Out With The Old

I have been wanting to update certain scripts in support of an upcoming theme-related update (and before you ask: I am sorry to say that it is not subclass-related).  This weekend, I was able to commit some time to updating two scripts, which involved retiring some old technology on which the scripts relied.  I also added some exciting, cool new features (and that is a very biased opinion on the features), and developed one new script to work in conjunction with these older scripts.

I still have a little work to do on these scripts.  They work just fine, and the enhanced functionality of these scripts could lead to a fun, quest-filled themed update.

Something To Do

I was surprised (and pleased) to hear this recent, spontaneous sunstone exchange:
Foster Finn thinks, "anyone around town? Just hanging around with nothing to do."
Eirian Caldwell thinks, "go on the newspaper quest"
Natas thinks, "newspaper quest!"
Xenos thinks, "try delivering a paper"

The Exclamation Point

The past several days have been a lot of fun for me.

Last Friday evening I was working in my GM office, compiling a punch list for my V756 deliverables, when another GM stopped by.  We started chatting about a project on which we were working together.  The chat slowly morphed into a teleconference: a collaborative assembly of the project components which lasted a little over four hours.

This was a new — and very positive — experience for me, as I typically assemble my update materials alone.  It was great to have a collaborator ask and answer questions: do we have these files ready?  Did we include this NPC?  Do we have all of the artwork that we need?

Collaborating with this GM has added an exclamation point to an already fun project.

Late to Bed, Early to Rise

Tonight is my deadline for V756 content.  After I eat a late dinner, I will begin organizing my submission materials.

This has been a long week for me, and tomorrow is going to be a long day (14+ hours).  I really should get to bed early tonight — I can not afford to stay up late — but I know that I will because I simply love Clan Lord too much.

I'm looking at some of my submission materials.  I gotta say that we have some ridiculously talented artists volunteering their time and talent for Clan Lord.

Time and Money

I just threw away some money, and with that, I also am throwing away around 20 future-hours of my life.

I just purchased Portal 2.

Why do I do this to myself?

Vanishing Act

I will be largely AFK for all of next week.  This is significant for me in that the V756 deadline is next Friday.

If I want to have any materials ready for submission, then it is in my best interest to have everything ready by this Sunday evening.  And I certainly do have a project that needs to go in this update.
