Nah, between full time work and part time school, I don't really have the time I used to to work on those things.  Sorry.  Could you link to where the design guide mention was?  Odds are it's pretty old, and I might have a very different approach now...

How will you integrate Neutral, Sol, and Luna into the class system?  What would dictate a class focusing on Neutral spells over Sol or Luna spells?  Do you have a kind of systematic approach to it, or do you go for the "gut feeling" sort of approach?

That's Salanewt.

So... both of the things I asked?  How does that work?

My apologies, must have misread it.  I see it now.

How do you plan to implement the fundaments exactly?  How does one become capable of casting Sol or Luna spells?  Or are they not aligned to spells themselves, but to general traits of spells?

For the mystic element, I was trying to give each element a spiritual type subelement, I admit it isn't the best of categorizations. To be fair, as far as I know, mars is the only element that uses it's patron animal in standard psynergy.

And as for healing, I gave it divinity because mercury healing is by far the best and deserves its own category. Also I thought I could give it themed psynergy, like a prayer to call down a smiting on your enemies.
So what will you do about the limiting factor that places mercury under?  Wouldn't an entire sub-element dedicated to a single type of spell, while those types could be freely placed in other sub-categories in other elements, lock down Mercury to 3 sub-elements +healing, while the other elements get free reign with 4 full subelements?

Besides, the first post makes it abundantly clear what the topic is actually about.
Here is a motivational message for you!

Feel free to discuss how you keep yourself motivated in life, because I know I can be awful with it sometimes! :P


Yours truly, Dendrophiliafish_the_skull_licker_xxXXDx101XyeahbabyyeahxxXXxx_2_the_Mounties_strikeagainxXX5
It's not about the motivational message, it's about him bragging about the name.  The rest of the conversation stemmed from that in a natural flow.  Me lamenting that this is what my life has become, where I am trapped with a bunch of people who some think that's somehow funny or acceptable, but doomed to be the villain and treated as such if I dare try and say he should have a normal screen name. 

Then there was talking about the name again.

Then more discussions about about "why is this/meme culture/absurdist humor even a thing?", etc.  Never really was about motivation, nor was that the intent given the first post.  Maybe he just wanted the conversation to go in a different direction?

This topic has a topic?  I thought it was just about wagging that giant di- name around and showboating.  And won't you get yelled at for minimodding?  Or am I the only one who gets yelled at about wanting topics to stay on topic?
9  General Hacking / Project list / Re: The Golden Sun fangame to end all fangames (hopefully) on: June 19, 2017, 08:24:30 AM
Okay... what about the redundant subelements then?  How is flames different than dragons made of flame?  And the subelements that consist purely of healing for one, but healing falling into other subelements for other elements (ex:  Cure, Aura, Boon, etc)?

It even feels like Kain is annoyed by being bothered by stuff going on here.  I wonder if he'd even be upset if Adminship got transferred to you guys?  If anything I think he might be happy it's not interrupting his gaming time.
11  The Community / Open Discussion / Re: You are beautiful on: June 19, 2017, 03:02:31 AM
I'm not answering that.  I'll get yelled at and you know it.

And steam explosions are geysers aren't?  Seemed like the obvious way to go to me.  I trust you've already re-assigned the various acid abilities to be Mercury instead of Mars then?

Oh... also ice lasers, because ice can make prisms, so you can straight up have ice-based light attacks.
Oh, also powerful waves, because water and stuff.
Oh, also the unfathomable depths of the abyss, because oceans be scary yo.
Oh, also cursed mists and haunted fogs.
Oh, also those mists that aren't actually vapor but are totally ice and you wind up breathing in ice and it destroys your lungs... that's a real thing too.
Oh, and water lasers, because that's also a real life thing.

Plenty of cool stuff you can do with Mercury, and with all elements.  Just need to think creatively.  Also, seriously - check some real world stuff out about Ice, Water, Steam, and related weather phenomenon.  There's some crazy stuff out there.  Here, I'll get you started:  Look up "Pycrete".

