Lined last of 3 char busts I needed to do ^^
Unfortunately, it is looking less and less likely that this will come to pass. Here's to December, the true month where dreams become reality!I would like to learn more about RPG Maker, become more confident, and complete my first small game this month. Although I am still just getting familiar with the basics at this point.
Oh boy, so much for "shouldn't take me the full month" lol. Though I guess technically that stuff would have been finished already IF it was all I needed to do. I ended up making so many more small changes and improvements throughout the game so far that it took me a couple of weeks to finally get started on what I was SUPPOSED to do this month! Also for some reason my brain has decided to work better this time around, as a lot of changes I made were to how certain events were set up. I looked at them and suddenly I realised how stupidly I had put them together originally, and how easily I could change them and make things more simple, which would allow for editing and adding stuff on to them in the future if needed FAR easier lol.Back again after another few months of... nothing lol. No idea how long I'll last this time, but while I'm in the MOOD for game making, amma try and do as much as possible.
When I left off, I technically had a demo ready. I shared it with a few people, but didn't really get any feedback. Probs why I kinda stopped working on it for so long. So when I finally opened up RPG Maker VX Ace again a couple of days ago, I got to work playing through my game and any time I came across a problem, or found something I could improve, regardless of how small, I'd save the game and immediately add in the change. A couple of hours later and wow, the "demo" I had from a few months ago was so obsolete it wasn't even funny! Now I'm finally in a position to work on my next village, which I already had mapped out from months ago. So my plans for this month are:
Add in story for the next village
Add in side quests for the village
Finish mapping the next area which is just a road to the capital city, but plays into the main story and a side quest in the village.
Map out a cave that plays into a side quest
Finish setting up events for NPC's so some of them leave their houses in the morning (as I have them already set up to walk home at night time).
Technically all of that shouldn't take me the full month, but I'd rather not put together a massive list of stuff only to not get it all done and feel crappy about it haha.
