I don't know if I'm entering. Fcking schoolwork is like killing my soul.

Also I can't find any of the palettes to use.

I'm guessing you folks are trying to use FEXP?

Because that thing is terrible for people who don't know what they're looking for.

If you're just starting out, use Tiled or Mappy because then the tileset isn't a jumbled mess like it is in FEXP.

If you compare these images you'll see that FEXP has a terrible GUI for map making:

FEXP - http://gyazo.com/cbc2240e188905a55b616c7b504d4bff

Mappy - http://gyazo.com/9255acf488aa9ff4f7cebba373d3080f

Tiled - http://gyazo.com/4d9a529d8cb9da555eafc62cf60ec2a4

They're all rather large images so be sure to scroll around.

Mappy was the first program I started using, but I couldn't figure out how to zoom in on the map; it was hurting my eyes so I moved to FEXP. I also was afraid I was using an inappropriate tileset (so many choices) so I thought it'd be better if I just use the ones already in FEXP :V

Yes, but when I tried to import the tileset you gyazo'd, it screwed up completely. I think it has to do with the lines in between each tile. Can you get me a link to the original tileset for either the castle set or the shrine set?

you have to use the tilesets in the DB ML, I think the folder is FIRE EMBLEM TILESETS, those should all work properly

Mew, if you want to zoom in on the map in Mappy just go to Map Tools up top and then the zoom options are at the bottom. I don't think it's possible to zoom in on the tileset though.

ML: http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=24982


EDIT: Also, there may be some confusion about what I meant with palette. I mean the coloring of the tileset can change to whatever you want it to.

Example: Here's what I posted in the OP: http://gyazo.com/d91df9b8a3f89530979d6328566f98d6

Here's another acceptable option: http://gyazo.com/3b830466c9ae82f20e4bcad5afb06fdd

Different colors but still the same castle tileset (Ya the FE8 one has a few more tiles but that doesn't matter.)

Feaw's tilesets are on the DB too I think?

and thanks, I appreciate it, this makes me feel dumb, not sure how I missed that since I was pretty intent about finding a way to zoom in. also just discovered that there is a Mac version of Mappy ohshi now I don't have to carry around my heavy PC

I was asking about the actual tileset names, because the actual name for the shrine set is 'Overworld Bern', I think. And the Plains one is 'Sacae Overworld'. That's what I meant.

Those are Feaw's names IIRC. I used the names that are used in Nightmare modules in the OP.

Wheeeeeeeeee

I decided to make this a prologue-type map, in case I ever decide to make a hack.

But, uh...I could only find a tileset with about half of the tiles of the mountain and shrine set. I don't know where the rest are.

Relevant Picture

See, about half of the tiles are missing.

Oh, that's because it's the FE7 version. FE8 added more tiles to the existing sets.
Either way you're fine.

When I attempt to import the file "Overworld Sacae_2.png", it tells me that there are missing DLL's... help!

Included with Mappy are 2 .dll files. "libpng12.dll" and "zlib.dll". Copy-paste both of those into folders containing tilesets and then try again.

People make this so much more complicated than it needs to be. XD

ML, I like zat map. It seems so simple, but it's still very beautiful for someone who doesn't do much mapping.

It may be a prologue map for a Hack if I ever make one.

So, it's 11:50 PM here on the 14th as of typing this. Today was the due date but I was hoping for more of a turnout since Mew and Yoshi at least seemed interested/tried giving it a shot.

I'm gonna extend this to Friday the 17th but if you're going to drop out then I'll just put up the poll sooner then.

I'm a little sad and disappoint that more peeps didn't enter :<

Here's my submission, it was fun to make though I still feel like I'm absolutely clueless about map making. Kind of wondering what the goods and bads are about this. :V


And question, is this what tilesets are supposed to look like? the row of tiles stacked together on the right side seemed a bit off to me, like the organization isn't totally working. I imported one of Feaw's tilesets into Tiled (which I like the most so far out of all of these map making tools)

IIRC Feaw moved that column to the far right so it would work better with Yeti's Image to Mappy file converter or something like that. If you're not trying to insert it into a ROM don't worry about it.

The biggest things that stand out to me are those discolored purple-with-some-red tiles and a lack of shading. Oh and the waterfalls in the bottom.
