Iron Mapper
Iron Mapper is a mapping competition on Relic Castle. Each mapping competition, otherwise known as a "trial", will have a deadline clearly stated, and you will have this time to complete and submit a map according to the theme and criteria of the trial. Once all submitted maps are judged after the deadline (this depends on the volume of entries, usually a few days), the judges will post the results, and prepare for the next trial.

Trial 1. City Map

Deadline: Wednesday, May 22nd 2019

To start of season 4 in a big fashion let’s map a city. Lots of people, skyscrapers and maybe a mall. It might even contain a park or an industrial district. There are many different cities and you’re job is to map whichever one you want to see.

Have fun mapping!

The following criteria must be met:
  • Your map can be made with any tileset you want provided the tiles are public. You must include credits for the tiles with your submission if they aren't your own.
  • Your map cannot exceed 120x120 tiles.

Your judges for this trial are:

A tip from the judge:
"A city map is not defined by its size but by its feel! If the map is too big it’s usually not much fun to play!"

Notes: It is intended as a school-focused area. The big dark blue building is the main administration building for the school, the two lighter towers to the north are intended as the various classrooms and such, the towers to the right make up the residential area with a large shopping tower/mall and recreational park nearby!

Trial: I: City
Map Name: Oakmont

Critique Requested: Always happy to receive criticism on my work. Helps me make better maps.

Tiles: Blackvolution, Magiscarf (a little modification by me for transparent shadows)

Notes: This was a fun map to make! Made in Tiled, Oakmont is a hedge city in the forest of Oaksworth. A few people call home to this quaint place, including a few shops as well. Unfortunately, they are quite far out from civilization in a county, and the county isn't being funded well due to political tensions, so they don't have a Pokecenter. Thankfully, there is a healer who takes residence and heals weary travelers and trainers.

Trial: I: City
Map Name: Mercandon


Critique Requested: Certainly!

Made using base Essentials tiles and OWs.

Notes: Mercandon is a city with a little bit of everything: a thriving commerce center, a residential district near a hillside park, a thriving manufacturing and shipping region, an arts and leisure district, a boardwalk beside the beach, and the headquarters of a business whose profit margins are just a little too profitable to be believed (or legal...).

This was a fun map to work on. I really wanted to push myself, both by using just default tiles and by packing as much as possible into one map. From the original games, I took inspiration from the likes of Lilycove and Slateport with a little bit of Castelia and Malie City for flavor.

Trial: I: City
Map Name: Arkadiya Port Island.


Critique Requested: Dex Number 360, Wynaut?

Ame and the Pokemon Reborn Team, Jan and the Pokemon Rejuvenation team, Leilou's Emerald Outside Tileset, Base Essentials Tileset(s).
And then for the Pokemon OWs:

Notes: Arkadiya Port Island, a bustling metropolis where humans and Pokémon have come to enjoy the finer things in life, like overcrowded cities, Murkrow flying around everywhere, a vicious, blinding fog, unconscious old men, and, the pinnacle of luxury itself, standing on benches. So, like, I started this a week back or so and stopped for reasons I do not know. I got bored on this faithful night...morning, when I'm uploading this, and decided to finish it. I would have made the island a bit more complex in layout, but like, shore tiles hate me and I hate them, so like, rip my island. The darker color scheme for the tiles was selected to give the map more of that modern urban city feel. Anyway, gonna go pass out now, laters.

Trial: I: City
Map Name: Gardenia City


Critique Requested: Any/all critique allowed/wanted.

Credits: Made using the Base Tileset and OWs in Essentials.

Notes: Decided to support this event and map the next city in a fangame I am working on. Gardenia City is the hometown of the Professor of my region, as well as the region's main police branch office and the 3rd gym in the game. Y'all can tear me apart as you see fit. Cheers!
