QuizmasterBos wrote:(about 'we must not try to compete)Might be true, but even IF we keep your scripts it would need at least some modification in most cases. The style of writing should be uniform and your way of writing is CLEARLY different from mine. And no, I don't dismiss anything if it's written by a certain person, it's just that I haven't felt a lot of cases where I really liked your script, that's all.
I know you are the scripter, you have control of that. And obviously I am not perfect (no one is). If people like your changes (phrase per phrase), let's change it. But if people prefer my text / another member text / a lurker text in some areas because of any plausible reason, let's retain it. You do know you also control the grammar revisions/changes, so you can alter ANY text if you feel a given phrase sounds better that way. But please dont try to refrain contributions in text area and please be more receptive about another person helping you. Let's say you revised a given text. Please accept improvements from any member that got 'the right feeling'. The problem is that you sometimes sound like you dont like ANY text and only you can create texts. And I am STILL upset because you called all my text contributions as 'placeholders'
Sorry, sorry. I shouldn't have said placeholders. I honestly believed you just made up a line to have SOMETHING in there with the expectation of changing it later. I thought you just wanted to focus on other stuff. Placeholder wasn't the right word to use.
Of course I will gladly take any good script from other people I can get, not just that from myself. I will maybe tinker with it a little bit, but if it's good, it's in.
QuizmasterBos wrote:(about putting more outfits until 27 or maybe 28 total) Tigress outfit in Daisy scene? Can you remind me how this was decided? I've seen the scripts written for this character and there was NO mention of the Tigress outfit as far as I know. What am I missing?
For me, it would be nice to have a way to interact with Daisy using a Tigress outfit thats laying around, and Sigurd pic clearly shows a scene where she is laid in a bed and I also talked about this scene maybe in page 150. So, please, You and MPLDAM
need to talk about that. I wont waste time here. If YOU dont like the tigress idea, just say why. And lets listen to people. And remember the PLACEMENT of objects are easily changeable as a click. E.g. lets say I've put a tigress outfit in Daisy bed so Peach can have sex with her using her current powerup /outfit or the tigress. People dont like it. What do I do? I just remove it and put in a better place/scene. Simple, huh?
Yes, Peach was lying in a bed, but she wasn't getting fucked by something. I really don't remember this scene and the search system for Legend Of Krystal doesn't work most of the time, so I can't look it up. I don't see any correlation between the outfit and Peach and Daisy though, so maybe we should put it somewhere else entirely. We can brainstorm.
QuizmasterBos wrote:(about preferring to use time ADDING features than cutting it down/removing) This seriously all depends on the subject matter. You cannot intend to use anything you put in, it'll most likely turn into a mess.
It depends. Again, not only me and you, but what matters is how PEOPLE react to the TODO items I put in the game. You talk (or it makes me conclude) that you are always right and the game must have things you organize. In the beginning of the game, I was 'just' making levels, levels, levels, and the way I did worked. Why It wouldnt work anymore? You can say 'because we have more rules now, we decided to have 8 worlds + special world, limited outfits, more central plots'. And I will say: you're so right.
But this DOESNT mean I am using anything I make, deliberately, like I am making a mess or putting non-Mario universe items in a awful way: e.g. adding LINK in Peach's bedroom.
If you check the forum, you will notice I talk before adding a given feature. I dont just 'add tons of new things out of a sudden' without some talk. But again, in the beginning, I was doing that, and in a faster way (because I didnt have many talkings), and it worked. I wont be reminding about this matter tons of times.
We include new things. In the vast majority of times (if not all) I mention my ideas here. Features whose people really dislike are changed/improved/removed and more reunion sessions with the team are set. I still dont know WHY are you so....critical those weeks (weeks, not just the last days!). Where is the ol' good Quiz? The man that was seeing the game like I always see it, as a peaceful game, a moment of creation, where we can enjoy Peach? Where is the Quiz who also sees the good sides? Like on page 108? viewtopic.php?f=34&t=2265&hilit=toadella&start=2140#p187116
No one here is making 'grossy messes' like putting an alien model with one leg, a huge eye and 101% bitmapped saying 'HO HI HO HI' all the time and trespassing all walls like a ghost. People are respecting how the game could behave, and we will have blueprints soon, as well as kissing feature, etc. All of these ARE awaited and are interesting.
