Title: New Quest Pack ?
Post by: adimoga on April 14, 2011, 05:38:22 AM
It will be a new Quest Pack ? On irc channel you guys said that the old Quest Pack which is focused on Zelda will be remake for a Quest Pack which will be for making quests in general.

How long it will take to do all the changes ? It will be an log with all the stuff you do on this new QP ?

There will probably be a new, updated quest pack for OZ7, but we can't tell you when, since we don't know when OZ7 will be finished. We also haven't decided yet whether it'll be a Zelda pack or anything else.

Tell me what you want for your game. If there are sprites you need that are not in the current quest pack, you can rip them from the original Link to the Past rom. I suggest using Snes9X. It's very easy and doesn't take much time!

The way I figure it is, you can't have a new quest pack when things are constantly changing.
It's like getting half way through a game, finding out there's great new updates, and having to trash most of your work just to include these updates.

I like how we don't have to be limited to making everything just like it was in LTTP. Sometimes the fun part is creating the objects yourself to see how creative it can be. If everything is done for you, then it's not really your game other then the story and placement order.
So at this point, work with what we have or try to find something else to do.
Perfect time to learn how to sprite yourself and do some basic coding.
That way when OZ7 is released, you'll be ready to go.

http://www.thegaminguniverse.org/forum/index.php?topic=40452.0 < might help you on how to make a spritesheet.
Seriously though, you need to learn this if you ever plan on being creative.

KoH, didn't RedTeam already make it clear to you that entities will still work on the new engine?

Only if you don't want to take advantage of the new ones.
There's also some private discussions about the new coding going on.
This QP has a better chance of being finished as our team gets bigger.
