Is That The Time Already?

I just realised it’s February already – almost Valentine’s Day! I hadn’t even thought about it until today, which means I only have four days left to do something romantic for my “significant other”!

That doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned this blog either, although I must admit to my newest addiction: Resort World on Facebook! It’s become the bane of my life, building and trying to keep up! Their Valentine’s Day “promo buildings” reminded me actually. EDIT: Inactive.

Aside from spending a little too much time playing the game, I’ve been spending more time writing, this time trying my hand at sci-fi, although it’s not the hardcore type. Just a short story set in the not-so-far-away future.

Work has also continued on Ars Magia: Genesis, but I’m at a standstill with that. Trying to get the maps just right is proving problematic, especially the overland map. I’ll figure it out one way or another because I’d like to get a playable demo out soon! EDIT: The project is defunct.

In between, I’ve also been experimenting with a workable formula for rebuilding The Gladiator Project in RMXP RMVX. And I’ve realised that some features that were available in the RMVX version may need to be sacrificed in favour of other features. But I’m still playing around with it.

Finally, based on the poll results so far (in the right-hand sidebar), it seems that changing the layout of RPG Maker Times is inevitable, provided prototypes can be viewed – and voted on – first. So, I’ve been experimenting with different styles, colour schemes and layouts. Certainly, for the newest incarnation – you could say “version 3” – I’d like to add additional features, such as a better navigation menu, a table of contents, maybe some games showcases, and maybe even a forum and live chat! Who knows where it’ll lead. That might be an idea for another poll.

I’ll try to get a list of *good* resource sites for the next few entries.
