Two Questions
« on: October 24, 2008, 09:20:17 pm »
First, are proper nouns going to be capitalized or not?
Second, are we going for more of an R/S/E style or D/P/Pt? The second would be a tad harder to code. We don't have to limit ourselves to 386 pokemon if we go with a gen 3 look, though... just saying that it might be more prudent to sacrifice "advance-ness" in favor of speed. It was probably noted that we'd be doing Generation 2 style, but then we'd have to devamp hundreds of sprites to conform to that.

I'm asking these because these will eventually be the engine defaults.

Well, really you could just make a low detail version and a high detail version. One using R/S/E the other using Platinum (since platinum looks way better) if people are willing to make the artwork (D/P/P uses sprites then 3D animates them iirc).

As for proper nouns, the POK?MON thing in the games really bugged me so use proper capitalization. :P

Not necessarily. Do all aspects of the game need to look the same? (I.E. 3rd gen battles AND 2nd gen maps.)
Please fix the spoiler tags. Some people post from netbooks or phones!


I recently acquired a 160GB Hard Drive. For $12, it seemed like a good idea. Now, I have no idea what to do with that much space...

They don't have to, but it would look incredibly unprofessional if they didn't.

True. But perhaps it doesn't have to look completely professional. I mean, we don't even have a beta version of the game ready. Whose to say that it can't be updated later.

Good point. We aren't limited to one release.
GONE.

I can sprite a later gen map (ie. 4th gen/3rd gen perferably 4th gen) if you want.  OR we could make our OWN GENERATION artwork that's inbetween 4th gen and 3rd gen or even better than 4th gen minus all those damn 3d glitches.

We don't have to use the artwork from the games you know. (That and I can do stuff with pixels.)

You should totally do that!
