What are you using to make the maps in the only map edditing is Rom hacking not game making. I'm willing to be a mapper for you if you want but you'll have to help me get the tools and learn how to use them.
Oh, it's a GAME game. Forgive my ignorance but my knowledge has always been confined to ROM Hacking.
I must admit, I've never mapped in RPG Maker XP or any game making program so if I were to accept, I would have to get used to mapping in a program other than AdvanceMap. Still, it would be an interesting experience. Ah what the hell, sure, I'll do it. When do I get started?
I've been reading your conversations with some of my ROM Hacking buddies and I picked up on the idea of having each mapper do a seperate region or something along those lines. If this will be the case, would it be alright if I claimed the Orange Islands as my region?
Well, once you've got a couple, let it go, especially if they're good.
It's perfectly fine to have completely different mapping styles in two different regions, it probably makes it look better and more natural that way. =D At least we get to map most/all of a region alone.
And it's HARD to recruit mappers? What world is that? O.o
I swear, when I started here, mappers were going around everywhere, and no teams wanted mappers! Must be different in GD. :\ Or do you mean good mappers? xD
Some changes, like Emerald paths and grass and stuff is okay, but keep to Nintendo's beautiful tiles! =D
Holy crud. How many people exactly have you asked to map? :O Mapping's one of those small things that it's best to leave one person to do. Two is okay, but...well...a lot of people have conflicting maps, see..
Well, you wouldn't want someone to go into Route 1 and walk through it and feel it like Nintendo mapping, but then the next Route is filled with trees and mazey grass. :\
It's okay if each of us does a different region, or maybe two to one region, but you have to understand that it's not really easy to map alongside someone else, especially if they map in a way you don't like.
