Hey there Pangaeans.
Been keeping busy with some good news and bad news.
Bad news first. Experimentation went up in fire and smoke. Yikes, it was bad, but I'm glad I did it. If i did it later, no doubt it would have ended up even worse. What do I mean? Well, some of the plugins I was using for 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 definitely do not work as they should be and caused some chaotic glitches. Rest assured that anyone who downloads version 0.3 now won't experience that, but I'll need to work on a fix for it so that it reflects 0.3's success, otherwise it's gonna look like I took 1 step forward and three steps back. I hate being slow, but I'd rather players know what I'm up to instead of wondering why 0.4 is taking so long when it should be so simple. And yes, I'm aware it was supposed to be simple, not this cluster of chaos. Every day is a learning experience, I tells ya...I'm almost ready to say never mind and implement a few other changes I have in mind instead for 0.4, but I promised to revamp the battle structure and I intend to.
So what's the good news? Part of it is because now that I see where my experimentation went kablooey, I can fix that up which should help progress 0.4. I can finally FINALLY do something about the environment aspect of the battle system, which is the whole point of version 0.4. I'll spend this week working on the framework on paper and do them bit by bit, or specifically element by element. Since Zero is going to be a character who can use all elements, I'll unlock them in 0.4 for players to play with, but only for the elements he's exposed to. Once I'm sure that's done, I'll unlock a couple extra moves for June, Boulder, Cici, and Azami for players to monkey with.
Starting this week, I'm not gonna enter my personal life stuff any more. Why? I honestly believe no one cares. You didn't read this to know my life story. I only put this in so people know I wasn't just twiddling my thumbs, but really I think you all know what's up. And if you really wanted to know, you can ask. As long as it's not too personal, I don't see why not.
Thanks again to everyone who still supports me on this site. I'm not making any money off of site visits, so you spreading the word is all I have. Every day, I'm grateful that hundreds of you do so all over the world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
