  • E17 Status Categories


    Amethyst

    Let's talk about the categories in the Status Update block, since some of them have changed a bit from before.

     

    Gen VII Updates: (we didn't even have a dev blog last time there was a generation update!)

    • Sprites
      • We can't use the Smogon set, so we've gotta scrounge up our own. Fortunately many pixel artists list theirs as free use and so I've been able to gather a solid chunk. We'll polish them and make the rest. This progress bar also includes Shiny and Egg spriting. 
    • Scripting
      • Marcello is a peach and this will be almost (if not) entirely his domain. It includes updates to old battle stuff, most of which have already been done as of this writing, and the implementation of all moves and abilities. It is a long road!
    • Data
      • This is basically everything in the PBS files, such as data, movesets and TM availability, plus details on the new items/moves/abilities. Marcello is actually a peach and a half and is fronting most of this work as well. 
    • Field Updates
      • Although I had hoped we would be done with them before, Psychic Terrain will be added. This section will also include adding new attributes to all field for any relevant moves and abilities.
    • Gameplay
      • The most generic name possible. This is a catch-all for adding new Pokemon into events/encounters and trainer battles, and distributing new items. Tbh this is the fun part. 

    New Content:

    • Misc Updates
      • So I lied and this isn't actually new content at all but whatever. In the past we had separate categories for graphic/event/etc updates but there's few enough this time that I'm lumping them all in here. 
    • AI Updates
      • A planned renovation to get down and dirty with the AI. Right now most moves have little or no AI coding specifically for them. I won't get through all the moves this episode, but I'll spend some quality time with a good chunk of them. 
    • Graphics/Maps
      • Previously these were separate but I put them together since the graphics in question are usually tilesets for new areas, and I prefer to tailor tiles to their maps. There are 7 new areas to make this episode, so this will be the bulk of the content work!
    • Eventing
      • Teleport events, area puzzles, encounters, items and special Pokemon. This is sort of a catch-all for everything that is not mapping, but also not part of the main story. 
    • Story
      • All story events. This episode will have a branched story, so it will take a little longer.

    Branching story? That sounds like all my RPG dreams ever! Also sounds difficult to implement, or at the very least tedious :P

    I wonder if the branched story has anything to do with

      Hide contents

    Which of the three renovation projects you decided to fund.

     

    Doubt it. My guess is something to do with...

    Meteor goes to the desert to get the bracelets from Titania, Titania thinks she's ez win, until they reveal captive Amaria or something to that effect. Choose which of them to save, get the badge for one earlier than the other.

     

    Seven areas matches up with 5+ (I cant see the map because it's deleted but I think so?) areas on the handdrawn map from way back when, so this looks like the desert exploration episode, perhaps +1 or 2 areas.

    just to be clear about what a 'branched story' implies, it is not anything terribly dramatic like what some of these comments imply. a lot of parts of the game have had branched stories, for instance with regards to who gets kidnapped at tanzan, etc. manage your expectations accordingly.

    I figured it was more along the lines of do this section for badge A then do this section for badge B, but it could be done vice versa with a few differences. There are quite a number of things this branched path could be, but I have a feeling it has to do with a Crobat. Just a feeling.

    This is again, taking it a bit to the extreme here. There is not a jump in difficulty if you're expecting it, but more like the gimmicks of Pokemon will be slightly improved such as Kiki's Fake Out, Unburden, Normal Gem Hitmonlee. Of course my knowledge of Reborn is way, way outdated so I don't know how "bad" the AI is.

     

    @Everyone suggesting the restoration projects affect the storyline: First off, that is completely optional. Second off, there'd have to be 4 entirely different sets of dialogue to acknowledge each change in the world. And third, those are areas designed for sidequest events which do not give any info on any character in the main story.

    dw, everything is expected within the given boundaries, I'm just the enthusiastic kinda guy and the game already is marvelous, so ^-^

    Imo every enhancement of difficulty can make a change, quite some battles can come down to the last move (unless you specifically choose Pokemon against the upcoming opponent, I guess).
    As for the AI,  since I've given it a full playthrough again, for the most part it's ok/good and can pack a punch, sometimes it still seems to not recognize it had a better move available, but what can you do. 
    It can get a bit worse when switching in a type-disadvantaged Pokemon that just gets one-shot because it's also outspeeded (i.e. Archeops into Greninja as my latest example) while still having 2-3 better options, but that's about it.

    As for the branch thing, every decision the player can make on their own (you don't know the possible consequences the first time), makes it even more lively!
    Some players will choose impulsively, some will think for a minute, some for five, some much longer.
    A Pokemon game just by nature has a linear format, so shaking it up (of course, relative to according boundaries again) goes a long way!

    this sounds awesome and can't wait for it, but to be honest i think you need to take a brake ame. i'm not sure when you are planning to start development or if it's already in progress but, i'm sure everyone will agree wiht me when i say i think you should relax  and take a brake for a week or two then start, episode 16 just came out. chill and relax for a bit even if it's just till the new year and come back fresh.

