If it's actually a tree, JSON or YAML would work fine. Realistically dialogue trees are graphs though so you'll probably need to research graph storage formats

It's a directed graph format, technically so 1 -> 2 -> 3 or 4, and so on. Each node has a well-defined output of one or more nodes. I can do it just fine in my spreadsheet and convert over, but if I want to add say a node between 1 and 2 all the numbering looks crazy, even it will function fine in the end.

Yeah you definitely want to ditch JSON then. Look up some graph formats or roll your own. Most are based on JSON or XML anyway so they should be pretty straightforward. & it might help to use more semantic IDs instead of indexes so that you don't need to renumber each time you make a change

It is a strange place. You must never go there.

Orlando was a blast! The Rip Ride Rockit is one of the best rollercoasters I've ever been on. We went on it three times. The Hulk was awesome like I remembered--we went on that one twice (first ride we went on, and second-to-last; we went on the Rip Ride Rockit one more time after, haha). The Harry Potter sections were amazing! I finally got the tie I've been wanting for over a year now. (Gryffindor reppin').

 

When I posing for a picture in front of Poseidon's Fury a cute girl said I was looking good which was so nice :). IT'S THE BEARD.

 

Was so nice to see my grandparents (father's side) again. Last time I saw them I was in the 4th grade. Been a very long time. They live in Lake Placid, about two and a half hours south of Orlando.

 

Was 15 years since I was last in Florida. Now I'll be going again in March. It's amazing how much things have improved in just the span of a year. We were supposed to go in December but that didn't pan out between our jobs, but better late than never :). We're so gonna go again, haha.

 

Also I think these two are really great pictures:

I love my brother for putting up with me, lol. I so wanted to have the train in the pictures. The Rip Ride Rockit picture (second one) was hard to get...

 

If I make a Tinder again I'm gonna use that first one...

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Doing this is making a mess. Change the system so we can't do this.

You changed the system so I can't do this any more. Please do this for me.

I've been working on "powers". They're like abilities / special attacks. I have 19 planned for the demo (5 for each class + 4 defensive ones). Moving on you'll unlock a new power roughly every 10 levels, capping at level 50.

Some of my favorites include riposte for melee (blocks 50%-75% of melee damage, countering with 50%-150% damage in return) and Hawk Dive (any enemies in path of arrow/projectile get hit). Power cooldowns scale with your accuracy stat, while their potency scales with your damage stat.

 

Some skills will also have powers. For example, there will be one for mining that uses dynamite to instantly mine a rock. Those will probably be reserved for after the demo though.
