Anyway, here it is

    Let me know what you think. I have more maps coming soon.
    I think the size of the map is fine. My only negative comment is that for a pretty neat, clean town, the branches seem a bit out of place. The branches right by the water are fine, but the rest seem a bit out of place, IMO.

    It seems to me like you may be using too many different trees with different styles. They don't all fit together very well, I'd personally take away one or two of them. The large mushrooms, the pillar-like rocks, and the white, blue and black items next to some light posts seem out of place as well. That said, I like how the town itself is mapped, it is well distinguished from the rest of the forest but still has a wild feel to it. I'd consider changing the stone tiling to dirt to make it a little more foresty, but the stone works alright too. Great job on staying away from a boxy looking map.

    Not bad! The only thing I see is the trees - some is all lined up, and some is scattered around. I'd try to keep the style more consistent.

      Well, here are some more maps from my project, which I have decided to call Pokèmon Bronze.

      Spoiler:


      This is the redone starting town, now called Aloe Town


      This is Route 1.


      And this is Lento Town, which is the second town.

      Once again, I am happy with any and all feedback, so please give me your opinion on these maps.

        Well. This is another of my maps. A Snowy one, that was actually for a non Pokemon Game, even if made in its style. This is Jolly Town and was made up based on a old map of a 'Friend' of Mine. The Building at the Top is a Art Museum.
        (Tiles by LighterZein and PrinceLegendario)


        (The Trees aren't blured out tiles, it just happen do to the Fact it was printed directly from RPG Maker XP, at actual size, they look okay)

        Also my opinions on Unknown Maps. I love to see GSC, and, even if the tiles were actually like that, I don't think the white behind some houses looks that nice. Still, I love the way that you did. This actually makes me want to map a GSC Map :I

        Well, Opinions on this map?

          Your map has lots of variety and I think it looks great overall
          Are you mapping for fangames?

            Well, I am just programming one called 'Fakemon Celestite' (Is on the Begginer's Showcase), but I am not graphic designer, leader or Mapper of it. I might make a game soon but in RTP Style of RPG Maker maybe.

            Anways, here is another map I made back then in Game Maker, with Effects from Photoshop.

            Comments on this one?

              I think it's a great map. The lighting is a little bit overdone but the map is clean, detailed and it looks easy to navigate. Good job!

              Here's a map I made not so long ago.



              Comments and suggestions would be appreciated.

                  It's a good looking map. However, the waterfalls clash with the water. (different color) So you might want to fix that.

                      My one comment is that there should be more water on the higher levels. Such a small lake on the top there wouldn't feed a waterfall for very long. I feel like a stream should feed into it. The opposite happens with the upper right lake - a large waterfall feeds into a small lake. I would connect it to the rest of the streams.

                            @Riansky; This is a well designed map, and I love the tiles and palettes you've used, however a few things of note:

                            -The cliffs you use are vertical, meaning that, at present, the stiars you have are being presented as a ladder in terms of dimensiality (shut up, it's a word if I say it is). What you need to do is add another tile of stairs so that it is at least three tiles high, preferably four. Think about the whole pythagoras thing if you aren't sure what I mean.
                            -Speaking of the cliffs, they apparently disappear when you get to the trees. What you should do is remove all your trees from where the cliffs run into them and below, take the cliffs out to the edge of the map, then replace your trees accordingly.
                            -You appear to have some kind of omni-directional shadows coming off your houses. Pick a direction and stick to it.
                            -The four-wide path at the bottom left of the upper tier is quite disconcerting. Probably best to keep it to three-wide.
                            -The top right house should probably be moved left two tiles and the soil be placed within the (extended) fence, with the path widened out to the house and the two tiles next to the letterbox of the left house made into just regular grass.

                            Hopefully that makes sense. Great work on this map, mate.

                              @Aamelo everyone is a critic.... i really like your maps they are IMO very well done, professionally done even... just my opinion however. but if i were making a fan game i'd ask you to map for me....

                                A new map for my fan game: Pokemon Melanite. This will be a part of the post game. Any criticism would be appreciated.

                                I give you: Ruïn, the underwater city.

                                Spoiler:


                                The buildings there are two of are normal houses, and the one with the design is the city elder's house, who teaches a special move. The large building is a gym.

                                  That looks amazing, and it's an original idea too.

                                    That looks amazing, and it's an original idea too.
                                    Thank you. Here is the other half of the city. This includes a large market area, and still needs a bit of work.

                                        Thank you. I like the ideas here. I also like how it is all on water, which is original. I noticed in the first one that the sunken ship is ontop of some of the small rocks. Remove the rocks and it will look better. At least just the ones that it overlaps.

                                            Very nice maps. I know this isn't the place to ask, but are those beach tiles still tiles, or do you have BW sand auto tiles. I can't find them anywhere, and if you have them, would you be willing to share?
