Re: First Rule Of Mapping (Read before mapping)
Why thank you. also I believe if you make a second rule or continue change this to Rules of mapping, and list them under spoliers.Also may I linky this under you know what
Rules Of MappingBefore you begin mapping please read these rules.Rule #1Spoiler for: Nature is random, so don't ever make it square.Avoid this.Don't do this.Or this.As you can see the maker of Legacy Of The Gatekeeper and I(not really) should be ashamed. Make a bad map and I will see it! Do you want everyone to see your ugly, square, not random maps?Instead be random and not square with nature, and be creative with the shape of buildings.Made by me.Made by Blizzard.Made by Nouman.Made by Nouman.Please view RMRK's fine mapping tutorials and don't ever make anything square.Rule #2Spoiler for: Don't leave your indoor maps empty.What we're trying to avoid is this...As you can see, that's a pretty ugly map. Do you know why? It's too open and boring. Try and make your maps fun and not so empty! like this...That's a pretty good map compared to most maps I see today. It's filled with all sorts of things like a real house. remember, don't overdue it.Rule #3Spoiler for: Draw out your dungeons and puzzles before you make them.Make an easy to understand layout with paths coordinated by colors. List important switches, chests, and stairs. Failing to do so can lead to easy, boring dungeons. Now you can map your dungeon!Rule #4Spoiler for: Watch your heights.If your going to make a bridge linking from one cliff to another, make sure the cliffs are the same height. Don't do this. As you can see the cliff to the right is higher than the one on the left.Instead make sure they are the same elevation!Rule #5Spoiler for: Make sure your layering is correct.Don't do something like this.As you can see a tree that should be behind the others is looking pretty messed up. Why? Because it's on the third layer instead of the second layer! Make sure the ones in front are on the 3rd layer, and the one in the back is on the 2nd layer. The lower the layer, the lower or further it will be.This is not complete, I will update the thread with new rules frequently.Once you've read these rules please visit this thread. It has an excelent amount of tutorial links for all sorts of things.
