Like I said before, this went a step backward.
This is from a while back now but: no, you're absolutely right. Not only is the Editor.exe gone but so are all associated uses and conveniences that come with it. The Trainer stuff in particular, and its submenus, is all gone completely outside of manually editting the .txt file which is a nightmare mess to deal with.

And no you weren't wrong; it's not rolled into the debug menu despite what that one guy posted. That out-of-context screenshot that explicitly did not contradict this doesn't prove anything either. You straight up need to pick it out of an older version now to get the convenience it provided.

Oh but finding older versions to get it is outright impossible because of the nuked Download page on the wiki and no mirrors for anything other than v17.2 either. So basically removing that one thing and not giving anything to compensate for it makes the entire thing infinitely less user-friendly. Great design, that.

And, no, I'm not downloading a wholly separate external program. The sheer fact that they even exist is pretty telling itself that this is a genuine issue, and expecting people to put up with that is extremely absurdly hostile.

It's impressive how things can go out of hand.
If you are talking about creating Trainer types/Individuals the editor IS there.
Here is the proof (which I don't know how people missed it), if you don't feel like looking for it. I hope this clarify for anyone who may come across this post worrying about the editor.

Wondering, do you think Essentials will ever get a full 3D mode?

Please check out my InuYasha fanfiction and tell me what you think.

No, because RMXP does not support (good) 3D Graphics. Any models will slow your game to point of breaking. Use Unity, or some other more powerful game engine. Unity supports gems so I'm wondering if Essentials can be used as a gem....

Other than that, you're basically stuck in 2D for Essentials.

I know that the old wiki was shut down and that sharing download links is not allowed, but does anyone know if Maruno is still working on updating Pokémon Essentials?
Yep; he is working on v18 but it will be a while before any official notice...

I want to see the External editor return, like the PBS editor. However, the PBS editor is really limited. I never got the use the old editor, but there are some features I can't find in the PBS editor (Such as editing Status effects)
If your interested in tutoring me on how to use the scripting and answering all my questions, send me a PM and we can discuss contacting each other in further details.

A little info about me and my goals:

I am burned out on Pokemon games, which, since emerald, have gradually grown worse to me. I am a fan of Generation 3 and earlier. I have some creature ideas I'd rather keep to myself and friends, due to personal reasons. Thus, I want to make my first game encompassing them. I do not know how to program, so I'll learn by using pokemon essentials. Once I complete the game, I'll enjoy it, and work on an entirely new project.

Will it at least up the letter count for names, like have 12 letter max for your character instead of 7 letters.

It's already possible.
Go into settings script, the very first script, and you should find this piece of code:

#===============================================================================
# * The amount of money the player starts the game with.
# * The maximum amount of money the player can have.
# * The maximum number of Game Corner coins the player can have.
# * The maximum length, in characters, that the player's name can be.
#===============================================================================
INITIALMONEY    = 3000
MAXMONEY        = 999999
MAXCOINS        = 99999
PLAYERNAMELIMIT = 10
Just change the red "10" to another number.

Hi guys this is a stupid question but where can i download Pokemon Essentials?

It seems unavailable everywhere
Pokemon Essentials and its original wiki were taken down sometime last year, so as a result It has been treated the same way as ROMs, in that you can't link to a download for it.

Google is your friend here, unfortunately.

Hey, so I'm having a major problem. I'm using Essentials 17.2 and RPGMXP and on occasion, I can't even open the project that I'm working on. When I try to open it, I get an error message that says "Unexpected file name." This usually happens not long after I connect the maps in Debug Mode or after I add new tile sets. Sometimes it happens just after a couple of days. I would then have to re-download Essentials then start the project all over again. Has anyone had this issue?

Thats not an essentials issues, its a quite common issue with RPG Maker if its not closed down correctly. You best bet is to make sure you keep the data folder. backed up as then if it occurs you only need to restore the affected files

Links are not working for me. It sends me to the wiki in which it claims that the page is not what i'm looking for, and claims it does not recognize the link, then precedes to tell me that I should follow other wiki pages, I don't know how to make it work, so I gave up.

Yeah, lots of the links got taken down. But unfortunately part of the fallout of the takedown is a new rule on PC saying that no-one is allowed to share links to Essentials here. I'm afraid you'll just have to Google :(
