    Define Incenses in PBS, just one field with incense name, like "Incense=SEAINCENSE" for Marill or Azurill case.

    A PBS for berries data and pokémon forms.

    This: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=310911

    Maybe something for listing/searching all the itemballs and hiddenitem in entire maps/game.

    I would like to see the 6th gen abilities and moves added, regardless of whether or not 6th gen pokemon are in essentials or not. The base moves still seem pretty important in my opinion as they can be applied to any pokemon.

      Not sure if this has been asked but: Maybe a search box/making the editor a tad bit faster?
      Also... I have an idea of how maybe making moves/abilities and their effects could work in a program idea. SO
      For moves: It's be a sentence basically saying:: "This move, (type in name) is classified as (name, sprite to go along with it) and it has (power) power and (accuracy) accuracy. It is a (type) type that has (priority, set to 0 for regular priority, -1 or more for negative priority) priority, can boost/debuff (choose stat from a pop up box) (by how many levels, add a - for negative levels) for you with a percentage of (percentage) and can boost/debuff (choose stat again) (by how many levels) for the foe with a percentage of (Percent) as well as giving the status, (status, there is a blank status) to (foe, you, both) with a percentage of (%). It may also have misc effects forgotten, listed here (protect ((side effect upon hitting)), breaks protect, makes a ((turn)) boost of a stat ((level)), adds protection against ((status/debuff)), breaks protection against ((status/debuff)), gives a gradual ((stat including hp)) by ((amount)) with the condition of ((weather/nothing/around a certain type foe)))."

      For Abilities: Another sentence being:: "This ability, (name) can (damage the foe/status the foe/heal you/give a boost/ give the foe a boost/ makes you attack only ((number)) turns in a row/ makes a certain type immune ((type))/ resistance for a type ((type))/ weakness to a type ((type))) with the percentage of (%) and only int he conditions of (weather ((weather))/ when being hit ((type))/ hitting ((type/just in general)) when near a partner) to the (you/enemy/all enemies/your ally/ all allies)."

      Kthxbai!

        At PBS, besides berries and forms, put also one for the ribbons, and put each sprite in a separate file in a separate folder (like footprints). It's strage that these lastest additions doesn't use PBS files. Put also a mode that you can see the ribbons description at status screen and can scroll ribbons (vital in cases that you have more than 12 ribbons).

        at types PBS, put a field for setting status conditions immunities (like Steel is poison immune).

        When holding ctrl allows to fly for non-visited cities at debug mode.

        Maybe this is irrelevant: Transform the "Set internal flag" to "Toggle internal flag".

        Maybe if it is possible, fix the map warping from the debug menu. I cannot be the only one who cannot stand warping onto a patch of trees and having to re-warp. Perhaps have it check the passage and terrain flag of the tile it is warping you to or something.

          I agree that it is annoying that it is random which tile you end up on, but FYI, if you hold down CTRL while walking, you have "walk-through-walls". Basically, you can walk through the trees.

            All RPG Makers allow you to walk on anything while holding down CTRL if you're playing through the editor. There's no need to re-warp.

              It tries 100 times to find a walkable tile to transfer you to. If it can't, then it'll choose just any random tile. This isn't a big deal, what with the walk-through-anything skills.

                I had an idea for a new feature.
                Terrain-tag creator, for the Editor.

                Basically, a way to make new, custom, terrain-tags, for things like different kinds of grass or waters.
                I'm not especially good at scripting and I've been trying to add a new "Tall Grass"-terrain to use for Flower Patches, like in Pokémon X and Y.

                However, noob as I am, I am only able to create the encounter method, but no way to proc it.
                In other words, I can't create a "tall grass"-tile which only generates the "flower"-encounter, so to speak.

                I think this is a feature lots of people could take advantage of, being able to use more than just the "Tall Grass" and "Very Tall Grass" tiles to generate wild battles.

                For example, someone might want to make a shallow water tile where wild battles occur, similar to Tall Grass, or like in my case, flower patches.

