  1. Are these custom sprites? They look great, as for the mixing of the tile sets I'm not too fond of it.
  2. I'm not sure this is a feature you want to tackle with the events system. What happens to a player when their in a premium zone and their premium hours run out? What happens to premium items in the players bank and inventory when their hours run out? Can players trade premium items to players who have not paid for a membership? How will player pay for premium membership with real world cash? I'm assuming the owner will have to accept payment on a website then manually give a premium membership activation item to the player. Also giving membership based on a large pool of hours that only count down when a player is logged in is a method I'm not sure many game owners are looking for. It is cool that you have a small prototype for this idea created in via events, not sure its sustainable for a real release.
  3. This post hits me deep in the core. I spent a around 2k usd on custom features for my game that I thought were essential to make my game unique and stand out. Looking back I really regret doing this and do not suggest it for people who are not efficient programmers. That is unless you have a big budget which I'm assuming most do not have. When the big intersect update came out that fixed a bunch of stability and vulnerability issues I knew I had to upgrade if I ever wanted to release my game. There is no easy one click way of upgrading major releases like this. This left me with two options, try to migrate everything or start over. I obviously didn't want to start over so I went the route of hiring someone to migrate my features. The programmer got close to fixing most things but the whole process was convoluted and painful. Some features where never truly debugged which was mostly my fault because I failed to stay in contact with the coder. I also knew that I would end up crossing the same path again one day soon and couldn't stomache the thought of it lol. My suggestion is if you can't program to try and base your game idea around the current features of the stable engine. Just work long and hard on your minimal viable product. The core that makes your game your game. Worry about the fine details when your close to a real legitimate release. I say this because you could be working on your game for 2-3 more years before a real release is possible. In this time the engine could go through some huge rewrites and your plans could be spoiled multiple times. Also if you don't have a programmer on your team it's probably best that you focus more on the talents you are bringing to your game. This could be art, music, story telling ECT. Take it from someone who has restarted his game like 4 times. Just forget about custom features until much later in your games development. Build an audience, get some eyes on your game so you can justify spending some money on it. Also note that if you can't fix a bug within a custom feature yourself, it may never be fixed.
  4. The green leaves of your trees completely blend in with the grass tiles, try making them different greens.
  5. You don't seem to display the price anywhere in the thread.
  6. Good luck @Kibbelz, @jcsnider & @Jcsnider2
  7. maybe this is the guild bank bug again?
  8. Any screenshots of your game?
  9. I don't believe that for a second marsh...
  10. ahh, that's right. My bad.
  11. I think she means riding your horse. From what it looks like the mount system is just an item that he paper dolls the horse sprite over top. I'm sure the item provides a boost to speed when player equips it.
  12. I'm going to start making more of these videos. I created a new channel called neeknog which is where any of my content will be posted including intersect tutorials. I wanted a more generalized brand/concept for the channel because I will be posting a wider array of content than just tutorials. If you enjoy the videos I make please subscribe to the new channel. Thanks. With that being said, any suggestions of non coding intersect tutorials?
  13. I never did understand the tutorial, is this still up to date?
  14. Thanks dude. More coming this week, would like to get to a point of releasing 1-2 per week
  15. Only time will tell if we stand the test of time.

  16. There is actually a way of doing this. Create an npc with no sprite and make sure to remove the name completely so it is blank. Then make an event that auto runs to spawn a single npc on a desired tile and have it spawn the npc you created. Give the npc the spell you want. Make sure you have the npc blocked into an area inaccessible to the players so the player cannot walk up an attack it (maybe a blocked wall inside a dungeon). You could also make a self switch in the event that as soon as is spawns one npc it turns itself off by linking to a blank event page. This way you will not spawn 100's, not sure if this would do what you want it to.
  17. Hey guys! I just created a new YouTube channel and am in the process of making some game development tutorial YouTube videos. These videos will vary from graphics, sounds recording, and music to tutorials on how to use Intersect Engine. I figured I would make one topic to post them all instead of making a topic every time I post a new video/tutorial. Video 1 : How to cast shadows from objects in your game world: NON VIDEO TUTORIALS: Spin the wheel event tutorial: Feel free to post feedback, comments and suggestions. We can use this topic as a way of keeping track of witch videos you guys really want me to make as well. Feel free to subscribe
  18. I don't think there is any function of changing an items icon built in. Is it being dropped by an npc? or an on map event? If so you can randomize which items it drops, or spawns and make it different every time.
  19. But every time you predict the future you forget a memory from your own past. My super power is to harness electricity through the air.
