Route 16 WIP UPD3

Just wanted to get some opinions on one of the longest routes in-game, so long that citizens of the island have civilized here and turned it into a Route-City.

The main problem I am having is backwards stairs, so the player walks down the cliff. I have yet to find out how I'm going to do this because as of now it looks pretty awkward and I can't find any backward-stairs tiles.

Edit: Thanks to :iconmidnitez-remix: and :iconminorthreat0987: I'v gotten rid of the awkward stairs but I don't know, it still looks a bit weird. And those who've seen the previous file will notice the overall changes.

Edit2: Major changes to the rest of the route, still working on the Southwestern part though which might take a while seeing how I need to get it to connect to Route 17.

Credits to :iconriansky: for the tree tiles

Will you be adding anything into that bottom left empty corner space?
Nuzamaki90's avatar
Of course! It's the part of the route that connects to Route 17. That part of the route will be available to the player after they defeat the fourth gym.

Cause it could use a path or something.

Lol yeah, the empty space is a bit awkward, but it will be blocked off by construction OWs as a part of a story event.
Midnitez-REMIX's avatar
Well then make sure to add some construction tiles as well.

And I assume you'll get rid of the gatehouse at the bottom since it connects to nothing? As for back stairs, these are the only tilesets I know of that have them: minorthreat0987.deviantart.com... epicday.deviantart.com/art/Pub... .

The gate house is just there as a placeholder for something I didn't wanna show as of yet since it's not completed and I didn't want to add to the empty space :P

You see, Neo City is one of the most technologically advanced cities in Rasen and Hoenn, and Route 16 is just outside of Neo City.

What I'm trying to do is instead of doing the basic gatehouse, I'll put a more futuristic twist to it.

Futuristic such as?

Think of New Domino City from Yugioh 5D's

Why not leave the stairs flat to make it a slope?
Game freak using this kind of palette either went simplistic(but ugly stair) or went for the slope when they could get away with it.

Looking pretty nice so far.

I actually could try that! Thanks a bunch!

I spent so many hours playing palette based games i start to get a few of the tricks.

Nothing gets me more fired up then a good sprite based game.
Remember dungeon keeper? <3

Lol I didn't even think people still remembered that game, I never got to play the original, but I did play Dungeon Keeper 2 & 3

Again, thanks for the help, I'v been testing it for the past few minutes (lol) and I think I might add a little sound effect to make going down the slope a bit more fun and livelier.

Are you going to be multi platform? Or will i have to wine your game? ;)
Nuzamaki90's avatar
RMXP is compatible with Windows and through a little editing it can be compatible with Mac too :D

It's a fangame maker's dream to put their game on consoles or handhelds, and hopefully one day, we'll have that capability.

I'm on linux. xD
guess i will have to use wine to get it running.

Start by making something awesome first. :3
If it is awesome enough everyone will get it regardless of system.
If you need to brainstorm, feel free to ask me.

I'm a creative little bastard. I just lack programming skills. :p
