(May 9 to February 15, 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
Glancing in the forum, you may find statci having joined. But with merely two words for the introduction, DerVVulfman recommended the new member provide enough content so as not to get his post zapped.

Glad tidings always occur each week, and among those are the birthdays of our members, such as those of renekokkie's, Maxios's, Someone's and phillip890's. And if you thought that the week would start off with a large celebration only to peter down, you were wrong as Lupinos, Noctis, yogshoggoth and Fox420x also had birthdays to celebrate. But that was only the start of the birthday celebrations this week as BeJeremiah and cdrom all shared the same birthday, as did eddie434 the very next day. And after that, beminsano was able to enjoy some birthday cake. And this Saturday, the birthday of MikiIsAway had come and gone.


Forum Games & Nonsense
If coordinating a Pen and Paper RPG story was meant to be easy, the game master would not have had so many headaches when he tried to coerce his party into Killing the Last Dragon. A new story from the internet discovered by DerVVulfman tells a tale how an intended expedition went comically awry for many sessions.



Games Development
Development Discussion
Our game developers seem to be busy if you're wondering What's up among our RMers. DerVVulfman continued working on the tactical battle system and the requested Suikoden Window addition. And nearly done, he stated he would be releasing the Tactical system itself. Kyonides released a screenshot of the Experience Points shop from his new KExp XP script. And Remi-chan posted a newly remastered video involving one of the three sisters in her current project now that Siletrea has been cast for her voice. Longer than it was before, Remi-chan felt the original was not long or impactful enough.


Tutorials
The first of its kind, JayRay posted a tutorial on How to create a minimap in Smile Game Builder. The basis duplicated from a game available on Steam, his tutorial is a multi-post thread with visuals on the use of scaled-down screenshots, and the code you would need to apply to an event system. An animated gif depicting the final result can be found at the end of the lesson.



Material Development
Scripts Database
A system he has worked on for weeks, DerVVulfman has now released the Zenith Tactical Battle System Plus (ZTBS+). A revised version of the decade old tactical system by Zenith and Mac, it still boasts ease of integration with map-based combat using default charactersets while having more features added, and the support for two status ailments that were previously overlooked.


Resources Database
New artistic tilesets have been added to the Massive Library of Free Images for Everyone that Eric Matyas is working on, presenting a dark greenish bark surface, a rounded brickwork set of tiles, and a cobalt hued piece of concrete that has some issues with how it was being smoothed.



Creativity Section
Music and Audio
This week, Eric Matyas continued to Share his Original Music, providing us with two new compositions. His first, entitled "Strings of Sadness" allows one to delve into the remembrance of past tragic affairs. And his second, entitled "Country Doo Wop", which gives a sense of a folk swing.


Art and Design
Behold the Goddess of Chaos and Garbage within Remi-chan's Neato Arty thread thing. Remi-chan's latest work, Trash Apple, is a cartoonish rendering of her persona and she included a speed draw of her endeavor.



Well, that's it for this week.
