DreamKit4.0/Stuck/Scenes/ Adv. Beginner problem

Postby adambein » Dec 12, 2015 5:50 pm

Here's where I'm at now-I've found this new problem. I've come up with all sorts of scenes, assigned characters to roles/positions, come up with the storyforming, etc. Now I'm at the scene creator and I have...26 scenes I've made (numbered 1-26).

Scenes 27-54 I didn't create-they were automatically generated.

1. When were they generated and what caused them to be generated?
2. Should I remove the scenes I created, one at a time, and transplant the data from there into what I think is the correct scene between 27 and 54?
3. Should I not removed the scenes I created, but merely copy the data over from 1-26 into 27-54 where I think it belongs?
4. Is this the whole concept? Fill the automatically generated scenes with the data which supports them.
5. Should I think less of these as scenes and more in terms of them being 'events'? I think so.

I thought about not posting this but seeing how it illustrates my development and a situation that I am encountering, there might be some value to having this issue recognized.

Thx. ~Adam.

If you started the program using a template (which is my guess), the template already has the generic scenes as part of it. That's kind of what makes a template different from a new file.

I recommend looking through the scenes and delete what you don't want. Rearrange the rest into the order you wish them to be.

Hm. Ah, so that's where the scene list came from. Ah.

So what I need to do now is figure out which of my scenes needs to go where (in the automatically generated list)-to fulfill the storytelling needs? I can do it that way, right? Then from there, that'd tell me what I'm missing needs-wise right?

Yes. You can drag the scenes around to reorder them while in the scene list view.
