    Nothing amazing, like the post above me.
    But I'm making my own tiles and testing them out.

    Opinions?
    Soil and Grass are both WIPs

      Grass looks good but soil totally requires a change.


      I've made some Little GUI changes still WIP. Criticism and opinions appreciated.







      I'm trying to make the windowskin more detail better and like x and y.

      From Top left to Top Right, then second row:
      -100% Functional Pokemon Center (No Wifi yet)
      -Correct animations for Healing, including nurse bowing (also, PCC)
      -Your mother reminiscing
      -A School classroom. It's not yours!
      -A very accurate Pokemart GUI. The money window is bigger than the one in GSC for font reasons
      -A bathroom in your room
      -The Secretary enjoying his gameboy color
      -You unveiling your new Pokemon, and trying to recall him.

      This is one of my oldest projects being remade and drastically changed in storyline.

        its a solid start, the grass is too static, its all the same, it needs some variety, maybe some lighter patches and darker patches all around the standard green (if you get what i mean)
        like you have a standard green color, but theres the lighter patch, maybe make a few varying tiles where it has a different pattern, some as light, others darker, etc

        as for the soil it needs a color change, it looks weird with 2 colors. Take a look at actual ingame tiles for a reference; but its a good start. The fence is a little weird, if you changed it a bit so it connects to the next one, and flip the existing one so it goes up and down in a zig-zag i think it might look better

        This looks really cool, I like how you're sticking to the gen 1 and 2 graphics and design, it looks great!

        I dont get it...um, the color scheme on the pokemon summary page clashes with some text, and the type boxes look weird and done wrong, theres little squares on the edges that arent the same color, and it looks like you forgot to make them transparent
        the white on yellow on the battle screen clashes; it looks weird, and i dont like how it goes off screen like that with the lv #
        keep working on it, if what i see is correct it looks like depending on the move's type it has a different background, thats pretty cool
        overall just change the colors so the text doesnt get lost in all of your customization

          I haven't done this in a long time.
          Just a little teaser of what I'm working on. This screenshot is taken solely to be displaying the new tile-style I came up with, and to show the HUD I made. Please do not use any of the content. It is strictly private. All the elements within this screenshot are 100% custom, made by me.

            Luka go away! You're not supposed to post such awesomnes in here! That looks fabolous as hell as I said many times. Loving the HUD, tiles and everything, I wonder how the character will look like, Best of luck!

            I got a little exited because of my feels for the Sinnoh region, so I went ahead and mapped, fully evented, and tested Spear Pillar for Zircon! Everything works and the ability to travel to the Distortion/Reverse/Torn World has been implemented. I originally had Giratina in its Altered Forme, but I was convinced to put in Giratina's dimension.

            As per Cynthia tradition, expect her to stalk you throughout the region.

              Is the pokemon summary screen color's contrast good? Meaning does Purple look good wih green?
              I will change summary color once I'm home. I'll tweak dem scripts.

              Due to too much anti aliasing in the type boxes I forgot to remove the edges, will do once I get home.



              Now for the Post above me.

              Happy with cynthia's appearance as she is my favourite character from pokemo as well as her garchomp.

                  That's a lot better. The only thing that is bugging me are the graphics of the types of the Pokémon. They look out of place because they are glossy and the rest of the design is flat.

                    If you were going for sinister, then you've managed it. It just seems like a recolour for the sake of it, rather than trying to make it look good. The same goes even more so for your battle screen (and the Gen 5 battle bases for the sake of newer graphics rather than using the much superior ones that Essentials came with).

                    Just showing off the Options menu I made. Screen resizing works perfectly:


                    Feedback would be appreciated. I have limited space to work with but I'm happy to hear suggestions.

                        Here I have smoothened and edited some aspects of the summary screen:


                        I'm keeping the gen 5 battle bg's as I see nothing wrong with them, as I don't have a graphic designer to design me some custom ones so.


                        Nuzamaki:

                        The tiles look great they produce the pseudo 3d effect, also I like the GUI.

                          Not to make it seem like I'm showing off or anything but you really have just recoloured it and put a new background in which doesn't suit the style.



                          I must apologize for using one of my own but here I have not simply recoloured the image but reinvented the style.

                          This looks really great now that it doesn't look resized like the last one. I love the iterface at the bottom of the screen but I don't think that the tiles mix well with the sprite style simply because it isn't isometric.

                          Now onto my screens:

                          Spoiler:


                          I have a new evolution interface as well as a new starter selection interface and sequence.

                            I'm not the best with graphics, but how is your "new" summary screen not simply a recolour of the Essentials one? Are you referring to the metallic streaks over it? In any case, it's also dark and sinister when it really doesn't need to be (not to mention any black text is hard to read).

                              The black text has been fixed as I updated the image 1 minute after your post. I mean that the whole style has been changed. The reason it still resembles that of the essentials one is because changing the position of the text is a difficult job resulting in many errors for the inexperienced scripter.

                                It resembles the default essentials one, because it's a recolour... Nothing of the design other than the colours have changed.

                                    One thing I think should be changed is the little square in the corner (i sound stupid but i'll describe it) its the thing thats moved outward signifying you're on the "summary" screen of the pokemon's info, all the other squares are blue I think the one that you're currently on should be something like white or gray

                                    (the title is blurred because reasons)
                                    Wow, I guess yours got lost in the slue of new screenies
                                    I like the style, its like the actual design of RPG maker instead of the traditional pokemon game
                                    It could go either way but I find it refreshing to use something like this, in any case, the screenshot is pretty good (although theres not much to go off of) the house (or shed really) looks a little tiny and cramped, but I can't wait to see the overworld

                                      That's still not the correct terminology to use with your provided example. A recolour is the most accurate, as that's all it is. The style of an UI does not only consist of of it's background and colors, but also of the various elements within it. That consists of: button positions, fonts, text positions, text styles, and the multitude of the UI images themselves.

                                      This is a recolour of the bag interface. This is a restyle/redesign of the bag interface. See...big difference. And still don't think I'd be arrogant enough to call the second one "completely re-inventing it", because it isn't.

                                        You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

                                          I can't help crawling back to developing a Pokémon game XD. So anyway, decided to work on making a new summary screen for my game Pokemon: Lost souls. Still needs a lot of work doing to it, but you get the basic idea.

                                              Looks like the original but little different still WIP.
                                              I like the idea, it seems pretty cool, but the problem i have is how everything seems like its in empty space
                                              firstly, theres no borders on the top or bottom, it just seems unnatural to me...theres at least one at the top or bottom, it seems kind of weird without it, like its a simulation or something...its hard to explain but i think it would look good with something, maybe a darker color if you're against a border

                                              second, the text lies on the border in some areas (such as the "item" being too close to the edge, the exp numbers being close to the edge, and the pokeball being close to the corner) if theres was a little more room it would be perfect

                                              finally, an aesthetic choice that you might want to consider, where it says dragonite next to species, and red next to the OT, etc, i think it should be a lighter color than the rest of the background so it gives it a place, rather than being floating in space
                                              it's just something to consider, overall I like it! and I hope you make it even better, you've improved from the original post
