    [CENTER]Pokémon Shiny Diamond
    Original idea by KingSnivy

    Introduction:
    Hi! i am KingSnivy. that's my 2nd game. Pokemon Shiny Diamond, My last attempt was Pokemon Bolting Yellow. But That's much better, i don't use Bolting Yellow anymore cause of tilesets.
    Information about why this page is here:
    Spoiler:
    I used to put Shiny Diamond's thread at the Showcase but Cilebra didn't approve the thread.

    Story:
    WARNING: 2 STORIES!
    Story 1:
    Spoiler:
    One day at the Sinnoh Region, the people felt scared cause of something strange, more than strange. I tell you what ? Okay! Team Galactic/Galaxy controlled Dialga, and Team Rocket controlled Palkia, and still destroying (not the whole sinnoh) They destroyed some cities and some towns. And actually Sandgem, so the people (Lucas/Dawn and Prof. Rowan) have moved into the Ueno region, that is full of joy, safely. So Team Rocket and Team Galactic/Galaxy heard that Lucas/Dawn moved to the Ueno region, so they moved there too. And trying to destroy them and Rule the region, and the only key to stop it is to destroy Dialga/Palkia/Giratina.


    Story 2:
    Spoiler:
    Your mother heard the news, so she called you, and she decided to move to a new region to be safe. and the people heard the news, too. The News: Sinnoh region is being destroyed soon, so move to an another region. and some people didn't hear the news, and Team Rocket destroyed the camera to make everybody die. Team Galaxy/Galactic planned to rule the whole region of Sinnoh. Stop Team Rocket and Galaxy/Galactic of destroying/ruling Sinnoh.

        I'll give you a few suggestions:

        1. Try to use one style of tiles. At the moment you're using tiles from FireRed/Leafgreen, Platinum and Alacus (Custom).

        2. Try filling up your maps with random trees or flowers etc.
        That way, it will be less boring for the player to look at it.

        3. Try to make a nice, 100% custom titlescreen instead of a 50% custom titlescreen


        Hope I helped.

          1. I don't want to chage tiles, but i will make Platinum FRLG. and.. Alacus? That is a hack/fangame maybe?

          2. I am doing the trees/flowers.

          3. Uh, i was about to make a 100% custom tilescreen, i can't erase

            He means Alucus, the person who made some of the tiles you are using. And also he doesn't mean like the tiles, he's just saying that the game looks kinda shoddy with how you've mixed different styles instead of using 1 stlye. For instance just having the Gen 4 indoor and outdoor tiles not mixing them with other Gen's. But now time for my view on your game.
            What I can see from your screenshots is that you've rushed the game to get some visuals out. There is bad grammar in the sentences such as words having a capital letter when not needed and words needing one. The mapping seems kind of poor but you can improve on that by adding a few details to the maps such as flowers, paths more tree's, which, on the next note of mapping is that maps need to have a boarder around them 7 tiles in width to stop the player from going to the edge of them and seeing the black around it, that way it will look more tidy.

            EDIT:
            Reading your thread you forgot to put tile credits to Alistair and Alucas.

              Hmm... Story needs a lot of work, mapping needs a lot of work, features are nothing but whats already there, and overall this project needs to be improved in concept and skill of the creator/s by a lot.

              A lot of the problems seem to be at basic levels, perhaps improving your skills at storytelling, storymaking, mapping, spriting, and others would be welcome before you delve into making a game.

                Ok, heres what i think, and you should do what i do Kingshivy, when your criticizing someones games,
                1. Credits, your not crediting the people you ripped the tiles off from..
                2. Grammar, very poor most of it doesn't make sense.
                3. Mapping, everything is very wide open, theres not much trees, flowers etc. For some help, look at some other maps gamefreak have designed, and maybe follow the way they map there maps out, of course not 100% copy but you know what i mean.
                4. Story, needs a lot of workin on but im sure it will be developed more by you.
                5. Tiles, they looking horrible, the way you have mixed em around like that, from gen 3 to gen 4.
                6. How can you BETa test your own game?
                7. Name: first of all your starting screen, says diamond not shiny diamond, and i suggest changing that name, not really catchy.

                Overall, your doing good, just try follow what people say, read up and follow lots of tutorials and you'll improve!

                  The story needs serious improvement as at the moment, it makes very little sense -- dialga and palkia destroy Sinnoh so everyone moves to a new region? lolwhat. Was that just a way of being able to use the DPPt tiles / sprites and characters but still being able to make a new region? Either way, you need more of an original story.

                  As other people have already said, you need to stop using different sets of tiles such as custom, FRLG, DPPt. Pick ONE style and stick to it.

                  I think the project needs more originallity to make it appealing.

                      Typical you blanked out what people said again. He never said overworlds... He said tilesets. Two different things. And he means you spelling and punctuaction is quite bad where you've put i instead of making it a capital letter like this 'I'.

                        Please tell me how this makes sense, "Today, i maybe get some new pokemon.and if i got them, i will work with them!"
                        What it should say:
                        "Today, i might catch a new Pokemon, and if i catch it i will train it!"

                        You updated story? Wow you added to new words, nice job.
                        And thats a hack mate, this is a Game developed by you, hacks are limited, but you should edit everything, to make it your game.

                                Do you honestly not understand what people have been telling you, or are you trolling?

                                  im pretty sure he's from another country, if not, then hes probably eight years old, like seriously, he's not even listening to what people say.

                                  you need to start understanding people better, also i agree with everyone else, the mixing tiles, looks terrible, and the story needs major improvement.

For instance just having the Gen 4 indoor and outdoor tiles not mixing them with other Gen's. But now time for my view on your game.
                                    What I can see from your screenshots is that you've rushed the game to get some visuals out. There is bad grammar in the sentences such as words having a capital letter when not needed and words needing one. The mapping seems kind of poor but you can improve on that by adding a few details to the maps such as flowers, paths more tree's, which, on the next note of mapping is that maps need to have a boarder around them 7 tiles in width to stop the player from going to the edge of them and seeing the black around it, that way it will look more tidy.

                                    EDIT:
                                    Reading your thread you forgot to put tile credits to Alistair and Alucas.
                                    I don't use Alucas' tiles.

                                          Snivy, unless you want to get infracted, just credit the people whose tiles you're using.

                                          Also, your story excerpt doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Badder than before? Destroyed? What? I don't understand.

                                            The tiles were made by Alucus, and the RMXP format tilesets were made by neo-spriteman.

                                              Badder: More bad than before cause of something strange
                                              Destroyed: Uhh.. that meaning is for 1-year old. Uhh... They Destroy Twinleaf Town.
                                              No. That's not what I meant. Your plot doesn't make any logical sense. Read it and rewrite it so it actually means something. For instance, who destroyed Twinleaf? The dragons? Team Galactic? Both of them? "Starting by the dark day", "were not knowing" aren't English. Just, yeah. Please.

                                              And, for the record, "badder" isn't a word. You mean "worse".

                                                    I think you need to stop pretending that you "made the tiles". You didn't. It's obvious to everyone here that you have just stolen a bunch of tiles from various people who have already been mentioned. I seriously suggest you learn how to credit people for their work.
