    Not bad. It's pretty compact, which isn't necessarily a bad thing- I'm guessing you were trying to make a small town? The only problem I can see is in the bottom left corner, where you have a tree overlapping a house- that looks really awkward. Either move the tree a tile to the left or the house a tile to the right. Other than that, it looks good to me.

          shadowriver: you might want to use a name other than Pinwheel Forest. After all, that's in Unova. The rock area in Route 1 below makes no sense with trees on either side. Also, you can put all four maps in one file if you want; just manually expand the trees. I'm doing a project like that right now on an existing hack. EDIT: To the comment on this post, yes, I get that this isn't the hacks forum. I'm referring to something I'm doing on a hack, not suggesting the map is for a hack.

          Bramvdh: :o You went all out of the tiling work, quite clearly...and you used different trees in the forest area. Never seen that. Also see the attempt to add depth on the right. However, I think the grass actually starts Route 1, doesn't it? Not sure why it's on the town map.

          Also, Bramvdh, you might want to put the maps inside spoiler tags...

            Thanks for the feedback.
            About the rocks, my idea was of a broken off cliff. a sort of forgotten piece of a rock avalanche. Maybe the rocks are a bit to big.

            About the grass in Pallet Town, I just made it on my memory and I remember professor Oak rushing from the village that why I added it their. I can fix it when it becomes a problem.

            Are the different trees a good idea? It gives a more realistic view imho

              The rock comment was on the wrong paragraph, you can disregard that. I meant the area under Route 1 in the map post above yours. Just corrected that.

                  If you want to know names to avoid, in that case, here's a list:

                  Spoiler:
                  Wellspring Cave
                  Pinwheel Forest
                  Chargestone Cave
                  Mistralton Cave (which could be named for Mistralton City later on)
                  Lostlorn Forest
                  Cold Storage
                  Challenger's Cave (though this could be used in another area technically)
                  Celestial Tower
                  Twist Mountain
                  Moor of Icirrus (but that's for Icirrus City)

                  And that's the maingame, I'm not in the eastern side of Unova yet (still a little weak and will likely wander in Route 11 grass and hunt Audinos), though the E4 and Ghetsis have fallen. I do know Abyssal Ruin(s) and Giant Chasm are over there.

                    I'm making a game with a sort of unique approach to it (although it sadly is like Pokemon Island, if you played that). This is where the wild pokemon would be and a few trainers, much like a route in official games. I don't know if I should have a closed off area like on the left with stairs to get to the next floor, either up or down, or if I should have them all connected together on one giant floor (it would have more than one connecting pathway like shown, I just wanted a visual example).

                        It's the same map, that's why it looks the same. I just don't know if having them all connected and on one floor in a giant map would be good or if I should keep it like the mystery dungeon games and have a ton of floors. The one on the right would be like a Northern edge of one giant map, like the safari zones have different areas.

                        Yours, Bramvdh, looks amazing. My only issue is that the gym roof is too close to the color of the pokemon center, so on some maps I might get confused if I didn't already know which was which.You also have a trashcan? that is kinda going through the fence in the middle house. I like the different flower colors and tree shades. Other than those minor things it looks great to me!

                          Bramvdh, your maps are very nice and the nature blends in well with the houses, I especially like the variety in trees. 2 things, though, having the mailbox in front of the blue roofed house in pallet town looks awkward, it would be better to just swap it with the flowers or move it somewhere else. Also, I think it would be beneficial to get more modern, hgss-style tiles, since the kylestyle houses do look a bit old compared to the the newer trees.

                              okay, keep in mind I haven't added decorative items like benches, trees, shrubs, etc. Nor have I edited some of the edge trees to be different. This is just the overall look of the main city in my game.

                                Hmm...it's way too big. Way too square, and way too empty. Even if you add benches, trees, or anything else i have the feeling it will still feel empty. I suggest making it smaller, and if you need more space make it bigger gradually. That way you'll make sure the map is correctly filled and on its right proportions. Also play with the trees, the shape of the river, the streets and all those things to make it look way more natural. Don't know what's going on there, but i guess it's part of your story. Moving on...

                                Spoiler:


                                I have two questions -

                                How many species do you think i should add to a forest like this? I first had 8 different species in the morning, 8 in the night, and 7 in the day, but i think that's a bit too much...any ideas?

                                What do you think of this grass? Do you think it fits the map or a Gen 3 grass tile would be better? (It's a gen 3 styled game, btw)

                                That being said, looking forward to your advice and opinions!

                                  @RaulCortez, I have no clue how many species you could put in that size of map but you seem to want a lot.
                                  Everything looks the same color which makes it kinda monetary (not sure if that is the correct word)

                                  Some interiors for Pallet Town, I find them hard to do so I could use some feedback. Thanks In Forward!

                                            This is the pokemon game I making based around the concept of "each screen fits a map exactly". Every-time you go onto a new screen that "screen" will be discovered and registered on your map. The world will be around 169 of these maps (including cities). However not all maps will be so dense and many will future multiple paths (You will be able to tackle a few gyms in any order you like).

                                            However this is the opening area of my game. The top two screens is the village of Vothamos (some things I'm working on still: Customizing the Professors lab, creating or finding some farm tiles and adding a scarecrow). The gateway leads to the town of Ekali

                                            I'm still working on implementing a few things many because I discovered that RPG maker excepts transparency So I going to figure out how to do some animated transparent water hopefully xD

                                            Any comments on the map design so far?

                                              Ye print screen, paste and crop it. Just like you did It will be very easy to get lost in that map. Its just a series of trees and bushes. Nothing that a player could use for orientation. Add some dirt paths, add some water perhaps, elevate/lower some areas, add unique features or even recolour some trees (I think recolouring the leaves in a few trees is such a good idea that I'm gonna go do it in my own project xD). . Its a good start though :-)

                                              Later, if you want to take in-game shots of your game, you can do that by pressing ALT+Printscreen

                                              Holly. Man these are amazing. I like how you re-imagined the classic locations yet you stayed true to the original. I do have a question though... if its an online game... shouldn't you be worried about choke points? Or could players just walk over each other? You potentially have quite a few there. :-)
