View Full Version : [Tutorial] Creating a World map

May 3rd, 2009, 2:08 PM
Items needed:

MS Paint

Colour pack/World map tiles

PTC or other Tile map creator

And already read this Tutorial



1. The Planning

2. Action

3.Creating a map to use

Step 1. Planning

To start off you need to know

(a)How many cities you’ll have

(b)How many Routes you’ll have

For my example ill go with 14 cities and ill put in mostly water routes

Ill need to open up MS Paint and start with my colour pack.(needed for later)

Step 2. Creating a map

Start out with your basic green(Darkest)

Make it some thing like this

As you can see i have a new format to work on

Now the light green



Ill edit this later when im not half bored

I like the tutorial Skello! It works great and I made a pretty good map using this tutorial! Thanks :)

(Kaka, you obviously haven't clicked the link in Part 1 which it assumes you have read, which explains how to insert a world map.)

You obviously haven't seen the two attached files, downloadable, and ready to view in NotePad, Or Word, or anything else capable of viewing that.

Would this work on Ruby? Because it looks like your editing FireRed, or LeafGreen (But who hacks that?)

Interesting way to make a tutorial, but it all makes sense to me now

Tut is good but for me it's half-baked

You can found the newest tileset of worldmap from HS/SS on Sprite Resource.

hey,where can i find or download colour pack

In Step 3 (in the Word Doc part 1) are you supposed to be using paint or PTC to design the actual map?
I only ask because it isn't too clear; In either program, I'm not sure how to set the tile to "8x8" or in PTC how to set the whole are to "208x153", and PTC seems a bit awkward to use in general...
