Okay I had a major problem with my game that spilt into further problems. I found it terribly hard being that it was sci- fi and finding an RPG maker that was Sci- Fi.
Step 1: Look for a compatible program that fits the picture
I tried using a variety of similar programs that were FREE because money for University students does not come really that easily. I tried using a free program that is both given to Microsoft 10 and Xbox One users which is called Project Spark. Even though it was a free and easily adaptable game to create and build your own world you had to keep playing to grow your experience to unlock new features which began to piss me off. So I created my character but my map did not look too crash hot.
Step 1 Part 2: Look for something again
My boyfriend kept telling me to look into such building games as Sims and Gmod that we already had however I did not want to be a cheat in Gmod and Sims also seemed to only be good to make your character rather than the layout of the game. So back to the drawing board and went into Minecraft.
Minecraft is a great way to make and build your game from scratch which I wanted. Even the capability to capture mods to make it look sci – fi made it that little bit better however my next problem had to happen too soon and that was timing. So fitting 4 – 5 days a week work plus university and everything to deal with in my house got the better of me. (However I will still continue to maybe build my minecraft world to show off)
Step 2: Just make something different instead of overcomplicating things
I decided because of how over the top I thought of my game that I just did not have the time or even the capability to grow with my game so I changed it. Due to my game being very story based I decided that maybe making a Dungeons and Dragons versions would be heaps sick. I would continue to build on my Trailer/Radio piece but also add in say a chapter of a story to capture the audience to really consume themselves in the experience.
So this was all my problems to do with the design aspect of the game. Funny enough that it did push me back a hell of a lot. Because I did want this to be similar to a first person shooter or point and click game but that game now seems too out of my reach.
