game for an extended period of time. Mapping can be fun, if you decide to have fun with it. It is what you make it.

 

What is the role of a Mapper?

Together with Content Scripters, Artists, Developers, and Admins; Mappers represent that part of the staff called Content Staff, who have access and are in charge of the creation and editing of the content of the game.

In specific, a mapper is an individual who creates the maps for the game, which are commonly known to be used for story, events, etc. Some examples of map can be Pallet Town, Pinkan Island or Eumi Island.

Mappers create maps through the use of an editor and the use of tiles. The Mapper Team should always monitor the community's interests as well as the staff's channels in order to know what needs to be mapped, as well as the Mapping Bugs forum in the Bug Resolution in order to find and fix the mapping errors reported by the community.

You can present your work under the private forums. No one but you and staff will be able to see it. Please stick with the one thread only. If I see your map is going somewhere I might offer guidance in your thread. If I feel that your map can't be improved because it's fundamentally wrong then I will note it down too.
