Side Quests / The Sword Sages
« on: July 25, 2015, 02:25:22 am »
Backstory

So, I don't exactly know how many sword techniques can Link learn, but the idea is quite generic. Before Link gets the first cog, in a mountain area, or maybe the desert, there shall be an obstacle that blocks Link's path. After acquiring the first cog, the player would be able to destroy this obstacle (in the wiki says the wind cog can put out flames and blow windmills, so something like that could be).

Gaining access to that area would lead to a moutain with a small sanctuary or shrine on top. A little puzzle as he climbs to the top, where he finds a man sparring. The man'd then tell Link the story about his ancestors, who were proud warriors whose abilities were recognised far and wide. Each generation inveted a new technique, and would be passed down from father to son. However, the twist here would be that the descendant who was to learn the first one's technique (say, the fifth in the family) would have to confront with his ancestor's spirit in a duel.

So, this man would tell Link that he hasn't been able to creat his own technique, and his ancestors are angered by this and refuse to go back to teach their techniques. Then, the man realizes that Link is a skillful swordsman and suggests that he takes the challenge and confronts the very first man of the lineage to learn his technique.

Shall Link accept, he'd be taken to a dream-like realm in which he'd have to solve a puzzle, maybe defeat a few enemies, and then find the old man. The elder would look down to Link, stating that only gerudos are able to master his techniques. Shall Link triumph over the old man or not, he'd recognise his abilities and offer to teach his technique.

After learning the technique, the man from the mountain would tell Link that he's leaving to hone his skills and that he should seek for his other ancestors to teach the techniques. Across the lands, the player can find different areas with that have the entrance for a the dungeon, where they shall complete a puzzle to learn the technique.

Locations and descriptions
-Atop of a mountain, with the sage. In the dream, Link shall find an old man (with a Miyagi-like beard) who looks down upon him and doesn't recognise his ability until the battle.
"Let's see if you're capable of facing me..."

-A cave in the desert, after completing a small puzzle Link shall find a sword struck in the ground. Upon "speaking" with it, a spirit will appear and talk with Link. This one would be an average man, covered in robes, since he's using them to travel in sandstorsm. Silent guy, who'll say two or three lines to Link and get ready for combat.
"... alright, let's do this..."

-A graveyard (catacombs, to be precise, like the ones from OoT). Upon finding the tomb, the spirit shall appear and speak. An average man under and armor, wielding sword and shield. Friendlier than most of the others, with an upbeat attitude trying to crack a joke with almost every sentence.
"Hahaha, you remind me of my son, eager for a fight. Alright, show me what you've got."

-At the lake. Playing a melody with the ocarina would cause the lake to split in two (like Moses) and reveal stairs that lead to a dungeon below. This would be the mighty pirate with a cutlass, but maybe looking more like a corsair or something like that. And yeah, speaking like a true pirate.
"Yarrr!"

-In the forest, finding a whirlwind would lead Link to a ruined city in the sky (like the dungeon from Minish Cap). Quite simple, the man would be wearing comfortable clothes, much like Link. This one would turn around to Link and ask him for a fight. In books or something Link could find the legend of a man (this guy) who alone defeated a thousand men trying to invade his city. Rumors said that he was a madman passionate for battle.
"I single-handedly defended this city, now gone to ruins. The only thing that remains intact is my lust for battle. Let's dance, boy, make me feel alive again!"


I got kinda inspired from the Hero's Shade and the spirit of the swordsman from Minish Cap. So, yeah, that's it. Whaddya think?

King of Thieves / A couple of questions
« on: July 21, 2015, 12:24:10 am »
Now, I'm sorry if I'm not supposed to post this here, but I couldn't figure where else. Mainly about what's been done so far and what's not been done yet.

First, I remember there used to be a google doc where we could read the story, but I can't find it. Can anyone help me with that?

Next, about bosses, are all of them ready besides Ganon? Or is there any temple lacking a boss? I do have some ideas, but they're not yet finished at all and I could scrap them.

Lastly, about the map, it may be a bit too specifical question, but is there any area like a shore, a beach or a port? Same as above, some ideas about it.

