Current Demo: http://capx.wikia.com/wiki/Demo
As we speak, the Pokemon League Champion is being decided. Who do you want as champ, /vp/?
Options have been whittled down to:
1) The Luchador
The Luchador is a masked hero who strikes fear into the hearts of baddies across Urobos. He's publicly known - kids love him, women want him, men want to be him. He entered the League to prove he was the #1 hero in Urobos, and became the Champion. He is charismatic, proud, and a little overbearing. He has swagger, and is not above taunting and making jokes about his foes. He's the kind of guy who would show up to your battle, put an arm around your shoulder way tighter than you're comfortable with, talk shit to the enemy, and then sit back and laugh while you fight (but help out if needed).
The champion is an Urobosian musical Wunderkind who has risen meteorically through both the Urobosian Elite 4 to Champion and the music scene in Urobos. The Composer is known for his bombastic and emotional symphonies and concertos that are widely popular with both people and Pokemon alike. The Composer battles with equal bombast and vigor, treating each battle as if it was his next grand opus, often using his experiences battling as inspiration for his orchestral works. As a local Urobosian, the champ takes great interest and pride in his home and cares greatly for the people he performs for.
3) Pokeman B (Secret Identity)
Outside of the costume he is a charismatic guy who rose through his own hard work. He's well liked by most and takes on a mentor-esque position for young trainers. He seeks out problems before they get bigger. He was investigating ET and originally donned the Pokeman persona because he feared reprisal and didn’t have enough evidence to prove their guilt. Acting a bit sillier to hide his true identity (and as he confesses himself “the costume just brings it out of you”). In costume he acts like a Power Ranger/Sentai. Speaking about justice, friendship, etc.
He understands the importance of technology and the good it can do. He also knows the importance of respecting nature and striking a balance between the two. As a ranger he protects the environment and the region as a whole. Whenever disaster strikes, he can be found on the front lines doing whatever he can to stop it as well as protecting the pokemon and people in danger. As a native born Urobian, he is patriotic and strives to uphold the region's culture and tradition, while still looking toward the future as well. He is friendly and charismatic, but he also knows when to get serious.
I know nothing about this but it has the best fakemon out of any other fangame i've seen
like alot of them i'd prefer over a hell of alot of official mons
luchador, not even a contest
Composer would be my choice. A musical genius that presumably have gotten everything in his life served on a silver platter, but is still actually a competent battler sounds like somebody I would love to beat. Composer is a cool theme too.
Luchador just sounds like a Crasher Wake clone to me and I can't take him serious.
Pokeman B sounds incredibly anti-climatic since you already defeated and exposed ET. So you have practically surpassed him even before the battle.
Ranger is good enough, but he just sounds a tad bit generic.
Ranger is bland and he wouldn't be able to champ and range at the same time
Luchador and Sentai are literal meme concepts fitting for a Miror B tier joke battle, nothing more
Liam "Bulbapedo" Pomfret
He would fit more for pokeaus tho
I rewrote the submission specifically so that they could do that. I tried to base them on the composers of the Romantic era because those composers had great senses of nationalism and that would give the composer a reason to get invested in stopping the ET if necessary.
>Who do you want as champ, /vp/?
Isn't that obvious?
He have whole bulbapedo in his heda
>Who do you want as champ, /vp/?
Unless it's been done already.
>must be a shitpost
you're obviously more concerned with fulfilling arbitrary criteria than making a quality game.
>no Pokédad / Red equivalent
Opportunity lost, shoot and burned at the stake.
We said no to gen 6 mechanics because the balance would be off for most of them with no fairy type. Back in 2012, before gen 6, we had to make a decision as a project that in the (at the time) unlikely event gen 6 brought a new type, would we want to include it in our game. Ultimately, as a project, we voted no to that. With all of the other changes that gen 6 brought, we felt that having gen 6 mechanics but with no fairy type could lead to imbalances that we could not plan for. We know what gen 5 and no fairies looks like and we know what gen 6 with fairies looks like, but we do not know what gen 6 with no fairies or gen 5 with fairies looks like. So rather than fumble in the darkness, we're opting to stick to what is known to honor that past survey.
If Gen 7 comes out before we release our game, I fully expect that decision to be revisited, but that's a shitstorm for another time.
No we wont
What? You're making a South American game and you don't know El Santo?
