Hey, guys! What's up?
I had a rough week and almost got a heart attack so hopefully yours is better than mine ^^;
Everyone has their bad days and if you read the emergency update on 11/7/2020, you know what happened. Here's a summary of last week's heart stopping incident:
So, my laptop's HDD got corrupted.
Fortunately I managed to recover Bermuda's files. The store guy was super nice and patient with me *kudos for him!
I still have to reinstall my macbook though. It includes other important applications such photoshop, microsoft word, etc... you know the drill.
I also have to reinstall java to do programming with my Ren'Py. There's also this problem where the new photoshop refused to save as to my USB/external HDD (something about I don't have permission to save in this location?). Turns out it's because the USB/HDD format (NTSF) is uncompatible with my macbook's newly installed Sierra. But we solved this problem after a few tries! I was afraid I need to change to a different macbook OS lol.
Now that's out of the way, here's a list about what I did last week!
1. Polished Arya's and Guntur's past-life memory scenes.
This took more time than I originally thought o.o Some of their images ended up got revised/completely not used.
2. Created 8 new NPC silhouettes + 2 Crowd silhouette groups for Spring Village!
Lots of new characters~ Spring Village is based off medieval times with patriachy system so there will be a King, a Minister, nobles... but I'm no expert at this so please excuse me if I made some mistake ><;
Some sprites with important identities will be more detailed than others to make them stand out. Like the King and his Minister. On the other hand, a couple of sprites will only appear at one event. They're dedicated to the Spring Festival. Here's a sneak peek for you:
What's a festival without dancers, right? x'D
3. After my macbook got reinstalled, I had to spare some time to make sure my Ren'Py works and settle down ^^;
4. Still a slow start with the programming:
I didn't get to do much this time. After I implemented the new Spring Village worldmap, I went back to polish Winter Arc + programmed in Arya's & Guntur's CGs--but at least 6/669 pages
is a pretty number, right? //runs away
I know! I went back and forth a lot!
It just feels like I can still make Winter Arc better, but I really should focus on Spring Arc next week x_x;
Okay, here's hoping for better days ahead!
See you guys again next week,
Q&A session part 19!
1. Have you ever brought home a stray animal?
Kahlil: "I have! Sadly, our lease doesn't allow pets..."
Guntur: "Yeah, I was really tempted when he brought home kittens and puppies. We had to bring them to a shelter after having them for a few days."
Arya: "If you're so hung up on it, get a big house so you can adopt one or two."
Kahlil: "I'm planning on it! Hey, Arya, this is the nicest thing you've ever said in a long time."
2. If you can dye your hair, what color would it be?
Kahlil: "That's a tough one. I've dyed parts of my hair but never completely. "
Guntur: "If you didn't notice, I've already dyed my hair." *points to his original undercut black hair* "I'm not thinking about changing to another hairstyle or dye color anytime soon. I like my current brown with a dash of red."
Arya: "Unlikely. I don't like messing with my hair."
