    I love the mapping style, and can't wait to see it in the updated graphics you mentioned.

    While I can respect the importance of not revealing all major details of a game at once, I feel that it could probably help to at least list what features you intend for the game overall.

      Where I am from (hometown not San Diego), you actually see mobile homes like this parked in the woods off trails selling berries and other gathered goods, and they do have boxes outside of the camper, generally with more goods to sell that are stocked in a box which they take out during the day for more space in their camper.

      So yes, those are boxes

        thats a really cool thing to add, I like that you added a real world thing into your game, its pretty neat
        so, is that a trailer that sells random goods then?

        Not necessarily random. There is a guy who sells berries, apricorns and a few other goods.



        MENU WIP

        For those who are interested in what is currently going on, and have not already swung by the screenshot showcase, it is time for a peek at the current development!



        This is currently a work in progress, and is subject to change. I am liking how it is coming along.

        What do YOU FOLKS think?

          Really awesome interface, man!
          Which position is the first in the party though?
          Maybe you should an ornament or something to signify which slot is the first one?

          Looking forward to more! :D

          First in the party is at the top. When you open the menu, it will always be the initially highlighted option.

          This is also not necessarily the party menu.

          Battle!


          I am still unsure about the battle buttons, but they will be something like that :D. I may change them, I may leave them.

            hexagons for the win man - although to be fair, they arent circular in shade as they usually are, but they are hexegonical nonetheless! Its a cool style you're keeping fluent throughout your game so far, most notably the way its tiled like that, anyway its cool, I like it, and keep it up!

              Without knowing too much of the backstory (so feel free to disregard this!), I can't help feeling, I guess, disappointed? that you've swapped out what sounds like a pretty interesting and different player character for a very standard one. especially when you've taken such great pains to create what sounds like a very plot-driven game, which is exactly the kind of game where interesting player characters really thrive.

              just my 2 cents!

              also (although I'm sure you hear this all the time) your sprites are gorgeous and your mapping is really quality! I really like the way your route 1 looks :)

              Well, sometimes it is good to go back to the basics.

              While a detailed character is great for story telling, it is not great for allowing a general audience to truly assume the role. It is more about immersion that it is a creative character. A player with a more broad and general story or theme targets a wider audience in general and this was primarily done because the game offers more of an adventure style of play. People like to feel like they are playing their own character, not your version of their character. This is why it reverted back to Skyler.

              The Battle Rages On!

              Currently waiting on Pokemon Essentials V.13 before progress continues but here is a little spoiler for now...

              Implementing the early stages of the updated battle system and style for Pillars, with an updated screen resolution as well! As you can see, Zygarde is just SHAKING with excitement, and this is not even the half of it!

                  The Works

                  Venom12 and I have been hammering out this bit of the interface lately and I figured it was time to share it as it is coming together. A big shout out to Luka S.J who had helped provide the direction of the frame work. It was an idea I proposed and probably would not have gone with if it was not for his direction.

                  This is a sample of the Red option. The player will be able to select from a variety of colors such as Black, White, Blue, Orange, Pink, Purple, Green, Yellow, and some other specialty colors as well.



                  You may also notice that there is a Full Restore item bound as well. Potions as well as a few other non-key items will be able to be registered for quick access through your journey.

                  I hope you all like this little bit of eye candy. The next update is going to be going over some of the item changes, as well as spoiling some of the new items that come with those changes!

                  Stay tuned.

                    Now that is a good-looking frame.
                    You guys really managed to pull it off!
                    Great work!

                    The bold text looks a little weird though. Bad scaling of the font, by the game?

                      Now that looks really good! Good job on the interface.
                      Not really a big fan of speech bubble graphics but other than that everything seems spot on!

                      The bold font has been doing that for me in Essentials regardless of the font and size. Maruno pointed it out the other day and I am honestly not sure why it is doing that as of right now. It will hopefully be worked out before the release. For now I am just ignoring it.

                        I think that's because of the resize factor. If I'm not mistaken, the font when bold is an odd number of pixels wide, which the 0.5 resize factor doesn't like. Test the game under 2*2 px resolution - I bet the font won't be distorted then. Nothing you can really do about it though :/ I think.

                        Other than that...looks cool man

                        For some reason I did not think about that despite knowing that it could be a cause. I guess I am use to RMXP just making it blurry as it does with tiles so it did not cross my mind. Thanks man, I will take a peek at that. If I recall, it was even doing it at a 400 x 240 res though XD I will take a peek when I am home.