That's it. Thanks in Advance XD

Entertainment / Terraria big update! 1.2 is here!
« on: October 02, 2013, 12:49:50 am »
Yesterday, Terraria launched it's new version, Terraria 1.2. It's a major update which features lots of things, such as new ores, weapons, armors, over a thousand new enemies, including the new bosses, and some friendly NPCs.

For those who do not know what Terraria is, is a side-scrolling, platform, sandbox. Some call it Minecraft 2D. I'd prefer to say that Minecraft is Terraria in 3D with a lot less things.
The game centers around in making your home and stuff so new NPCs arrive. As you progress, things will happen, such as a meteorfall after you defeat certain boss. And after finishing off all the bosses, you can activate hard-mode, which brings all the bosses into it's hard counterpart.

You can check some of the features included in this update here:

Entertainment / Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann
« on: August 09, 2013, 12:53:20 am »
After 10 days, I finished this awesome anime. It's simply magnificent. The fact of having only 27 episodes is because there's no filler episodes! And that's sooooooooooooooo good

Show content
Kamina's death hit me so hard, but it still helped Simon a lot to develop.

And the second part is so good. I almost cried when all died. But it was so well put that death. And when Gurren Lagann evolved again. MAGNIFICENT

I can see that Star likes it for her title, and one of her profile pics  XD

Entertainment / Metro Last Light (spoiler alert)
« on: June 11, 2013, 11:16:55 pm »
I've finished now Metro Last Light, and I must say it's AMAZING. Every single point from Metro 2033 is much better here. The stealth system is very good, as in Hardcore you must be stealthy in enemies base or you're gonna get raped. Another thing I really liked is how the story is told, like in 2033, Artyom writing his diary. And, god, it's so good the story. Every time I listened to Artyom's words, I wanted to keep playing for hours.

The only thing I don't like is that the bullets are not as scarce as its predecessor. You can run out of bullets if you don't know how to rationalize, but in Metro 2033 you had to stab everyone and everything.

Show content
And the endings, for god's sake, so good. I actually like better the "Bad ending". Artyom looks so great on that ending, as he not fears death and blows everything up with himself. SO GOOD. His looks before death, closing his eyes. So fuckin good.

In the good one, yes, he lives, but he isn't showed as the courageous warrior from the bad one.

I really recommend this game, and for those who have already played it, any opinions, comments, or anything?

Entertainment / Minecraft 1.5 now out!
« on: March 15, 2013, 12:47:24 pm »
Ladies, gentlemen and ZFGCers... I show you the Redstone Update on Minecraft! Yup, that's right: a great update for lazy people that doesn't like to do all the Minecraft things with their own hands. We have quite new blocks, some will help us in the mechanisms, and for the designers out there, we have the Quartz! Since Minecraft lacks Marble, or Granite, Mojang decided to add the Quartz.

Personally, I really like this, since I'll be able to do mechanisms for farms, furnaces and more, and I won't have to be collecting everything being afraid of losing it!

Let's see the most important addings:

Hopper


Has someone played the Tekkit mod, for Minecraft? Well, if you have, this are like the pipes: anything that falls into it is stuck there, and if you have a chest under, it goes to the chest! Very cool for automatic looting, right?

Dropper


I, truly, haven't used it yet, but is like a Dispenser, just that it throws every block like if you have dropped it.

Daylight Sensor


Have you ever wanted your light to turn on just at night? Well, with this block you'll be able to do it! While it's daytime, the block will be powered by the sun, and at night, it won't.


That's all for now, though we have much more blocks! If you want to see more, check the Redstone Update!

(I may add more later  XD)

Feedback / Christmas ZFGC look!
« on: December 11, 2012, 01:29:24 am »
Yeah, since we're having the Secret Santa and my evil plans to rule the world making people on the forum to have christmasy pictures is working correc- err, forget that last part. What I meant was, uhm, since we're all in a Christmas mood, why not having a Christmasy Zelda theme instead of the current one?

