I'm considering on making a game with RMVX and need advice on making/writing the script for it before I go off and make it.
Any you can give me?
Note: If there's any software packages you use to help plan scripts or stories for your games, let me know what they're called.

For planning stories? I just use Microsoft Word. You can import pictures and all that.

And stories are from your own imagination. ^^ If you need advice on organization, try reading up some writing tutorials in the "Tutorials" subforum. Or anywhere, really. tongue.gif

I am all about coming up with ideas and I know if I write the story for you then none of the people will really respect you unless I was a worker of yours. But I am allowed to give good advice. I been writing stories none stop (Where some times I wish I could.) if your having a hard time coming up with a story idea just relax cause I learn those who try hard fail to write a good story. Let your mind lose and start with the basic of things. What is your story going to be about? Also you can read some books, watch some videos, also play some games to help unlock your imagination. That's what I do in these times. You would be surprise how easy making stories are when you don't push it and come up with a idea you like. Make how it goes and what everyone do in your story. If you want any help in writing your story though I am always open bored waiting for a job to do. Even though I have tons of jobs on my hand I am still bored and I would help as much as I can. Here is a good thing to ask yourself.

What am I? (I would love to hear your answer.)

Remember that a story is your world to rule over. If you can't make a story though how would you make a game at all? Since there both alike. The skills we have are used to create our own world and what will your world be like? Do you even have a world in mind or is it a void waiting for a big bang to happen? (Just so everyone know I am not a believer in the Big Bang theory.) Cause if you are waiting for that to happen it will never come so you better get writing on a story idea. But I would be if any time be willing to help you get started and you can ask yourself all these question as I learn that it helps in making a story.
Spoiler:
What is your story about?
Is there a purpose in it?
What are my character's name?
What type of story will be it?
Were is my pickle?
Who is the main person in it?
Were does it begin and end?
What would the characters look like?
What will the main character do?
Who ate my pickle?
What will happen to the Main Character?
Why does RPG_Lover ask about Pickles?


I hope that this was helpful and that you have a fun time on your story. Remember that your imagination is as big as you want it. There is no limit to your imagination so there is no limit to your story idea. Just stop putting a cage on yourself and you will see things more clearly and soon make stories like there is no tomorrow. Cause there will be no tomorrow when I make you part of my collection!

Thanks a lot for the advice, rpg_Lover. You are right about the "imagination is the limit" aspect of game development.
