    I bet the FFVII Remake is gonna be disappointing actually. The original FFVII is a special kind of insane that only 90s Squaresoft seemed able to produce. I think they play it too safe nowadays to really pull off what made FFVII truly great. All I know is, they better not have cut the part where Cloud crossdresses. :P

    @Arrpeegeemaker Don't go bringing the lizard people into this, they are blamed for enough crap. Okay so maybe one or two famous people are secretly lizard people. Does that mean they actually did anything wrong? Maybe they are just hiding because humans freak out about everything so much. Also, stop blaming aliens for abducting humans all the time! It was obviously really us fairies the whole time, and we should get the proper credit! :3
     
    Also: Funny how as big of a deal people make about hackers and terrorists, squirrels were the real threat the whole time.  Gotta sympathize with squirrels a bit though. I mean, it's pretty obvious why they are trying so hard to destroy human civilization. Human civilization is pretty awful sometimes! Always chasing them away from eating all the birdseed... Plus squirrels are cute! Still I don't condone squirrel terrorism. I think killing yourself to take out parts of the electric grid is going a little too far. :3
     
    @Animebryan Besides, Cait Sith is a remarkably attractive man controlling a kitty cat robot, not a kitty cat controlling a remarkably attractive man robot. ... Except I think there was part of one of the spin off games where the remarkably attractive man was controlling a kitty cat robot who was controlling a remarkably attractive man robot? Also Cait Sith seems to have spoken to Reeve a few times as if they weren't the same person? So... I donno! *shrugs*

    What? People think that? That's crazy! Your avatar is even a kitty cat, so why would people think you are a squirrel? Not that there is anything wrong with squirrels mind you. Not all of them are crazy terrorists!

    How is firefox? It's gotten a lot faster in the last few years I hear.
     
    Also I am pretty sure I saw experiments where they installed windows 10 on really old hardware and it ran fine, but maybe not on every computer. Also, Ubuntu or some other linux distro is always an option. You may need to set up a windows virtual box to run RPG Maker VX Ace, but that really isn't too hard I don't think. Anyway it's been a while since I used linux so maybe it runs with wine now?

    That's probobly too much for the player to really handle all at once... do you have that divided up into different menus? You could have a menu just for equipping weapons, one for clothing, and one for everything else. That would make te equip scene less bloated I think...

    Aww shucks... Really I should check to see if it looks good animated though, I kinda was sleepy after finishing it so I didn't test it out in game yet. I am sure it will look fine but sometimes there are alignment issues you only really spot in motion.
     
    @PhoenixSoul Hehe, did you also look at the eyes? It's hard to see without zooming in but I made the eyes use an autumn-themed gradient of colors. :3
     
    Fun Fact: I basically restricted myself to using the same palette all VX Ace's RTP sprites are in, so the colors probobly aren't as smooth as it could be, but I think it really fits in with rtp sprites.
     
    Fun Fact 2: I obviously used the rtp's Spiritual.png as a base for a lot of it, but what might not be as obvious is that I used a lot of parts from the fire lady as well as the fairy. :3 I originally wanted to do a fire sprite with flame wings, and I used parts of the fire lady's hair for the wings, but it became more and more butterfly-like as I worked on it, and making the hair the same fire-like color kinda muddled the affect. So I made an autumn sprite instead! I already have a spring and winter sprite in my game, so next I guess I need a summer sprite!
     
    Edit: Yeah the side animation isn't very good. I think I should also get rid of the random embers I took from the fire lady which are mostly just left over form when I wanted to make it a fire sprite anyway.

    I think I have like 8 or something, though really the way I am doing equips right now doesn't rely on the idea of equip slots too much since what slot an item is in is mostly irrelevant. Maybe I could get rid of a max number of slots even. I use a script I made ages ago that restricts what the player can equip based on what they have on so the player can't equip like 20 pieces of armor or something without each item type needing their own slot.

    Honestly I think the "try to be cute by constantly referring to themselves in the third person" thing is pretty silly. I am not sure where that came from (I think it's a result of weird Japanese translation conventions), but it's... really kinda not. I mean, I wouldn't go as far to say it's uncute, it doesn't ruin cute characters for me or anything. It just kinda confuses me. Maybe it's cute because it's silly? I donno.
     
    Then why do I refer to myself in the third person sometimes? Because silly, the there are different layers of objective and subjective existence both real and unreal that makes up the Kayzee-pattren. Keyzee is me, but also a story that I tell, but also a story you tell of a story I tell.

    Yeah most of my weapons will probobly be fantasy-themed, though I will have at least a few silly weapons too. Hehe, I even have a few Katanas in my game, most being the cheap imitation kind otakus like to own. And one being a replica of one that was inexplicably wielded by a Norse god.
     
    Right now my weapon categories are staves, daggers, swords, and spears, but I may change that. Honestly might get rid of staves and/or make them into a type of item instead. Usable staff/wand items are pretty common in roguelikes after all.
     
    As for armor, I don't actually have that much right now, and most of what I do have is different types of clothing, capes and boots. There is only one actual piece of 'armor' in the game right now and it's kind of designed to be a bit bulky and cumbersome to use. I do have magic robes and a witch hat though. :3
     
    Another thing I need to add is more transformations! I keep forgetting about that.

    Wow,  \i[\v[#]] actually works! I didn't think it would at first glance, but it totally does! It should work for any text that is drawn with draw_text_ex, which I think by default is message boxes, item descriptions/help windows, choice lists, scrolling text, the battle log... and I think that's it? Most menus or other windows only use draw_text which doesn't support control codes at all, but most of them manually draw icons or other things anyway.
     
    Here is a fun thing you can do with message control codes: You can technically set a variable to a string using script calls or the set variable script operand. This makes the \v[#] command a LOT more useful if you ask me.
