Decided to keep a general thread for all my maps instead of constantly creating new ones.

Warning that all maps are SPOILERS and should be treated as such. Do not view if you do not want to be spoiled.

Most recent Maps will be kept in this post, all others in the next posts.

Please PM me if you find something I do not have on the map yet - especially treasure and nest spawn co'ords.
DO NOT POST CO'ORDS OR SPAWNS ON THIS THREAD.

Thanks so very much, Tori! I really would love to know how you go about making maps, it is something I always wanted to know! Come the mega zone, I am going to try and make maps with notes!

I go around the map myself and get screenshots of each area, and then I piece it all together in one of my art programs piece by piece. When I have to edit things out - I go into the sites code to grab the individual tile piece, the artwork itself, so I can easily cover up what's out of place. This is mostly my avatar 39240932 times and the treasure/boss nodes for the blank maps.

Then I go and grab the individual tiles for treasure chests and egg spawns - and wait for co'ords to pour in. I get a lot from various sources haha. I'm always very grateful for the help with what I can't get myself. It's very much a group effort at that point.

It's just a lot of puzzle fitting - various areas overlap a ton, and you have to work on a grid to know where to place individual tile sets for covering errors. Plus sometimes you have to work filler if there's a blank spot on the map due to being unable to access it - there were a ton of gaps in the winterfest one i had to fill in myself with whatever I found suitable.

I'm really bad at explaining my processes, so sorry if this answer is just more confusing. x{ I'm eager to see what you come up with though! I plan on doing a map of the megazone myself as well, so it'll be interesting to see how the two compare. c:

Ahhh, most of it makes sense! I figured screenshots and piecing together, what art program do you use for that? The grid was what I was wondering about, are they in the art program, or is it something you figure on your own? I am hoping that when the Mega zone starts, that a coordinated effort would work for it as well! I don't usually do chat... I am much more a lurker, but for that I would definitely be in the thick of it!

Thanks so much for answering me! I very much appreciate all the work that went into the map and answering my question! :)

The specific program I use is Paint Tool Sai - I find it easier to line up things on it since it actually Doesn't have any instant snap-to-grid or anything that makes lining up the pixels difficult. The grid I use is one I've made entirely myself to match the size of the tiles of the map - so I know exactly where each tile ends and begins. it's a checkerboard pattern that sits on an overlay layer of the map as I work on it - here's a small example of the map with the grid on.

Understandable! A coordinated group effort would probably be best on the megazone. I like to lurk myself, but that's also something I'd be in the thick of it for.

Thank You!! I'm glad the work is always appreciated. I really love to make maps so I'm glad others can enjoy them as much as I do. x}

Oh no, no need to apologize at all! It is just a learning curve thing with me, I have to self teach myself just about everything! I have no basic art programs or grid techniques, so I have to teach myself! You have given me a start! If I get time, after the holidays, I will try to practice on the fest or some other area!

Thanks so much for your time and help!
