Btw even as experienced coder, you should still keep an eye on those rules. If you made many large RPGs, like Illusiat 7, 9, 10 or 11, good, but afterward, be careful to not jump to a ridiculously large one afterward. I did that with the Reign of Legends 4ever in 2004 and gave up due to the ridiculous amount of maps I would have needed to make. I had experience in making 20 hours long RPGs with more than 3 possible party characters and various features not seen in any other calc RPG, but jumping to a 80 hours long RPG was maybe a bit too much, even after 3 years of RPG coding.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Those are really good advices. There are exceptions, of course, but I saw so many RPGs in the past where the author gave up due to doing some of those mistakes.
