    Oh sorry I should've been more specific what I meant was a Overworld sprite template this can include from just the normal walking one to the ones for a trainer(surfing, fishing, fishing while surfing, bike, and running). I'm just saying this just in case of a possibility although I think you guys might just say that people can just search for it.

      Well since the essentials consists of FR/LG graphics it would be nice to have a OW sprite template. (Honestly I was meaning the 4th gen template but a FR/LG template would make more sense for the essentials)

        Either way, that's a resource, rather than something to include in Essentials. ROM hacking being popular and all, I'm sure you can find templates and tutorials and all that for Gen 3 graphics on the Interweb.

            The better mapping and tile system means nothing. Android compatibility means nothing. Essentials is written in Ruby. RPG Maker MV uses Java. Ruby same not Java, and one can't really port from one to the other.

            That said, someone could make an Essentials-like kit for RPG Maker MV, but that's not the same as making Essentials for MV. As such, Maruno won't be the one doing it.

              The point is that it doesn't use Ruby. The two RPG Makers are fundamentally incompatible here. You'd need to write all the scripts from scratch if you wanted something to put into RMMV, and that's way beyond the scope of Pokémon Essentials.

                  You can have this by changing the value of MAPVIEWMODE (Script-Section "Settings") to 2.

                    Yes, but perspective mode disregards priority.

                      It doesn't work any better or worse than it has ever done. I don't support it, so it's unlikely to ever get fixed.

                        Is It Possible That Moving Versions Of The Gen 5 Sprites Will Sooner Or Later Be Added, Or Is There A Reason Why That Has Been Avoided?

                          One feature I'd like to see in Essentials is the battle hints from Sun and Moon. If a move is super effective, the move's name becomes red instead of black. If it's not very effective, however, the text becomes blue. Maybe even have that feature togglable from the options menu.

                              There's a reason, and that reason is that the Gen 5 sprites were made for the Gen 5 style battle scene. Essentials uses a Gen 4 style battle scene, which is incompatible with full-body back sprites. You can of course have animated Pokémon sprites in Essentials, but full-body back sprites would look weird, especially if they're the same size as the front sprites rather than double the size.

                                You can get the Elite Battle system script if you want Gen 5's animated sprites. And they look way better than they would in a Gen 4 battle style IMO. Sadly (or not) Luka switched away from the classic Gen 5 UI though.

                                  The classic Gen 5 UI is still in the code for the EBS. Just set the variable NEXTGENUI to false.

                                    One suggestion I have for Essentials is a fail safe with double battles. Normally, if a Double Battle tries to occur when you have only one available Pokemon, the game crashes. I'd like the game to check if you only have one Pokemon and allow you to send out only that one rather than sending out either a fainted Pokemon, an egg, or a Pokemon that doesn't exist.

                                      Have the screenshots export in .png, because .bmp can't be uploaded to PC or Imgur (the later turns the image a blank white when you upload from file).

                                        Is there a real necessity to have Win32API implemented into the engine?
                                        Because if there isn't, dropping it could make MKXP compatible with Essentials, Android ports could be possible and at the same time, everyone would have a better performance when playing their games.

                                          yes we actually do need Win32API , if you look for "Win32API" in the scripts you will see a lot of scripts depend on this.

                                            I think a script to trade or battle online could be added. Having a server is of course up to the maker of the game but just a base script would be a good add I think. Would be good if the maker of the game only has to change the adress of the server in the script.

                                            I think this is the last great improvement essentials should make since especially trading is "essential".

                                              I actually have a suggestion for Essentials;

                                              The ability to work on a single project over an Internet connection would be the biggest convenience there is; for my team, having to wait for everyone to finish their side of the project and having to download the same folder repeatedly is cumbersome and annoying. One project and a way for a team to work on a project over the cloud would be a HUGE time-saver.

                                              It may be a little too much to ask, but this is undoubtedly a suggestion that is worth taking into consideration.

                                                That isn't something I think Maruno could fix. That seems more like an RPG Maker thing, not an Essentials thing.
