Hey Guys,

Thanks for the feedback on the last post. As a result of that we'll be bringing back poke polls as they seem to be very popular. More on that soon.

1.8 is trucking along, not far off I hope as things seem to be working pretty well in it so far.

Trainers are now going and you'll see there are no more of those nasty purple boxes for items; they are all going too!

Also I want to start replacing the old trainer models (which look pretty bad these days) with a bunch of custom steve textures. One idea is to have a weekly competition where the top 3 entries will be added to the game (we'll do it by trainer type each week ie first week Fisherman) and the top entry would get a free sash. Sound off in the comments if you think that's a good idea or if you have a better!

1.8 Update Progress

Hey guys,

Image
Thought I'd just share what's up with 1.8. Seems like we're mostly there. Everything is rendering, battles are working, tile entities and GUI seem to be good.
Image
Moeboy's finishing up some json files for us so that blocks and items render correctly and there's one more bit of AI to finish off but we may well be in a state to get a release out soon!

On another note, I'm thinking of reintroducing pokemon polls to give us some guidance on which pokemon to add in upcoming versions. Let me know what you think?

1.8 Bugs

Hai minions. And people. And those EIGHTY OTHER PEOPLE WHO MESSAGED ME OFFERING PIZZA.

Yes. It was there as a joke. You don't actually have to send me a pizza >.> Thanks for the offer though <3


So, what's new? Well. If you've been keeping up with the forums, you'll know that we've taken on a 1.8 branch and begun that update. Keep up with MrMs updates here We've been staying in contact with Sponge, so hopefully with our 1.8 releases we'll be seeing some servers too. (Remember if you're a capable developer, you can hop in on this.) We'll likely make 1.8 rather open, so we'll release offhand broken builds hoping you'll get involved with that bug reporting. The sooner we get 1.8 out of the way, the better.

The Pixelmon launcher - We've had some great feedback on out first launcher release, as well as some good bug reports, and some pixpacks already made up for you guys to try out! (I'll add one at the end on this post and a few more later). There's lots of improvements we want to do, and there's a possibility of auto-install with Pixelmon if we get a decent CDN working with us! (Else we're looking around $2100 a month at the very least). Quote from Blood - "Sponge 1.1 will be our next major release and include a bunch of features for server/plugin devs"

Pixel Utilities! - Do any of you use it? Well you all will soon. Pixel Utilities is a sidemod adding items and features onto base Pixelmon. Started by AndWhat5, he's given us the go ahead to merge this sidemod into Pixelmon for 1.8 - If you want to see what PU mostly is, you can find a page for it on our wiki. PU has actually been a staple of Pixelmon for quite a while now, and has actually brought developers to us through it. From decoration blocks to coins and Armour, you'll likely find it a nice addition to both your single player worlds and servers. Feel free to follow Andnub on twitter <3

Donations! - It's been asked for so much before, we've always been wanting to do it, and it's finally here! *Dramatic music* The donation sash! You've seen the Pixelmon devs drag it out maybe, and just maybe you've wanted one for yourself. Well now you can get it. Just head over to the Donations page, make sure you have your Minecraft character linked, and make a minimum donation. Next time you're in a server/single player you'll see yourself with that sexy Pokeball toting sash! What's more is in later development we'll be looking at colour selection! And maybe we'll look at something better for those hardcore donators later on huh?

Halloween peoples! - We haven't forgotten about our Halloween Haunter winners. Don't forget to add your character to your profile! We'll be releasing information on how to obtain your special Haunter shortly.

Le streamers - Recently I noticed people streaming Pixelmon, and it's hilarious to watch people learn. So why not follow AnaBooo or KingTut to experience the same comedy? xD

Stop mod reposts! - As you know, we're closed source, All Rights Reserved, and very anti-redistribution. If it's ever crossed your mind as to why, #stopmodreposts is a great example. Check out their website, get behind this movement!

Sidemod updates - SoP has been updated, available on the downloads page. GTS will be seeing an update soon, and as soon as we hire an exorcist to rid GameShark of its current curse, we'll be releasing that out to you guys too!
