The PokéCommunity Get-Together 8
Pokémon Game Map-Off
Hosted/Judged by Hiroshi Sotomura and Destiny Demon. Judges 3|4: colcolstyles, Ninja Caterpie

Welcome to the annual Pokémon Game Map-Off! Like most Get-Togethers, there is a map-off. A map-off is when members create a map with a program/tool and have it judged. There will be three winners, which means there is a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place emblem. Every participant, whether they won or not, will also get an emblem for participating in this map-off.

The suggested programs for this map-off is Advance Map or RPG Maker XP. But feel free to use a program you like to make maps on.

Rules


→ Give credit to the tools/tiles or anything else you used in the map when needed.
→ You cannot steal anyone else's map.
→ This map must be created by you, not someone else.
→ You have to submit your map in the following format below.
→ No special effects are allowed on the map, but static overworlds (trees, boulders, etc.) are allowed.

Schedule


July 15th-21st - Submit your maps in!
July 22nd-25th - Judging process. No more maps accepted.
July 26th - The results are in!

Emblems will be given out as soon as possible, once the staff upload them/are able to give them out.

Posting Format


As stated in the rules, you must submit your map in the following format:

Map Title: (Title)
Description: (Description)
Credits: (Credits)
Mapshot:
Spoiler:


The map must be in spoiler tags, no matter how small or big it is.

And your award is…


As with the past Map-Off competitions, we have prizes awarded to the best maps. This year we're taking a bit of a twist to it - first, second and third place winners get an emblem with their winning entry featured in the emblem! (First place gets it presented in a special, secret way.)

Gold Master Cartographer
You made the best map out of every single person who participated in the Get-Together 8's Pokémon Game Map-Off! This emblem is your stellar map, preserved for cartography.
Silver-Toothed Area Planner
You made one of the best maps - scoring second place - in the Get-Together 8's Pokémon Game Map-Off! This emblem commemorates your success (and shows off a chunk of the map of excellency that made you said success.)
Bronze Map Drawer
You made a map that placed you third in the Get-Together 8's Pokémon Game Map-Off! Congratulations on your nice map!
Puzzle Piecer
This member participated in the Get-Together 8's Pokémon Game Map-Off.

Map Title: Crescent Isles
Description: A group of islands shaped resembling crescent moons. There is a theory that the islands used to be joined together and was once a large, single island long ago. To get to the northern island containing the gym, you have to do several tasks around the island for the civillians. The leader uses dark-type Pokemon (dark types, moons... see the connection? ) and is the seventh gym leader. His house is also on this island. Also, the island is very rainy and Carvahna are known to surround the islands, sometimes getting aggresive and attacking civillians. The only exit it has is south.
Credits: GAME FREAK, LU-HO for creating AdvanceMap. The palettes are from several Pokemon games (Heart Gold/Soul Silver and Black/White)/custom.

Is it okay if, before the submission period ends, that I update my map? I might change the tiles, but I'm just checking to make sure it'd be okay. :U

Description: A sea route map designed to be one map that will annoy players to death due to the currents. There is also a minor grass route. It may not seem hard, but it should be brutal in the game itself with the small GBA screen. Designed 100% Pokémon Ruby tiles. To the top is a regular route. To the east is a sea route.

Map Title: A2
Description: This is designed as the second route players will travel on from the first town (equivalent to Viridian). They would initially travel from east to west (right to left), which means, true to Pokémon style, it's a lot easier to go back than it is to go forwards. The map is designed to link players from the outskirts of a city into a twisting forest, crossing a major river on the way (part of which is surf-able). The map's defining feature is the dual path thing, which is inspired by the dual carriageway motorway idea and me translating that into a Pokémon map. Towards the far west of the map is a route leading north to south, which is inaccessible unless the player has obtained Cut. I think I tried to make the map look natural, yet still make it look like a Pokémon game map. All of the tiles are the original FireRed tileset, with the addition of a small amendment by myself (the fence on the bridge to be exact).

And yes - I realise it's incredibly long.

Map Title: Sebrene City
Description: This sea-side city is one of the largest in the region, playing host to the headquarters of it's biggest businesses. Ryde Corp has recently begun dumping it's by-products on the streets of Sebrene, leaving the nearby residents puzzled as to how they suddenly lost the capabilities to competently handle their manufactured waste. The relaxing sea and beach provide a handy release from the heavy-handed business conducted within the city. There is a long sea route to the East of Sebrene, while you can exit on foot to either the North or West. Finally, it also plays host to the region's only bicycle shop.

NOTE: This wasn't the map I originally planned on posting, but somehow the ROM I was working on became a corrupted file since this morning. I have no desire to spend another 3 or 4 hours recreating it, so I just posted a map from an old hack I was working on.

Since AdvanceMap and RPG Maker XP are only the suggested tools for this contest (and not declared as "have to be used") and since I'm hacking Pokemon Crystal at the moment just for fun, I decided to use Pokemon Crystal Map Ver. 0.97.

Map Title: Tin Tower 9th Floor Revamp
Description: I used the map of the Tin Tower 9th Floor from Pokemon Crystal and edited it. So the map is made by myself, I just used the map that I mentioned before as a base. All of the tiles shown in this pictures are originally from Pokemon Crystal. The "Arcanine puppet thing" and the "wood charcoal" thing are also gtraphics from Pokemon Crystal, but those graphics can only be found and used when editing a tile with the Crystal Map Block Editor (which is included in that tool).
Credits: Everyone, who contributed something to the developement of the hacking tool "CrystalMap Ver. 0.97" (The "About..." section originally says : "CRYS MAP Version 0.97 by Glumanda10000.GM 1.41 by Jigglypuff. Danka an JamesR, Filb und alle anderen Romhackern. ."). Oh and btw, sorry if some "floor parts" (look at Arcanine and the corcoal) or "objects" (the cutted-off fence part) don't match 100% with the map. I can only use defined in-game sprite pieces and put them together to make a tile, but I can't change every pixel so yeah.

Map Title: Never really thought up a name for this one. =/
Description: Ugh, I ran out of time to finish the map I was making for this contest, so I"ll have to use this one instead. It's never been used for anything before, so it should be fine.

With this map, I'm trying to capture a specific emotion that I felt a lot, as a kid. Basically, you come into the city from the right, after a long arduous cave. The city is bright, and happy... but to proceed, you have to go through another cave... and you just don't want to do it. I taunt the player even more by making the next half of the town visible, just down that cliff, so they know what waits for them... but it won't be easy to get to.

Do World Maps count?

Map Title: Tezen
Description: The World Map of the Tezen Region. Industrious, cultured and biodiverse, Tezen boasts a high standard of living for it's citizens, complemented by a bustling economy and low levels of unemployment.

With excellent transport services and a variety of beautiful landscapes and exciting resorts, Tezen consistently attracts a large number of tourists; in particular to the eastern island, which is home to the constantly sunny Lemure Resort, The Sweet Mountain and Neon Palace resorts and Tempest Water Park, in addition to the spectacular Serpents Gate, the frozen Lake Milohai, Promethea Falls and The Great Divide.

That's not to say that the Western Island is not without it's charms. Sureth and Zertinan City are two of the biggest cities in the Pokemon World. Others, such as the VERY British Buxstone City, the floating Aerial City Lhusa and the one-building city of Shadopolis, have become known for their friendly citizens, quirks of architecture, and outstanding artistic output.

Credits: I can't find the original image I took it from, but the snowwy tree's are not my own. Also, The good fellows at Adobe Photoshop.
