    Update 1: As you may have seen per Naval Message #191 from Naval High Command BCS, they are going to provide an in game reward to the winner of our essay contest, to be awarded on the launch of the game. The prize will be a unique crewman or woman, inspired by the subject of the winning essay.

    I PROPOSE A SUGGESTION. A SUGGESTY SUGGESTION THAT SUGGESTS SUGGESTIVELY. In Other words I propose something that could raise morale and hype again before release. New Interviews. It would only be a couple. One a month until release. But I figure throwing a couple new belles in the mix could breathe a little more life into the remaining fandom. They could be used as notes from the devs. “The writing team’s favorite and why” the next could be the art team’s favorite and why, etc.

    I wouldn't mind if I rescue some British port town and they name a ship HMS Insufferable, because they can't get themselves to name a ship after a German captain, but basically everyone knows what's up, including the Belle.

    It's part subjective and part meta Every npc has a dominant attribute on the mod tools, Cinzia is marked as having Intelligence as her preference, meaning she will try to raise that attribute if possible On the Charm exit it feels you are either trying to the seize the knowledge for yourself or change Cinzia to be nicer (if you look on a meta level how the characters might evolve) The Intelligence exit felt more natural, you let her open the statue and have her moment If i wanted a nice Avila girl there's Ana Flavia for that, i liked Cinzia for what she is. And on the the topic of npc rewards, i remembered Noemia gain confidence skill steps on her adventure

    I think it was cool that on Cinzia's adventure you and her gain a stat point as a reward. 1 charm if you want to try to make her nicer or 1 intelligence if you go for the true end

    Ah, I wasn't sure myself because of the information on steam stating FToS as the latest update and no mention of Summer's Blush even when searching online. I was currently searching the threads here for clarity on that, so thank you for the swift reply. I know I'll have fun, it might be a niche game but it's my kinda game, so thanks again!

    Attention all INPF commands. The following message is unclassified and marked for widest distribution. Publicly publish the following orders at gathering points within your command. From: Commander, 76th Strike Group, INPF Pacific Command To: All INPF Commands Subject: Armistice Day Essay Contest Situation: The Captain's Association, and the Admiralty Board of the Discord Server is pleased to announce that we will be holding an essay contest, to celebrate the imminent launch of the game, (whenever that might be!) and to commemorate the end of the Great War. The contest is open to all ranks, and begrudgingly, to all services, including our land locked cousins. Please see the following information for details. Respond to this thread, or contact the Admiralty Board on the very Unofficial Victory Belles Discord server if you have questions. Mission: In the spirit of the old saw "Lions Led By Donkeys", the subject of the essay shall be, The Worst General or Admiral of the 20th Century As an argumentative essay, your essay about your selected historical personage must be based primarily in facts and reason. Citations are not required. A certain amount of persuasive writing (arguing from emotion) and humor is encouraged, but should not encapsulate more than half of the essay. The board wishes for all participating personnel to have fun after all, but the goal is making a historical argument with these essays in addition to having fun. Some exceptions to the requirement of your essay subject being a flag officer will be entertained on a case by case basis, but should ideally be at the very least, the commander of a land formation no smaller than a regiment, one large warship, or the commander of a squadron or flotilla of smaller vessels. If you really need to expose the incompetence of such an individual, contact the contest organizer with the following information: Who you want to eviscerate in text, and why you feel they should be considered in the company of failed generals and admirals. Execution: The contestants shall write an argumentative essay of at least one typed page in English, size 12 font. The essays will be judged solely on content, not on grammar, but keeping things vaguely comprehensible is encouraged so as not to drive the judges to drink. Anything above ten pages is probably a touch excessive, but if you have the will, by all means. Essays may be submitted via paste bin link, or posted whole cloth in the contest thread on the Victory Belle's forum. These essays will then be judged by the Admiralty board via an internal process. Results will be announced via the Discord, and this thread. This will be accomplished as quickly as possible after the end of the submission period. Depending on the volume of submissions... it might take awhile, what with a war to fight against eldritch horrors and all that. To encourage enthusiastic participation, the Admiralty Board is offering the following prizes to the victor. The admiration of your peers, the smug satisfaction that you've lampooned an utterly incompetent git for the amusement of others, and of course for the over all winner, a prize, either a strategy game with appropriate amounts of naval combat, or a steam gift card of equivalent value . The exact value of the prize, and a possible prize for second place, will depend on the number of participants who successfully submit their entry, but will be no less than 20.00 USD. The winner will be messaged via PM on this forum, or by discord to arrange for final delivery of the prize. Administration: Due date: All entries must be submitted by the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, Reiwa 2/2773 AUC/2020 CE, in the Central Time Zone of the United States. Command and Signal: As before, please contact myself under the handle TwoHeavens on the forum, or via the (Unofficial!) VB discord here: https://discord.gg/8AqrYGq with the same call sign. Keep an eye out for a special further announcement regarding this contest later this week! May the most irate historian win! Respectfully, T. Heavens. Admiral, USMC, INPF Commanding