Yeah, so this is the thing: anyone interested on this "game", modifies their profile picture to give it a Christmas touch. Something like a Santa hat, or so. Here is mine:

Side Quests / [Submission] Jimi's Sidequest
« on: December 01, 2012, 02:01:23 am »
First possible encounter with Jimi: before completing the Forest Temple. Link can go and talk to Jimi in the poor side, while seeing Jimi with an afro hair-cut and playing the guitar.

Second possible encounter: after Forest Temple's completion, Jimi will move to the Musical Triforce, where he was hired by the owner, as well as marrying his daughter. After this, Jimi will request Link to search for Musicians. Link can find them scattered all around the world. One of them, at least, will be just available after completing the Lake Hylia Temple. However, Link can still search for the others.

On this sidequest, Link'll travel all across the land searching for the musicians, who would look like normal NPC. After getting the musicians to play on the restaurant, Link can play the wooden ocarina given by Jimi with the musicians. After this, Jimi will present Link with a Heart Piece.

Overworld/Locations / [Submission] Lighthouses
« on: November 23, 2012, 01:07:30 am »
First of all, this is a total reference to Golden Sun.

Name: Venus Lighthouse
Location: Goron Mountain
Function: the Venus Lighthouse will improve Link's Earth Cog
Description: a huge green lighthouse that holds the power of Earth in its sphere on the top. The Earth Sphere used to guide lost travelers on its way to find the Deku Swamp, as well as to keep the the Wind Cog strong. It has now lost its power, and the Wind Cog is weakened.

Name: Mercury Lighthouse
Location: Lake Hylia
Function: the Mercury Lighthouse will improve Link's Water Cog
Description: a huge blue lighthouse that holds the power of Water in its sphere on the top. The Water Sphere used to make the Rivers flow calmly, as well as to make the Water Cog be strengthened. It has now lost its power, and the Water Cog is weakened.

Name: Jupiter Lighthouse
Location: Wind Forest
Function: the Jupiter Lighthouse will improve Link's Wind Cog
Description: a huge violet lighthouse that holdes the power of Wind in its sphere on the top. The Wind Sphere used to make the winds blow from North to South, as well as from East to West. It has now lost its power, and the Wind cog is weakened.

Name: Mars Lighthouse
Location: Valley of Death
Function: the Mars Lighthouse will improve Link's Shadow Cog (it doesn't make sense, does it?  XD)
Description: a huge red lighthouse that holds the power of Darkness in its sphere on the top. The Shadow Sphere used to darken the Gerudo Desert, as well as the Valley of Death. It has now lost its power, and the Shadow cog is weakened.

----------------------------------------

The Wind Forest is a Forest located at the right of the entrance of the Forest Temple. However, it can't be entered there unless the player has the Wind Cog, as its needed to open a path. Here it's the Jupiter Lighthouse.

Friendly & Neutral / [Submission] Lectro
« on: November 14, 2012, 01:51:05 am »
Name: Lectro
Age: 27
Race: Sheikah
Location: Hyrule Castle Town
Description: Lectro is blond and peak hair (Not a Mohawk. Pretty much like Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh). He always wear a black shirt, a blue vest with a thunder on the left side and a pair of blue pants. He has an electrifying personality.

He's often away from other people, because people is scared of him. Why is people scared of him? Well, pretty much because he can control electricity. He has the ability to control fuses, summon electric storms, and even expel thunderbolts from his body. Though many people is afraid of Lectro's ability, he's a friendly guy. The only thing Lectro wants, is people not to be afraid of him anymore. This doesn't mean that he's desperate for getting frieds. He tries to make friends by talking to different people about everyd-day topics, amuse them with jokes, or by helping them.

Though he tries everything to get friends, people still gets scared of him. Not because he can control electricity, but because they're afraid that Lectro damages them with his power.

-------------------------------------------

For a side-quest, Link'll find him in his house (which has a lightbulb on its top), asking Link why did he come in. Link, knowing nothing about his powers, will be talked by Lectro who'll tell him his sad story of why he doesn't have friends. Now, the quest for helping Lectro get friends begin. Link'll go to the Valley carrying a light bulb and a couple of fuses with him. He'll show the "magic" of electricity. People, being surprised of this will ask Link how he did. Link'll say that this was done by Lectro. People, scared will say something like "Oh... I see... I have to... do some laundry... you know... see you later".

