Saturday update – September 13, 2020


Yes, my Saturday update is on Sunday. Well it’s still Saturday in part of the country, at least as I write this.

Trying to make this quick. Medical issues (not mine,) have resulted in me being a servant, and taking care of all the chores around the house. This has gone as I expected, and has been improving. 

Legal issues came as a surprise, and I worked my butt off to find a decent lawyer. I found one, got him on the case, and things are going my way. He even used the term frivolous. But it really depends on how intelligent the other person is. I will get an update next week.

But I knew exactly what effect the stress of everything would have on me. I already slowed down for the medical issues, but with legal issues I decided to take a kind of break, and try to get my mind on brainless stuff when I had free time. (Games mostly.) But I still added to my scripts, and am taking a self-directed college course in Python. (Auditing so I don’t need to worry about paying… or grades.) So, I am keeping a foot in the development area. 

I am relaxing this weekend, and will start ramping things up next week. I still have a decision to make on my next project, and to release the character, which I haven’t touched in a couple weeks now. I had hoped she would be done. But I have had a few ideas run through my head.

All the other character styles will be based on her design.

Saturday Update September 5, 2020

It has been a demanding week, and as I warned little time was available for the app. The way things went I had trouble getting motivated to work on it, plus with my mind on other stuff I can see it causing my brain to short circuit. 
The medical actually is going exactly how I expected, and things are getting better, but then I was hit with a little legal problem, and out of the blue, and at a really bad time.
Again, I won’t go into detail, but I had to get legal help, plus do a ton of work getting things together, but I unsurprisingly I have already been informed that the law is on my side. The only problem is that the other side could push things, and result in a long, expensive, and time-consuming series of events.
The hope is that it is made clear, and the other person just goes away. If not than I may end up having to get a job to cover those expenses. The good news is that I have credit that can cover me for a time, and to pay it back I should only need to get a part time job.
But I believe there will be a little lull as things are figured out.
Anyway, what I have done is to write and plan a few things out, and I have been training in Python. This is the backbone of Ren’Py, so it should give me more power, control, and skill in building games. But I do not need to barely know what I would, had I been looking for a job in programming. I am mostly wanting to expand my skills, and understand it deeper. 
I will keep these updates coming, and will get back on track, even if it is slower. I apologize for not revealing my project as of yet. Everything has really knocked me for a loop. 
I will keep updating each week. (And maybe someone will actually read it.)

Saturday Update - August 29, 2020


Well life events have unfortunately kicked in, so I am sorry but my plans are pushed back by 2 weeks, at least. Don’t worry I will still be working on things, but multiple life events happen to be hitting at the same time. (I won’t go into detail.)

Saturday update August 22, 2020


The past week has been a little slower than previous weeks, but I have been working on all aspects of my game. I have developed events for Project II. 
Also, next week I believe I will be showing my first character from the new game, ans stop being so cryptic about what I am working on.
 I still have issues though, and will be working on her further. It is unfortunate that she has taken so long, and that I still want to keep tweaking her. 
I am going to try something a little different, which means again starting her from scratch. This would push the characters more towards the toon look. I have modified this one so much that she has kind of lost much of the toon look I was going for, so I will attempt more of a caricature, getting the essence of her instead of trying to copy her. 
I know I don’t need an exact copy, but I do need people familiar with her to see her in the character. At the same time, I do need her to be attractive. Real caricatures can get kinda freaky looking. 
And off topic, medical issue for my “Main Squeeze” went well, and she is slowly trying to get back to doing things herself. Partly because she wants to get back to normal ASAP, but I think partly because she feels bad making me take care of her. But I don’t want her trying too much too fast. 
But I am getting back more time to work on everything as she progresses.

Saturday update - August 15, 2020


Well not too much to report. As I said last update, I have something going on, (medical, not mine,) that is interfering with my ability to work this week, and into the next 2 to 3 weeks, but it should have less of an effect each week.

I did have some progress. A little with my first character design. Tweaks and improvements, and closer to where I want her, but just not there yet. And some progress with developing the framework of the app itself. 

