"Vacation"

Postby bob12321 » Fri Feb 22, 2013 6:24 am

Update 8/25/2013 not really more like an announcement
I've decided I'm not 100% happy with the girls as they are right now. So I've decided to go back to the basics of drawing them. They'll still look pretty much the same but I feel I can do better with less tracing and playing Frankenstein by putting different parts together. I'm confident that the new girls will look even better and they will actually be able to move(instead of only their expressions changing).

Some of you may be thinking, why change them? and why can't you just work on the game?

Well I just played a dating sim the other day for inspiration and I noticed mine sucked in comparison. As a developer, I couldn't stand for this so I'm gonna up my game.

I'll make updates along the way so stay tuned look forward to seeing the girls in a new way. I'm drawing from scratch!

Update 8/5/2013
Since this thread has been more active lately I thought that deserved an update.
-Fixed fighting system
-Players can now take a bath
-Added a bath time animation for the player
-Players can now increase their charm stat by taking a bath

Players can't talk to the girls and actually have a conversation yet, so this doesn't really affect anything at the moment. And don't worry the girls won't be in chibi form when they show up at the hot spring. But I might make them chibi somewhere else just for fun.

Update 7/1/2013
Damn I think I've gotten faster at drawing and programming. Here's the next update and the hot springs are open. You can increase your charm by taking a bath, or at least you'll be able to after I make the button work. The girls won't show up yet because I haven't drawn their, "bath time body's" yet. So stay tuned for that! You can however see the next event, where Manami tells you the rules for the hot spring. Only one rule really, but I don't think anyone will be following it anyway.

Update 6/30/2013
I'm back! I know I've been gone for a while (I'm pretty sure I've said this before, déjà vu). Anyway added in a whole bunch of new area's to see and some even hold sneak peaks as to what I'll be adding next. Well not really peaks more like keep you eye on areas that stand out from the normal, because those places will be used in the game for story developments, game play, etc. Also had a great idea for something to add to the game, HOT SPRINGS! Had to do it because I just saw it in a game I was playing, and besides, who doesn't love a good hot spring scene in their game or anime? (At least the from the girls side anyway) Although you can't go to the hot spring yet so stay tuned for that because once I add it in, there will be a game event there.

