Before Midnight Stream
Permission to stream CYS Games on Twitch on 8/20/2021 6:38:22 PM
I have a question. Are we allowed to stream CYS games on twitch?
Once a week, I was thinking about hosting a CYS stream where I stream not just my own games, but games from the talented writers on this site and attribute them for their work.
If this is allowed, great, I'm just curious to know if I could just attribute the site and the writer to stream them?

I am really sorry, I don't know what the heck I was thinking when I wrote that post.
I was a completely different person at the time going through a really, tough mental health issue. I got abruptly broken up with, I stopped all MyVacation's development, I was in a really dark place in my life.
I'm happy to say that after months of therapy and support, I'm in a much better place in my life and if there's any opportunity at all for me to rejoin, I'd love to redeem myself and continue being a respectful member of the CYS community.

I honestly don't even remember making that comment, and I feel stupid that I even made it.
It's been a while since then, and I'm definitely not the same person I used to be.
I've gone through some very transformative experiences in my life and I am definitely more positive than I used to be.
I basically suffered severe mental health problems after a traumatic breakup, and I needed a lot of therapy, I almost wasn't a part of this world anymore. It wasn't a good time for me at all and I am truly sorry that I posted so bluntly like that. That doesn't even feel like me.
If there's any opportunity that I could make amends and re-join, I'd love the opportunity to come back and redeem myself.

MyVacation on 12/30/2020 11:09:10 AM
Those were original "DLC" content that I had planned out, but that was also around the same time that I switched to developing the actual game. So instead of keeping the game off the site, I ultimately just published and brought back the game.
The Redstone Coontry Club was going to be a place where players could play a golf mini game. Spending on how well they did, they'd get access to an exclusive VIP Lounge where they'd meet a new character that would send them on a fetch quest back into the jungle.
The Island Cliffs is a part of that fetch quest, If your body skill was high enough, you'd reach the top of the cliffs and you'd discover a cafe and inn. The cafe serves peak burgers and the inn has a spa and hotel that lets you refill your needs. There's also a secret elevator that gets unlocked that lets you go back to the cliffside inn instead of climbing the mountain. The cliffside inn and cafe has a character that gives you a code to the Mysterious Mines, but only after you give that character a message from the Country Club character.
The Mysterious Mines are locked by a coded padlock. Once using the code, you can get inside. The entrance to the mine has a gift shop. When you enter the gift shop, an employee greets you and rewards you for finding the secret mines. He explains that the mines are a series of floors where players fight monsters and gain experience points. The points can be redeemed at the gift shop for new weapons, armor, items, and buffs. If you reach the bottom of the mines and defeat the Dark Mine Lord, you'd get a Mine Lord Plushie that when interacted with, says one of his boss battle quotes and then randomly increases one of your skills by 1, once a day. It's a great way to max out your skills.
Unfortunately, none of these features made it to the final story build after I switched to the My Vacation video game. But there's hope! These might be locations in the full game. Thanks for understanding!
Alias the Variable Names on 6/2/2019 6:42:51 PM
I was wondering if we could have a new parameter on the variables screen called "Alias".
If a variable name for example is "RELJAKE" = "Relationship with Jake".
Instead of putting Relationship with Jake: %%RELJAKE%% on every page, why not just allow me to fill in an "alias" for it that replaces the variable's name with the alias inside the story?
Set "Display on Page" = true and viola!
There you have it. Variable aliases.
Stories with LGBT characters? on 6/2/2019 6:23:32 PM
My story, Before Midnight, allows you to romance a male character. The game does not assume the reader's gender. I wrote it that way so that Nick could either be a friend in the end OR a potential romance option. Feel free to check it out!
I am also in the process of writing two LGBT... stories. I think having more representation/diversity on the site is great!

What's your favourite movie / tv show and why? on 3/13/2019 6:38:44 PM
1. 50 First Dates - I just loved the premise and how it also serves as a minor educational movie on the psychology of the brain.
2. Clue - For some reason, I just always loved this movie.
3. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 1/2 - these movies remind me of my family structure a lot. I always compare my family to these movies.
1. Lost - I was always a huge fan growing up
2. Desperate Housewives - I just loved the drama of the show and the characters. I feel like the themes were also ahead of their time.
3. Ugly Betty - this is my guilty pleasure show. I love America Ferrera. She's an amazing actress and I love how genuine she is on the show.
4. Superstore - This show gives me so many good laughs. I love it. I think I shop at Walmart more because of this show.
5. Parks and Rec/The Office - these two are classics to me. Absolutely love 'em.
