If you're name isn't on the front page where the team is, then you're not on the team. So, you're not on the team.

I don't think that way is accurate...If you check on Pg 6,you will know that a person called NawidN was added to the team too,and do you see his/her name on the front page?I Think Not.

Aénex is right.

I have just updated the team with NawdiN. As much as I appreciate your enthusiasm and need to help out, I just don't need any help right now. If you really want to support the game or help out with its production, you could put a support bar in your signature. So, the answer is going to have to be no.

Well firstly, the name; Ironed Heart? Your heart has been ironed flat? Or is it made of iron? The name suggests the former, and it's a bit odd sounding. Concept is nice though.

The region map looks interesting. Plenty to see and do it seems. Looks like it should be interesting to explore!

The starting story is a nice change from the norm. The mother being the professor is a good twist. The thing with the Elite Four is also interesting, I don't think anyone else has attempted such a story twist so far, and it seems to be a rather good one!

The Pokémon sprites are a little dull. There's a lack of brighter shades, so they don't pop out at all, and the outlines are a little dark which only makes the problem worse.

Sprite problem aside though, I hope you're making good progress. Good luck with your project!

Hey guys, I've got an update on the way, but first... I need some suggestions.

I want to change the name of this game, as I don't like it anymore. It was originally a placeholder, but, I haven't had any ideas as to what to change it to. So, I want you all to give me some ideas as to what I should rename the game. Any help is appreciated, and don't worry guys. This isn't dead, I'm just very slow right now. Rest assured, once the name has been changed, there WILL be an update.

Glad to see you're still working on this, it's probably one of my favorite games right now :')

Maybe Pokemon Jasper, or Pokemon Cobalt, Dioptase is a really neat mineral, too, although Ironed Heart is still a pretty neat name.

Thanks for the suggestions, dear!

The kind words make my very happy, and keep me inspired to work on the project! <3

I like Pokémon Zircon, but, I did a search on it and there was already one in the Game Development archives. For now, I think I'll change the name to Zircon~. Thanks, KidNova!

Now, I might as well get the update post ready.

Looks great with the CSS design and all, but there are no screenshots, my advice is never to use www.iaza.com, every screenshot in any of the showcases on these forums that comes from there just has the websites name on it and no actual screenshot. Good fakemon starters though.

Yeah, I've learned my lesson with Iaza.

I've got Dropbox now, and that's what I'm using. The screenshots that were previously there were very outdated, so, I'm working on some maps and touching them up. I'll update them when I get a chance. I am working on the thread CSS as we speak, just getting a few images sorted out. Many thanks, though. I appreciate it!

Guys, this isn't dead. :3

I've just been busy job searching and I've had little time to work on this. However, I am in the process of eventing the entire introduction! I should have a major update coming soon. Thanks for being patient, you guys!

I'm terribly sorry about the lack of updates, everyone!

I know some people have been saying that this project is dead and I'm not working on it, but I'm happy to say that the rumor is false! I have been slowly working on Zircon while working on some commissions and doing some personal job hunting. I haven't had much success with the job hunt, but I have been making some decent progress on the game itself. There has been a few graphical changes along with minute character changes. I haven't gotten a lot of art done but hopefully that will change soon enough. I've said it a thousand times already, and I'm going to say it again; I'm learning to sprite, so, I'll be looking for some constructive criticism on the Pokémon sprites. Now, I guess it's time to update this ancient thread, yes?


November 23rd, 2012 Thread Update


This update consists of new screenshots of the starting town of the starter selection process, the rival battle, and one screenie of Route One. There are ten in total, all displaying various parts; hopefully, you all will like them! Squirtle, Torchic, and Turtwig overworlds are all temporary and will be replaced very soon along with the back sprites.

Pokémon Laboratory


Rival Encounter

Ignore the open door... ;3;


Route One


Gym Leader Update
I would like you all to meet Tara!
Tara
An Elegant Beauty

Tara is the seventh Gym Leader. She is an elegant Pokémon Trainer accompanied by her lovely Water Pokémon. She uses them to participate in shows and to please the crowds of children with their splashes. Tara is rarely seen in her Gym, she's normally out close to the beaches or any body of water. She is extremely vain and isn't above degrading her challengers.
Badge: Tsunami Badge


...and so, that ends this update!
I would just like to thank you all for staying with me during this project. To the small amount of supports that Zircon has, I want to thank all of you; you all are what drive me to continue working on this game. Some new screenshots should be coming soon, so, stay turned! The first post has also been updated with the rest of the confirmed Gym Leaders. Expect a small preview of the Pokédex, too!

Great update on Pokemon Zircon,but I would like to point out a few slight errors in these screenshots.If these screenshots are WIP and not official,then oh well,but here goes!

Error 1:This is obvious;The player must be an inch shorter than Flaire,cuz look at their heads' positions!Totally different height,and since they should be about the same age,I find that a bit abnormal. ._.

