Update on 11.3

Hey everyone!

It's been a loooong time since I last updated Pokémon: Survival Island... But a new one is just around the corner! Here's a summary of the changes.

Gen IV and V are here! (Sort of)

The first and biggest change, which has been asked for since before the first release, is Pokémon from Gens IV and V. You can now select them as starter Pokémon, although you're still limited to non-legendary base forms. They won't show up in the wild yet, but I do have plans on getting them in there eventually.

Crafting has a new look!

If there is one thing that has ever needed improvement in Pokémon: Survival Island, it's the crafting mechanics. I mean, they're pretty much the mechanic that the rest of the game grows from, so it's deserving of some attention. Instead of crafting from several different tables, now you open up the crafting interface from the workbench to create all the items you need. The recipes are still the same, so if you're stumped, you can refer to these pages here. The image guides are also included in the download for handy reference.

Debug Mode

Did you get stuck inside a wall due to a silly bug? Well, you can now enable Debug Mode from the Options menu. With Debug Mode on, you can hold CTRL to walk through walls, avoid wild Pokémon encounters in grass, use HMs without needing a Pokémon that knows it, add Pokémon to your party, edit the stats of existing Pokémon... The possibilities are endless! WARNING: Some Debug Mode options can seriously mess your game up, so if you're not sure about what something does, save first, then consult the Pokémon Essentials documentation: Pokemonessentials.wikia.com

Screen Resolution

There's now an option to set the screen size to 1024x768 - twice the size of the original! There are still a few bugs with it, but it should make a big difference for those looking for a full-screen option.

Bug Squashing

I've fixed a bunch of bugs in the game, ranging from getting stuck in walls (sorry!) to Pokémon starting without any practical moves (Magikarp and Ralts, I'm looking at you). Hopefully, it'll make for a much smoother gameplay experience.

The Future

While time travel may indeed be an upcoming feature, there are still some things to wait on.First, is a bigger world map. It takes a lot of effort to design the tilesets, backgrounds, and maps that expand the game. Right now, there's the Temperate and Mountain regions, which will be followed by the Swamp, Badlands, Glacier, Ocean and Rainforest regions and their respective Temples. The idea is that once the overworld map is complete, then I'll add more and more "rabbit-hole" locations for players to explore. These will contain useful items, breeding grounds, additional base camps and Legendary Pokémon.
After that, I'll add areas to encounter Gen IV and V Pokémon, likely as islands separate from the main one.
As for Features, I don't plan on adding anything new - just tweaking what already exists, or adding additional customization options. So no multiplayer, sorry.

That's it for this news update! For those looking for an ETA of the next release, please be patient. All I can say right now is "soon", because I literally can't test this game enough!

I figured that since they announced the release date for Pokémon X and Y, it'd be appropriate to announce the new version of Survival Island.

I have a 1 question. How come there is not a healing table?

It's because there's not supposed to be any complex mechanical devices on an island. You've crashed and salvaged what you can to survive. The blue bed tarp in your starting cave is where you sleep to heal :)

Hey, is there something I've done wrong? Because I downloaded just the most recent file, yet I can't access any temple or anything - it's just the temperate zone. There's a black space where it should be. What have I done?

You have done nothing wrong. I have the same problem and the developer said that you can teleport to the temple or anwhere else with the debug menu in the meantime he also said that he is working on a fix for this bug : Moddb.com

How do you teleport in this way? I go to debug, press control and walk into the darkness, yet nothing happens.

You turn Debug on and then you have to reopen the normal menu where you can open pokedex or the bag in this menu is a new option called debug if you open that one of the options should be warp to map than you only have to choose the map where you can see the stonetemple on the picture

Hey guys if your having the problem where the game crashes for windows 8, do the following:
Go to control panel>system>advanced system settings>performance(go to the settings there)>Data Execution Prevention. Turn on DEP for all programs, then add the game.exe file to the exceptions. Apply and the game should work now! :)
Dunno about other versions but it should fix them too.

This game has a very good base to become an absolute MASTERPIECE! Just some advices: add a "Load Game" button on the menu (Because now I have to close the game every time I want to load back a save) and a turbo function to speed up battles (the animations are very slow).