    I really like the game and am more than willing to believe it hasn't been abandoned but what would really help with that are regular updates. every month a sign of live that some work has been done. just a small beacon of hope that Y2 will at some point exist.

    Been reading through the old updates, and was wondering if we could maybe get say a European or Asian perspective on the first days of the Morganas and Belles in an update. There's a snippit of the European side in 139 where it goes over the American side of things, but a little more wouldn't hurt.

    I understand the importance of cordiality in customer service, but I feel I must voice the concerns of many on the discord, which I fear is the entire base of the few supporters you seem to have remaining at this point. The release is no longer something to be discussed with laughs and cheeky banter. That was amusing 2 years ago, when we were all thinking it was getting close. But Being told “It’s definitely close this time!” since 2016 has certainly soured the sentiment. I believe it would be less frustrating for the 20 or so people who still actively follow the development of this game if you would kindly stop using emotes and “haha” when replying to honest and rather concerned questions. It’s frankly alienating and at this point, borderline condescending and rude. I understand that your tongue is tied for us Legate, but at the very least, pass my unmitigated sentiments to the entire team so they may understand at least partially the frustration of 4 years of almost literally laughing at every attempt to gauge the time we must anxiously wait for a snippet of actual help.

    General announcement: All US football leagues have postponed their start well in April, so they get an extended deadline, if they need one (currently June 30th). Direct matches: Tenryuu 1-3 Takao INPF 1: Well, we kick off the matchday with Belfast -again- and maybe for almost the last time. She makes a perfect 12/12 score today and has only 12 points to gain at max. 4 more matches and she's done for this season. So her current 72 points can "only" be elevated to 84 tops. Conte however stays flawless as well and has still 16 fluffy matches to go. With AGS also losing no points on her way to the maybe top, the top 3 are uncatchable today it seems. But! The IJN is back in the fight! Chiyoda comes back out of drydock with a strong 7/9 performance. Just in time, so AGS can't shake her for good. She is however only 6 matches away from a complete run, so her title dreams from earlier are much thinner than when she left. The sisterly battle in Russia turns into Moskvas favour as she can score two wins in two matches, while her sister only saves 1/6 points and falls behind. For now or was it the decisive matchday for those two? Lady Hood loses her steam in the end and also only gets 1/6 points. Denying herself a symbolic last huzzah over Leni and now being a sitting duck getting immediately taken over by Verdun, who also sacks Leni. Luckily Tenryuu seems to be stuck in winter quarters. She is back in the fight, but graciously scores 0/6 points. Lucky for her, LMP does the same today. Lex, like the other US Belles remains in drydock due to the pandemic (see above), so now threat there. Algerié has a classic mixed back of 1/1/1 in three matches, but it's enough to at least even the score with Lex and overturning her with the better match ratio. Kongou and Kumano have Nadeshiko League Teams. They will join on the last weekend of March, so maybe first scores will be in in early April. This leaves Perth, with a mediocre 3/9 performance, getting her out of relegation, at least on paper. INPF 2: With Exeter done, INPF 2 starts with P-k who also starts the hunt for Exeter. Since she was busy, showing you around last week, she only played one match, but managed to win it. Canarias goes out as well, but with a win, giving her chances to promotion a final, desperate push. Especially since Scharnhorst fails to deliver the killing blow with only 2 points in two matches. In the 2nd division, the IJN Kami-maru rejoin the fight, some of them with only little left to fight. But Takao wins over INPF 1s Tenryuu. With her other match a draw however, her chances are pretty much theoretical, since she can only check Canarias. Kitakami would be next in list, but since her team plays in J3 league, she restarts to play only in a fortnight. Kaga already only fights for her honour, scoring 3/6 points and having also only two matches left. At least overtaking Kitakami. For now. Köln only scores one point. With only 5 matches in reserve, her chances for promotion are on paper only as well. Nürnberg doesn't fare any better, but has more matches left. Nagato and Dunkerque do the same and thus we enter the bottom of the table. And there Gneisenau suddenly shows signs of life! With 4/9 points she shows a performance getting her at least in front of Nevada for now. But Bearn beste her nonthelesswith a rare 6/6 matchday. Nagato, Dunkerque, Bearn and Gneisenau also have now entered their endgame with 5 matches or less left. At the very bottom, the losers duel sees two furious performances! Pola scores 6/9 points and Aoba 4/6. They're not done yet and Pola underscores it even by overtaking Nevada for now in a big leap!

