Story

According to one theory, Earth's moon was formed by collision with another planetoid early in our solar system's history. This theoretical planetoid is known as Theia, the mother of Selene (the moon) in early Hellene mythology.

The theory states that Theia would have been completely consumed in the collision, its mass integrated with Earth's.

Why, then, in the outer reaches of the Oort cloud, where astronomers expect to find only comets and isolated bodies of ice, has a planet been found whose composition exactly compliments planet Theia of the Giant Impact theory? Almost a light-year away from the Sun, it hangs on by a mere slip of a gravitational tether, and would certainly have been long lost to the system were its orbit not almost immeasurably slow.

Wherever it came from, it was the last beacon of hope for White Horse Enterprises, a sluggish corporation whose dewy-eyed business ethics made it uncompetitive in the corrupt, overpopulated world of 2072. They established a mining facility on Planet Theia as a showcase for their progressive, philanthropic business practices. In the words of White Horse's CEO: "This venture will go forward, and it will establish a precedent that only an act of God can supersede."

The venture seemed doomed for bankruptcy until a survey drone uncovered what appeared to be an alien artifact, deep under the planet's surface. Desperately needing to capitalize on the discovery, the admins have planned an investor's gala in the P. Lowell Executive Chalet, a small luxury resort with a stunning view of the mining installation, where the artifact will be unveiled to the public.

... And now, for some reason, you've just woken up on the floor of your sleep quarters. You have no recollection of the last week, and your co-workers have turned into monsters. Your only guidance is a droning automated announcement system and the clues your colleagues left behind before losing their minds.

Welcome to Planet Theia. It's always dark out.

My god we're going back for this one

Two days ago I finally started using Rogaine, even though I'm about 15 years too late for it to make a difference!

Well we all know how it goes, I still want to shake the usual farts out of the bedsheets and say that sOmEdAy ThIs PrOjEcT wIlL bE dOnE i PrOmIsE but it looks to be something that I'll have to be toying with on and off for years and maybe finish it when I'm 50. Because I was visited by that terrible spectre of Another Idea For A Game That Seems Like It Will Be Less Work And More Likely To Pay Off Than The Current Idea (AIFAGTSLIWBLWAMLTPOTTCI). I've actually been working on the AIFAGTSLIWBLWAMLTPOTTCI for the last year. I don't want to be an idiot who strings along projects for years and then never finishes anything because of yet another AIFAGTSLIWBLWAMLTPOTTCI, with the old tune of i'Ll GeT bAcK tO tHiS pRoJeCt OnCe ThE nEw OtHeR iDeA iS dOnE. Every time I do this I lose more and more confidence in myself. But the AIFAGTSLIWBLWAMLTPOTTCI can be very seductive.

The latest AIFAGTSLIWBLWAMLTPOTTCI is a furry-themed building management sim made in Game Maker, and the building that you're managing is a public bathroom. You place facilities like toilets and sinks and make money by selling different types of septic effluent. It leans heavily on the vulgar subject matter, because furries like that sort of thing. But it's not really an RPG so I don't want to make a project page here. Does anyone know of another website where I might make a project page for that sort of game?

Foxed. Fixed.
Hey, I've been lurking here for quite some time now, but this one actually caused me to register.

Compliments all around on the system and the game itself; the system is both unique and fluid while the game is enjoyable, compelling, and a very good way to get lost from reality, so kudos there.

Now the problem, I downloaded the new release (v1_2_3_2_1) and installed it clean (in it's own folder from the previous install). I had wanted to take advantage of the update to start over and all that, so I started playing through the intro and I encountered a bug right after exiting the bulkhead.

Script 'Z-Game_Room' line 368: Type Error occurred
no implicit conversion from nil to integer


Now, I have no idea what this means (I'm no programmer and I don't have RPG Maker to play with, so...), but I do know that I tried again (from a new game) and encountered it again... twice.
Same message.

Oh yes, in the old version that I had been playing (v1_2_2_1) the laser gun thing (Apollo H4) had free upgrades on everything.
I have no idea how that happened or if it's been fixed yet.

Just thought you might want to know.

Thank you for reporting this. The new version up now should be fixed.
Hey again. The update fixed the problem in the prologue, but I encountered something else:
NoMethodError occurred while running script.
undefined method 'person' for #<Game_personnel:0x4458488>


I got this when I changed rooms with just my main character.
This profile I had carried over from the previous install (I had bypassed the previous issue), so I granted the possibility of that being an issue (I highly doubted it though) and created a new character.
...And encountered another error in the same circumstances (at the same point).
NoMethodError occurred while running script.
undefined method 'person' for #<Game_personnel:0x4922b18>


Thinking/hoping it was random, I reloaded and tried again (multiple times) and got these:
NoMethodError occurred while running script.
undefined method 'person' for #<Game_personnel:0x4441550>

NoMethodError occurred while running script.
undefined method 'person' for #<Game_personnel:0x4441b80>

NoMethodError occurred while running script.
undefined method 'person' for #<Game_personnel:0x488fa98>


Playing around a bit, this only seems to occur with my PC (meaning I can move Evan around alone just fine).
Of course, I would just so happened to have build my PC as the Melee/Low-Level Psionic Fighter (No points in mental and no technical stats ) and Evan as the 'I've got a Gun!' Computer-guy (with no hack skill...)...
It's still entirely playable though, it just means that both of them will be Sedative junkies (The obtaining of which adds a whole new layer of fun to the game, I just don't know if you meant that to be there like that...).

ARGH. Well I can see what the problem is just from the error message, it's supposed to be Game_Personnel (case-sensitive) but it's in a script so it's hard to track down. Can you send me your latest save file?
Sure, but one catch...
...How?

Please forgive my newbism, believe it or not I haven't done this before (bit of an internet recluse anyway...).
(Kind of embarassing, honestly)


---

Err, hold on. If the problem was case-sensitivity...
...
*Head-Desk* (x100)

Sorry, I just forced the error again and noticed that they were all 'Game_Personnel'. At that I checked my note and realized that I missed that (I had writ 'Game_Personnel' but only typed 'Game_personnel'.
...My bad.
I guess that's double the reason you'll be needing the save file.

Upload the save file to your locker (everyone with an account gets one) and send me a note with the link. :) The saves are called SaveX.rxdata

... Oh, well, actually I managed to find the problem on my own. :X Now I just have to RE-UPLOAD YET ANOTHER VERSION.

But here, just download the CommonEvents.rxdata file: http://rpgmaker.net/media/content/users/546/locker/CommonEvents.rxdata and replace the one in the /Data game folder.
Ah, okay.
That seemed to solve the problem. My PC moves around alone just fine now.

Thanks for letting me know about the Locker, but I assume you won't be needing the save file now?

Also, the Wrench is your friend. (Saves bullets)
Found another error.

Script 'Z - Zap_Data (Monsters 1)' line 1561 : NoMethodError occurred
undefined method '<' for nil:NilClass

I got this when I repaired a hacked (slug) turret and then selected it.
Repeating the action gave the same error message.

---

Edit:

Found another one:
Script 'Z - Task_Executor 1' line:587: NoMethodError occured
undefined method 'event' for nil:NilClass

The previous error got me thinking and I decided to test something else.
I got this error when trying to deploy a packed slug turret.

What the hell... Have you not been shooting up your Medical Hypos?! :O
This game is a thing of great and terrible beauty. I would pay money for it.

What can I do to help this thing to continue to be made?
