I have... different plot developments incoming in the final mission.
Corelia awoke abruptly.
Janus stirred next her, possibly disturbed by her jolting up, though he seemed to remain asleep. Suddenly the door burst open as Bayo, wearing an apron and oven mitts on both hands, began shouting.
"Sorry ma'am, but the pies just aren't turning out the way we had hoped for the big event tomorrow!"
The big day was coming up and these pies needed to be perfect! This was not the time for one of Bayo's classic mixups. The annual Geraldus "Bake Your Butt Off" competition is no joke and Tyrone, the 3-year reigning champion, surely was not making similar mistakes. The Khaal-Ro judges were also known to be quite relentless in their criticisms of baked goods when they detected the smallest slight to their delicate tastes.
Corelia reflected back on when she and Janus founded this baking company a few years back... Henderson doubted they would ever make it, but here they were, about to compete in the BYBO finals! She laughed to herself at how Henderson thought he had last year in the bag before being sniped out of the quarterfinals by Ryan, his own ex-apprentice in the art of muffin making.
Her dreams of late certainly weren't helping considering how hard it is to get a good night of rest when everyone you know keeps getting murdered in your head. Geraldus had subsidized all of their baking equipment in their first year even after the Hand of Volos tried to block her and Janus's commercial sales - of course they were a trustworthy group of individuals!
She struggled out of bed to hopefully correct whatever antics Bayo had stirred up. If she had to, she knew she could call up Meridian - the man was the most reliable dough vendor they'd worked with in the past - in case anything needed to be started from scratch.
Considering how often I rip it off, it should be a given that I know what game it's from. :D And yes, of course that's the minimap. :P My "dunno" was referring to the "Seraphim" text (which I suppose might be some kind of watermark).
Anyway, I managed to do some more work today, completing a very significant cinematic that reunites two major characters.
I haven't downloaded the new patch, and won't be doing so for a while, as I fear what'll happen. However, for some reason, I can't test my maps, a problem I know some who have patched have encountered. I expect this to be fixed, though.
Meanwhile, I continue working on the final mission, creating cool new features, one of which was thought up by none other than DEFILERRULEZ himself! It's a very cool gameplay mechanic that I've never done before. It should be very tense!
I've also decided to add another boss, making it a total of 3 (if I stick to the plan).
Anyway, I have a little teaser: the mission is going to open with a very special prologue, showing stuff that previously has only been hinted at, implied at, referenced in dialogue, or just happened off-screen. So you'll get to see flashbacks of characters like Janus, Ghost Caine, Cenereal, Corelia, Quarinius and Samuel Ryan!
I don't know. The terrain is 95 %, but I still have most of the triggers remaining. All of this could be done in less than a week or so, but I've discovered some bugs now, including the fact that I can't open new tabs in the data editor, making me unable to access units and actors (among other things).
EDIT 1: Oh wait, it works now. Well then, if no other major bugs appear, I might finish by the end of next week.
EDIT 2: I get "param/value" when I restart map. Anybody know how to fix this?
EDIT 3: A lot of auto-quit going on. This might test my patience.
