I'll go ahead and tell you what you'll be seeing. We'll be having a variety of different lands, which do not make appearences in BW, giving it its own feel. The tiles will also be completely different, even if they have been in BW. The only reasons I think you think it's too different is because all you see are the basic tiles: beach, ocean, trees, grass, tall grass, etc.
You'll be seeing: Farmland/Rice fields Autumn/Spring Forest Geyser Fields/Volcano Plains/Dry Expanses (I really don't know how to desribe it, but it's a desert, but without the sand. It's pretty much like Arizona) Mountains/Snow/Rope Bridges Marshlands Coral Reef (acts as Safari Zone)
The wide variety of biomes is something that relates to the storyline a bit. I hope you can see how the tiles will vary.
Copied? What do you mean by that? Like, ripping them? If so, I didn't. The tiles of the game right now don't show much variation from BW, because there isn't much. But after you get off the island, everything will start getting a lot more creative and different. I looked at the BW tiles for reference to get the style. But no more looking for reference.
I am feeling down. I have nothing to do with anything but the graphics of the game. So when someone says they dont like the graphics of the game, then why shouldn't I feel bad? That means I'm not doing my part and allowing them to have the best graphical experience they can have. :,(
