Sorry for not posting in what seems like forever, but I took a Christmas haitus and January brought complete pademonium with it. I'm back now - and ready to get things done. :cer_smile:

It has good graphics, like much of fakemons too.
Change the mini sprite. And the Pokemon Center and Mart, they do not match the other tiles.
Just some suggestions
Good luck! I hope to see more updates.

Mini-sprite is only temporary. All other tiles are being updated also.

Hopefully we can find one soon.

I can be off-topic too.

No, your map is more professional coherent in my opinion. Mine is more geographically accurate because I know the region inside out. Yours has more love. :cer_wink:

Actually the phrase "Sands of Time" was probably first made by Socrates in Ancient Greece and therefore predates Prince of Persia by quite some time. It refers to the finite existance of all things in our Universe. It's like "Picture Perfect" and "Case Closed"; they are used as the titles of video games but don't actually originate from the video game creators themselves.

Anyways, I can't wait to get Absyl.
Just two days and this thread would be dead...
My projects never die, don't you worry. :cer_wink:



Well the Vicitalis Dex has been finalised to include c. 320 species of Pokemon (a mixture of official and fakemon). Examples of official Pokemon to be found in the region are:

I'm not going to publish a full Pokedex because, hey, surprises are fun.

The Region design has been completely finalised. I've tweaked a bit and so I'll update the map at some point (right now I'm focused on mapping to routes/settlements etc.). The changes are mainly just names; Radiant City now goes by LaCaprice City and Sactuary Town now goes by Al-Akhdar Town.

The badges have been made for the region's gyms. The designs are by me (The Cynic/vivalaevolution) and PokemonMasta. They were sprited, quite brilliantly, by Sap-Green.

1. Cure Badge - Eletha - Ode Town
2. Heart Badge - Valentino - LaCaprice City
3. Piste Badge - Rhona - Everlanche City
4. Labyrinth Badge - Arnott - Drygulch City
5. Transducer Badge - Buzz - Neonbright City
6. Papillon Badge - Lindsey - Tropicao City
7. Fate Badge - Laquetta - Murkreek Town
8. ??? Badge - ??? - Aeonopolis City [I said I liked secrets]

Now I need to reach out to the folks of Pokecommunity and ask:


We already have all the concepts we need for gym leaders/fakemon/trainers/towns but we need talented pixel-artists. I can only go so far on my own. All work will off-course be credited.

Anyway, I'm currently re-mapping all of the Southern Province of the region with better tiles and layouts so expect some juicy screenies in the not-too-distant future.

I'd just like to thank everyone who's supported/contributed to this project since it started last year as a fledgling hack over in the Scrapbox. I'll aim not to disapoint.

Just before I go, here are the starters. Enjoy!
