Hack of the Month Voting - May 2014

We pick, you choose. Participate in polls every month to decide the best hack of that month!

Introduction

Seeing as there are plenty of great hacks around the forums, we've decided to re-introduce the Hack of the Month contest. ROM Hacking moderators will pick three hacks each month, and you members will have until the next month to vote for your Hack of the Month. The winner hack's thread will be stickied for a month, until the next month's winner is announced. Only hacks in the Progressing Hacks forum are eligible for nomination. You may suggest hacks you'd like to see in the following month's contest in this thread.

Eligible Hacks

Pokémon: Discovery by Le pug

Pokémon Ruby Destiny - Broken Timeline by destinedjagold

Pokémon Platinum: Red and Blue by gogojjtech

Rules

You may only vote once per month.
Asking or bribing others to vote for your hack is not allowed.
Creating new accounts to vote multiple times is not allowed and will be dealt with accordingly.
Voting is done via the poll not by posting in this thread, votes in the form of posts will not be counted.
Don't complain that your hack was not chosen this month.

      Me too.
      Especially now that it's getting a ''full region'' beta.

        The hack of the month is based only on visuals/features/interest?

        Because I don't understand how people can vote for the hacks you've chosen this month when none of them have any sort of playable alphas or betas available yet. All three of them look great, but people can't judge or pick a favorite when they have no hands-on experience with them.

        Edit: I agree with the two above. If this hack of the month thing does continue, Normal Version should be on next month's picks.

        The main aim of Hack of the Month is to drive more attention to hacks in the Progressing Hacks section, most of which don't have any releases. We hope this will encourage people to work more on their hacks and actually get them released.

        Hacks with releases aren't as common, and we'd eventually run out of hacks for this if we were to only have hacks with playable releases available for voting in this contest. Hack of the Year is much more fitting for finished hacks or hacks with a lot of progress anyway.

          I voted for Pokemon: Discovery. It just makes me want to play more! I love the different idea of using ships and a sailor life storyline. I can't wait to play this one the most!

          Pokémon Ruby Destiny - Broken Timeline: This one is interesting as well. Aside from the custom graphics, it seems like quite the ride. Nice job!

          Pokémon Platinum: Red and Blue: My least favorite of the three. I'm not a huge fan of the DPPl graphics. Aside from that, its seems pretty good with the Sinnoh Pokemon! Good job as well!

          I'm excited to see these hacks continue. Good luck, everyone!

            I would go for Ruby Destiny in this one.

            I should also say that Normal should be in the list imo.

                Platinum Red and Blue, because it has a lot of features, that other hacks don't have. Such as custom evolution methods, custom Pokéballs, Formes and all.

                  Ruby Destiny. Because... it's Ruby Destiny.

                    Interesting. So if you win, are you eligible for next months contest (and so on)? On that note, are the losers eligible for next months contest?

                    When it comes to graphical appeal, I obviously will NOT stand a chance.

                    If you win you're not eligible again but you do gain an advantage in one of the Hack of the Year rounds. If you lose you are still eligible for future contests but we'll try not to put a hack up twice in a row.

                      Would be nice if there is Normal Version. Though it has a beta released already, the hack is worth noting and needed boosted support. Maybe next month I hope significant entries will be picked to be voted for.

                      I think everyone should remember here that even if you don't win HOTM it's not the end of the world. In all honesty, it's going to push you to strive harder. Also, to whoever makes all these hacks, me working for Discovery, I can see if this type of stuff will get you stressed but quite frankly, I don't care. All that matters is if you have a passion to hack and enjoy rom hacking. That is all.
                      Good luck to Destinedjagold and Gogojjtech, it's been an honor competing along side both of you for the HOTM of May.

                      All this friendly competition is quite enjoyable :D
                      Discovery has a great story and a great team
                      Ruby Destiny also has a great story, and it also has a huge following from the other 3 (which were incredibly written)

                      Although we're all in small stages right now, I can see these 4 hacks going very far. Much like how Light Platinum and Flora Sky, along with Normal Version had gone incredibly huge from small beginnings. Best of luck to you guys :D

                            I voted for Pokemon Discovery, mainly because I'm expecting a fun, unique storyline. All three look incredible from what I have seen, and I am psyched to play all three.

                            As an aside, Pokemon Mega Power and Normal Version would be great choices for next month's HOTM.

                            Broken Timeline's got a pretty interesting story, and judging from all of Jagold's previous hacks, I'm sure he has some very fun and engaging scripts in there. Platinum: Red and Blue—I love how much effort Gogo's put in. Some people hasn't been able to play Platinum, with few of them not having ability to run a good DS emulator on their computer; for those people, they would finally get to have a taste of generation four. Personally, though, my favorite of the three has gotta be Pokémon Discovery. This hack's got it all, from characters and graphics, all the way to events. Due to that, Discovery gets my vote. :] Definitely going to give it a shot once beta is released.
