    I'm glad that I know of the resource blacklist. I wish I would of known about it long ago.

    Even still, there's one problem; where can I find substitutions for the icons? I looked and found squat.

    But yeah...just me prattling on...

    Problems with time travel in story telling? It never holds up to even elementary questioning, because it's physically impossible. Time doesn't actually exist. The observable phenomenon we have dubbed time is a side effect of the degree with which space has been curved by the mass of an object suspended in it, or gravity. Nothing more. That's what relativity really is, not how gravity modifies the setting of how time passes by each celestial object. Not some time-space fabric or energy storing the memory of the past and computing the possibilities of the future. The only thing that has ever, or will ever exist, anywhere in the universe, is the present.
     
    Problems with these problems? I simply 😍LOVE😍 time travel in story telling. I mean it is so romantic, so adventurous, wonderous, mysterious. I can't leave it alone. I can't stop trying to make it work.
     
    Most recently it's forced me to take a long hard look at the nature of the Time Stream in my FF tribute lore, as well as the involvement of time travel and temporal mechanics within that canon.

    So an MMO is a massive undertaking requiring a lot of stuff that I just cannot do alone. Even with a bit of IT and coding/business support (which I have), it's still a behemoth task.
     
    Meantime I'm doing the Zelda-like I have been wanting to do for some time. I'm going to use a very limited amount of graphical resources and scripts, and try to make something of a showcase game for practice and the beginning of a portfolio for recruiting help with an MMO.

    So many things to sort out and decide on for an MMO.
     
    Does the world really need yet another cracker jack box Medieval Fantasy MMO? Whether it's a good VXA MMO or not? I'm just not so sure anymore, and I've always wanted to do a zombie mmo. The main obstacle right now is starting from square one on resources to make sure everything in the VXO folders is 100% cleared for commercial use.
     
    Based on the resources I'm able to gather, I'll be able to decide what the best course of action is. Sometimes I want artistic skill more than I want coding skill.

    I know I jump and leap around a lot in terms of project interest, but I mainly get an idea, and foster it a bit before it dissipates into the brain fog. Lightly investigate how viable it is with Ace, then shelf it.   Last year I toyed with the concept of doing an E-Sport prototype (Non-MMO, hopefully 2P at best, somehow, someway) with Ace. The last few days I made some breakthroughs and want to forge ahead more.   I'm still floating multiple concepts for a system, but I'm starting with inspiration from FFX's Blitz Ball. Turn based system whereby players can move within stat-defined limitations and preform actions. I'm using inspiration from the FF Tactics-style script to theory craft the actual engine. It may seem slow and dry for an actual E-Sport game in your mind's eye, and I agree, but I'm still theory crafting and floating multiple ideas.   I also thought about about somehow jerry rigging one of the MMO engines to make the E-SPort game have more depth than windows and game fields/arenas. But mainly to create a live action E-sport where players have skills and stats to build up like strife jukes, dodge spins, stiff arms, tackles, passes, shot, steals, etc. That's more mainstreamy, but high end as well.

    Well, I've been plugging away here and there at gamedev.

    I've run into a couple coding issues, one of them is a weird one that I thought I had dealt with a long time ago and when I look at the syntax, the syntax does not seem to be inconsistent in any way, so I don't know what the deal is, but I do know that it makes it so that the third and fourth party members cannot equip weapons in the second weapon slot if nothing is in the first weapon slot (some odd nilclass error that I cannot figure out). The other issue lies in the Yanfly equip screen, and changing the stats so that TP, Attack Speed, and the two XStats also show, but I can't get that to work at all. I managed to get only parts of that drawn.

    Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a deep love for super hero comics. I recently found and old mmo that's basically like DCEU, only with a way better character creation engine (I mean it is one of the best, most vast avatar editors I have ever found). I made one of my RPC from my Mythic Universe of heroes and villains. And I made a Champions Online Original.
     
    So recently I thought about making a Loose Leaf sprite version of them. I only made a single frame for each, but they came out nice. This little experiment surprised me, and has improved my confidence and boldness when tinkering with parts.

    Finding a game I could play as Tempest (more or less) in was amazing, but now having a Loose Leaf version of his CO variant is just cute as hell. Even though BT is a ruthless boogeyman, that LL still castrates him just a bit. XD

    With this new/current Legend of Mana file, I am going for the Bejeweled City, the lost city of the Jumi, and the final location of the Jumi arc.
     
    It is one of the only things in the game I have never been able to do. I didn't even know it existed until last year (not a fan of looking things up online). I never finished the Jumi arc. Ever. I always said, "Next new game plus."

    This time I will finish that arc and unlock that city.

    I want to highly recommend that you play some LoM before the rerelease, simply to brush up and master the finer points. The smithing can feel so damn murky because of the way it's set up, but it actually does have a very structured system. Reading parts of guides such as this, by MMjarra:
     
     
    really help with that lightbulb moment where you go, "Ohhh, and begin to understand what item is triggering pushes, and that there is an invisible slot that holds the last item tempered in. It's such a complex, beautiful system that, like many of Square's gems in that era, was majorly underappreciate due to westerners rooting their mentality in the initial frustration, leaning on the "broken mess" card.
     
    EDIT: Also for combat, I have some weapon recommendations.
     
    The Knuckles allow you to move around very quickly, but due to the core issues in the system, range can make hit boxes elusive.
     
    The Bow is great but requires a lot of tempering and good ability selections to help control the field (jumps and vaults, defensive lunge, etc). It can be very good because you feel the core issues much less and it helps you master aiming very, very quickly.
     
    The Spear is a very balanced weapon with beautiful range, speed, and area damage. Mobility is a bit nurfed but it's not too bad.
     
    These may be good to start a file.
     
    My advice is to spend your vigin New Game saving all food, raw materials, and secondary materials. Hoard it all. Hunt your eggs, gather the monsters you want and store them at lvl 1. Bring your default Rabbite around and feed it meats you loot in battle. You will sell it later for lots of money o don't worry if you ruin it's stats with odd meat and stuff. Rabbites aren't worth wasting any good food.
     
    On your 2nd (or 3rd/4th) NG+, when you have so much stockpiled resources that you can efficiently raise a good monster on a strict diet, forge an armor with a desired enchantment, build a good golem, buff a weapon's power, etc, begin doing all of this.
     
    YOu will waste a ton of resources if you pick away and prolong coming into your different assets at a sufficient pace, or even muck them up. LoM is all about the replay. That's why I don't mind the quest system and collecting them all for Lil Cactus.

    I've resolved to give each combat discipline it's own primary damage modifier stat. Hand to hand has Strength, magic has Arcane, melee weapons have Technique, and I am deciding on one for firearms. The main contenders right now are Aim, Accuracy, Focus and Dexterity.

    I've taken my first stabby-stabby at custom preset buildings. This is a special one because it's heavily based on the video rental store from my home town.
     
    This is where I first rented Earthbound, Xnogears, FF6, FF7 Suikoden 1 & 2, and so many more. And not only games, but movies as well, as I am a cinephile first and foremost.
     

     
    This is for a special project I am working on using characters loosely based on myself and my best friend, who used to rent games with me here at least three times a week.
     
    This project will provide me with some generalized experience in making a complete game with Ace, and showcase some of talents with regards to plot, characters, and development of them both.
