@  Fire Blazer : (17 February 2018 - 01:31 AM) Idk, but hopefully not longer than 2 days, lol. Probably much less
@  xcrash1998 : (16 February 2018 - 02:13 PM) So you found a better host I guess.
For how long do think will the feshrine be down?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:44 AM) main thing is it'll probz just take a bit bcuz of how big the forums database is and stuff
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) so hopefully this goes relatively smoothly
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) ported over my other stuff first since it seemed easier and was a good basis for figuring stuff out
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) will probably do it tonight
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) ye
@  Idiot : (15 February 2018 - 12:21 AM) Thanks for the warning!
@  Fire Blazer : (14 February 2018 - 10:37 PM) so if you see the site go down soon, don't panic, I'm probably doing the move
@  Fire Blazer : (14 February 2018 - 10:37 PM) I'm going to try the switch thing soon probably
@  Fire Blazer : (14 February 2018 - 10:37 PM) HEY GUYS
@  Idiot : (13 February 2018 - 07:37 PM) Fantastic game though!
@  Idiot : (13 February 2018 - 07:36 PM) Even Zelda's horse ass of a voice actor had more range than him haha.
@  Idiot : (13 February 2018 - 07:35 PM) I see your point but all I was trying to say is I don't think throughout the entire game, he doesn't even crack a single smile. Though I understand the grim nature of the story. That's no excuse though even TP Link managed to be downright cheery at times. BOTW Link is just a cookie cutter silent protagonist with little to no emotion outside of his main goal.
@  xcrash1998 : (13 February 2018 - 07:05 PM) And then there are also the side quests which add to the personalities of each character.
@  xcrash1998 : (13 February 2018 - 07:04 PM) To expand on my comment.
There is a lot of interaction going on inside the game (with link actually gesturing a proper response and explaining)
@  xcrash1998 : (12 February 2018 - 11:25 AM) Well, Skyward Sword had a lot of interaction with people (with names) and didn't have any npc's without a name (if you ignore the robot civilisation), it makes a lot of sense looking at it this way.
@  Idiot : (12 February 2018 - 04:18 AM) Man, BOTW Link has no personality whatsoever. Skyward Sword Link is best Link.
@  kirant : (10 February 2018 - 09:39 PM) I missed the chance to destroy lots of spam :(. Most of them for me are just a post or two.

Welcome to my grand Sprite showing (even though 90% of these are shitty splices lmao)

First on the list are my Portraits

Spoiler

Second on the list are my maps. So far, I've really only made two maps, I'm only going to show one of them xD

Spoiler

Anyways, that's all I have today

Have a nice day

So after a lot of work, I decided to make another map, this one depicting the village Matt lived in before bandits attacked. Please note that saying my map looks like shit isn't helping me in any way no matter how true it is

I'm not 100% sure but I am 99% sure that you only used a single grass tile in the entire map, that's a BIG... ummm "no-no" doesn't sound serious enough, just don't do it it's called tile spam in case anyone says it like that.

 

The river that crosses the map is very boring, and VERY straight, that's also "wrong" (since there's not really something right). Try to make it curve and flow from one end of the map to the other instead of just making a straight line. Preemptive advice here, when you add paths don't make them straight either since old roads weren't straight or even planned most of the time.

 

Add more stuff. Paths to start off, the middle of the map is very empty, if you're gonna have all of those bridges there (I actually suggest taking one out), then there should be a road leading to it to show that they use them. In the places where there isn't a bridge you should try to add a reason for it being there and not somewhere else. 

 

Also you have to many villages in the top. I'd say the total number is too high for the map all on it's own, but if you have them all at the top then you really have to many villages in that map. My advice would be to leave 2 of the ones on the top but to put them in different places.

 

The first cliff tile (from the top) in the cliff segment to the right is in the wrong place, it should be one square to the right.

 

TECHNICALLY there is nothing wrong with your map (except for the cliff thing and the tile spam) but it's really boring and empty as a whole. Basically try to make it more interesing, add paths, add some more forests, light grass and stuff like that. Try reading Primes Mapping Tutorial, it's really helpful when you're just starting to map, and if you want to try making mountains check out my tutorial, they're both in the Spriters Resource thread on SF (I think the links for my tutorial in this thread got deleted).

 

EDIT: Hatless reminded me that I forgot to mention that the snags looks kinda funny XD. Maybe if you took out the splinters in the tile below?

BTW, I take map requests if anyone wants to make one XD, just send me a PM and I'll most likely accept. If you wanna see some of previous work you can visit my gallery here, I'd skip to the end because I've improved alot XD.

Considering that you just said you went through a lot of work (and given how annoying map tiles can be to find I don't blame you) I'll tell you this: IGNORE EVERYTHING SNOW JUST SAID.

 

Start off somewhere lower. For example, the map does seem awfully empty...is there a gameplay reason as to why it is specifically so large? If not, the best thing you could do is simply be smaller in scope, squishing what you have tried out together (although that snag being there weirds me out...) This will reduce the amount of empty space no matter what. Start trying to improve things little by little starting from there. And if you decide that you simply can't care enough to get it looking good? Don't even bother getting all fancy about it. It's not like you think you're the best thing ever and need everything as high quality as it can get. What you need is something functional for what it's for. Fuck the critics.


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

Alright, thank you for the advice on that, and I'll be sure to look at Prime's map tutorial

Honestly, I don't plan on adding it into a rom hack until I become way better at eventing, so I have plenty of time to adjust the size on the map, I was just giving a general idea of the peaceful village that Matt grew up in, which would show why he's so mad and depressed in my rom hack

For whatever reason, I decided to make a crossover hack to get some experience in making portraits, can you guess who every character is, and from what anime/game?

(I feel like this one is the shittiest, but I only had 16 colors to work with, dont judge me!)

Edit: Because the last one was so hard, here's another character from the same anime
