Pesterquest Modsuite

Post by Gio » Mon Nov 11, 2019 4:14 pm

Posting a discussion thread for Pesterquest Modsuite here
Original tweet and thread

Pesterquest Modsuite, a toolkit for writing and packaging your own #pesterquest routes, easy as pie! It doesn't break the original game and works with updates. In beta, but fully functional now.

Play fan routes!
The modsuite has features for packaging, distributing, and playing fan routes easily, cross-platform, without requiring a technical background.

Write fan routes!
The modsuite allows writers to quickly write routes using the existing sprites and styles of homestuck. Examples are provided so you can hit the ground running

Get creative!
For advanced users, the modsuite gives full access to renpy, so you can do just about anything you like!

Download, development, and documentation on github.

Really, just read the big readme and documentation on github.

I guess we don't have spoilertags yet? Well, when we do.

edit: I guess this is just a reserved second post now. Ah, memories.

you do now
I'm more easily reached at ceeps#9999 on Discord. I will respond to reports faster there because PHPBB's notification system is borked and doesn't email me when you report things.

Very interesting! I was thinking of making a Beforus friendsim, and since I was going to be using Ren'Py for it anyway this is a tempting offer.

please, please do

the core problem here is that ren'py insists on throwing absolutely everything into one giant global namespace. so. you can imagine the stress I am under.

I love the idea of this and hope people can put it to good use. Whoever was saying they may do a Beforus version of Pesterquest please do say if you do and post it if it ever happens I'd love to see something like that oml!

I decided to make a little audio player for pqms, but I went a little overboard... I wasted all night and the wee hours of the morning, but my loss is your gain.

Yes, it all works. Yes, it runs inside pesterquest. Yes, you can have some.
