This topic is pretty contentless. So what if it's gonna have awesome graphics? That doesn't give us much info on the Dmod at all. Or don't storyline, music and gameplay matter any more these days?

The missing punctuation and the use of 'wrighting' instead of 'writing' doesn't really encourage that thought, sorry to say.

Well, we'll see in due time how it turns out.

Yesterday it was an awesome skillful D-Mod and today it's a hmm...well...maybe?
That didn't take long.

Edit: I just noticed your profile. Can I ask what it has to do with Ged/Sparrowhawk? I didn't know he was evil...

I'm curious DinkMaster, what did you use to make the new graphics? Not MS paint I hope. I don't I could stand another D-Mod with loosely drawn MS paint BMPs since Secret of Amehoela, sorry.

"Nobody floods the board quite like you do, so you have no room to speak of spamming."

Hey, hey, hey! My posts make sense and most of them have meaning! dinkmaster11's posts don't make much sense. I mean, he sent me a private message a few hours after I went offline saying "Come on post!" or something like that. I don't like people sending me useless junk! I get enough spam in my inbox already!

"Not MS paint I hope. I don't I could stand another D-Mod with loosely drawn MS paint BMPs since Secret of Amehoela, sorry."

Actually, MS paint can make fairly decent graphics. I made some vomitting graphics of Dink throwing up. They look pretty decent. The vomit actually comes out of the mouth, it's different to the throwing up graphics in Mystery Island.

Ah, in that case my DMOD is 71.31681774445893 % finished.

I feel that this might not be totally representative for the amount of work that needs to be done...

You'll start with an epic and hardly have any ideas? Do you know how to script? It's harder than it seems, maybe you should start off with a romp so you get the skills you need for your next one

I agree with you Marpro it's beter to start from romp like me.Then do a quest.When you start to make an epic make a DEMO of it then when you improve your scripting skills finish the epic.When you'll start from epic you will get too many problems like:
-Hardness error
-Bad scripting
etc.

This is just my opinion, but I find that the map is really not a good representation of how far you are into finishing your D-Mod. Writing the story and all the hundreds of scripts is far more time consuming and takes a fair amount of effort (this is where I have trouble).

My suggestion: If you are new to scripting, play through Dink Goes Boating a few times first, keep a copy of DinkC reference handy, and then...

FOR ACTION SCRIPTS (ie. monsters, moving rocks, entering holes, teleporting): read existing scripts from Dink source, AGAE source, FB3 source, ect... and rework it to fit your own uses. This will save a lot of time, especially because these can be hard to script at first.

FOR DIALOGUE SCRIPTS (ie. npc's): I found these the easiest scripts to work with when you are just starting out. It is good to practice writing scripts like this, and the format is this: [void talk] { [freeze(1);][say_stop("'3blah blah blah", ¤t_sprite);][unfreeze(1);] }

REMEMBER: read lots of DinkC reference, it is really useful.

EDIT:

Thanks, but .5 percent means that you still have a long ways to go... good luck. I sure hope it turns out good.

Who cares if 0.0001% of progress is made? You will not be able to hype this Dmod, believe me on that. Go post again once you have some ACTUAL progress, not 0.0001%.

And I don't know how you calculated how much percentage is done. Because you never know .. you may end up making the D-Mod longer .. or shorter .. than originally anticipated.

"I'd like to be a tree..." 
This topic is junk! A prewiew should be like:

Dink's village is attacked by Goblins, and Martridge needs Dink to help him to fight off them, for example. Then tell about graphics and story more(if you want). And, it should be atleast halfway finished before sending a prewiew here, in the Dink Network.

Prewiew shouldn't be like:
It has new graphics and good story...

I suppose you haven't even started making this D-Mod, and now you tell us about it. I think you haven't done new graphics.

I'm very sure, this D-Mod will ever be released.

Please, next time you send a prewiew, tell us >!!MORE!!< about it! And I agree, that you should start from Romp.

BTW: Stop using these When you send a post, you send it only to show us the se.
