Theme based play and skins Scifi spaceodyssey

Postby Ivo » Fri Aug 23, 2013 1:59 pm

Since, we have received we are returning the favor. For the scifi Geeks. A lot of time has been spent rewriting some of the existing action cards to fit theme based play. Also a few additions of our own. There are 3-4 themes we are working out.

The first theme to be shared is space odyssey This includes the skin, music suggestions, and of course the action files. These files are meant to be played stand alone (not with basic) but staying engaged can be added for more lower play. Thanks to DD for a lot of ideas I played with, and to Don, and everyone.

To those who downloaded within the first 40 minutes of my posting the actions files- please redownload
I wanted you to know that I ran the validation tool on them again on Aug 23 2013! I had been working on them and had forgotten before posting. Thank you for your patience.

Build Action Icons
A bit of scifi history the Dance Hall icon is from Raquel Welch 1970 space girl dance. And I'll let you figure out all the rest. You may need to rename the icons to get them to load correctly.

Help appreciated I can't seem to rename two property icons that keep returning to the old cabaret and toy store. I've tried different spelling if anyone knows what title those two property icons are in the original that would be very helpful. In case you were wondering what they are supposed to be in my icons- cabaret is Quark's because of the dabo girls and toy store is actually a zatnicketel from stargate.

EDIT= updated icons have been placed into original post get a fresh copy or rename this as listed in one of the follow up posts.

Be Sure to get an updated copy of the build property icons- or rename your files cabaret should be StripClub.bmp and toy toys or toystore should be ToyStore.bmp

Hi

I LOVE the SciFi theme ... it looks like lots of fun ... very clever ... thanks.

Technical Set up Question .... (maybe more for Don)

How do I set up the files?
I'd like to "have the option" to play a theme, or the regular game. I can certainly do that by putting the action file in the actions folder, and putting the skin in the skins folder, but what to do with the new icons. If I put them in the actions folder, then EVERYTIME we play, we get the SciFi icons. Am I missing something?

Is there a place to select a "folder" with the icons in it? So you could use default icons or new icons?

Ideally, I think it would be great to have a "theme" folder, and under that, have "actions","skins",'icons" and the game let you point to that theme folder for the files it needs. Am I missing something about to set up the game?

The theme folder is a good idea, but currently your only option would be to move the bitmap files out of the Actions folder and into a different one.

Just to help you - yes you do have to do a little bit of file and icon exchanging if you use it on the same computer- we have a laptop as well so we've set one theme on that and another on our regular.

I've also set up a folder system it is like this-- Themes> And under themes are all my themes with music files for different music each theme has it's own icon file and it's own background music and action music files. PLEASE note I also have a file called original with a copy of all the original set up. Then I just copy and past the icons into the action file and it will just copy theme or ask to replace if you've had a different theme icons with the same names- I just say yes knowing I've got my theme file folders as a backup of all my icons. Then I just remove and reset the music per theme as well. (This is also why I've set two different themes on different laptops)

Of course to play the original without the updated icons you'll have to delete them from the action folder.

skins of course can just be in the skins folder.
Music to my ears that someone else may enjoy it!

WOW- DON themes folder- that would be cool but it'd take some code you might be able to make a code that would even run differently named icons as if they were the original- for example choosing theme play - choose your icon for hotel- then the script would indicate to play phlostonparadise as hotel. -- This might well be a major code session though and not worth the time.- I'm so large with not knowing- I'm envisioning dhtml code and php in my brain, even then I never when beyond basics! I'm not familiar with java scripting at all so no idea how major the code script would be on theme based items. It works fine for me now as is -- I like knowing where files and data application items are stored and playing with these.

What would say is the level of intensity for these themes? My partner and I are definitely high level action players. I use the iphone version so I am unable to access the details and action of the profiles so I just have to always wait and see.

Don't know your rating scale- these are a variety, you'd have to go through and eliminate those you think are too low. The category that is heaviest in the 5-8 range. 9 levels were harder to make. If you were looking for hard core BDSM or anal play there isn't much there. If you have an editor then you could customize your own.

The idea behind this was the unique sex organ called the brain and playing out a theme. I think if you download the skin you'll get an idea of the overlay. Some take offs on fith element the movie - such as you are vacationing at phloston paradise (hotel) or free kiss by an orion slave girl, or you are the communication officer etc and there is a failure to communicate verbally . . .

plans are to make more and customize it more, but I have no time now. Not sure I would share everything- this is a basic start. I really encourage you to get an editor if you don't have one as then you could add your own categories and cards and make it much more personal and fun for you and your partner. :D

I've just added a new revised bjf file called spaceLG.bjf to the initial post. This has a new category called spaceport along with a custom build icon. All new action cards were done by me. I've still left credits on all cards that were based off others work even those that I changed.

Please note this is not an append to the older version or you will end up with duplicates. It is just all the files plus the new custom category files.


Play on! :D Enjoy Space geeks!

To the six or seven people who downloaded the new file-- please be aware that a few cards had validation problems. I've just redone - if anyone finds a card that has problems please feel free to let me know which action card.


New full spaceLG has been re uploaded, sorry for the inconvenence, I'm still new at getting the action cards just right.
