Not really a fan of orohnpokemon's tiles or Gen 5 ones in general, but it does look pretty nice. It's often hard to pull off wooded starting towns since most of them just have 4 houses out in the open and the only trees surround the town as a whole, but you seem to have done it well. The trees really seem to clash with the grass, though, imo, maybe you could change the palletes so the greens coexist a bit better. Hopefully the crit was half decent and good luck with the game, steve.
Just wanted to show my 3D engine test map here on PokeCommunity. It was made in GameMaker 8.0. It's using a modified version of a Kit I am making in GameMaker to turn it 3D (the Kit is going to be 2D since it's easier for me work with). This 3D engine is going to be used in 2 projects, Pokemon RisingEmerald and Pokemon Cinder and Foam. The current screenshot uses models from Pokemon Cinder and Foam.
Wow, Ramond, that looks really good, but it seems a little too dark. The player seems to blend into the background and it's really hard to see (or that may be because my computer brightness is the lowest lol). I really like that light source, I see it's those Pokemon from BW. Is there any AA in the light source circle? It looks a little rough.
