For those who've supported me, I thank you all once more. If anyone decides to donate to my Kickstarter I would be in a world of happiness but seriously, the small things you guys do or say is enough to make me more committed to this project than ever. The name is Icon Universe on kickstarter, and it should be finished and up within the week(just making it all look pretty
Ive decided to make the avatar dressup and the clothing editor in Flash/Actionscript. Its easier, and cleaner. The downside is it has to be loaded everytime like a flash game. But itll make everything smoother and more professional. Aside from that i have most of Stage 1 finished. Just needs to be stitched together. I expect it to be playable by the beginning of next year, however I'm going to say May since it gives my team ample time to do what I ask of them. Seriously though, January/February is almost a guarantee.
As you can see we now have hair! Courtesy of the ever wonderful teammate mouldyCat
whom I owe a lot of praise and thanks. She still only works on commission but one day I hope after we finish to get her onboard fulltime :3. I honestly do not think this project would have had a succeeding chance without her.
As for my personal life, I'm in the navy! It was a ridiculously long ordeal but I'm very proud of my decision. I joined for many reasons, and one of them is that I believe in this country, And I believe we can someday be greater than we already are. You don't abandon something because it has a problem, and I think a lot of my generation is more used to Flight over Fight. In relationships we leave when something goes wrong, when we should be talking about our differences and trying to solve them. At school, some of us just don't go because we feel like the "Now" is the "Forever" and tomorrow will be the same as today. And as a country, we blame all our problems on the government or president as a whole without actually doing something to fix it. We're so used to complaining were not contributing. I love my country, and I will always love it. Therefore I'm choosing fight. But don't worry, I'm not even going to bootcamp until June, and even then I'm leaving the game with my incredibly capable team, and I'll be back after about 6 months.
As for everything else, my roommate Shane moved out. Not that terrible, since I've been offered to join him, but then I have to pack up all my stuff x_X. Im also working towards a special program for my job that allows me to be interviewed for Assistant Manager(not that I'm not already a manager, but the Assistant Manager is SALARY!!!). I hope by the end of the year to be in the program, and to be ready to get that salary position before I leave in June. Which is awesome, since I'm barely 23.
That's all I have to write today. Ill try to keep up on my journals and I'll definately submit the Kickstarter link. Not that anyone is obligated to donate but seriously, everything helps, and the more money we raise the more I can spread out to my commissioned team members to get more ready quicker. Plus I'll love you(yes, YOU) forever. It's a sweet deal I promise, I show up with flowers like the hopeless romantic we all know I am
Thanks for reading my rant^^ Stay awesome everyone.
