Enough of the girlie stuff

I seem to have a bee up my bhind today – you get days like that. I blame the weather. Didn’t we used to make fires to burn old garden debris this time of year? I really want to shift the last stuff I need to deal with into heaps and… yes, well you get the idea.

Still on the subject of TWoFB. Now that I’m done pussyfooting about it’s a hobby, it’s education, (it’s labelled, now go away), plus I’m too feeble and stupid a person to possibly etc. I’m just going to tackle it’s uhm what that word? When you copy something and only change it a bit. Derivative? And I bet it’ll be Wurm it’s meant to be derived from.

Well, I already have a Wurm tx. So, no. Players able to change environment I’m doing for sure, but it won’t be terraforming terrain. At least not in the first part of the trilogy and only later if it suits. That won’t be central at all or even of interest for a long, long time. In fact player adaptation of vast area-type terrain there will be zero of in part one. Heh 🙂 Hard to find the exact right words. It’s there but…

If I can’t get plants to grow on the other hand, I probably cancel the whole thing so there will be that kind of dirts. Hey this teasing business is fun!

So yes, I want it out there. Trilogy, no terrain-terraforming in part one anyway (but another kind of player/environment adapting), plants growing. Crafting, defo, housing for sure, pvp no (mebbe do one later, later, later), and a few other littel fireworks, to spice things up (did I just say that?????) Plenty to keep a body busy. It won’t look or play like Wurm. It’s not Wurm. I have a Wurm. Wurm is doing fine 🙂 and you won’t evah find me on the forums hoiking my goods. I want Wurm as an escape thanks, a somewhere else. At the moment it is my main game that I like to play to relax, something separate from everything else, different, where someone else (Rolf) takes the load. Without that difference, it won’t work for me so I have no interest whatsoever in replicating it.

Combat probably not twitch, but hehe not millenial either – and thar will be Magic! I think. Long before anyone is invited in, should we get that far, there will be single-player bits that I might send into the world. Spin-offs. To try stuff.

And that’s my vaporware set out. It might be this environment never sees digital public feet. More likely friends and family. We’ll see. The process! Is what I want to enjoy and describe.

I’m keeping the feely weely stuff on this blog, but moving copies of all associated posts/pics/details to its own blog so they are all in one place when/if I get around to websites. Ok.
Oh. And TW stands for “The Wilding”
And PlanetGardenShed is a completely unrelated entity where I just mess around and try things.

In search of PlanetGardenShed

A thing unexpectedly fell into place, resolved and ceased to be such a huge drain on my time (well, while it evolves for now on someone else’s watch anyway – after that it will be back to me in another form for another while).

And a personage recently informed me that anything you do can be creative. So true. However I will not be spending my blessed, shiny, rescued hours arranging the potatoes in interesting patterns or pretending I’m happy doing some other endless repeating task, noes, I’m going for the motherlode!!!!

… mumble mumble…. woolly hat, thermos…. hamster…

for I need a planet to call my garden shed. Yes, TWoFB is off ice and moving forward for as long as this amazing windfall of time lasts. Don’t know if you read the Vague Plan, but it’s learning the tools where we’re at in the process.

I also intend to give the whole game project its own proper website at some later date (much later), where it can grow in a shape that suits. This blog is more my fun thing and things I’m interested in and that affect me get a mention (including the process of making a game), but I don’t sell anything here


Hmmmm Hmmm… dunno…nice though

Bananplt PlanetBanana!!!

Errr  oooh….errr, maybe not

Hmm Possibly….

My spaceship could do with some Zazz don’t you think?

Whatwhat What? What’s wrong with it? Tch….young people…. really….. grumble…..

MumIpod  Hehehe 🙂 Here’s the real one 🙂

But I still I need a nice flat place to build and store devjunk – and time is waning.

Here I think.

Well that’s it for now, out of time.

We’ll camp for tonight in the Mum I: Hobo Class, Series 1 and make for those hills I spotted some time soon. Someone unpack the lucky procedural cloud. We’re here.

(That was us practicing skydomes (Blender) and gradients (Gimp) with some uv mapping and (by meee) box modelling.)
