  • Many folks lately have lamented bad writing in RM games. Yet there are few Classified/trade options for writing/editing. Wondering if enough folks would find it useful if "someone" (it's me) opened a shop?

    @woootbm bingo. Many devs consider their idea their "baby" and lack the self-awareness to see their writing requires help.

    @ATT_Turan I think some devs underestimate how much unclear writing undermines multiple game aspects.

    @CG-Tespy I have proven writing/marketing skill, but nothing game-specific. One challenge is conveying that spellcheck isn't enough.

    You have a good point, you might be the only person selling their righting skills to the RPG maker community who also beat that intense game at the age of 8 ;)

    You're right, tumsterfest, and there's also things like the importance of connotations and context-based terminology-use. The two of us know that, of course, but many devs sadly don't... Even if they already hit the big one-eight

    I think the word you're looking for, is cougar.

    Well, she's only 24, so ...

    Although in her primitive and dangerous world, 24 might be closer to middle age. Haha.
    Took a crack at making an XP asset blend in better with MZ. ... It kinda works?

    For pixel art it is select by color for sure - since that usually just gets what I need and worst case I can substract with the other select methods what I don't want.

    For blur and smudge I just went with the default ones here, I have no favourites, it depends on what I wanna do.

    I mean select by color the one brightest shade of the trunk, using the color picker to pick up the lightest I want from my reference and using the bucket to replace it in the trunk. Rince and repeat until your tree trunk has the exact color ramp as the reference.

    It took almost a week, but here we are:

    Watching your recruitment thread sit atop the channel for 2 straight weeks with no new interest: 50% hilarious, 49% disheartening, 1% "h8 you all plz make my game 4 me lol"
    When you start recoloring your character because lawsuits are expensive:

    I'm open to bringing on another person to work on my game for free ... or paid ... or via skill trade ... where do I post that without being swatted lightly across the fanny?

    Yeah, it just seemed redundant/spammy to post something in both sections. I wasn't sure if there was a preference one way or the other if I wanted to make a catch-all invitation that covers both free and paid (and trade).

    Seems like Project Recruitment might be the way to go until I have a very specific request, like you said.

    Yeah usually here paid needs to be specific like make me this sprite, or this music. I've not seen it used for general hiring.

    Good to know; thanks!
    Can I ... just ... take stuff from the Resource Request threads? Or are those special gifts only meant for one person?

    I feel like I just invited myself to someone's party or asked how much money they make.
    Avery

    I guess that depends. I usually state that the stuff I made goes under my terms and later post them in my resource threads anyways (if I don't forget).

    Ironically, I think it was your bow weapon that finally prompted me to ask this after a year of wondering, @Avery. Haha. Perhaps double-ironic because my main character's name is Avery?

    Stupid plan; Gather resources from different artists, one artist for each important character, name the characters after the artist (probably using anagrams). It can't possibly go wrong!
