TheRock:

I try to separate the map from the area I played in Board Gmae. From playing the quest, I didn't care so much for the area, because of the raft wonkyness. However, looking at the map from a perspective of how it looks, and how it appears to be structured, I like it a lot. You really did nothing wrong in the actual map creation as far as I'm concerned. Very nicely done.

 

Shane:

I like the town. It looks like, a town, as it should. All the individual graphics are nice, and I respect the work that goes into making custom tiles. However, I think it's too gray. I would personally change either the road or wall colors.

 

PureZC (20+ contributors):
It's really cool that the community as a whole actually managed to finish this map. It's really nice, and has some highlights, like the bridge and the carnival that draw my interest. Lava doesn't belong by a snowy mountain *cough* *cough*. Excuse me princess. Most of it looks nice, though since there are multiple contributors you can see little variations in quality screens. Like the green area in the bottom left looks blegh to me. It is really amazing that with all the contributors it came out as such high quality though.

 

 

However, my vote goes to TheRock.

That looks like a lot more than one screen

The Tiger roared it better than I ever could. h

I love Shanecity. I agree though that there is too much gray. h

Some areas look too square, especially the top of the little bushes have that effect. Also, since they overlap each other, I can't help to think that they would look better if the last one would overlap a bit over the street like with trees. Not sure if this even would make sense though. h

My least favorite place is the little pond, because of said reasons. But still, that are some beautiful tiles and a very nice city, I like it a lot. h

The problem is that trees overlapping the road would be a bit jarring on walkability since the treetops are solid (like in the official Gameboy Zelda games). Also the pond is square mostly cause I intend on placing a statue in there, meaning the pond's artificial.

 

Anyways, regarding the grayness, I will definitely create a secondary gray-ish colour for the walls. Thanks for the feedback.
