    1. The mod is always right. What the mod says, goes.

    2. If you have a question about any of these rules, or if you have a question about your ban, PM a mod. Do not post about your ban on the forum. If you post about your ban on the forum, you may get banned again.

    3. You are expected to abide by the spirit of these rules. What does that mean? That means that if the rule says "Do not talk about purple things" and you post talking about violet things, or lavender things, then you will get banned.

     Global announcement:
    What is SPAM?

    Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately.

    In Joy Planet SPAM looks like

    - chain letters on News comments, Private Messages, and in the forums, like when someone posts that you have to email this letter to 10 friends because the Admins told you to or everyone will be deleted. <--- 100% not true

    - repeated words or gibberish on News comments and in the forums, like "beef beef beef beef beef beef"

    - games...

    Okay guys, I have accomplished a bit, but my friend Caitlin Dowell has finally decided to team up with me on this as we head into this game. I will start uploading pictures soon, but until then, thank Caitlin for joining the team!

    The game is getting hard to develop on my own and definitely needs her.

    Multiplayer games are a bit on the overwhelming side for me to handle right now. That is an all new ball-game that I don't know about.

    What are you building now?!

    It's a game in Unity 3D Pro that I'm making. Been working on it for a couple of months and will be open sandbox game where you have to survive, and there will be various goals and so on.

    I don't want to explain to much for now, except that it's Singleplayer, For now, but the type of game it is I should be able to add Multiplayer in the future.

    I think it will turn out to be an awesome game,...

    Well, yes, it's been quite a long absence from me on this website.

    I've been so busy it hasn't even been funny, but, there is great news!

    During the summer, I was working 40 hours per week at the fast food chain called Wendy's. Now I'm working about 15 hours a week because of school.

    The last two months of my Sophomore year in High School (Last May) I was doing virtual school. I had completely withdrew from my school because I was bored. Then I worked a lot. Anyways, I came back to school to get more virtual school classes. Now, my mother and I have planned to...

    I'll be a bit busy. x.x

    I'm not dead. Excuse me for my absences.

    Still working on getting the maps together. It's pretty much a pain in the -ahem-.

    Anyways, I'm still working on Tiny World Wars. It might take a while to get it out however.

    I may work on that one side project for Android as well. My magic mouse. Wink

    Thanks for keeping updated and visiting the forum as well! Cheers!

    I got ideas for the client graphics now. Here's a sneakpeak of the log in screen when you first start it now.

    Blog 3-16-210

    I have about 70 more Bitmaps to make for the in-game menus and buttons and bars and etc.

    Plus then I have to redesign the map tiles. Which will take god knows how long. But hey, on the bright side it's coming along again. Tiny World Wars is still in Development, still trying to learn Blender though.

    Also, the music on Eternal Legends will be done by a very...

    YUP! Eternal Legends will have to wait. I don't know anyone who's looking forward to that game anyways. I work on redoing the client for it in my spare time. I spend at least half an hour a day into it, and have been working on it since last summer. I have to update the server for the game too. Which I have to do by hand, and on my older desktop, where it resides on. I hate using that desktop, it's slow as molasses. But it works great as a server computer. Which is what I'm going to be using to run the servers for all future games. It's got a low enough wattage so I can keep it on 24/7.

    That awesome idea for that app I want to do for Android...has to wait....because well.....I have too much on my plate right now. Plus it takes a large amount of networking knowledge for what I want to do. And trying to handle all this at once, is a pain in the rear already.

    Plus, Maya, a 3D autodesk, refuses to work on my laptop. <__>* I will eventually get that computer I need to run it and several other programs for my game design and application design at once without lag or issues. $2,396 computer. Oh boy, I need to figure out a way to make payments on it like I would with a car....

    Two - Three rounds of tornadoes hit the Chattanooga area last night. Watched the up drafts create a tornado with my own eyes. Luckily it didn't come in my direction. It caused damage about a quarter mile from here, throwing power poles and lines onto interstate 24 and flipping cars.

    My heart goes out to all of those affected by the tornadoes these past couple of days.

    But the development goes on. I have decided, to re-do all the graphics for Eternal Legends, and to upgrade the server. This means, I have to re-build the client.

    Eternal Legends might be something...

    I started a campaign to raise money for the company on a website called IndieGoGo.

    This place allows me to put up a campaign, put details about JoyPlanet, and tell what we do so people would be like "Hey, this sounds great, I'll help!"

    This is so I can afford a new, powerful computer for 3D design, not only for games but also for designing 3D animations and interactions.

    I also need the licenses for Corona, and the developer accounts for mobile platform publishing.

    Game and application development is not cheap. I'm trying to raise $2500 for everything....

    Okay, well I thought of a GREAT new app I can make. Eternal Legends is kind of on hold right now, due to me having no clue what I want to do with the client right now.

    Anyways, It's an app for Android. I already started it last night, but any tablet owner will love it.

    Also, I have started some concept art of some small 3D games I want to make. But....
    I need to use 3Ds Max and/or blender, and my laptop doesn't have the processing power, ram, and graphics to do so.

    My funds, are extremely low, as in, I have none. And I need to work several jobs so I can start...

    Alas! I have completed the re-design on both these forums, and the main website!

    Forum: I did a whole lot of messing with these forums. New Navigation Bar made from scratch, new background, new title backgrounds, etc. All I have left to do on the forum is add in all the categories!

    Main website: For those whom don't know, the main website is on; www.wix.com/joyplanetstudios/jpstudios ; Or you could go to joyplanet.weebly.com and get redirected to the main website. Whichever works best for...
