Hey again, Happy Halloween. Quick status update for you all here on the main site. I just posted the new DA stuff, and I think that came out nicely, so check that out. As for the upcoming story set though, I have decided to delay posting the previews of that another week or so for assorted reasons.
A long time ago, Patreon charged for monthly pages at the start of the month and only then; so I tried to get things posted shortly before that to accommodate the timing. However, for quite a while now, Patreon has allowed the “charge up front” option, which is to say that you can now pay to get in anytime, if the owner of the page has that enabled, as I do. So there really isn’t much reason for me to push so hard to post previews before the start of the month anymore; as I tend to go back and add/fix things regardless and nobody gets the full thing until main rewards go out a little after the 10th or so of the month.
Long story short, I made the renders and went to do the final text last night and found something to fix in a render, as I often do. However, when I went to fix it I was reminded of how large and messy this one major scene location is, and of the fact that this will be a major recurring location in the chapters to come. I see nothing but trouble with this as it is in the future, and though I did get it working for now I may not be able to later when more things are in the scene. So due to all this, I decided to go back and redo that half of the story set; which is ironically not the location of the main content scene in the chapter. The main scene is quite nice, and I really like it; but I can’t leave the other half of the chapter as it is – it would be awkward and crappy to have to change an established location later on due to my limited render memory. (I can’t just post what I have since the second setting itself may change entirely when I redo it.) So I will fix this in the coming week and redo that scene/location – and in addition to that I will see about adding in a mini-scene to that part of the chapter that I mentioned to my patrons both a while back and earlier today with more detail. Very slim chance that one of the new DA images I posted is a tease for that mini-scene.
Anyway, sorry for the slight delay, but I think it will all be fore the best in the end; I want this first chapter of the new story arc to be good and this really needs to be fixed now rather than later. I should be back with new polls in a few days though.
