Joe's Quest/FF XIV Stream, 9/24/2019

Ended up streaming FF XIV after about an hour into playing Quest. Why?:

I figured out how to create a room, but when I went to that particular menu, HOOOOOOO BOY did I get overwhelmed! I didn't even know where to begin. After trying - and failing - to make it so you can pick up a torch in a dark room (because duh, it's a dark room, which I didn't realize until later) I cried Uncle! and switched to this game. So, not really sure how to proceed now. I have no game design background, and neither do my viewers (a few even said so in chat. Sorry about that guys lol). And I'm not a fan of torture, so this makes it borderline unplayable/unstreamable. So this, despite the fact that Quest is touted as a beginner-friendly program (you're making a text-based game, not FF XIV), this pretty much puts me at an impasse, since I don't like to play games that I can't stream. But at the same time I don't want to give this game up either, despite its - try not to laugh - steep learning curve, because:

I wanna make this work. I guess I'll have to figure something out in the meantime.

But as for the FF XIV session it was mostly mat gathering, with a bit of crafting thrown in (GC turn-ins and Custom Deliveries). And probably as a by-product of me quitting Quest, as well as an FC member deleting the FC teleport buff I had up - because I don't want to have to pay 999 gil or use an Aetheryte Ticket to fund all the traveling around I was going to be doing gathering mats - and replacing it with the food buff, which is totally useless to me since I had to get a bunch of low-level mats as well, and not worth using food for (she probably didn't know this, but still,....) I ended up getting pissed off after I botched an important craft, alienating my viewers, and causing them all to leave (I think this is what happened, because it got pretty quiet for a long while afterwards). So, this was definitely a day I should've just stayed in bed. -_-

And here's all the records I played today (played during both games):

Pink Floyd - The Endless River
The Black Guard (Scottish marching band & bagpipe music)
Queen - Flash Gordon Soundtrack
Frank Zappa - Ship Arriving Too Late to Save a Drowning Witch
The Residents - Meet The Residents

Okay, time to call it a night <Take care.> everyone, and have yourselves a good night/day. And I hope things'll be better tomorrow. ;)>
