Played a Pokémon RPG game recently? Then you've certainly seen the quality area designs GameFreak has come up with. If you're a ROM hacker or a Pokémon fan game developer, you'll have tried to match or do better than them. This is the competition to have them judged!

The judges for this competition are Hiroshi Sotomura, Alice., and Vesper. This competition works when all the judges get a collective score from the criteria. The map with the highest score wins!

How to enter

Post your competition entry in the following order:

Map name
Tools used
Source of tiles
[Image here]


Submissions end and judgment begins 12:00 AM Monday, August 24th.

Competition rules

One map only, and only the map design is counted.
One map per participant only. Only the map and environmental objects are counted in this competition - NPCs, scripts, warps and any other elements will not be counted.

Maps can be created using any tool. You may use a proper map editor (AdvanceMap, for instance) or a dedicated tile editor, or go as far as MS Paint to create a map.

PNG submissions only.
Whatever you do, don't give us a giant PSD, an ugly JPEG, or a broken GIF. PNG-24 files maintain all the colour required - and that's a good thing. Save your maps as that.

Do not submit maps not created by you.
Competition entries must be your own work. You may be infracted (4 point content theft infraction, no expiry) if you submit someone else's work as your own.

If you use a custom tileset (not the default game tiles), cite where it comes from.
Regardless of whether you do or do not have to credit the tileset, you must cite the creator.

Judgment criteria

For each entry, judges give a numerical score and a comment to each criterion here. Judges may also leave a comment about the map.

Accessibility (/10)
How will you navigate this map? Is it easy? Is it playable?

Originality (/10)
Anything unique about this map?

Tileset (/10)
Does the map make effective use of the tileset? Is the tileset good or bad?

I will enter this! I don't do hacking but I do mapping for fun so I'll give it a try.
Can it be anything? (As in route, town, city, building, etc.?)

Edit: Well here's my entry. Please tell me if anything's wrong with it, such as if it's ineligible for whatever reason.

Map name: Frosty Lake
Tools used: Advance Map 1.92 (Cropped and saved in MS Paint)
Source of tiles: Snow ROM Base (Fire Red) - Neti, dshayabusa, Fangking Omega

By the way, this is my first serious attempt at making a map. Just saying.

Uh, the 24th is a Monday. Does this mean the submission deadline is tonight or Monday night?

Additional Comments: This is Route A, the first route in my hack, Pokemon Rays of Light.

I went with Fire red tiles in this map, though the finished hack will have better tiles in general.
An I allowed to change my submission before the final call for entries? (As to add the new tiles?)
I just got a comment on this post, giving me good remarks. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside! =3 THANKS!

Hm. I'd say building interiors are fine because they are maps nonetheless, but I can't think of judging an interior map to be any better than an exterior. :| I mean, they're small and not very pretty. xP

I have a question about the one map only rule. Does it count as one map if it is a city attached to a route or is that considered two maps?

I think if you attached a city to a route it would be considered two maps. But I think an exception is if you attach two routes together, it would at least look like one map. But no, you should make one map, just in case. :]
