  • 15 days is close enough, ok?


    Amethyst

    hello! check that out! bi-weekly! what a concept!

     

    so my mapping is done, y'all. a glance to the right will show you that mapping on the whole is only at 85% but that remaining 15% is being taken care of by the generous mappers i introduced last time. they're so sweet. in my last post i mentioned i still had one more area to do-- and it is done. it was done in a 24 hour frenzy of motivation while listening to Melodrama on loop probably about fifty gabillion times. and it is great.

    its also gonna have a few hundred passability errors
    details.

    on the whole i really like how the new areas in E17 have come out. i hope you will all have as much fun exploring them as i did making them!*
     

    *this does not include the desert. although it had its moments, it was often not very fun to make. please have more fun exploring it than i did making it. please.
    also i would like to never see a sand tile again, js.

     

    anyway! we move into eventing next, but first we're making a pit-stop in the past. now that the desert map is done, i'll be redoing the intro. from day 1, i had wanted to show the player riding in through the desert on the train to grandview station, but as it turns out it's a little bit difficult to do that when you don't have a desert map to ride in on. therefore i'd planned for a long time to add that in when i did finally get tourmaline mapped. while i'm at it, i'm actually changing the intro completely (up to the point of station explosion). since it's literally the first part of the game and wouldn't be a spoiler, i will probably make and post a video of it when it is finished. 
    the intro is not being accounted for in the eventing % though; it will be in the Misc Updates section, and is in fact the main item there.

     

    more soon. <3

    Isn't it weird that bi-weekly can mean twice per week or once every two weeks?

    Either way, we are lucky to get two updates in a week. Wow, new intro. Worth restarting game.

    >New intro

     

    It's official. Ame really is trying to make me go off the deep end with this Gen VII and all those seeds. But honestly, Reborn's desert can't be worse than Gen VI. But alas we shall wait until then to see what you have in store for us. Hopefully before December this time.

    Oh boy... I can already hear Route 111 remix here... Or maybe Relic Castle v.II! OrJustUse vI,NobodyWillNotice
     

    This is a question that have been lingering in my head for quite some time ago...
    What about the Terrain Extender? Will it replace the Amplifield Rock? or viceversa?

    I will enjoy my time throughout all of the new areas in episode 17. Now with a new intro to enjoy also, I will have to make a new play through to experience it. Thanks Ame, these sound wonderful.

    it's confusing but we can fix this! bi- = every two X. semi- = twice per x. bam bam done.

    idk how you've been merging updates but this is (more or less) confined to three maps or so so it shouldn't be too bad for you

    The Amplifiled Rock is a lot more thematic than Terrain Extender, and also more useful since it applies to Gravity + TR, so we'll be keeping it.

    Since you mentioned stuff like intro among other things,  it reminded me that thing i wanted to ask you Ame, 

     

    i had this thought about the title screen that it could display the current episode your file is at, (which would be updating everytime we progress to the next one) complete with its title,  including the darker music that was playing pre-renovation (ep15), which would change to the more uplifting tone of e16 when that time comes.

     

    lol i said "ask" but the above was not even a question -_-'

     

    so yeah is it even possible? and if yes, do you find this idea good/worth doing?

    My old laptop died including my Reborn file, so I'm super excited waiting for the next update to blast through it again! Updated intro is an added bonus :D Thanks for having an update blog.

    With regards to the intro, have you considered updating it a la Sun and Moon, so that instead of asking you your gender (which, even with the three options, could potentially lead to awkward places) it asks you what you look like, displaying all six character models and allowing you to choose between them all at once? Just a thought.

    I am glad that this ep will be released more quickly than the earlier one (s). 

    Keep up the good work Ame as well as the other developers!!.

    I just can't wait for the next episode!!! Because I'm grinding out all of my pokemon at the Grand Hall, and it's starting to get boring battling the same trainers over and over again.

    That being said, even if all of my Pokemon is level 80-85, I already know that I'm gonna get all KINDS of f**ked up in the new episode...

    I guess while I'm waiting for this I might as well go and get every Shiny I can possibly get. I might start over just to try and get a Shiny Lucario (since I got a male one and it can't breed with Ditto). But I really don't want to go through 14 gyms of Hell all over again. Although I might try it with a different team this time and get screwed all over again, so that'll be fun.

    New intro? Does that mean that IF we want to experience it we have to restart the game?

     

    you could just start a new game and not save! i'll also be uploading a video

    thinking about final releases...

    i think i get why "finished games" are rare

    it's hard to look at the thing you spent [x] time on and be like
    "yup. this is good. i'm done."
