Title: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: LafondaSaysMeow on June 12, 2016, 12:35:36 am
Hello, I am LafondaSaysMeow. I am really sensitive in saying personal information

So, now for the level.

Viridian and his crew are searching around the areas around the ship, when suddenly...
They find a strange dimension, that was giving off signals even  :vitellary: can't explain.
So Viridian decides to bring Violet to search around the dimension for a little bit.
However, they get distracted and don't come back for a while, so the rest of the crew teleport to find that they
have been teleported randomly again!
But there is a surprise awaiting the crew in this dimension...

Current Status: 3rd Area: Finished
4th Area: Finished
5th Area: Started (finally)
Everything Else: Not Started
Amount of :shiny:: 10

Here's a screenshot.

It will be a 20x20 digital dimension with internal scripting.

Do note that this release is only a demo, and there are only 2 areas so far. However, many more will be released later on. I only released a download here because everyone wanted me to.

-=CHANGELOG=- (For now, will be changed when level is fully complete)
Alpha 0.1 (Demo):
* First release, only two areas out of many

Sorry for the abrupt ending, I had to end this level somehow, and this felt like the best way to do so.
Meow!

Welcome!

After you save everyone, something bad happens. And there is a whole new adventure to be held. But it never gets better.
10/10 best
It will be a 20x20 digital dimension with internal scripting.
It's like everyones first levels have internal scripting.
Mine, ShinyKitten07s, yours... wow.
I have a level made already, but I don't want to post it because I think it is terrible.
No, seriously, it is terrible. It is not one of the worst, but I think it is bad.
Meh. Everyone has those bad levels.


Anyways, I am really looking forwards to this level!

Thanks for spoiling that.

It is really WIP. I have a whole area finished though... that is good.
Can you give screenshots of that area?  It would really make the thread seem much better.

If you've already learned everything from it, there's no real reason to, unless you want to share it so we can all laugh at it.

But anyway, I hope this turns out great.

Except this isn't my first level. My first level is the one I mentioned above.

and post what you have. If it is not TOO unplayable, I will gladly post one of my bugfixes.
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: LafondaSaysMeow on June 12, 2016, 03:32:44 pm
I would do that... but it is only one area.
I MAY or MAY NOT release an alpha later on, I haven't decided yet.
Idk if PM would work or not....  :verdigris:
If it is not TOO unplayable,
It works fine for now pretty much... just that for now you get trapped at a certain point

then put it on a .zip file and upload it on attachments. Trapped at the end? That's my bugfixes are for.

Post by: LafondaSaysMeow on June 12, 2016, 06:11:26 pm
I'm basically saying I don't want to upload the level yet because one area isn't much considering the fact that there are a few spoilers.
What version would it be? Alpha alpha?

(Oh wait, that is more than Alpha...)

Your trapped in the area because it is something I haven't made yet, outside the first area.
I'm just having problems with a sticky viridian on the roof.
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: Ally 🌠 on June 12, 2016, 06:23:33 pm
agh nobody likes sticky viridian on the roof
terry should release a patch to fix that gotoposition bug
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: LafondaSaysMeow on June 15, 2016, 01:19:58 am
Second area has now been finished, along with a new poll which will decide if I should release the first version (the demo) of this level.

I need to know so I can put in changes if people DO want it released.

(Oh, and I fixed sticky viridian on the roof.  :P)

gotoposition?
How did you fix it?

pls tell me im bad at IS
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: LafondaSaysMeow on June 15, 2016, 07:18:31 pm
Just add a ,0 after the first two coordinates. (a.k.a, the z that makes viridian go on the floor or ceiling). And yes, it was gotoposition.

Example:
Code: [Select]
gotoposition(236,150,0)
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: Ally 🌠 on June 15, 2016, 07:29:18 pm
YES
I CAN FINALLY USE GOTOPOSITION NOW
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: LafondaSaysMeow on June 15, 2016, 08:03:54 pm
Oh wow... the votes are EXPLODING! (er, kinda)
I guess EVERYONE wants it released (at least right now).
I'll close it tomorrow, since the votes are pretty much unanimous.  :viridian:

...Depends on how it would work.

