I consider myself to be a mid-old fag, and I left the game several monthes ago, but I forgot to say a goodbye.

This time it is a sincere goodbye to this game, and I hope you all understand it. I don't want to sound blackmailing or complaining, but the lack of real content and basically Jason doing things that most of us dont really approve of is the driving factor of me leaving a few monthes ago.

Now things have moved on, so I dont want myself to bear the pain and loss of seeing a dev driving his game into the ground. I'm leaving, and GL to you ppl all. Hopefully one day the game will be great again and i'll come back.

I mean, people might already have suggested this, but I dont care and im suggesting this!

So why do people create buildings in the real world? sure, it can be for warmth and aesthetics, but i think buildings are mainly created for protection against harsh weathers.

My idea is for there to be a rain clouds and roofs. a rain cloud is treated like an entity and moves around the map in grid-like patterens. Many of the clouds together can form a storm! When a rain cloud touches a roof, which ill talk in a bit, it will transition into a stormy cloud, but not raining. then when it is not touching a roof it will transiton back to a rain cloud. Rains can have a negative effect on players, like turning their clothes into rags and put out fires.

Now, roofs. This might be an over-the-top suggestion, but i think this will work really well with rains. Roofs have to be only be able to be placed on support beams or floors with support beams, similar to how you can only till soil on the ground. The indication that there is a roof is that there will be a shadow on the ground. the support beams can have several looks, and you can switch between them by tapping it with a stone. There can be one look where it is barely visible (thus not obstructing the views of people walking or working under the roofs), and one where it is very obivous (mainly for aestetic reasons). This can encourage people to build like little open-air workspaces like this one:


But that may also have a disadvantage: It can be knocked over by winds! winds should act like rains and be more rare than rains, but it can knock down support beams and transition the support beams with roof into rubble pile. Now walls can stop the wind. The wind entity will dissapper if it touches a wall (similar to how a spring cart will turn into a crashed cart if it landed on a tile without a rail). so you can essentially have buildings with walls and support beams with roof that are immune to any kind of weather.

I think this will encourage people to build buildings more often, not for aestetic reasons, but for actual survival. I would be delighted to provide you some sprites for you Jason if you decide to take on this idea.

Oh-- FS, do you do art by any chance? I'm looking for someone who can make game sprites who might be interested in helping with my GPS farming game. Right now it's all text based and it looks like a math major made it which isn't uh... surprising because that's what happened.

IDK thought I'd ask. I have no idea where to start when it come to how the game should look. I just know how it should work. That is if I can ever figure out these GPS libraries. And making it work on all kinds of phones might be an issue. I might punk out and only make it for iphone...UGH.

Oh I would be more than happy to do some art for you (maybe not as good as you might want), I'm mediocre at drawing. Although Ik u didn't ask me to do it it would be my pleasure to help you.

Better towns give babies will to stay. If they /die in a good town they will feel the acute pain of losing something, only this time what the suicider will lose is a potentially good and fun life.

#13 Re: Main Forum » Improvements in the new language system » 2019-05-15 22:23:23

another of my idea is when you're born you are assigned a random language, and other people can speak that language, though it is more likely that people of your own skin tone speak that language. Maybe people of your own skintone can also speak another language, but the word scrambler will make the word spoken form these people easily reconisable. This way you can learn languages from people your own skintones easier

Why are you trying to oppose someone who's actually trying to be good again?

Ah I see you are scared that your best greife buddy is turning good and your conscience might turn you around. Also because you dont have a greifeing partner now lol.

One's greatest eneime is oneself

#15 Re: Main Forum » Improvements in the new language system » 2019-05-15 22:09:02

maybe instead of that family name in front of the garbler you can have another variable for different skin tones (unless the game cannot detect what skin color each player have), and use the skin tone on the garbler. So when someone from a different skin tone speaks to you, its goin to look like this:

Skin tone ( filter ( "hello") )

so the main difficult part is for the game to detect which skin tone the player has.

People stay in a town mainly becasue the town fits them well and that they can use their hour productively and entertaining at wherever they are. So it basically comes down to how good the town is. If the town is good and a baby suicided the suicider might feel like they missed a great opportunity in a will-be great life and they had so much future. I fell like maybe some changes can be made off of this phenominon?

This is a historic moment - God forgives anyone who wants to be forgived, like at the end of The Mission.

Atta boi Toxic, maybe you can take your mask off now?
