H System is GO

Hey all, sorry for the lack of updates these past couple of weeks. I've been pushing really hard to get the H system ready and have finally reached the point where I can finish the final footage for the video (which should be ready in a few days). I've also managed to improve the battle performance further so that on my rig it is basically running at the 60 FPS cap all the time.

So yeah, at this point the battle system doesn't really resemble RPG Maker at all anymore (horray). While some of what is going on in the screenshot is reminiscent of other H games, there are a lot of new interface widgets that I'll leave you to guess about up until I can make a dev journal post or something to explain the H system better.  Feel free to ask questions though!

One major hurdle involves the fact that clothing doesn't animate in the exact same way that the body does, and this alone will make it impossible to get the effect of stretched fabric/material around skin. A second issue is that unless physics simulation is enabled on the clothing you aren't going to get wrinkles that you would expect (and the results probably wouldn't be great for what we're going for here anyways). The critical issue though is that poseable, conforming clothing models require that the core geometry never …
