On a single day?!?
Yes I do that sometimes, yaknow. You've gotten used to me not doing it because I usually don't, but then again I usually am blogging close to the time I'm getting ready for bed. Or otherwise, am preoccupied with something else.
Today I actually have nothing but free time.
Which means nothing but time to do whatever.
I literally have almost nothing else to do.
That's one of the reasons why I made the blog post today--I knew today was a perfect day to get work done on it.
But therein enters the title.
I don't have anything else to do today.
But I do need a break, even if said break means no more work gets done on it today.
I made my blog post hours ago. Something like 3, 4 hours ago, somewhere in that range or so.
...In spite of that.
I've only managed to catalog (partially catalog, mind you; there's more cataloging which needs to be done) Tribes, Civilization Advances, Great Wonders, Small Wonders, and Buildings for vanilla civ 3 conquests plus any linked game concepts (or game concepts I know I want to create)--this is the bare bones minimum entries.
I'm not recording the details. Just the bare essentials. Absolute basic stuff. And I'm not using the editor yet or the notepad yet (mostly); this is just what I am grabbing from the game itself which needs to be recorded.
Yet I still have Governments, Units, Worker Actions, Terrain, Resources, and the rest of Game Concepts not already covered in the list I've got.
And yet hours in.
I'm already exhausted from the effort.
But this is what I needed to do.
Once I've got a master list up and running.
Then all I need to do.
Is then catalog the specifics--which with the formatting I have, is easy enough.
It sounds daunting, but it's not.
It's just...time-consuming to get the groundwork in.
But once the groundwork is in, it'll flow ridiculously fast.
You probably know that sort of concept. There's usually at least something in your life that works that way. Where it's time-consuming, difficult, hard, to get the base work done, but once you have the foundation, it flows effortlessly.
Same principle here.
I just need a nap or something to take a break and come back later to it.
