08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

A few days ago, I opened up the project in which I was developing the engine for my Touhou fangame, Rampant Crescent Flora, and decided to keep myself busy during MajiKana's development downtimes by getting stuff done in there. I must say, the days feel a lot shorter when I'm working on it, as it feels like I can keep at it for over 10 hours at a time each day. As a result, I've been quite prolific in the last couple days, as can be seen from this screenshot:

The first thing that you ought to notice is that I have a new stage background. No more bland-ass pseudo-3D still image - this is a true 3D background, set up with the assistance of FullHitPoints and some placeholder textures from LoLK's Stage 1.
On top of that, I've replaced the placeholder fairy sprites and added other enemy types as well as colors (so far there's fairies, spirits and yin yangs). The fairies still require an aura which I haven't gotten around to draw yet.
Also, lasers. They were a bit tricky to set up, but right now I've got the straight moving laser kind, which is just a stretched bullet sprite that can be grazed four times each per second and is also lethal, but as of writing this journal, they can't be destroyed by anything yet. There will also be static lasers like in Rumia's second boss nonspell, as well as curvy lasers, although I'm definitely going to have my fair share of trouble with those.

I can definitely say that this engine is starting to shape up.

P.S.: Not pictured is the dialogue system I've been working to implement. It's not much to look at right now, anyway. Just a character portrait of Reimu (from LoLK, of course) whose expression you can change with the shot key while also toggling her dialogue activity with the bomb key.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA

HOW LONG I'VE WANTED TO MAKE A TOUHOU FANGAME

AND HOW MUCH DANMAKUFU SUCKS ASS TO TRY AND DOWNLOAD

Danmakufu isn't hard to download and use... unless you're stuck on the ancient decrepit old 0.12m engine which is so outdated it's completely obsolete.

Yeah, sorry to burst your bubble, but this engine is private and that likely won't change anytime soon.

I know.

But I still get an orgasm from the potential concept.
