Hi guys, I'm feeling a lot better thanks for your concern and support.

So last week I talked about making a non-gaming announcement this week. After 6 years of being with my girlfriend I proposed to her this weekend! and she said yes! I actually made her a very small game as part of the proposal since I am a game developer after all. She loved it and we are very happy, next step is to plan the wedding >.< haha so lets get back to games!

Okay so PTD 2, this week I'm gearing up to work all out on getting this ready. Like always I like to be very open about what I'm working on so I will post a progress list of what I have to do and will be updating it all this week as I make progress on it.

Party Selection Screen (100%)- Slightly refined, added new sorting options that you guys requested, plus additional settings to each sorting option as seen in the pictures below.

New Party Screen Sorting Options
Showing the sub options for sorting options
Pokemon Upgrade Screen (60%) - Adding the two suggestions that you guys requested, being able to change your pokemon in the screen and showing the pokemon's stats. Other additions are showing the nickname of the pokemon along with its name, showing the gender by symbol and background color. Also you can see that you can see your abilities and their description and also change them before the level. Finally I added a new pokedex button that will take you to the pokedex information of this pokemon. It will be more detailed than in ptd 1. You can see a work in progress shot below. (Note: I'm using pokemon with random moves in them for testing purposes, you can't learn these move on Onix without hacking)

Newer version, female onix, pokedex button, and ability window

Pokemon Store Screen (0%)
Level 1 (0%)
Any attacks that need to be modified (50%) - Setting up the new stacking debuff mechanics. No longer will stat changing attack run out. They will also stack so you have to keep applying it to get the max effect. Watch the video below for a small preview. The graphic will get slightly bigger and stack as the debuff stacks. Also your pokemon will prioritize targets that have the lowest stack or no stack at all.


Level User Interface (0%)
Saving (0%)
Loading (0%)

During the week I will keep adding more things and updating what I'm working on. This will give you a better look at where I am at with getting the release done.

That is all I have for today, keep checking back for more. As always let me know what you think!

  2. Is ptd 2 going to have breeding?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. how will it work? u go to poekmon center place the two pokemon u want to breed then wait for 30 min then u can take the pokemon out of pokemon center to use it once more, then wait even more for the egg to hatch maybe 1 day is my guess? ALSO can u make new pokemon, by breeding two different types of pokemon like a dragonite with a gyarados = gydragodos? or something like that?

  6. I'm not sure if you addressed this earlier, but do you plan to add diamond/pearl pokemon that evolve from pokemon in red/blue and gold/silver (e.g. porygon-z, rhyperior, magmortar)?

  7. Do you intend to offer any more polls for Mystery Gifts?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes, most likely after the first mystery gift is about to come out.

      Delete
  8. will the proposal game ever be made public or is it too personal?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's pretty personal but I might post screen shots.

      Delete
    2. i cant blame u for that but, would there be a way to make another version of the game that is less personal?






      krookodile king
      p.s.will u make the other options for mystery gifts (axew,deino,sandile) other mystery gifts?

  9. Looks solid congrats on the engagement! Also can you address the trade evolution so that there is a way to cancel it? Maybe trading while holding an ever stone?

  11. Sam You sly dog. haha jks, congrats dude. also glad you are feeling better. just a quick question. will we be getting different avatars to play as in PTD2 or will they carry over from PTD1?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Good on ya SAM my main man from the UK.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Also sam what are the Level User Interface, Pokemon Store Screen, Pokemon Upgrade Screen? What are they used for?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. those are all for the 1v1 mode, different screens that will be in that mode

      Delete
    2. Presumably, the level user interface is something about selecting what difficulty/level you want to play, the Pokemon store would be where you can buy more Pokemon, and the Pokemon upgrade screen would be where you upgrade them XD

  14. Congratulations man.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Congratulations Sam. I know from recent experience (about a year ago) that the time of planning, and maybe moving, is a wondefull and unique time. Enjoy it!
    And I'm looking forward on your progress on PTD2, but keep your priorities straight :-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sam, Can you make Tm/Hm price from the powerful that move?
    i mean like this:
    The move that is attack do bad the price is 9.000 Pokedollar
    The move that is attack do normal the price is 10.000 Pokedollar
    The move that is have powerful attack the price is 11.000 Pokedollar

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i agree sam tht sounds like a great idea

      Delete
    2. Or maybe weak moves could cost 5000 Pokedollars, a normal-damage attack can cost 10,000 pokedollars, and a powerful move can cost 15,000 Pokedollars. That way if you have it as a weak attack costs something like 9000 and a strong attack only costs 2000 more or so, that person would just easily earn 2000 in about 10-15 (maybe 20) minutes. Just a thought.

    3. I have an idea! When PTD 2 1v1 Mode is out, I will have a fresh caught Mew auction! They are all regular, but some are
      hacked. Let me know whatever kinds of Pokémon (no Legendaries or Shiny/Shadow (except Missingno.)) you want me to giveaway! I can also give Starter Pokémon! Just don't try to ask me for my entire Pokémon Storage (most of it is hacked anyway.). :)

  57. Hi Sam,

    I've got a idea like this: If you have finished 1vs1 mode :p
    Then you can make a match. Where you will have a clann for a month. With the clann you must to beat other clans. The first clan will win snd coins, but you can have this challenge 3 times in the year. I hope you liked it (if you read it :p)

  82. Hi Sam, congrats on your proposal! I do have a few questions, though. Will Eevee be obtainable in PTD 2? I just want to know if I will need to catch 5 Eevees in PTD 1 in order to get all the shiny Eeveelutions in PTD 2. Also, will there be a separate Pokemon Center for 1 and 2, or will it be the same for both games? Lastly, some suggestions on moves to fix would be making Safeguard apply to all Pokemon just like Reflect and Light Screen do, having Baton Pass work on Aqua Ring and Substitute, and a distant reminder to include Blast Burn, Frenzy Plant, Hydro Cannon, and Draco Meteor when we eventually get to Blackthorn, which I know is very far in the future. Congrats again!

  110. Nice job on the engagement Sam! Hope it goes well. I have 3 questions to ask.
    1. Will we be able to catch Unova pokemon since Zorua is the 1st mystery gift?
    2. Can the chances for SnD Coins in the daily gift go up to like 10 percent? (only on rare)
    3. In the story line, there should be another evil pokemon along with Mewthree. I would suggest Shadow Lugia. Could that please go into the story line?
    Thanks ahead of time.