                  That's simply not feasible. Terrain tags can do a wide variety of things, from make the player slide around to jump over them to have encounters to surf/dive to give the player soot. It's impractical to try to come up with some more automated way of doing it.

                  There's a terrain tag editor already, where you can give any tile any terrain tag you want. Just pick a number that isn't otherwise used, and then make a script for its effect by mimicking the existing terrain tag effects. As I said, this script could do anything, which means it can't be "templated".

                    Fair enough. My problem is my inability to properly script, and the fact that I do not know where the terrain tag effect scripts are.

                      I know mini-games are a low priority (as they kind of should be considering that other functions are more important), but I think it'd be neat to see an updated edition of the surfing mini-game from Pokemon Yellow. Perhaps with support for people to make additional Pokemon that can use the game fairly easily.

                        I think nice addon would be Pokemon World Tournament known from Pokemon Black 2 and white 2.

                        Saving Raven and I were talking about the 3rd Gen contests, seems like a trivial feature, but a nice one for players for sure. Contests are a constant feature in the official games, and 3rd Gen contests were the most interesting ones.

                        That and a World Tournament (as Venom suggested), which could allow players more of a competitive battle scene without having to figure out multi-player battles.

                          I think the only thing the options menu is lacking is a volume slider. I tried to make one but failed miserably. It doesn't need to be something overly complex, just a way to adjust the master volume (BGM, SE etc.).

                          i really should start learning ruby

                            (Savordez you wouldn't happen to be Gigabowser on RMN, are you? The link to that game gave it away. )

                            I'm not even sure if I wanted to post in this thread, but... Here it goes.
                            1. Is there a way to speed up the scrolling speed of the UI in the Essentials Editor? If so, that would make debugging and doing all the chores you need to do through that editor much LESS tedious. It's especially worse with setting encounters, because for absolutely EVERY field I have to scroll down walls of text to find the Pokemon I want to input.
                            2. Joypad support. It is something that is inherent in RMXP but Essentials removed it with its control script for some reason. Adding this back in will make any PC gamer happy.
                            3. I think earlier versions of Essentials supported fullscreen options. I would like to see a return to this, because right now hittin alt+f4 barely changes the resolution and makes things look hideous. It doesn't have to be a forced feature, either, just something that can be toggled so that the joes that want to make their DS-styled games can do so.

                            That is all.

                              Yes. I'm going to post a topic here too once I'll be able to make links.

                              I've already received multiple "♥♥♥♥ you"s from some guys because my game doesn't have a volume slider. lol

                                I'm not even sure if I wanted to post in this thread, but... Here it goes.
                                1. Is there a way to speed up the scrolling speed of the UI in the Essentials Editor? If so, that would make debugging and doing all the chores you need to do through that editor much LESS tedious. It's especially worse with setting encounters, because for absolutely EVERY field I have to scroll down walls of text to find the Pokemon I want to input.
                                2. Joypad support. It is something that is inherent in RMXP but Essentials removed it with its control script for some reason. Adding this back in will make any PC gamer happy.
                                3. I think earlier versions of Essentials supported fullscreen options. I would like to see a return to this, because right now hittin alt+f4 barely changes the resolution and makes things look hideous. It doesn't have to be a forced feature, either, just something that can be toggled so that the joes that want to make their DS-styled games can do so.

                                That is all.
                                1. Page Up and Page Down are your friends.
                                2. It wouldn't make me happy. I don't use a joypad.
                                3. Nah. The large screen size is good enough.

                                    I think that having a script put in that allowed the player to adjust the frame rate would be an AWESOME addition. Pokemon Essentials has this in its options and its a beautiful thing. I still can't find anywhere to get a script for my game.

                                      2. I agree

                                      3. Try medium screen size and use Alt+Enter. Since Essentials has no more border, the image get a little misaligned. Besides this, the large size do the job well.

                                      This may mess with the game flow, so I prefer to this feature remains as an add-on.

                                          As unfortunate as it is, RMXP doesn't support Gifs. They would have to be a png.

                                            I had working/animating trainer GIFs in Blue Chrome. See? It's definitely doable.
