Quote from: barteke22 on Jun 16, 2022, 10:54 PMIf you want to try out VEE there's a link to both the text contribution info and some general guides for it in the guides link below (and the one at the top).

While the guides might look like a lot, they're mostly about quality of life stuff and tips, plus details. It boils down to connecting boxes on a canvas to form a chain of stuff you want to happen (conditions > show image/NPC > show text etc > apply stats > pass time).

I won't expect beginners to provide perfectly structured events obviously (especially if you don't know much about simple programming logic).  But it would definitely be a helpful start to have the events in the right folders, and with some basic flow.  Either way, add comments about what you want to actually happen, so it can be verified and fixed/improved/implemented.

For generic events (not story chains) there's now also more streamlined condition Functions (under FunctionLibrary\GeneralEvents) - so there's better flow and less RNG/fighting to things.  Basically if an events's Try is filled with random conditions and nothing from that folder, it's likely not a good example to follow for generic stuff (outdated logic).

Yeah, I think I still wanna start out contributing text for a bit. How do I start in any case? Join the discord?

Either works, might be faster there if you've got any questions.  The process is mostly figuring out what's already there (and probably looking into it), coming up with some concept for where you want it to go.  Then maybe finding some images (unfinished chains might have a few already) so you know what you're working with visually and well, writing the text.

I haven't finished writing all the dialogue and the formatting needs some work, but I wanted to post it to find out if the idea is acceptable. I also would like to find out what needs improvement.

If my idea seems good enough, I will finish the rest of the event...

Sorry for the late feedback, I've been a tad busy so didn't look at the events themselves (better done in batch), but the text itself looks good (and I see that there's comments for logic).  If the whole thing is tied into progressing the club further (story), feel free to fill out the details (as you make them) in the club's Info Database entry for tracking (though note them as WIP).

Hey there, I'm going to dive into the events really quick to get a look at them. Sorry it took so long, it took me a while to catch up with everyone.

Ok, so pretty solid all around, though the logic itself will need testing, but nothing obviously wrong. As far as the intention... yeah sure, why not? Cooking with bodily fluids seems a very logical progression, I'd say run with it. I'm sure there are plenty of images for it.

Obviously you'd want to have some followup events showing various extraction methods, etc. Basically just building out the follow-through. One thing though, one of those images is .webp, which is not the best format. A couple others are .png, which will have bloated file sizes. Basically just convert everything into .jpg and then run it through the compressor. (https://tinypng.com/) But that's just polish, the core is solid.

Quote from: OutOfUniqueNames on Jun 06, 2022, 09:35 PMYou guys didn't lose the latest dev build with the forum loss did you? Is there any event adds we need to be aware of that are in the dev-only build? The locations that could really use events are probably Park and Lake for student events and probably Red Corner for the general population that aren't Students.

I actually have a huge mishmash of random events on my end of things, but that's normal for me. I normally have about 10 or so in events in various degrees of creation at any one time. But none of that material is lost, it was all safely on my computer.

On the plus side, the park and lake are areas I've been focusing on recently, and there's a few more events still on their way for those areas.

Apologies, I realize I'm extremely new to the form and thus can obviously be considered not trustworthy yet, but I am willing to help with a variety of content. I do have some experience writing generally, and even writing 18+ stuff(relating to M/M stuff only though). I won't be able to be a massive regular contributor right away due to health reasons, but I do have some ideas both for existing characters and a new one I have tried coming up with. I already have an rough outline for them and am willing to share. I am also willing to do a 'test' of writing skill if that helps earn trust just because I am so new to this form. My only thing will be that I don't think I can do sex scenes other than yaoi. I'm willing to write non-sex scenes for other combinations, and even try the sexual but not full-on sex scenes. It's just a block I have when it comes to writing. I also probably won't be using VEE since I don't understand and won't have the time and focus to learn it for the upcoming month or two.

That's great to hear, thanks!

Thanks for the feedback! Don't worry about taking a bit longer, I know everyone must be busy.

Once I finish the events and do some follow ups, I will post an updated version.
