So, I’ve been playing with Graphics Gale and Pixen, and basing it on the RMXP Mine Town interior design, I’ve made some horizontal pipes. I don’t expect to be releasing a full set, as the intent of designing these pipes was for use along control panels and other mechanical components- all of which have yet to be made. Included thus far are variants with one ring (on either side), and two connector rings on the segment, and shadowless pipes for use as ceiling parts.

Unlike other content that I like to post, these pipes are not covered under Creative Commons. The terms of use for these pipes are the following:
-You must credit Tensei/seitensei/天青/阮天青
-You cannot redistribute this image this image to others for use
-Your game must be open and unencrypted



[RGSS3] Map Name Processing

Map Name Processing
Version 1.0

While I’m working on my project, which contains a relatively high level of customization, I came to a grinding halt when I found out that RPGツクールVXAce’s built in map name display would not process similar to message text. A small edit (without touching the default script, to preserve compatibility), and I’m back on track. This is also my first released snippet.

Paste this script in a new section under 素材.


Tablets as a productivity tool

As an aspiring game developer, I find that tablets are one of the biggest key components of my workflow- Just only graphic tablets, like my Wacom intuos4, but also my Asus Eee Pad Transformer. A tablet is easy to carry around, and in general, has a longer battery life than my laptop- Coupled with the built-in cameras, and apps like Sketchbook Mobile, I can do quite a bit of work away from my computer, which is especially helpful on longer trips (flying between the United States and Japan), and just being out and about in Tokyo.

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer has an external keyboard dock, which I own, that makes it a viable tool for writing out ideas, and scripting away from the computer, and as my tablet lacks a 3G connection, it often serves as a good way to force myself to work when I’m away from home.
