The tileset for #5 looks gorgeous :eyes:

oh another thing

i’m not planning on having winners pick contest themes anymore, and instead would prefer having community suggestions to choose from
this is to try and keep the contests from lagging behind, as well as letting different sorts of people give their own ideas for what to make next

if we’re talking about contests in general, they could be about anything, really.
we could even have contests sorted by rotation, each with their own theme.
for example: we could start with a round for portraits, followed by backgrounds, battle frames, animations( or eventually stills, why not ), maps, item icons, anything that comes to mind.

just my opinion though~

To anyone curious about my map, I wanted to use Gamma’s swamp tileset, but after looking, couldn’t find a released version, so I decided to quickly whip up my own… kinda. I started with western isles, re-colored the bits and pieces I used from black temple/desert tilesets plus the bubbles and matched them all to the water/cliffs palette. From there I went back to my mapping roots and put everything together in paint. The goal was to create something that should be totally re-creatable in Gamma’s actual tileset once released. Oh and I did use those cliff tiles from the first prompt so I could submit it on that merit alone, it wouldn’t be a submission of mine without doing something a little out there, I mean have you seen my stuff from the spriting comps?

Some suggestions for any possible future rounds:
A 15 tile wide map
A 10 tile tall map
A bustling canal
A familiar locale
A map with a boat
A castle with a moat
Riding across highlands
Storming around islands
Kinda quirky desert town
Ancient city underground
A generic seasonal theme
Great valley cutting stream
Discovering an ancient town
Just getting lost underground
An older FE map as a remake
A newer FE map as a demake
In the hall of the mountain king
In the court of the crimson king

These totally won’t work as themes for maps I still need to make for my hack

Hard mode:
Vanilla tileset only

:sob: My swamp tileset’s been ready for a while and I kept forgetting to release it…

Funny, we both ended up using the same base components, but I think the Black Temple bits on yours look nicer than on mine. I guess this is sign enough for me to stop procrastinating and get mine packaged up for release!

Was the layout of your map at all influenced by A Reason to Fight, Chapter 3-6 of Radiant Dawn?

I think the only differences are really just adding the water meta tiles into the reed tiles which of course is easy for anyone to do. Then the much more subtle adding water underneath the 2x1 root tiles, and the incredibly niche spooky eyes and skeletons in the corners. I forgot to use WAve’s cool dead trees though.

@ChivesKirk
Not at all
It was one of the prompt options
The tile for tile recreation looked pretty boring though, so I went a little overboard with it’s unique features to GBA-ize it into my style, as I tend to do.

that was literally one of the prompts lol

but maybe it would be good of me to copy the prompt for the voting round

Remake Chapter 23 from Conquest.

Also that’s the day Three Hopes comes out. No this is not relevant, just thought I’d share.

Perhaps you should make the next round Fodlan themed.