The most work was on the script. This is something I don’t need to be at home to do. I can do it anywhere with just a tablet and a keyboard, so that was my main focus this week.
The only issue is that I wrote an idea for Project III, and ended up producing a lot of material for that. Not as much for my current project. 

That isn’t as bad as it might sound though, since I am already done with writing the introduction, and I expect my first release will just be the introduction to the game. 

My goal is to have that first part of the game released on October 3rd. That is not set in stone since I am still fairly new to all this, so I cannot guarantee how quickly things will proceed. My goal is there to motivate me, but I won’t be set in stone. I also won’t release a product that is half-assed to get it out in time.

Once it is released, I am hoping to have an update every one to two months, and have the game complete in 6 months to a year. Again goals, not set in stone. I expect as things progress to the point that I will eventually get into a grove and produce the game at a decent rate.

Saturday Update August 8, 2020


Not much to say for this week. I tried a couple different ways of making my character, but those didn’t work out as well, so I may stick with trying to modify my best one so far. But this was a little more on the side. 

I believe I finished the basic map for my game, and a couple icons that I may or may not use. I am thinking of turning the actual images of locations into tiny icons, and that would have to wait until I create those locations. Or at least the main parts of those locations.

I kept the character creation fairly light this week, focusing more on the code for the game. But I was also slowed down by personal life event, and this will continue into next week, making it even slower. After that I will still need to deal with those events, but they will quickly clear up.

At this point I am thinking that I may just move forward even if the characters just do not look like the characters on video. But this lighter period, and focusing less on the character for awhile might help me come in fresh, especially when I am ready for a break from the code.

Creativity

One thing that doesn’t often get included in these updates is the thought process. I mean where do the ideas come from? How does a person come up with these ideas? Pretty much it is daydreaming, with a focus, and the foresight to write down those dreams and ideas. How many of you remember having great ideas, only to try to remember what it was, and it was gone? 

Although the creative process doesn’t always need to be written down. I brainstorm ideas, write some of them down, but then let the ideas percolate in my brain, running through scenarios until they start to really take shape. Then I start really taking notes. Getting the ideas quickly out of my brain and onto a page is paramount, so at this stage I am not writing scripts, but quick notes with enough details to at least spark my memories so later I can expand on them, or even reject them, once they are more fully fleshed out.

The point is to get those ideas out of your head so they don’t vanish with the aether. (Ether.) I decide later if they are worth keeping or not, I try not to judge very much when they come up, and even if they do not fit the current idea, they could fit another down the road.

So part of the process really doesn’t look like you are doing much of anything. But it can be done in the shower, bathroom, while driving, waiting in line, sitting in the doctor’s office… This is great for creativity, but it also makes it seem like I am spacing off, which I technically am. But it is functional spacing off.

Saturday Update – August 1, 2020

Another week, and I have been working on my next project. And it is quite frustrating.

Admittedly I put myself into this position, and knew coming in that it would be hard. 

My next project is a parody, and because of that I need characters that people will look at and know it is the people they represent. I do not want it to seem like I “recast” all the parts. I am not trying for perfection, and in fact have looked into caricatures to try to focus more on getting the essence of the character. 

I think I picked the hardest one to work on first. I even used a transparent overlay image to match her face shape, positioned her eyes, nose, and mouth, and I believe I got her nose down, and yet it still was like looking at another person. Part of it might be the hair since I haven’t found any hair that matches hers, and I don’t exactly have the skills to create that on my own, at least not yet. 

I ended up taking a day away from 3D work, and while I still worked on other stuff, tried to keep it lite to give my brain a rest, and reduce my stress. I did come back to it, started from scratch, and created the closest one yet, but it is still not right. Once I figure out that aspect, I think everything else will go more smoothly. Not to mention this is giving me experience so that making the next characters should be easier.

I am expecting a problems and delays, and have factored those into my plans. This is also why I decided to wait until the end of August to decide if I was going ahead with this project. I will most likely know by then, but I am forcing myself to keep my options open just in case, and this is why I am staying cryptic. 

