Re: Lost Coastlines

I'll probably finish a playable beta of Lost Coastlines this weekend, though there are still a lot of features to add.

Re: games with powers?

most objects in I Summon Thee! do nothing. After all, why would you need to do anything with objects? You're an omnipotent elder thing, if you need to open a locked door you just ANNIHILATE THE DOOR. I created a bunch of random dynamic objects for I Summon Thee! just so the CONJURE command would do ...

Re: games with powers?

Also, I recommend The PK Girl, by some accounts the best and most ambitious ADRIFT game ever made

no clue how this works. That "top hat" game was top billing for like 2 years.

Re: How to see full map?

Hello!

It depends on which game you're playing. The Map keeps track of connections between rooms (north, south, east, etc)
Some games (for example many of mine) don't have conventional room connections, and thus the map is not super useful (and can be minimized)

Joining the community on Gawa doesn't actually make your home there, sorry, that was a bit of bad writing on my part.

Re: Skybreak, help please

A map here: https://ifarchive.org/if-archive/games/competition2019/Skybreak/Skybreak%21/The%20Map%21.jpg shows how some, but far from all, worlds related to each other. Many locations are outside of the skybreak galaxy, and in fact the standard "universe" as we understand it. The hardest thing about...

Re: Lost Coastlines

And a few more, to demonstrate the parser-like elements and the variety inherent in each procedurally-placed location and procedurally-generated item.

Re: Lost Coastlines

Indeed, I feel as though I'm on the edge of something spectacular here. While strictly "smaller" than Skybreak in total text, Lost Coastlines represents a sort of Holy Grail of Adrift: to my knowledge, it's the first crazy-big open-world RPG made in ADRIFT...certainly the first in a long time (pleas...

Re: nesting rooms

It's pretty easy, here's how: When you make a room, you can connect it to other room via the DIRECTIONS tab, right? Note that one of the directions is IN/OUT, it's an arbitrary direction like NORTH/SOUTH/EAST/WEST and so on. Using the IN/OUT direction, you can, for example, create a room called THE ...

Re: Lost Coastlines

Another update. I'm at version 0.4 now, and the game is looking more and more like a playable game. I'm now slowly adding RPG-like encounters to each of the 400+ locations that can get procedurally placed on the map. I include some examples as screenshots including 1. Sea lanes, which you can plunde...

Re: Skybreak

A new update for Skybreak! is out, officially version 1.2, the first of at least 3 post-IFComp expansions. Link on the ADRIFT site here: http://www.adrift.co/game/1569 For those keeping score, Skybreak now has * 318 unique worlds * 397 variables * 5265 distinct tasks * ~500 unique encounters * exact...
