We love watching you work. If you have a piece that's incomplete that you simply need advice on, or if you want to take us on a step by step journey through your process for your new dragon, all WIPs are welcome here.

That's because the first one was really meant to show off the features of the engine and serve as a base for fan-made campaigns. Which it did a good job of, but it lacked things like the ability to quicksave mid-mission. And that resulted in a lot of frustration when you had gone through the majority of a mission only to have a couple mishaps result in you having to replay the entire thing. Thankfully, that was remedied in the Director's Cut and Dragonfall. Dragonfall also added in side missions to an official campaign, which was something that the first one lacked. It still made for a good game though.
Work was crap tonight. I had some guy go off on me because I had the gall to ask him if he needed help after he doubled back and began walking in my direction just as I parked and got out of my car. He got about 3 inches from my face and was screaming at me, so I was getting sprayed with his spit the whole time, and he started jabbing me in the chest with his finger repeatedly. He's lucky I have a very good handle on my anger or else I probably would have played a game of "squash" with his head on the side of the car. By procedure, I would have been wholly justified in using pepper spray on him the minute he started jabbing his finger into my chest, especially given the preceding hostility he showed by getting in my face the way he did.
But I still don't carry spray, because the police department still hasn't "certified" me. Which is just them spraying me then making me "fight" 4 officers and adequately point a can of spray of my own at a particular person. And the whole thing is recorded. And everyone there laughs at you because they all know how much out spray hurts. It's so bad that going through an area where it was sprayed half an hour later can still leave you coughing and tearing up. It's been known to get sucked into ventilation systems and clear whole bars when it's sprayed within 50 feet upwind. The bars really hate when street fights break out nearby and the cops get called, because if the fight doesn't break up when the cops start yelling, the spray comes out and the bar's night is pretty much over.
That guy got arrested, though. A couple officers heard his yelling from a block away and came to check it out, and he went off on them, too. It was apparently the second or third time they had dealt with him in 10 minutes, so he was out of chances to go home and stop being a drunken broccoli downtown. And it turned out he had active warrants both through our department and through another county in our state. Ours was just a failure to appear, but I don't know what the other one was.
Expect the first few hours to be a bit...surreal. I had no idea what I had been missing until suddenly I could see the individual leaves on the trees in the parking lot outside. I couldn't stop boggling at them. It was like someone had suddenly flipped the HD switch on my world, lol.
