    I like it ... it's really basic but nice looking ... perfect for route 2 if you're starting with smaller towns. The only thing I don't like is that small 4 tiles behind the first stairs. It kinda looks off to me ...

    Well then, it sure has been a while since I last posted here. Allow me to present you Rumbleseed Village. I just felt like mapping today, and I'm rather proud of the final result. I think I might even use it as the starter town of my new game. As you can see, with an exit to both the north as the east side of the town, a cave and the entrance to a forest, there's plenty to explore here.
    Feedback is much appreciated. =D

    Very late reply, but I figured since no one had replied yet I may as well.

    I mentioned this is discord I think, but I do very much like this map. It really does give off the feel of a starter town and you really have used the FR:LG tiles well. I mean, you even made a very distinct and clear treeline while using multiple types of trees.

    My only real negatives have to do with how this map would actually work as a starter town. It looks like one, but I'm not so sure if it would play like one. Right off the bat it can lead to 4 different places, considering there will be a short time when the player won't have any pokemon, that is a lot of road blocks to set up. And even after they get their first pokemon, it would feel overwhelming to have 4 different paths open straight away. Maybe you could work the cave or forest into an intro sequence sort of thing, like where you have to go do something for the prof. in the cave or forest, and then you move on to one of the north or east exits afterwards, but even with that, it would only eliminate one path.

    I think I may have rambled about that a bit much, aesthetically, this map is perfecto, loving the little bits of greenery growing on the side of the cliff.

    Thank you! I understand that having 4 paths right off the bat will come across as confusing and overwhelming, but I think I got that covered.

    First off, my region is rather prone to earthquakes, and a recent landslide has made the mountain pass north rather trecherous, especially for a novice trainer. The cave is rather small, and is actually of no particular interest in the early game, as you won't even encounter any wild Pokemon there.
    This basically leaves the forest and the eastern route, you'll get your first Pokemon for a certain quest in the woods. Once that's done, you can finally start your journey, venturing east!

    I hope this makes some sense, I don't want to spoil too much of the story (possibly because I have yet to flesh it out), but I think this provides enough context for the map.

    That sounds like a pretty solid idea, good to see you had already thought about it, i look forward to seeing this map come together in a playable game one day :)
