added all the rooms descriptions, now going to code the various effects. For some I'll need to wait since need to ask Anima how to do it :mrgreen: but for 90% of them I'll have no problems.
Also if someone wants to help, here are the texts I wrote for the shopbuilder screen:

Upgraded bedroom must be necessary for upgraded romances.

Haha, if was a less serious game, would be fun. "You need a bedroom level 2 to sleep with Lair" :mrgreen:

For the following I'd use a word like "items" instead of "recipes": Metalworking, Woodworking, and Jewelcrafting.

(As always, NOT meant as an attack of any kind, simply a suggestion.)


Gotta know, Jack: approx. when will this be out??? :)

Still aiming at the beta towards end of month :)

Edit: I'm thinking to code all the "young age" features first, and maybe make a sort of demo of that part. The adult age is more complex since has more activities and the shopbuilder thing. I also am missing some coding from Anima to do some tasks, so in the meanwhile I will "put together" all the plot events of the young age, so at least that part is finished.
I think by the end of next week I should have this sort of demo, and maybe if Anima manages to code the remaining stuff, a "full beta" at end of month :)

Regarding VN Mode, I don't think will be possible to add it to this game, since to complete the main plot storyline successfully you need to craft a "special cure" item. What I can do though is have different difficulty, and in the easiest one you can make progresses much faster, so people who don't like/care about the crafting/sim gameplay can skip through it faster :)

Anything to make it easier to finish romances quickly once you've done the ones you really, really want... especially with all the variations you'll have in this game.

Well regarding that there's a simple trick though. ALL the "romance events" (they're not really romance, more like getting to know each character better in the early years) of young age need to be played. Then, the 5th scene of each character is a "tough choice", that affects the 6th scene, but if you save just before that, you can use that save as starting point to unlock ALL endings.
If you manage to stay neutral enough you could even save at the beginning of the adult age.
But maybe I'll just provide a way to skip to a good starting point after you beat the game once. If I can't do a full "VN Mode", at least some way to quick replay the game :)

So each tough choice will involve all the characters at once? Am I getting that right?
