  • Boxing with my development responsibilities


    Marcello

    I categorically did NOT make this topic purely for the terrible pun in the title.

     

    So, I've been slowly but surely fighting the AI to make it work, but this isn't about that. AI, of course, is not the only responsibility I have on Reborn. Sometimes it's important to pay attention to quality of life features. And Gen VII added a few of these which we have yet to catch up to. Well, E18 will come with one of my favourites of those features included:

    (Get it? BOXING with my responsibilities? Because you can send your pokemon to the box upon getting a new one? :]]]])

     

    It should also be noted this doesn't just work with wild pokemon. You're given this same option with Event pokemon and, on top of that, even eggs! (And yes, that also means if you so wish, you can either add eggs straight to your party, or send them to the pc, no trips back to a pokemon centre necesarry anymore!)

     

    Well, that's been this small update, and so I have to go slink back into my AI hole, I hope you're all excited for E18.

     

    But seriously, I have no regrets about the pun.

    Oh! I completely forgot to add, a big thanks to @Waynolt for letting me adapt some of the scripts from their Egg Picking mod and repurpose them for this. We initially asked to use the scripts from the mod for a totally different purpose, but it turned out to be far more useful as a basis for this system!

    Good job! A quick question, since Gen VII (I think) you can get experience when you capture a wild mon so is that feature not going to be implemented in Reborn? It's perfectly fine if it doesn't nonetheless.

    This is a good update. 

     

    Speaking of Boxes, is there any plans to add more box management tools? things like the orange multi-move cursor or selecting a group of boxes and applying sorts to them

     

    also good luck continuing to make these silly pixel people less dumb

    With this change people will get themselves trapped in HM blocked areas, won't they?

    We've chosen not to implement this because of the level cap-- it could be detrimental for some players especially in the early game where the cap is a bit tight.

    We've got a couple QoL improvements slated for the final release but it's on the basis of if we happen to have time to implement them after everything else is done.

    Maybe just make it so you can't send a pokemon that knows a TMX move back to the box. it's a bit limiting, but should solve the stuck problem unless they really go out of their way to use the TMX move to get somewhere, delete it off the pokemon, and then catch something and send that pokemon back. in which case they probably deserve it.

    well as long as you are in a tmx accessible area with wild pokemon you could always just force K.O. yourself and it would auto return you to the last pokecenter you visited....

    Well, I'm sure Ame and the dev team will eventually make it so that we won't have to force our Pokemon to learn certain HMs in order to access certain areas, like how Sun and Moon do.

     

    But, if this will be the case for people, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that people download the SWM modular modpack created by Waynolt in order to use HMs freely on the outside world without having to teach them to any of your Pokemon. This will fix the problem most players will have in case of accidental storage of certain Pokemon necessary of exiting a specific area.

    "(And yes, that also means if you so wish, you can either add eggs straight to your party, or send them to the pc, no trips back to a pokemon centre necesarry anymore!)"

     

    ...

     

    flashbacks to my 3 trips between the scrapyard and the mountain with the Rowlet egg on it.

    ...I am only a little bit absolutely livid at learning that this feature was being added after I had to go through that fucking shitshow where I had to make room in my party after the first trip, then forgot about the egg and caught something before remembering the reason I went up and forgetting I caught the other pokemon on my second trip.

     

    Jesus Christ. That Rowlet was not worth the effort.

    Just by seeing this, I’m so excited. I just did another play through of this game for the first time in a few years, and I was amazed to see how much was added. I love this game so much, you guys do a great job, and I can’t wait to play after 18 is done!!
