    Homeland progress report

    I finished the last couple side quests in Chapter 1, and I filled in a chunk of Chapter 2, as well as bits of Chapter 4. I'm at 70 towns, and I'm still estimating that this thing will be maybe just under 100 towns when I'm done. I've decided to shorten Chapter 5, and probably fold the Conclusion into it. So, at the moment: Prologue: 9 towns; 100% designed and tested. Chapter 1: 19 towns; 100% designed, mostly tested. Chapter 2: 20 towns; 2 largely blank, 3-5 need significant filling in, roughly 70-80% designed and entirely untested. Chapter 3: 14 towns made, ~8 more to be made; most need significant filling in. Chapter 4: 8 towns made, ~10 more to be made; most need significant filling in. Chapter 5: ~8-10 towns to be made. (Note also that there are 24 outdoor sections, of which I'm presently using 18 that are almost completely designed. I may use a few more at some point.) My sense is that I've just passed the halfway mark, more or less, but there's still a long way to go. I hope I can finish no later than the end of next year, but who knows. Designing Chapter 4 is fun, but it's also sort of harrowing.

    BoE Scenarios Archive? And BoE Version

    Distributing is distributing is distributing. Copies are copies, whether individually, batched, or batched together with something else. Note: Still not legal advice.

    BoE Scenarios Archive? And BoE Version

    I can't think of a meaningful legal difference between hosting the scenarios individually without permission and hosting them in a batch without permission, and I don't think most designers gave TrueSite (etc.) permission. Also, it would take a real asshole to file a copyright infringement suit right away — the most likely outcome is that someone would ask to be excluded, and you'd just have to comply. Or maybe a DMCA takedown notice; I did that once with someone who was hosting my scenarios without permission and being kind of obnoxious about it. Note: Not legal advice, though I am a lawyer and I studied copyright law at one point.
  4. I've been deliberately avoiding updating for this very reason. Until Homeland is finished, I am on 10.12.

    BoE Scenarios Archive? And BoE Version

    I believe a zip of every BoE scenario ever released would be in the ballpark of 60 megabytes. Pretty manageable in this day and age.

    True Site for Blades is down?

    I messaged her, and she said she would post here, but seeing that she hasn't... here's what she said:

    True Site for Blades is down?

    I've messaged her.
  8. Are you maybe looking in the wrong currency? I think we're still a fair bit away from the sound design goal.
  9. I just threw in $200. I feel like it's the least I could do after so many years, and it'd be nice to get better sounds.
  10. We've hit the second stretch goal! Onto the third.
  11. Such as, "Has the number of septuagenarian Eskimos increased since 2004?"
  12. It's probably not because your skill points are allotted wrong, because I got farther than that without using any skill points at all.
  13. Yes, that appears to be what happens with the other mysterious causes of Unhandled Exceptions: they come and go for no obvious reason. Coupled with the fact that I can't reproduce them, you can see why I haven't been able to track down some of them.
  14. These usually come from a call affecting something that doesn't exist or is out of range. For example, if you have a creature numbered 6 and use set_character_facing(6,8), you'll get an Unhandled Exception because 8 is out of range — that parameter is only supposed to run from 0 to 7. If you don't have a creature numbered 6, and you use erase_char(6), you'll get an Unhandled Exception because you're trying to erase a character that doesn't exist. But, for reasons I don't really understand, other things also cause Unhandled Exceptions. They occur only on Windows and I use a Mac, so I've never really had much luck tracking down the other causes.