Although the first attempt wasn't succesful, Link'll keep helping Lectro to get friends. The next thing to do is to make a one-night "Electrifying Carnival", in which lights of different colors will be used to amuse the people. This second step is somewhat succesful, though, not the best and last one.

The last attempt is that Lectro will install an electric network in the valley, and at night, lanterns will be turn on. People is amazed by this, and Lectro will be very appreciated between the Shiekahs. After this, Lectro in his house will open a mini-game, the Electric Showdown! (a mini-game in which Link will have to battle electric enemies, like electric clouds, or robots).

-------------------------------------------

Trivia

*Lectro comes from "electricty". Therefore, his relation with electricty is even in his name
*Though he has a lightbulb in his house, this weren't invented, yet

You thought that Cosmo Black was a boring skin? Well, Nintendo got you this Cosmo Black with a Charizard on it!

It has been announced the limited distribution in the Pokemon Centers of Japan, with a Charizard skin in black. As there will be available few, there will be a raffle for the tickets to be able to buy it. This means that if you get a ticket, you'll have the possibility to buy it.

PETA sued by the Pokemon Company
Has PETA gonne very far this time?

As pointed out on this post, PETA made a flash game criticising Pokemon. Well, happens that Nintendo and the Pokemon Company didn't like it, and now he's getting sued! The game depicted that Pokemon where pets being mistreated.

Last year PETA did something similar with Mario BROS Tanooki's suit, but Nintendo didn't care. During this, many people believed that PETA went way too far in its try to show how Pokemon "really" is.

I don't know if it's my computer or what, as in other computers I do can open spoiler tags. Is just that when I click the "spoiler", it doesn't do anything, just selects the text inside.

Audio / Looping sound
« on: October 20, 2012, 02:15:02 am »
So, I need to loop a sound for the game I'm doing. Mostly, because there's a part at the beginning that I want not to be repeated, but I don't know how. Could someone tell me how?

EDIT: I'm using Wavosaur, Goldwave and Audacity.

Feedback / Winter games!
« on: October 18, 2012, 11:32:25 pm »
You know, the Character Competition was in summer, and it was pretty fun. Why not make a Winter edition, with more frosty characters, let's say (though, Icepick Vinnie, frosty character, won). It'd be pretty fun. Winter is coming, and it'd be fun to be a second competition :D

Coding / Trigger actions with buttons
« on: October 09, 2012, 11:41:56 pm »
So, I'd like to know how to, for example, when pressing the "A" button close to an NPC to talk with it, or when pressing "B" button, to use the sword. Would anyone help me at this?

Cut Submissions / [Rejected] Vaati
« on: October 09, 2012, 11:35:07 pm »
Name: Vaati
Race: Minish/Picori
Age: 10
Location: Gang Member
Description: Vaati is one of the few Minish survivors. He was taken by Farin, as he saw great potential in him, and the fact that he was different to all the other kids he has seen in his life. He was impressed by his magical abilites. However, he's not evil anymore, as he was well taught by Ezlo, until he died. Since that moment, he seeks revenge for his master. He borrowed Ezlo's magical hat, to get revenge, but he didn't find the bad guys. He then traveled everywhere to find them.
He finally arrived Hyrule, being hungry and thirsty after so much days of walking with no results. Farin found him, being weak and defeated, and gave him some food. Not much time after, Vaati fainted, and Farin decided to take him with him. Vaati found himself with the kids from the gang, and they were all looking at him, smiling and saying "my god, he's finallyawoke".
At the beginning, he refused to join the gang, and acted cold and distant with everyone, and some times, he tried to escape. However, Farin told him that if he wanted to surive, it was better for him to stay.
It passed some time before he used magic again, so he kind of forgotten about it. One day, he was sitting bored in a corner, and remembered about it. He had to start using magic from the beginning, so he spells aren't the best.
