Felmore Town by Rayquaza-dot Felmore Town by Rayquaza-dot
Been a while since I've uploaded a map.

In this instance I wish I had a previous submission to compare this to since this was a long time coming. For those of you that have played the demo, you'll have no doubt arrived in Felmore Town, home of the first gym, and seen a completely random-arse map. Originally Felmore Town was made when I started this game and my god, I was bad at mapping.

Fortunately I've completely remade the town, and I'm far happier with it now that I have.

EDIT: Improved the map, as per feedback. For comparison, the previous version can be found here

EDIT 2: Added more detail to the map.

DO NOT RIP/STEAL TILES

It's a good map man! I think you're doing well in making things a bit cleaner looking and improving on your level design also. I think you should experiment with the detail shown outside the traverse-able bounds of your map. I personally think GameFreak did really well on level design but aesthetically their detail leaves some things to be desired. They fixed this a bit in Gen 7, by adding detail outside of walkable areas. Anyway, your mapping is improving a lot, I just think you would improve if you experimented with the shape of your mountains instead of hiding everything with trees. This is a town in the mountains so I feel you should have mountains outside of convenience. In addition to this, I think the town is lacking a little character and mystique. What you would benefit from is some patches of water that the player can surf late game to find items, or meet an interesting NPC hiding away for some reason...

I did a VERY quick sketch over your map using brown and blue to show mountains and water respectively, and where I think they could fit. Looks great, but if you're looking to take your mapping to the next level this is the kind of detail I suggest :)

It's not often that I get advice as in-depth as this. I'll definitely take your advice into consideration, as I was thinking about putting ponds in the map but I could never find a way to fit them in. Thanks for the feedback man, I always appreciate it. :)
