So, I haven't gotten much of anything done over the pass, oh, 6 days. I've literally been playing Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion pretty much 18 hours a day. That game is just plain fun. I spent a lot of my time just wandering around killing stuff. I decided that it was time to get back to work, so I went through finish the main quest line and now I'm back at it; expect some new screenshots (and maybe a demo) sometime before Monday.

In other news, I'll be attempting to make a fully-3D map editor for Malathedra. A lot of the stuff will still have to be done via external tools (heightmaps and what not), but I'll cram as much of it into the editor as possible. One thing that I am contemplating is allowing the user to load entities files and place the entities via the 3D editor. It'll make things far easier to deal with. We'll see though.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with MalykAI. A Super Mario Brothers style clone is what I originally set out to do, but I don't think I'll be able to do it right. I also think that a Megaman style platformer/shooter game would be more my style.

Oblivion has also made me want to work on my RPG a lot. But, I plan to finish MalykAI first, no matter what. I just need to decide what I want to do now.

I hope you do finish MalykAI. I thought it was coming along nicely last time I played it.

Just a suggestion, but if it was me I'd put the pixel work in to create my own central sprite rather than using the megaman one. It would make me feel the game was more "mine" somehow. Your pixel art skills are clearly up to the task judging from the graphics at the top of your journal.

Apologies if you have already done this since I last downloaded [smile].

Oblivion was my downfall, defiantly. I used to play that for 12-15 hours a day, and my character is only lvl 11, I smart lvl, where you get the x5 on your stats every time. Its the shiz. Its on the 360 though, so I cant show you a screenshot of my character. Just imagine a woman imperial in Umbra's Armor and Umbra's Sword. She is pimp, and I would date her if she were real!

Thanks, I'm glad to hear that you liked it. I do plan on finishing it, it's just that I'm at the point where I just want it finished and that's never good for the game. I don't know why though; it's a project I've always wanted to do and I haven't really had that much of a fuss during it's development. I also haven't been working on it very long; at least not as long as I have worked on other projects.

I'd love to do my own art for the game and I should probably try, but the problem is that I lack consistency when going from one sprite to another (unless I have some sort of template.) There's also the animating that I haven't had much practice at. I think you're right though; it'll probably make it feel more like my own too. I'll try that; I'll spend a couple days working on a custom sprite for the main character.

Thanks a lot for your input!