Error 2:What happened to the shadows of Flaire,Professor Peach and the guy beside her?GASP THEY HAVE NO SHADOWS THEY ARE - Barrels. xD Yeah they're pretty much ghosts without a shadow.

Error 3:Flaire's VS Mugshot is missing her dye of yellow hair in her side bangs and back hair(eh random names for them,kay?I'm no hair specialist).Also,in case you didn't notice,the US VS sign isn't actually supposed to have that dot overlapping the S,only the Japanese one does.But it doesn't really show much,so meh. =P Also(optional error),Flaire's VS Mugshot would actually look better if the VS Sprite wasn't cropped like that,in my opinion.Or you could just slightly crop her lower to draw more of the upper portion of her head...
--
So that's all!And...eh Lavapho's new sprite kinda reminds me of Tails Doll with that empty creepy emotionless look...Any chance you could change it back to the old sprite?I won't have nightmares then... x0 So yeah that's the end,so bye.

Actually most of those aren't errors, just differences in style. The shadows are indeed errors, but having someone taller than the hero and the vs bar changes are just aesthetics that differ from the norm a little.

Anyways it's a great update Elaynii, I love the little descriptions you have before choosing your starter. Good luck, and hopefully we'll be seeing more updates soon!

Well, I'll respond in the order you pointed out the errors in.

Flaire's overworld was done by a friend, who has his own style. Be that as it may, Flaire IS older than the player by two years. Plus, she's getting a redesign; no need to stress over that. Her VS mugshot is pretty much accurate to her new design; she no longer has the flame streaks on her hair and I've toned her hair down to where it flows naturally. I also may give her more of her head, but I have restrictions on the mug size.

Regarding the shadows... Anabelle is the only one to have that honor. None of the characters aside from the heroine currently have shadows. I manually added that in just to see if it would change my view on it. I'm manually added the shadows in one by one, and it'll take some time. As for the VS sequence, I'm experimenting with it. I personally like the period, but, if people comment on it, I'll remove it or change the style.

As for Lavapho's sprite, I rather like the updated look and a good friend of mine took the time out of his busy day to sprite it. I don't want to throw it away, I guess you'll have to get used to it.

Thanks, Conan! :'D

More updates should be a bit more regular now that I have some inspiration to actually work on the game itself; I'm bogged down with commissions right now, but, I should be able to get some work in.

This game is looking really good, it's probably one of my favorites at the moment. The overworld is really nice and synthesized; everything looks so natural and beautiful. I'm wondering why you didn't keep Lavapho's old sprite though, I think it looked better than the one right now :/. Overall it's a great update, good luck with everything. Also, what's the etymology on Tara?

Wow, thank you!

Major thanks go out to Abnegation for helping with my maps; it's only thanks to him that I've improved on my mapping! ♥ Regarding Lavapho's sprite, I changed Lavapho's sprite because a friend offered to resprite it, but if want the old sprite back, I'll change it.
Tara's name was suggested by a friend, though her original name was Tori. Like with Lavapho, I'll change her name if people comment on it enough. Personally, I like Tara more than Tori..

I greatly appreciate your feedback!

Tara's good.Normally nowadays fanmade Pokemon Gym Leaders and Elite 4 all have weird names.Like,they should choose a typical nowadays name that sounds normal but has a meaning behind it,like Tara.Tori doesn't really sound normal.Also,problem with the Lavapho's sprite,like I said before,is that it's too emotionless.Its old sprite brought out its arrogant and proud personality,while this one just stares at you like its waiting for you to give it free moneyz.NEVET SHALL I DO THAT,YOU EVIL LAVAPHO. >80

Okay, here is a slight update!

It's nothing too big, just a few graphical things like sprites and general tile updates. I've been browsing deviantART for some tiles and finally found the original tiles for my grassy mountain tile. I've edited it and made it into a regular rocky cliff tile, so the previous tiles which were the one tile high HG/SS tiles have now been removed. I've also ripped a few things from the said game and inserted it in Zircon; two things being the sign and arrows. It's nothing big as I already said, but I think it looked nice in the game!

Here is an example on Route 2...



Also, there is a required quest that the first Gym Leader, Folia will give you. In order to progress through the story, you will have to find the key to her Gym, which she lost in Dencreep Forest. Here are a few screenshots from that quest... and guess who makes their debut appearance? That's right, Team Nemesis!



Also, shadows have been implemented and Lavapho's sprite has been updated to the previous version, however the necessary color changes have been made. Aside from the custom tiles I'm getting commissioned, the game itself is done up until the second Gym. :'D I'll be doing some beta testing and if everything goes well... a demo could be released soon! Don't get your hopes up though, I'm a horrible perfectionist.

That concludes this mini-update!

I am a fan of RPMXP games, so this project will definitely be watched.

I really loved this here, BTW! xD

Great job at making me laugh, just because of how true the statement about the official games is! xD
