We all have a script, a script that we follow. And while this is a good thing, sometimes it also means that our script is completely off the rails. We are in a constant loop of taking whatever is given to us and executing it at the fastest possible speed, while trying to avoid the consequences. There are many ways to script, and sometimes I fall into the trap of believing that I should script.
I’ve been in this situation before. You can’t really script your life, but I’ve spent some time thinking about the script I follow and how I could change it. I decided to try a few things, and see what came out of it. I’m not going to lie: it’s a lot of work.
I know you don’t say much, so I won’t be boring you. I will say, I really do enjoy the work I do. It is always fun to do something, but if it turns out to not be fun, that’s fine too. I have been doing this for about a year now. Its fun to try things out, and I think I am getting better at it.
Script your life is a great way to do that. It’s kind of like an electronic diary you write everything down every day. You can write about anything you want, it’s pretty self-explanatory. The main difference between writing a script and writing a diary is that a script can also be edited, so if you want to go back and change something, you can. The only downside is that you are less likely to get something that you really want.
Scripts are just like a diary. It’s nice to be able to go back and edit things, but it’s not so great. Scripts are supposed to be the record and preserve memories. A common misconception is that a script is just a list of things you’re supposed to do tomorrow, but that is not accurate. A script is supposed to be a record of your day-to-day life.
Scripts are not just a list of things you should do tomorrow, they are a list of things you are supposed to do today. Most of the time, a script is just a list of things you should not do. When you are scripting, you are taking a list of things you should do, and changing them so that they no longer do anything.
When you are scripting you are taking a list of things you should not do and making it look like the things you do are the things you should do. You are creating a list that says, “do this,” but never actually does it in reality. This is done by changing the sentence so that it sounds as if it is saying, “do this, but not like this.
Scripting is a very powerful tool in game development because the game is now dependent on your script. Not only are you creating your own game, but you also have the ability to edit, change, and improve it over time. Scripting enables you to use the game to be smarter, faster, and more fun.
Scripting is so powerful that it sometimes leads a person to take a new script seriously and create something new. That’s why I wrote this article to show how you can do it in your own game.
And yet, we have a few other ways to improve your script.
