Skipping Across a Pond


No no no no no no no nononono

The school isn't allowing sophomores (me) to pick an AP English class for next year, and basically making all of us go to English 3 Honors next year and one AP English class senior year.

nononononononononononono NO. This is not good.


Assassins and Updates

Posted by Nara , in BZPower, Pokemon, SciO Feb 05 2013 · 375 views

No not assassin's creed.

So, our SciO team wins a spirit award at this one invite every year, and this year, we're winning it by having a game of Assassins. All day, secret alliances, winner gets a bag of skittles.

And I intend to win.

Also, that BZP countdown thing is nice. I like it.

Also, basically no progress on the RotR game. My chance to go to state for SciO is on the line, so.. yeah. Not to mention that I'm getting this odd glitch that I'm not sure how to fix, but the maps are done. I guess I could give out an awful demo, I'll put in some NPCs if you guys want.

What compelled someone to put the Amazon Cloud on BZP? If the rules don't even allow mentioning other forums, then they'd probably have a heart attack if they saw what was tagged. You know, being a kid-friendly site. If you get what I'm saying.



Why must you do this, school?

Posted by Nara , in School Jan 29 2013 · 525 views

I said last year (as in, November/December) that I knew what classes I'm taking senior year. Well, that's proven to be wrong.

There's a chance that AP Music Theory will be brought back next year, and I'm taking it. However, that means one less class, and unfortunately, I'm giving up art. Which means that I can't take the art class I really want to take senior year, because of prerequisites.

I can't even drop lunch to take the art class, because of AP Chem, which is a period and a half. I'd drop it senior year but I can't take the two concurrently.

I don't need to take a class that teaches me what I already know, in order for me to take a class to help for college and the like. It's silly to sit through a year of already-learnt information.

Sigh. I wish there were more hours of the school day.


This Bar

This notification bar. I like it.

Although it does go behind the blog windows, it's useful. It probably goes behind reply and topic windows as well..

No matter. I can go to my notifications without opening a bunch of tabs now. ^-^


Name Change and SciO

Posted by Nara , in BZPower, SciO Jan 25 2013 · 425 views

Decided to change my name because I've stuck with my old username for the entire time. I don't think it'll mess with people, since I've had my avatar and sig for a while now.

Now, more SciO stuff! Another invite tomorrow, really freaking out about this one but I'm determined to win in Forestry.

Surprisingly, my partner and I won fifth in Fermi last time, not sure how that happened. 10th in Experimental, 8th in Forestry, and 8-13th in MagLev. Ranks will be increasing tomorrow. They better. =D


This Has Pleased Me

Someone created a tool to edit the maps in Gen 4. This is amazing and saddening news.

Because now, I [will] have a stable platform to base RotR2 on, but it's so well developed, I almost want to switch RotR onto it.

So there. As for updates on the game, it's almost ready to be released as a demo. Going to shoot for next week, I'll release the bare bones of it.


RotR and Stuff

Posted by Nara , Jan 18 2013 · 666 views

Done with finals. Pretty happy about my grades. But this also means that I have time again.
Going to start up work on the RotR Game, I need to finish the Alamo. I might put in some placeholder NPCs, but I think I'll release a short (emphasis on short) demo afterwards.
Debating on whether or not to allow the demo to include Cerulean City and/or Pokemon.


Busy Busy Busy

I have a perfectly logical explanation for my lack of activity on here.
Unlike most other people, I have my finals in two days as opposed to before Christmas, so teachers are cramming. Which means homework. Add Science Olympiad into that and you've got yourself a negative amount of free time!
I think it's taken a toll on my sanity.
However, that being said, I have almost no time to do anything but school. Which means that, unfortunately, Alpha 0.0.1 of Operation Rally will be pushed back. As for how far back, I can't really say. After finals, I've got an elongated weekend, so maybe some progress will happen there and things will be back on track? I dunno. SciO is at a higher priority than the game right now, but I usually have a lot of downtime during competitions.

I'll get back to work soon, I promise.

If any of you have any tips for identifying trees, specifically determining whether a tree is Eastern or Western US, it'd be much appreciated. =)
