    @Galladester: Maybe you could organize the people on the site who are part of other communities and give them the tools to advertise (userbars, signatures etc.), keeping log of where we're advertising and such.

    @Grax: How familiar are you with Ruby and/or Poccil's Essentials?

    @ImmunityBow:
    0% familiarity with Ruby, but since I know Java, C and C++ fairly well, I'm pretty sure I can pick it up very quickly.
    That's why I wanted to know what type of help you guys need on the programming front (perhaps a sample code of the more complex stuff to see where I stand), but Konrad isn't responding to PMs.

    Yeah, getting a hold of konrad is kind of like trying to eat things through your nose. Hard and painful, but sometimes possible. I think.

    Well, if you can get familiar I can tell you things that Konrad isn't working on yet. Coding of the abilities and items is fairly important and not started yet.

    Abilities: http://www.pokemontopaz.net/forums/s...opaz-Abilities
    Items: http://www.pokemontopaz.net/forums/s...opaz-Items-TMs
    Where to get Poccil's Essentials: http://pokemonessentials.wikia.com/wiki/Downloads

    That wiki is also helpful for getting familiar with the kit.

    So how's progress now? It's been several months since a "State of Topaz".

    Several? It has only been two, which isn't very bad.
    General overview: progress is pretty good. It spiked recently with your map. We're hoping for increased activity with the arrival of summer.

    Oh, sorry. I didn't realise the most recent one was in the main forum!

    I read that you're looking for people to help with the scripting. It's not something I've ever attempted, but I have dabbled in programming, so if you have some small, specific changes, I would love the chance to play with RGSS and see what's what.

    Well, if you like playing around with scripts, you can try to look at some of the items or abilities. You don't have to commit to making all of them, just helping us try to figure out how to make a few or so. You'll need a copy of Pokemon Essentials though.

    Next State of Topaz coming out soon, though. Hopefully tomorrow. It's time to announce the new mod and to spotlight some of the stuff that we can get done.

    If you want to try it out, you can get Essentials here.
    You'll also need RPG Maker XP, which has a free 30 day trial but costs $30 to buy. Of course, you can probably find it elsewhere on the vast interwebs...

    I, uh, I have played with Essentials before, just not the coding side! Is there a list of new abilities that need coding?

    All of our abilities:

    I know IB said that we had some of the moves coded, but I'm not sure where a list of those would be.

    It's in Topaz Central atm so it'd have to be moved for regular users to see it.

    We can name the moves here at least.
    Badara completed these moves:
    Orion's Sword
    Delta Wave
    Calm Wind
    Cascade
    Cinders
    Doom Scythe
    Edit - apparently, these are bascially done too (easy changes from Delta Wave):
    Alpha Shock
    Beta Flame
    Gamma Spore

    Since Delta Wave is done, Alpha and Gamma (or w/e) are cosmetic changes so consider those done as well.

    We've also got all the ones listed here:

    It's nice that Badara did a lot of difficult ones.

    As for the SoT, sorry, I came home later than I thought I would (some mess where I missed a bus by 2 minutes and ended up waiting 1.5 hours for a train) and then my brother was home to wish me happy birthday (which was today)! So I ended up spending time with him instead.

    So, the school year is almost done for me (my last exam is on Friday). I want to try to learn Ruby over the summer, but last time I tried learning it, I had troubles with finding a good IDE. Anyone here have any recommendations?

    You could try Arcadia or Rubinius. Aren't there several listed on the Ruby website?
