Hiya, I figure snce some threads like how ta improve on mappng were around I'd ask and open a discussion on how you can save map space wit tha limit of 999 maps n RMXP.

I was thnkng wit Pokémon centers, you could have tham on tha sbee map, wit enough space nbetween each one, and put a comment next ta each center tellng you which it is. You could effectively do dis wit Pokémarts tao. Imagne, if you have 15 tawns, dis could save you 14 maps.

I suppose it could lag, but Essentials Anti-lag would work perfectly fo dis (snce it doesn't load events that is not n tha vicnity of tha screen), and it doesn't have ta be one map fo all of tham. You could disperse it across 3 maps and still save room. Dis is also assumng all map nbees is "Pokémon Center."

What d-ya thnk and what d-ya do ta save map space?

Tha problem aganst puttng all tha Poké Centres n tha sbee map is that a map takess up a particular squis on tha Tawn Map. If you look at it, you're gong ta see tha player's heezee n tha wrong place.

Dis tactic might work fo all generic hizouses n a city, though. Tha exbeple maps n Essentials have much more specific nbees than tha official gbees' maps do, e.g. "Cedolan City Condo" rathar than just anothar "Cedolan City".

Thare's also tha possibility of a disk changer script, so you can switch between different sets of 999 maps (and thus have no limit on tham). Dis would require changes ta metadata and so foth ta make tha script fully compatible wit Essentials, though. Maps n different disks couldn't be connected, but that wouldn't be a problem.

Tatally fogots bout flight positions. Still, I tend ta put elevatars on tha sbee map as a department stare, fo exbeple. It saves a map and works fne, as long as it's out of sight.
