Welllllll Max first.
Next is Jet~
Just a little heads up to the honeymoon, I'm finishing Andy's events (Minus having Andy's face done.) For the honeymoon. I'm currently deciding the themes of each piece of dialogue.
Kyler- Whitty, Random, Cute and humorous (Complete)
Max- Romantic, Funny, Random, parody (Most complete)
Andy- Depressing (Omg I'm crying), fairly humorous (Started)
Jet- You see something into his personality... so humorous
Tristan- The front desk lady yells at him a lot. Funny for sure
Tyrone- Humorous and cute (romantic even?)
I think some of my favorite dialogue spans between Kyler and Max. I've had a few people laughing at them. I actually don't know how Andy's got so depressing, but it did. I don't think I can stand to listen to him...
Celestial Dance turned into a real game for me?
For a long time, I've seen Celestial Dance as a project... not a potential game for me to play... But that seems to have changed. I was testing out the crush system again to see what I had done with it, And after talking to Max I realized I had to go work on something else (Since the crush system is FLAWLESS~) So for the first time in a LOOOONG time, I saved the game and turned it off.
I know that seems stupid, but saving for me is never needed. I kept a save in the house so I can play as if I had just started a new day. This means that for a second, I thought I was playing someone elses game and made real game progress (Even though all I did was talk to Max and gush over his cuteness) So It's starting to feel like a real complete game now. It's a really great sign, because apart from dialogue, there aren't many more logistics things that I need to do. Events I need to test for, but everything is under control! INCLUDING the Child-preteen-teen transition points.
The Official favorite gifts
As documented by the game, I have assigned each boy a number. This number corresponds with another number which corresponds to an item...
...Confusing? Let me explain!
As I move closer to completing the gift giving system, I will be doing a lot of gift typing... this meaning that each set of gifts (For example: Flowers, Fried noodles, Ice cream) will be given a range of numbers. Each number within this range will correspond to an item of that group. This way, the system will be able to determine what the player is holding without having 200 different switches. There are only a handful of the CD items you can give, but still they are helpful all the same.
So... here's an example:
The number 6 corresponds to Max's favorite gift.
...It's not important.
What is, was the fact that I needed to make the OFFICIAL list of favorite gifts.
So, I'll give you the boys since those are finalized.
Aris: Mystic Quartz
Max: Otaku Fusion boxset- Shounen Edition (Interchangeable with Roxanne's favorite)
Andy: Noodle basket with Seafood
Tyrone: Otaku Doll
Tristan: Rainbow moonstone
Jet: Artists Canvas (lol)
Damion: Baylisk Flower
Kyler: Demolition Black
Gage: Beygoma Blade Boxset
Money Exchange rate
I will be using the Japanese Yen rates for CD, just because it's a larger number but falls well within my knowledge.
(1 Canadian dollar is around 100 yen)
So this way, I'll be able to calculate the PROPER price for everything.
The currency used in the pure lands is currently G or Gold, but it may change. Keep in mind that the pure lands are either in North America or Europe (Even though it's questionable.)
So, for example... A Teddy bear is around 12 dollars?
Got an allowance of 20 dollars?
All good? So a lot of items have been priced~
More lovely obcessions
YES I had a lot of fun with my references. Mainly the gifts are references of my various anime obcessions etc.
So I have the box set of all of my favorite shows as an item... but changed a little bit:
Wonderful Complex (lovely Complex)
Vampire Day (I don't like it anymore, but why not? Vampire knight)
Beygoma Blade (Beyblade)
Battle B-dakid (Battle B-daman)
Pocket Creatures (Pokemon/pocket monsters)
Siblings Conflict (Brother's conflict)
Then I have some dedicated dolls to the following characters:
Gray Michael Vincent (My darling from b-daman)
Kain Akatsuki (The only character I love from Vampire knight still)
Aido Hanabusa (Vampire knight dude that I no longer care for)
Kiriyu Zero (Another character I dislike from VK)
Cross Yuki (The main character that I don't care for from VK)
Yusuke Asahina (My baby from BroCon)
Tsubaki Asahina (The other one I'm in love with from Brocon)
Natsume Asahina (The other other one from brocon)
Fuuto Asahina (The one I hate from brocon lol)
Kaname Asahina (Brocon)
Iori Asahina (omg. He's awesome but scary from brocon)
Wataru Asahina (Cuuutie from brocon)
Azusa Asahina (The third triplet from brocon)
Lol too much BroCon. I'm adding more dolls, seeing as I'm making the general gifting system fairly obvious. SOME food can be gifted, while others... not so much.
For example, You can gift cookies, but not buns or tomatoes. Some cooked foods will be giftable, but due to amount of work I have to put into each item, some will not be.
Allotted Items slots
This is solely to give you an idea of how many giftable items are in the game. There are more items, but they cannot be gifted.
1-30 is currently all main NPC favorite gifts.
Currently, 31-100 are all reference items. That's 100 CEs that I have to make TT_TT Then onto Gems, Food and other gifts.
That means currently 31-100 items serve no other purpose but to give a gifts and achievements (Some you can eat)
But then again, CD items aren't very useful as a whole lol. Getting money to buy more pointless items. You currently have no hunger system, so basically having money is great to buy gifts.
101-110 will be video games
111-160 is dedicated to giftable food items (meaning there are only 50 items apart from the favorite foods that can be gifted.)
161-180 Is dedicated to gems and their produce.
181-184 will be special items such as Engagement rings
185-190 Will be for special items retaining to plot
191-200 will be remaining gift able items.
You would think I would allot more than 9 slots for beyblade, but shockingly, I didn't. Reason? The entire freaking game is a beyblade reference lol. (Not really.)
Common likes among characters
Who are you most like? Well, let's see and find out. Look up your interests to see who shares it with you.
Andy (Action, Sports, RPG)
Max (RPG, Action, Romance, Visual Novel, Life)
Roxanne (RPG, Action, Romance, Visual novel, Life, dating)
Tyrone (Action, Life, Visual Novel, Romance)
Jet (Action, Romance)
Kyler (Action, RPG)
Gage (Action, RPG, Visual Novel)
Roxie (Baseball, Basketball)
Tyrone, Roxanne, Max and Cindy are the primary anime lovers of the group. Cindy leans more to shojou, Tyrone to Shounen as the siblings stay in the territory of both.
Anastasia also watches Anime (As Referenced by her favorite gift.) She only watches shojou anime though.
Gage only watches shounen anime as well, but he's quite into it.
Jet watches the odd action anime every now and again. It's a constant joke that his probable anime preference is towards romance.
Willow doesn't really like anime, but she does like the OHSHC doll.
All of the characters have some degree of fashion added to their liking. They each have their own style (in the boys case, it's usually punk) but there are some who look to fashion a bit more.
Official Gift Giving Confirmation
This is just an official statement saying that gift giving is officially confirmed to work. The characters respond to each set of items depending on their tastes. They can be given around 200 different items, most of them difficult to obtain.
The boosts in friendship,however are significant. But, in the end... it won't buy you love. Personality and talking to them is the best way to go.
Remember, it's really easy to gain friendship, but it takes time to develop a crush on you. Love points cannot be obtained through giving gifts (That'd be shallow!) and can only be obtained through talking to them. After they have romantic feelings for you, it is then up to you to offer them the ring, but only after you have a high relationship with them.
This system is final and will be in the final cut of the game :)
THAT'S ALL FOR NOW
Gotta go and work on some university work TT_TT but I'll update when I get more done! So far the gift giving system is doing great! I'll update you guys from there!
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.
