Once I get back into this, I'll rewrite the first post of this thread to have all the information and such.
YAY! To me, Essentials is more about an array of core mechanics and I really like the idea of it basically being the building blocks for different approaches on Pokemon FGD than just a compilation of scripts to encompass something that is more of an all-in-one kind of set up. Once I get my 3D modeling down and a base of Pokemon and Characters I wanted to try and find a collaborative partner for setting up a 3D engine core. However, it is such a big undertaking XD.
