Used that knowledge to make a standard modal window to use for any menu element I might want.
Added a save and load button to a dialog box.
Started working on events and extending menu screens.
This is what I have so far:
It took longer than I expected to get this far in creating the menu. I should have broken it up into smaller portions to work on. I said I was going to “Make a save and load modal window” for 11 points, but I should have made several stories: “make a modal window”, “add save function”, “add multiple-saves function”, “add load function”, etc…. I really bit off more than I could chew.
Editor-san and I are now working on the Robo-Rinku Visual Novel! I should call her Author-san since she’s doing the writing this time around, but she insists on being called Editor-san. The reason being this character from Monthly Girl’s Nozaki-kun:
We collaborated on the script for the comic during the Webtoons Sci-fi contest, but I’m handing over the reigns to her while I work on the programming and art.
To keep us going, I’m going to write a little blurb talking about the progress we make every week. I also want to share our struggles with others that might want to work on a similar project. So here we go!
My workplace uses agile methodologies to get stuff done, so of course I would use it on my creative projects! Basically, a sprint is a short time window to get a set amount of work done (measured in points), evaluate the work and then continue onto the next sprint. We just finished our very first sprint on the project with a whopping 9 points completed!
This week we:
Set up our sprint board on tree.taiga.io – It’s pretty darn useful for tracking your work wtih a team.
Printed off the old comic for review.
Investigated Lua scripting in Fungus – I definitely want to use it since I think we’ll be able to add dialogue faster than using the point and click interface in Unity.
Created the Private Github Repository to store story and code – No peeking until it’s done!
I decided I definitely want to stick with Fungus because of the reasons I mentioned in my previous post. But there were some features I wanted that weren’t already in the code base. What to do?? I would try contributing to the project!
