Hi everyone.This is the first map I have posted to the site, so fingers crossed.

This is Honess Town it is the third town encountered by the protagonist and the location of the second gym (rock type). It's economy is solely supported by the quarry and the exports of rocks and minerals. All of my town names are based on minerals of a similar color to the type of gym Honessite = Brown.

I like it Ping. Maybe use a second house type 2 yellow 2 new ones? Really it's just the lack of window for me. If it was mine, I'd make that center pillar a little less square and put a pond there.

The mine itself looks great. Maybe a little 4x4 shed down there? Did you make those cranes?

How come no one looked at my map?

Thank you, That is a great suggestion I completely overlooked that I forgot to put windows on the houses. Yes the cranes were drawn by me.

Another thing people don't think about in RPMXP, is you can make Combo pokemon centers/marts.

I thought about doing that, but i actually like the separate buildings better. Even though the combo would be more convenient...

Im not a huge fan of Gen 3 graphics (As ive mentioned before) But this map is really good. I would recommend making the Houses a bit bigger though. If you can

Yeah, it's often overlooked by developers. However, I combined the PokéCenter and Mart and I must say, it's a lot more convenient.
Especially if you're lazy like me

Trying to get back into mapping once again, been a long time since I last properly did a map. It is, unfortunately rather empty right now, but been given a few ideas from one person already as to what I should fill the space in at the top. At the moment I'm working on tiles as I map, so for now it's empty until I've actually sprited the missing parts.

Hey that looks pretty nice! Keep up the good work. As for the top, maybe add like an abandoned mill or like a run down shack thing. Haha

I made a mockup of the new starter town. I WILL be editing it and possibly even making it larger. I didn't add any detail because i new i was going to change it.

P.S. Thanks go to Harvey_Create for helping me fix my tileset errors! :D

It's a very nice map, I love the colours especially. I'd add some tall grass to it though, and fill the empty space I the bottom half of the map.

This map looks really nice and has the potential to be much better; the stairs bed to be cut down a bit to fit the rock face and the pathways should really only be 3 tiles across. Some of the path placement looks a little too random as well. I'd add some flowers, more buildings or trees to fill in remnants of empty space.

I think I've finally nailed down what I want in my tileset. 2D and lots of flowers/trees/dodads.

See next post.

ppooookkkkkkk, it's not bad but borderless 3D... not in my taste. The tree blocking the top left house kinda sticks out to me along with that random middle trash can. I'd also put some grass on that isle and hide a few rare pokemon there. It'd reward people for backtracking/exploring.

Go to a different layer other than events layer. Then go to View at the top and click Dim other layers. It'll be a clear picture with no gridlines like the events layer. Then you'll be able to analyze the map better.

Looking Good man. I like the tiles. As for designing, it looks cool with that set up, but just needs to be bordered, and have some more decoration (possibly a little park or something)

Its getting better. Still need to fix the trees on your exit. I also just noticed you Houses shadow and your labs Shadows dont match. They go opposite direction. (might want to fix that PM me is you can't and i can try for you)

Huzzah! Made a map that will actually be in my game. So basically, this map is the first one you will need to navigate outside of your home town. Within the map you'll be able to meet the Professor with no name staring at a pond with water Pokémon. This is where you'll be given the opportunity to start your adventure.

I really like it. The tiles also look excellent. Are there going to be trainers on one side of the path?

If your talking about the left side, maybe one. Thats the way to get back easier. I am also editting the colors for the tiles, so it will look better.

Ok I finished up my starter town. I still am going to tweak it and all that. I might make most of it into a snowish town, and it will be located north or the region. Soooo, how about it?

The new Route 4, to Sable City. It connect to the southern part of the end of Route 3


My starting town
Spoiler:



Kronos, I like the lab pen and cave. The house on the ridge is nice too. I'd play around with snowifying(dirt tiles too) everything upto the red line in the spoiler.
Spoiler:


carmaniac, It's good. The water in the south is a route right? Your rock placement is a bit too uniform to my eye, such as the places with a rock above and below a ledge.

Your map is quite large. unless you plan on adding more trees, or possibly more house, Its going to be too open.

Or try squeezing the map a bit. Sorry, i just dont like large maps that have 3 houses. :L
