welp, shortquest quest seems to be doing well
so i'm deciding to make a few new quests

this is pretty much to get input on some ideas that could be brewing and take opinions and suggestions, so talk away peeps
Expand all images
No. 34284 ID: f7aa74

alright hellions, here's mai first idea

i'm thinkin, DEATHRACE, like that movie, but it'll be similar to a hotwheels track and with quest characters from other quests

whadya think gais?

No thank you.

The more important question, Indigo, is why are you wearing Steele's jacket, whilst half naked?
No. 34292 ID: b6c6fc

personally I don't think it's a bad idea, as long as you ask permission before using other peoples characters

but I do think it's wise to finish one quest before starting another

it's cotton and dosn't wrinkle in the wash, look i even have another shirt.
No. 34347 ID: 2563d4

My main problems with that idea are:
- What is the actual game component? What interesting decisions would suggestors be able to make? Who would they be controlling?
- Co-ordinating all the authors involved to avoid stamping on any precious toes, running roughshod over canon, or---most damaging---triggering any of the numerous landmines of fan dumb if people's waifus don't perform every bit as well as they imagine. (Basically it's the fight thread with wheels.)
- Why a hotwheels track? That seems kind of arbitrary and restrictive.

I suspect Quest Wacky Races would probably just work better as a fanart bandwagon or oC topic; ITQ antics at most. (It's actually half-heartedly been one of these: >>/draw/2692 )

Y'know, come up with a good double-zero driver for /quest/ to control, possibly an original character do not steal for this quest, and I reckon this could work if you could handle the (not inconsiderable) amount of wrangling required.
No. 34353 ID: 8c73c8

yeah, then it would be about figuring out how to beat the other characters instead of a fight over who's waifu is better.

>-What is the actual game component? What interesting decisions would suggestors be able to make? Who would they be controlling?

The gameplay is the same suggest an action style, instead of hey move or hey go that way, it’s mostly “hey there’s a guy coming up on your (side) use (super kewl gadget) and whoop him.

Everything is costumizable, except the track and the enemies. Meaning the suggestors could make ANYTHING be a driver, and he could drive ANYTHING that they could possibly think of. This is done with a customization system that I would come up with.

They would be controlling the player’s actions, and maybe the npcs that are his mechanic(s).

>- Co-ordinating all the authors involved to avoid stamping on any precious toes, running roughshod over canon, or---most damaging---triggering any of the numerous landmines of fan dumb if people's waifus don't perform every bit as well as they imagine. (Basically it's the fight thread with wheels.)

Alright, then I’ll start the quest with iconic creatures from the wiki until I get permission from a few authors… pretty whoever is willing to let me talk to them at a time I can be on.

>- Why a hotwheels track? That seems kind of arbitrary and restrictive.

I’m using ‘hotwheels track’ as a visual metaphor, have you seen the old hotwheel track sets? THEY WERE FREAKING NUTS, gravity defying turns and flips and loops and all sort of crazy stuff… I HAD A MUSTANG HOTWHEEL TAKE A 90 DEGREE TURN INTO A TORNADO TRACK SUSPENDED FROM MY CEILING!!!!!!!!
Now obviously it’s not gonna look EXACTLY like a hotwheels track, but it will be based off of some of the sets that I used to collect.

Some guys had P&P and some had this, I guess...
No. 34366 ID: a41aaf

For a 'cannonball run' type race, don't forget the usefullness of having a hostile host to the race. Not only are the participants competing to win the race, but at the same time cooperating to avoid being arrested by the local police/blown to the shit by the local tinpot dictator/etc.

Video definitely related.
No. 34372 ID: 1f2692


no, i'm thinking more the new deathrace, i remember the old one, but my story wouldn't flow well with all the outside interractions...

and think about it, if the racer was still running amok in public, he'd be able to NOT do crazy death racing.
No. 34375 ID: 6fdb61

>I get permission from a few authors…

Well you have my permission, not that I invented much... You can use any of my characters that you like.
No. 34376 ID: c71597

But part of the fun in the old one was that they wanted to do crazy death racing. Or well most of them did. The drivers were freaking crazy. The fans were crazy, almost the entire world was crazy and the ones who pointed out how crazy it was got locked up in asylums. And it had awesome car designs.

