I have thought of starting with the mapping, and start scripting later on. The cs will be built around 4 parts of the mansion. The parts will be: the main building, west wing, east wing and the cellar.
So far, the main building is done. The west wing has some small things left to go, but it is sort of complete. Then we have the east wing which I just started on recently. When i'm done with the east wing, then I will mapp the cellar.
Once i'm done mapping the 4 parts I will start scripting, there will be more mapping to do later, but that will be done when the time comes for it.
I have learned my mistakes from the Silent Hallways series, and this time I will go with a deeper story, so some of the notes will have a meaning behind them (so I recommend that you read ALL the notes). Puzzles will also be included in this, but since i'm sort of bad at puzzles they may be somewhat simple but I will do what i can.
This concludes the first dev diary, wish me luck! :D
