Yeah, loved those games. That was the one I was talking about.

I'm not really for random encounters either. But in my childhood I've played many oldschool rpg's, and one of them had a (imho) nice solution for that. There were random encounters, but you could see them walking over the map, that way you could estimate what creatures the random encounter contained, and eventually engage or evade them.

The battles themselves are, a bit like Capristo said, resolved in an extra pseudo-randomly generated piece of ground.

In general, and I think most of you are familiar with it, I think IVAN would eventually turn out much like Dwarf Fortress (Adventure Mode), especially concerning skills and stuff. Not that that's not normal. I think DF pretty much has every skill you could imagine.

- The voodoo doll would be different from the Minus sword in that it would be a ranged attack instead of melee. (Actually, what would happen if you smack the head of a voodoo doll in the groin of the victim? ) Another fun thing to do would be gathering small items to apply to the doll. (i.e. on one hand, pieces of victims so the doll actually works on them, on the other hand: needles, matches, razor blades, ...)

- I love the Midas's touch idea. If it's worked out some more it's very reasonable. In your example of digging out a wall, the wall would not change into gold (except if you touch it by accident, and then maybe you'd just get a gold brick or something), on the other hand, one of the first things turning into gold would be your pickaxe - Problem is, you'd have to be very creative to get certain things done like eating, handling items, and... pushing your FINGERS down your throat to vomit.

*You push your fingers down your throat and vomit.*
*Your throat turns into gold!*
*Your tongue turns into gold!*
*You vomit gold nuggets!*
*You panick!*

This is not really a screw up, but it cracked me up anyways.

So I was strolling around in the underwater tunnel with my trustful dog. Suddenly, I SAW A BANANA! I eagerly grabbed the banana to feist on it, even though I've probably haven't eaten anything else in decades, and casualy threw the banana peel behind me.

Kenny the puppy slips over the banana peel.

Kenny the puppy is killed.

Kudos to you for that. I was immediately afraid of databases after my confrontation with them at the exams of last year. But now, I love the way I can overabuse them now that I know more.

Anyways, I'm off to school, and I'll get some more programming done there, it's not like I have anything better to do there.

*creeps back in the forum*

Finally, I'm back.

And finally I found the courage to come up with new ideas and implement them. This work is continued again, again. I've implemented SQL databases to contain monster info, item info, and all stuff that needs to be databased (yes, from now on that's a verb). This will greatly improve further programming, AND eventual modding and making addons. This also brought me to another idea, the scenario developer, which will (eventually, after a lot of blood, sweat and tears) give everyone without programming knowledge a chance to fully customize the game. And I mean fully.

So, I'm actively working on this again. Also, hello again everyone, maybe!

To continue on the development plan: Is there by any chance anyone here with enough knowledge of Java, in particular GUI? Because I'm really getting pissed about not being able to continue my work, because of the image loading problem. And I'm getting even more pissed thinking about the fact I didn't have that problem in my previous pre-crash build.

Well, I'm interested, ofcourse. I am willing to do anything, I don't have any knowledge of C++ in particular, but I am able to read the code and know what it does, and I have a decent knowledge of programming in general, so I can probably give general guidelines and hints.

Can't find it there.
