I need a plugin or a method to make the game check if any files are missing when game is opened.


If there is any missing file, it would begin to download it automaticaly. It's something like (or it is a) patcher.


I think that this kind of plugin would make mobile developers life easier.

You can't really do that except on desktop export. Mobile devices are restrictive by nature, they don't have a lot of buttons or screen space. We can't really download and write data for your game to the device like that, you need it to be installed through the app store for your device.

I mean something like unity's AssetBundles , or i think is called "incremental patch system" .


There are some games on playstore which is actually an updater, and when you start it, it will start downloading your files, or "apk expansion file". 


App store has a size limit, but if you have this system, you will be able to upload on store a file that is under 100mb and the rest will be downloaded automaticaly.

A side story is almost getting into the next stage. Almost everything in this game has real-life references.

Everyday life is full of absurdity. This is just a reflection.
TFW you discover how the script batching works in VNMaker... after you've had the program for almost 3 years.

Writes that the characters have to climb a mountain.

Realized that I have to draw six sets of models where characters are climbing.

At least I know how to draw something. :)
I'm currently scratching my head on how to design plains. What do I even put in plains? Some trees (but not too many or it turns into a forest)? Grass? A few bushes? That's a bit dull.
I'm looking for tutorials but Google didn't seem to find much (or maybe I have the wrong keywords). I don't know how to map plains and I don't know how to learn.
