I definitely get that. My mind just shuts down when it comes to business stuff until I get distracted by another programming problem.

@terpin
The most successful people delegate :)
Tylar
@7yl4r
this is an excellent point.
Sara
@terpin
I can do "hello world" in python but that's where my coding ability stops haha

My mind just shuts down when it comes to business stuff until I get distracted by another programming problem.

I'm that way too

Tylar
@7yl4r
alright, well. I've already promised to put in a webdev favor for someone so I'll see if I can get some market analysis and business plan for this game in return.
Sara
@terpin
That's why you guys are good programmers!
Well you know that's what I do for a living right?
Tylar
@7yl4r
I guess I assumed that b/c your art was so badass that you did game art for a living.
Sara
@terpin
I do that too
I'm a copywriter and messaging consultant for startups and big corps
Tylar
@7yl4r
Oh nice.
Sara
@terpin
I gotta work on a couple paintings for a card game, but after that I can do a quick audit of that game and do a little research on what's getting crowdfunded in the 'trail category
Tylar
@7yl4r
sounds good to me!
Realistically I think we'd want to aim a crowdfunding campaign at 4mo from now minimum (to give me time to build up the demo game)
Sara
@terpin
Oh definitely, but you can't get moving in the right direction if you don't know what you need to be doing
what people are looking for in this kind of game probably isn't going to be changing all that much
Tylar
@7yl4r
I suppose that's true, yeah. So far I've been just prioritizing what playtesters report, but it's not quite that easy for developing features.
Sara
@terpin
Well the last thing you want to do is waste time on features nobody wants or ones that just won't work with the game, I get it
Tylar
@7yl4r
Yep. The main thing I've noticed people mention when talking about the Oregon trail is all the various ways you can die, so my next big feature might be a overhaul of the player health system and some generated death scenarios.
Sara
@terpin
sounds like we need to audit the original oregon trail features too
Tylar
@7yl4r
Probably, yes.
Sara
@terpin

Can you open up a new task and assign me:

Audit Original Oregon Trail Game
Audit Orion Trail Kickstarter Demo
Research successful 'trail kickstarter games in the last 12 months, and failed 'trail kickstarter games in the last 12 months

Tylar
@7yl4r
would be happy to, yes.
Sara
@terpin
K, it's going to be a crazy week and I don't want to forget. I know I'll be able to do the first two things in the next week, but it's going to take some time to compile a report on both failures and winners
Tylar
@7yl4r
No rush, I'm taking my sweet time with the features and no one has complained yet. =P
Sara
@terpin
haha okay ^^
Tylar
@7yl4r
anyone around and want to talk about a color palette?
Imgur
Tylar
@7yl4r
After trying out several... I still have no idea what is the appropriate mix of old-west and space. ;P
All I know is that bright green is all over the classic Oregon trail.

@JrodManU
Woop woop. I fixed the SFX trailing bug and closed it.
Only took one line inside an if XD
JrodManU
@JrodManU
Ok, trying to fix the mute not working for phaser
How could i get vm.muted from audiocontrols.js to asteroidmining.js? Ot would it be best to make some kind of global variable
Tylar
@7yl4r
Nice! Happy to see you again, @JrodManU.
Tylar
@7yl4r
So, phaser doesn't seem to have a global mute, which means we're going to have to tell all the games using phaser to not play the sounds, and the best way to do that is to use a $broadcast or $emit paired with a $on in asteroidMining.js.
JrodManU
@JrodManU
Alright i can look into that stuff. Just needed to know what direction to go.
Tylar
@7yl4r
there should be some examples in the code to help. Looking at this after a few hours though, I'm wondering if it might just make more sense to set a variable on game.data like muted=true
JrodManU
@JrodManU
In the phaser stuff you can do game.sound.mute = true
Vm.game.sound.mute = true *
Tylar
@7yl4r
oh nice
Tylar
@7yl4r
added! I also ripped the ship and flames from that sheet, but haven't implemented them.
Tylar
@7yl4r
oh boooo. the free version of hexels is gone. =(((

@metiscus
Hello. :)
Tylar
@7yl4r
Hi! I see you forked the repo, have you taken a look at the code yet? I know it is a bit cryptic.
Michael Bosse
@metiscus
Yeah I've looked it over but I'll be honest with you, this style of game is a bit different than what I am used to working on. It is taking be a little bit longer to understand how the flow works.
*me not be ;)
Tylar
@7yl4r
Nah, this architecture was a crazy idea that I just wanted to try out.
Michael Bosse
@metiscus
I was going to try to add what I thought was a fairly small feature just to get my feet wet. I wanted to change the fuel burn rate of each ship. But tracing how that data goes through the system was too much for my tired brain yesterday.
