20th October 2006, 7:36 PM


;078; Sorry to say this, but I will not be updating this thread anymore. I will be starting a new thread for a different region. Thanks for all the comments guys! I will keep the thread up so others can look, and I might even do the maps every so often. But expect the next thread to be just a good and better than this one!

20th October 2006, 8:04 PM
aJust to say please reply in the threads! It makes m want to do them more, and the more you post, the more I will try and do!

20th October 2006, 8:07 PM
Yay, those are very nice made!

Meh, still didn't find something where you can improve on...

It's nice! Nice!

20th October 2006, 8:08 PM
they are all very nice, but what happened to your old thread?
Will you be making a fakedex for the region?..

20th October 2006, 8:14 PM
I decided to close it, but I wanted to bring it back again xD

And probally no to the fakedex question, because Im not good at making them.

20th October 2006, 8:27 PM
Most of your towns have about the same theme. Be flexible a bit.

20th October 2006, 8:33 PM
Well it is suppsoed to be a bushy region, but in some places it will be quite hilly, and in one of the towns it will be on a hill thing.

Also Ive noticed on Nagra Town in the top right that some trees are missing. I will fiz that.

Hopefully Holderness City will be up tomorrow, and the Nagra Town part will also be updated tomorrow.

20th October 2006, 8:59 PM
wow, this is really good!
i just saw some things i think is quite odd.
on routes 251, 252, 253 and 254 some trees are missing around the edges. now, it looks like you can go all directions.
on route 256, the top is missing.
on route 258, on the right, there are some water tiles that are mirrored.
try to fix this, and they will be perfect! =D

20th October 2006, 9:04 PM
I noticed the route 258 one in the other thread, the others I didnt notice. As well I will fix them later.

20th October 2006, 11:52 PM
These are still pretty good I have to admit. Keep up the good work

21st October 2006, 7:51 AM
Just to say I have finished Holderness City! *cheers*. It wil lcome up and the first post ones aready done might have some edits.

.Bright Side.
21st October 2006, 5:33 PM
what method do you use to make your maps?

ALso, eveything has the same thing, I see no diversity at all.
Make a rocky or icy town at least...

21st October 2006, 5:57 PM
I am going to make an icy town in the town and a town on rock if you know what I mean.

Ad I use simple copying and pasting xD

21st October 2006, 6:11 PM
Just to say I will try and update it sometime tomorrow or Monday!

.Bright Side.
21st October 2006, 7:39 PM
If you just copy and paste, would it kill you to connect the maps instead of making all the black lines?

21st October 2006, 8:18 PM
Because I find it easier to tile, because Im not very good at lining them normally. Just if I untile them on Paint....

22nd October 2006, 9:57 AM
Just to say Im updating Route 256 at the moment and the updations and Holderness City (which I dont really like that much) should be up soon! Sometime I might even expand the cities/routes and edit them, make them bigger and whatnot, but that wont be for a while.

~Lati Master~
22nd October 2006, 10:16 AM
Your region is really cool,

Too bad your not doing a Fakedex.

22nd October 2006, 1:21 PM

Heres the new map. Ive said before that I dcont really like it that much.

Well anyway Route 252 is coming and I am going to make it big! with water some rocky bits. Also the Safara Zone is near the end/start of Route 253, so after Ive finished the next city, which will be rocky, I will start doing one part of the PokePark (just like Safarai Zone)

25th October 2006, 8:57 AM
Im just around half way doing it. I will try to finish it for tomorrow/friday. It is a big map for me.

27th October 2006, 8:21 AM
Will be up today!! Just adding grass / a few trees at the top then I will sortof be done!

Also please post.

27th October 2006, 12:12 PM

Here it is, the biggest map Ive done. I hope you like it, the next one will be rockier!

27th October 2006, 12:14 PM
Theyre quite cool i enjoy looking at peoples sprites that are good

Keep up the good work


27th October 2006, 1:18 PM
there really nice maps
The titling is very VERY aggrivating but it's a lot better than some of the other crappy fake regions I've seen

27th October 2006, 2:51 PM
Your big map is awesome!

Perhaps you could do an island village in the middle of nowhere...

edit: YAY new rank!

Does the rank up dance and makes a cake...


27th October 2006, 3:00 PM
Will you or did you already add the Menta world map to the Final World Map Thread 2.0? The maps are good, just don't like the tile. I make towns without them. But anyway, For the map, perhaps you could add some little island land mass towards the top right corner.

27th October 2006, 3:34 PM
Around when I finish the maps I might start a Menta Islands (just like the Orange Islands, but with a few more islands. That will be situated near to the top right but will have its own region map.

And yes I have posted my region in the World Map Thread (check page 130)

27th October 2006, 3:54 PM
Can you explain in which order the maps go in.

