Life In The Sticks

Not much going on today. Got some much needed rain yesterday. Maybe my pastures will start growing some grass for my horses and goats.

I had a brilliant idea for a level the other day and have actually started working on it. Ok, I stole the idea from a flash game, but that's beside the point. At first I was going to try and do a remake of the game, but my logic skills are severely lacking and I just didn't think I could pull it off. So I went another route with it and I'm hoping it will work out. My problem is I take entirely too long to build stuff. I started building it out of plain cardboard but don't want to get too far before I decide on the visual theme. I spent a hour and a half today just trying different materials to see how I want it to look. I thought maybe sci-fi or Roman ruins but I finally settled on an industrial look and feel. So now I'm trying to figure out how best to achieve that. I wish I was a fast creator. I've beta tested for Shookie99 a few times and am amazed at how fast he is at creating. What he does in a week would take me a couple of months.

Well I'm off, got work to do.

    Well, it is now 2017 and I STILL have not finished that level. This is mostly due in part to other games though. I barely get on LBP any more these days. Once or twice a month to clear some of my queue.

    2019 checking in. Guess what, still didn't finish that level. I think I'll do it in Dreams though. Maybe. It'll be harder probably because you have to EVERYTHING from scratch in Dreams and a big component of this level is the grab and throw mechanic. I don't know how to make that in Dreams.
