Hey everyone, thanks for the comments, and get ready for the X-Mas update!


Finally, an update!

Hey guys, it's me, Nytkoi, creator of Pokemon Moonlight! Finally, the waited (or was Poke-fyu the only one who was

waiting for this xPPP) for update! This update includes; Two screenshots of the new event in Sunshine City and a graphical

screenshot. Batteries sold seperatly.

Let's get on with it, shall we? :PPP


Ooohh, do you help him, or are you too scared? :O Wait... What are we helping him with? (The answer will be announced in time)


Well, let's think. Bad guys really almost always have Zubats, so... This must be relating to the policeman! :O


Thanks to Infernal Contraption @ PC, we have a new Intro bg! (Hey that rhymes! MWAHAHAHA! >:D) The circle thing is not final,

but the actual bg is supposedly final. -.-;;

Well, that's all for now folks. I hope people besides Poke-fyu post and all that! Stay tuned to Channel ** to find out more

about Pokemon Moonlight (Created by the RM Developers) Now back to Bob, um... Something with the weather report in San Diego.

Good night!

That's it for the X-mas Update! Like the last paragraph said, stay tuned!


Merry X-mas, everyone! I hope you like the update!

Hey, Nytkoi, pretty nice Christmas update. I wonder what the policeman would need help with?
Also, the introduction background is not final. I think I made the shades too far apart.

Here's a newer version of the introduction background with the shades a bit closer together:

Well, I was saturating it the darker I went. Maybe I'll desaturate it the darker I go.
Also... the shades are not far apart in that one.

EDIT:
I tried another one, this time desaturating it the darker the shade:

Hmmm...
Maybe IC you could use the diamond intro colours
maybe it'll look better! also the thickness of the bars isnt right makes it look bad.
I also dont recommend shading the standing circle.

Yeah, the shading of the circle was Nytkoi's idea. :3
The whole shape and everything was Nytkoi, I just did the colors.

Actually, I was hoping you wouldn't shade the circle. xD (It was fine though) And I think the darkest color is too dark on the latest on, but besides that, the desaturated on is amazing! Good job! As soon as you change the circle, I'll insert it. :3

Edit; Oh, and Change the colors of the circle as well.

It's very... green. I still like it, though. It gives the battle menu a very different feel than what I'm used to.
As for the discussion about the intro screen from before, I'd like to suggest some changes to make it look better (then again, I don't always know what I'm talking about...):
1. Make the gradient start at the top. It would look much more professional and similar to actual pokemon games (specifically 3rd gen).

2. Make the bottom color dark, almost black, but rather a dark navy-like color. Don't use the same color for the spotlight.

3. Make the spotlight in a brighter, dirt-like color, with a similarly colored band around it that's maybe a bit thicker than the current one.

I meant for it to be green and tropical becuase besides from the game beign called Pokemon Moonlight, you're having a journey in a tropical region. I've always loved tropical rain forests, so that's what the outside is based on. And I think IC should definitly refer to h POKE's suggestions; they're really good ones. c:

A tropical rainforest, eh? I like it. If you were to make one, though, I would suggest making the beginning-of-the-game forest be a rainforest (obviously!). But what might not be so obvious is how to map it so it's not just a forest with a cool name. Here are some tips:
1. There should be a main path, but a good mapper always knows the devil is in the detail. Add breaks in the trees, shrubs along the path, and plenty of grass. Also, debris such as toppled trees and vine tiles could go a long way in adding feeling to your creation.

2. Mud. If I've learned anything from traversing the rainforest, it's that there's never enough of the stuff. You may be able to deviate off the main path, sure, but where will it take you? Right into a puddle of mud, of course!

3. The place should be, above everything except functionality, natural. A map with a straight path and huge plots of solid grass is a boring map. Put in trees in the way, and most definitely do not make the path through the rainforest span from end to end. It should break up, then pick back up again. Also, one of the simplest tricks to make a map more natural is just to take out patches of grass. Instead of a solid patch, randomly replace tiles at certain points with regular ground or dirt.

