(This is pretty overdue)

Because I am a copycat, I have decided to release some free-to-use maps for those of us that want to hack, but can't make super pretty maps and don't feel like learning to.

All of the maps included should be available for both Mappy users and Tiled users. They are more or less identical, so feel free to use the one that you are more comfortable with, which is more than likely going to be Tiled the dastard *Shot*.

Oh, and if you like one of the FE8 tileset maps, but want to use it in your FE7 hack, or maybe even vice versa, then I would recommend giving this topic a visit.

v2.1

Some of the 27 maps included:

Happy hacking for maybe two and a half people!

Ah yes, this is the main reason why I hate Tiled
You'll need to make sure the map you're trying to use is in five folders and to have the tiled tilesets in two folders (i.e. Tilesets -> FE7) to get the file directory thing (right term?) working properly

Example:

If this doesn't fix it, let me know

For future releases, I might just have the pack on my desktop and make the maps work from there, so they would only need to be in three folders (good for paths like hacking -> project -> maps or project -> chapters -> chapter

Unless anyone has an actual solution for this XD

I use Tiled, and I'm able to insert my maps without having 4 folders... weird...

wait, you need your hack in there somewhere... or else it won't work because the computer won't look outside of those folders...

You don't need the hack itself in the folders.
If you open the map up in Notepad/Notepad++/whatever, you should find a line similar to
"<image source="../../../../../../Tilesets/FE8/1800481A.png" width="512" height="512"/>"
The double periods (probably not the correct term, but oh well!) stand for each folder the map is in (user and desktop don't count), while the actual folder names are the path to the Tiled tileset.
So, for example, this map is in six folders, and the tileset, 1800481A.png, is in Tilesets -> FE8.
However, you might not want the map to be in six folders, and instead just have it in three or something. In that case, you
would remove three sets of "../".
If you don't have the Tiled Tilesets folder on your desktop, then just change that to the file path that fits however you have it (or just put a copy of it on your desktop).
(Thanks to Jubby for posting how to fix this!)

EDIT: The next version is coming kind of soonish!
I'll probably make at least two more maps (A boat map and a castle map) before I upload, but until then, have a look at the maps introduced in the next release:

Now is an especially great time to say any recommendations or requests for terrains I haven't covered yet, whether it's Overworld or a game specific tileset. Feedback on how the maps are in practice would also be appreciated (e.g. map x is too crowded).

Version 2 has been released!

This release has an additional 18 maps, tripling the total amount to 27.

Thank you everyone for the motivation, whether you posted or downloaded the first version!

I'll update the OP with the new link and some screenies of the maps included in a bit.

EDIT: Minor task accomplished~
Or something

Uh
while I'm here, I guess I'll update this topic =o

v2.1

All of the maps (in both Tiled and Mappy) now have tile changes. Also has two new maps:

Also, there are a bunch of other open source maps I released for a different thing (Not included in the main map pack, but they probably will be eventually). They are currently only available for Tiled users.

Download - 13 maps
Download - 11 maps

If you want to be the most up-to-date on maps I upload, then you'll want to look at this topic on other forums every now and then (I don't plan on doing v3.0 for a while, so don't worry for now I guess).
