After a bit of a delay we have a new version for you, and its a BIG one! This version includes an all new original area, some fresh looks at some existing areas and the grand return of several MAJOR engine features!
The big new area is called Diamond Dive and is located past some new routes south of Cherrygrove City. Explore through a humongous cavern, dive through twisting depths and then climb up steep cliffs, all while encountering many Pokémon only found here, all in search of a secret of mythic proportions!
In addition to the all new locations, we have also remade the routes leading up to Victory Road! Routes 22, 26, 27 and 28 have all been redone to the layouts of HeartGold & SoulSilver. In addition the previously not included Route 23 has been redesigned into a massive uphill climb for trainers from both Kanto and Johto to prove they have completed the gym challenge!
On top of that, for those of you who have you own vision of how Pokémon should be played we are happy to bring back the Game Mode and Content Pack features! While these features were never really gone, they were hard to find and required players to do extra steps to activate. Now you can select Content Packs in the new options menu on the Main Save select screen. Also everytime you start a new game you will get prompted to select which GameMode you want to use! You can find Content Packs and Game Modes on our resources page! If you feel something is missing you can upload your own Content Pack, or reach out to the community on our Discord!
Another major feature is the return of Battle Animations and the implementation of Switch Style in battles! Only a few moves are fully animated, but the underlying system has been reworked to make it easier for us to implement more animations in future versions!
The final Major feature I will highlight here is the Daily GameJolt Login Bonus! Each day, if you connect to your GameJolt save you will receive a gift! Over a 30 day cycle you will receive a variety of different gift, including money, various PokéBalls, Evolution Stones, special Pokémon, and even a special previously banned item making its grand return!
This isn't even everything in the version! Without details some other noteworthy things:
Updated shiny rates for special encounters
11 previously unobtainable Pokémon
Over a dozen new or updated script commands and constructs
A new person to visit in Kolben Tower
New skyboxes for all daytimes and weathers
Existing models replaced with new Voxel Models
MANY bug fixes!
You can find the full, detailed changelog here!
Hope you guys enjoy this update!