    My hope is that it is just left to the player to decide for themselves what makes sense for the character to be able to do. Personally, I do take into account what I think the character's family would want when picking classes (along with other factors). The player has full choice, but that doesn't have to mean the character always has full choice. There are just too many different factors of potential backgrounds. For my Up From Destitution characters, I don't want them to have any influence or connections to ensure they get their wanted classes. But their parents also don't have the influence or connections to get in their way. If you're the Favorite Child then you could be smothered with concern and careful direction to your professors, or maybe you just begged and your parents let you have any classes you wanted. If you have Black Sheep then maybe the parents would never listen to your arguments, but you could also say they weren't paying attention or don't care enough to influence your classes. I know families are going to be more fleshed out and customizable in Y2, but it would be a lot of work to program in all the possibilities and also allow the player to pick the exact outcome and factors that lead to it. The same result is achieved by just letting the player pick freely in the first place, and imagine whatever process they want that led up to it. I would be disappointed if instead of all those different possibilities, all player characters just blanketly actually had a direct line of influence.

    Since we know main writing is done.. (barring continuous editing) And we know that Y2 has existed in a playable state for years, now. I am suspecting that most of the remaining work revolves around making sure all the massive tables of information reference each other properly. And possibly optimizing said tables since they are the heart of the game and it would be just a bit annoying to have to wait for all those obscene files to load. There's bound to be other things, but that would take the longest for a small team to accomplish. Especially a small team working on it as a hobby.

    Are there any PC backgrounds, in Y1 or Y2, that should be taken as confirmation that the PC hails from Pievre? EDIT: It's been mentioned before that faculty has been involved in breaking up Cliques and the like before, either at the behest of someone's parents or for their own purposes, but has the opposite ever happened before? Has the faculty ever played matchmaker for any of their students, either at the request of someone's parents or (New Gods knows why) for their own purposes?

    Wow, Mahan scheduled her. That was way back then..... I like the hint about Scharnhorst. Now I really want her and Lebi in one fleet together. Even though I won't hide my disappointment of Gerhard being used as comic relief. And given her sister is August... that makes for a missed opportunity. What's so demeaning about it? And if all of them feel that way -as Bellies reaction suggests-, why was the admiralty board so mean? Or crude? Or both? *plans to go rogue intensifiy* Can someone please explain to me Auld Reekie? I get the words, but who or what is it referring to? A mascot skunk? Mascot skunk confirmed?? And who killed it? Can we avenge it? And what's "barry" in the given context? On a different tune, I actually posses a written version about the events in question at Glencoe...... Talking about things familiar and starting with "Glen" (yes, I know what a Glen is, too), the last time I had Glenkinchie was ages ago, see, the story starts in 2001 and..... but I digress. Why Glenkinchie? Nearest distillery to Eddie? Only Scotch the author knew? Tell me about it. Ohohoho..... she speaks on behalf of the Town-class sisters..... so there's more than just two of them in the game? Just to anger Mr. Wells, I hope for Glasgow and Liverpool. "Of the names in their foul language from the uttered only in depths of Hell" - yeah, yeah, just say it already...... Ah yes, that cute thing at Invergordon. Worked like a charm and well "mutiny" is such a harsh word for it. Kiel was a mutiny. Invergordon was...cute. It was an ordinary strike. Cry me a river. Treating the officers with respect.....pfff.....mutiny. Also it was successful AND embarrassed the Royal Navy...so much they struck the Atlantic Fleet and renamed it. And nobody died. So what's not to like? What's warm sporran? And how does it taste? They say "och" in Scotland, too. Noice. Overall I'm a bit ambivalent about Eddie. On the one hand her positive attitude, especially towards alcohol. On the other hand I'd probably need to be tipsy the whole time to endure her skittish and apparently unreliable nature for longer terms.