27th October 2006, 4:03 PM
Towns - Go in the order you would get to them in the game
Routes - Just in order

27th October 2006, 9:40 PM
cool simply awesome.Plain incredible! get someone to help you make a fakedex!

28th October 2006, 8:02 AM
nah. This is a one man job really. If I get better at doing them ok. Im not that good at the shading though

28th October 2006, 12:22 PM
Well, it would ruin your 1 man pride.

28th October 2006, 12:40 PM
Sorry guys but I dont have my memory stick with the map Im doing at the moment, so I wont be able to work on it :( But I will later!

28th October 2006, 1:14 PM
Sorry guys but I dont have my memory stick with the map Im doing at the moment, so I wont be able to work on it :( But I will later!

How long is later?

28th October 2006, 1:40 PM
By either tomorrow night but will probally start working on one Monday.

28th October 2006, 1:47 PM
By either tomorrow night but will probally start working on one Monday.

You in GMT?

28th October 2006, 1:59 PM
Yes I am. Instead I will probally be on a different website and doing maps for the Johto sticky thread Im co-owning!

28th October 2006, 2:05 PM
Yes I am. Instead I will probally be on a different website and doing maps for the Johto sticky thread Im co-owning!

And I'm art criticicing.

28th October 2006, 2:20 PM

28th October 2006, 3:20 PM

I don't think he is. He's a map maker, nmjot spriter/programmer.

28th October 2006, 3:40 PM
Nope, just map making!

28th October 2006, 3:43 PM
Nope, just map making!
so no game?

28th October 2006, 10:24 PM
your maps are truely excellent. In fact you have inspired me (Something most people fail to do for me on this forum) I'm starting a fake region to and would like some tips on how to name the tows and cities.

Holderness city really reminds me of Celadon city for some reason.

I have a naming tip. In all regions cities keep to bases for names.
Kanto- Flowers and Colours
Hoenn- Parts of a plant

29th October 2006, 10:21 AM
Thanks but I already knew that. my problem is that I can't think of a subject to base them on... also, where did you get some of these sprites? they don't look like any of the ones I've found. E.G the lab in the first town.

29th October 2006, 10:53 AM
It's just an expanded version of a normal house.

1st November 2006, 2:45 AM
Dude, what system do u use?

1st November 2006, 8:09 AM
I use Paint to do my maps. xD. Anyway soz for not bumping and updating, but its because Ive been busy working on Cherrygrove City, and being at the Official Johto Revamp Thread.

But I will tell you this. I will be working on the next route when I get back from school!

(Some of my names I just made up, and some of the names are from streets of where I live, Hull (Springbank, Holderness, Overbrook they are ones off my head). Just to give a apoiler, the big city will be called Marfleet City (which is an area of Hull)

Also Johto - Plants
Kanto - Colors (didnt know what Hoenn was)

1st November 2006, 3:48 PM
Hoenn doesn't have a naming scheme, HaloWarrior.

1st November 2006, 5:26 PM
I never said that anyway. It was Manectric.

1st November 2006, 5:33 PM
:O wow it is good. i think u out did yourself. one thing that could make it better is using D/P graphics rather than 3rd gen graphics. but anyway good job.

Umbreon Rider
1st November 2006, 8:33 PM
do you REALLy care about menta enough to sacrafice ur 1 man pride???
no: ok bye

yes: get a programmer to stik the maps together and make 1 clikable map( starts from reigon map 2 route and city map...)


2nd November 2006, 9:24 AM
halowarrior, i have a question, how many maps would you say someone should have before they start a thread like this?

The maps are awesome

3rd November 2006, 2:25 AM
Well, obviously, I'm not halowarrior, but I would suggest at least three, to give people a taste of what they will make in the future and how much they will support the creator. But hey, I'm not HW.

3rd November 2006, 8:28 AM
Around 2-4 or something. I actually started with one but grew after quite abit.

4th November 2006, 3:36 AM
these maps are great

4th November 2006, 4:18 PM
Thanks. Just to say I am trying to finish the next map (sorry for long time waiting) then I might (but its only a MIGHT) shut this down and concentrate on the Johto Thread while doing some of these maps every so often.

If I do decide to close it I wil lstill keep it open so you can see!

8th November 2006, 7:27 PM
Im going to try to finish the next map of tommorow if I can. Sorry for big delay, but school is getting to me, Ive been at Johto Thread, but sortof giving it up because its turning into a spamhole, and I just want to go back to making maps for here again!

8th November 2006, 7:34 PM
sounds like you're school is nearly as bad as my college, although i've more or less dropped the shop that i was working in

8th November 2006, 8:04 PM
Nah. I am new and settlingh into school. Im getting bullied. And also Ive been doing other stuff on the internet!

8th November 2006, 8:50 PM
Yeah, I know how you feel. Please make more maps, they are awesome!

9th November 2006, 6:42 PM
Cool! Route 263 is finished! Ill get it up later.

