Calling all Writers!
« on: July 23, 2010, 02:52:10 am »

As Zythen is calling for additional programmers, he suggested weekly meetings between them. I like this idea; it's a good one. If the HHS3 writers wanted to gather together and begin meeting weekly, we could start to figure out what work we'd like to do and help one another with it. It would also let us know where we all stand, helping us to coordinate our efforts and not conflict with one another.

Since the programmers are going to make it all, and Zythen is currently the closest thing we have to a project head, if he wants to set down guidelines, that would be good too.

It would be best if we set up a time for weekly meetings and exchanged contact information so we can begin working together.

Currently I can be reached via Dalnet in the #spacebattles chatroom at nearly any hour of the day. We may want to set up a Hentai Highschool chat for our own purposes in the future so anyone on the project can join and discuss the project or whatever else we find interesting.

This would also be a good place to run our writing by other people so we can get feedback.

Whether you're a prolific writer or just want to write an event or two, I'd like to see all of us get together. Feel free to share when you are available. I'll see about setting up a chatroom.

I like to write but generally need a little direction as to what people want to see.  I'd be interested in joining this group of writers and I'm generally free all day on weekends and during the evenings on weekdays.

Doing a chat room sounds interesting.

I have created the chatroom #HHS3 on Dalnet.

For those that do not know how to connect to a chat client, you must have a program to connect (MIRC, Chatzilla, etc). Then you must connect to the server Dalnet and then to the channel #HHS3.

If you need further instruction, please ask.

Zythen, you get operator status the second you step in, so feel free to stop by soon. This'll be a great place for you to talk to people on the spot if you want to speak to a specific individual or run ideas by people, so I look forward to seeing you there.

Other operators will be added if we need them.

I have been writing event suggestions for the game. I'm ready and willing to cooperate anyway I can. Personally, I don't like chatrooms, because I find them time consuming and not very effective. I prefer to contact other members through the forum or by e-mail. If anyone has any question, suggestion, comment, whatever e-mail me at jjsx1980AThotmail.com.

The current status of what I'm doing is:
Events created = 60
6-longer events (4 still need pictures)
54-quick events

Focus:
Now I'm concentrating in creating quick events, as much as possible. From my point of view, it would be good for the game if we could gather, at least 260 quick events, so we could have a different event for each week day of the year, and as many different pictures as we can find, for the spy cams, so we wouldn't be seeing the same pictures over and over again.
I will leave more complex events for later.

i think that right now he is not much interested in events developers.
i will do something when it will be possibile, but for the moment i will wait... i know just the basis of programming, so i can just add events.

It is unlikely the events will be added into the game the instant they are written, Clef, but the basic idea is that we are gathering them all here so that when the code is written, we can choose the events we want to add in on a case per case basis.

It certainly doesn't hurt anything to write new events, and it is in fact a good thing if we have events planned out beforehand. That way, once the system is stable, we can quickly insert the events and move onto playtesting.

For Dolphin3000: I encourage you to post your events here on the forum and their associated images in the media section. We had some bugs over the past few days but you should be able to do everything now.

EDIT: Ah, I see you already have.

When writers meetings occur on IRC, they will simply be to have a roundtable discussion where everyone can chime in and help confirm writing direction for the project, or somewhere where you can get someone to look over an event you just wrote and give real time feedback before you post on the forum. It is not intended to be where the bulk of our work is done. That will be here.

The circumstance that new events that are posted or suggested at the moment are not yet added to the game within a certain timespan does not mean to imply that you are neither meant nor encouraged to come up with them; I'm confident that both Zythen and everyone else welcomes any additional content for HHS3 - at least I do.

@Topic: I want to add that an installed client application - while convenient - is not really necessary anymore, there are web-based ones around, one example being available here. (Full URL: http://irc2go.com/webchat/?net=DALnet&room=%23HHS3 - you can append "&nick=[nick]&name=[name]" to it, substituting your preferred nick for [nick] and your name or the same nick for [name] - this way, you can in future access the chat with one click)

For the people not used to IRC, you can change your name with "/nick [new name]", join other chat channels with "/join [channel]" and leave channels with "/leave".

Edit: An alternative to irc2go.com: The official DAL.net Java chat. (Right side, "Chat Now")

Excellent work. I will notify Zythen about this when he gets up if you're not around, and we'll see about integrating it into the forum, if it's possible.

To get the link for the images from the media section of the site. Click the Media tab -> Albums(above the Official Gallery, next to home) -> Choice of album -> Click the title of the image. From here you can just link the web address(i usually do this) or scroll down and take the direct link given in the item info.

I know this thread is old, but I'm interested in doing a bit of writing for this game.

You should go to the IRC channel whenever you can, and maybe write 10 generic events just to show that you actually have dedication in working with the content. I'll give you a gist of what we have planned and we've done then. You can just PM me the events or something, but I should be around the IRC channel regularly around 10pm-2am PST and random times throughout the day if you have any questions.
