Oh boy. It's been a long time, and I apologise. Life happened, as did some burnout around the middle. But we're finally back in business, and I'm sincerely going to work on getting the next patch out in under a year this time Anyway, without further ado, here's the download and the patch notes!
New Things: - LOFAF is now available! You can travel through Route 17 to reach it, where you can challenge the Denizen and go on a Safari to catch all sorts of Sburbmon. - Added the following Sburbmon: Rammom, Bicyclops, Crabdad, Mothergrub, Dragonmom, Spidermom, Goatdad, Seahorsedad, Gl'bgolyb, Feferi line, Porrim line, Jade line, Maplehoof line, Uranium Imp, Iguana, Nanna, Grandpa, Dave's Bro, Rose's Mom. Additionally, Trickster John, Jane, Jake, Dirk, or Roxy can be obtained if you find the Sucker Stone hidden in one of the new areas. - TMs are now reusable! - There's a new ingame trade on Route 18. It's for a new Sburbmon you haven't been able to obtain yet~
Updated Things: - LOCAS, the Battlefield, and the Forest have new music - The Forest and Route 12 have received visual updates - The area art shown when entering LOCAS/LOCAH/Forest have been updated - All Sburbmon's TM learnsets have been edited for coherence. Everything should make sense now (eg. Kanaya can no longer learn Flamethrower, all GTs can Fly, etc). - Grist prices have been adjusted in the LOHAC Stock Exchange. - Several sprites have been cleaned up and edited for canonicity. - Buffed levels in LOTAK Tower a bit Bugfix Things: - Fixed a bug that caused Spikes to freeze the game - Fixed GT Vriska attempting to evolve into GT Horuss - Fixed RoboRufioh having a null ability if it evolved from a Cute Charm Rufioh - Fixed +Speed natures having incorrect stat colouring - Fixed it so that the Gas Mask flag is only set when you obtain it, not just beating Crowbar - Fixed VS Seeker text - Fixed VS Seeker animations being missing - Fixed errors with movement permissions in LOCAS and south of LOWAS - Minor text fixes - Minor map fixes
I think that's everything. As for next patch, I've got two goals lined up. Minor goal is to finish everything needed for the Scratch and Kernel stones. Major goal is Prospit. Prospit will be patch 0.6.0.0, and the stones will either be linked into that one or will be 0.5.5.0. I'll have a more detailed task list up in maybe a week or so. Thanks again for hanging around, until next time!
Oh, also, if you have any friends that like spriting, send 'em this way. We can always use the help!
Me again, did you know that if you refresh map, one of the cutables trees of Battlefield can disapper, it can be a very dangerous bug, like cross the entire game whiout Sylladex, and at Scratch's Mansion you HAVE to verrify your Sylladex, not to mention when you catch a Sburbmon...
Alrighty, so, as for the next task list. I'm hoping to get a small patch out next before Propsit. Should have a lot of bugfixes, and I was also hoping to get Routes 12/13/14 opened up. These are the sprites we'd need to make that hapen.
GT Kankri - backsprite - party icon GrubLatula - backsprite Latula - backsprite - party icon GT Latula - backsprite - party icon Aranea - backsprite GT Aranea - backsprite GrubMeenah - backsprite Meenah - backsprite - party icon GT Meenah - backsprite - party icon PM - backsprite - party icon Bec Blanche - backsprite
New Things: - You can now fully explore routes 12/13/14. - Added the following Sburbmon: GrubDamara, Kankri line, Meulin line, Latula line, Aranea line, Meenah line, PM line, AR, DD, CD, and HB
Updated Things: - Added route theme #3 - Revamped and cleaned up various sprites - Revamped the text shown when Scratch evaluates your Sylladex - All Captchacards have proper names and graphics now - Updated the back of the trainer card - Updated area flavour text shown on the Town Map - Rebalanced exp gain
Bugfix Things: - Fixed Dragonmom having Dragonsprite's sprite (oops) - Fixed Calliope's bugged moveset - Removed Rapper Edmond's clone in LOHAC Plaza and replaced him with Rapper Leonard - Moved a trainer in Echidna's gym so you can't cheat and skip the ice puzzle - Fixed text glitch when finding coins on the ground - Fixed which FM Echidna says she's giving you - Fixed all surf and fishing tables - Fixed the pathing of Felt Grunts in LOTAK Tower - Fixed certain tiles at the Frog Temple counting as land instead of water - Minor text fixes - Minor map fixes
And here's an update on where we're at for the evo stones:
Seeing as the meme trio is pretty much gonna slowly become accessible, I tried imagining some level-up movesets for them; the level sequences themselves I just took 'em from the birbs. I listed the type, ability and base stats that are already on the checklist for convenience:
Kernelstones aren't available yet!! All of the sprites listed in Twix's post under "Update on where we're at for the evo stones" need to be finished before we can implement the Kernel Stone and Scratch Stone into the game. Adding those stones will be our next big update, hopefully!! If not that, then the next big update will be adding Prospit (Saffron City). Maybe the next big update will be... both?? But regardless, that's where we're at right now.
