I made an RPG Discord bot and it FINALLY got accepted on top.gg and is already trending!! <3
1st of March 2014 I joined and it has been a great experience for 6 whole years. The only thing I can say is a huge thank you to ALL members of this forum.

Were you polite in how you talked to her? I've heard she supposedly is helping people there as long as the issue isn't user error.

you know, i seen that plugin a while back and thought it was a funky concept ~ using common events to handle everything. was actually thinking of investing in it myself just to play around with it. So happy i didnt with all the complaints ive seen :/

I've actually considered eventing a card system, just to see if it can be done.
Just finished making a character selector at the beginning of the game that allows the player to pick gender and skin tone. I couldn't be more pleased.

Yes. Yes it is. A bit stressful to input the strategem commands and with friendly fire on, but a fun challenge. Even though I've mostly used the laser-shotgun thing with friends, I'd wanna try other weapons by myself, if I had the game. The plasma pistol from one of the DLCs sounds up my alley.

@RachelTheSeeker I'm usoing the laser shotgun thing too!. xD It's the easiest gun to use, I just end up without ammo when using the other guns. lol. I'm enjoying using that, the flamethrower, and a flamethrower pistol.
If there's one thing I hate about myself, it's that I procrastinate. Ever since I started looking stuff up on how to properly balance and create armour, weapons and skills; I've let myself down in progress.

Well, ain't we all, right? It happens to a lot of us. What matters is that you caught it. And hey, maybe you've learned something useful about balancing in the meantime? Planning might not be starting the damn game but it'll give you a boost when you do. Might save or cut down on needed revisions later on.

I wish I did learn something but I hadn't haha. At least I managed to get some brainstorming going about furthering the story, but I definitely need to find some tutorials on skills, damage formulas and the like.
So I was at the dentist yesterday and she said,"I'm gonna propose to Dr. Anderson...(Then she paused as she thought what to say). And I said,"I think he is a little old for you." She laughed good naturedly. Then she jabbed sharp things in my mouth for the next 3 hours.

Three hours???

From 1:30 to 4:30. Well, technically, there was a bit of standing around as she waited for the dr to check her work and ask for advice, etc. Then we had to wait around till the x-ray room was available. I also had 60-year-old Dr. Anderson digging around in my mouth like his previous job was at a mortuary. Pulling on the side of my mouth like he was trying to make me look like the joker.
Update on my experiment with uploading my Android games to the Amazon app store: made about $45 in 2 months, but 0 sales for the past 3 weeks. Not sure its worth the effort.

Yeah... Only Google Play and iTunes seem worth the effort. Everything else is pretty small time. Probably only 5% the audience.

@NinjaKittyProductions very little, but my primary income sources are Steam and Google Play. I wanted to try Amazon since it wasn't difficult to set up on. It's sort of like Itch in a sense that, yeah, you can make some money from it but there's effort involved that could be put toward more productive things.

I used to bleed from down there frequently. Turned out I had a decent sized abscess. Caused a lot of pain, and made it impossible to sit normally. Eventually had surgery to drain it. Had to keep the wound open afterwards so as to prevent the body from healing improperly (skin first) and forming another abscess. What caused it? Likely an ingrown hair. You never asked for this, but now you know. :p
Caught a guy trying to break into our house today. Appearantly he intended to burgle our neighbor (a 94yo widow) but picked the wrong house. Faced with two angry males he was quick to give up without a fight...
I just joined the club of nerds making their own Excel-Sheets to calculate HP / MP / EXP.. parameter curves
TheoAllen

Question: do you plan to load the sheet in-game or not? (i.e, exclusively for calculating)

@TheoAllen maybe a little Python script which transfers my Excel into the RMMV JSON format so I don't have to copy manually. But nothing special like reading during Runtime.

That's a whole new level of nerd! Closest thing I've done is using spreadsheets for tiered equips (and AD&D monster stats, but those don't count).

If I recorded while I created (what I think is) a small plugin, would you be interested enough in the process to watch it?
TheoAllen
TheoAllen
It is a solid reference if it has a commentary. If not, probably just an entertainment video. The question is which purpose?

Also in gm you code from scratch, unlike RM which u copy paste and edit. So if u want it to be like in gm, probably code a custom scene would be better.

Not sure I would personally but I could see many others being interested in the development process. Give it a shot!

It would not be a coding tutorial, just an over-the-shoulder look at how I pull something together. With commentary, bugs and troubleshooting, and with any luck, a working plugin at the end :)
Hey people! What do you think about a core plugin? This will save some lines of code that I repeatedly use in all my plugins...
TheoAllen
TheoAllen
People usually hate core plugins because in the previous attempt the "core" engine means changing the default code of RM instead of a collection of functions that you repeatedly use it. And thus, this "core" engine tends to be blamed for incompatibility and people avoid it. u probably need to rebrand it using a different term as long as you don't change any default codes.

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of them. Nothing worse than needing some huge game altering core plugin just to use a small plugin from that author. Worse yet, core plugins like to fight. So if all of your plugins require a core plugin that fights with another core plugin, if that one's more important than yours, all of your plugins get the boot.

However if you're not using a core plugin, then the one incompatibility doesn't propagate through all of your plugins. So I would be able to simply remove an offending plugin, be it yours or theirs and then I could still keep your other ones.

Wondering if I should make my enemies scale in my non-linear rpg. I'm leaning towards yes, but I don't want to use Yanfly's plugin...

If you search through the section 'Game Mechanics Design', you will find a number of discussions about scaling enemies, the pros and cons, balancing issues etc. Might be worth your time to browse through them.
