Just thought I'd leave a progress note with what I'm working on...color code time!
Intro movie: As I'm writing this, I'm editing out the FiM intro video (from a HD MP4) and getting ready to re-encode it for RPG Maker...the ones of you that saw it in the tech-demo video probably noticed a LOT of pixelization...that's because it's a really low resolution and stretched...don't worry, it'll be good quality.
Mapping: After I'm done with this, I'll resume working on the maps...currently the world map is done, now I'll need to make the actual locations on it, which believe it or not is the most complex part for me. I really hate the generic fully symmetrical maps most people make in RPG Maker (they're not terrible, but they don't feel natural), so even after I'm done with them, I'll probably change them a billion times in the future 'till I'm satisfied.
Graphics and music: I also started gathering some basic graphics I'll be needing such as "face sets" or full-character pictures (though those will be used in fights or menus only) For those of you interested in Rule34-stuff, well, I have absolutely nothing on that. Seriously, other than the ideas I have (see link on the bottom), I still don't have a single thing started.
Music...well, that I'll leave for last, pretty much when I start begging for assistance with music, there will very likely be a release coming up.
Misc: Wait, "release coming up"? That means the game is completed right? - Eenope. I'll re-release the game as many times as needed 'till it fits my "standards". If I release it with contributions from let's say 20 artists, but a few weeks later one single artist tells me he/she will volunteer to create content specifically for the game, I'll re-release it with that content (each artist has his/her style, so the ideal would be 1 artist doing all the graphics and one musician all the music).
"Help me": Want to help out or donate me permission to use your existing work in my game? Leave a comment or a PM and when I reach the specific point, I'll check out your gallery and see what I can use from it ^_^ (copyright info and your name will appear in multiple places in the game of course)
Last updated list of personal ideas: http://pastehtml.com/view/c02qv1i8v.html (note: I received some fan-ideas, don't think I over-looked them, they're on a .txt file on my desktop, I just haven't processed them yet)
