My God! It's been what...almost a month since I've been online? Gah. I was seriously starting to get withdrawal symptoms. I was starting to...see...things... Anywhoo, I do have good excuses for not being here for so long, none of which being that I got bored with the Daiche Region. In fact, this whole topic will be a reprise on the old thread (which I have already locked, since I didn't want to be accused of grave digging). Yes, pretty much all the Info Sheets I put up will be very similar to the old thread, but I do have changes, nice changes, I hope (like shading on the text - more on that later), and a few more sprited important characters (like the Professor). Also! the first original (non-Starter or Legendary) Pokemon for the Daiche Region (first seen in Route 02) Oh, yes! Almost forgot! The excuses. Achem. #1 - I went on holiday to see my best friend (whom I haven't seen in almost two years), for three weeks. #2 - When I got back, our internet was offline, and stayed offline for the better part of a week and a half. Ah well, at least I was able to do this and get the Professor all sprited up. Well, here it is. Hyakunen no Machi reprised. I know, I know, the maps are pretty much the same (can you read the 'To Route 28' at the bottom of the town map alright?) Still, I have the Pokedex done (woo!). Basically it's the gen 3 or 4 (can't remember), with a few changes. The black bit on the left side is a holographic projector which displays the Pokemon you are reading about. The bit on the other side, is a holographic map projector with displays the locations of the Pokemon you encounter (the orange bit next to that is the lid-like thing that you have to flip up). The screen in the middle gives the other information, i.e. size, cry, the blurp etc... The Professor is named Cypress. It was either that or Bladdernut. I chose Cypress for obvious reasons. Isn't his Hawaiian shirt cool? But a real bitch to sprite. Please don't ask me to shade it. It was hard enough getting the stupid pattern right. Especially in the Overworld. Anyway, some vital stats: He's in his mid-40's. He has forest green hair, and navy eyes. He is an expert in ancient Pokemon legends and myths, and his main Pokemon he has who helps around the lab is an Alakazam. He is also the adopted father to two girls (his niece, the daughter of his younger twin sister, and an infant also orphaned at birth whom he found on the beach (technically, he was given her by a Suicune, but that is a whole other story). He gives you your first Pokemon, and he lives in the house above the Lab (the other one is where the Hero/ine lives). You will meet his 'daughters' as you travel, and they give you advice and things, sort of like what Prof. Rowan's assistant does. Oh yes! I finally figured out how to do the shading of the text. I was doing the 'Note #1' the hard way (cutting and pasting the individual letters), when I made a mistake and cut and pasted a letter, then shifted it to the side. I then did the same thing twice more and figured out that directly to the side, beneath and diagonal, made the correct shading. I was sooo chuffed. Anyway, please review, and comment, I can't post any more if people don't comment. Oh! One last thing...judging from the lack of commenting after my last post on my old thread, I assume it means no-one liked the last town I put in, Gonen no Machi. Which is a real shame, since I kinda liked it, a cute little town, lost in the forest, next to a huge lake. If anyone did have objections to it, please tell me, so I can change the map as appropriate. (the old thread is called 'Daiche Region and other Sprite Art').
