So a lot has happened this week since I got back from Chicago. I'll get into it, but let's go over what I did in the game.
I've been mainly focused on getting this sand-blasted environment aspect to work, but I'm running into trouble getting the hybrid powers to not be activated. Zero doesn't have these powers; they're all monster-aspected. I just gave Zero all the powers to streamline the environment requirement to get to work. Hybrid powers are stronger than one element powers, so I need to make sure they work right. Of course, if it gets to be too much a hassle, I'll just keep it to one element. I'm 80% completed for this, though, so I think I got it. Once I'm done, the rest of the dominoes will fall and I can get the rest of the battle mechanics completed. I only need the basics for now. Right now, I don't even have THAT. But this will be harder now.
Reason being is that I spent this week getting a new job in San Francisco (yuck!). Not yuck to the new job, yuck to SF. I'm not a big city guy. I'm a small city guy; a medium city guy at best. But it pays WAY better than my current job and I'll be working with the first friend I made, my best friend. Otherwise I wouldn't do it. It's an indie wood working company so it's big on manual labor. I need it, though. I've been gaining a bit of weight and am out of shape so it'll help me in that department. I'll still be working at my current stay-at-home job, but as a part-timer. If it turns out to be too much, though, I'm out. I have school and my health to think about too. I also have one more road trip left for the year, which I'm doing after I get done writing this. It's only for a couple of days to celebrate my niece's 6th birthday. After than, I come back and will be back to the grind.
Not this Monday, but next Monday is when everything will change and I work two jobs in one day. I'll have less time to work on the game, but hey: I need the money in order to buy the things I need. Like food. I appreciate everyone's understanding on this. Weekly updates will resume now that I'm back.
