Then would it be okay to use the graphics as long as I state where they came from?

So what should I do?

I went back to working on the maps, I'm up to Nibelheim. I started to learn how to set how passable a tile is and what graphic it uses, now I just need to figure out how to edit the colors it uses. I got rid of the wall in the middle of the town and that brick thing in the bottom right.


Chpexo

The colors are right after the map's data.

Okay, I'll start looking. I'm trying to make parts of the map that have similar looking graphics all share the same code, that way I'll have some extra tiles that I can use to maybe place that water tower thing that's in the center of the town. Or I could also change the look of the Shinra mansion. Right now I have 18 extra tiles.

Thanks again Chpexo for telling me where the color coding is located. I changed around part of Nebelheim, not all yet. Think it looks okay?


(Up by the Shinra mansion)

The buildings with gray doors don't go anywhere, they're just decorations.


Chpexo

It's pretty good.

Here's what you should change:

Make the roofs all orange and not partially gray.
Make the fence take up 32x32 blocks and make it gray.
Make the ground green or what it was in the original.

Here's a full picture of how Nibelheim looks now.

Half of the Train station is done.


Chpexo



You have the basic details down. So far, great job.

I would make the cobblestone at the bottom have the red palette. Also I would make the red palette darker. The steps could be wider and not as long. The raised platform could be lowered and the light poles and other miscellaneous objects should be added.

I was thinking this:


I also made the fence brown.

Also you added too many of those light poles (or whatever you call them)

All done

Thanks for the suggestions.  :)

Here's a full picture of the train station.


Chpexo

I would personally make the screen a square instead of a rectangle.

Lugia2009

The whole train station area is only 2 screens big.
I don't know how to add more screens.

Chpexo

No, I mean decrease the screen number.

Lugia2009

I would if I knew how. Could you tell me how to do it?

It's before the map data.

Okay, I'll mess around with it and see what I can do.

I didn't figure it out yet, though I did manage to get the game to teleport me back to the title screen when I enter the train station.

I worked on the town with Tifa's bar


Chpexo

It's good, the things you might want to change are:

Get rid of the green grass
The left border should be rock
Some object that repeat (like that sign on the raised platform is only at the entrance, or the stone column that shoots lights)
Get rid of those boulders

I would compare your pictures with the original FFVII layout to help you.

The pictures are below

Chpexo

Very nice.

I just don't like...
those barrels/cylinders; it makes me think I'm playing Pokemon. I would remove them or make them trash
There is black background behind the pillars
You know those green lights, I would make those pillars have green coming on the top (not the bottom) instead of white. Use an extra palette set if you have one.
