    Okay, in motion it looks better.
    I'm currently making the battle engine and decided to release a demo when I'm done with it.
    This is a 'placeholder' stadium: a transparent ground with a pokeball symbol inside and it's in the sky, lol

        i would move the flowers from the middle, because its right in the middle of the town,
        so people would be walking all over them, especially with no footpath,
        I would move them a little south east.
        and put a sign near it, saying the town name, or something.

        adjust the mountain/hill where the building stands on, and add some boulders to mix it up, that should make it look good.
        Thanks for the tips and it is Little Root Town. I agree that is does need a foot path. I can't believe I forgot the sign for the town name... I also agree that some boulders will make it look better. should have a better version soon.

        It is supposed to be little root town. I agree that it is a bit empty. I may make it smaller so it looks less empty then add sopme details from above.

        Academy Garden. Sort of a garden/park, squirtles run wild, The academy that the garden belongs to is to the south, a route is to the north.
        Spoiler:


        Brevis town (misspelled on the pic, brevis means small is latin)
        Just a junction town, north is situs mountain, south is route 2, east is Arbor Forest (arbor means wood in latin )
        Spoiler:

        EDIT: heres an alternative version. The 2x2 rocks have their proper floor terrain, which one do you think is better, I like the "Fauly" version for some reason.
        alternative version.
        Spoiler:


        Route 2. nothing special. north is brevis town.
        Spoiler:

        They all look really nice. On teh first picture, I don't think those the red building go so well withthe rest of the tiles.

            A town map in my first game I am currently making. I have it on the thread, but I think I'll get more opinions here!

              You've used Kyletrees and ripped HGSS trees here.. they don't blend together very well. And.. dude. Way too much flowers Maybe replace the flowers with a path of sandy dirt? Next to that, nice layout. Though I'm not such a big fan of the older Kyletiles, way too dull if you ask me.. Maybe use his newer ones instead?

                Not a very attractive map, I'm sorry to say. The paths leading out of the town are far too large, and there are way too many flowers clustered together throughout the town. You definitely need a clearly defined path in this town, and to stick with only one variety of tree.

                    The entire town uses a set of small flowers for it's pathway(It's a creative, yet original way of showing off my skills.)The town itself has a rich and varying soil.Excuse the entrance paths, as they are no longer part of this map. I'm hoping the players may understand simple things like these that make a map original. Thanks for your opinion, though. I'll try to incorporate these, if I can...

                    Here is another map.



                    Before you say it, yes, I am aware that the rock of choice isn't good with the grass on top.That is why this map can be dubbed "unfinished".The new HG SS tiles contain a great fix for this. I want a constructive opinion on the concept. I'll try to get the new version on soon.The idea is to show off my region's lush geography.The next route is also rocky. The location is at the base of an inactive volcano.

                      Besides mixing Kyledove trees with HGSS trees, I actually really like your first map.
                      This one is very nice too, and I am thinking it would look even better if the rocks were replaced with green mossed over rock tiles or some such.

                      It seems most people here can't appreciate a good map unless it's "cookie-cutter" perfect, but I like the originality, especially the flower path. It's something they would have done in GSC or RSE if you ask me. Good Job.

                        Thank you! When it comes to maps, no empty spaces are aloud. I try hard to create the most original idea to fill them in. I am new, with this being my first game and all, so when I read feedback such as yours, I'm inspired to continue to work harder. I'll see what I can do about the rocks. Thanks again.

                            It's not final...but oh well. It's Cobalt Island, the starting town or isle.
                            The white bit is a runway....

                              The runway's very original. Though, the map looks a bit dull to me. What about adding an extra house or some different trees?

                              Now it's time for my screenshot which I'm going to leak personally.
                              The screenshot comes from my game: Pokémon, Legend of the Moon Goddess, which will have a showcase thread at the end of March. This is taken in Harbor City, the hometown of the protagonist.

                              Is that the 4th gen 3d effect..?
                              If you've got that working on rmxp, this'll be the most popular game on here!

                              Apart from that, it needs better borders in my opinion, even if that would mess with the 3dness.

                                  It's just Essentials' Perspective mode. And what kind of borders do you mean?

                                  How do you mean strange? I can't give them outlines, it just messes them up.

                                  Got to check that feature out.
                                  And I mean like around the building and a few other things, it just looks a bit too like the main games, which isn't always a good things.
                                  I can see you're getting inspiration from Pokemon Jade version, butit just seems to work better in there than this.

                                    I'm not getting inspired by Pokémon Jade. I've had this for much longer, it's just I've never released it to the public. And why isn't it good it looks a bit like the official games?

                                    Now it's time for my screenshot which I'm going to leak personally.
                                    The screenshot comes from my game: Pokémon, Legend of the Moon Goddess, which will have a showcase thread at the end of March. This is taken in Harbor City, the hometown of the protagonist.
                                    Lookidy good. Can't wait to check it out.

                                          @ The Dewitty: I like the tiles! Lol I love the Olivine Lighthouse, just haven't gotten around to ripping it (too lazy). The only problem with the screenshot is the 3D effect. It only works well if the buildings are also put into perspective. I was thinking of someone helping me make an intensive script that would have buildings as events and have them change to a certain position depending on the distance from the player, but 1) I dunno how to script, and 2) it would seem like a long process for a simple feature. But if a willing scripter were able to help me...

                                          Anyways, enough of a birdwalk. The content is beautiful, but the perspective messes it up. I can't wait to see your game showcase thread!

                                            Why don't you wait with uploading it until you've finished it. You can't get any good crit this way.