    On a venom note, we do have a documented case of a large venomous serpent coiling itself round the turret workings of a warship of the Imperial Russian Navy, Second Pacific Squadron. Apparently the incident was resolved without too many people getting bit. It's a bit of a shame they got rid of the snake really, it probably vastly improved the combat potential of the ship.

    Okay here's a little more sophisticated look at the video: One Morgana we can identify for sure is "Fire" on the far right of the Morgana spectrum. 0:45 reveals the front Morgana to be Dismay, the far left to be Mistrust and reminds us of Avarice (next to Fire). 0:49 shows Mischief to be left to Dismay. 0:54 gives us Despair to be to the right of Dismay. Wait had I just forgotten how she looked? And 0:56 completes the set with the last missing one to be Venom. @NinjapacmanWhat do you make of the wooden plank of the Japanese kamimaru between Lampo and probably Jaguar? I will point out U-37 was a prime predator. And looks good. :3 At 0:17 point out every shadow and win the respect and admiration of this forum. Tfw you think "wait those were only 10 nations" and they hit you with a giant Swastika!! Lebi 🥰 The teaser hands us a prime opportunity to ship Verdun with any aircraft carrier. :3 I really like the new world map. Are the Morganas depicted the local "bosses" or "just" Morganas present at that location I wonder. Regions map looks interesting. So you have an area with paths, which you can scout and progress on. Reminds me of another game in which I liked that mechanic. The resources shown are (probably) Crew, Fuel (a barrel of oil, even though my fleet runs on the power of love! Yankii developers....), Ammo, then two construction resources maybe (Steel and stones?) and the last one I have no idea. Range? Radiation? We'll find out. There also seems to be time limit. And can you deploy your ships at will or will they be auto-assigned (in the first screen 4 ships in 2x2 fleets)? There are also harbours? Hm, what purpose might they have? :3 In the second screen, the one with pupper Pupper you can clearly see Hainan imho. And yes, who is #2? She seems to hold a slingshot? What is that gold V medal on the Kirov and Aoba screen? And is that Venezuela? The cloud seems to indicate "weather". I totally love the moving chibis. I want to look at them all the time!! Oh and I notice different "waves"..... Oh, I don't think we have been introduced to Calamity prior. I'll codename her Jane. For obvious reasons. And our old flame Corruption is there too. Short musical intermission, see below for why: Next up are Sedition, Sabotage and Mischief.....followed by more Sedition and Sabotage and then Vanity, Sin (hello there) and Sedition again.....Sedition all over the place.... Is there a Sedition song? And Queen Mary gets revealed. Which renews the debate of Team SSS (2 members) vs Team QM (everyone else it seems). See my previous post. Then more Morgana enter with Treason, Despair, Starvation, Confusion and Murder. Anyone counting and keeping track? Cause I ain't! And now we have to add Venom and Asphyxiation, who we already know of, courtesy of U-29. And slingshot girl is Boiky! Morganas still not finished with Injustice popping into view....briefly. Oh and Fire gets confirmed I guess (see above). Injustice - only blind on one eye...hah! And then we have a nice change of screen: Levelling up. NO needs (counterclockwise) Special Acknowledgement, Mardi Gras Mask, King Olivers Kreole ...radio, Zora Neale houston....books, Borbon Milk, CA Pacific International Expo.....blah, U.S. Protection Kit.....which consists of papers? .... Not condoms? Feel free to tell me something about it yankii. I'm always curious. Anyway there is an honour, accoutrement, music, library, recreation, good luck charm and home front support slot in that order. So speculate at will what it could be for YOUR favourite Walküre. there is also some interesting info about NOs weaponry and what gets affected by levelling up on the right side. The equipment peak screen is at 1:03, tmi to comment on all of it. the little stars in the top left corner look interesting. Wonder what they'll be for. Also I guess the "base screens" are revealed here. Please have a look for yourselves. But what might "commissary" be? 1:04 - wait a sec, you can outfit each battery? Whoa. And QM with a FuMG. Nice. :3 Maybe Ninja is right after all. I will still not budge. Where would be the fun in that? And i see the RM-1. 1:07 reveals everyones favourite money drain: The shop! ***mis the Mayan Goddess..... HMS Artemis? AND the star stuff resource is revealed: Shop currency. Yummy. And who might our cute shopkeeper be? And you can buy Amenities and...diplomacy?? Gosh, since I saved myself -and my money- for this game, I will be all over the place. And then there is yet another new Morgana, with Disease. Love the face mask. Some fighting to round out the video aaand done. thx Mahan. @Shirogane I found the following new ships confirmed, so you don't have to read all of this or watch the teaser in such detail: British DD Zulu, Italian DD Antoniotto Usidimare, German U-37, Italian U-Boot Archimede, British Passenger Liner Queen Mary and Soviet DD Boiky.