I am still thinking it is quite likely that I will go forward, even with less than perfect characters. There are a couple more hurdles to get over with this, and once I am up and running, I expect things to move fairly quickly. It is just this initial preparation that is the biggest issue. 

I also need to make sure the story Is worth it too. I believe I have a compelling idea, and have written the beginning/introduction. I believe it’s interesting enough to grab people’s attention. I am not positive yet but the first release may only be that introduction. Kind of like a teaser for the story. I have plenty of ideas, and a general story arc of sorts. But I need more of a story line, I need to organize those ideas, and flesh them out. 

What’s sad is that the story for my next project is further along. That one has flowed out of me, and it was done in my spare time working on The Game. (Yes, it’s true that when my “workday” is over, I relax by working on another game.) 

I will stop here before I start rambling. (More.)

Saturday Update 7-25-20


Good news, my first project is available to the public. I did a release for a limited group of people earlier this week who found a simple spelling error, and I found that my icon wasn’t working, so I was able to make those changes before releasing it last night.

https://chaste-degenerate.itch.io/the-game

I have already begun working on my next project. I still have a few hurdles to overcome, so while I expect that this will be my project, I am still holding off announcing exactly what it is until I am further along.

I spent quite a bit of time on just one character, and I am still not satisfied with her. I am not trying to be perfect, especially since I have made her a little cartoonish. But I don’t seem to be getting the caricature aspects for some reason. I see cartoons that are extremely simple, and you can immediately tell who it is, and yet I cannot tell that this is who it is supposed to be. 

I may have to focus on less realism and more exaggeration. I was hoping to get away with as little of that as possible. The only reason I went with a cartoon aspect was because no matter how good I could get the people, it would never look perfect, especially when they are altered into different positions. That would take a serious 3D artist, and I do not have the funds to hire somebody like that.

But this is still just the beginning. I still have to build the “world” for them to interact in. Admittedly their world will be fairly limited. This will be obvious when everyone finds out what it is. I am feeling fairly good about this project, other than the extra work making the characters look right. 

I plan on revealing what project I am working in within the next 5 weeks.

If you are wondering why I am not just telling everyone what the next project is, it is because I have intentionally created a “limbo” time where if I am not happy with the progress, I may decide to abandon the project. Right now, I do not see that happening, and in fact I think it would be quite unlikely. 

This specific project is a parody, and there are some people that might get interested in it just because of that. I really do not want to abandon something after getting people’s hopes up, so I gave myself this time to get my bearings, and see how the project is going first. 

I originally was going to make this my third project, but I had to admit that it had to be a short project, and the idea I had for Project 3 was going to be my next project, but the scope of that one just blew up. I want my next project to be a small one, and this parody really limits a few things so lends itself to a shorter game. My original plan was to spend time on the side building up the characters so they would be ready to go once I started the project, but with switching things up I need to get them developed asap, and without the experience I planned on having by the time I began the project.

I will stop here since I could bore everyone with the details involved. Just be sure that I do not intend on abandoning my next project unless I know it would be for the best.

Saturday update- July 18, 2020

Sorry that this is running late, but it is being posted on a Saturday, in at least one of the time zones. But this shouldn’t matter since as I am posting this nobody knows who I am.

Good news, I have finished my first project. The one that introduces me to the world, and could get me 3 fans. But while it is ready to go, I want to make sure there are bonus images available, especially for my future supporters. I want to do something extra for them.
Updated Gamer Girl
But then I spilled a drink on my keyboard, and suddenly everything went bonkers. I had to crawl under my desk to unplug the keyboard from the computer. And then I had to undo all the crazy things my wet keyboard did. Seriously it was like I got a crazy virus that took over my system.

I then spent the next few hours dealing with trying to save the keyboard, and undoing all the things my wet keyboard did. I would go into details, but I doubt you want to hear it all. I think my keyboard is saved, but I am not sure how far I should trust it. I plan on testing out each keystroke. A few of the keys are lighting up wrong. 