Update 4/29/2013
Know I've been gone a while, been trying to learn to read/write/speak Japanese. You'll also see some Japanese in the game (Not much just a little).
Other than that, here's the details of this massive update:
Finished the fighting:
-You can fight the girls (To fight them either go in their room when you know you’re not supposed too or click the fight button when they randomly pop up)
-You can fight the animals (To fight the animals try to go into the jungle, I'll be moving it into the jungle when I have drawn the jungle)
-You can't get the girls moves yet because I haven't added that feature in yet.
-I'm thinking that whenever you fight the girls you and they get stronger so I'll add that in later. (Only you and the girl you were just fighting)
-You can't beat the girls yet so don't try. (I think the only ones you can beat right now are the tiger and the snake)
-When you lose you return to your room/cave and you lose a day.
-Beating or fighting the girls do nothing for stat changing right now
-Get their interest in you over 5000, they won't be pissed at you going in their room anymore (unless it's night because they'll kick your as just for waking them up)
New Scenes:
-Beach reverse view
-Before entering the jungle
New Item Pick Up (They pop up randomly, and no you can’t give them to the girls yet):
-You can now find shells across the beach
-You can now find coconuts by the palm trees
Chat:
-Still does nothing but say under construction
Other than that I tweaked some of the girls and the main character (nothing probably noticeable unless you took a screen shot of the before and after)
I'm sure there's other stuff but I can't remember, let me know if anything doesn't work the way it should since this is a pretty big update.
Update 4/5/2013
Added in the last animal and 4 of the girls to randomly fight.
Added in all of the attacks for the ones present.
Added Special attacks for player to use.
Added pain for the player.(Girls won't look like their feeling pain until I move the fight box into the main game)
I'm sure there was at least one more so I added whatever that was.
Update 4/4/2013
Well it seems that "having all the girls specials" has won it in the polls.
Besides closing out the polls here's another animal to fight. (with a little random encounter thrown in)
(Cant fight the girls yet)
Update 3/29/2013
Added a test fight file (basic fighting which will be first game)
Added first enemy (you can only fight the snake right now and no one is allowed to win right now)
Update 3/28/2013
In the event of a tie I decide, I'm just gonna do a little of all of them.
Update 3/24/2013
More people scored me an 8 for the polls so I'm gonna go with that as my answer. Thanks for everyone who voted.
Update 3/23/2013
Added basic rooms for all the characters.
Added night time.
Added random encountering (wont happen inside rooms)
Added first event with Satomi (you'll have to find it).
Your choices in the beginning now have effects on the girls.
Added basic interaction buttons(only chat does anything right now).
You can chat with the girls(although you don't actually get to say anything).
Update 3/22/2013
Added the cave entrance area.
You can also go into the rooms, but there isn't anything in them yet.
Added the legal disclaimer to the front (I know there aren't any adult scenes yet but they'll eventually make there way in there)
Update 3/20/2013 Part B
Added two more zones.
Update 3/20/2013 Part A
Updated the storm effects.
Update 3/19/2013
Added in the rest of the opening to the game.(I know there's no food yet, I'll add it late)
Added a skip button.(Will skip the entire opening)
Added in some basic navigation for after the opening.(Although only one area actually has any)
Update 3/17/2013
Added meeting for next girl.
(Game stops at the buffet for now and yes I know there's no food drawn right now)
Update 3/8/2013
Added meetings for more girls (although the locations aren't done yet)
Update 3/2/2013
The last girl has been added. cast your votes for who's your favorite while you can because after I get the full beginning of the game in, you wont be able to look at them like this anymore.
Update 2/28/2013
Added Purple Girl.
Update 2/26/2013
Still working on the girls but here's the game so far (I probably need a scenery artist).
(Also will stop on the second construction, so if you can't continue the speech it's because I haven't added it yet)
Update 2/25/2013
Here's Orange (and purple won so I'll be working on her next)
Update 2/24/2013 Part B
Decided that 'Red' didn't really fit the personality that I had in mind for her, so I changed her up a bit.
(Still working on Orange)
Update 2/24/2013 Part A
Orange won, so I'll get to work on her today.
Update 2/23/2013 Part B
Here's Blue (By the way these colors are not there names, but if you can think of ones that are better then what I have in mind feel free to let me know by posting them.)
Also next girl polls end when I wake up tomorrow so vote while you can.
Update 2/23/2013 Part A
Blue wins by a 'post', so I'm gonna work on her today.
Update 2/22/2013
I got bored of waiting for midnight so I went ahead and made the next girl from who currently had the highest amount of votes.
So here she is, you voted and this is who she was:
First Post!
Here's a new game that I will be working on. I wont release the game's alpha yet because it's just not ready yet.
What to know about the game!
It's going to be a sim dating game (Because honestly when was the last free one of these)
It's going to have 6 girls and I'm still working on them.
What your looking at is the first of the girls that is going to be in the game.

If you have any more questions ask them because I cant give you an answer until you do.

I will be closing this poll at 12:00 Midnight, Eastern Standard Time. So make sure you vote quickly. Then I'll open up the next poll for the next girl while I work on the winning vote for this poll.

so are these girls based of any anime characters? Blonde, orange, and red all look familiar to me. Just curious really and nice to see someone else taking a stab at doing a sim date.

I made them with parts of characters from a character database. So parts of them are from anime's, games, novel, manga's, etc.

o_____o the number of times you can divide a number by two depends on the size of the number in question. You did not specify a number....

It has been a while but I seem to remember that the question was "How many *ways* can you divide a number by 2 blah, blah, blah" - not how many *times*. The difference is subtle but I can only really think of one way to divide a number by two regardless of the result. But one isn't an option for the answers - which indicates to me that the whole "I'm smart" answer is a trap response and the good response is the "Smart enough" answer.

Sorry won't say yes or no to these type of questions because if I did then I'd be writing my own walk-through.

Btw updated!

Looking good, intro is pretty quick and to the point, you could probably stretch it out some if you wanted too. I know you already said you are going to add food to the buffet scene. The storm clouds I'd work on personally, maybe make the rain thinner as well.

Personally, I'd change the dialog box colors around some. Like match the text to the girl's hair color as often as possible, I think that's what these games usually end up doing, it makes it easier to associate text color with hair color. And the narrator or the player's box could be the grey one, instead of the scientist girl's box.

Yeah you got me I could have done better with the clouds, so I did.

I would have done the color fonts with hair but that wouldn't work for all of them because some of the backgrounds would blend with the font. Also I have a reason why the colors are the way they are, but it probably won't be seen any time soon since I have to start drawing the scenes to the island first.

Thanks for the post. As usual your brutally honest, and I actually like that you are because you make my games better.
