    Ok, before I start I just want to clear some stuff up. What I'm about to tell you isn't enough to make the 1000 G/S/C remakes that GBA hacking has become, but It's still something. Also, PokeSpam isn't working on a D/P map editor anymore, someone else is doing this. So let's get started. First you'll need the offsets of course.

    Twinleaf Town = 29717A0
    Verity Lakefront = 2981C80
    Route 201 = 2985F80
    Pokemon Center = 2F48368

    Please note that there's more at those offsets then I'm going to explain, go ahead and experiment with other stuff ;). Now This tut is going to deal with a patch of grass on Route 201, but you can do it on other things on other maps. The hex for your average piece of ground looks like this: 22 25 22 26 00 01 00 02 00 38 00 04 00 01 00 00 00 38 00 18. If your trying to do the same piece of grass as me, that is exactly what it will look like. Now let's try changing that too 22 25 22 26 00 01 00 14 00 38 00 04 00 01 00 00 00 38 00 18. What looked like this:


    Should now look like this:


    So congratulations! you've just changed the dimensions on one small part of a map in Diamond... Now let's change some more dimensions, try changing it to 22 25 22 26 00 01 00 14 00 76 00 04 00 01 00 00 00 38 00 18 It should now look like this:


    Great, now you've changed 2 dimensions of a piece of a map. Now, change it too 22 25 22 26 00 01 00 14 00 76 00 18 00 01 00 00 00 38 00 18. It should look like this now:


    Ok, so you get the basic idea of that, 22 25 22 26 00 01 00 14(Side 1 dimensions) 00 76(Side 2 dimensions) 00 18(Side 3 dimensions) 00 01 00 00 00 38 00 18. Well there's one more thing, change it to 22 25 22 26 00 01 00 14 00 76 00 18 00 04 00 00 00 38 00 18.



    That's the number of times that the texture repeats itself horizontally. And that's it. For people who didn't want to read the whole thing it pretty much comes down to this, 22 25 22 26 00 01 00 14(Side 1 dimensions) 00 76(Side 2 dimensions) 00 18(Side 3 dimensions) 00 04(Texture repeating horizontally) 00 00 00 38 00 18.

    That's basically it, not enough to make a full hack, but it's something. Please DON'T post this anywhere without my permission, and happy hacking!

      It looks weird... Why would someone need a triangle piece of grass...

      EDIT: Oh, I get it.. Dimensions... Yay! First post!

        Yeah this is like turning the camera you are watching from... Great tutorial, even if I won't use it
        I noticed it already is somewhere in the game... It's in the intro, where it shows Floaroma...

          Well you won't be seeing a map editor from PokeSpam, but I will be updating this tutorial to make it more... capable? And you will be seeing some map related tools from pokespam.

            I don't mean to ask a dumb or ill-related question, but you said:
            "PokeSpam isn't working on a D/P map editor anymore, someone else is doing this"
            Who is the "someone else"?

                I thought Pika and LoadingNOW were the same person?
                Or am I just really confused?

                Oh, and is a triangle the only shape possible? I'd assume so, because all you're doing is pulling one corner towards you.

                      No, Nintendo and I made squares.


                      Play around ;) this is where repeating the texture comes in handy.