I admit it, I do force my opinion a lot. It's just that I started to feel a special connection to the game. Originally, I was content with just making a small suggestion and then seeing it back in the game, it was a glorious feeling. But, I started thirsting for more and now nothing is enough. i feel I've corrupted myself. I played it so safe way back in August of last year and I've been complaining throughout this whole year. It's just that I want things addressed properly and I am glad you are willing to talk about it. But, I just want to be able to show you reasons to think differently of things, like the various Mario games. You dislike everything from the last 15 or so years, and for a rather odd reason. I want you to be able to fully enjoy these titles just as much as I do, or anyone else for that matter. Stop hugging so tightly to the old, the new is really good too. Please?
Now, the game might not turn into a horrible mess when we put everything in, but the vibe I get from you is that you REALLY don't like cutting things. I don't want to overcomplicate matters for you by letting you loose right now: "Ivan, put everything in, nothing's too low for this game" and then at the end go: "sorry Ivan, we can't use this after all. And this, and this, and this." And then all that hard work will be lost! If we are a little tougher on new stuff now, we could prevent these kinds of issues later on. That's what I mean.
Ivan-Aedler wrote:By the way, you were busy those last days (school duties), and you havent updated any script yet (neither levels). You were complaining so much (really). And dont try to say 'Ivan, I am like that'. If so, you should really start to improve your mood while communicating. Even if something is REALLY HARSHLY EXTREMELY bad to your side, you should see the good sides. Otherwise, its better not to post. I am saying that to myself too, as I also have those galactic bad mood sometimes (but I fix them by jogging, reading a book, listening to good music) All but talking so negatively with people I respect.
So I end this post saying that: PLEASE use your creative mind to focus on new things / improving things / levels (like you did with Lunar Magic), let's see the GOOD sides, then you can create a txt file of 'useless sides' and 'bad sides' to be discussed later. Some (or all of them) can also be voted on (in the polls).
Yes, that's right, I've been slacking. The weather isn't helping much either, it's warm.
I'll try to be a bit more positive, or at least less negative. In fact, let's start now:
Sounds you sent to me by Micaturtle: I couldn't have agreed with your opinion on them more. The sounds you thought were good were good. The ones that needed rerecording DO need rerecording. The sounds were fantastic, well done by Micaturtle.
Only thing I have to say, where do you intend to use half these sound bytes?
Im sorry for not beeing so active here during the summer, Im on vacation and the weather is AWESOME!
I just wanted to say that I really love the new castle! I know you can make a lot of really cool stuff(ing) in there
and also the new Chain Chomp scene! great scene, just how I like it!
So Just wanted to say hi and that you are doing a great job!
So our buttiful beauty is relaxing on her vacation? Good for you! I hope you find the time to show us some pictures, if you want to. We haven't seen enough of you.
Ivan-Aedler wrote:There are two ideas VintageBass and I are discussing about.
1-Possibility of Peach farting (ON/OFF option). She would blush even clothed, then that blush will vanish after a timer, if she is clothed. When she eats so many mushrooms or those fruits she could fart. If she eats a poison, she could fart up to 2 times in a time span of 1 minute until a certain limit (10?). As for the scene, it could make her go away (knocking the enemy down, with dizzy eyes), then she could stand up and a messagebox could appears in: 'Peach: oooh what did I do?? Thats sooooo embarassing!'
This can be discreet (e.g. only when Peach is not moving).
I think I want in on this conversation. How did you (or VintageBass in this case) come up with this? I have to say, I'm personally not looking forward to see Peach fart, so if the option would be there, it'd be off for me. I think I need to know more before I give you my consent on making this a poll.
She farts and what does that do? Is there anyone getting off on that? Could you explain?
