All jokes aside, this looks like a pretty good region. Everything's nice and connected, and the routes seem about the right length. The shape of the landmass is a little bland though. Maybe show a couple small rivers going into the mainland, or towards the lake, I'm not sure.

Overall, I'd say 7 out of 10

Here's mine:

Map: Rosewood City
Game: my Ruby hack
This is the one of the largest towns in my hack right now. The reason the Gym is an old Japanese tower is because it's the only surviving building from the original town that burned down long ago. North of here is the snowy side of a mountain, south is a dry canyon, and east is Cycling Road.
Spoiler:



Edit: Well no one's reviewed me yet, so I'll add one more. It's the same city, just during a point in the story where it gets burnt to the ground by SPOILER.

Rated Map: Above in spoilers

Rating: Both are rated 9/10

Reason: Everything's superb! I don't notice any problems

Suggestions:
Now this isn't about your map, but rather
where the exits go. One goes to a dry desert and the other one goes to a snowy mountain? Climate clash much? Oh and one thing about the map: is it me or is it odd that the gym and that FRLG bicycle shop building survived? Sure, it's okay the Pokecenter survived because everyone needs a Pokecenter but the other two aren't really needed. Unless the bicycle shop is actually the mart.

------

Map Name: Winding Town

Map Game: Pok
émon Blast (FireRed)

Comments: It's the starter town. I personally think it looks better than Clearview Town (not for the same hack.)

Review:
-Map Name: Winding City

Ok, to start. I think this map is pretty simplistic. I do like your use of trees and think they are in good places. I do not like the use of path ways in front of House' doors. I personally like to make paths connecting everything the Player should be walking to. Your flowers are really nicely placed, and theres not too many of them. Quesion: Since this is the starter town, shouldn't the Lab be there? Maybe you have a different plan, which is cool, I was just curious.

Overall Rating: 8/10 Stars :D

Review: Ice Path Troll
The map looks very interesting. I don't know the game, so I don't know the objective of the path. Make sure the encounter rate isn't too high, by the way. :D
The way you laid out the trees looks very natural and neat at the same time. If you can slide over the frozen pond, that would be very cool. In fact, you can even make a mini ice puzzle there if you wanted. I like how there are multiple entrances.
The big, icy rocks look like they could get the shading done a little better. You could lighten the shading at the top maybe. I'm not sure; I'm not that great of an artist. :D Also, unless you have map connections, it is really not going to look good when you get to the north and south areas because of the looping four square tiles.

Rating: 95%
----------------------------------------------------------
Map Name: Route 5
ROM: Fire Red
Tileset: Mew_Ryn and some of my own tiles.
Description: This is the fifth route in my ROM hack, Pokemon Silicon. It is a small route. It leads to Route 6, a much longer route. Do not take into much consideration of areas the player cannot see. Those areas don't matter much at all.

(sorry about taking out the quote, it was making my laptop run so slow, I couldn't even reply)
Map Name: Route 5
Rating: 8/10
Reason:
I personally prefer a bit more room to roam while going through routes. It makes it a bit more interesting, as well as takes up more time for the player to go through it, haha. I do, however really like the tiles and the multiple levels the player walks through, and how the player basically has to go backwards to get to the house on the upper right.
Suggestions:
I might suggest to cut away into the rocks on the right or left, lower corners and add a bit of roaming areas, maybe for a trainer battle, or an item to find, or possibly just some grass? If not that, maybe widen out the walking areas near the water so they're not right on the edge of the water.

My map-
Name: Unknown (actual name)
Game: Fire Red
Comments:
In my hack, the player will talk to a strange man who will warp them to this area, it's basically a dream/nonexistent world. The player will start out in front of "RED/ASH's" house, and won't be able to enter any of the buildings. There is a fake Pallet Town on the lower right, a fake Newbark Town on the upper left, and a fake, generic city in the middle with buildings, a GYM, etc. I've made the whole tileset and made it gray, however, the pallet got a bit different when it came to the mountains. There will also be a series of events here, and once the player has completed them, they will be warped out of the area, unable to return. Also, I left the black around the borders of the maps and cut them off by their trees to keep the feeling of "lost" or "realm" so it seems less real.

Review: This is pretty interesting, reminds me of the distortion world (all it would need is fitting music :p). Yeah, the palette of the mountains is a little weird, but it doesn't take away from the feel you're trying to get with this map, so it works. The only problem's with this map are the barren areas and buildings. The two large buildings in the middle look odd with just a door and big wall, especially when one of them isn't centered. The labs in the map sort of have this problem, but not as badly. The only other area that could use something would be the area between the middle city and New Bark Town, maybe just 1 or 2 things there so that it's not a big empty space?

Overall, great work. This map would definitely work as it is, but with a bit of improvement it'd be perfect.

Map Name: Route 1

Map Game: Pokemon Firered

Comments: I rushed this map a lot. Right now, it seems like it's missing something, and I just don't know what.

Right, dunno what you're missing, but I can tell you rushed it. WAY too much grass making random encounters far too annoying, the overlap of the trees are all tile errors as you've used the wrong tiles, no tip on the trees that overlap the grass. Narrow spaces are also a no no, but that I don't really mind too much. So, what it does need is more space where there is no grass, you know, for a break, and maybe some flowers should be scattered. Also, maybe a path in some areas to reduce the cramped claustrophobia that the map seems to give me.

6.8/10 for what it is, but has potential to be majorly increased.

Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking when I made that, now that I look back on it...

Anyways, I tossed that idea aside and decided to try something different. Here's what I've come up with instead (it should be a lot better...).

