Blog Entry #2 - Chapter Selection, Mapping, and Characters

Greetings lower lifeforms! Welcome to the second entry of the Wish to the Stars development blog. Today, we will be going over some things I've been doing in chapter 1.     First off: We have a functioning chapter selection area!   Yes. We have chapter selection. There will be 11 chapters, most will have 2 parts to it. One where you play as the character Aiden, and another where you play as the character Aria.   Some of you may be wondering why I decided to do a map instead of pictures for selecting the chapters. Well, the main reasons is because I am not very talented at drawing pictures, which would have led to very boring and uninspiring chapter images and a map made for a more interesting way of navigating.   The other reason is because I really like Fable 3... Yes. I know what you are thinking. Feel free to ostracize me. I won't complain. Anyway. I really like the idea of all of the menus being abstracted out and having everything from the menus being put into an interactive environment. Now, Fable 3 managed to make it a massive chore more then anything fun since they literally abstracted almost every single menu out of the game. I'm only doing this for the chapter selection area.   I also like the chapter selection in the game Sacred Tears TRUE (http://store.steampowered.com/app/316840/), which is similar to this. So, I'm basically stealing from other, probably better, games.   Anyway. The chapter selection will allow you to go to any unlocked chapter and play through it at whatever level the characters currently are, along with what equipment and money they have. Being certain levels will unlock new events and such in previous chapter. This is meant to give the player as much freedom as possible when going through the game and to allow them to play through whatever chapters they feel like without feeling like they have to find everything right as they are going through them or else they will have to restart the game or load a save.   The next thing on the list: Mapping!   The first town area of the game is complete! The village of Ander. Which is the home of the two main characters. It has six sections to it: The Grove, Village Center, Waterfalls, The Eastern Side, The Farms, and the Brody Homestead. All of which will be accessible during both sides of chapter 1.   There really isn't anything else to say.   And now the last thing on our list is: Characters!   Names, nick-names, descriptions, and some side notes on every character has been entered into the database. Aiden and Aria's class information has been entered into the database as well and are currently under going some testing. The rest of the character's class information will be entered at a later point as well. Here is a current status on all of them:   Aiden: Names, ENTERED. Description: ENTERED. Class: TESTING. Aria: Names, ENTERED. Description: ENTERED. Class: TESTING. Cavall: Names, ENTERED. Description: ENTERED. Class: NO PROGRESS.   Marcus: Names, ENTERED. Description: ENTERED. Class: NO PROGRESS.   Galahad: Names, ENTERED. Description: ENTERED. Class: NO PROGRESS.   Eden: Names, ENTERED. Description: ENTERED. Class: NO PROGRESS.   Anyway, There really isn't much else to say since not much of the story has been put in yet, outside of a small intro scene, so I will leave you guys off with the percentage completion of each chapter.   Chapter completion percentages. -Chapter 1 completion: %30 -Chapter 2 completion: %0 -Chapter 3 completion: %0 -Chapter 4 completion: %0 -Chapter 5 completion: %0 -Chapter 6 completion: %0 -Chapter 7 completion: %0 -Chapter 8 completion: %0 -Chapter 9 completion: %0 -Chapter 10 completion: %0 -Chapter 11 completion: %0   Have a good day everyone.   -LS

Wish to the Stars Dev Blog #1

Hello everyone. Through most of last month I had a poll up for people to choose the top 4 characters to be in my MV project. Well. Now that I have MV, and have had time to get familiar with it, I have finally gotten around to starting the project. This blog will be either bi-weekly, or monthly as a way to keep you guys up to date on the progress of the project. I don't really have much to say for this entry, so I'll just leave a completion percentage for each chapter. Chapter completion percentages. -Chapter 1 completion: %10 -Chapter 2 completion: %0 -Chapter 3 completion: %0 -Chapter 4 completion: %0 -Chapter 5 completion: %0 -Chapter 6 completion: %0 -Chapter 7 completion: %0 -Chapter 8 completion: %0 -Chapter 9 completion: %0 -Chapter 10 completion: %0 -Chapter 11 completion: %0 Anyway. Good day to you all, and I look forward to working on the project.