Leaving spaces in patches of grass is what I do best ; Lol. I'm really glad to have your help, h POKE. That was really informing. I'll be sure to remember those when I map thr rain forest! c:

Yes, you are! And you're a big help to me :3 And thank you! Glad you like it! The HP Boxes will probably be dark; mabye even platinum's, if they look nice. But that was my old plan. Now I'm starting to rethink this, becuase I'm wondering If dark HP Boxes + that message box would work well. :/

Well JV, then your wait is over!



NEW YEARS UPDATE !

Hey everyone it's me, Nytkoi, creator of Pokemon Moonlight! Yeah, you might think I'm just stopping and dropping off a sample screen, but if you did think that, you were wrong. This is a real update. What's so special about this one? It is being realesed on NEW YEARS DAY. Hopefully I'll have an update ready for every averge holiday, and this is New Years! It's a pretty big update, too! probably the biggest yet! Let's get started, shall we?

First of all, lets take a look at the amazing new windowskin! Thanks to PokemonOI for helping me make it work!


Now for the second screen! It's the amazing, the wondeful... D/P BATTLE TERRAINS! Thanks to .Phones for formatting them for me!


The third! And, wait! No, this isn't the last! Now, this one's credit goes all to yours truly for creating it in photoshop! Its the new pokemon selection screen! (Needs some tweeks here in there, I know).


The fourth and last screenshot! This again goes to me >3 for making it in photoshop. I present you... The new pokedex bg! (Again, subject to change)


Wait, that's not all? Really? It isn't? Nope! This is the announcment of the things that will be in the next update! "Aw, man!" Oh shut up!
There will be:
  • Finally, the real OW, replacing the crappy temporate one.
  • New hero/heroine sprite and backsprite shown
  • Proffesor sprite shown
  • Proffesor OW shown
  • New Intro BG
  • Mabye the new rival trainer and OW sprite

Yup, it's pretty much the 'OW Show'. xD *chrip chrip*

Thanks for reading the NEW YEAR'S UPDATE, and I hoped
you enjoyed it. Stay tuned to this thread for more details on:

POKEMON MOONLIGHT VERSION!

Nice update. I look forward to deeing the new character OW. However, I have some of my usual suggestions:
-In the second screenshot, you have extra pixels on the enemy pokemon circle (you know that grey circle thing...). Mainly they're up by the top edge (unless that's the terrain I see. On the ally pokemon side, you have a few pixels too few on the edge I can see, directly left of the status bar.
-In the third screenshot, you can call me out on this, but you're being a hipocryte here. You complain that a lot of styles are overused (*cough kyledove's tiles cough*), and yet you use that same old R/S/E pokemon selection system with a spruced up color scheme. Also, the scheme itself is a little distracting (good in the battle system, not there, though) in the way it contrasts so heavily with the bluish tones of the slots.
-In the fourth screenshot, the new pokedex looks quite good, I must say. The only thing I think is wrong with it is that the light green stripe at the top (that shows the sprite) could use to be stretched a few pixels further down, and the corner of the entry selection window has that same light green moving to the end of its field...
Overall, a very good job on the new menus, Nytkoi.

I think the newer poke sel. screen has a more calmer feel to it. The old one (green and orange) sort of yelled loudly at me with its bright colors. o.0

That's a big improvement on the old one. If you're going to continue in the R/S/E style, let me make a few more in-depth suggestions to make it go from good to great:
-I like the shadow you've done between the yellow and the light blue. Considering that we're not constricted to the GBA's limitations here, why not expand that to other sections of the screen (don't go overboard, 'cause that'll just make it look busy). But do go for a more complex shadow around each of the pokemon boxes (and the section where the edge meets the background on the first pokemon).
-Pokemon selection boxes: Use a color that more closely matches the blue in the background on the individual boxes. Also, instead of that drab, two-tone "gradient", why don't you use a more clean and modern style (of gradient)? When the box is unselected, I would suggest putting the darkest shade of blue in the center, and then working brighter as you go out on both sides (don't be cheasy! Go manual for this procedure!). When it is selected, I would suggest putting the lightest shade of blue in the center, then getting darker toward the edges.
-There's a small bead of blue on the bottom of the box that says "Choose a pokemon." It may not seem like it matters to you immediately, but trust me, it does.