    Okay... it's been like what? Two months and the update is already a 35%??? Is this normal because sprites/scripting/data is not long at all or are you really speeding up things?

    I absolutely love how much progress you guys have made in the short time after the release of episode 16, makes it seem that 17 is in the near future, I can wait as I'm playing through it all again. Mostly to relive Terra's dialogue, love that part, anyways I hope she reappears at some point. Other than that, keep up the hard work, finish the gen 7 contents then take a short break, it's well deserved and then continue on.

    It's gonna be a challenge to top 16, and I'm still confident it'll happen.

    I'm pretty sure it's been said in other posts that all Gen 7 Pokemon will be in the post-game at the soonest, so I doubt that we'll be seeing anything until episode 19 whenever that comes out (that last episode I expect will take a long time).

    This is incorrect, all Gen 7 pokemon are being fully implemented throughout the game, distributed throughout the wild, events, and opposing trainers. Indeed, we've already done these distributions (That's what the 'Gameplay' section of Gen VII content meant). Indeed, while I can't make any promises on whether A. Marowak will be obtainable yet or not, going into E17 we're pretty far through the game, makes sense that most things will be available by now.

    Wait, there are still people who think gen 7's pokemon will all be postgame? I mean, why would you think that when they've been added to the next ep? That makes no sense. Why bother adding the data and sprites for like 80 pokemon to the game if you're not gonna bother adding any of them into the wild and/or events in the game?

    Well, there are many pokemons that are not out yet and got sprites, shiny version, eggs, and there are even some mega evolutions that we haven't seen and probably won't see any time soon.

    Hey. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but I have a couple of questions. 

    1. My brother has been watching play Reborn for a while and he wants to try it. Is there a way for him to play without compromising my own save data?

    2. Is there or will there be a chance to get another exp share? I traded away Bird Jesus to get the Kalos Fossils but it still had the item stuck on it.

    Any feedback would be very appreciated. Thank you.

    1. Yeah you can rename your own savefile and keep changing them back and forth or you can use http://www.rebornevo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/20828-mod-save-file-manager/ instead.

    2. You will need someone to hack in an exp share for you or someone could trade it for you.

    Thank you for your answers. So where do I go to ask someone about the exp share. I leave my save file here. If there's a better place to post, it would be very nice to know. Thanks again.

    Sorry to disappoint, but there's the supervised testing to finish up first, then the alpha, then the beta... and only after that there's the community release. Sooo, the episode should be available to all members in like, a few weeks. If everything goes well.

    It's still coming pretty soon ;)

    Gah, I really want to play the updated game soon. I know that checking a game for bugs-especially one this size which is impressive in itself-is bound to take awhile but my impatient nature is really bugging me... I guess I can try to replay E16 because I haven't really made it past Radomus but I don't know if E17 will make it so I have to have a New Game before playing it.

    If u havent main it past Radomus, then u have quite a ways to go before u ever make it to episode 17. 15 Ends at Ceil. So really the only thing you are waiting for is gen 7?

    Yeah I see what you mean but with how long it takes to get to Radomus I don't know if I want to start now or wait until it comes out due to how I might have to make a new file with the update.

    Before Radomus I would say you still have about 30 hours to get the remaining badges, and about 35 to 45 hours if you complete the sidequests available. It could take more time depending on how long you take for beating each gym and if you dedicate a lot of time to game events and sidequests.

    this update must be a big one, since the Gen 7 Pokemon will be added, the Gym Leaders will most likely have different teams than the previous ones, so this will make things interesting

    I'm pretty sure Julia will get Oricorio Pom-pom

    Ame has confirmed Julia will be getting Oricorio Pom Pom, yes. Here are the team changes that we know about

     

    Cain: Alolan Muk

    Julia: Alolan Geodude*, Oricorio Pom Pom

    Shade: Mimikyu

    Aya: Salazzle

    Serra: Alolan Ninetales. Additionally, the TM she'll be giving will now be Aurora Veil, with a team and strategy centered around the move

     

    It's possible that there are others I'm forgetting. 

     

    I remember someone saying "Shelly needs a Ribombee" and Ame said something like "everyone needs one", but I'm not sure if that was confirmation or not that Shelly will get Ribombee. 

     

    *Ame didn't explicitly say "Julia is getting Alolan Geodude", but when asked on tumblr, she said there are precious few Electric types that get Explosion and that it would be a shame to pass one up

    Good thing I didn't invest so much time for breeding into my E16 playthrough than I did with my E15. Every update seems to bring so much new that one can only fully appreciate it with a new playthrough, and I'm cool with that. With such an amazing story, it never gets boring. Now enough with the brownnosing, back to the waiting game.

    I've been checking the development part of the forum a few times a week just waiting for a dev blog to start. I ended up reading another thread that said E17 is 'indev' so was like 'what???', looked around, couldn't find anything, and after maybe 10 minutes of looking I decided to google.  TO FIND OUT IT'S AT 100%. May be in heaven.
