Alright, it’s been over 2 weeks since I released v0.2 of this project, and I got back from my vacation this past Saturday. Tired and sore from a week-long camping trip in a little place called Patricks Point, off the coast of northern California. It’s a beautiful place where you just relax, or go adventuring as you trek to different amenities. There’s a few other places around that area, like Fern Canyon, which have become tradition to go to with my family.
Anyways, even though I am back, I have family from Idaho and Indiana visiting for the week, so my plans to get back into MM2’s development are going to have to wait a little longer. But, I was able to make a few changes before I left for vacation which will be available in v0.3, whenever that comes out. Those changes include no insta-death to spikes when in the invulnerable phase after getting hit, the Battons behaving more appropriately, and something else that I can’t remember now.
Fun Fact: Many people don’t know this (and I didn’t know until last year), but Patrick’s Point was one of the places where they filmed scenes for The Lost World: Jurassic Park, particularly the basecamp/cliff scenes and when the Gatherers watched the inGen Round-Up. The picture above showing “Wedding Rock” can be seen in The Lost World during the inGen fly-in. The area they are standing on is actually a parking lot they had to fill in with dirt.
Fern Canyon, as mentioned earlier, was also used for The Lost World, where Stark is killed by Compys.
