The answer is 1 word. 9 letters. Riddle: I am the Intruder. My announcement only comes after I have left.
    So I'm trying to make a bestiary list for all the creature classes but I'm stuck with 2 animals that don't really fit. Rats and bats. One can fly. The other can't. One weak to fire. One weak to wind.

    Bees are definitely not pests tho lmao. You can call them critters, small creatures or whatever.

    Critters and small creatures are too general of a term. It could mean anything.

    Mabey? What is nocturnals for bats and rodents in my experience.
    So I just watched the movie Eternals. Kumail Nanjiani got all bulked up to play this role. And what Super Power did he have for all those muscles? The power of Finger Guns. Yep. Point at things and go pew pew.
    So this flat Earther named Mike Hughes build his own rocket to prove that the Earth was flat. But on liftoff he still had the ladder he climbed up to the rocket laying against it. Needless to say things didn't go as planned.

    @EidolonDreams That's always been my general impression of flat earthers, sure if you look hard enough you might be able to find someone somewhere who genuinely believes in the stuff (maybe) but I just can't buy that this big movement based on the idea that the earth is flat and floating on the back of a giant turtle is really a legitimate thing
    Philosophus Vagus

    that people actually have personal convictions in (I mean it is mostly fake history that people thought earth was flat even in Columbus's day ffs) rather than just a bunch of people making shock jock absurdist content for internet attention. Hell of a thing to die for regardless of whether or not he believed it though
    Tanarex
    Tanarex
    @Philosophus Vagus You can look up Inside a Flat Earth Conference on youtube. Actually, the World on a turtle's back is Hindu mythology, Chinese mythology, Native American mythology, and of course, Disk World. Nothing about Flat Earthers. Back in Columbus's day they already knew the world was round. It was discovered by the ancient Greek Aristotle around 350 BC.
    So the Fire alarm went off 3 times in less then a half hour on my building. But my cat is so use to it going off he doesn't even run behind the couch anymore. He is just like, "This again?"

    Shared fire alarms across the whole building are the bane of my existence in this apartment, lol. It's always some goof that left something in the toaster or something too at like 2am.

    we don't have fire alarms, but I live a couple blocks away from the fire house.
    since it doesn't have a full crew 24/7, they use an air siren to summon the rest of the team, so it sounds at least twice a week.
    it's specially annoying when the wind blows this way.... I hear it like it's right next to me.
    I watched this youtube video of this reporter that went to a Flat Earth Conference. And there was just a whole lot of stupid in one room.

    There are so many hilarious things they believe. They believe they use CGI to fake the moon landing back in 1969. They think NASA runs space programs all over the world. Their proof that the earth is flat is water doesn't stick to a plastic stationary ball of the Earth filled with air. Or a spinning one. Congrats. You proved the existence of beach balls. Does anyone else see any problems with this example?
    gstv87

    you can disprove the flat Earth with one simple statement: if you were standing atop the Christ Redeemer on Brazil, you should have a clear line of sight to the Everest.
    doesn't matter how far apart they are, you should be able to pick up a laser beam or a radio signal.
    you can't.
    therefore, they're not in LOS of one another.
    Tanarex

    You can disprove it with lots of statements. Like the Earth isn't full of air. Water doesn't equal gravity. There is no representation of the moon's gravitation pull, the sun, the star, etc.
    It's always disturbing to me to see my cat eating something off the bathroom floor.
    Maybe I should get rid of the Banish ability in my game. It's a non-elemental spell that doesn't even appear in the magic chart. It's only there because my Elementalist doesn't use light or dark magic. It only effects summoned creatures.

    don't underestimate the "WTF!?" factor of a well-placed Banish.
    if you have a Banish spell that you can't put anywhere, add a villain that uses golems.
    .....but don't add that spell before introducing the golem first!
    Tanarex
    Tanarex
    Golems are ok. They would be classified as an Earth Elemental. Not that I have been able to find one. My characters end up gaining a new spell/skill that a boss is weak to a right before a battle. The thing is my spell caster only has Earthly element spells. Wind, fire, water, etc. So it doesn't make sense for him to have Holy-type magic to banish the undead. Or Dark Magic like a necromancer.

    You could simply change the terminology...say call it deconstruct or something and describe it as interfering with whatever energies allow elementals to animate and returning them to natural order so you have the same ability but that fits better in your magic system.
    I tried typing in what do bulls hate? It asks did you mean what do Bill Gates? Yeah, because that makes so much more sense. My search engine has the I.Q. of a 4-year-old with brain damage.
    I'm trying to figure out a elemental weakness for a minotaur. So far all I know is that he was killed by either a sword, a club or bare hands. Which is no help at all.

    I do have both a cooking skill and a mini-game that uses cooking. And about 54 cooking ingredients pulled from medieval history books about cooking. And I mention something about mystery meat, but no, you can't cook a minotaur.

    @Magenta-Fantasies Actually, bulls can't see the color red. They are aggroed by the matador cape's movement.
    Eweer
    idk how I ended here, but want to say an useless fact: Both the muleta and the capote (official names of the two red capes that are used), are red because it helps mask the ending of the bull fight: the blood splatting into it.
    Does anyone think adding Silver to the elemental chart is a good idea? I've seen people add Metal to the list. But unlike the other ones, there is no magic class that uses Silver. I already have Earth as an element. That could have Silver in it. I also have Banish. Which is a non-Elemental Magic. Then there is Ice. Which is just frozen water. So it's kinda like having Dirt and Rock on a list.
    My brother's b-day was on May 5 and he was whining about a slightly used laptop that I gave him for free. He said it kept crashing. So I told him I won this new lap top and was willing to give it to him. He took one look at it and said, "I don't know how to use that." You think I was giving him a tricorder.

    What kind of idiot refuses a brand new free computer? But he'd rather have a CD from a band made back in 1984. That's worth about $6. So now he gets nothing. Not out of spite. I just kinda forgot he wanted a CD. I haven't seen him since last month. Our mom dropped off his half-eaten cake here. I'll prolly finish that off before he shows up. Told him it was here. So it will be his own fault.

working on an A/V sync system for my game! was NOT expecting the first roadblock to be accessing a variable from a public class!! Computers are so finicky sometimes :kaosigh:
For the first real time since my game's inception I found myself actually having fun playing around with my party's skills while testing out some battles! So much so, that I actually forgot what I was doing for a minute and had to force myself to move on to the next thing! :guffaw:

That's got to be a good sign considering it only has place holder animations, enemy skills, troop comps, etc. right now. Feels good!
