Devlog #21 - Bulletin Boards and Cameras
Been a little while, hasn’t it? Sorry about that. What if I showed off some of the new things I’ve been working on to make it up to you? How does a town bulletin board and a new camera item sound?
The bulletin board has been on my to-do list for a long time. The idea is that town events and news will be posted here by the townsfolk. They can also leave requests here for you to complete for them.
Accepting one of these tasks will add it to the new “Request Tracker”. If you can complete these tasks in time the person that requested it will reward you and they’ll be happy that you helped them. If you fail to complete it they won’t even know you were trying! So it’s win-win. Unlike person requests, you won’t lower your relationship with them for failing them.
The types of request include gathering items that they need, capturing animals for them, hunting a certain amount of animals. That sort of thing. But there is one more request type I’m excited about. Photo requests!
This brings me to the new item. The camera!
The camera can be bought at a certain point in the game. Once you have it you’ll be able to take some sick snaps of whatever you want!
The townsfolk may occasionally ask for a photo of a certain plant or animal on the island. You’ll have to be sneaky when you are trying to get a picture of animals that are spooked easily.
I have a plan for a room in the town’s museum that you’ll be able to show off certain pictures on the walls. I would love for you to invite some friends to your town to admire your works of art.
Those are some of the things I’m excited to show off. I’ve decided that these posts are probably going to be monthly going forward (they kind of have been recently anyway) I’ll hopefully have more to show off that way. I do post on my twitter a bit more regularly showing off little videos here and there. You can find me at twitter.com/dinkumdev.
Thanks for reading!
