I got to thinking, and I decided my skills could be applied better, as I have many (I'm not trying to sound like a jerk; everyone has a lot of skills), and I don't exactly think I'm using the best of them (for example, I'm not too great at scripting, but I am constantly trying to make new objects and classes anyway).
So, in the future, I think a lot of my work will be more external, like documentation (the EgoBestiary is a good example). This does not mean I will stop making objects, of course. I still like doing that every now and then, but it involves a lot more effort than other things I could be doing.

The one thing I would really like to see is one of my classes in the game. As you have probably realized, that's pretty much been my goal from day one: getting a new class in the game.
Unfortunately, I can't really do much else on my classes without a large amount of effort, and I think it'd be better if I worked on something else.
In other words, If someone wants to do the stuff I listed in the WABWO topic (by the way, I updated my post; everyone else should do the same, as I don't think anyone has since they first posted...), please do so!
But at the same time, I'm willing to wait. Getting one of my classes (and I mean any of them, even the ones that are currently just ideas, like the river trole) in the game would make me very, very happy, and as such, I am willing to wait for however long is necessary, and, in the mean time, do whatever I can elsewhere.

So, that said: I'm going to first update the website, and then move on to finishing the EgoBestiary. After that (and that might take a while), I'll probably do fortune cookies.
Oh, sorry -- FIRST I'll finish the Archaeologist skins, of course. I'm not in a huge hurry, as I know it'll be a little while before Zefz is ready for the next release anyway.
And at some point between all that, I'll probably draw some stuff, a new Squerkle being among them (although I'm tempted to use Hiroy's... but I don't think it'd look very good on a small scale).

Oh, yes, and I will of course continue my constant contribution of ideas until you're all driven out of your minds.
Of course, you've put up with my opinions (and my need to state them at every moment) for quite some time, so I'm not sure that will ever happen.
...And if it did, it probably wouldn't stop me anyway. Mr. Green

To make things absolutely clear: This does not mean any drastic change. It just means I will probably be focusing on different things from now on.

I know, I know, I make threads like this all the time, and they're not really geared towards response. I don't really know any other way to do it.

Oh, 2.6.4 is finished actually. I was just waiting for your new skins Wink eh and I have to add those new text things you made too (if I can find them).

I had almost uploaded the new installer now, right before I remembered your skins and improvements Razz

aaanyways, I could help you with one of the classes... laaater sometime. I first have a bunch of half finished objects from you that need to be looked at too. And the centaur needs animation in addition to my plans to finish the story line.

I think you should make finishing the storyline your top priority, but remember that it needs to be SUPERAWESOME.
And I still have no idea what we would do for voices, hmm.

Anyway, better get cracking on those skins now. Not today, though; I need to get to bed. And tomorrow I'll be gone for most of the day. Sad
But Tuesday. Or tomorrow night if I can manage it.

Well, its not I who have to wait for the goodies Razz

Maybe I can manage to cram some extra stuff in there in the meantime. Like Soul Carver or attack speed system.

The Soul Carver is finished, so maybe you can implement that first. And THEN the attack speed system. BTW, I think whip speed, light weapon speed (daggers, stillettos, hand crossbows, ninjastars) should be affected by dexterity like spells are affected by intelligence and wisdom.

Soul Carver was not finished. But I did actually finish it yesterday, with new scripts and such.

So purple, your soulcarver now works ingame Razz Not just to implement it somewhere. And we are all still waiting for those textures Razz (can you feel the pressure? Wink)

And that idea about dex enhancing damage for specific weapons is a good idea methinks. But not in this release, I don't want to mess too much around with the old code, which is going to be scrapped for the new one.

Wait, you mean the code for EVERYTHING? The whole GAME?!
...Whoah?

Anyway, I'm doing it right now.
Well, not right now. Right now I'm typing. But as soon as I'm finished checking everything here....

Yeah, bgbirdsey has done some really big overhauls converting the code to a new and better one. We just need to crack those bugs before it can be released for real.

LOL. There is still a way to go before releasing. I will have to do some alpha testing, then we will need to make a "dev release" for beta testing.

Most of the major components are working now, but I am trying to do something with the Egomap2 so we can eliminate the dependence on crystalspace.

Razz Yes. I did not say it would not take long time Wink

I compiled the new installer for 2.6.4 so it is ready for upload. Purple, do you have the website ready for next release?

I meant just to have the pages ready for upload on your pc. We will figure it out by the release Wink
