I have made up a few mockups for my sim game. The first one is the HUD. I have three that I am toying with and I am not sure which is the best one to use.
Next up, I have the chibi maker mockup.
You do not need to have a coat of arms if you do not want it. The red circles are things required and the white circles are optional.
Please feel free to comment on what you like, dislike, think I should change, etc. The clothes will probably be set to one whole outfit like the Sims 1 was. This is due to the fact that the chibis are small and I'm not sure how much having separate shirts, bottoms, and shoes will do. If you wish to have them separate, please let me know and I will go ahead and try to make them separate.
You can make suggestions on this journal, or you can do so at my website. I will also be more than happy to answer any questions you have about the game as well.
At my website, I have made a post that shows a peak at the early versions of the game. I am needing as much feedback as I can for what you would like in a sim game and if the file size matters to you. If it does matter, please let me know the max size you are willing to download.
Also note that I may end up not using the rpg maker RTP and will end up using custom sprites and tile sets depending on how ambitious the project is and how much of a demand there is of it.
At this current moment, I will not have the option to make custom chibis in the game unless you really want to have that feature. The only reason I'm not thinking about doing it is because I'm worried about the file size.
I've now opened up a wordpress site thanks to the suggestion of THEAQIB.
I've posted all my tutorials and resources there (not much yet) so that it's easy to find them all. I also posted up about the Construction and Build project that I'm working on and am will to take any suggestions on what to add to the game or what would be the perfect simulation/sims game to you.
Feel free to poke around and don't feel shy about posting comments. If you're confused on a tutorial or need to ask a question, I'll answer them to the best of my abilities.
For the game, I currently have 8 life stages the character can go through. I also changed pregnancy to last 2 months, but I don't mind changing it if people want it more realistic.
I don't have any screenshots yet because I've only done event systems and I can't get the screen recorders to work. I tried Camtasia studio, but the audio doesn't want to work for me.
I'm still heavily thinking about the items changing each era, but I'm a bit nervous about how big the file size will become due to all the resources for that.
