On Critical Hits

I haven't talked about Witness To Unity in a long while, or posted on here. Maybe I should do that.

This is going to be a short one though, since I don't really remember the process behind developing this code. I just want to comment on it because I quite like this concept.

Coding the save screen somehow wasn't frustrating?

Here I have a collection of save screen screenshots, showing progression of my code and how it makes old saves more and more incompatible. ... well, maybe not quite like that. I was working on what stuff is saved, so of course in this case things got a little weird looking.

Welcome to the wonderful world of RGSS3: Adventures With A Mini-Map Script

I recently finished a collection of world maps/designs to a point. These maps would appear on a location screen which I have yet to code, but they also served to get an idea of the layout of those worlds and plan things around them.

These are things that I should probably have done earlier, but I am focusing more on the experience or gameplay at the moment more than the story. That's a good thing, isn't it?

Forgetting About Witness to Unity

I have neglected to touch on Witness to Unity for a while due to losing motivation when I got stuck in a difficult stage of production. This happens often. This is the most common reason why I will stop working on one project and decide to work on something else. The other times are usually inspiration distracting me from my train of thought.

Sprites are hard, I am not that kind of artist.

However I have been getting other things done and out of the way, like the 20xx character designs. While the story isn't finished (or started), I have reached a nice and tidy stage with it. Witness to Unity is not in such a state on the other hand. I have a long list of things I need to do, or fix, or whatever else, because I keep leaving threads hanging and wondering where I am.

Intelligent Enemies

So there were several problems at hand with what I wanted my monsters to be able to do in Witness to Unity. Some of it came down to the limits of the program I chose to use, but a lot of it seems to be because I'm still pretty dumb when it comes to programming. Oops.

RPG Maker VX Ace is not very flexible about making enemies. I wanted to make my enemies smart about the targets of their skills, choosing the right target to heal conditions, apply them, or exploit elements.