Other than that I might make the region map abit different

11th November 2006, 12:53 AM
I can't wait to see the region map. You maps are awesome.

11th November 2006, 8:09 AM
Only an edit or two, nothing that interesting.

11th November 2006, 3:24 PM
Your maps are awesome. ^^ Out of all the ones I've seen, yours are some of the best. Well done, I have no crit for these. Can't wait to see more.

11th November 2006, 3:42 PM
You should make the region map more, game style you know, smaller.

13th November 2006, 6:37 PM
No, your maps are almost perfect, maybe add some people to it!!!

14th November 2006, 2:47 AM
can i use your maps

14th November 2006, 2:54 AM
doo u guys know if there are rpg makers for MAC computers

14th November 2006, 3:54 AM
what is that thing in the water in daytona city?

14th November 2006, 11:39 AM
pnoiba - there is nothing

natty - Ive got an answer for that, no!

Anyway I will get the next map up today! I am really sorry for the really long wait, and I will try to get into updating them regulary like I used to.

14th November 2006, 10:52 PM
Yeah, I'm sure the whole Johot Revamp thing threw you off, I am also trying to update my Map thread more often aswell, as I have many other things to do and such.
Oh, and all of you people who like to look at halowarrior's map thread, come check out mine! (Link is in my sig) and tell me how I can improve if it is possible.

15th November 2006, 9:24 PM
Bad News: Im going to sleep



God it feels good to update this again.

17th November 2006, 4:47 AM
DOOO u guys know! if they make rpg makers for MAC?

Umbreon Rider
17th November 2006, 7:38 AM

Maps are improving a lot i am sorry you are getting bullied and might close this down.
EDIT: w00t new rank!!!!

17th November 2006, 4:52 PM
Umbreon Im not closing it down since Its getting better and the Johto Thread is not there.

Anyway I have started on the next town but I wont be able to do any work on it at the weekend.

I will try and have done maybe Wednesday/Thursday.

18th November 2006, 5:19 AM

Maps are improving a lot i am sorry you are getting bullied and might close this down.
EDIT: w00t new rank!!!!

nooooooootttttt reaaaaalllllly, cuz they were talking about making an rpg game with those maps and the dud said no im just a map maker, so then i asked if they make rpg makers for mac, and u just got owned

18th November 2006, 7:44 AM
and its still dpsm.

Anyway if anyone wants to look Ive got a Cherrygrove City. I could put it up here just as a bonus for everyone waiting!

18th November 2006, 1:57 PM
Oh yeah, I never got to see it... I think route 253 is good, but it should go on longer. It doesn't look like it should end right at the top.
EDIT: OMG!! I just noticed that you have the day-care type fence in the route. I need that to complete my next town! Could I use it?

18th November 2006, 6:13 PM
Yeah you can. You can use it from the map if you wish and only need the bits on that map.

And yeah it could go on for a bit longer, but that will do!

Konion Champ
18th November 2006, 8:58 PM
Excellent job! I see nowhere to improve. Although some of the maps look a little jpg-pixelyish to me. It could just be the steam from the shower I just took. Bah! I'll forget about it! :D

18th November 2006, 9:05 PM
i think your maps look good... 10/10!!! lol, really good...

18th November 2006, 9:25 PM
great maps, i want to give this an 11/10 but that would be stupid so here is your score


18th November 2006, 9:27 PM
lol thanks.

I think tomorrow Ill put a Cherrygrove Revamp up (not on the front though). On a post as a bonus! Its on my dads computer anyway (I think, or is the finished version at my mums)

Oh well xD

21st November 2006, 8:22 AM
Ok just to say I am at my mums now and I will try to make myself work on the map. At the moment Im abit half/half on shutting this and just doing the maps in my free time, and maybe have a different thread up, sorry.

Expect this to be not that good xD (loads of rock hills xD)

Locke Yggdrasill
21st November 2006, 8:44 AM
The world map looks like the edges are too rough and fake. Try smoothing them out a little.

21st November 2006, 5:00 PM
I think Ive made my decision.

Im going to stop updating this thread, but I will start a new one! (and will do maps for this one every so often).

For when the next region thread does come up, expect better region map, longer maps and whatnot!

Ill keep this up so others can look at it. Sorry, but I hope my next thread will be a sucsess and do better than this one!

21st November 2006, 10:46 PM
Why are you going to stop it?

22nd November 2006, 8:58 AM
Because its been lagging (barely any updates). Mainly because of the Johto Thread. I thought if I started out on a new leaf it would be like it used to be.

23rd November 2006, 12:51 AM
Oh, well that makes sense. Halowarrior, I don't think you posted it on Serebii, but Halo's new map thread is on my forums,(Soon to be an RPG) so if you guys want to see his already, you can see them there.

23rd November 2006, 5:03 PM
I will be making a new thread after Im into doing the route, or probally when Ive finished it!
