    Hello Everyone, Well I remember a while back (Last year I think) someone thought about making a "Regional Starter Kit". Well I have one nearly complete(after many,many hours of mapping)..I just wanted to ask all you guys if you think I should release it. It will include : Kanto Region, Sevii Islands, Johto Region, and Hoenn Region. Also should I release all the Inners aswell or just the Outside and Cave Maps? I not sure if someone else has released one or not...

    I would also like to include the Sinnoh Region, but resources are scarce..
    Also opinions are more than welcome......

    I am about a week or so away from completing everything..I will include a poll to recieve votes about this...

    EDITED*

    CURRENT ACCURATE PROGRESS :

    Kanto Region : 100% Done
    Sevii Islands : 100% Done
    Johto Region : 80% Done
    Hoenn Region :50% Done

          me personally, am against this. think about it...all ppl would have to do would download poccil's SDK and this region SDK and all the person would have to do would throw down some npcs and a storyline. it takes out all the fun of mapping and game development in general. they're be so many games in the games showcase with the same maps and no originality.

          You do hold a point, but all the people in the GD Section make their own regions. This, I guess, would just promote having an extra region to venture to.

          It's a good idea... but I have a question. Are the maps all being made with the same tileset or is it based off of the tileset that game had? Like Hoenn = R/S/E Graphics?

              well there are really two sides too this argument about discussing whether or not curt should release the kit. this will be really useful for those doing lots of regions and also fake regions. also it wont display the fun of mapping
              so there are many reasons why and why not we curt should release the kit but it all depends on what your doing.


              Was gonna write a discussion but not bothered but still i would like to see what is install for us

                Well, I don't see why he shouldn't release it. If people do end up using it, they'll probably be deemed as lazy by everyone else, so it's not as if everyone with an official region is going to use it.

                Personally, I'm not going to use it anyway, even if I do make a game set in an official region.

                  You guys are forgetting this. If you want you add your own tileset to make it unique. You could mix around the map so it could be a bit different. And lets not forget he is only dong exterior not interior so i say do it!

                    Personally, I disagree with this(for the reason's kinda already stated above), but I think it might be good for newer members of the community. So, I guess....
                    Go for it.

                      So, are you going to include say all the interior maps for 1 town in 1 map? (E.g. all the

                      indoor maps of Pallet Town in one map, excluding Oak's Lab, because of different BGM)
                      Well, tbh i didn't event think to do that..I have made a different map for each interior..

                      Well I see where your coming from, as mapping is one of the main aspects of a game but I don't understand why if you would want to use a Official Region you would map it all your self when the exact same thing is available to you.

                      Yes you could custamize the maps how ever you like, also I have done a lot of inners but I guess I will exclude them from the kit.....unless you guys want em


                      Thanks for all your opinions and critism

                        Interesting idea but it would take away the fun of mapping. This woul prove useful to several memebers but would also (like stated before) bring up many gaes with no custom ideas maps, or tiles. I personally would not need this because i'm almost finished mapping hoen and kanto and bacause i'm usin the g/s/c kanto maps and custom hoenn maps. Well it looks like you've been working really hard on this so release it, It'll be great to see all the regions put into one kit!

                              I personally like the idea. I am making my own region but, would like to put the other regions in my game as well.

                                  Why does that make you lose interest? I'd actually LOVE to have the regions. They'd help progress of my game jump from 10% to 60%.

                                      Probably because he's not using RMXP...

                                                just face it guyz... he's either gone and either isnt coming back for a while or not at all or the idea is dead.... just be patient... if he release's it, he realese's it... how would you feal if you found out his mum died or something and you guys were bugging him to relese it... its a good idea but why dont you just try mapping it yourself?? it makes it more original!
