>Pokémon statues are just the pokémon's model with a grey filter>They aren't even completely greyWhy?
HOLY FUCKING SHIT>they just have a grey filter>they just have a grey. filter.>they just>have>a grey>filterI have no words left. This game really is gonna be the worst in the series.
>>48424361Because they use one flat texture. If you wanted say a Elecrivire statue they would have to go into each texture itself to change the colours one by one instead of a blanket filter
>>48424381I recommend Crystal instead if you haven’t tried it yet, it’s amazing
>>48424361>not even a new poseIT'S NOT LAZY IT'S UUUUUH SOVL
>>48424361>>Pokémon statues are just the pokémon's sprite with a grey filterbro…
>>48424392you could just desaturate the whole model then apply the filter how can they be this lazy
>>48424404A wild Shill appeared!
Lmao i just don't care anymore, not even that they're doing this lazy shit with my 2nd fav generation I'm done with mainline trash for good
>>48424413>calling out retarded faggots equals being a shillA U T I S M
>>48424409Because it'll sell anyway
>>48424406>2005 handheld game vs 2021 home console gamenot the same
>>48424447There's no point in making a separate model for a statue.
>>48424406I mean, they still had to make those sprites from scratch since they otherwise don't appear in the game. That's still marginally more effort.
>>48424500unironically look better
>>48424406Sprites are harder to pose than models
>>48424361is this real? does nobody at gf know what shaders are? i thought those were just normal mons in a cloud of dust or something
>>48424482>>48424527Sprites are piss easy to make
>>48424361Statues used to be painted
>>48424549Ehhh, not particularly...
>>48424549Easy to make =/= easy to make look good
>>48424549Go on and show me some of yours.
>>48424393Shut up Meg
>>48424361>haha i don't really know now buy bdsp you gaijins
>>48424549And a single texture for statues isn't?
>>48424522I think Rescue Team DX looks better than any mainline 3D game. The cell shaded, faux hand-drawn look is exactly the sort of aesthetic the games should strive for./vp/ doesn't like it though.
>>48424361don't care still buying both versions
>>48424648you literally don't even need new textures, just remove the saturation, you can use a shader to do that and if you can't do that (which a game studio should) basically every image editing software can do it in 5 seconds.
nice to see all these armchair shader experts
>>48424668They can bite my balls, they reject anything that isn't apart of the formula and I'm tired of it.
>>48424478It wouldn't require new models at all, and probably less than 10 textures if they really put effort in, just a few lines of shader code. All they need to do is change it to convert the pokemon's normal texture to grayscale, blend it with a generic stone texture (possibly have a few with different grains to hide seams/better work with the wide variety of UV maps), maybe tweak contrast, then handle lighting calculations. Testing should only take a few hours - set up a test room with a statue in the middle and some debug mode controls to swap the pokemon/stone variations, dial in the best values in the shader to get the right look overall by looking at some test cases - pokemon with high/low contrast, complex/simple meshes, ect. then do a quick visual check of each statue to make sure there's nothing too noticeably off and decide which stone variation works best for it. That's it, one graphics programmer and one texture artist could overhaul them in an afternoon and have much better results than just desaturating the default texture about 50%, no changes to the models and no need to do a totally custom solution for each of the presumably 400ish mons in the game.
>>48424361>Pokémon statues are just the pokémon's model with a grey filterThis is how almost all 3d games do statues.>They aren't even completely greyThats a weird choice, yeah. Not altogether terrible though.
>>48424361They're mummified corpses
>>48424361I like the idea of statues affecting the Pokemon you see in the underground. I just wish this feature didn't also cut into decorating your own secret base.
I feel bad for Sinnohfags
>>48424361so what? you hate colored statues or something?
>>48424381Who the fuck cares it doesn't ruin the soul
>>48424361We're reaching soullessness levels that shouldn't even be possible
>>48424361That is really, really, really, really lazy
>>48424500That's hideous, too. What's your point? That all pokémon games are mediocre, at best?
>>48424406At least they got them completely grey
How else should this have been done? I am not understanding the issue.
>>48426601If they didn't want to spend a lot of time into it they could use the plushies models fron the ORAS secret bases or something. Wouldn't look as horrible as what they did.
>>48426620Could have used*
>>48426620They wouldn't have been able to use 3ds assets without extra workbut I don't really feel this looks horrible, it's not great but not offensive to me
>statues of pokemon look like pokemon statueshow could they do this to us bros
>>48426601As other anon said, apply greyscale so you can retain the texturework. Then the statue filter
Placing the things was the most egregious element. A fucking yes no prompt to place it instead of just placing and picking up with A.
>>48425234>who cares? soul less bullshit doesn't ruin the soulstupid shit, die
>>48424478there is no point in making game at all. just plaster a dvd or cd there that doens't have anything but a video of a story or some shit, half assed and where some retard plays the game. it is easier than giving and programming an actual game. but it has the pokemon logo, so who cares? it is still soul, right
>>48424478>10 cents have been added to your bank account
>>48424406those were eastereggs for new pokemon since gen 4 wasnt out yet and it was on the GBAALSO the remake had them with stone texture
>>48426643fuck off and kill yourself
>>48424452>>48424404>>48424423Wild tranny shill appeared!
>>48424361Uh so sorry, so sorry, just a small uh indie company here at a game freak, you American have a big uh penis a by the wayGod I hate this franchise
>>48424500>Filter properly removes their colors>Filter just looks better>They actually have dynamic poses that look closer to a real statue>Their feet even line up properly with their uneven footingCan we just get fucking Chunsoft to make these remakes next time? They clearly give more of a shit than both gamefreak and ILCA since their game actually attempted an artstyle.
Does anyone really care about thisThis was known for a long timeWhy the complaints today specifically
>>48424393based>>48424610kys, she's actually right
Hold upWhat's the point of the spheres in the digging minigame if you only decorate your base with statuesDo you buy more statues with spheres?
>>48424393>>48424381This is excellent satire.
>>48427991Game Freak isn't even making these games, they're too busy with Legends. ILCA is making this.
>>48424610>johto hater can’t handle different opinionsShocking
>>48424361greek/roman statues where painted over, what is teh problem?
>>48429293>>48424569In which case these would look like painted statues, which they do not
