A Call to Arms

Post  Vava on May 25th 2011, 11:56 pm

It's that time, again. The time to cry out for all those who still linger with regrets on these lonely boards to come together and take action so that we might seize the glorious tomorrow that lies just at the edges of our grasp!

<.< >.>

... A bit much, huh? Yeah, I kinda guessed. Well, anyway, it's been quite some time since we've made any head-way, and I think it's high-time we get back to making some progress. My suggestion to get activity going, again, isn't especially grandiose, but it should be a sufficient amount of work to get our creative juices flowing (did I just make a dirty joke?). I'm proposing starting a large thread in which we will take the girls who we know can be implemented into the game and apply some statistics and abilities to them, all the while concocting new abilities, looking deeper into the construction of the future game engine, and maybe even developing some possible story arcs. While I wanted to get such a thread started, today, I've come to realize that I'm going to need just a little more time to get all of my words straightened out.

Anyway, this post was also supposed to double as a role-call, so, how's everyone been doing? Anyone have any news they'd like to share?

Hey all, sorry I've been MIA recently but RL has not been kind to me. It's finally beginning to ease off a bit though and I've been thinking about ways to drum up activity again but it looks like Vava beat me to it. Smile

Sussing out the various girls' stats and whatnot is definitely something that needs done and what's more, determining which ones are naturally of a higher, mid-range or lower tier will also help a lot when it finally comes time to settle on a definite roster. Most importantly though is that we simply need to be accomplishing something. I'm not stupid, I know that my general and overall lack of time to work on the game coupled with the near constant left-field distractions that keep plaguing me and my own messed up brain chemistry and personality flaws is the biggest thing holding us back. But as flattering as it may be that all eyes are on me there's still a lot that can be getting done and besides, life being the uncertain thing it is I don't want SimBro to die an untimely death if I lose my internet connection for an extended period again or get committed to an asylum because they finally drive me crazy at work (or put in prison because I finally killed someone) or just plain get hit by a bus or something, you know?

Basically what I'm saying is that while there are certainly things that only I can do, while I'm doing them there's still plenty besides that everyone else can be helping with and if worse comes to worst (which I certainly hope doesn't happen, I still have every intention of finishing my game model, getting it coded and seeing it played) I'd feel a lot better knowing that if something does happen to me work on SimBro will still go on.

Actually, no one ever said you had to stop, just hold off on submitting new ones is all. There's still an assload (and not a little skinny Calista Flockhart assload either, a whopping big ol' J-Lo assload) of Yellow girls, to say nothing of over 400 Black ones for whom, to my knowledge, no one has even looked for pics yet. Admittedly, a comparative few of them have been shuffled around from one list to another that you guys aren't aware of yet but that's still an awful lot of girls who need an awful lot of pics.

Still though, the girls' stats are just as important as their pics since we can't include them in the game without either one of them. Everyone pulled together to track down a ton of pics for a ton of girls, I'm both proud of and grateful for all the effort that this group has and hopefully will continue to expend in that capacity, and I hope that the same will hold true for all the other aspects of creating this game. You guys obviously can't help me fine tune the game model since I haven't finished it yet, but this is definitely something that can be done and needs to be done. So let's all pitch in and help Vava help me help all of us have a really great game to play, okay? Very Happy

I still check here somewhat-regularly. I'm making a little utility right now for the HaXe release done by fred u derf. Basically that release allows a "custom" game where you can then select a pure-text file to play by the parameters listed in that file. By modifying this text file you can add slaves, change stats, etc. So the utility I'm making basically allows easy importation of girls into this text file, by setting their name, stats, description, etc. You can also select images for sex pics, profile pic, and headshot without worrying about renaming or resizing the pics since that is done automatically. It's nothing big, but I've been playing around with it. I figure maybe it can be used to preview how images look in game or something. And it's basically the only thing I can do without being able to look at the source code.

Sounds cool, albeit slightly over my head. When it comes to the nuts and bolts, ones and zeros, Fred is the man to talk to because unless and/or until he tells me otherwise I'm still going to assume he's my lead programmer (once I give him something to program, at any rate). As for the source code, last I heard that had to be rewritten from the ground up since Pooolka's code was ... well, let's just call it 'creatively insane' and leave it at that. *snork*

I do want to disagree with you on one thing though, and this applies to Fred as well along with anyone else waiting to work on the more technical aspects of the game. I know how incredibly frustrating it must be to want to code something but have to wait until I can give you something to work with but there's really nothing graven in stone that says you're stuck sitting around doing nothing (or next to nothing) in the meantime. It's not like this is some big game design company where everyone's locked into their respective departments or anything, we're one big, albeit somewhat dysfunctional, family here and the more people who pitch in on the development stages the quicker we'll have something ready to be programmed. I want to make this version of SimBro reflect the opinions, expectations and desires of the fans who played the first two and I assume that you guys wouldn't be here working on this one if that didn't include you.

Vava has started a thread over in the Suggestions section for sussing out the stats, Traits, etc of the various girls who are thus far eligible for inclusion and everyone is encouraged to contribute to it. If that's not exactly something you feel up to doing for whatever reason (not everyone is good at that sort of quantification, after all), feel free to brainstorm ideas for things like missions/quests, random events, building upgrades or personal accessories for the girls. Those last two especially need all the input I can get for them since I had them both pretty well worked out until a massive paradigm shift occurred pertaining to how the girls themselves were being handled and made the whole thing unworkable so now I have to restart them from the ground up. And if all else fails, there's a huge list of suggestions and complaints that I'm trying to work as many as possible of into my game model posted on the other forum:

http://sim-brothel-v2.bigforumpro.com/t135-suggestion-collection

I could have sworn that I'd reposted it here but I guess not. Anyway, if none of the above strikes your fancy you can always peruse that list and maybe something else will get your creative juices flowing.

just wanna put this out there, but the whore master site (pinkpetal.co.cc) has a huge catologe I guess you could call it, of girls already, in the mod section of their site (no registration required), with over 10gb total of pictures.
otherwise, I'll continue to check back here, but can't be of much help.
hope things start moving faster.