Anyway, back to my first project, I also wanted to run it by a few other developers who helped me along the way, and see what they think of it. I may not do anything else with it, unless they find a major error with it. 

I plan on working on making sure this project is out there for the public, and make sure my pages are set up properly to display it anywhere it is available. Pretty much itch.io. And a way to distribute the early releases to my supporters.

Anyway, this should be up before next week. And I will then start the work on Project 2. I will probably try to get a month of work on it before announcing what I am working on to the public. There is already a hint for supporters in one of my posts.

Saturday Update – July 11, 2020

I worked late last night and finished the final pose for my first project. I still need to render the scenes I have left, but I am extremely close to finishing my project. There are still a few things I need to do. I still need to produce distributable versions, and test them. Not having a Mac (book, desktop) is going to be an issue. I am thinking of picking up a used on in the future.

I will be posing and rendering a couple extra images (at least,) just for my Subscribers.

Saturday Update - July 4, 2020

Or 4 July 2020 depending on where you live.

Happy Independence day to all Americans, and for everyone else, happy Saturday... eat a cookie.

After my last post things moved quickly. I produced quite a few poses, and rendered them. I then ran into a couple issues. First was dealing with how clothing reacts, and the other was the noise from the computer was starting to affect my hearing.

It really isn't a loud sound, but it is constant. My first response was to put in earplugs, but I tend to be prone to ear infections, so I decided on another solution. I searched online for something I could keep the computer in that would block off some of the sound. I ended up finding an entertainment center tower used that I thought would be perfect, but the picture gave me the impression that it was about waist height. When I picked it up I found out it was halfway between my elbow and shoulder. This also meant that it wouldn't fit where I wanted it to, at least until I moved everything. 

My desk is packed. It has a hutch, so is a bookshelf, and a storage for all things computer. It also has drawers and a filing drawer. Next to that was my printer stand which is also much larger than it needs to be, stores paper, and everything else doing with computers. It also has a filing drawer.  I had to remove everything from both of these, push them apart, and put everything back.

Biggest problem with this was that it took a whole day, and I am still needing to put things back. The benefit is that all of this was cleaned and dusted off, and much better organized. And the new entertainment center not only holds the computer, but adds more storage for this pack rat.

There is a decent amount of room between the computer and the sides of the tower, so I am thinking of getting some noise reducing panels to cut the sound even more. But I can already tell a difference in sound.

This was work, but was also a needed break from posing and rendering. I said it before, I am not great at taking breaks, even with my Pomodoro timer running. But I spent a day without the computer up, and then spent a day avoiding rendering, but at the end of the day I set up another scene. Then next day was another slow day as I rendered it while out visiting family. Got back and found a little issue, and spent a couple hours fixing it, while not re-rendering the whole scene. (Combination of rendering what I needed, cutting out everything I didn't, and then putting it all together with Photoshop.)

BTW I will be getting images up here. Nudes will only be posted for  Subscribers. Soon there will be renders that will appear nowhere, but in the Subscriber only posts.

Saturday Update – 6-27-20

If you read my last update, I restarted my project from scratch, at least the rendering part of it. I was reluctant to do that, but am very happy that I did. I not only caught up, but am ahead off where I was just a week ago. 

Today wasn’t so great though. I had issues that required me to go back to a previous save… twice. And I really need to remember to save more often than I do. Although if I did it at the wrong time, I could have saved the problem. In the end I lost about 4 hours of work. 

But I still finished one scene, and set up 2 more. I am currently rendering a scene, so I can’t exactly work, but after the day I had, I need a mental rest, and will pick up tomorrow.

My goal was to have this ready to go my July 1st. It’s possible, but unlikely. I will do my best, but I won’t cut corners to get there. I recognize that I am still a beginner at this, and need to accept that my first project won’t be perfect. But I don’t need to make it any worse just because I have some artificial deadline I made for myself.

Lost Skin
If you don’t know what that means, the character I dubbed Gamer Girl now looks like a silver mannequin. I am fairly certain I know what happened, but it was the newest in a series of problems I was having with rendering this first “game”. 

