Pokedex Map
« on: June 24, 2010, 04:14:43 pm »


The challenge is to get a decent looking version of that map onto the calculator screen. Or come up with a nice way to present a full sized version of it. Any takers?

It needs to fit in the screen, right?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Maybe one pixel gray line for roads, 2x2 for cities? 1 pxl black line for outlines?

i just tried a quick scaling in gimp and it got pretty much destroyed.. the location tiles were 5x5 pixel squares.

I could do scrolling, and just treat it as another tilemap, but I would really rather not. I would much perfer to be able to see the map as a whole, as it is suppose to be an overview. That way if you view something like the locations of all Pidgey dens you see all of them in one shot.

As for getting it smashed, I don't think so. You can almost treat it as a 16x16 tilemap that needs to be smushed to 8x8. The tiles shouldnt be too hard to port

Ah, what the hell, I'll give it a shot. It just has to fit on the screen right? Or do you want it to take up the entire screen?

EDIT: It actually turned out pretty good.

Are you going to put anything in that empty space to the right? If not I can probably fill it up with some random pokemon related things like the Gameboy Tower in Pokemon Stadium.
I do sprites and stuff, so yeah.

Go ahead an fill it with random stuff. Unless you can think of some useful info to put there. You also might want to center the map and use the 8 pixels on either side

Yeah, I was thinking of doing that. I'll try to think of something worth putting there, but will most likely just end up as random stuff.

I haven't done pokemon sprites in a while, this is going to be interesting ...

EDIT:Okay, I did something simple, yet distinctive.
