    he ment the world map, I think... But he has a point

        RPG Maker XP. Most games here are made with it.

            If you want the full version, then yes you will need to buy it (but there are other ways to get the full version).

              Update:
              Three new screens!

              The new south east of the yet to be named home town. Wandering Pokémon will be a big feature in XENOTIME, but you won't be able to battle them. The tents (credit to Death Strike) are a market where you'll be able to buy lots of Pokémon products not available in the normal marts.


              And here's the inside of one of the two market tents. This is still being worked on. Credit to Alucus for the tiles. The person won't normally say that, it's just for a joke xD. What do you think of the tiles and their placement?


              A little story sequence. The Oak sprite is a place holder and should be replaced by Professor Larcoon's soon, if I get a spriter. Credit to Alucus again.

              Update on demo:
              The demo is really coming along very fast now, I've got the whole first town mapped finished. Over all about 60% of the way there now. The demo will include the first four towns if you didn't know.

              And now to the endless replies...

              @Shun: Thanks. If the trees were less clumped together then you would be able to walk through them, which obviously wouldn't be ideal.

              @Amore: Piazza is quite good, but sounds too much like pizza. The rest don't fit. Keep the suggestions coming in.

              @Alliehj: That's just to make the southern house not look out of place. I've improved that part a lot now as you see in the update above. Thanks and great.

              @Manio: Thank you. The more supporters the better.

              @thelaytonmobile: I don't get it...
              Thanks, I actually did it that way because I'm not good at the randomness of making maps. Some routes will be based on actuall areas, you'll see in a future update. If you mean region maps, then we don't actually need more. If you mean area ones, then we do. VM me if so.

              @shadowtogepi: It's ok, but they're palms, not bushes!

              @Fierce Deity H: Sand Palm sounds especially good, the best idea yet. I'll think about it.

              @Yuzuki: I've tried really hard to get all of the maps great, thanks. We will!

              @KingCharizard: I'll be changing that soon, I just can't find a good/any water auto tile/s.

              @Iyo: Thanks. It's pikarich who mainly does the story, I'll get him to VM you. Not long now!

              @Wichu: I know what you mean about the lack of diversions. Just north of the home town in real life there's actually a very interesting location, that'll be included. I'll update with info on it some time between now and the demos release. There are also a lot of other small things I want to add all over the map.

              @Paddy-Pictures: Thanks, we try ;) Route's answered your question. No problem, it's better than most English people on here xD.

              @KingCharizard: Strange coincidence.

                  I may have mentioned it earlier in this thread (I can't really remember), but I think you really need to reduce the opacity of the clouds. The effect is totally awesome, but in that screenshot the cloud is way too dark :3

                  And with Wichu's comment, I think what he meant was that the map is too singular and linear, in the sense that you've got no routes connecting multiple towns. In its present form, you can almost instantly tell which town you start and end at. If you look, at say, the map of Kanto...



                  ... you can see that its much more realistic, in the sense that almost every town is connected somehow.

                  But anyway, these are all minor complaints; I really love it so far ^^,

                  Other than that, looks pretty awesome ^^,

                    I know they are palm trees, but, oh well.
                    I just want to have a new idea of mine used in someone elses game.

                      Nice update! Lovin the screens.
                      As for my contest, I don't really like any of the suggestions, 'cept for Sand Palm, so keep the suggestions coming guys. I'll pick a winner soon. Hopefully we'll have regular contests to decide stuff. We can't do it all ourselves!

                          It's Peeky, but I'm second-in-command and head of storyline. What I meant was, we need all the help we can get from you guys!

                                Well, this thread has given me a mixed opinion. On the one hand, it looks like some attempts were made to provide a quality, fun game for us to enjoy. On the other, it appears that some of those attempts were failures. While you do use well made tilesets adapted from the DS games, and several well-designed custom images, there are occasional problems. For example, many of the custom tiles are fully 2D, and would appear much better in a GBA setting than alongside tiles from Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Add to that the fact that you're overdoing things by including more regions than you need to, and you have a potentially difficult time ahead of you, building the game.

                                On the other hand, it looks like some real thought went into this game, which is a rarity with RMXP games these days. It also looks like you have put a lot of work into the game, and that quite a bit of that work has payed off.

                                All in all, good job. There are areas where the game looks like it could be improved, but it also looks like it will provide a unique, enjoyable experience, when it is completed.

                                    Iono, Strato, Meso and Tropo aren't really what I would think, however, aurora town might work, if you have something like a suicune shrine, or suicune lives in the water to the south, or something like that

                                      Yeah, Aurora was the only one Peeky liked. It's the current leader, please submit your entries by, hmm, let's say 9pm on Easter Sunday please. We're still open to suggestions, so please give ideas. Winner is that name and possibly a role in the game. I'm gonna work on the gym leaders' 'mon.

                                        i'd say keep aurora, but give a legend about suicune in the town. I have posted ideas, and none of mine work, so auroras the one i'm backing

                                        Also, what are the gym leaders types? I would like to know.

                                        Update:
                                        Revamped all screens!




                                        That's about two months work there. Hover over each to get info. I've taken Mrchewy's advice and changed the opacity of the clouds quite a bit. He's right, they look much better now.

                                        Map:

                                        I've taken some of Wichu's advice on the map and added a connection between Kindlewood town and the Rock gym town.

                                        Home Town name competition winner:
                                        And the winner is... pikarich! Yes, pikarich, who actually set up the comp had the best idea, Aurora town!

                                        Update on demo:
                                        I have been eventing a lot more, but sadly since I keep revamping what's already there, it's going to take a long while untill the demo is released. Still a couple of months probably.

                                        I'll reply to the quotes tommorow, I don't have enough time right now.

                                          Nice update, but why do the buildings look so square now?

                                            so, aurora town is the best, well done.
                                            How far have you got? It looks like it's turning out well.

                                              Cool new screens, I especially like the day/night one.
                                              And yeah Peeky Chew I meant like route and town maps, I'll try and get an example if those kinda maps are what you need.
                                              Keep up the awesome work on this!

                                              PS: What's with the blue foliage? Seems kinda wierd to me. Is it a feature in the game or something?

                                              Another thing, I think you still need to add more connections on that region map. I know that the player will be able to fly at some point, but it's nice to be able to walk.
