As for the Utility category, there would need to more than just the HLPM as the clear winner for that to justify it. In other words, there needs to be another really good and useful utility before entertaining that.

Alint?

And I'm assuming that for BoE scenarios we're just totaling up the number of towns and outdoor sections, right?

BoA and BoE zones are tabulated in the same way.

I suggested in the chat a "utility" category, not a "utility scenario" category. That includes Alint, the 3D Editor, etc.

I'm working on something for BOE that should be out by November.

Gaaa! I just jinxed myself. But count me in anyway.

Nothing so dramatic. My cat likes to sleep on the monitor because it's warm. She's been sick lately and threw up into the monitor.

At any rate, I've add a utility category. Utilities can be any computer based tool and not necessarily a BoX scenario. Utilities will also be ineligible for Best Scenario.

Sadly, I don't think I'll finish my scenario. In the Lyceum chat, my plot was mocked so hard by Ash that I don't see a point in making it now.

JUST when I had hopes of reviving BoE once more!

Still, I'm willing to judge, haven't done that before.

Was it constructive criticism? If yes: see what you can change to make it better; if no: ignore him.

No! What you're supposed to do is help us revive BoA!

I hate to say this, but I am currently in stasis, and my scenario may be delayed or forgotten. My iBook of 2 years died in a big way last night, and I'm going to have to wait and see what can be saved. If my scenario-in-progress is too far gone, then I have nothing, and I will be hard-pressed to start from scratch.

This is incredibly annoying, 'cause I'm on Spring Break and this was supposed to be the one time of year that I'd be able to work on it!

(The one, tiny, little upside is that I have DoK stored on my Freewebs site, and can retrieve it at my leisure.)

EDIT: Huzzah! 'Tis fixed, and I miraculously lost nothing!!! Let the scripting continue!

I have just started my first small scale scenario which will be focused on plot and puzzles rather than pure action. Even so, I'll hopefully get a few battle cutscenes in as well.

As I have never attempted anything like this before, I can't guarantee at this stage whether or not I'll have to abandon it before completion.

Obviously, it will be in the newcomer category.

This is indeed frustrating. My theatre fell victim to sustained idiocy and has been momentarily abandoned in favor of something else. Luckily I'm currently working on something else (not the title of the scenario) so all is not lost. It will be on the small side.

My planned contest scenarios haven't experienced setbacks yet.

I'm currently trying to figure out a way to make the plot of one scenario more interesting. The scenario is otherwise nearly finished.

Dammit. Are you deliberately trying to make me feel bad here, or is that just a convenient side effect? :P

Seriously, you don't need to dump the scenario. Just change some plans. I'm always more than happy to help with that sort of thing.

Speaking of helping out, I volunteer my services as an advisor/tester/storyline consultant, if they are wanted.

Quite frankly, Dikiyoba will be happy to see any scenario with a plot and that doesn't involve evil Vahnatai, monster plagues, or undead hordes.

Would Dikiyoba be happy with a scenario that has a plot centered wholly on good Vahnatai and live hordes?

Dintiradan: No.

Ash: Haven't thrown it away yet, can talk when I can find time.

Seriously, though, I made 1/3 of the scenario, I can't rewrite it now!

Good vahnatai, yes, since I am creating a scenario involving some. I doubt it will be out any time soon. Live hordes are okay too as long as they aren't ridiculous.

Edit: "Vahnatai" still isn't a proper noun. And Dikiyoba removed a sentence that made no sense whatsoever.

You might like my scenario in the works. It has... misinformed Vahnatai. Unfortunately, misguided Vahnatai do almost as much damage as evil Vahnatai.
