- RMRK Monthly Spotlight -
FEBRUARY 2015



Welcome to the first RMRK Monthly Spotlight! Just as the title suggests, there is a spotlight that will come monthly, operated by our very own machine-certified (not really but ok) moderators. Each month, we will cast the beaming and glorious spotlight upon very deserving, unsung heroes. The spotlight is going to have three general sections: 1. Great Contributions & Resources, 2. Games You Really Should Play, 3. Heroes of the Month. *Note: Due to this being a new thing, not all of these spotlights are necessarily from February!

Without further ado, let's do this.


Great Contributions & Resources
*Anything related to resources (scripts, graphics, music, etc) to be used in games or other media, as well as contributions that are made for fun and enjoyed by the community.
Etude87's Menu Editor
by Etude87
Even the best work-of-art games need their own menu design, and this little gem has got you covered. Here's a list of some of the features: edit menu commands, actor status windows, window position and size. You can also add things, such as: background images, time, gold, and name windows.

Click here for the VX version!

Journal Scene [VXA]
by VianoceGames
If you're working on creating an epic RPG adventure, chances are you'll need a journal to keep track of your player's progress. Journal scripts are rewarding, but can take up a lot of time to set up. This particular script is easy to use and gets the job done.


Meku's Songies
by Mekuso
Rmrk has become strangely popular among musician game makers in the past. Quietly, another one has slipped among us! If you want to hear some pretty neat stuff, Meku's songies are quite lovely!

Chaos Symphony
by pacmn (Pacman)
On the very last day of February (depending on your timezone, I guess), Pacman unleashes his greatness with a surprise song. This Symphony is well-designed and beautiful, truly a great piece! Many of our members enjoyed listening to its snazzy rhythm -- and we think you will, too!



Games You Really Should Play
*See your game here? Be proud! This is our way of showing off your hours of hard work that blossomed into the beautiful project you have today! As for everyone else: Play that game!
The Worldbuilder's Fate [VX]
by FlipelyFlip
The Worldbuilder's Fate is a beautiful game with a story that offers a lot of promise. Keep an eye out for the demo - this game already looks really, really great (and not just visually).
Speaking of visual greatness...


METAL GEAR SOLID XP INFANTRY OPS [XP]
by ChainsawMelody
Like Metal Gear Solid? Well, you'll probably like this, too! Not only is this game cool-looking, but it seems to contain a lot of interesting features that replicate MGS 2. This ain't your normal fan game.
Behold the awesomeness:


Legend of the Moonhunter [VX]
by Geokoer
Years of work have been poured into this project, and the creator's dedication really shows! Legend of the Moonhunter is great at setting the environment, as well as providing an interesting cast of characters.
A look at the atmospheric world of Legend of the Moonhunter:


Grave Prosperity: Redux [Construct2]
by justabox21
Grave Prosperity is a horror game, designed with incredible 3-D graphics in the Construct2 engine. Before it became the masterpiece that we see today, this game was originally made in rpg maker...and STILL had 3-D graphics (what sorcery was that?). Aside from the 3-D graphics, the game has many mechanics in place to polish up the dark world justabox21 has crafted.





Heroes of the Month
*Here, we'll recognize specific members for any other contributions, assistance, or general awesomness that they kindly share with the rest of us internet peoples.

SoulPour777
Take a look at the scripting section and I'm sure you'll see tons of SoulPour's work. SoulPour is a member that shows up bearing gifts and asks for nothing in return. The spotlight shines upon you, SoulPour! We greatly appreciate the contributions you have made to the forums!

boe
Boe's crazy alter-ego tends to speak in a louder volume than the half of him that roams the forums, helping random strangers with their scripting issues. Well, we'd like to shine the light on this peaceful version of boe, and give him the love that he rightfully deserves.




See you all next month! In the meantime, please do not cease being awesome.


See any resources, games or people that you think deserve to bask in the glorious spotlight? Please post here and let us know!

Wow, this is a great idea! I wonder what happen to the RPGmaker version of Grave Prosperity: Redux [Construct2]. I would like to see 3-D graphics being used in a RPGmaker engine. That is amazing witchcraft right there.

I am shocked I made the spotlight. I would be lying if I said I didn't get excited over seeing my script on there, but I really didn't see that coming when I opened this tread. In fact it didn't even occur to me. Thanks for my "5 mins of fame!" lol

Well I am happy to contribute when/if I can. I actually have plans on expanding the journal script a little bit to add sub-quests and maybe collectibles. But for now I am going to leave it as it is because I am still working on my time event system to add seasons. I also want to make my time event system update the ages of the characters in my biography script.

Congrats to all that have had the spotlight of glory shone down upon them from the top of the mountain-peak that is RMRK... Or something like that... But seriously, great job; there's most certainly talent on the forums still, and it's great to see people deserving of it to formally get some recognition :)

Yeah, we probably should have advertised this a bit better. I guess it doesn't help that many of us got the email in our spam boxes. ;~; Myself included...even though I was the one that wrote the email. :mad:

It's really just a matter of making it consistent, We spent so much time discussing doing something like this that we didn't do it until now. We should have been doing this for years.

Internet speak is for miserable internet people.  I like how you sound normal, sane, and less than pretentious.