It's almost about what would work better. Or it is.
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: SJMistery on June 16, 2016, 05:36:29 pm
you can just compress it on a .zip file and attach it lol
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: Ally 🌠 on June 16, 2016, 06:45:48 pm
So I will send you a .exe
Type in the password
Type U to upload and D to download
Then it will send you to a page
Click upload
It will send you the link to the uploaded file, and the link never changes so you only need to have one link.
Example:


I upload trapped with my uploader
I get the link
I send the link to a lot of people
I upload a new version with the same name
The link stays the same, so I don't have to replace the libk


Makes sense?

Yes... except for the password...
Makes me think this has something to do with a site i'm involved on, but I don't think I am.

Instead of using her site, I have made a dropbox tutorial for you to use. (I switched accounts halfway because the new one didn't have a valid email address and you need one to share links)

(Half reviving this thread, half giving some important info for the level)

Status update:
Third area: Complete
Phew... I will finally get to tone down a bit on the internal scripting for this next area. I'm thinking there shouldn't be that much. (I used at least 500 lines of code for the third area  :o)
For those of you wondering, I will not release the next update of this level until I finish the first part of the level, which will be 1.0.0. No more beta's or alpha's.
There will either be 3 or 4 parts of the level, depends on how much of the map size I end up using on the first 3 parts.
Here is a question I would like to ask.
Should I expand the introduction of this level? You know, like make a cutscene before you get to start moving?

From here on now, I will give no more images of the level and I will try to spoil no more of the story until the first part is finished and the level is released.

I was just thinking I wouldn't use nearly as much as the third area since I went insane then. I even put some in the area itself (before you find a crewmate). I'm still gonna internal script the area.

do it
I disagree.  The cold open is really nice, and adds an air of mystery to the level.  Though, make sure you deliver on this, Lafonda, and explain it all as you go through the level.

Now on the other hand, something I really hate about this level is that you have a tendency to have very, very precise flips, two standout examples being "Or Does It?" in the warp zone and "Jumpman" in the lab.  "Or Does It?" is especially cruel because, given the level's nature, it isn't obvious or even terribly logical that that's the way you go.
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: SJMistery on June 26, 2016, 09:43:25 am
PLEASE NEVER PUT A WARP TOKEN DESTINATION NEAR A WALL. Getting stuck constantly on them is not fair man.
Plus, include a warp token at the start of the warping zone so we can get out of the level if we enter by accident
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: LafondaSaysMeow on June 26, 2016, 01:46:25 pm
"Or Does It?" in the warp zone...
That I'm probably going to nerf.
And I MIGHT nerf "Jumpan" too... not sure...
And should "Brain Shattering Puzzle" be nerfed?

Getting stuck constantly on them is not fair man.
Wait... where is that? Oh, are you talking about "Warp Passageway" and "Correct Timing"? Yeah, I might try and fix those.

Plus, include a warp token at the start of the warping zone so we can get out of the level if we enter by accident
Ehh, I might either move the checkpoint or edit the warp lines so you can get out easily. But in the tight space your in, I kind of don't want to use a warp token.

Since I am already working on 1.0.0, I don't think I'll be able to fix these until that actual release.
Title: Re: Dimension Terminality [WIP]
Post by: SJMistery on June 27, 2016, 11:14:56 am
i know it's still on demo stage, otherwise i would have done it myself ;)

In general Warp Tokens can cause suffocation problems. ALWAYS remember to leave at least a 4x4 square, leaving one tile of free space on all directions, on the destinations. This will prevent the warp token from going drunk.

Status Update:
Updated the main page, now you can always see my status and see about when I will make the first official release!  :viridian:
4th area is now finished.
Some bugs and issues have been fixed.
Right now, I am very heavily considering how I should do the teleporters.
Should I do them the very complicated customifflag way?
That would take a while.

flag way.
its easy.
