Tropes in ''My Time at Portia''

This page is dedicated to improved Trope mining for this game's TVTropes page, while its stock source editor proves a headache to use.

  • 1 Gameplay Tropes
  • 2 Storyline Tropes
  • 3 YMMV
    • 3.1 Awesome
    • 3.2 Funny
    • 3.3 Nightmare Fuel
  • 4 Trivia
  • 5 Fridge
    • 5.1 Fridge Brillance
    • 5.2 Fridge Horror
  • 6 Headscratchers

  • Acceptable Breaks from Reality: Hoo boy. The game surely... simplifies the process of constructing what amounts to a fully functioning bus, as just one example, but it's understandable for gameplay purposes.
    • Not only can you chop down an entire forest and it'll grow back to full size within a week, the nearby rocks you've shattered for stone and marble will also grow back in the same places. It makes sense for the sake of always having easy access to wood and stone, but it sti…

Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started My Time at Portia

  1. You have a rolling set of 10 saves. If you want to be able to load your game further back than about a week and a half, you need to manually back up that day before it disappears from the list. Backups appear at the bottom of the load list; while you have a limited number of them (30?), if you run out of backup slots, the backups will never be automatically deleted, but you'll instead be prompted to manually delete one or more to free up room before saving another.
  2. You can slow down the in-game time. Moving the Game Speed slider in the Options menu all the way down to 50 will give you a lot more time to get things done in a day. (There are also some scenarios where it will help you get ahead of NPCs.)
  3. Higgins always heads into the Commerce Gui…

Two Timer

Two Timer is one the few achievements I had yet to earn. Up until a couple of minutes ago. L(° O °L) Who knew you couldn't ride past one partner while on a date with the other! ◕_◕ I'm still laughing. I've been trying to figure out how to cuddle in front of one or the other. It's silly features like jealousy that keep me coming back to the game. Seriously! I'm having a little laughing party all by myself. Both Aadit and Dr.Xu were very angry •`_´•. Aadit ended the date, but got over it quickly and let me give him a ride back to his house. Dr. Xu is still very angry •`_´• and waiting for an apology bear ʕ·͡ᴥ·ʔ.

The Flying Pigs

I'm surprised there's not a page for The Flying Pigs adventurers guild. There's a statue in front of the Civil Corps. Arlo has the goal to join the flying pigs. There's quests involved for his "training for the flying pigs". Isaac talks about the flying pigs in some of his dialogue. Or it could be added to the Civil Corps page. I'd like to do this, but not sure if it's desired.

A new Savegame for testing

today I will start a completely new savegame  to test some ingame facts ... so, if the ingame date really matters the triggering of some missions and other events

I will massively cheat, hex-edit and use my beloved trainer program ... so no really fair game, but for fun and gaining of knowledge :)

Now and then I will report my experiences, but only if I'm in the mood and not on a regular basis.

First action will be, starting that new game with the Trainer and CheatEngine running in the background, to test, what happens if the ingame time is stopped at the arrival in Portia and to search from the beginning for the 5.250 Reputation Points, Higgins is starting with ... hehe, they won't last for long :P

So "Have fun" to you and me :)

Tips To Know Before Playing 'Portia'

Here are some tips that will any any new player.  

Slow down the game's time. You can go into 'game settings' and slow down how fast the game-day passes in real life. Default speed is 100 which means the game will save every 20 minutes. 70 speed will save every 40 minutes and 50 speed (lowest setting) will save every 60 minutes. Any progress made before the game saves, will be lost so sleep in your bed before logging out of the game. 

Make lots of storage. Craft about 10 Wooden Storage to begin with. Keep 1-4 boxes inside your house so you don't waste your precious outdoor space. Keep 1 box next to your crafting station for quick-access. Opening one box will allow you to move left or right viewing the other boxes as well. If you like organiza…

To pester Higgins - part III

since I don't feel the duty, to play the game as the developers may have wished or thought, I'm a bad guy, using a trainer program each day.

And so yesterday in the evening I figured, if one stops the ingame time exactly on the stroke at 8:00 in the morning, Higgins will stay outside the Commerce Guild Building, wandering over Peach Plaza, while the player is able to go inside and choose the wanted commission without ruffle or excitement. And while the time still stops, the player may fulfill and deliver his commission ... and eventually starts the time again, so Higgins (and all other NPC's) starts his day ... so this start of time might be neccessary, to meet the costumer to deliver the commission.

Aaaaand yesss - it was satisfying again :…

To pester Higgins - part II

did I tell, that I really don't like Higgins ? If not, hereby I want to state it as a fact :)

This guy is bullying from the start of the game, tries to irritate, scare away, hinder and slander the player at any given opportunity ... and as I don't like this in RL, I don't like it from an NPC :)

Each workday he takes a (the best possible) commission, strolls homewards, lazes around at his 2 furnaces ... and then : nothing ... he never goes out, to deliver something to a customer or to Antoine or Albert or someone else ... but every morning he gaines a bunch of reputation points, the player had to work the ass off ... and he : for nothing ... even if he takes commissions, that may need materials from Ingals mine or Poplar Wood before the Porti…

That lonely Chest on the small island - part II

this weekend I've learned two things:

1) it is better to trigger the horse-jump as short as possible before touching the water instead doing so near the hills top ... seems a bit easier to handle ... but may need verification :)

2) there IS a way back from the island to the mainland with a horse ... BUT so far I did it only one time and failed before and after felt one million times ... from the mainland one may have a little bit support through the hight of the bank at the narrow hill, but from the island ... don't ask, it was ways more frustrating than the other way were ... but if triggered all events in the exact right moment, one may jump to and from the island with a horse, to get this chest without the Robopig Rider :) ... to be hones…

