Map of the Month


You have until the 1st of December to vote for your favorite cave map. Look at all three carefully before you vote! and make sure Luck doesn't win again
Ms. Manipulation is working on Map of the Month emblems for the winners~

[assistance=Making pretty maps and winning Map of the Month]Spheal's Words of Wisdom
So, there were lots of pretty cave maps this month. But, some were too simple. Simplicity is pretty, but very simple looking maps isn't pretty. Spheal thinks every map you make should have something that makes it unique. Perhaps some different tiles, ponds around the map, even crystals around the cave's walls. There were also maps that were too small. Small maps can be simple, since they probably won't be used much anyway, but they're not Map of the Month material. Some maps looked nice but the tiles made them look bad. The palettes and the way the tiles were inserted makes the tiles and the map look ugly. And the tiles were actually nice, since Manipulation's map used the same tiles as the other two maps, but looked much better.[/assistance]

Entries


These are the prettiest cave maps in this month's contest, at least in my opinion. Manipulation had nothing to do with the choosing of the maps, unless he manipulated me, but I wouldn't know. Sorted by time of posting.

I can't see Luck's map :'(
Also, Manipulation's map? Really? I though Laidjon*'s map was better by a mile :\
Oh and don't try to deny it with Spheal's "Words of Wisdom".

    I vote for Mitchel's map.
    Despite it being square in the corners, his map requires you to wind through some thin tunnels and has a moderately good amount of trainers. It isn't full of it or too empty.
    Manipulation had a nice map, but all of the water just makes it look annoying to travel through. And although dark palettes are very fitting for cave maps, the shade just...irked me.

    I can't see my map either ;o;
    And stop being a tease Christos, I saw what you said about me before you edited your post D:<

      Thanks =)

      But about the three maps.
      I have to vote for Mitchel1's map. It's the best out of these three
      Manipulation's map is good, but it hasn't got much variety of tiles. I don't see a 2*2 rock anywhere.
      Luck's map is ok. Some areas are too cramped, some areas are too empty.

      So you claim that Spheal doesn't know better? Silly~ Spheal is a pretty blue Spheal who has years of experience critiquing maps because there's nothing else to do in Sphealland except look at pretty hax maps and see what makes them special and unique. <3 Spheal is right. Spheal is always right. Anyways, I actually really like Luck's map. XD; It has those pretty crystals and it really reminds me of those crystals in other games like harvest moon and I have this little thought in my head if I break one I'll get a thunder/fire/water/leaf/moon stone. XD; So that's the one I voted for~

      I already have. :3 I said I didn't pick any maps that I thought were too small or simple to be chosen for Map of the Month.

        I voted for Luck's map.
        The cave walls seem very naturally shaped, and unlike the other two entries, the map follows the "dugout" style of cave mapping. Almost every carved out space is used as a unique playable portion of the map, giving it a very complex and full feeling. Finally, the crystals add a great finishing touch to it.

        While the idea of a cave centered around bodies of water is interesting, the concept seems a bit overabused in Manipulation's cave. After a while, the same "ladder/land/water/land/ladder" pattern present in almost every subsection of the cave gets repetitive. Also, some of the spaces seem rather cramped.

        Mitchel1's map is very good, I won't disagree with that. However, the outer border is pretty much a square, which isn't necessarily a bad thing in this case, but when compared to Luck's map, it doesn't do much good for it. Some spaces are a bit too open, especially the wide open plateau in the center right.

        Good entries all around, though. Congrats to all 3 of you for the excellent maps. O:

          Oh, I didn't know that one had to show the events in the map in order to be considered for winning the contest. I'll have to try that next time.

          Anyway, I voted for mitchel1's map, based on the fact that it has a good mix of different tiles and achieving a balance of beauty and playability. It would be a very fun map to play in and explore, in my personal opinion.

          I voted for Luck, I thought Manipulation had a better mapping style but the tile and palette combination made the map very confusing to my eyes.

          Uh, I'm not really sure how to respond to this. But I will say this: I never doubted Spheal's experience in the field of "hax maps". I just thought that Laidjon* made very effective use of the standard tileset and created a map that really stood out from the others.

              Your not the only one it appears.

              It took me awhile to consider my vote this time around, and it came down to the mixtures of tiles and palettes, complexity, and overall feel that I get from the map. And I ended up voted for Luck's map. I loved this map for two Main reasons, No "flashy tiles" and nice complex layout. I also like that it uses crystals (Duh) since the other two didn't use them. This map makes the normalish tiles nicely, It doesn't need flashy tiles to make it look good. I also like that he made a difficult shortcut that could save you a lot of time, the cracked floor that is. To comment on the other two maps, Mitchel's was "ehhhh" to me, it didn't look too special to stand out to me, and it was kinda square around the corners. While Manipulation's did stand out, the palettes kinda played with my eyes and got me pretty confused, it's tiles were really good, and it was complex and looked like it would take quite awhile to navigate, but the palettes ruined it for me.

              Final verdict being Luck's map!

                  Manipulation got my vote.
                  I don't like Luke's crystals, as they just don't fit on the tiles(in my opinion)
                  The cave of Manipulation also got a good color palette.

                      Sorry Christos, but it looks like Luck is going to win again. =(

                      Maybe a bit of poll hack could do the trick, eh?

                        I personally don't count the first one as a win. I just 'won' because I had a big map last time D;
