        Jeez, the quality of the games being produced has increased ENORMOUSLY since I stopped developing games myself. Kudos to all you gamemakers!

            Those screens look Beautiful man. The mapping's looking great too. Oh You know, I can help you make a Titlescreen with a Glowing Lugia or something like that right? I think That'd be cool to see, It'd add onto the Games Appeal. Anyway Keep it up.

            These are looking very nice, I like how you put The official games art to great use, very nice. I find it a bit scary to be meeting Oak at night though lol, Unless there's a reason for that.

            That's pretty impressive to see, another 3D game. Looks pretty good, the map seems a bit small though.

            @BlitŻ: Really nice backgrounds, if you made them yourself. The Oak looks like it's from another fangame I have seen but that might just be a public one. I don't really like the name btw.

            @MarkLegault: Not really that good tbh, a lot of improvement is needed.

              The artwork is from HGSS, the Oak is too.

                I know ( I said). What part needs more attention?

                  I assume he meant what he said. I could be wrong. Maybe it was a typo?

                      Oh, and what's with the pink Gyarados?

                      I'm assuming it's supposed to be a new Pokémon, but it looks an awful lot like Gyarados...

                      We don't know yet, , we got permission to use some concept art from someone, but we haven't decided to use it as either a cooler shiny gyarados, or a new fakemon, although I'm voting for new shniy gyarados :d

                        i think the pokemon dimension hack shots look amazing, i wanna play it to see if it is actually any good. i think it will be immense. i say the same to sonce it seems to have a certain style. but i prefer many of the nintendo games in 2d. but they all look amazing.

                        i forgot to ask; do any of you give lessons and stuff you should all be making tutorials on how to make them look this good. and i am not just talking about you guys the malachite people and reysin city creators too...

                              I'm not a fan of that at all.
                              It's way to plan. No detail.
                              You used only one texture the whole way through.
                              You should ad least at something to it, like have the stairs as stone blocks rather then sand.

                                  Hmmmph, I think you don't know the techniques of texturing a 3d model. Allow me to critic your work.
                                  1.- The texture is plain, there're no either highlights or shadows. Even when your engine has lights projected on the model, you MUST as shadows to the texture. You can add a bit of variation on some floors or... whatever they're. Of course, the tiled texture helps you to save a lot of memory and it will be easier to preload and load the texture, but it will look plain if you don't do anything about it. For the stairs I strongly recommend you to make another texture.
                                  2.- Try to use the same style of textures for everything. It will look prettier if you use a more... cartoon-ish texture on that pyramid. So, a texture made by your own hand WILL be better, otherwise, using those kind of textures, will make the game look annoying. It looks kinda realistic.
                                  3.- About the point no.1: The shadows can be made on the lighting map(bakes) if you can't paint them by yourself. A very recommended way to do it, is to make a high-poly model and project the lights and shadows on the low-poly one, which is the one your use on the video game.

                                  I don't know anything about the engine you're using... blender, but it's a 3d modeling program, so it must have the same options as 3DsMax. And with "options", I mean the maps you can use to make a good texture.

                                    OK, I was thinking of realtime shadows. If you mean something like baked-in ambient occlusion map, I haven't tried that and don't know how it will look like with real shadows...

                                      Ok, firstly... "Hmmmph" means an expression of thinking about something.
                                      About that texture, it's okay then, you made it yourself, you can learn new thing by doing and re-doing stuff.
                                      I also thought about what you said: the real time shadows when I started on the 3d job, BUT, it will look too simple, well, more than simple, it will look like on real life. There's a term you must understand: Hyperrealism. That term is what makes the difference between the real life and videogames. When you stare into anything real, there're no painted shadows but the ones you can see with the light itself: like the sunlight, the electric light from your room, etc... and they look simple and sometimes plain. In video games, that stuff is different: the lights are not always moving, they're mostly static, so, if you put an object without the shadows painted on it, it will look ugly, the light is not enough for the object to look good, and the point is to make the objects to support the default shadows in order to look prettier than any real one. Notice the words "to look even better", not realistic. Another thing, but I don't think you're using this: the specular map, that's the one which gives the model a shiny effect. Check the pictures below, those are mine. The metal part of the mallet shines much more than the real one(the little picture with white background is the reference there, the real one). That's one of the points on hyperrealism: "Wow!! dude, that things looks cool!", when you see something real, you don't surprise all the time.

                                        Yes, they are mostly static: in buildings, caves, even in many outdoor scenerys. I was thinking of something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zU12yLbPzE

                                        Yeah, I'm not using a specular map, do I really need it here? Its all rock...
                                        On the other hand I could try to make it less perfect and clean,add some grass.
                                        BTW, nice models
