I just figured you would want to see the major edits to the game's appearance.
First is the house:
It was a hard decision to extend the wall to make the door to the back yard. I had to do it because of the new layout outside. Anyway, the bookshelf will be upstairs, so worry not!
Also note the new character sprite for our hero! :)
Next will be the outside of the house. It has been combined with another map.
Note the larger house and general area. The area stretches back where three more houses are built. Before, this was on a different map.
Next will be the other houses:
Some notable changes is that the Valitrov and Destiny house are significantly larger as well as it is loyal to the inside shape. Also, this area is right next to your house while the other one, you would have to cross another area to get to it. of course, this is only part of the map. It's a long map and it leads to the second housing district. Originally, it lead to a 3 way road.
Next will be the school.
Some notable changes here are the shape of the building and the decor. The shape of the building has become more realistic as far as the inside goes. Inside the school has also changed a little bit. One of the hallways is shorter than before and decorated a bit better.
Vietnamese and Thai Cuisine
One of the biggest Favorited past times in life simulations are cooking. So now, we're going to feature some food on every post! (I'm not going to live up to this one... am I?) And yes, I did draw these. It's a simple recipe. I think it will be done with oil and noodles.
So today we're going to talk about the noodles. Obviously, tons of things can be done with simple dry noodles, but here's one dish that is easy to make and fills you right up!
Fried noodles are a lovely meal in Vietnamese and Thai Cuisine. They typically add foods such as Veggies, Shrimp, Seafood, Beef, Pork and Chicken to the mix. I, loving noodle baskets, have made a few of these as a part of the mix.
Face set update
Not a heck of a lot of Drawing for CD has taken place. All of the Artist Canvas drawings are done with the exception of the people of the town and Max. Celestial Dance, I've finished Tai's child face, which leaves only Tyrone. Once this has been completed, I will be completing the Teen faces as well as the Hero's child and then on to the 'Other' people.
As far as colouring goes, I actually lost my tablet pen for a while and just now found it. I will be revamping some and colouring the beautiful child face of Anastasia.
The biggest aspect of Celestial Dance is the story that plays out behind those tormented and hurt by bullying. However, Every person in the town has a different story that eventually ties it all together. Here are some general stories that will be expressed throughout the game as well as the basic love stories:
Valitrov's woes: A broken family of four starts to break down as twins Anastasia and Andy can no longer agree. When the family gets a rude awakening, it becomes unlikely that the twins will ever reconcile.
Destiny Awaits: Max lived a beautiful and wealthy life with his little sister and parents. It isn't until an earth shattering event that Max allows pain into his heart and for once, his smile was there to mask his emotions.
Heart of Jade: Leo's life was fairly normal, living out day to day life with his father and their maid. Every night, Leo would be told about a beautiful romeo and Juliet love story. He soon will discover that these fairy tales were all too real and the secret to what happened to his mother is written behind the pages of his childhood.
SIDE STORY: There is darkness that lurks within this seemingly happy-go-lucky town. What is the true nature of the past tragedies and why have they happened?
Interesting Celestial Dance Fact of the Day
So we all know that Celestial Dance started as a test game to test scripts for other projects and evolved into a full blown project, but did you know that it has become partially based on my earliest project?
The file of my first project is titled: "Evening star" but became a parody of Harvest moon Friends of mineral town
"Harvest Sun: Less Enemies of More town." by Satsuma (Yeah, stupid I know... I was a kid then.)
Instead of being a female, you were a boy meant to court women of the town. It was supposed to be a harvest moon fan game, and therefore took place 60 years in the future in another town. The game featured a group of interesting girls as well as some other characters. The girls were:
Kana: The Mayor's daughter. Very hyper and weird.
Alice: (Yes, Alice.) The sister of Brandon and Kiwi. She was shy and always had her rabbit with her.
Midnight: the witch who was too nice to be a witch.
The harvest Goddess: Umm... self explanatory?
Aqua: I... don't even remember. Poetic maybe?
Rose: The dark and sinister girl.
Celeste: The sweetie
Mist: The frail girl?
And.... ready? READY?!
Kandi: The sugar sweet princess of the town
Tytannia: The sweet and happy-go-lucky blonde farm girl.
SO yeah... I was crazy. A lot of my character names were from this game. The Hero's name was Max. There were also murder mysteries. Gardinia, an older woman and Tytannia's Grandmother. She dies. YAY! -.-
Message to KuroNeko
I'm sorry >.< Don't worry about midnight haha she doesn't need the comments ;)
Basically, maps are the areas that the player walks around in (Like what I showed above with the re-vamps) And they were so difficult to work with. They were all over the place, and it would take me 2 minutes to find each map I needed to work on. Now it is organized so I can do it in 5 seconds. It's SOOO Much easier :) 75% of the world is complete.
Well, Akasha pretty much became Aris, so it doesn't matter XD I'm pretty sure they're the same :)
I'm sure I'll be able to finish up the game by the end of the year. I'm going so quickly ^_^ I'm so happy.
I'll be updating the AC website soon, and I'll message the dumbo about DR to update as soon as she can XD
Good to hear from you!
I'm a total dork who writes too much all the time because I like typing and I used to write novel-length stories and I'm just a weird person who does some things and breathes and stuff.
