[RMVX] Pokémon: Ancient Series
Before I say anything else, this is my first attempt at a Pokémon game and have next-to-no scripting and spriting knowledge, I can edit both - but neither can come from scratch, so I'm hunting for an ACTIVE team.
Okay, so now that's out the way, let's introduce the game!
Mid-game (WARNING - SPOILERS, SKIP IF DESIRED):
PLOT TO BE CONTINUED
Featured Feature ( xD ):
Basically what I need it graphic people and scripters - mapping is very much my skill and so, unless I can't continue for a while for whatever reason I'll be wanting some reserve mappers.
Before I even think of adding more I want to know if people would play this.
Also, the PALKIA-based version features pre-ice age and Dialga at the Jurassic period.
I know you said you were going to add more infromation but I think you should add a list of features you are going to add. I know when I look at a post I look at the features and if they are interesting I will continue to read it. I do like how you didn't just focus on one Pokemon like other games. By focusing on Pokemon like Lugia and Dialga and the others it makes the game alot more interesting.
Unfortunately I don't x_x
I plan to do 'Time jumps' though - the idea is that some maps will connect to other maps in a separate section allowing different Pokemon to be caught and a new style of game play - I'm not doing that for all maps though - only applicable ones.
I'm not sure of anything else at the minute thoug :/
That is a good idea right there. It would definetly add to the games uniqueness.
I am a firm believer that a game cannot be made until it has been completely thought out.
Work on it.
I'd suggest this for a start:
When you write the story down, use at least 500 words.
Explain how it works. For example: If Celebi or Dialga is causing the time travel, how does it work:
A: You must have one or the other in your party
B: You have a device that summons them for the sole purpose of time travel
C: They appear at set points during the game and send you back/forward for story purposes
D: All/a mix of the above.
Simply saying 'time travel' doesn't cut it.
Great idea, not make it better!
As a shameless plug, I feel that I have an excellent story on my thread:
"Pokemon Legends: Regigigas"
Just scroll down a bit.
I could use some critiques, but none have given me any.
A nice feature that would exploit the time travel aspect (assuming one can jump between the two or more time periods at will) is to have paths that are blocked in one time but are clear in another.
For example, in the Present you encounter a gorge which you cannot get past (no one's been kind enough to set up a bridge). You jump back to the Ice Age, where the gorge is now a somewhat different shape and filled with a glacier (complete with slippery tiles). However, there's almost nothing beyond the gorge in the Ice Age, but you can jump back to the Present, arrive on the other side of the gorge and continue on a path that has since been created there.
I'd imagine some adaptation of the Dive mechanic would be best to achieve this. Since it'd be unwieldy to allow unrestricted time travel (you'd have to make the whole region twice, for one), perhaps you should claim that there are only certain places that are temporally unstable, and that instability is what allows your Time Rod (or whatever time-travelling device you have) to work and teleport you between the two times.
Or just use portals, which is a lot easier (and rather less impressive than Time Diving)...
I wouldn't mind credit if this post inspires you (or anyone else).
Using the dive mechanic would actually be perfect for the situation. With a few tweaks here and there it could work out to be an enjoyable scene (the time slipping)
I'll say this is a good attemp, at least you tried:classic:
Okay, for now, I'm not doing this.
I've too much work on my hands at the minute and can't really handle much else than eventing and mapping.
Please don't despair though - I'll bring this back (probably) sometime next year. Thanks for your understanding.
I'd like to also thank you for your helpful comments, I promise that you will NOT be disappointed!
