An Endless Stream of Bugs...

Well,

you can think you're just about there, on it and ready, and then another bug rears its head.

It's really about perfection, and making sure you're contented with the balance. I'm half-contented, not generally overtly pleased with what we've got in terms of delivery, but at the same time ecstatic about what we've achieved.

With the 2 prior main bugs ironed out, I was wrapping things up a short while ago when I came across another menagerie of bugs which I don't have the strength for really.

So in a bid to make this piss-poor excuse of a 'life' easier for myself, I'm probably going to simplify the Calibration system and make TARDIS upgrades incredibly easy.

It's getting there. The good news is we've got some pretty exciting plans for Wave 2 written up, so everything in place, it's just a case of cobbling together the content from the plans.

We're looking at one main quest to introduce you to our Whovian onslaught of bad guys, and then a small, unique quest for each creature dotted around the Mojave.

So, there you have it, another small update. I have my good days, and my bad days, and today I don't particularly want to carry on. But I will.

Ah Demeggy I know how you feel. I have a lot of trouble with some of my creations on another game (http://www.roblox.com/11th-Doctors-Tardis-Christmas-Special-2013-WIP-place?id=33012897) Yeah I know it's a shit game but I can't help but build. Take your time and take breaks since it does help.

If you need to make some parts rubbish, but has a chance to be improved when you feel the energy to do so, then go for it. Don't kill yourself over this mod, you have years to come to complete it.

Can you elaborate on how you plan to simplify the calibration system and make upgrading the TARDIS incredibly easy?

We all appreciate the hard work and time you have put into this, but if you need a break by all means have one, or several. I don't think anyone has ever made a mod for a game that captures the source material to the level that Fallout Who Vegas does, so well done, and take your time.

Demeggy fan said...

The word "simplify" scared me somehow.
I think it's better to postpone the release even for some weeks than make tha TARDIS "simplier". Unless it can be fixed later.
Keep strong, you're brilliant.
Love and support

Kitsudragon said...

Something I posted over on the forum: If you're having trouble finding a fix for the upgrade system's program logic, why not crowd-source that particular module?

It might be that putting more minds on the problem will create a solution faster? I mean, if this is what's preventing you from releasing it, and it's about to go public anyway, why not get more people involved in how this particular module works, and see if they can help fix it?

The Doctor has more intelligence than any of us individually, but together, a whole lot of us might match him. :) That's my conceit, anyway. So why not try putting more minds on the problem?

great idea!

This seems like the best solution, an "open beta" if you will. This will also help relieve the pressure and stress caused by the delayed release, and make bug finding much faster and more efficient.
I am sure there are modders in the community who would help finding solutions to persistent bugs.
As a modder myself I would welcome this move. Who is with me?

RottenApple said...

I'm not with you! :DD

Shadpweaver said...

I agree with the crowd sourcing delay,it prevents both the simplification of the TARDIS and prevents further delays/the restlessness of the community, its a win win as far as I can see

Well after a nights sleep, I managed to get the issue in question resolved this morning. There are a few more tests I'd like to run, specifically between the alternating desktop themes to ensure there's no bugging with controls, but once that's done, I can admit I;m actually happy to put it out there for the public to enjoy.

On another note, I'll be withdrawing from it slightly as it's presence is starting to affect my personal life and at the end of it all, it's just not worth it.

Keep following, I'll be putting up another post one day this week

Cookiemorph said...

Alright Demeggy, take a nice long well earned break. Happy to hear that you have basically everything in working order, and none of us can thank you enough for the work you are doing to give us this superb mod. Well done!

On that note, it seems like the cheeky idea of an open beta has just been dismissed by Demeggy's pure bug fixing awesomeness.

DoctorWhose said...

Withdrawing "slightly"? You are just keep getting more ominous Demeggy^^ If by that you mean that you will no longer spend days and nights making the other parts of this mod, thats totally fine.

Best Doctor Who song :)

Well in my opinion it is.

We're not dead, taking a few days break from it all.

So, I suppose the mod will be out later this week unless "life" happens? Have a "absolutely fantastic" break by the way! :-)

Cookiemorph said...

Good to know :) Enjoy your break, all we shall do is wait patiently (even though some of us are dying inside).

DoctorWhose said...

Take it, its surely well deserved. And then you can go back to work with renewed strength. It will be as if you regenerated ;)

Anonymous said...

To break this silence, how are you guys enjoying the well earned break? And by the way, is there a specific day when the break ends, because I rather not sit up day and night in vain, enjoy the break! :-)

Anonymous said...

Why isn't it out yet? I mean you said just a "few" more tests, I mean that takes like max 3 days??? If it isn't out this weekend I will start to cry and give up hope on this mod.

DoctorWhose said...

Anon if you havent noticed they are taking a well deserved break. Seriously, nobody owes you this mod.

Anonymous said...

But they said just a few more tests, and then BYE BYE we take a break. I mean, that is CRAP! Couldn't they just do the tests, put it out, be done with it, and then take the longest freaking break ever? Thats just how I think.

Dracony said...

I am with DoctorWhose on this one, STOP WHINING, the mod WON'T come out earlier just because you shout, now deal with it, let them have their long and very deserved break. :-)

Tarminuus said...

Anon, give up. You are merely waiting on a mod for a week. They are working on a mod for a week. A mod they've already been working on for 2 years. So sit down, shut up or just give up on the mod. Just do it. There's nothing holding you here except their incredible work. Get out.

The People Who Want This Mod Rushed Have To Understand There Not Machines So Have Patience And Wait..

Cookiemorph said...

Technically, they are machines. Their brains are anyway.

That Was A Very Smart Reply We Are Humans Were A Live Machines Are Not

Kris said...

I'm having a lovely week thanks. I can actually focus on my paid career rather than juggling trolls :)

It'll be out when it's out and not before.

There's nothing left to do now really apart from a final playtest. Have a jammie dodger and chill out.

DoctorWhose said...

Thats how it should be, Kris ;)

Dracony said...

Glad to hear you enjoy your time of Chris! :-)

Cookiemorph said...

Hey Kris, a nice Doctor Who double release tomorrow night would be epic, and very good timing lol. Jus' sayin, not to be pushy if i seemed that way.

Anonymous said...

ARRGGGGGGG!!! The anticipation is killing me! Though I do understand the need for a break. The human machine needs rest before it overheats. Or dies. Or explodes (twice, depending on the situation). Either way it'll stop and probably not in a way you'd like it to. Anyway, recharge, cool down, and make sure your pressure levels are in an acceptable range before you start working again. Enjoy your down time!

Anonymous said...

Take a break guys (even though I am dying inside). But seriously take a break you guys deserve it.

Anonymous said...

Wow... Everybody keeps saying take a break when that's exactly what they're doing. They aren't going to do anything because you tell them to guys, and that includes both spectrums of action. If the mod releases or if the team takes a hiatus it'll be for varying reasons, and neither will be because the public asks them to.

Jerosh said...

I believe the people do not mean to command them to take a break, rather they are showing their continued support through the break they are currently taking. However what do I know, I am only one guy in a world of many.

can't wait for tonight's episode!!! happy holidays

Damn it kris! now i really want a jammie dodger!

Jerosh said...

Would you care to have a jelly baby instead? They are a delicacy here on earth.

Tarminuus said...

Or perhaps a glowing blue cupcake from the Planets (formally) orbiting Akhaten?

Kitsudragon said...

Or... I've got it!

Cupcakes... with edible ball bearings!
