Does anyone have a system for naming things? Like People, or monsters, or worlds, or places in general? I am so lacking creativity, and was wondering if anyone had a system. One of my friend's systems, which I hate is rearranging letters from a normal word. For the name of a castle He Said Castle Elsact. (Castle rearranged) Got any others?

VXAce Support forum is for 'How do I do this?' sort of questions.  It's for specific problem-solving, rather than a discursive look at some general aspect of game making.

Therefore

I've moved this thread to General Discussion. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you. 

EDIT

Except that - embarrassingly - it doesn't seem to have moved.  I shall have to get this sorted out.

You can always use an online name generator. If it's for like a medieval or fantasy type of game, Wizard's of the Coast has one here:

I go with names that just come to me, or if I just want one that I like the sound of, I mix letters together until something forms. Then I make sure it's not some sort of foul-meaning word via google search. I started adding the search to the method after seeing a few people put together words without realizing they had a...dirty/terrible meaning. Luckily haven't come up with a foul word myself.  :rock-right:

Super stoked i just finished my first town in my project, by finished i mean i can always add more decorative aesthetics and the NPCs don't talk yet but the mapping is complete and all the important chess pieces are present!
My brain: Hey, I have an idea how to make the transition to the main story quest in The Wastes more natural!
Me: Good!
My brain: You need to remake the hotel you start out in, it's not realistic enough.
Me: Ok... This was unexpected, but I can do it.
My brain: Now make each hotel floor 5 times as large to match the main part. Oh, you also need to make a bunch of new npcs to fill in the space on these maps.
Me: Crap.
Should be able to release Haxe MV/MZ next weekend.
It look that somehow MZ tracks are messed up (for example battle4 is obviously a theme, castle2 is a ship, ship1 is a scene and so on..). Maybe they just named them after with some ambiguity.
is there a script call that return how much turn has passed in battle?
