So i've spend much of the last week working on sidequests and planning the rest of the game out.
there should be around 20 of them in 0.7b. each granting various kinds
of bonuses. TMs, equipment, evolution stones, pokemon. etc. plus you get
a trophy for completing each one.
Although the storyline is linear, the sidequests make it feel a lot more open.
i've pretty much finalized the storyline, contact me (through pokecommunity PM, or twitter, or facebook-
if you want me to tell
you the plot of the game from start to end, it'll get massively spoiled,
but on the other hand, I need thoughts about the story.
So I've done some minor updates to the map. Mainly layout changes.
removing much of the planned second region and combining it with the
first region to create one large region. I've pretty much nailed down
where each legendary pokemon will be encountered.
Ill most definetly tweak it more as the project progresses, but they'll probably only be small additions and modifications.

white areas = Completed (meaning it's coming in 0.7b)
light gray = Mapped (it's mapped, but not scripted, and wont be appearing in v0.7b)
dark gray = Nope. (doesnt exist as of yet)
I decided to change the names of some areas. for various reasons.
Tasto Creek -> Aurum Creek [because tasto didnt mean anything, i took a word. added a vouel to the end of it.]
Resta Falls -> Leaky Falls [resta doesnt actually mean anything... same way as tasto]
Mt Sitor -> Mt Atlas [not sure if sitor meant anything, but now altas. named after greek god.]
Imbibo lake -> Ros lake [IIRC imbibo means drink in latin. but imbibo is a clumsy and hard to pronounce lake. Ros means wet. and is simple.]
Amplus City -> Magnus City [amplus was a fine name in itself,
but i realised 3 of the first 5 cities you come across start with A.
Aurum. Arbor. Amplus. might confuse players. plus magnus sounds badass.
both amplus and magnus mean large in latin.
Cave of the Dammed -> Silent Ruins [more ruins than cave now... too many goddamn caves in the game...]
Funfact: each city in the game is a latin word.
Aurum Town = Gold (because main character's default name is gold)
Ventus City = Wind (because flying gym)
Brevis Town = Small (because it is small and has nothing of interest)
Arbor City= Tree (because it's next to a forest.)
Magnus City= Large (because it's the biggest city)
Ferreus Town= Steel/Hard (because it's next to a steel mine and steel gym)
Mors Village = Death (because of ghost gym and graveyard)
Portus City = Port (well... because theres a port)
So in v0.7b heres what pokemon should be avalaible:
Eevee, Starter, Sentret, Pidgey, Weedle/Caterpie, Nidoran, Zubat,
Bellsprout/Oddish, Psyduck(alpha), Geodude, Spinarak, Pineco, Poliwag,
Mareep, Abra, Diglett, Grimer(alpha), Tyrogue, Pichu, Smoochum,
Elekid/Magby, Electrike(omega), Drowzee, Exeggcute, Shroomish,
Natu, Lotad, Snubbull, Sandshrew/Phanpy, Hoothoot, Houndour, Seedot,
Gastly, Houndour, Mankey. - theres a chance that a couple wont make it
if i decide to change their locations.
Heres some corrupted. you might notice updated sprites for a few of them.

So in additon to
I've now expanded to social media. ill be posting updates there too. and
you can use them to ask me questions. post comments. discussions
So all this talk about v0.7b probably has you curious as to when it will be done... All I can say right now is Soon.
But I'll be putting beta versions out before v0.7b so people can bugtest
them. I'll be releasing a beta version ( beta72 ) relatively soon in
fact. So stay tuned.