My problems really stem from the fact that I was beginning to learn all this when I started this little project. It was always my goal to use this project to learn the skills in building games, and in that I believe I have been successful. But it also meant that I had a lot of “legacy” issues stemming from things I did when I knew less than I know now. There is always a reluctance at throwing away something you have spent well over a month developing. But sometimes you just need to start from scratch, and that is what I did.

Yesterday was spent trying to figure out how to recover the lost skin. The fact that I have multiple renders of her, many test renders, but each and every one of them refers to the exact same file. Well except an older one with an older skin. That skin was backed up, but not the current one.

I had a backup program in place, then my computer crashed, and I attempted to get into it to recover everything, but it didn’t know that it was the same computer, so the backup I had been keeping current was worthless. (But I still could access everything, so that was fine.) Since then I manually back things up, but need an automated system in place again.

Anyway, last night I knew that if I put a new skin on her I would have to re-render the scenes I already rendered. So, I decided that I was just going to start from scratch, and rebuild everything, but with my current skills. 

And I just finished rendering my first scene a couple hours ago.

What took me well over a month to achieve, I was able to rebuild in about 24 hours. Not only that, the render took about half the time of my previous renders. The result may end up speeding up my progress. 

I did use a few tricks to speed things up, and I kept “Gamer Guy”, just modifying him a little.
What’s funny is that my next 2 planned projects are going to be much quicker to render. The way they will be set up is going to be completely different. So, my “quick and easy” project is actually designed to at least in part be harder than my future projects.

Saturday Update June 20

Well I did miss last Saturday, but until I actually have something out I doubt anyone will read this until a future date. So I may not be as worried about that schedule, but once I have something out I will be sure to keep up with at least a weekly update.

I really feel I am advancing in this endeavor. I created a template for building scripts for visual novels in Scrivener. There are a lot of templates out there, but none that I could find that are really designed for a visual novel. I even searched for templates using multiple search terms. I ran into a person who wrote about writing nonlinear, but it referred to his process of writing with OCD, not writing something that is nonlinear. 

I am fairly certain that my template will be altered over time, but since the story can be organized in folders, or even pages can be turned into folders and store other pages, you can easily take a story down multiple paths. The only issue here is if and when the story reconnects to the rest of the story. There is no real way that I am aware of that can directly connect those elements. (There might be, and I haven't found it yet.) But here I believe that all I have to do is to name where the story continues.

It also has a section for notes. Both notes for each page, and folder, as well as for the whole project. I will be making notes of things that are going on, and things I need to work on. Then I simply need to make sure all notes are taken care of before I am done with the script. I will probably also have a notation that tells me what the note is related to. I may take a note for something that I won't need to worry about until the next update, so put it off until I am ready to write those scripts.


But this isn't all I have done. I found out how to make my renders better, I practiced with posing characters so I can move them more effortlessly, I fixed an issue with my main character in the first project, and just created my first character for my next. At least the face is done. The body will take more work. (And maybe the hair.)
I spent time on tutorials on all the software I am using. Although one of them, Photoshop, I really have been learning new skills on the fly. I want to do something, I look up a video, and follow along until I have achieved my goal. 

There's more, but I will cut it off here. Just know that this has been a 7 day a week job for me. I do force myself to take breaks, as do other people, and life in general, but I am still putting in over 10 hours a day, usually more.

Hey everyone. This is my first post, and below is a test render of a character I designed to be used in a story/game I am building. Technically it is just a click through story, and a short one at that. It is more of a test project before I start work on my first game.

The Render Engine This level first and foremost frees me up. It might not completely eliminate dipping into my savings, but it will extend it out quite a bit. But it also means that I will begin the process of building my "Render Engine" as I call it. Just a dedicated system for rendering, freeing up my system. i will be buying it piece by piece, and getting some expert help in building it right. Side note, 100% of this money will go towards credit cards. The credit I used to get up and running, and produce content. Especially since the "render engine" will be bought on credit.
