I understand that this is a touchy subject, but I have been touched by an eating disorder in various ways whether it was through a friend or first hand.
The only thing really mentioning any eating disorders in this is Anastasia's event. even so, it's mildly hinted.
So our update will go like this today:
1. The newest facesets drawn
2. My bad... +fix
3. Fishing/Mining/bug catching
4. Maps this update
5. 'If he is my world, then what IS a world?'
6. Your special treat (apparently your second one)
7. Added foods
8. Midnight's message
9. My message ^_^
10. The mining in detail
11. Site updates
1. So as my life drags on this summer, I've been playing a lot of pokemon and harvest moon. A little inspired by harvest moon again, I began drawing (I was away and I didn't feel like working...) and my little cousin comes up to me begging for a character. He has a low voice for a kid... TRUST ME. So even though he may sound like a teen, it's goon enough.
I drew Ace, his character with him. He's the age of Tori, Pearl, Onyx and Roxie and is the future love interest of Tori. He is a non-stereotypical skater and he is kind yet can be a little off at times.
Other than that.. I've had to restart Max. It didn't go too well with him...
2. Do you guys remember the codes I gave you last update? Well.. I did two things wrong with them. The first thing I did was forget to update the page and delete them... And when I finally did delete them, I managed to forget to copy them down... SO... I fixed it! I'll put them up for another three days and keep in mind that these are different codes and they will give different items. SO KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS THE ONLY TIME YOU CAN GET IT!
3. Fishing/mining/Bug catching is right now being worked on. If you have your tool equipped, you can easily catch a bug or a fish or even get an item from the mine. It's being worked on HARD right now... Next to scripts for the voice actors (Which is annoying me right now) I'm needing serious help with that and drawings...
Anyway. I'm currently trying to draw the bugs for them to fly around. I'm wondering what I need. Dragonflies and butterflies... that's all I got. For fish... I don't know much about them. I know about Salmon, rainbow trout, halibut etc.... but only from playing harvest moon and animal crossing and eating fish haha.
As for mining, I've been working on the map and just mentally sketching it out. The rocks will contain items such as scrap metal, gold, silver, emeralds, daimonds, sapphires, black opal, white opal, fire opal, amethysts, rubies.... and the list goes on. I LOVE ROCKS so I know XD
[Editing from the time I started post]
Mining system has been completed. Like Harvest moon AP, there are two types of rocks. You get different items per rock and unfortunately, I had to somewhat use harvest moon's refining system. More on the mining system will be below.
4. So the only important map I made is the Mine. It's currently being worked on... Nothing special. There is now an added doorway which leads to the deeper mine where you can find flowers, a place to fish and another passage which is blocked by a rock.
5. EVENT: Anastasia opens up about her feelings for her twin brother. She says that her mom always told her that Andy should be Anastasia's world. Anastasia begins to question what a world is, because if Andy is her world, her world is a living nightmare. soon after, she admits that she loves Andy but wishes he could pay more attention to her. She says that she enjoyed the fights between her parents and looked forward to their divorce because she believed that she would be with Andy without the interruption from that 'stupid man'. Anastasia begins to cry saying she wants her brother back. She confesses about her starvation and she wishes that she could take it all back. She only wants her brother back.
6. So.... this treat it's not so great... >.< It's a really sloppy drawing I did of the characters. I SWEAR I will do better for the face sets... but I'm a terrible artist either way.... It's the poster for CD and features 4 of the main characters of STT. It will appear in the game at some point, but I figured you guys could take a look at my fail...
Andy didn't turn out well, and nor did Max. They'll look better in the game. This was a speed drawing and a quick colouring too. I personally love Gage. He looks so awkward in this picture ahahaha
Yes this is hand drawn XD
I'm loving Max's slippers XD
7. I've added Sushi and more cakes for Kuroneko :)
We've also made a few more fish dishes and meat dishes as well as some veggies :D
8. Midnight told me earlier to thank Kuroneko... but in this message she's just got some stuff to say.
"Thank you everyone for your support once again.
Just if you'd like to know, I'm back on part time to shift the tide, and I'm doing the drawings for the items while Roxie is doing the face sets. Sorry for the short message, I've got to go.
9. YAY MESSAGES FROM ME!
Yeah, I'm sorry... I've been writing and WRITING it for ever. It's sooo difficult. I should have it done soon!
-DONE! Just for you ^_^ Birthday cakes, chocolate cakes... we have it all XD
- I really do! you're the inspiration I have to keep going! It's nothing special!
-Hahah Good ^_^
- I'm still editing it, and I'm going to wait until I have a few done to reveal them. But I promise I will :D
- I KNOW! His life is really sad, and it gets worse, but he still manages to smile ^_^ You can marry 4... tough choice, but I'm sure you'll get through it!
- It's not as sweet as some girl's voices... I don't like it. but thank you ^_^ You'll be hearing a lot of it! Thank you ^_^
- Thanks again ^_^ And Jabari is Tristan's voice actor XD
- She didn't have time to respond, but she appreciates it a lot ^_^ She's been SO BUSY. She wishes she could respond, but she can't. She's decided to slowly come back on the team, so it's great!
-Uhh you're going to hate the face sets... they're terrible :S
10. Mining is a simple task that will get you far in the game with money... if you're lucky.
There are two types of stones:
In the Stone, you can find GOLDORE, COPPERORE, SILVERORE OR NOTHING.
In the Crystal, you can find RED ORE, BLUE ORE, BLACK ORE, PURPLE ORE, GREEN ORE, WHITE ORE OR NOTHING
For the Crystal, you have a 50% chance of finding something as for the Stone, you have a 3 in 5 chance. However, these ores are worth next to nothing and them being sold won't even get you an ice cream cone. You have to refine them... unfortunately the chances of getting something worth your time is fairly unlikely. If you get a gem from the ores, it is guaranteed that it would be worth a fair bit of money.
What you will see is three slashes which will smash the rock. The rocks will reset each time you enter the mine area... hopefully...
A video of the bug catching system, mining system and fishing system is going to be up soon <3
11. As you can see, our logo has been updated... I think we're better off with this one for now. I'll be making a new one later. On the current header, the girl you see there is the current version of Alice's sprite. Using a template, I drew her hair and her dress... I'm working on it... I'm a terrible spriter and artist.
That's it! Later guys!
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.
