That's pretty simple...
What about... Evil \v[&H03] and something what would suit the space of the text.

I wish I'd seen this thread sooner, but I'm happy to have read it now! My favorite stories are ones about animals: Watership Down, Ratha's Creature, Tailchaser's song... so xenofic in Pokemon hack form makes me really excited. Seriously looking forward to seeing how this progresses.

Oh yeah, and if you ever needed help on alternate Pokemon sprites... even though it looks like you have that covered... I'd be happy to help, heh.

I don't mind how long it takes and I am waiting very patiently. The more time she has to work on it, the more polished and bug-free it's going to get.

This looks awesome! Will it the cause of the Nuclear Explosions be revealed? It could be interesting, maybe in a flashback or something.

Quick answering of questions - the whole "what is said when you send your team members or yourself out?" question has been resolved; even if not exactly the way I really wanted to resolve it. ' I really liked the [name] vs. [enemy]! idea that was posited, but it was too long to fit, as was most everything else suggested. I could have just repointed the text, 'tis true, but I've had problems with repointing important text in the past and didn't want to risk it, so I just settled for a short, quick "Ready!"

As for "What to do?", again, I didn't have a lot of room there at that offset, and it sounded a little bit better than what I had there originally; which was "What move?" XD

Now, moving on to other questions...ah, yes, this world's past plays a big role in its present and future. You'll get to find out quite a bit about why the world is the way it is now, and how it relates not only to the motivations behind why the villains want to do their dastardly deeds, but also how the past affects certain of your team members, leading them to troubling realizations... As for why the tiles aren't being designed to scale...it is an idea I very briefly considered, but in the end wrote off for a couple of reasons - a lot of older RPGs and other, similar-type games don't really bother with the issue; and secondly, it would be INSANE to to make, insert, and map with tiles of that nature ' And most importantly, it would look bizarre since most of the Pokemon sprites are roughly the same size, which throws porportions on the overworld out of whack anyway, considering a Charizard's sprite isn't much bigger than your own ' Even if I did make tiles that looked correct for a Pichu's size, it wouldn't look right for a Onix. ' Suspension of disbelief, folks XD

Anyway, I apologize for my long absence, and am afraid to say that my absence will likely continue Life's been treating me roughly as of late - a lot of different things are going on (on which I'd rather not elaborate), and I haven't had the time, or been in the mood most days, to really do much here on PokeCommunity or with my game. What I have done on SRT that's not been mentioned here is to make and insert all the sprites for every team member character (along with the mysterious Stranger Aspen mentioned earlier); made a couple new maps with the help of the wonderful Deokishisu, and ripped MIDIs from Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, which I then remixed (in order to fit with Ruby's specifications of no more than five DirectSound tracks playing at once and having to use only certain instruments per voicegroup) and made into looping .s files.

The screens look a bit more interesting and natural now; and again, I have Deokishisu's wonderful advice, guidance and constructive criticism to thank for that The stairs are a placeholder tile, they will be replaced with something more natural in time, such as the Rock Climb rocks. And I'm still unsure about that HGSS grass I have in there - I'd like some more opinions on whether I should keep it or replace it with either the Kyledove style HGSS-esque grass, or with individual tufts like Ruby had in the first place. What do you think?

... Pardon me, but... I don't like the HGSS grass. It is so... bushy...

I'd recommend you do not use Grass at all. Keep it as PMD as possible. Change it to a normal type and change its behaviour.

This post is rather long, so bear with me ' I ask that you do read it though, no matter how tl;dr it might seem - the purpose of this post is to propose a vote, and I really need the feedback to decide how I'm going to proceed with Super Rising Thunder in the future.

First off, I owe all you guys a big, heaping apology ' I've neglected this thread, and Pokecommunity in general, for far too long. I was sick with a respiratory bug, had to finish planning an upcoming vacation, and then was away on the mentioned vacation (which was awesome - I was in
Australia for most of April and the first few days of May). Since returning I'd been jetlagged and tired and had to slowly adjust to being in America again; but now that I'm finally feeling rather normal I've resumed work on SRT. There's a bit of a problem, however - since I've been working on the project again, I've come to grow more and more frustrated with a certain aspect of the project. Scripting? Let me at it! Spriting? Sounds like fun! Designing tilesets? It's a blast! Plotting? I have a ball! But mapping?