That lonely Chest on the small island

south of the players workshop is something very special ... everytime when walking or riding the way nearby, it pokes in the eye ... "come, get me :)" ... the first thousand playthroughs I've waited fingersnipping until I got the Robopig Rider, to get that chest. Then I've read in a forum of a german computer game magazine about a trick with a jumping horse - but not really explained, so I failed with several attemps and considered it as a hoax. Then I've read that comment on the Wiki-page, and despite my understanding of english language is far away from being perfect, that gave me the crucial hint, how to manage it with a horse : "and dismount mid air". So I got a goal : to verify that method by myself. And after appr. 15 to 20 unsuccess…

Diggin' a complete level of Abandoned Ruins

this is a veeeery slow process, since that lagging effect (Disable animations of "incoming" digged materials) is boring as hell ... and so most of the days I'm digging until the inventory is completely filled with stone, sand, soil, copper and tin (and Data Disks and #2-chips for sure :) with a randomly found relic piece here and there, then I leave the ruins, went home and go to sleep after sorting the precious things in my storage boxes ... and after restarting time in my trainer :) ... next morning starts with training, hugging and feeding my 2 horses, reading the mails, hitting Higgins for 3 times, taking and solving my daily Commerce Guild Contract, selling all the dirt to A&G construction, Paulie and Mars, hitting Higgins a 4th time …

The trials and tribulations one suffers to bring life in this world.

MTaP launches! State of the wiki...

Hello Portians! First and foremost, I apologize for my inactivity due to my busy schedule. I'm not sure how active I will be in the future, but I do hope to still contribute from time to time and provide assistance wherever possible.

With that being said, congratulations to My Time at Portia for successfully launching their game for the PC! It's been a long journey since Alpha 1.0, but we are now here at the first version of the game. The game's not over yet! There's still tons of details to be added, so stay tuned!

Before I begin, I would like to formally introduce one of the newest team members in the administration team, Rojadyn! Rojadyn, also known as Esposaderojo, is a member from the Gamepedia MTaP Wiki who will be joining us. With Curse…

I did it! I have 10 million gols!

It was a personal goal. To hit 10 million gols before the next patch. And I did it. I also ended up getting everybody in town (except Higgins) to be my BFF. 

It was a lot of grinding for materials. It took me about 3 weeks since Starlight Island came out with the Factory. This made production incredibly fast and of course automated. I just needed to fill it with materials. I was skeptical at first and left it empty for a few days. Then I decided to move my machines inside. I created more machines and switched them out pretty often, trying to figure out how I wanted the factory to work for me. I figured out exactly what I wanted to produce to sell to stores on high market days.

I built up a supply of items I wanted to sell. But it started to …

Beta Scrapnotes

Musings on things that will inevitably change throughout the development process, therefore this may be scattered and will be informal:

  • Time will pause when looking at the commission board, however when Higgins will still be able to interact with it while you are deciding, so there is a very limited window of time to get the commission with the best payout.

The artisan skill is a very useful one in that you can save yourself some rare or complicated crafting materials, but it has a sort of 'knack to it' in that it doesn't reduce the initial cost but the final "spend" of resources; I sometimes think of it like it refunds that much of the materials, and maxing it out is the most practical option right now so I will continue using the maxed out…

All game data is stored in the Program Directory\Portia_Data\StreamingAssets\CccData\LocalDb.bytes table.

In this blog I will do my best to document what the tables contain. For now it is mainly for myself but maybe other people can get something out of this too.

Extracting gift information from the game

Without further ado, here is the link:

  • Up to date table with relationship points as of 31.07.2018, ver. 8.0.106803

These are extracted directly from the game files (Version Alpha 8.0.106803) and processed with scripts I wrote to make them human-readable.

If you want to know more, read on.

The data has been confirmed by analysis of the runtime code (thanks to NetherKitteh on the Discord!), so the above table should be correct, except for human error by myself when writing the extraction script.

When you first begin your new life in Portia, you're basically broke - and your early quests will give you next to nothing in terms of actual money. The main questline of Alpha 1.0 ends with you building a bridge to Amber Island, but in order to do that you're going to need a lot of copper, as well as the ability to craft bronze items. And to craft bronze items, you're going to need a Level 2 Workshop - which requires 1000g to upgrade, not to mention the item requirements.

Have a tip or trick you'd like to share? Toss it in the comments below, and it might get added to our list!

Current as of Alpha 1.0

Hotbar & Inventory & Controls

  • Use your mouse wheel to quickly scroll through hotbar items.
  • When a hotbar item is selected, you can click "R" on your keyboard to automatically move it into your inventory.
  • The reverse also works; select an item in your inventory and click "R" to move it to your hotbar (as long as there is space)
  • Hold your mouse button down to automatically keep using your axe or pickaxe.
  • Keep your sword in slot 1, and your axe and pickaxe in slots 2 and 3, or however you prefer. I also usually keep the fishing pole on me, in slot 4.

My Time at Portia FAQ

Post your questions in the comments, and I'll update this as we go along! 

Q: Is there a less clunky way to use tools?

Hold down your mouse while using your axe or pickaxe for a smoother experience! This is especially useful in the mine, where you've got a pale reticle showing where you're digging - but if you don't see that pale circle of light where you're aiming, that means you cannot reach that spot and won't hit anything. Note that this does not work for the swords; swords must be manually clicked each time.
