General Chat
Old is new once more, if you asked DerVVulfman "What Are Youtubing?" this week. Recently, he found another Tom and Jerry cartoon skit that was reworked with new, yet now-familiar, faces once more.

For the U.S., the News of the World was mostly over House Speaker Johnson agreeing to foreign aid to Ukraine, Israel and backing now-controversial FISA warrants and his refrain from securing the southern border, such causing many Republicans to cry foul. But other U.S. news was the beginning of Former President Trump's New York court case, over 90 Jurors had to be scoured through to fill the minimum 12 Juror, 6 alternate quota. And during that time, some attempted to delete online histories to hide their bias against the former President. After Iran's assault against Israel with a 300-drone salvo, Israel eventually launched targeted strikes in Southern Iran around airports and suspected nuclear facilities. As Saudi Arabia sees it, Iran is behind the Gaza war. And after Germany's Parliament Speaker displayed anti-Israeli sentiment, calls for his resignation exploded. Meanwhile, U.S. President Biden took credit that he prevented Israel from invading Haifa, despite Haifa being a city in Israel itself. But more recently, more scepticism rose when Biden claimed his uncle was eaten by cannibals after crashing his plane around New Guinea. Violence and anti-semetic protest hit the streets everywhere, college students protesting as they chose to side with Hamas itself, and stabbings in Australia connected to terrorism occur while 'Gas the Jews' rallies return in Sydney. Human trafficking continues to harass nations, over 1000 in New York illegally demanding Green Cards as they also demand less police. DHS Mayorkas grilled over fliers given to Illegal Aliens to re-elect Biden, Canada sees new records in illegal apprehensions last month with nearly half from India alone. Paris removing migrant camps just short of the Olympics. And an EU chief lays claim that Russia is the one spearheading illegal immigration to destabilize Europe. The war between Ukraine and Russia continues. Aid packages from the U.S., fighters from Denmark, and the recent downing of a Russian Strategic Bomber strengthen's Ukraine's stance. However, President Zelensky cannot let his guard down as Poland Security foiled Russia's latest assassination attempt. The NPR Editor who lamented over RussiaGate last week now suspended over calling out the media, Qatar re-evaluating Israel/Hamas mediations amidst election politics, Mexico's media engine silent over a border city's kidnapping spree, Haiti seeking billions in reparations over France's slavery of their citizens and the extorted 'indemnity' fee, troops abandoned in Niger by the U.S. State Department, over $8.5 Million in Heroin originating from Iran seized by Bulgarian officials, and more hit this week's news.

Tech Talk
This week, Electric Vehicles hit major roadblocks in the News of the Cyber World, be it plunging sales worldwide, Former Obama chiefs calling out the venture as a job killer, or recent dangerous flaws. Complaints about AI hit the arts as Netflix was accused of using AI generated images in documentaries while movie distributor with a strong reputation sponsoring indie companies gets backlash for using AI art for promtional artwork for movies. And China works to put a stranglehold over social media, launching its Instagram-Killer and ordering Apple itself to censor free speech. How Wikipedia was ruined by NPR's CEO, Meta's newest AI bot impersonating humans online, Apple's feud with Fortnite's owner over a 2021 injunction, the Miss "Artificial Intelligence" Beauty Pagent, and more hit this week's cybernews.

This week, FBI Director Wray said at a security conference that Chinese Hackers, working on behalf of their government, have made plans to establish the U.S.'s infrastructure. Wray spoke extensively about Volt Typhoon's massive hacking operation, and their intended tactic to induce panic among the American populous as China plans to dominate the world stage.

Games Development
Development Discussion
Coming into Save-Point, you get to know What's Up among some of the RMers around. And this past week, Remi-chan had been working upon a revised collection of pamphlets for Fantasia's menu sytem, all 104 now been completely revised. Yuo can watch her youtube video to see how the animated pamphlets will appear.

Within the Ruby Scripting topic, kyonides describes how a party applying a skill or item upon its own party members as error prone. That is not to say that the basic mechanics is itself in error, but that additional code may be desired if one were to make a custom damaging effect work upon their foes rather than the accidental application of their own squad.

Material Development
Scripts Database
An update was made to kyonides' KItemTeachSkill collection of scripts. Now it is possible to remove the item that grants the player access to the skill, thus reversing the process. And for those using the RPGMaker XP edition, a bug was made in relation to a residual item garnered.

Based on a script by RD12 over a decade ago, DerVVulfman released Terra Blocks: Terraria Styled Block Engine. A sideview system, you have the ability to destroy actual map tiles, or add new tiles based on material in your inventory. Axes can be set up to chop down trees. Add shovels to dig through dirt, or pick axes to go through stone. However, there is no ABS system like Minecraft or Terraria.

Well, that's it for this week.