    Happy holidays to the team, Legate! Also, is it likely that we get even just an announcement about Big Progress before 2021 ends? I remember asking something similar back in 2018 around the same time and I just.... realized that Academagia had become some sort of a comfort game for me. So much so that I bought it on my second steam account just to support the devs again. I haven’t touched the game in 2019 but this break, I had enough time to play and it was nostalgic to play this game again. I’m not expecting Year 2 to come by next year, though I fervently hope for it, but hopefully within the next few years? I know others had been discouraged because of how slow the progress had been and the is it or isn’t it kind of answers, but I’m still anticipating because the summer vacation portion is so interesting and I think it will be fun to play.

    In the spirit of exploring the possibility... What coding languages and other prerequisites would be required to work on Y2? Recognizing the need for discretion regarding estimated programming man-hours remaining, is there any other community-accessible information about Y2 that may impact our assessment of the hiring market?
  30. 1 point
    Alright, questions it is then I suppose. Have the broken/near-useless systems from Y1, such as crafting and dueling, been significantly improved? Is there a large variety of recipes to discover for crafting so that all of our more abstract skills can be put to use for things other than skill challenges? Are there combat encounters other than duels with other students?
  31. 1 point
    A pleasant day to you, Legate. Coding is a time-intensive endeavor and requires a skill-set that is often expensive to outsource. Based on your previous remarks, it would appear that is the primary hurdle hindering the release of Year 2. Logically, this would be overcome through the allocation of more time - unlikely, given that updates related to Victory Belles are regularly posted on Facebook - or of more programmers. Given that the community surrounding Academagia appears to be rather invested in the release of the next installment... would Mr. Sawh and the remainder of the team be amenable to the addition of a contracted - or volunteer - programmer for dedicated work on Year 2? Presuming that the contractual expense was offset by crowdfunding or voluntary man-hours, of course. This would give the community an outlet through which they could directly affect the game's progress in a positive manner without BCS incurring significant expense or opportunity cost.

    In vouru's defense I myself only start reading the first book in a series of fantasy novels after the second book has been published. However that has left me trapped in a cliffhangar for a decade plenty of times in my life anyways, with things like wheel of time, game of thrones, patrick roftfuss, etc. IMO year1 is actually a complete story. Sort of like the star wars trilogy is a complete story and the 2nd and 3rd trilogies actually didn't do pretty much anything at all to enhance the original star wars trilogy's story. (I liked the clone wars and the reboot trilogy both just fine, they were just separate stories, that was supposed to be my point, but I realized my sentence might've made me seem like a hater). So in that sense y1 is like the original dragonlance trilogy or some such and y2 is all the other dragonlance trilogies that had separate plots entirely. (And again here, the twins trilogy is really awesome imo, even though the most famous is the original trilogy in DL, again separate stories.). In other words your point almost makes sense on the surface, except that a) stealing is bad and b) actually wait no your point doesn't even make sense.

    If you like something, then you ought to support it. The devs haven't abandoned Y2. They are just a fairly small team, working on a project that is quite enormous in scope. I think that the team have come upon a lot of unforseen obstacles. Over the years, despite the team's secrecy, bits and pieces have emerged which show that the team have been working toward Y2's completion. I would wager that Y2 is about 95% done at this time, with a few details still needed to be implemented, and lots of polish and bug fixing remaining.