Hell, if anything acid's gonna cause more problems here.  Stuff's tough to work with in comparison.

Great.  I get to pick between the place with a strange sense of humor, the place that hurt me personally, the place that was ungrateful, the place that embraces the meme culture I distaste, and the place that's run by guy who are never here but should be run by the guys who have senses of humor I still have trouble with.  And reddit.  I guess that's a choice too or something...

Nice to see me here?  Uh... thanks I guess?  (I think I was the sixth member to sign up here or something super early like that...)

Noticed you assign Acid to mercury.  You gonna change the elements of Acid Bath and Acid Bite then?  Acid's Mars in vanilla.

What I'd give to find a GS community that shared my sensibilities and tastes...

Fox: romhacking changed their appearance? A little bit.  Interesting...
June 25, 2017, 08:29:25 PM
Fox: Not as bad as a "HP to 1" hit... unless it kills you in one hit... but yeah, basically.....
June 25, 2017, 07:34:34 PM
Eon713: Toxic works similarly, first turn= 1/16 damage, 2nd 2/16, 3/16, etc. After a while you literally cannot survive the damage even at full health
June 25, 2017, 05:28:05 PM
Fox: With stacking support. ... So might be different numbers.
June 25, 2017, 04:58:36 PM
Fox: *Looks up* ... I suppose that could work. I had in mind that the damage would be greater than that max HP possible after like....  10? turns. So....random numbers:  5 10 20 40 80 160 320 640 1280 BOOM! (>2000)
June 25, 2017, 03:02:53 PM
Eon713: like toxic from pokemon?
June 25, 2017, 02:14:33 AM
Fox: @early stages = Small... or even no damage at all
June 25, 2017, 02:08:11 AM
Fox: Hm. Random thought of a mechanic like a poisonous snake bite. = Starts out with small damage... and if not treated, does big damage... In real life, waiting a long time makes the *poisonous* snake bite look really nasty, I believe. Or maybe that was some reality(?) tv I was watching once a long time ago....

Fox: Ooh... Salanewt's name is back! Hi Salanewt's name! And hello to you as well Salanewt! ; And yeah, SMF (and name) has been amazing.
June 24, 2017, 07:36:19 PM
Salanewt: Aw, RIP one of the best names this site has ever seen. It was time though!
June 24, 2017, 01:47:25 PM
Fox: 1pt text is great, yeah.... Meanwhile, I start feeling like I want to document GS2's MFT stuff. - Especially listing which file uses which compression format... to kind of get a sense of how gsmagic _could_ work.... Er....
June 23, 2017, 02:25:42 PM
Seto Kaiba: you know I miss how SMF is almost dead now because having 1pt text to hide my true feels was perhaps the best part of web 2.0
June 23, 2017, 04:19:13 AM
Fox: Alright. Sounds good.  I agree it does seem a bit silly.  Sounds more of an April Fools type of thing. (Maybe having an ability for people to change their names limitless times specifically on April Fools is an idea.)
June 23, 2017, 04:09:25 AM
Kain: Sala asked me about the name, I thought it was silly but agreed he could have it only for a week.  Tomorrow his name goes back to Salanewt.
June 23, 2017, 03:29:10 AM
Fox: And yay! Atrius is back! Thanks for the reply. Somehow I didn't notice the recuriveness before.
June 23, 2017, 03:25:29 AM
Fox: @ridiculous name for a week =  Hm? So, how many characters would you say should be the maximum to have a name "permanently"... or better yet... How many characters can a name have on registration?
June 23, 2017, 01:00:50 AM
Atrius: @Javi3, Lo siento, ya no tengo tiempo.
June 22, 2017, 08:57:37 PM
Fox: @conundrum = Think about 8/16/32 bit aligned address, and what that means... Etc.
June 22, 2017, 08:55:23 PM
Fox: @Space manager thought for gsmagic = What a conundrum... Whelp... I'll just do whatever.... Probably would waste more time thinking about preventing bugs than coding anyway. :P
June 21, 2017, 09:30:34 AM
Fox: Because he quit a long time ago and has other priorities?
