Twine Version: 2.3.5
Story Format: Sugarcube 2.30.0
I’ve been working on a story for a while and it has 480 passages with 64k words which is mostly just the outline. (Want a way to feel like something will never get finished? That’s taken me about 2 years.) It’s got several what I think of as “zones” different areas to explore, and was starting to feel unwieldy to work in directly. So, when I started a new zone that I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to make work, I started a new story to make navigation and tracking easier, copying just the pieces of functional underlying code I had to (side bar, etc). That one is now at 160 passages and 12.5k words (I estimate I’m less than a quarter finished on this component) and I’m realizing that I need to figure out how to either merge this document into the other one or to make cross-links between the two.
Building links seems easy enough if there was a 1:1 in/out. But there is significant non-linear connectivity. It also won’t let any data be carried over between the two which isn’t an issue now but might become one later.
I’d prefer to be able to merge, but the only tool I’ve found is… not as user friendly as Twine. I’ve done passage-by-passage copy pastes on a smaller scale, but this is reaching the point of feeling a little ridiculous and I’m not quite ready to make that merge yet.
Suggestions? Comments? Thoughts? Am I just whining and need to break out the scissors and glue?
