Introduction:
Many days, months and years have passed since the last release and you had to wait a very long time. Back when the 2nd beta was released, we were all mostly students and had much more time and less stress in the RL than it is unfortunately the case today.

At that time the 2nd beta was developed by "kids" and did not meet our expectations of how a game should look like. It took many failed attempts and new approaches, but now we finally have a solid foundation.

But the waiting has finally come to an end! As the longest Rome-Hack project on the German scene, we present the new edition of Pokémon Sovereign of the Skies in both German and English!

Informations:
  • Started: 10. April 2011
  • Rom-Base: Pokémon Emerald-Version (US)
  • Languages: German, English
  • Download: https://sots.karathan.at/

Team:
  • Dragonfly: Main Map Engineer, Main Story Engineer
  • Sbird: Main Developer, Main Story Engineer
  • Ipatix: Main Sound Engineer
  • Pseico: Main sound artist
  • Lennybitao: Main GFX Artist
  • Cookie: Main Story Engineer

Story:
The balance of a world is about to be shaken. While the mighty Guardians of Amitec can no longer leave their stronghold, the Sacred Shards of Celestis are stolen by the cold hands of Team Tundra. Find out what this is all about, and how a simple coach suddenly carries the fate of a world, in this unique adventure!

Features:
  • All Pokémon up to Generation 7: all Pokémon up to Generation 7 are included.
  • Mega-developments & Protomorphosis: read correctly, the mega-developments are back.

This actually looks pretty amazing and the story is quite interesting. I'm actually really curious as to how space would look like and the events up there once it's implemented. I really hope there's an English version. I'm kind of mad I don't know German. xD Best of luck!

now this looks really good, especially mixing in some Golden Sun scenes for some of the screenshots. :) I'll play it even if I don't know the language :D

i think i saw a golden sun reference in one of the screenies (the giant easter island face statue)...

an english translation would be nice, but gotta find someone who can do it proper and not some google tranlsate crap.

I was thinking about doing an english translation, but i think i'm not the man to do some sort of free translation...
Also what we had to to would be a translation of the graphical stuff, because we can't just change the rombase, as you can read we already are near to beta 2 which goes up to the 7th badge and is at about 70% of the whole project. If we would do an english rombase we had to translate that for our german community members hehe.

Anyway i'm very statified you like the thing, also I want to specially thank an guy of the forums here, it's "diegoisawesome", he helped me a lot with the rockfall thingy, he gave me his code for this and I also extended it to make simple script execution possible, in my opinion: AWESOME, thank you very much for this :)

And for the end: Special thanks to Alen, who is a german romhacker and moderator at RHR, he translated our posting to plain english, special thanks for that to him, he is a great guy also on the german forums :)

This hack is very innovative! Events that start as soon as you enter the map instead having to take a step, no truck intro, the moves that you can use outside of battle. Everything about this hack, especially the water graphics, is beautiful! Totally worth the pain of Google Translating every line.