    To be blunt there is never a good reason to steal entertainment as they all come down to greed! If your stupid and going public about stealing things then you only make it awkward for the people reading your imagined reasons and dangerous for your self! All your other talk in the forum became worthless the moment you started to talk about stealing the game! Even worse you devalued any good criticism you might have here about the game for other with your talk about stealing. Beside that in my experience when people try to justify why they stealing a digital good they are always going trough with the deed when someone try to counter their reason.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Realistically I don't see Y1 -> Y2 importing happening without one final patch on Y1's end. In the meantime things like Prodigy: Incantation and whatever other final bugs were found can, hopefully, be fixed.

    From a fast view in the wiki I would say Calming Air should be the most sure way. But coordination is also a skill used in adventures (i.e. I think to remember that the Legate side of the main adventure give it at a step) so that there sure better ways.

    Direct matches: none INPF 1: Conte and Leni circulate undisturbed on the top, while Moskva was able to gain some ground on LMP. Augusta, while championing the start of the season last year, now has three zeros in a row. Which naturally gets her nowhere and ruins her prospects for the catch-up calculation. That way Perth and Chiyoda are gonna put her even into the lower half of the table rather sooner than later. Pola btw managed a remarkable draw against the Croatian super power... but it still only got her one point. Wichita and Tenryuu also got valuable points in the fight against relegation, while the others drifted further into the danger zone. I.e. Saguenay lost the Canada Derby. And Kumano finally came back, but also picked up where she left with losing. INPF 2: Canarias crashed her winning streak spectacularly with two times zero. Most other teams gained points, but due to the big gap in points between Nürnberg and Kaga, nothing changed, except Nagato closing the IJN block by surpassing Axum. The exceptions can be found at the bottom. Nevada and Kitakami scored nothing and thus stay where they were. The most interesting action will probably be, if the IJN keep close formation in the end. No new teams ended their season.

    Technically speaking it's possible to get any NPC student to relationship 13+ if you're lucky enough to be able to abuse (and ruthlessly save/load cheese) the constellation that gives you +1 relationship max with a random student. There's no telling when, if ever, that constellation is active, though. Also technically you don't need relationship anything to tag everyone and the kitchen sink with Love, you can just hit them with the Emotion Pheme until the stars align, so to speak . That said you should be able to get any given student up to at least Affection level with just Etiquette...whatever level gives you +1 relationship max. It used to be 3 but that was changed at some point. Thankfully, but, eh...don't recall what rank it was moved to exactly...

    One more question to fight the good the fight against lazarus’s spotlight, and speaking of spotlights, we are aware already that belles are to a certain degree, media personalities. Do their home countries choose which belles become highlighted in the media, does the INPF have a say, or do belles tend to choose for themselves? I know it’s not difficult to make a capital ship like hood or Kongou famous, but what if a destroyer like Stewart wanted to be the face of the fighting fleet back home? Does she get a say or would she be undermined for a more powerful ship like Nevada to carry the banner?

Dr. Y, and a select few others, but we're the most die hard of the die hard, and even we're starting to suffer morale wise. I can only imagine how harrowing it is on the studio end. We can all hang alone or we can all hang together. Without the discord, which is very much us backers hanging together, and has itself been suffering a slow, but steady stream of casualties over the last two years... well. I'd still be in. But again I'm not representative. On some level I understand not wanting to disappoint everyone. I get it. I really do. I've bought in entirely, I have a personal stake in this game going off like the DM-2 launch. At the same time... I think it's okay to let us in a little bit. We've stuck with you for four years now. A peek under the hood, no matter how messy the engine compartment is presently, is not going to scare anyone away. But literally what you just said in the last post is enough if presented officially! "We're doing pre-alpha testing, here's what we can do in that build, blah blah, lame that progress gets wiped at the end of the week. Things are going better than not, everyone's really tired and putting a lot of heart into this but we're committed to see this though to the degree of quality or better than we promised." That's the type of thing people are asking for. It doesn't need to be grand gestures, sweeping promises or wide scale anything. Just... "Hey we're hereish."

    Didn't the planning for Y1 start even 1 or 2 decade before you had the money to work on it?

    You're missing the Expansion Pheme, I'm assuming.
