(June 20 to June 26, 2022)

Welcome dear readers to the latest issue of the Weekly Gazette! Here in the Gazette, we give you the news in brief of what occurred in the past week as well as provide any news happening in Save-Point itself

Official Area
Occasions
There were a number of birthdays this week, starting with those of Pherione, GrueMaster and GetDurpedOn. But that was only the start of the birthday celebrations this week as tfieldmusic and Lect shared the same birthday. And later, Justvisiting and theGRIM had slice of birthday cake to share. After that, jubhub731, neptis, quantumpanic and RHVMBI all had the same birthday at the same time. And lastly, PsychicToaster enjoyed his confectionary goodness..


General Chat
Within this week's News of the World, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the 1973 Roe vs Wade Abortion Precedent, a vote of 6-3 reverting authority back to the states. China announced it plans to supply Russia with aircraft parts while members of the G7 plans to ban all gold trade with Russia. Ghislaine Maxwell now being on suicide watch is another development of the Socialite convicted of underage sex trafficking. And a sixty-six man was denied being able to donate blood because he refused to answer whether he was pregnant.


Forum Games & Nonsense
This week, DerVVulfman strayed from humorous tales of Dungeons and Dragons adventures gone awry, for TALK ABOUT BLOWN UP IN MY FACE this week is a tale from Mage: The Awakening. Set in a modern world with magic, the teller of this tale displayed a good reason why their game master should think battle encounters through.



Games Development
Development Discussion
This week, a couple of our members have been busy if you've been following What's up with them. Kyonides worked upon a menu for one system, then began working on an audio systems options menu, then was looking for some inspiration for another work to create. And a bit of back and forth was issued between he and DerVVulfman on another potential work. After that, Remi-chan returned after getting a new PC, and she did not waste time as she released two remastered cutscenes from her game, and showed off her new VTuber avatar and a short piece on the relational dynamics of two of her universe's femme fatales.

A serious discount has been discovered as RPGMAKER XP IS ONLY $2.50 on STEAM!. A special price for a limited time, the promotion ends on July 7th. At the same time, extreme low prices exist for RPGMaker VX all others prior to RPGMaker MZ.


Upcoming Projects
Be ready for some new, free online action with Necromancers Online. Presented to us by at0msk, you play a Necromancer who raises creatures from the dead to fight and subjugate, and even other fellow necromancer players you encounter. Currently, there are just over 20 creatures to encounter, but more will be coming.

Be ready for new resources for Smile Game Builder. In the works right now, JayRay is working dilligently upon The Great Forest, the first installment of his BEST (Biome Environment Seamproof Tileset) series of 3D Poly graphics. He promises over 100 seamproof tiles that can be aligned together for millions of combinations for your 3D maps.



Material Development
Scripts Database
If you are in the need for a screen to control your game's audio levels, then KShlenam by kyonides will be for you. Available in all three RPGMaker ruby-script systems, it has a graphic bar system to contol music, effects and ambient backgrounds. And the RPGMaker XP version also includes a bonus dash/run feature.

If you wish to give a bit more risk to your players, kyonides's KBackFire script should fit your needs. Now, a hero attempting to use a skill when he should be better trained may now suffer for his attempts of use.Originally made for RPGMaker XP, the thread was updated to handle RPGMaker VX near the end of the week.


Resources Database
A new source of graphic textures has arisen as we have been gifted by Jay Ray's Local Texture Source. Imagery from local sources, currently from wetland preserves with rocky landscapes and lush greent to view. And of all this, he asks is to fllow his CC0 license and give mention of his name in your credits.

For anyone interested in 3D polygon models for your games, JayRay discovered Drummyfish's RPG Items 3d models. A collection of low-poly items in various sizes are available for free under Drummyfish's CC0 license.



Well, that's it for this week.