>some furry anime thing
The best summary of Redline I've heard so far was "a mix of Cannonball Run and Death Race 2000, with a dash of the cast of Top Gear, racing through a nuclear minefield in space-North-Korea".

Admittedly Trava has fur, being some sort of scruffy rabbit thing, but he barely even gets a bit part.

No. 35194 ID: bf070d

I don't think that commenting on grammar, spelling, punctuation, and the like is some kind of troll. It is a valid critique, because doing these things properly makes your quest easier to read.

Not doing them makes it look as though you don't care. If you can't do it yourself, you could look for a proofreader. There are people around here who will provide such services if asked nicely.
No. 35195 ID: 1f2692


well i can understand that, but i don't think that a minor misspelling in one or two words requires such criticism

Yeah, your English isn't that great. It's not a huge deal, especially comparatively, but improving it would improve your quests.

>... world of grammar nazis

i do not recall everyone being perfect, i also do not see every quest being perfect.

I have not noticed Lucid or weaver being perfect.

And i have not seen anyone hating their quests due to grammatical issues.

Lest i forget, romanticar had a girl that had z's in front of most of her words.

Humor me guys, i have no excuse for not being perfect.
No. 35201 ID: e0c719

LonelyWorld does quests fine with writing just like indigo's, if not worse. Hell, some people might consider it endearing. Leave her alone.
No. 35202 ID: cf244d

Nobody is perfect. That doesn't mean you shouldn't strive for perfection.

It's not a serious issue. Nonetheless, it's something that could be improved, and thus it was pointed out. That is not a bad thing. It is not being mean, or whatever you might think. To "Leaver her alone" would be to allow her to stew in her own imperfection. Why would anyone do that, when pointing out the flaw such that she may erase it is such a trivial thing to do? There is no reason not to extend advice, besides with the intent to create a hugbox environment where everything sucks and nobody ever improves. Few of us here see that as desirable.

Getting all mad about advice and implicitly refusing to make any attempt to improve, however, is a pretty serious problem. It will lead, at best, to stagnation.
No. 35203 ID: a41aaf

Do you happen to use Firefox? The built-in spell checker should highlight some simple things like lack of capitalisation at the start of sentences, or egregious spelling mistakes. Chrome has a spell checker too (not sure if it's enabled by default).

nothing against you.

>allow her to stew in her own imperfection. Why would anyone do that

i like being imperfect, it's like... i dunno, my personality is being expressed by one too many letters or putting the wrong symbol in.
My bad spelling is like my identity and the way i tell my stories... I'm sorry if i sound stupid, but i feel like if i attempt to make every word perfect in grammatical context i'll forget the point of story i'm making.

but whatever, i'll try better in future if you seriously don't like it that much.
No. 35294 ID: 3358a2

There's a difference between pointing out actual flaws and pointing out stupid shit. There is nothing wrong with not capitalizing your i's, especially if it's a stylistic choice. Did you stand behind Da Vinci and point out that he was doing it wrong? Plus, this comment feels a little mean considering the complaints seem to be solely about indigo and not any of our other perfectly fine quest authors with less than exceptional grammar or spelling.

I don't mean to be rude or anything, but, isn't just going 'lolboredQuestOver' kind of a big no no or something?

You left, then came back asking if you could come back, people said yes, and then you make a quest, you kinda just let it go for a bit, then decide to cut the whole thing?

I'm not trying to sound nasty or anything by any means, but if you're going to put quests up on here the last thing you should probably do is just stop the thing with a sudden game over out of boredom. It makes you look kinda bad as a quest author, and it's obvious that you're not necessarily a BAD quest author at all. You kinda just need to stop getting in trouble with other authors and pulling stuff like this.

tl;dr I know making a good quest and stuff can be hard, and keeping interest in it is harder. You need to make sure that if you start something, especially here on Quest, you need to see it through to the end. And that's pretty much my piece. Again, I'm not trying to be mean or troll you or anything, I'm just stating my opinion as civilly (Is that even a word? owo; ) as possible.