Mapping drains me, and I've come to realize this more and more. When I look at a blank map, nothing at all leaps out at me as to how to fill it. Sure, I have a rough idea - a forest, for example, or a plain, or a crumbled city, or a nuclear wasteland (actually, that last one is pretty easy to map - there's not much there!). But the specifics just don't come to me. I've read all the tutorials and have practiced dozens of times - I even have a behind the scenes helper, and he's a godsend I don't know what I'd do without - but no matter what I do, I'm never completely happy with the results. I start off a map by making random squiggles to define contours of the land, and 95% of the time, I hate how what results looks. And with the 5% of the time where I do like the result; filling in the details is a tedious, frustrating experience. It's tedious because of how much mulling over I do before I place pretty much every tile that's part of defining an outline; and the arduous goal I set for myself by mapping forests by using six or seven different trees that overlap in at least a dozen ways doesn't help matters much (I can't help myself there, though - the trees are pretty much the only thing I DO like about my mapping ' ). Paths don't present themselves naturally to me; cliffs end up looking too straight and square...nothing ever looks perfect to me, and it makes me feel like a failure as a ROM modder, especially when I venture into the Map Rating Thread and see the absolute masterpieces on display there. Nothing that exhilarating to look at and play on could ever come from my own pathetic failure of an imagination. And I know that no matter how good the scripts or storyline or tilesets or whatever else I may include in
SRT are; if the maps are no good, no one will want to play the game.

To switch tactics a little: the following image is a map I finished the other day (it's new and has not been looked at by anyone besides myself prior to posting); the completely revised and redone version of Dapple Path, the first route in the game. I've made this route at least three times - once as a random little area without much consideration for mapping tutorials or else wise; the second time trying to imagine a "Nintendo map" as having been abandoned and allowed to overgrow (which was an ugly, terrible failure, from a playability and aesthetic standpoint), because I thought such an idea would make mapping an easier and smoother process for myself, and the third as...well...this thing. Is my heavy criticism of my ability justified, or is what I'm doing, as odd as it is, actually working, at least a little bit?



(The stairs are placeholders, to be substituted for something more "natural" looking in the future. I didn't bother to map the trees out where the player would not be able to see them, which explains the cutoff you can see in the image).

After that long introduction, I'm now ready to get to the meat of my post: the vote. Fans and visitors to this thread, what do you think I should do regarding this situation? I have three separate options in mind (one of which is rather radical), and I want YOU to decide SRT's future. It's my goal to make this game as good as I possibly can, and I can't do that without hearing what's on your mind. So without further ado, here's the options for the vote:

Option A: No shift in the status quo. I make the maps, get them critiqued, make the needed changes, and move on to the next map. Wash, rinse, repeat.
Pros: I learn mapping skills (whoohoo! Practice makes perfect, after all ). Hopefully, I also temper my perfectionist streak a bit, which would be a welcome blessing
Cons: Mapping is too frustrating and tedious to be much fun for me, so I very often find it a difficult task to muster the enthusiasm to actually sit down and do it. And when I do, I work at the speed of a snail on Dopamine. To put this into less words - you can consider yourselves duly blessed if you receive even a beta by 2011. I wouldn't have a lot of fun (at least at first - hopefully as my skills improved I'd grow to find it fun! ), and you'd the fans would need to have the patience of saints.

Option B: Outsource the mapping. Go to the Team forum and make a thread, which I'll refer to here as Team Pichu because I'm boring like that. This hypothetical Team Pichu thread would explain the nature of SRT's "region", the style needed for the maps (natural, and in a few key places, a sort of overgrown Nintendo style), and then discuss one particular idea for a map in a little more detail to convey what it is I want. Hopefully someone would come along and volunteer their services. I'd ask for examples of their work, and if they find they outclass me (not hard) they'll get the job for that particular map. They'd make the map using whatever ROM they like, I'd insert it into SRT and give it a little makeover (I won't ask anyone but myself to do those hellish trees!), and then hey presto! I'd have a good looking map I didn't have to design, and I'd be ready to post the details of the next map in the Team Pichu thread.
Pros: The mapping issue is taken completely out of my hands (whoohoo! No surprise, but I'd love that XD ). Speed shouldn't be much of an issue; and, conceivably multiple maps could be worked on by multiple people. I could actually start making real progress, instead of remaking the first few routes over and over again because I'm never content with my own work!
Cons: My preferred method of working is flying solo; so outsourcing the mapping would replace my prior issue with a new one: running a team thread (a prospect that's a little scary for me, honestly! ' ). No one could end up being interested with helping; which would put me right back where I started. People could be slow working on the maps, which would leave the speed issue.