This lad on the left, mexican wrestler superhero. He teamed up with Captain US and A to defeat evil spiderman in turkish bootleg film
Don't you have story and theme based on mesoamerica too? I recall there's a coatl legend and the whole region name
south and meso civilisations were similar, more than to proper northern indians
Yeah they only made him into superhero in it but he is a famous wrestler there
>yfw Composer came in third to Pokeman and Luchador in the initial round of voting
How would all of you feel if this happened?
Honestly, Composer is my least favorite champ.
Of the four presented Pokéman is the best but his change in character after unmasking is bullshit.
The Veteran, the Dad and the Viking were way better options, but that was before the project left /vp/.
Viking would be great, it'd foreshadow a hypothetical Scandinavian region.
Veteran was around but got BTFO. No one even remembered to submit a dad is champ which speaks volumes of its popularity. If you think the change in Pokeman's character after unmasking is BS, then why not vote for one of the other 3?
Because Pokéman is rad and the other three are pretty boring.
Dreamdery Ranch Sidequest Outline Submissions:
Your outline must be 250 words or less. It must contain a rough chronological series of events including the primary task the player sets out on and how it is resolved, who the major players are (people or pokemon) and where the events happen. You do not have to include a specific reward in the outline if you want. Do not include the implications that the conclusion of the sidequest will have in the greater region in your outline.
As per the the survey of expectations that the sidequest should have, include it wholy within Dreamdery Ranch, do not have more than a couple stages and do not interweave it or link it with otherwise entirely seperate sidequests
Steven is the rancher of Dreamdery Ranch. After achieving the badge for the Quaver Gym you can talk to Steven at the entrance to Dreamdery Ranch. When you get into the ranch you find that his barn is completely vandalized by spray paint. He tells you that there are pesky Macabra spray painting his barn at night and he needs your help to catch them in the act. The player must return at night and stake out to watch. Just as you settle in a Dreamdery from the pen hops onto the roof and starts spray painting. You and the rancher watch dismayed as a Macabra comes out of the forest to stop the Dreamdery, but it's not enough. Many Dreamdery start teaming up on the Macabra and you jump out of hiding to stop it from getting hurt. After the event the rancher thanks you for getting to the bottom of the problem and gives you a Smeargle. He says he'll control his Dreamdery from now on. After the 4th gym you can go back to the ranch and you'll find a bunch of Dreamdery painting at easels. If you talk to Steven he'll tell you about the great artistic talent he found in his flock and ask you to help him decide which painting to auction in Vivace. You can walk around the fields looking at the paintings. After you choose Steven thanks you and gives you an Oran berry
Please don't fuck off. I'm actually super fucking interested in what /vp/ could come up with. Anybody that submits something that legitimately follows the rules I'll submit it for you.
the fakemon in this are great. probably the only game i've seen where they weren't abhorrent
I'd believe these were real mons. most are better than alot of gen 5/6
damn that sucks. It really would've made it feel unique as a boss fight
Yes, partially thanks to my autism. Its the perfect Pseudo, Sage's own living embodiment of destruction. If there's any Ubers outside of SpaceFug, it's Basilect.
and that damn fire golem
>it has a counter so its not uber
Just like Blaziken amirite? :^)
Is it seriously going to be nerfed, though? If anything, buff Erace by ... i dont know, giving it literally anything outside of fucking Iron Head
>all this fucking theorymonning when no one has played the game
this shit is part of what killed the project
people too lazy or unskilled to sprite or map think they are helping by revising a pokemon's moves for the 32nd time
you are fucking not
Would people want me to dump these ones? I have quite a few..
I love your work but I cannot stand that you shared a fan art that has the word "faggot" in it. It's not cool, not good language, and as an LGBT person, I feel extremely sad that this promising project would share something like that. I know the Internet is notorious for using shitty words, but please consider why this is wrong. Thank you.
Okay I'm out, here is template if anyone would like to make their own
Sage continues and thrives. Also Avidraco tries to come to Sage to stalk the numerous females there.
That demo, yeah. Next demo goes up to three badges because they're still making the game.
Shut your who're mouth
Fuck off Raptor you worthless piece of shit. Shitpost in Clover and hit on Digidex some more you waste of space.
We're going to redo them when we get to them, we have a lot of shit on our plate but it will happen. It'll be a lot easier now that we're off this board and away from people like >>24578377
>caring about shitposting on shitposting general the game
Sage ain't nothin like that shithole.
Also, I ain't got no hand in sage anymore, you don't have to worry about that ol raptor bogeyman. I will continue to shitposting on clover though because fuck em and their sorry ass meme game.
