Hi! I'm really interested in this project and would like to offer help!
I'm an artist (not that experienced with pixel art, but I'm trying) and a writer! I can work on the dialogues or drawing characters!

Since this project is open source, is there a Github page where people can see the progress of the plugins and/or contribute?

@Aloe Guvner Not at the moment, but we will upload it as soon as the Engine is Stable (to avoid buggy release)

Whereas if you want to help, you are welcome to join our team.

Thank you for the offer to join the team, but I'll decline for now. Personally, I haven't played anything in the Pokemon series since Red/Blue but it is a cool concept.

I think that what you're pulling together is wonderful, and will help expand the types of games that people can create with RPG Maker.

That being said, I think it would help you and the project to become Open Source. Many people (myself included) may be willing to contribute to a plugin without being on the team, this is the central concept of open source. At this moment, there is no better platform to facilitate open source than Github, where anyone can contribute and create a Pull Request.
For more information on what Open Source means, I encourage you to read this guide.

Currently, the title post of this thread says "Plugins... Coding" without any indication of the progress so far (even with not much progress - that's OK! The goal should be transparency). With putting the plugins on GitHub, even unfinished, people can see the progress for themselves.

If your worry is to 'release' something that isn't quite ready yet, then simply do not phrase it as a 'release'. Specifically, you are opening the source of the project to the community (open source). To further enforce that idea, the pre-release versions would start with zero - you can use the same versioning conventions that RPG Maker uses which is called Semantic Versioning. For example, you would start with v0.1.0 if it's not ready to be used yet.

Of course, if you don't wish the project to be open source, you don't have to, as the project manager it is your choice. However, I would be curious to learn why you created a poll on this thread if you weren't intending to make it open source.

@Aloe Guvner as talking of Transparency, I will just edit the Thread for Plugin Progress.

Secondly, I wanted to know what is people preference, just the Free Plugin or Open Source Contribution. Obviously the Plan is to Host the Plugins on GitHub (or similar website)

I can upload the MM_BattleEngine.js but I was thinking to upload a somewhat working Plugin, so are GitHub page just don't suddenly fills with 100s of Pull request, and People screaming on the piece of ****.

Well good luck to you on it, I'll keep an eye out and if I see it on Github I'll look to see if I can contribute to it.

Hey, I wouldn't mind helping out where I can.
I'm the jack of all trades, master of none kinda guy. I work best as a refiner, I'm very experienced as an editor in PS. While I'm bad at starting from scratch I can take a basic design and improve it very well. I have a LOT of experience as a grammar checker. I know some JS, don't really count on me for that. I've written a few stories myself, so I can help with script writing (not javascript), and I love mapping (though I will not claim to be good at it at all)
My best skills are research (I literally have a bachelors degree in this), so I'm very good at finding solutions to per-existing problems.
And creative work arounds, so I'm very good at creating solutions to pre-existing problems (Mostly through extraneous convoluted algorithms though)
If you need to see proof of any of these I mentioned then let me know, I'll send something to you.
I will say ahead of time though, I have a busy life so I can't devote a-lot of time to this project, but I'll be happy to do what I can.

PS your mentioned you were working on fishing I love fishing, I think I can help with this, what type of bait are you using (does it look like a tiny magic carp?) also I hope you're using lure balls, you cant call yourself a fisherman without lure balls!
In all seriousness though, if this is still an issue I do think I could help.

When I first saw this project some month ago, I actully expected this to stick a bit to the original games like the old Essentials for XP.:kaomad2:

Gey I heard Pokemon Essentials was shut down by Nintendo. What is going to happen with your project now?

@ShinGamix @FoxySeta
they can't shut this down as long as he doesn't use the name or the resources from ninetendo.
But that is also why this hasn't got far yet, because it is too much work to create all pictures legally instead of ripping them.

Thanks for the answer! I'm pretty sure some of the screenshots do show some ripped resource (like those bulbasaur sprites), though. Also, may I know if you mods have any problem with posting projects containing ripped resources as well? Cuz I kinda wanted to do the same with a maker for another series.

So with the C+D from Nintendo, have you still a desire to continue this? Or is it it done? I think you can still pull it, but you might want to remove the Pokemon stuff and just use the RTP monsters AND MAYBE tweak the mechanics.

According to his profile, the OP has not been on here since August 13th 2018. It might be safe to assume this project is discontinued by them.

Folks, if anyone sends you a message inviting you to add their API to your game, please report them. We don't want people spamming our members asking them to add stuff to their games for their own (or others') benefit.
I'm listening to iiluminaughtii talking about the secrets behind shady businesses and scams. Meanwhile I'm writing a fanfic about Sephiroth from FF7, one specifically for my stepmom. I'll get to give it to her, too, because my boss said I could take the holidays off! Dec. 22-27 I will be in Orlando, and maybe Fort Myers too, visiting my dad and stepmom!
Of course, I bought a handful of games on the Steam Black Friday sale. Will I try them? Will I complete any? Who knows...
I don't really have any neat updates today about how I screwed up programming... But if you want to observe the intensenes of me programming, then you can check out my stream :)

No more spam from me today, I promise! Just wanted to upload this, people have been giving me feedback that my weapon sprites (which were RTP) clashed badly with my battlers for ages, so today I finally took the plunge and updated them! Really happy with how they came out :D :D
