Sorry, my under-reading mistake. My earlier answer was not offensive towards you. I just wanted to make you aware that by doing some project that deviates from normal game standards, with version 8.6 and its sprites, you would have a hard time breaking through. I haven't read that it's not going to be a mainstream server, just for friends. Personally, when it comes to the map, and if you want to know something, add more details, for example, some small pebbles on the road. I understand you are modeling on a different game or project, but Tibia 8.6 has quite a few items that could be better used on the road or on nature.

Wouldnt it be easier to just enlarge Zelda assets to 32x32? I dont think that would be too much of a work and would allow you to even make your own 'new' locations.
If you would want to go that way I could probably help with some basic things like different color palletes for areas and things like that.

I dig this project a lot ^_-

I believe it would be way better to do this way. But since its a hobby project I think it would consume way too much time than OP would want.

The Zelda tiles are already that size, but the problem is the art is in a way different style and perspective, it wont match anything in Tibia. So I chose the tibia art which has way more pieces as not to bottleneck what I can design. Zelda only has a single type of grass for example. It's just supposed to be reminiscent of the Zelda map not a 100% copy. I am making new areas both within caves and reaching out from the edges.

Not to mention that Nintendo is far more litigious than cipsoft. Even though my server is for fun, it will be public, and Nintendo has sent cease and desists orders to fan projects before. I'd rather just stick to tibia art.

Going the PXGish path is a way to go.
If you want to create a tibia-like game, use the tibia tools and then substitute the sprites with Zelda-inspired ones.

I'm cheering for this project, keep it up!

Fun project and even funnier is that you're actually updating this thread continuously.
Keep it on, If this comes to life I will definitely give it a try.

Funny because most projects die out I hope lol. Either way, thanks for the appreciation. Your cabbage will be crisp and your cucumbers firm!

When playing the Zelda game and looking at the map, the world doesnt look big enough to fit the multiplayer aspect but the images of caves you showed us made me realize that doing this in Tibia the map size would be pretty good. Not to mention that there is a darker world to Zelda aswell. So w/e you are doing, you would need to do in two versions ^^

Its like the first map is level 1-50 and the dark version is 50+

fyi_ every time i enter this thread i get the background music of that Zelda game in my head for hours!

I'm going to do elements of the dark world, but most of it is identical to the light world in form. After link to the posts map is done I'm thinking of doing ocarina of time. Make it another island.

I can barely understand what you're trying to say? Are you saying I should update my protocol? Because 8.6 is old? I have to kindly disagree, some of the most popular servers are 8.6. Beyond that, I asked for feedback on the map design, not my versions sprites, and whether my server is a hobby or not is irrelevant. I dont understand why you think its your place to tell me how to treat my project, especially considering that for all you know my goal is a fun server for my friends (in fact thats the only assertion i've ever made about the nature of my project) and im not in this for money. Thank you for your feedback though. Even though I disagree.

First floor of the tavern/depot. Had to replace this building to make a functional spot. Theres a memorial plaque near the bar detailing the bars history and remodeling.
Okay firstly, wow this project is amazing. Like legit started crying when I saw it 😍..... A link to the past is and will always be one of my fav games, hmm prob one of the first games I even played. 😅

But I just have one question, what is this building? I cant recall a stone house with benches outside etc like this, could just be my memory being wack tho 🤗

Anyways, great project and I wish you the best of luck with it! 😍

Thanks for the feedback. I explained the building replacement in the post you quoted lol. The default bar in kakariko wouldnt serve well as a depot, so I changed it. There is a placard in the bar with the canon explaining the remodeling following the defeat of ganon. Im setting it some time in the future so some stuff is changed slightly.

Just want to let folks following this project know that i'm still working everyday on it. Had to take a break from straight mapping and handle some other tasks for my project so I didn't burn myself out. I should have some map updates soon.
