Whether it be info on the game mechanics, screenshots, or announcements.

Also from time to time i will propose an idea to implement into the dmod.

And i will ask all of you to vote on whether you think i should do it or not.

For instance heres one:

Morality system Yea or nay?

I thank you for your help guys Go ahead and vote ploize!

I object 
I agree with Kyle here, only use a new system if it is going to be significant. A bit of a loose system that doesn't add anything is more a problem than a feature. Try to keep the amount of systems you use limited.

Whether or not you should use a morality system? Well, if you've got to ask, perhaps not. Such a system can work, but only if you are convinced it works. If you have to ask I fear you're not as unstoppably enthusiastic about it.

I like that you're asking for early feedback, but understand that it's hard for us to know exactly what you have in mind for your d-mod. A morality system that has impact will most certainly mean that there are different paths the player can follow, characters that will act differently depending on your choices, etc... When I hear morality system I think of games like Dragon Age, Mass Effect, The Witcher, ... Those games all have in common that they're big in scope and it might be hard to pull of A) in a d-mod and B) by yourself :/

If you can make it work though, you'd be the first in the community to do it
August 13th 2012, 07:17 AM
duckdie.gif
But if the morality system actually has any impact on the game, you'll have a lot of scripting to do.

It doesn't seem too difficult to implement some sort of basic morality system. Where it gets interesting is if you're going to take a fable approach on it. Where the character can look like an angel or a demon, then you'd have to implement a lot of new graphics.
OR
you could do something like;
if(&moral == 25)
{
///turn dink into slayer
}

if(&moral == -25)
{
///turn dink into dragon
}

But, if it's just going to change the ending, then don't worry about that.

It would involve a choice menu at every story checkpoint. Which actually would be very fun, and I plan on trying that myself sometime, I had started something like that in moon child, but only barely.

I think if you took your time with a morality system, it could be really cool.

I think the main problem with a morality system is that it often turns the characters and the overall plot into a "Good or Bad" worldview. I don't like it when characters are portayed 100% good or evil. I like me some grey

Yep, ill tell you guys what, ill finish making the game and if i still have motivation by then, ill try to put a morality system that would make DN history!
Shouldnt be too hard right? Goin back through the dmod and editing for the system?

Thanks you guys. Im not sure if you realize how much help youve been

No, that'd be pretty hard actually. If you're going to do a morality system, you have to set yourself up to go for it from the beginning. You'd have to have some sort of choice menu at every part in the story.

choice_start();
"Give item, expect nothing"
"Give item only for information"
"Say you'll give item for information, then destroy item"
choice_end();

There'd be something like that for everything. It's not something you can go back and add in.

Looks really good, especially the mapping. I just hope you didn't take the screenshots of the only two good screens.

I don't think you should ask other people what to do with your own D-Mod. It's your Mod, so if you want to do it, then do it. Besides, it won't be as fun to us when you release it because we'll know what's going to happen. It'll also give you more strength to finish the D-Mod because you'll get to express your own ideas in your D-Mod, instead of ours.

Ironically enough though I was serious about this one, unfortunately the laptop I was using to make it broke down, losing the data forever...

I now have a new laptop sporting windows 8.which basically makes it difficult to do ANYTHING I want to do. I mean I couldn't even play sims 3 on it without having to go through numerous property settings!
So my dmod making is on hold till I figure out how to run dink on it.
