The forum have had a decent amount of lotteries by now, and there was even a time when there was a "capture-pokemon-and-bring-them-to-the-gts-race" but I prefer creativity, so I have decided to host the first P3D skin creating contest. Time to rely on your skill rather than luck or speed, and show your creativity & skill at spriting. Go for the win, or just make a skin for the heck of it, and make the choice of skins larger as a whole for the community.
The theme for the skin contest is Video Game Characters. Make your skin according to the theme & I will be judging the skins.
When the skins are judged, there are two things that will give a score between 1 and 100, so you can get a score between 2 & 200 and these are:
1. How well the skin resembles the character 2. How detailed the skin is
These are the rules:
1. You must create an original skin, made by you...
So this is a major task we need help doing since it can't be automated and needs far too much human input for us to be able to put time into it while continuing other parts of the projects.
Move sets are extremely critical to the development of a strong competitive battling community and we definitely don't want the move selections to be its downfall.
There are also other portions of the data that are either out of date or something so we will need help with that too
Here are the main portions:
TMs/HMs: By far the most complex and difficult portion of this project. There are going to be 170 TMs as well as 10 HMs and each pokemon (minus a dozen or so that cant learn most if not all TMs and will be dealt with by internal code not the data files) needs to have these set
For each pokemon and TM combination we need to decide if that pokemon can learn that TM
I have made a Google Spread sheet to help with this
Along the top are the TMs and along the left are the Pokemon
We hope that we can build a community there in the future as well, posting images and text posts on there. The developers (me included) will browse that subreddit regularly so if you want to ask us something or suggest a feature there and want feedback from other redditors as well, there you go.
I will post random pictures, technical infos and other stuff there as well.
I hope you guys keep having fun with the game.
