So one thing I love about RMMZ is that I can run it without having to start up and log into Steam even though I bought it through Steam. Is there any way to do this for RMMV as well?

(I hope this counts as a tech support question. If not, mods feel free to put it where it belongs)

If you’re on a Mac (like myself), the answer is a hard no.

If you’re on Windows, I’m guessing that because you bought it on Steam that the only way to launch is to launch Steam, which is essentially what Macs have to do to operate the program.

Yeah I should specify that I'm on a PC. Yeah I bought it from Steam (both MV and MZ) and while I can start MZ without first starting Steam, the same isn't true of MV. At least, not unless there's some trick to get around that.

I guess I just hate feeling like I have to go invisible so that I can dodge gaming requests, chat, etc when I want to get work done.

I think you can set your profile to offline mode, log out of the 'friends' feature in steam, and also use steam in offline mode? You can also use a minimal version of steam that doesn't take up as much mem.

I figured it was about time to update the battle sprite for one of my characters. The old one was the first time I ever drew a battle sprite, and filled with lines that shouldn't be there. So far, the new one is cleaner.

This was supposed to become her neutral talking stance, but now i just feel like she looks a little puzzled :D
I'm also open for any name suggestions, as i seriously suck at those. In my notes everything is just THE CITY or THAT GUY and THIS PRIESTESS or whatever :D

It’s definitely a great day to fit in some time for me to play no mans sky on PS4

First concept art of one of our main characters love interests who might turn evil depending on her decisions. Or become king of the world. Or marry her. Maybe even everything at once.
