A Simple Quest (ASQ-Working title)

Time to get this finished since I started it before Furball (so thats 2+ years ago)!
Thought if I did a preview thread I would actually be shamed into finishing this one

Story = Dinks friend lost her parents and because of his male ego hes talked into looking for them, but of course its harder than he imagined. He has to feed the village folk, hunt a dragon and steal its eggs, comes across an annoying little girl, an enchanted sack, a grumpy old man with psychological er issues shall we say and has to briefly go through a corner of the underworld to help him on his way... wonder if he will actually find her parents in the end... oh what will become of him - poor wee DINK !

Updates:
I have deleted over half the map (for a second time heh)
Am condensing the areas so there is less walking for miles and more story and things to do (hopefully)and moving things closer with less blank screens to just walk through.
Mapping is 3/4 done (more to delete yet and some to rearrange)
First area totally finished (includes being scripted) and working fine, now to progress to the rest.

A *special* sequence started but still to be completed (no hints for that )

Other new graphics/sequences (minor). New mossy rocks and trees, eyes that blink when you walk thru a cave, added tiles for the mud flats and so on, LOTS left to do but this is supposed to encourage me not overwhelming me with whats left to do!

Sneaky Peak Some may have seen these before... but well just dont look if it troubles you

Gypsy Village

Mud Flats

Spooky Mine

New Monster using all dink sprites

New town

The mapping is superb, but I was already expecting that, so you don't get any extra points.

I demand for the rest of this dmod to be equally awesome.

Amazing locations! I also put a looot of focus on the mapping because it's the one thing that gives a d-mod a good atmosphere and you've nailed it. If you need help with any complicated scripting we're here for you

Gorgeous mapping.

It's always mystified me that so many d-mods are released with sub-standard mapping. This definitely won't be one of them! Great work.

I'm simply a distraction. 
You can't go overkill on mapping. You can kill it but not overkill that's a DN fallacy.

I object 
I love the title, makes me think of chores.

The mapping is, as always, nice and quite characteristic for you. If the storytelling is as good as it was in the past I have no doubt this will end up very enjoyable.

I think we can safely say this DMOD, like most, has been abandoned.

Hugs Abs, of course it hasn't - I have been quite sick the last month and a bit - been in hopsital etc but think I am coming right now.

This most definately hasn't been cancelled and you promised way back you would beta test when the time comes - guna hold you to it blossom. Nowhere near that stage now yet. Lets see if you are still here when its time.

I have been making graphics for others dmods as requested - and a couple of add ons for Shady for a couple of people.

What I have done to this since this thread started...
* Finished the "special sequence" graphics
* deleted the mudflats area and am revamping it as was too large and windy and wasnt condusive to fun playing
* Have completed condensing the map
* Made a new monster graphics and worked out the kinks in the scripts
* and because this is a kiwi made dmod - added sheep as well as pillbugs hehhehe
* made death sprites for the sheep and my new monster animation (looks quite in keeping with other dink monsters I must say)
* started the rest of the scripting in earnest - it is about 20% done
So while it looks like not a lot has been done - it is moving forward and the background stuff is slowly being finished

Spose thats anther year hahaha dont hold your breath but yes it will be done even if its shortened to a romp or quest because its a large romp size now.

Trying to use old dink sprites in a new way... hence Gypsy Village - these scenes not finalised yet -- some are a bit heavy on the graphics - fine tuning after completion enjoy.

I disagree. 
Insane screenshots. Have you ever considered to be an interior decorator? Oh, and I am just interested, what kind of gypsies are you trying to put in the game?

Hehe nope - I do like making graphics tho

Oh, and I am just interested, what kind of gypsies are you trying to put in the game?

The ones I made Bar people and Fatties are now gypsies -umm, because I said so lol.

Its just another area in my game before the dank and dark old gypsy mine area - as seen in the first lot of screenies (first post - graves and spiderwebs pic)- I try to make it look dinky but new and utilise old stuff in a new way... or not heh... that area is where the new monster goes and its not finished yet - doesnt quite look like i want it to...

But hey - thanks for the nice comments guys

You can always pass the torch to another Dinker, or get a collaborator to do some work, while you do the important stuff like eat cookies and listen to banana music.

2nd generation. No easy way to be free. 
These are some very promising screen shots, including the creative use of standard graphics and the addition of new ones. What wonderful places for Dink to explore these are!

I'm excited!

Let us know if you need scripting help finishing this one.
