= NOTICE: \v\h01! The first release is out! Download it either at the end of this post or the first post of the third page!
Pokemon Orchid


.:Title:.
Pokemon Orchid

.:Hack of:.


Firered


.:Storyline:.
You are a young Trainer starting your journey in a peninsula called Tide Town. You get your first Pokemon and are off on your quest. Along the way, you find you face many rivals and challenges, the infamous Team Rocket being one of them. Can you stop this threat and become a full-fledged Pokemon Master? How many lives will you affect along the way? And what is this green forest Pokemon that's being pursued? Play and find out!

.:Features:.
New Region
New Storyline
Johto Starters
New Heros
New and Various Rivals
New Gym Leaders
My Little Green Time-Traveling Friend Catchable!
...And much, much more!

.:Glitches in Current release:.
No! Not my Hall of Fame!
When I say "fixed" it means for the next release, not the current one.
  • You can jump into the snowbanks under the trees in Chilly Canyon. *fixed*
  • Blossom gives you Rock Tomb instead of Bullet Seed. *fixed*
  • Some people's text is cut off. *fixed*
  • Major Glitch! Please read! Do not open the menu in Hailstone City. It will cause the game to freeze and you may lose data. Save when you enter to minimize your risk of losing data.
  • When using an Escape Rope in Whistlewind Woods, you end up in front of the Timber Town Mart instead of in front of the forest.
  • Tide Town's an Island instead of a peninsula. *fixed*
  • There's a Rocket in the middle of nowhere near the Pokemon Center in Tropican City. *fixed*
  • After you defeat the Rocket Admin in the Tropican Jungle Safari Zone, a man appears inside the building you used to enter it. He won't talk to you. *fixed*



.:Screenshots:.
Beware, screenshots are my thing...
Tide Town:

Tropican City:

Chilly Canyon:

Timber Town:

Whistlewind Woods:

Oasis City:

.:Credits:.
-Coronis for a Caterpie overworld.

.:Banners:.

First Post =P

Anyways, Looks Promising, The overworld of the main hero may annoy me after some time, but eh, that's just me ^.~

Is that the tileset you will stay with the entire time, or will u probably change it? (Just curious =P)

I know that minor tileset changes will be necessary somewhere down the line but I'm trying to stay closer to Firered's tiles and palletes for now. However, I did take the liberty of changing the Pokemon Center and Mart's roof tiles. Taking a closer look at one of the screenshots on the first post will reveal that. :P
-----------
I think I'll give everyone a teaser of the third town. It's my favorite so far and took a little while to map. Better yet, the roof tile changes are more visible. I tried to give it a more D/P look while still keeping the GBA feel.



Yep, that's Hailstone City. Do ya like it?

Looks good.

The though of a Jungle, instead of a Forest, is intriguing. I haven't seen that before.

But I don't get out much, so that just might be me.

Oh wow, 3 towns done in an hour and a half... If you keep up at this pace, you'll be the fastest hacker ever!

Seriously though, I like it a lot. Is it going to feature complex (zel-like) scripts? I hear that's the hardest thing in the world for some [most] people. Well, keep it up (maybe you'll update in another hour or two XD), and try to get those nice snow effects working for Hailstone. You know, like modified soot in Ruby, something like that, yeah. From the looks of things, it's also shaping out to be a grammatically correct hack. Nice.

PS: I like your PorygonHacks banner. Very stylish, I must say!

Actually Sakura, I've been working on this hack for a couple of weeks now. I was getting it ready to be presented here. I have the three snowflakes weather effect going on in Hailstone. I just didn't want it to snow all the time, it didn't look right to me. I'm sooo glad you noticed how I used correct grammar! I'm a grammar freak when it comes to something important!

Thank you!

I need to script some relatively important events that I'll need some help with so you'll probably be seeing me in the Script Requests thread. I actually only have to map Quadrant 1 of the 4 Quadrant Tropican Jungle Safari Zone and a forest and I have all the maps for the beta! My Safari Zone'll be about... Let's see... 4 TIMES the size of Hoenn's. After the major letdown I'll call the Great Marsh failure (Nintendo I'm talking to you!) we need a good Safari Zone!

Hehe, sorry for jumping to conclusions. A steady work speed is usually better than a sporadic one, I always say.

UGH, Great Marsh.
YAY, Safari Zone!
I think that just about wraps it up. :D

But; I like hailstone town

Wow! I've been getting alot of support!

Anyway, I just got home from work so I haven't gotten much done since I posted last. Hopefully, I'll have plenty of time tomorrow to map and script. Eventually I'll tie up the loose ends, beta test, and release a hopefully bug-free beta to you guys! Depending on alot of things, it could happen this week or maybe the end of the month. I'm really not sure, guessing release dates has never been my thing!

Thank you to everyone for your comments, especially about Hailstone City. You'll be able to like the whole thing when the beta comes out. Oh and Zach805, those are Firered's Safari Zone trees, I decided to make a tropical town, I needed tropical trees.

Well, I've gotta go. I'll map and attempt to script the two major events I plan for the first beta. I even have a little sprite surprise planned for y'all! See ya!

Nope. I really don't know how to music hack to tell you the truth. I've heard that Fr/Lg has all the R/S songs in it so I'm hoping to run into them along the way.

Like I said before, minor tileset changes are always needed, but I want to stay close to Firered's tilesets for now. Mini? You mean the overworld? I might change them more, we'll see.

Well, I just got up so, back to hacking!

looks promising.
I like the diversity in climate (normal trees, rain forest trees, wintery tileset)

I've made some progress on the Team Rocket event I have planned but I haven't got a reply to the question I posted in the Script Help thread. I can't do anything more today 'cause I'm going somewhere, but I did map Quadrant 1 of the Tropican Safari! I plan to map a forest used for later in the beta and an extra route I should've put in in the first place! Well, last day of school was today so now I can focus more on the hack. Ciao!

P.S. I love the banner. I've already sent you a PM about it Hiro Scout.
