Title: The 7th Saga (SNES)
Post by: KingKuros on April 20, 2006, 09:11:48 PM
Whenever you get the mapping forum up, you can move this there.



I'll just pick up where I last left off from the last board.  I am done with everything in the present world and now I got started on the world map of the past.  It will be a lot bigger than I thought it would be.  About as big as the present world.  Here are the progress lists.



To do/complete list:



World Map of the past

Town of Pharano

Town of Pasanda

Town of Ligena

Town of Melenam (past)

Town of Palsu

Town of Haven

Cave of Barrier

Castle of Gorfun (past)





Done and yet to submit:



World Map of the present

Town of Valenca

Cave of Kapel

Town of Bugask

Town of Guanta

Cave of Silence

Cave of Baron

Castle of Gorfun (present)



I'm holding off on sending these maps due to the backlogging and other stuff.  The lists will change as I progress so keep checking here.

Kuros! Glad to see more people getting back on here.

The world map of the past turns out to be just like the present world with the land where Melenam is just east of the Eygus island.  I removed the locations of the present world and added the locations of the past world and included the land of Melenam.  So Jon, can you handle two maps that are 10 MB and 17408 x 13376 in size?

Problem is, even if JonLeung can handle it, can the site surfers? I remember crashing my browser several times while trying to view the Earthbound Zero map (16000 x 15000 pixels). If he has the space for it, I'd suggest breaking them in quadrants for easier viewing.

Jon, did you have the last set of 7th Saga maps I sent in during your backlog?  I didn't see it put up by the time you said you caught up. I know I sent them.



This set contains maps of:



Castle of Baran

Castle of Bilthem

Kingdom of Bilthem

Town of Brush

Town of Tiffana

Castle of Tiffana





Now as far as my progress goes,  I'm done with everything up to Palsu.

I figured something was missed.



I put up every map that I did receive in my Hotmail.  Did you maybe send them to my GMail account, the one that I said I rarely use?  Or maybe it got lost somehow...you know how Hotmail tends to throw things in the Junk Mail folder.  Hopefully I haven't lost a lot of maps this way.



Try sending them again.

I am all done mapping this game.  All I have to do now is label and send them.  Jon, I always send maps to your hotmail account and I'll re-send what is needed after all the E3 stuff is over.  One last thing, should I send in the World Maps whole or split in 4 quadrants like TerraEsperZ suggested?  What do you think?

Go with quadrants. It would be way too big otherwise. Maps that big only open in Photoshop without crashing for me, and they can take about a minute to load. Maybe more.

Photoshop is what I had to use to assemble the maps that big.  I usually just use MSPaint.  I want to see what Jon has to say before I do anything.
Title: RE: The 7th Saga (SNES)
Post by: KingKuros on May 24, 2006, 10:07:15 PM
I sent in the 4 quadrants of the World Map of the Present.  I'll do the same thing for the Past map the next day.  I also re-sent the maps I tried to send in before.

I just sent in the 4 quadrants of the World Map of the Past.  Jon, I hope everything I sent you the last 2 days got to you alright.

Congrats, KingKuros!  The third-last map of yours I put up (I think it was the Kingdom of Bilthem) was the 4000th map put up!



Now I wonder if I'm missing some maps of yours.  With the exception of the eight HUGE overworld past/present quadrant maps, I've put up everything that I have received.  Please send anything that may be missing.

I'm really looking foward to seeing this overworld, if my computer doesn't crash from the huge filesize :)

The present-day overworld is up.  The past is still being PNGGauntleted.  Boy, it takes hours to do .PNGs this size.  But I think it cut one of them down from 5 MB to 4 MB...



I'd ask you guys to run PNGGauntlet on your maps but I'd probably end up doing it myself anyway.

Just looked at them and I'm really disappointed. I mean, KingKuros did a great job mapping them, but they just look incredibly average. A lot of them look like a waste of space, with huge mountain ranges and lots of empty space, and no cool-looking areas unlike other overworlds like Secret of Mana, the Dragon Warrior/Quest games and  the various Final Fantasy games.

I think the definition of wasted space actually goes to the EarthBound Zero maps, which were also so big that they had to be broken into quadrants.  The maps show large areas of just trees.  Trees everywhere!



(Though it doesn't take much to see that the maps aren't really designed like the Super NES RPGs are...instead of one big square (or rectangle), the EarthBound Zero world map is probably actually a bunch of smaller rectangular maps put together.  The trees are just filler.)

I agree. I wanted to see a great looking overworld for all the effort he put into them, but it's really boring too look at. :(



I hate not being able to quote bits and pieces of a message, or multiple posts. I still don't like these forums over the old ones.

Thanks!  This is the second time in a row that I did the honors to send in the x000th map (3000th being an Alien Syndrome map).  Jon, are you going to put up the map stats like you did when you got # 3000?  Such as largest and smallest maps, longest and shortest maps, etc.  This time updated for the 4000 maps.



Now on to The 7th Saga.  As for the locations, I got the present Barluca (the ice contenent) and everything in the past to label and send.  I knew the world maps would be too large for anyone to appreciate.  A lot of water, mountains, and long distances between locations.  Ticondera, huh?  If I knew you would use that name, I would've put "Ticondera - Present"/"Ticondera - Past" in the title block.  I did thought about it momentarily, though.  I'll try to get the rest done as soon as possible.  Once again, thanks.

I don't think the smallest and largest maps have changed.  Well, the smallest one got smaller when I ran it through PNGGauntlet...



If that "3000th map" topic got recovered with all the other old ones that did, maybe I'll make a VGMaps.com stats topic that can be edited as each milestone is reached or record broken or something.

I just sent in the locations on the Barluca Contenent in the present world.  That should be everything for the present world.  Barluca is the icy contenent at the northwest of Ticondera.
Title: RE: The 7th Saga (SNES)
Post by: KingKuros on June 07, 2006, 09:03:23 PM
I just sent in the locations of the Past world.  And that is all for The 7th Saga!  Once these maps are up, that will be everything.  Finally, all completed!

Now that all the maps for this game are up, I now have a guessing game for you.  Each map with a certain background color have something in common.   Can any of you figure out how I selected the BG colors for each of the maps?

Have you made the thumbnail for this game yet?  I haven't seen one so far.
Title: RE: The 7th Saga (SNES)
Post by: JonLeung on August 14, 2006, 08:42:31 PM
I know I promised you that I'd get around to it the next time I had some time to make thumbnails, but that time hasn't come around yet...  :(



Maybe I'll make some time to do so soon, as I've got a slight backlog of thumbnails that I've been meaning to make...



In the meantime, is there an area you'd suggest might be good for one?
