Voted for nicklegends, I love the environment and what's going on.

 

NewJourneysFire's I don't even understand at all, where are we supposed to walk? Readability comes a long way, there's just too much going on!

 

Russ's is a bit bland in the center, and on the upper snow terrain. Footprints could work.

 

Demonlink's was close second for the amazing screen structure, but I'm not a fan of the detailing (or rather the lack of detail in between) or water (graphics themselves).

 

Benji's is alright, but the tower has some serious perspective/visual issues.

 

Hoff123's is somewhat true to the OoA visuals (again), but the screen design feels man made rather than natural with it having a mirrored design.

The center rock is like a pillar, you can walk behind it. (The bushes is a giveaway). At first look, one could assume that I carelessly layered rock tiles over bush tiles by mistake, but half of that center rock structure is overhead. Same goes for the trees in the foreground.

I voted for nickel legends. Good screen. NJF was a little too over the top this time. Just a tad. Good turn out! :)

I don't think I'm going to do well in exploring your Overworld. So confusing. Q_Q

 

I kinda knew the rock pillar was overhead, but I personally don't like resorting to fumbling around screens looking for pathways hidden under things - and this screen looks like it encourages it a lot. I just want to know where I'm going. But to each their own I guess...

No hidden pathways, but a few overhead stone formations.

Update: however, this screen actually is hidden due to the trees. But that doesn't meant the whole overworld will be a mess of hidden pathways. :P I could make the overworld a mess of hidden pathways if you want. ;p

voted for Hof123.

It's a simple, but very nice GB-screenshot ^^

 

@Russ: What script is that? Roc's cape? :)

It was hard between Demonlink, Hoff123 and nicklegends.

 

And then it was a choice between Hoff123 and nicklegends (Demonlink's shot was pretty good, but the floor felt kinda... empty with design. I dunno how to put it, but something felt missing)

 

I eventually chose nicklegends. Sure, Hoff123 had that awesome Oracle of Ages-style screen, but I felt that nicklegends just put a little more effort into the screen, and all in all, it looks beautiful.

It's a Deku Leaf that Moosh made for our random theme quest contest entry. The screenshot's from the same entry.

I was torn between NJF and Nicklegends, but I think I'm throwing in my vote for the latter, for making a really good screen of the kind I haven't seen before without flashy custom tiles.

without flashy custom tiles.

While I have also voted for nicklegend's screen (though I really wish he would have used "borders" on these dirt roads) I don't see what kind of criteria "without flashy custom tiles" meets. I really don't understand those of you PZCers that dislike any custom content. That regressive attitude is just not making a lot of sense to me - if it was to be taken serious we would still be using the original classic tiles and nothing else. And yet here you are, making it sound as though creating custom content (most notably in the graphical department) is somehow bad or "cheap". It's not just on this one occasion, I've seen people getting that a lot here before (I've actually been on the receiving side more than once as well). Explain yourself, please.

I can't speak for Russ, but I took his comment to mean that my screen felt fresh despite not utilizing custom tiles, which means that custom tiles tend to be a plus instead of a negative. You and he agree on that point so far as I can tell, Sheik.

Either way, thanks for your votes. You're right to say that grass–dirt borders would help a lot.
