    Sick to death of scurrying around like an adolescent rodent, frantically searching for some crumb of sustenance with this RM thing.
     
    I have a ton of game ideas, and I work on them all, because an idea neglected is an idea wasted. You've got to flesh out an idea, even if you don't throw everything behind it until it's done.
     
    I have vaults full of ideas and stories from my role playing days, not counting the things I've created for RM. But there is one story that stands tall above the others.
     
    Around eight years ago I went back to my roots as a story teller. I came up with a tribute to Squaresoft and Final Fantasy. An epic, emotional odyssey that embodies my love and admiration for that brand of story telling and world creation that defined the greatest decade of the genre.
     
    It's now or never, because this RM is a black hole that devours people's time giving nothing back to show for it. And I'm so over it.

    It's really the only thing I want to do. It's the future of casual gaming, they end up creating their own societies and ethos among the player base, and they can generate a ton of money over an extended period of time.
     
    I have many ideas and I'm going to start drafting an outline for a game.

    Got the leg sections done on a sprinting template for LL sprites. I need to modify the arms a bit, which is the trickiest part. The front and reverse frames seems okay for a striding motion, but the sides look too relaxed.

    I don't even need to test run it to tell they'll look stiff from the side.
     
    Making outfits will be a bit tricky, I wish the arms didn't need so much editing because that would make it so much easier to do them. The feet rotate 90 degree counter clockwise pretty quickly and easily. Sprinting capability is something I have wanted for loose leafs. The higher level of detail makes it seem weird when they start power walking around maps.

    So many hot button issues on my mind lately. The type of shit it's just risky to bring up, because people are so easily offended today. It's almost become a social right to be triggered as fuck and champion your cause as loudly, and judgmentally as humanly possible.
     
    But what's got me beside myself this month is the movement to make Santa gender neutral with a new name. It's gone too far and not only that, but it's become trapped in a cycle of hypocrisy. I don't think the LGBTQ+ movement ever intended to start kinda feeling like a fascist regime, buuuut, here we are. It's amazing to me how fast the tone of the conversation could go from, "Equality for all, judgement for none!" to, "Get on board, or burn alive, bigot!"
     
    How about we make Santa Race neutral?
    How about Santa having multiple ethnicities depending on nation, region, or personal taste? Wouldn't it be easier to say Santa can touch his rosy snout, wink twice and look whatever way he wants to visit kids from all over the world, than to say what you know about Christmas lore no longer exists; Gender no longer exists?

    I thought of a fun plot twist: What if there was a character who said they didn't know who they are, so everyone assumes they lost their memories, but they didn't and never actually said that. They instead decided to throw away their old identity because they ended up not liking who they became. They knew who they were, just not who they are.
     
    Doubt I will ever use this in anything though.

    I was an admin on a Facebook group a little while back, and I took a non-power trip, fair, honest, assertive and good listener approach, which while it did well to keep me honest, it also made me a target for the other admins who wanted me to conform to whatever BS standards they wanted, which wasn't going to happen, at all.

    The whole 'shoot first, ask questions later if ever' mentality, is the kind of crap that gets people in trouble offline, and it most certainly makes all who go that way look like an absolute jerkwad.
    There is no reward for honesty except everyone makes you their patsy, that's how this society is. Meh.

    New Earthbound file. At the Lab beneath Stonehenge in Winters. I strongly dislike this particular portion of the game, because although the entire party is reunited for the final time, Poo's only weapon is dropped here by Super Starmen. With a 1 in 128 chance of dropping the Sword of Kings, it can take a very long time to get the damn thing and move on unless you can stomach his puny unarmed attacks. I personally can't, and he doesn't have the PP to sustain psi attacks even on a mid-term basis. I don't think I've ever left Winters without the SoK, but this time it feels extra dreadful and futile.
     
    I'm using save states right now to try to farm the same Starman death until I get it.

    There is so much you can do with that decorating script. I was thinking about the many things aside from decorating a place that it can be used for. One thing was making the objects ABS enemies, Bosses, save points, treasure chests, and creating a "training" dungeon mode for an ABS game.
     
    Along that line of thought, you might be able to do a mini game that's like a combo of FF7's hill defense game, and something like Ogre Battle where contact of moving units causes battle between groups of no-name soldiers, perhaps main characters lead units, whatever.
     
    It ends up being a very powerful tool when you look at it as a means for the players to place functioning events on the map.

It's a combination of the musical score, and seeing all of these names, wondering how each of them must have felt watching them for the first time.

    So, even the paywall hype train has hit the RM community.

    I mean, the patreon garbage kind of paywall. Yanfly, you've really sunk down to the levels of the likes of dirty devs and asset flippers, but I guess it doesn't surprise me. It's either money or nothing. You know what that actually is? Greed.

    You could of put your plugins on Steam or somewhere where purchase would be much easier, but no, you gave the underprivileged the finger instead with sleazy Patreon.

    The Orwellian nightmare continues...

    Yeah, I should be active more, here and elsewhere, but as of late, crap like the thing ThatOneNPC found is flooding the online and offline society, and frankly, I don't blame them one bit for taking that step in moving on.

    I would too if, well, it would matter, and it really wouldn't. I still have no damn closure on a number of things, including my IP address being hacked and/or spoofed which led to some pretty stupid nonsense that I have no way of recovering from, short of cheating in some fashion (I wouldn't know what that would look like either). Probably wouldn't of happened at all if I had things like far better hardware, and access to internet safety software or whatever else, but that is one of those things I will not have unless I get donations and such.

    Yeah, about Epstein: publicly, definitely dead, but like Ian Watkins, is definitely still around...living a comfortable lifestyle in wait for the NWO that isn't going to come...

    I'm still making gamedev progress, but I'm struggling with this and that...

    South Central Kansas has some strong storms going on, like as I type this.
    Two of these storms have been tornadic, and both storms are likely headed in my general direction. I already hear rumbles of thunder in the distance. There is no tornado/fallout shelter within a hundred foot sprint short of any of the houses across the street (unlikely shelter), so if the worst comes to worst, this may very well be my last post because these apartment buildings won't withstand tornadic winds, and even if I survive, my equipment will likely be damaged or taken by the storm.
    I mean, if I do survive, it'll be a LONG F*CKING TIME before I have internet access let alone hardware of my own.
    That's what happens when you're on disability payments.
    So, anyway, it's been fun.
