    Phantasy 2018 Dev log: part II

    Tired of reading through 1000+ posts just to figure out what's changed in the last week? This is the place.   Here's the deal:  I need to record all this stuff so I can figure out what I actually changed.  If I don't write it as I'm making the change, I'll forget. I'm not writing here to say...

    Discussion, complaints, and everything else you wanted said put here:

    So that I know what I can skip when performing triage on my time.   We all get it.  I'm unhappy with some parts of the mod, and parts of the community are unhappy with me.   Deal with it.  There isn't a plan B.     In the meantime, my time doesn't need to be frittered away playing forum PVP. ...

    WIKI, from pure community efforts

      http://phantasycalradia.wikia.com/wiki/PhantasyCalradia_Wiki       thanks to Alexjff for doing this.   I understand the game needs documentation, I'm just in forest fire mode right now.   It would be easier to dive in with better documentation!     I often assume anyone here read all the...

    Rigale Guilds and learning walk through: intro to crafting

    I'll put some screen captures here and discuss them a little later.   If I take time to finish this I'll run out of time to publish v143 this evening, as I have other tasks waiting on me this evening...   In brief, crafting in Phantasy 2017 takes two forms: 1) old style is Berembert's arcane...

    Orc Necromancer with second class as Mage Walkthrough

    Here's a walk through for people that don't want to burn 5 points on entertainment and start as a cleric or paladin. Instead, we'll make an orc male, choose "travelling merchant" and "street urchin" character backgrounds, select "Necromancer" as the class   lust for money and power to get a...

    Walkthrough: 20 days Paladin Elf with Entertainment

    I wanted to take a moment to show how I personally would do this character, as a sort of template for "best practices":   In 40 days I gain level 6 with only 2 fights, one of which was by clumsiness, and along the way I equip a half dozen or more companions, gain a starting force, get horses...

    The state of the mod, and is it "Halloween" or "American Thanksgiving"...

        This is a question like "when will you finish fixing your house".  There's always something else to do, but one day you decide its time to live in it and the next project can take a rest for a few days.  The mod's not "done".  I know that, Guspav has told me that (although I don't let him...

    Bugs in Phantasy 2018

      I suppose it seems early to list bugs in Phantasy 2017 considering not many have access, but it is useful for me to know what is open and what progress is made on it.   I let 4 people I trust see it and one returned a long (20+) list of detailed errors.  I picked people not just because they...

    Pho II -- weekly blog with source* (or How to make your own fantasy mod)

    The subject says it all.   I decided all the sources I've seen either are missing too many features or have some fatal flaw in the old code, so it is time to start from the beginning and build a more robust code base.  I may as well show where each resource or topic is found, in as much as they...

    Open blog - developing Magic as open source using Rigale as a framework

      It's THAT time.   In essence, I can't open up Warsword Rigale, because it contains huge portions of Warsword Conquest.   I CAN open "Rigale", as it contains only stuff already open.   Opening the code allows some room for commentary, which also allows it to be a learning experience.   This is...

    Warsword Rigale release, bugs, comments, etc.

    Here's something to play with while waiting for more patches:   SUBMOD "Warsword Rigale", a Work in Progress that probably will never be "complete".   requires Warband v1.168; will not run on 1.158 and earlier.   make a copy of Warsword Conquest 2016  and then patch with this.   contains all...

    Whats cooking in the kitchen? What about .8 stuff?

    New week and less than a week till Halloween.   Weekends nothing gets done around here.   Did try different skeletons from Elven path and many tries stretching the human model for giants; generally I have to stick with human skeletons or the armors don't fit, at all.  I can shrink the skeleton...

    I can fly

      https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4sh7GRykLgEejJ3YjZHX2Vkbmc/view?usp=sharing   I know I know, Neo did better.  But it burned a lot of time just to get it smooth.   Gah its like 20 lines.  You wouldn't think it needed so much effort.   The exercise was mostly a concept test; I knew it...

    What I wish got fixed instead

    I'm happy that Perisno .76 is getting pounded heavily to find weaknesses but most of the issues were solved with patch r2; yet a week later people ask if they should actually patch.  No, they should probably not patch.  I'll point them to an unpatched Perisno .7 from a year ago and suggest that...

    Phosphor v21 r5 bug reports and discussion here

    I should start this by mentioning v21 series is closed alpha status, but once in a while I pick people from the community to test. If I didn't pick you yet its small wonder -- I have my hands full elsewhere and for now pick people that either dont pester me too often or I want to reward for...
