Saw a new vid of AoA on YT earlier today. How long has it been? Years? Don't matter, remember this project as a pretty damn good one. Loved the demo when I played it back in the day. Hope to see more of it!
I like how much effort is put into things. Synopsis, characters and gameplay is well presented, good stuff! Might wanna put the different sections under a spoilertag so people don't need to scroll all day having a look on your post :)
Depends. On my titles that have a 12h+ playtime I have a couple of capitals with maybe 6-8 lesser towns/villages spread around. On a dungeon crawler or smaller project I usually go for a hub area, maybe a couple of checkpoints with merchants and such.
You can make your own states or buffs/debuff in the database if im not mistaken. I'd also take a look at Yanfly's channel on Youtube as they showcase how to make skills (often buffs) familiar from renown games.
My One Map Challenge is nearing completion. I am in the multiple run testing phase atm. This is the map. Beware the minotaurs in the maze area. The female ones are more aggressive. Can you prove to the land of Winchell that a dragon and a human can love each other?
