Welcome to the Holiday Game Map-Off Event! Are you a ROM hacker? Or maybe a game developer? Or do you just like creating Pokemon maps on your tool/program? Well then you should participate in this event, where you can create maps and submit them in this contest for the judges to see your maps. Every participant of this event, whether they won or not in the map-off, will receive a Participant Emblem. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of the map-off will receive an additional emblem for winning in this event.

The theme for this map-off? Since it's a
New Years Extravaganza, the theme of this map-off is to create a map that fits in with what you think should represent the New Years! It could be a Winter-Wonder Land map, or a New Years Festival map. What ever your imagination desires.~

When mapping, think of the criteria that's being judged. The three categories of criteria for the judging are: Originality/Creativity ; Overall Appearance ; Playability.

Suggested programs
: Advance Map or RPG Maker XP. But you are free to use any other program that you have in mind you want to use. Note: Adding extra stuff to the map such as overworlds and special effects (with a graphic program) are prohibited.

Rules
→ You must give credit for anything you use, when due. Ex; Programs/tools or tiles.
→ You are not allowed to steal someone's else map.
→ Don't ask someone else to make you a map, this has to be done by you.
→ Please use the format below to submit your map.

Posting Format
As said above, you must use this format to submit your map. You must include the map title, credits, a short description of the map, and, of course, the map itself in spoiler tags, no matter how small or large it is. Example:

Map Title: [Title]
Description: [Description]
Credits: [Credits]
Mapshot: [Within spoiler tags]
Spoiler:


Final Notes
The event will be held from December 29th to January 1st. The judging process will be during the event. Results will be posted in this post on January 2nd, the last day of the whole New Year's Extravaganza. Emblems will be given to the participants/winners soon after the entire get-together is done. Below are the awards being given to the participants/winners. Also below is some resources that you may want to use for your maps, such as ROM bases and tiles. (These resources are up to you to use; they are not required.) If you have any questions concerning this event, feel free to ask either me or Regeneration.
Awards:

Winners: 1st Place - Ninja Caterpie. 2nd Place - Cilerba/Spherical Ice. 3rd Place - Binary.
Resources:

Remember that it is not required to use these resources.

1. Frozen ROM Base (Firered only)

By: Neti, dshayabusa, Fangking Omega
You may possibly use the Frozen ROM Base if you require winter tiles for mapping. This will work only with a Pokemon Firered ROM, and is an IPS patch.

2. Snow-Based Tiles
By: Wesley FG, Crito (Zein)
If needed, you can use some snow-based tiles by Wesley FG to complete your maps for the event.

Map Title: Route 67
Description: Just took the Frozen Rom base and did a winter-themed map.
Credits: Neti, dshayabusa, Fangking Omega, Lu-Ho for A-Map
Comments: There are some trees that are cut off, but I intentionally did that. The city below is to combine naturally with this map. Also, I noticed two tile errors, one on each lake. Disregard the one on the bottom lake, as I cannot find suitable tiles for that. Also, the one on the top lake, I don't want to have to re-upload this again, as it's enough of a pain to get this far.

    Map Title: N/A
    Credits: Neti, Thrace (dshay is an old name ._.) and Fangking Omega.
    Description: I just made a small wintery town thing (totally not an Australian New Years haha). It's not particularly new-yearsian but eh. I have to say, Neti's ROM base is filled with flaws and weird things. Had to do a lot of tweaking to get the tiles right (like tree shading)

    Notes:
    bottom cave leads to top cave, with an ice puzzle and some items within.
    the ice puzzle in the map isn't particularly "puzzling", but it needn't be. When it's the main method of moving around the town, making it a real puzzle is more annoying than cool. :x

    Here's my entry! :D

    Map Title: Route 2011

    Description: A strange formation of road, mountain, forest and water. Some have said that there is meaning in these formations, and that it has something to do with it's name...

    Credits: The Guys who made AdvancedMap for being so awesome. I used the default FireRed tileset with several very small alterations.

