    Live procedural generation in Rpgmaker

    When creating maps in the rpgmaker engine you have the option to let the engine itself create one for you. I know that it would take an enourmous amount of scripting and tweaking of the engine, but would it be possible to have the game engine generate a map during actual gameplay and place a...

    The Use of Languages in building a world?

    For those of you that are planning or have made large sprawling games, do you plan/planned on putting in different languages for different regions? I'm kinda curious because I haven't seen this really thought of anywhere around. I mean, countries here have different languages within their own...

    Projects set in the same "world"?

    Hey guys and gals as I was trying to brainstorm ideas for my project earlier I realized that most if not all my projects take place inside the same fictitious "world" either, as different events in that worlds history, or as stories and legends in that world (stories within stories if you will)...

    How do you start a game...

    Hey gamers, I thought I would try and get to know some backgrounds on how you all start making a game. Do you start with a basic idea? Do you start with story you have been working on? Do you see something in another video game and think "that looks awesome! I could totally do something like...

    The fishing trip of Byleif/Byleifs fiskefänge (epic icelandic poetry according to the Háttatal)

    This one probably bears some explaining. There is a pretty much untranslatable section of the Prose Edda (the collection of norse mythology gathered and written down by the icelandic Skald Snorri Sturlasson at around 1220) called Hattatal that contains 102 examples of meters used in scaldic...

    (Help!) RMMV Interactive world map.

    My intention is make a Image map and use in game, which the player will not be able to move freely. Basically, the player can travel around the world map by fast travels, and stop in the cities (which will have a normal map). LIKE THIS (Mount&Blade Warband Screnshot) or this: But I have...

    Starting At The End Of The Story

    Hi everyone. I couldn't find if this has been discussed before - and currently I am 'locked-in' to my current project I cannot change it. But I wanted opinions from experienced makers anyway. So, here goes: When I started my project, there was no direction and I allowed my ideas to flow -...

    Constructed language

    So, I've been thinking a bit on this... Would you/what would make you consider constructing a new language for your game? I mean, if you have elves, Sindarin or Quenya might be a bit problematic for a commercial game (licenses et cetera), yet you might want to use some different language for...

    Let's Learn Trivia Together!

    Do you guys like learning fun facts? I like fun facts. The discussion started in another thread. But, pretty much I'm sure all of us get questions in our head that turn into a long string of Google searches. And usually we ask even more questions based on our previous search, and search even...