Map Name: Route 1

Map Game: Pokemon Firered

Comments: This one seems a lot more simple to me, but it looks a whole lot better. This route probably is a little short, but with trainer battles and items to distract the player, I think it'll be as long as it needs to be. So, is this one any good?

A simple and great beginner route however IMO you replace the wooden fences with ledges and another thing IMO is that you dont put the cliffs there and replace them with something else. I just don't get the point of too many obstacles in the first route now for mine

Its empty the placement is "odd" the map does not look so great it needs some work.... the placement is awkward, use some larger trees and not so much grass try to make it more interesting but not annoying.

Hmm, I like the natural border to the map and the unusual yet creative Central building assumed to be a lab? Looks nice, however... Its very very spaced, far too spaced out. Take note of my uploaded picture. Its a remake of Sinnoh. See how close together yet beautifully playable the maps are? Take a leaf from Nintendos book. Otherwise, you have the potential to make some amazing routes by the looks of whats coming out in your map.


My Map
Map Name: Twinleaf town, Route 201 & Sandgem Town.
Hack name: Pokemon: Sinnoh Silver

A hack I hope to make. It is NOT a remake of Diamond, Pearl or Platinum. Just a new game, based in Sinnoh using a Pokemon Silver ROM base.

Would people be interested in a hack like this? Do the maps look like interesting maps to play, Sinnoh in GBC? Let me know!

I like the idea. as for the map, 9/10. Looks almost identical to a degraded Sinnoh. Although like SK3 said, Sandgem does seem a little empty in the lowwer right corner.

My Rating:

Rating: 5/10

Reason: I feel this map is nice, but it's a bit too empty. Another problem I can see is that player can walk to anywhere on the map without having to walk in the tall grass. You may have done that because the player has to go in the cave, but with the PC right there it shouldn't be a problem. I can also see some one path tiles on and around the mountain. That can be annoying trying to walk around.

Suggestions:
Add some flowers around the map and a few more small rocks
on/by the mountain. Make some tall grass that the player has to walk through. I'd also adjust the mountain a little to give the player more walking space.

Final Comments: I'm sorry if it seems like I'm only focusing on the negatives of this map. Overall this map seems like a nice idea. I just feel with some proper tweaking this map could turn out to be even better!

Spoiler:
1. Lakeshore Town could do better. Especially the Beach Part. Ill give that a 7.5
2.Boreas Path is nice. Plain and Simple like how a first route should be. But I feel like the trees are too well, organized. They should be scattered around like in real life. So ill give that a 9.3999999


Well for my maps.
I did these maps for practice and for fun
Map #1: Xypher City

Map #2: Starlight Town: (PS: Dont mind the ends of the bushes. The player cant see 'em in game)

Pretty good looking! For Xypher City, I'll give it a 9
and Starlight Town will get a 8.5 I like the entrance of that cave thingy!

Boreas path - Great map, just needed mountain to be more random.

Suggestions:
Lakeshore town - add some dark water in left below side. Add a garden or something to look it more lively.
Boreas path - These four bushes in the center of map looks a bit strange, maybe add stump there.

Final Comments:
Lakeshore town - Needs to improve, but you can make it very great.
Boreas path - Very great map, has own atmosphere, amazing.

It feels empty, not only that it lacks colour! Add flowers dont go crazy but it does liven up the map, theor are alot of small tree's randomly placed rather use large trees and add the small trees to it so it feel more natural and well it takes up some space. But place it all nicely. But its a decent map easy access so 6,5.

Hm... now that is a rather interesting looking map, alright... let's see...

I'll give this map a rating of 9.4/10.

What I do like about the map is how it's really naturally mapped, it has a nicely designed tileset, like the Pokémon Center has a PokéBall logo at the top of the roof instead of at the front. It has some grass where you can capture some Wild Pokémon around there as well.

Hm... now what do I think I could suggest to improve the map to make it better? Well I think the mountain needs another cave entrance at a more higher level. It could be rather useful idea to have an item up there or something so that you have to go through the cave in order to get the item at the mountain's higher parts. And also... maybe remove some of the trees in front of the Pokémon Center to give you enough room to walk to the grassy area?

A map like this surely would see a tiny bit of improvement with the cave entrances. But over all... it surely is near enough to a masterpiece. ;)

Its a pleasant map. Done nicelt, I like the layout. Love the top right corner, beautifully done oceanic scene. Consider doing some more oceanside maps? I'd say 8.5/10. I really dislike the Pokecentre and the Palettes could do with adjusting. Make them more natural. Very good work though!

This map is both natural and playable, which is a rare and a very good thing. The valley is a creative way of a connection to a route. I can't spot any tile errors.
The only problem I have with this map is the second floor of the mountain in the northwest corner. I would change it to the brown rocky structure like on the third layer of it, because flowers usually don't grow above caves.
You're going to have problems with borders unless you create seperate maps and connect them to this map.

Visual appeal: 10/10

Review: 7.5, because it's not a bad map, but you said you want it to be more natural. To achieve this, you should maybe arrange the trees in a more imperfect pattern. The paths are also very straight, and lead nowhere basically. You are also missing a tree in the bottom left corner. Otherwise it seems like it'd be a decent town to stop by in a hack.

My Map:

Name: Lowlite Town
Hack Name: Pokemon Bright Waters and Dark Flames
Game Base: FireRed
Comments: The starting town for my new hack. Has a connection North, South, and East

My other Map:

Map Name: Shinygrove City
Hack Name: Pokemon Bright Waters and Dark Flames
Game Base: FireRed
Comments: This town is accessed by route from Lowlite Town. The bottom left connection is the only one originally accessible, the top right is blocked by tree, and the cave isn't unlocked until the end of the game. Also, there are many more trees at the bottom of the map (so you can't see the tile error at the border block)