The vectol and vectol.2 pokemon menu sprites are done and you can see them on the sprite page. vectol's back and front sprite are done i think, but vectol.2's is being worked on right now so You're going to have to wait a bit longer for that.
We never stopped working on the game, however threads almost always devolve into shitposting before long. When that happens, we normally just let it die.
Alright guys, which 'mon is the best?
Also, is there an archive of all the survey results? I remember a lot of great ideas that were never voted in
Wow, never knew this guy was so good. Didn't bother playing her at first since her design is so shit
Carabugs aren't designed to be shit nor are they shit. Caracrust has some balk but no movepool. Carajoule is legit, and Caranox has uses.
Can't really say who underperforms though.
>red not being pure fighting
I dont know if pink should be psychic or fairy, both are fine. Actually yellow could also be Psychic because gold, but electric is such a popular element for superpowers
I need to redo some wallpapers. What should I do first?
i literally had nothing better to do except think about how much i've enjoyed pokemon sage thus far and feel guilty about having not contributed
so i decided to take a look through the wiki and scribble out a design for unfinished characters, starting with the elite four dragon member. thoughts?
I can't talk to this kid from this direction
Has this been fixed for 2.0?
Green eyes because it's very reptilian but also not as cliche as blue eyes white dragon. Also definitely want him to have blond hair because it makes him look more like a book nerd.
Also, I was thinking his outer gear should be mostly plain - black glasses/coat, tan/beige pants, silver buckle for his belt, and either a white or off-white shirt. Very literary, intentionally underdramatic. But then when he battles the coat comes off and he's got most of his colors on the tattoo arms and accessories.
I thought it was fitting with the whole author gimmick (dont judge a book by its cover, how weird trinkets tell more of a story than your general fashion sense). Also he ended up looking like Newt from Pacific Rim because I decided to go in a more modern direction with the fantasy element (Garth Nix and Neil Gaiman, if you can read my illegible handwriting)
I guess this counts as fanart for the most popular design for Sandy on the wiki so far
Also, a suggestion for her skintone; make her tanned except for the circular region at the top of her body that's shaded by her giant hat. It'd make for an interesting look, and it would also reflect just how much time she spends hanging around on sand.
Okay, I love it. I absolutely love it. This goes for both of them. Sandy is a great design and the one you've got there for Pendragon has quite a bit of character shine through a unique design. If you're actually interested in more directly contributing than posting things on here for us to pick up you can message me on skype at tydempty or reach out through any other channel we have.
Any way to open up mapping to crowd-sourcing? That'd go a long way in improving project workflow.
Like a program that you can make a map in, which gets imported into Pokemon Essentials with a script or something.
This kind of shit has probably been discussed before but I haven't looked at these threads in ages.
He's a Corporate scientist by trade, a former Shill for an oil company who reveals that the Team rocket-expy is a front of the company.
If not porygon evolutions, then Fossil/genetically augmented Pokemon.
heads up sage
we got someone taking our mon's
>Machamp evolves from machoke, itself evolves from Machop
>Dunkywunkr evolves from Dinkywink, itself evolving from ????
hurr so what
Gen 3, Roselia gave 1 EV. In gen 4 and on, it gives that EV with another stat as well. Roserade gives a 2/1 EV spread
Not even, Clash isn't taking board feedback into account for the champ.
Pokeman is in the lead heftily and Composer is in second. Last round is pick-one style survey between Pokeman and the Composer.
Skype and infinitychan. It's welcome to anyone willing to put up with 1000+messages on skype from multiple groups, being active enough for discussions and contributing, and anyone who thinks that MajoraZ is a faggot
I used to be in the Skype group, but I never could find a good way to contribute besides making a bunch of the code ready for the Showdown server. I still have no idea how that got put up, I never figured out how to do it.
What's there to do now? All I've heard is mapping and surveys being needed for the next release.
Mapping, dialogue, trainer teams, side quests, badge design submissions end in like two weeks, champ survey is ongoing, giving feedback for plot, calling majora an idiot because he's an idiot. Working on distros for routes, being active.
Be active and talk a lot, we still can use you.
Which person are you?
None of the active guys post these threads... I'm a lurker on Skype, I post these whenever big things are happening so that 1) you guys can remember that Sage exists, and 2) Sage can remember that /vp/ still exists. These threads aren't game changers, but rest assured, the Skype chats do notice, and even though the opinions you guys post aren't always the ones that the top brass goes with, they're definitely at least influenced by them. No one's gonna see this since the Sage thread is now saging (lel), but just know, I'll be posting these threads whenever big things are happening. Cheers.
