The weekly market (held on Saturdays) is very important to the player, since that’s the only time they can buy certain items. A lot of these items you’ll have to use for your tailoring, such as cloths, dyes, silk and even clothing patterns so you can actually sew some clothes. It starts from 10:00 till 15:00 and it’ll be there again by next week. Most of the town will come and visit the market as well, though I hope I have enough space!
Anyways, I finally got off my butt and made the actual market, minus the NPCs. It’s probably still got a few bugs (since I will forcefully kick the player out once it is 15:00, and the player can’t enter unless it’s 10:00), but I’ll deal with that another time.
I have also decided to try to complete a map every day, because there’s not that many maps left to do until I’m done (excluding seasonal maps). Once I’ve got the maps out of the way, I can start working on the portrait system, or start adding in some faceless NPCs that will walk around based on a schedule. I might just end up doing both at the same time.
Either way, I’m progressing! No, not enough to tell you when it’s out, or give a time frame for the Spring demo. I’ll tell you when I’ve got the NPC’s schedules done as well as the portraits, then I can give you an estimate.
