leave me alone and let me work

leave me alone and let me work

What we Are:

A separate but equal group of editors who know what they are doing, but may occasionally need feedback from someone who isn't an idiot, or can offer more efficient ways to do something. This is not a group for noobs to ask "How does I make my Zealot fly?" No, go away. Not everyone has a complete comprehension of every aspect of the editor, this is understood. If you do not know what a loop is, you do not know enough. If you do not know what a dialog box is, you do not know enough. If you do not know how to make the units for your own map, you do not know enough. No one wants to spend their time making a map for someone incapable of doing it themselves.

Well, wow... you really don't like people, do you?

Good point! I/we/us want to spend our time editing, and have a moderately dedicated group of people to occasionally lend aid. The kind of people who know what is going on, and aren't jumping in with terrible suggestions; or troubleshooting, "Is the power turned on? Check for me, make sure the power cable in the back is plugged into a working outlet. Do you see a green light? is the monitor powered on, and plugged in?"

What is Required of Members:

You must have an active project. You do not need to have your own "author" page or anything. Anyone with a blank map can have a green boarder. Show proof that you are not illiterate with the editor, and have a plan. I/We only ask that you put in as much group effort as you would like to get from others. It is helpful to have someone who knows your map well, and knows what you are trying to accomplish in the long run. If you want someone to test you map and give constructive feedback on the UI, be prepared to offer an equal value of assistance in return. This is not a charity, do not feel inclined to help others, but also, only expect as much out as you put in.

Anyone interested in joining... well... you can figure out what to do. Otherwise, I will enjoy being all alone in this group. No one wants me to enjoy it as much as I will.

    I was gonna try to get my RPG ready for the contest; but was just insanely overwhelmed by how much I would have needed to finish. I was then gonna create a trigger based tower defense with huge variety and the sorts, for this contest; but lost interest when Dark Souls 2 came out. So, I have been on break from editing for a couple of weeks; and will remain that way for a couple more. I am still planning on making a tower defense though; as a data learning tool for my RPG; as I have a lotttt of data work to do and learn.

    Your game reminds me of an old Sega Genesis game I used to play when I was like 6... I forget what it was called... Looks fun though!

    Hey guys. Just wanted to notify you that I am back in business, regarding Arcade development. I just recently published a beta version of my new project Star Fighters. Are you doing anything for the Race the Cabinet contest?

    Have you completely stopped work on your RPG, or just doing a side project for now? I was considering a side project for this competition, but "ehh". I hope to have an alpha to enter in this contest; if I can get everything done that I would like; it might have a shot of getting a vote.

    Oh it goes, taking a break from it right now though. Starting on a new project to enter in the contest that has come up. Even if my RPG were done the way I wanted, it is the wrong type of map to have a chance at winning.

    Hey what's up. Been a year already that i had not work on anything because i didn't really had time to work on starcraft 2 maps as i was working on a Minecraft Server and also some other things. Well recently i created a Custom Melee Map with instant build and planning in the future also to add more balanced campaign troops into it.

    I just spent weeks working on a random item generator, which works alongside a 100% dialog based inventory; and saves/loads in banks.

    Needless to say; it was a lot of work! Saving 7 variables for each item; so that it could be remade through the banks. having to compress and decompress those variables all into a single string; so they could actually fit in the bank... 5 save slots, 35 item slots, 7 variables per item =1225 variables to be set per player; just to cover items.

    Mind numbing pain my friend; mind numbing!

    It varies with how I make hybrids, based on what I need, what the problem is, etceteras. Probably won't be the prettiest code/xml when it is all said and done, in fact I imagine it will be downright fugly in some areas, but I don't care, will do the job I want it to!

    Yea, working on Horologium RPG again, slowly but surely, slowly replacing my MMORPG playing/sleeping with more editing. As soon as my guild beats the last expansion in game, which could be very soon now, I'll stop giving a crap at all about logging in. Anyways, putting some real effort into getting my 4th class operational, will either proceed to finish Area 3 or get my 5th class going finally then. Really should probably just get the 5th class going, I know how to easily make most of his planned abilities now anyways. Save 1 or 2, which is probably why I'm putting it off :)

    Dialog work makes me sad, I know how important/critical it is of course. Doesn't make me hate it any less. Especially for little menus that the bulk of users will just be, get the hell outta my way and close instantly.

    I also like to combine triggers and data; though technically, you shouldn't need triggers to amplify data. As a triggerer, I find it easier. A data guy shouldn't have a problem with it though. You are working on your holo RPG again? I am still doing dialogs for my map. Hundreds of hours of dialog work. Pretty much my entire map is based around dialogs. I have been working to pretty them up a bit. I have about 70% of them done. Another 2 weeks and I will be ready for the data grind to end all data grinds!