Option C (the long one!): Change the way SRT is played so mapping (outside of towns) simply becomes a non-issue. This idea came to me in a bout of inspiration shortly after finishing that map above - what if I just went about things differently so all the stress and bother with those damn maps just went away? Towns would still be made using the Option A process, but routes, caves, and forests would become.....

Dungeons.

Imagine, if you will, a hybrid between rougelikes like, of course, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon; and a game like The Legend of Zelda for the NES. Everything but towns will be replaced by mazelike dungeons, just like you'd find in a roguelike. These dungeons would need to be mapped, of course, but for me a dungeon is a MUCH simpler prospect than a traditional route or cave or forest (I have experience with D&D dungeons and autoREALM as well, which makes it all the easier =D ). These dungeons would have traps (some of which could possibly be disarmed with those "rocks" you get at the end of battles - finally, a use for the money system!) and wild pokémon (Flash-born), and items scattered here and there, just like in PMD. But one of the main criticisms of PMD was the repetitive nature of the dungeons - all that really changed about them as you progressed in the plot was how many floors you had to trudge through. There was no variety, except for maybe the tiles used.

Here's where the Zelda inspiration comes into play. In The Legend of Zelda, there are a variety of Temples which are a bit like dungeons. The temples, each associated with a different element, all have a different look to them while they still follow a similar pattern. That's one area of inspiration - picture dungeons that are just one big ice puzzle! Or ones completely underwater, or that you have to Surf all the way through! Or one filled with ledges, or another where you go up and down cliffs to find your way out....but I digress. The more important area of inspiration is the puzzle-solving element. I've always loved puzzles and puzzle games, and I can see a lot of potential to have fun with this idea to help break up the monotony of the dungeon crawling. What if, when you found the exit, it took you not to another area of the dungeon or an exit, but to a room with some sort of puzzle in it that you had to solve before you could go to the next room? And not just things like strength puzzles - what if you had to solve riddles? Decipher a code? Go through a mini-maze? I'm even picturing ways to expand on the plot and setting using this gimmick, which could be a lot of fun.

I can hear you ask - without routes, how will we get around? Here's where I took a bit of inspiration from Final Fantasy's early days and Zelda II: have an overworld. SRT's overworld would be divided into six different maps, with each pair of maps representing a separate facet of Pirca's journey to confront the northern evil. Here's a mockup I did of PikpikForest (the first map), using HGSS map tiles (thanks to Pokémon-Diamond for the majority of those used here):


(Sorry for the size - I kept the image small so that it could be turned into a tilesest if need be)

How would this work, anyway? The red dot farthest to the left is the starting town. When you exit, you'll be taken to this overworld map. Simply walk along the white path to get to the next location. Small green dots are what I picture as being like the monsters on the overworld map in Super Mario Brothers 3. These dungeons will always be shorter than the "main" ones, and they'll be short on puzzles and traps. Primarily, their purpose is to give you a place to battle pokémon. Wild ones will spawn, of course, but the highlight of these areas is SRT's version of a Trainer battle - a "swarm." Step on a tile and suddenly be confronted by a message: "It's a Flash-born swarm!" - and bam, you have some monsters to fight and get EXP and Rocks from. Even if I use Option A or B, the idea of Swarms will remain because I realized early on that if the only things to fight are occasional plot-advancing baddies and wild pokémon you can run away from, characters being under-leveled could be a big problem later in the game. Adding in a plethora of battles you can't run away from will help insure you don't bump into a Level 50 foe - at level 30. Anyway, to continue, all the red squares represent towns, and the large green squares represent "actual" dungeons - these will focus less on battles (though there will be a few Swarm traps, as well as spawning wild pokémon) and more on progressing and problem solving. Flags and warp scripts are pretty much how I imagine the overworld will work in game.

When you reach the last square or dot on a map, when you exit it you will spawn on the next map, filled with more dots and squares for your amusement. This game is more linear and you don't have much reason to backtrack once you reach a new map - but in the few times the plot requires it, the game will warp you there and back safe and sound.

