The shadow of the pokemon has already been coded in the Starter kit.

First of the white and blue of routes must NEVER touch. put something in between them a city or a place of intrest(green)
EDIT: so at least it the blue is touching the white make it shaped lik the coast line and not just straight.


Okay here's my screenshot it's in a forest north of the first town where you get your starter. i made it in to a gif for intertanment.

Actually, it doesn't matter if it touches? and also you have also a route blocked off by a black line which I don't think is meant to be there?

The screenshot looks alright, the flower looks out of place? It's too bright compared to the other tiles and i think the sign has a tile error and is the person's speech meant to have capitals in front of all words? Other than that it looks alright.

There is no rule saying that. It's perfectly acceptable, I like the idea if I'm understanding it correctly (having a bit of a route be land and the rest ocean). I like the world map except for the odd shaped town. I see you wanted it to be a circle but it doesn't work right.

Hmm....I think the shadow is too big. You should cut it down on size...at least the vertical size.

you have to remember that caterpie is on a flat horizontal surface. if he were against a wall that shadow would be alright but not perfect. in this case, i suggest you make the vertical height of the shadow at least on third of its current size. it needs to plane with the floor beneath it.

If you need help perfecting it, get some object and place it on something flat, like say a desk. Shine a torch at it in a similar direction as the light source in the battle. It should give you an idea of what the angle should look like.

Yes but you have to remember that the light source is not comming from the ground. Your shadow would be perfectly fine if there is a light comming from below the pokemon, but instead the light is comming from above it, so the y zoom should be smaller than 1 (I made it 0.5), because that will make the shadow appear on the floor like it is supposed to when the light from the sun hits the pokemon.

So here is the first town for the MMORPG Chibitos. What do you think needs changing? Don't talk about the shadows of the houses 'cause i really don't know how to give shadows so that one is an issue i'm aware of. Another one are the lightposts. Some people say that it doesn't look bad and others say that it does look bad. What do you think? (And yes i love the 3rd Gen Tiles).

P.S: Don't mind that sprite appearing everywere. It was the only way i could take the pic of the map.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the map isn't really done there are messing some cars to the top of the map. But i don't really have the tiles for that yet. And the beach will have more things and so will the water.

I'd say make 'the points of the flame that stick out at the top' in the middle, while making the yellow circle following it up a bit.

technically this is not a screenshot, but this is what I am going to be working on. The scripts where a little buggy when I got a hold of them, but I manage to fix most. Right now I am working on a Choose Pokemon scene (through code). Once I am done with it I am going to show it to you guys.

It's not that bad. However, a couple of things bother me.
The Pokémon selection thing is one of them. The bars take up a large section of the screen, and there's only four of them. When the player has all the spots fill up in his or her team, then the bars would go right off of the screen. My suggestion would be to shorten the bars, and move the "Choose Pokémon." Window box to the top screen. Then it'd be perfect.

Another thing that really bothers me, is the menu. It's the same situation with the Pokémon Selection screen. The bottom two bars distorted, so you shouldn't shrink all of the other ones to be the same size. After that, then it would look perfectly fine. Also, the HGSS Pokédex seems to work perfectly, not sure if you scripted it or not, but it looks really nice.

That's about it. I hope to see more of the game. Keep it up.

My very first custom script, and it felt good. Still needs expanding as it is version one.
Thoughts please Ohh Yea all graphics will be changed later just want the script to work perfectly.


Basically its an event where the player gets to choose there starter just like in the original games.