    Mapshot:
    Spoiler:


    Comments: Can anyone see it? I tried to hide it but make it obvious at the same time. I thought that the best way to make a map for 2011 was a map that actually said '2011'. Still, I wanted it to look like a proper Pokémon Route. There were originally a few Cut trees and Smash rocks, but they were taken out because of the No Overworld rule .

    Hope you guys like!

    That's right, Poster.
    Ninja Caterpie, you'll have to remove the Pokeball off the map or it shall be disqualified.

    Also, guys you can edit your map as many times as you want before the due date.

      @Regeneration - Well if the overworlds are easy to remove I can just remove them myself from the map. Although if the author does it that would be better. :P

          Just a little question, but these maps won't be judged by their graphics also, right?

            Map Title: Icepeak City (I'm not one for making up names...)
            Description: This lovely litty City located in the North/West part of the Kansai region, only accesable through mountain hiking and cave exploration.
            Here you will find many ice type Pokemon and people very snug is warm clothing, since it so frequently snows.
            The gym leader resides in a chilling cave to the south of the map, where you must solve puzzles to reach her, after you defeat her you will be greatly rewarded if you travel deeper in the icy caverns.
            Credits: Dewitty, Alucus, Calis projects, Me for 90% of the snow edited tiles, and various other who may be a part of this map I've listed here (Since it's quite long) : http://zadow.deviantart.com/journal/34250590/

            Map Title: Road of Hopes and Dreams

            Description: This thing is abstract. Just to tell you this first.

            With a new year, comes hopes and dreams... and I'm sure everyone would like to chase it.

            Well... it all begins in the bottom-left corner. It's deeply forested with lots and lots of grass. Right?

            There's a resthouse in the beginning of the route. Just when you need the energy to get started for the new year!

            Well, when you go further and further, you'll actually start to see the actual scenery behind the mini-forest. First, you can see the small pond. Across the pond is a city, symbolising hopes and dreams. And any Trainer with his or her worth will want to get in there, to chase their hopes and dreams - that's where the map's name came from. Moving further, you can get a close look at the cliffs and you can also literally smell the flowers. Sooner or later, you'll get off the tall grass, and begin walking on an actual road. Then you'll be walking on concrete. It's not far from the city from here on.

            This map uses a S-shaped layout to get away with a small grid count while still being somewhat long. After a Trainer gets Surf, they can enjoy a shortcut through the small pond.

            There is a Secret Base tree on a very small "island" in the middle of the small pond. Again, it is only accesible with Surf. The other Secret Base tree is worse than the pond-island one because of.. limited space.

            There is a Berry plot somewhere. Grow your Berries - grow your hopes and dreams. That's what I can say.

            (By the way, can you find "2011" in the map?)

            Credits: I used AdvanceMap 1.92 and Emerald default tilesets. No alterations made to the default tilesets.

            Map Title: Novus Town

            Description: A small town where the new year festival is getting ready to heat up! There is a party area up in the north-east of the town where the bulk of the celebrations will take place, while the two beaches provide some refuge from all the partying. There is a dock in the south which will ferry customers for midnight cruises when it gets close to the hour.

            I live in Australia, so it is always Summer when the new year rolls around - That is why I have chosen a beach party location in favour of a winter wonderland.

              It fits the theme of New Year as it leads to many directions - different ways you may change your life in the New Year (through resolutions, etc.). I know it's a vague fit to the New Year, but oh well.

              Map Title: Ice Icle City
              Description: A cold town in the south. It was recently flooded, and now all the remaining floodwater is frozen, which explains the large amount of ice.

                  Map Title: Rural pass
                  Description: many events happen here, which is why the cave is blocked off at first, there is that one rock off to the side, and there are so many little loops. The flowers at the top of the map lead into a forest. Yes the two is backwards on purpose.

                  ok whew.
                  Map Title: New Ice Path
                  Description:
                  Due to the left sides blockage, people tried to cross the rightside before the bridge was built causing all those holes and fractures.
                  Trainers come up this math to reach the sumbit for the "New Years Safari Capture", some rare Pokémon are aviable during this time causing the lack of grass in the upper right (Traffic, lol).