Pros: It's a gimmick I've never seen done in a ROM mod before. It eliminates most of the map worry (huzzah!) while still letting me practice on towns, and I get to keep 99% creative control over the proceedings, rather than have to resort to outsourcing. Puzzles are fun. Dungeons are easy to map. In short, I'd have more fun which would make me happier. You'll find yourself asking, "Is this really Pokémon?" (haha.)
Cons: You'll find yourself asking, "Is this really Pokémon?" It might be TOO different. Dungeons could get boring or repetitive despite my best efforts. The fact it's not traditional could be a problem - a big problem. I might find myself short an idea for a dungeon or puzzle. Introducing an overworld gimmick could be totally going against the grain - in a bad way.

So please vote, my fans and visitors! Option A, B, or C? Also, tell me why you picked what you did in your response. I need all the feedback you guys can give so I know how to proceed with my work - when I finally finish SRT, I want it to be great, though I gotta tell myself it'll never, ever be perfect ("perfect" is best left to the guys who know ASM XD). So.....what do you think?

Option A is the best bet for nostalgia's sake, but I think you should play with Option C. Everything about this hack is already unique and different, why not the gamestyle? It would be something I've never seen before in a hack, and it would be totally amazing and different to play through. Think of the possibilities you would have for backtracking and revisiting old areas! It would be like LoZ... but Pokemon! Play with Option C and see if it really is easier and more enjoyable. If it is, viola! Game made, stress relieved, fans happy.

I'd say give Option C a go. It sounds really unique, and if it produces something new and fun that you'd really enjoy making, why not? And if it doesn't... Well, you can always try something else.

0_0 no wounder you don't like mapping you have a lot of trees! i know this is supposed to be a natural looking hack but in real forests there are a lot of the same type of trees together and every once in a while theres a difference.

Anyway my vote goes for A because i would rather see simple maps than dungeons and if necessary go with B

Edit: btw i think the map you posted looks good...

Nice, I am just wondering, have you made a system so for when a wild/trainer/gym leader batlles you (because your a pichu) that when the battle starts you pichu saying something but then the pichu sends out a pichu or have you made it the pichu says something starting the battle and then it just has fight run pokemon bag?
ETA: Sorry I didn't see you resolved the question already but I'd like to point out I can beta test for you

Why not try option C? If you don't like it, then option A, I guess. You're not that bad. In my opinion, your map that you posted is actually pretty good.

Either way, if the outcome is fun, then I don't see why you shouldn't try it. Both ways do indeed sound like fun to me, and I guess it's all just what you'll have more fun with.

I dislike option A because it would mean that you are not having fun while making SRT.

Option C definitely sounds like the best choice.

I love the idea of Zelda-type dungeons because it will give the players a nice challenge. You shouldn't be worried about it being too different from the standard Pokémon formula because it will only make SRT stand out.

Although I can understand that it would be quite a pain to have to come up with so many unique dungeons and puzzles.

Also, from the way you described it, you seem to have put a lot of thought into option C already.

I don't know why you really made it vote--it looks to me like you already picked option C, you seem so excited about it :D

But I would go A or B. One of the main reasons I like Pokemon so much is that it gets away from all that repetitive dungeon stuff and expands more into an open-world system. In the end, I choose A...because once you do figure out mapping, this game will really take off!

Alas, it is true I am excited about C - it's what I wanted to do the minute the idea came to me, but common sense told me "don't do anything that drastic without getting opinions, first!" No matter how much I may fancy an idea, I wouldn't want to implement something so radical if people would hate it. And the split of opinion among the voters isn't helping much either - some of you guys are vouching for C, others want me to stick with A or B and wouldn't like a dungeon style system. It leaves me even more at a loss as for what to do!

Maybe what I should do is think out of the box and figure out some way to compromise? I'm thinking maybe keeping the overworld and the idea of small dungeons, but have more traditional routes for the "green squares." Or maybe make dungeon like routes, or route like dungeons (if that makes sense)....I'll have to mull the ideas over in my head, maybe do some drawings to straighten everything out. I know I can't please everybody, but I want to do the best darn job I can to make as many people as possible satisfied. '

I should have some time tomorrow, and I will try and get to work on those mentioned drawings (rather than making drastic changes to the ROM that would be frustrating to have to undo if it turns out I wouldn't be using them!), so keep an eye out for them
