Unova Map Tutorial by The-Godlings-Rapture Unova Map Tutorial by The-Godlings-Rapture
How I make Unova maps. I tried to explain it as best as I can, but I think you'll be better off just looking at each step/example. alskdjflkasj I'm tired so I'll add a better description laterrr. Also ignore any spelling mistakes.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. I've been trying to learn how to make maps of "imaginary" places and found it really hard. Believe it or not, this tutorial also sort of work for Photoshop. Thank you!!!

You didn't actually mention about the desert! It just appears between the plateau and cliff instructions. Not a problem, though, I just improvised.

If you're interested to see, it's here: [link]

Thanks again for this tutorial. :3

I forgot to mention it, but deserts are done the same way as forests: you copy/paste a section from the Unova map, and place your map over it (I included a square of desert in my Unova map kit for this.)

But nice map! And you're welcome~

Yes, I only actually clicked on the kit after I'd made this post. xD I'd been using things directly from the tutorial. But, yes, it's clear now. Thanks!

And thanks again! :3

out of curiosity, how long would a single map take on average?

The-Godlings-Rapture Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It depends on how complex you make your map. Simple ones take about 2 - 3 hours from what I've seen. I've made one that took about 5 hours, and the one in this tutorial took about 7ish hours (but that was because I was messing up on the layout of things and had to redo the mistakes)

This is great. This tutorial is so in depth! The actual map-creating process is still a bit too advanced me but I'm sure I'd be able to make something decent if I took the time to do this.

that's pretty much what I do, though I wasn't sure how the oceans were done so I'll have to fix mine as they are very much aliased, I do my routes slightly differently though, I make a grid separately and put my towns (working out through the map) and I make diagonal routes in such a way, they only go 45 degrees, though the unova map doesn't do this it makes it easier to make in game maps (because I'd end up having to make several maps for a very small section), I also shadow mine differently to the unova map

also you forgot about bridges, they're fairly easy, (I've got a bridge going vertical on my map as well so I had to make a custom one)

but this is a great tutorial as always

The map I was making doesn't have a bridge that I know of, so I didn't get the chance to show how to do them. Although in the kit I made I included a bridge from Unova's map, so if they need one they can either use that one or edit a normal route to look like a bridge (seeing it's just moving a section of pixels up). If a lot of people ask me how to make it I'll edit the tutorial :s

once I finished making the oceans look nicer I'll upload my map and see what you think. I have done some things a little differently, I used my own interpretation of the Unova style because I made it before the tutorial but I am using your tutorial to help me make my ocean look more realistic.
