Greetings from the City of a Hundred Spires, everyone. If you cannot find it on the map, do not despair, it is just the nickname of Prague, the capital city of my homeland, the Czech Republic. :wink: It is the city where I live and work.

I am not a game developer (yet, hopefully), as I have a very demanding full time job in a very different field, and I hope to be able to stay in that job for a decade more or so.

I am just your regular guy, with hobbies like history, reading, 3D Art (I create renders in Daz Studio), video games, etc. I like fantasy and science fiction, and I love Steampunk settings and aesthetics in general.

I would love to be able to create something interactive from the Steampunk themed world I created. I am still not sure if I should go for a Ren'py visual novel, or for something more interactive and giving the feeling of a real game, such as what RPG Maker allows one to create. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Good thing is, I should be able to do the writing and 3D art myself.

I am now recovering from the first look at my brand new RPG Maker MZ, feeling absolutely overwhelmed and totally clueless, as is probably expected. :smile: I am going to have to learn so much, including importing my own creations to the engine, such as my own characters. I am sure it is going to take me quite some time to figure all of that out.

TL;DR version: Hello everyone, from a clueless newbie.

Hello, I love military history, so basically all wars and the short periods between them spent frantically preparing for the next one, as is the human nature. :smile:

Other than that, I love the mid-late Victorian/late Austro-Hungarian and Edwardian eras (generally 1848-1918), partially due to the aesthetics, the fascinating changes to the society, and due to the fact that they are often easily linkable with Steampunk.

Okay so, I'm using this script, right? And it works. If you press :Y a menu should come up allowing you to choose an item to use. Nothing happens. You press :A to open the event options menu and choose "Use an Item"? The item selection menu appears. I have no idea how I set this up or why it works the way it does. Absolutely bizarre.
A woman gave me her number without me even asking for it. Then she left because she had other patients to see.
oh, hey, I forgot about all this!

my old project got abandoned after I started working too much on stuff I'd already worked on - plus, starting to hate the story I wrote for it. Then, well, a lot of serious life **** went down. I ended up moving across the country, cutting off some people, etc. - **** was rough.

So, uh, I guess I'm back for now? Funny how things work.
I'm glad I'm sticking to my guns on having fighting game mechanics in my game, from what I've read, it's not for everyone. but for the most part, I've made it so you don't have to use them motion inputs for attacks if you don't want to.
And my project's just entered the Lunar New Year Sale 2022... Let's see if it reaches it's goal of $ 7,77.
