If you been keeping up with my Facebook (my main social media), you know that my new laptop arrived! For those who haven't....well, my new laptop arrived! LOL
As far as The Legend of Pangaea work goes, I wasn't able to do anything since my old PC was dying and I didn't have a computer to work. Because of work and school, I didn't have a lot of time to sketch, but for this week's post, I want to reveal something for version 0.5:
Pangaea, New Home Town, and The Sea of Trees are getting a redesign.
New Home Town is ok, but not where I need it to be. I'm gonna tinker with it by moving a couple areas around and maybe add a few NPCs. Maybe. Either way, New Home Town needs a bit of a shuffle. I'm also gonna do something different to try something out to really unify New Home Town as one area. I have an idea of how it will work in my head, just not sure in practice.
The Sea of Trees is as big as I want it, but a few places...I'm just not happy with. I need to restructure the whole thing and get it where I need to be. It will still be multisectional, but the problem is that they're about the same size. That's boring. It's a sea of freakin' trees!! I need to make it better to fit the name. Right now it's more like a lake of trees. Expect the whole dungeon to be bigger for version 0.5.
Pangaea itself is gonna be larger. There is almost no wiggle room for world map exploration, as seen when first entering the Sea of Trees. I was so focused on the script, I forgot about that detail. I'll also take the opportunity to touch up and redesign various locations while I'm at it. This is an RPG so there will be an airship. As such, I need to create some islands which are only accessible by airship. Initially, I planned to have a smaller boat available to sail the seas for my sailor-players, but I made things too accessible. I need to rework some areas so that doesn't happen. One island was shaped like a monster as a joke (you can see the map here or on my social media pages), but I think it's too corny, even for me, so I'm fixing that as a normal island.
I have other ideas to implement as well, but I think that's enough for now. I need to get back to work on version 0.4. Thankfully, everything transferred over flawlessly, so I don't have to start over on anything. I'll be able to get on this later tonight. MUCH later, but hey: I've always been a late-night person anyway.
Thank you to everyone who's been showing support! It's been tough, but your support is what makes it all worthwhile!
