Hi.
I haven't made a log for this yet but I'm showcasing what I have currently for a game I'm working on, called Pokémon Amethyst/Jade/Calcite, being made with RXMP.

The Player:


Story:
Spoiler:
You are a young man/woman who sets out to make a name for yourself as a champion Pokémon trainer, you leave your house in Bloom Town and venture across the region (which has yet to be named); collecting gym badges and battling trainers.
But while this goes on, a team of evil-doers known as Team Alpha have spent years researching the legendary Pokémon of the region, and wish to control their power.
During your travels you will come across Team Alpha several times, thwarting their schemes and stopping them from gaining the power to control the region, and anywhere else they desire.


Team Alpha:


The Rival:
The player may name the rival.
The player also has a second rival, being the opposite gender of what you choose to be. (Also able to be named)

The Gym Leaders:
Spoiler:

Amara.
Uses Normal type Pokémon..


Hana.
Uses Grass type Pokémon.


Hiro (name subject to change)
Uses Electric type Pokémon.

(Sprite unavailable as of yet)
Stella
Uses Steel type Pokémon.


Ui (Name subject to change)
Uses Fire type Pokémon.


(Unnamed)
Uses Psychich type Pokémon.


Holly.
Uses Water type Pokémon.

(Sprite unavailable)
Joe.
Not confined to a type, uses a mix of powerful Pokemon.


The Eilte Four:
Spoiler:

Neil.
Uses Poison type Pokemon.


Grace.
Uses Ice type Pokémon.


Marcus.
Uses Dark type Pokémon.


Byron.
Uses Dragon type Pokémon.


Chris.
Champion of the league, not confined to type.


The dex so far:
Spoiler:
apologies, but it seems Imagebam doesn't work for linking images at the moment, go to http://www.imagebam.com/image/5da5fb192444989.


Screens:
Spoiler:

For their work on tiles.
Everything else has been done by myself or my brother.

Further Info:
- Once the player has bested the champions of the region, they can take a boat to the Hoenn region (in progress) where they may partake in gym challenges and battle that regions elites.
- Once a player has done all of that, they may still feel unchallenged: They may then venture to the Battle Resort, opened by the home region's league champion; features things such as a battle tower where players may choose battle paths including: Kanto gym leaders; Johto gym leaders; Hoenn gym leaders; Sinnoh gym leaders; Unova gym leaders (including gym leaders added in B/W2).
- There's also been consideration on adding a 3rd region.
- Sprites and names are subject to change at any point, considering a lot of them were done years ago.
- To give a percentage on how much is done:
- Sprites: 85%
- Maps: 75%
- scripting: 12%


Progress is slow at the moment as I'm getting a major error with sprites.
If anyone has a solution or may be able to help, please go to here
Also, please don't ask me to speculate a release date, it's a very slow project that I'm working on, almost solitary.

Edit: Because of not being able to find a work-around for the couple of errors I'm faced with, I'm afraid production is on complete hold.

I advise re-uploading your screenshots one by one to your photobucket or tinypic. So that they do not get reduced. You could try uploading your dex at http://www.imagebam.com/.

Good luck!

Wow, you have some gorgeous sprites! I love your trainers, they look really nice! Your maps look really nice too! I'd love to see the PokéDex but it's so tiny D;

These sprites are actually rather good for fusions and edits. There are a few problems with one or two (Holly's legs and Hana's feet are two of the ones that are immediately obvious), but on the hole, they're not bad.

For me, some of the tiles you've used are too unsaturated compared to the OW sprites, and I'm a bit concerned by the scale of your game. Including one region is tricky enough, but you may get unstuck with plans for two or three. Focus on getting the main one finished first before worrying too much about the others.

I would consider making a video to show how the game is shaping up in motion, too. It'd be good to see everything in action!

Good work so far.

Thanks!
I've re-upped the screens one by one, but imagebam seems to be giving me hassle with direct image linking, so I've included a link to the appropriate page.

Thanks for the critique. I know there are a few little things that could use a change up, but right now I'm working on getting the majority done before I fine-tune it.
As for the region work, I'm making sure to do it one region at a time.

I'll see about making a small video at some point.

Quick update: First draft of the world map is done, although changes might be made in the future.


also, progress is at it's slowest thanks to a few errors I'm getting.
If you have anything that might help me solve these errors, send me a message or check

Hi, um excuse me. But do you really need to take all three of those names? I kind of want to name my game Jade, but if yours turns out as good as it looks, im afraid mine may get shut out. Please maby think about dropping the name jade. Thank you.

On your fakemon sheet, Anamus is a trace of a drawing I made about a decade ago: http://www.iveechan.com/zenphoto/fur...ryphon.png.php

I'm not planning on taking all three of these names, I just can't really decide on what to call it out of those three.
You're free to use the name Jade if you want.

Really? I'm sorry. I'll get it changed.
My brother does some of the sprite work, so I don't often see it he's getting images from somewhere.
Apologies for the inconvenience.

The sprites for this look amazing!!
But the tiles(oustide/overworld) look dull, if i'm honest, nothing really stands out, or catches the eye.
