  1. From year 1 to year 2 there is no dropout and end of year 2 is probably even unsure till year 3 is out. After all there still such thing as summer class, Parent, Regent or Legate decision that can overrule exam results.
  2. And here I hoped you might give some hint as year 2 is still so far away.
  3. 1) Although we probably see it in year 2 but playing trough Chinese Parents make me wonder how extrem is the pressure the parents build up for their children to get good grades? 2) Are some hits with a stick still an accepted punishment for children that not behave as expected (i.e. because their grades are to bad)?
  4. Although for the game "Chinese Parents" the game Plus where you play the child of your previous Character is great (currently playing my 4th generation there) , I suspect for Academagia it is an unreasonable idea. First of all Academagia will be split over probably 5 games what means year 5 need to make a export file that then can be load with year 1 what is for sure no easy thing. Then is the question if in 20 year + we still can play year 1 on the device we then will play year 5. Lastly there is probably the issue of the way to long play time to get one char from year 1 all the way to year 5 and then start the same thing over for the second generation.
  5. Given how long it takes to develop year 2 it might be a good idea for a later year to change the timeframe from daily X slots to weekly X slots, maybe even doing 2 years together into one game. I also think it might be a good move to reduce the number of timeslots you have per year if we look at the full planed 5 years. If we look at year 1 on its own the length is good, some might even think it is to short! But if we add year 2 as well that supposed to have 34-50% more timeslot it suddenly becomes a very slow game to play if you really want to go from day 1 with a new student.
  6. I played 中国式家长/Chinese Parents for a few hours now and its really interesting, kind of remind me on Kudos 2 but it can handle way larger screen resolution. It is also currently at a -33% sale at Steam. https://store.steampowered.com/app/736190/__Chinese_Parents/
  7. So far I don't get warm with the hunting for food of this game.
  8. think there 1 or 2 more exotic familiar where because the adventure start at the intro it can't be done when you get the familiar later in the game. (To lazy to look in the mod tools right now who they are)
  9. you are aware that you can get a exotic familiar ingame once you reach zoology 11?
  10. Then Y5 will for sure break this record if this count, as Y5 was also more or less announced with the release of year 1 and the info that it is supposed to be 5 years.
  11. It might be just me, but after over 2 years of silence there could be something about Academagia again over at your twitter. (hopeful something about year 2 or a fix to year 1 )
  12. for BMT you can either ask the Legate to resend you a download link or try http://download.bmtmicro.com/ if you still have your e-mail If all you still have is the e-mail address where you bought your game you still can ask the Legate for help, some years back the people at Positech Games managed to help me with just the knowledge of the e-mail where I bought a game from them. But sure if you no longer owner of the e-mail you once used to buy the game and also no longer have a own backup of the game then your out of luck but if you i.e. no longer own the e-mail address you used at steam you earlier or later will lose all games you have there (at latest when you use a different PC).
  13. There where other shops in the past Impulse … after take over by Gamestop they stopped to sell Academagia Beamdog but they no longer sell products beside their own GamersGate BCS removed the game from there once they managed the Steam release (probably because the store is by today mostly only a key reseller for Steam) There was also a Cloud Gaming Platform where you could buy or rent the game but that is also closed by now According to the Legate they also tried to get on GOG but got refused From my understanding there only 3 shop beside Steam, GOG and BMT that could be interesting for BCS - The Ubisoft Store: but I'm not sure they should try this store out before their next release as this store also try to start a game abo program and might give away games like Academagia for free (yes that means BCS would get nothing at all from this for free sales) - Humble Bundle (Although most of the games they sell there are also just keys for Steam) - itchio indie game store that take everyone … I mean really everyone resulting even the best games get drowned there and its actual a lot worse then having a store like BMT on your own webpage. Despite all the hate Steam is the platform with the most potential customer and offer a lot of service for the developer and gamer, combined with BTM that sell a complete DRM free version every taste for a shop should be covered from a buyer perspective.
  14. 1) With the history focus of Aranaz is it one of the possible topics for the last year project to research why a pillar did fall out of favor and what it still can offer for a modern mage? 2) Although it is typical for Vernin to craft an object for the last year is it also accepted to put up an paper with research of a specific enchanting / artifice method , even if it is from pillar that no longer is in use? 3) Is the project for the last year chosen freely by the student or is the mentoring mage select it for the student? 4) Because Pheme are one of the important part in modern magic, where there last year projects that focus on a specific / or group of similar pheme in the past and if so in what college(s)?
  15. 2) Is it legal to research old but no longer practiced magic "pillars" as long they not belong to mastery or gate magic?
  16. 1) Is there a variant of Orthography that is based on geometry instead of letters?
  17. I think by limiting the affected sub skills to 3 a Revision of Skills for Skill + Subskill can work out. 1st of all the magic work only for Skills where the caster know at last 3 sub skills. (Needed to prevent exploits and bugs) Then there 2 Skill selector that each unlock 3 sub skill selector of the selected skill that only show known skills. Each Skill and Subskill can only selected once in one casting. Given the clear follow up of Skills and Subskills for both it should be clear enough what skills are switched with what other skill. Only if all 8 slot are set the turn can be progressed. What I'm not sure if the AI could handle such "complicate" spells.
  18. 1) Are there spells like Revision of Skills planed that affect the main skill including the sub skills? (I suspect the answer is no because its difficult to decide what sub skill will affect what sub skill of the recipient skill) 2) Are there official placed magical navigation beacon that can be targeted by divination magic of different schools to get the exact direction and maybe even distance to it? (Because overlapping magic can become problematic I suspect such magic is placed and refreshed by a office instead of every boat navigator who know a bit of magic place their own beacon at each harbor)
  19. If I remember right there was also the problem that only one background with negative points work per background category.
  20. The Legate told us already that most of the year 1 adventures have some kind of solution in year 2 even if the player didn't start the adventure or done it partial.
  21. I suspect if for a duration up to a few years its mostly Mercenary work, but for long term employment you probably either train them your self or direct recruit from magic or combat schools / instructors.
  22. @Rhialto as far I can see you can register also without a Social Media account but still $19.99 ahead payment when they not even post a screenshot about the game on their own webpage leave a very bad taste.
  23. https://reallivesworld.com/gamers/index.html Anyone already tried out this simulation and can tell something about it?
  24. If they find a fix for the save bug plaguing the steam release then I suspect they will push out a update even before year 2 release. But otherwise I wont set my hopes high that there will be any fixes before year 2 is released,
  25. 1) What is the most common way to get into contact with this traveling mercenary? 2) Are magical communications devices know that can connect to different other devices similar to our phones? 2b) How common and mobile are such devises?
