    ~The Seventh Warrior~

    I like this game's concept. Dark is living in a world with villains, and is competing to conquer the world. I am very curious on who joins his party and why. I am curious about Yoko's motives, and I also like her cute design!
  2. Sorry, if this topic has already been created. I could not find one as I did honestly search for it. As many people know the RPG Maker MV is being released on the Nintendo Switch, PS4 and XBox One. It is the first RPG Maker to be released on home consoles in many years. However, there are many questions about this version. Who is this product for? I am guessing young children. Many PC users such as myself do not need this version of MV. I can only see parents buying this for their kids or someone who does not know anything about the RPG Maker. You may have noticed new heroes and one new villain in the trailer. My only hope is they become available for PC users such as ourselves. They can expand MV's tiny RTP. It's the smallest RTP to my knowledge. There is an interesting comment on the trailer's page on YouTube. A viewer mentions the trailer does not show any features of the engine/game. There is a lot of false advertising. Your heroes/battlers do not appear on full screen. The trailer does not show the battle systems or any features in the engine.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    I like your approach on this subject. A resource pack with different styles to represent different cultures is very much needed. I feel the RTP lacks a variety of styles for games with multiple countries and cultures. The only graphics with different styles are sometimes the hero graphics with characters wearing different clothes and hairstyles from different cultures. I would like a RTP or pack with different cultures such as Country Z knight and Country B knight having different style armors and emblems. I think many RPG Maker games suffers from the lack of culture in different countries in games. We have all seen the same red flag with the gold symbol at every castle. It makes the game look more generic than it should.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    @PhoenixSoul Thanks for letting me know about VX's Wild Steam. I don't recall any other VX pack including any skin tones. I'll take a look when I have time. One thing that I forgot to mention is the lack of racial groups or skin colors put minority developers like myself at a financial disadvantage. It forces us to purchase custom resources or use the not so perfect generator. As a black man, I like creating characters that represent me and friends. The majority of characters in my game are white, but there are other characters with different skin tones to create realism.

    Why So Whitewashed?

    Japan's culture is why we don't see characters from other races or skin tones in the RPG Maker RTP. Japan create characters with skin tones related to Japanese people and Europeans. As PhoenixSoul said Japan's social presentation is the medieval era with Japanese features. White developers and Japanese developers relate to the characters in the RTP. However, I think the RPG Maker can do a much better job at representing other racial groups by offering more skin tones in the RTP. The RPG Maker is a global product, and people from all races use the program. They should consider those users as well because they are customers. One or two battlers with a darker skin tone with features to a different race should be included in a future update. They've released new battlers and graphics at the official store. Are there any new packs with a variety of skin tones or racial groups?
  6. I suggest writing your game's idea and the progress in the game story. This strategy gives directions to you about the flow of your game. I normally create maps and events in order of the game's progress, but there are exceptions when I really want to make a cool dungeon. The best step to take is testing your game when you think it is finished. You want to remove any bugs and typos in your game. Make sure all events work as they should. Also ask a friend to test the game for anything that you may have missed.

    . . hello . .

    Hello! Welcome to the forums! What are your favorite horror games?
  8. I'm happy with the progress that I have made so far! My ice temple is coming along nicely.

    How do players feel about MV's traits?

    Sorry for the confusion! I stopped using XP, VX, and VX ACE after every update. I forgot those systems use the term "features" instead of traits. That's a good idea Kayzee. Switching party members would give a better experience to players. They won't feel trapped in an extremely tough fight. They will either tough it out or reset the game.

    How do I post a Status Update?

    Thank You!
  11. Hello, I haven't posted a status update in many years. I don't see the option to post one. I can reply to other members' updates, but I don't have the option of writing my own..

    Naima's Melody (Demo Available)

    I enjoyed the game play trailer. This game is progressing very nicely. I like this game's graphics because the graphics reminds me of the Legend of Zelda. Good luck with your project!

    How do players feel about MV's traits?

    I think you may have misunderstood me. I am referring to Actor's traits. You can make actors strong or weak against certain elements. You can also make them immune or very vulnerable to status effects.
  14. I was going to make a topic about traits, and realize I need to consider the players' feelings. They are the people who are playing our games. Their opinions on our games matter. We want to give them a positive experience, and an experience to relive by replaying our games. How do players feeling about MV's traits? I am adding traits to my characters to make them unique. It also provides strategies for the player to use. Players will be rewarded or punished for using the wrong party members for a major battle. I think this idea is fine as long as the player has the options to switch party members before those major battles.

    Hearts Like Clockwork (Featuring Kagamine Rin)

    This game looks really good. I like the custom graphics, and they help your game stand out from the competition. Keep it up!
