It's a really neat map. I love how you used Neti's snow ROM base, and then changed some of the tiles. The mapping is good, too.

EDIT: I now have a map to post:
Just a small map I wanted to see
if I was still good at mapping ruby:

Lightning, please edit your post so that it is in the form.

Also, as a heads up, I have rewritten the first post, so reread it, everybody.

if I was still good at mapping ruby:
well the water seems to straight for me and u kinda overused the grass tiles ionly the sandy path is walkable wihtout encountering an wild pokemon.
and the trees are kinda too straight too.
so overall i'll give u an 6/10

@sphrical ice: i would look again at the first post i think u did something wrong when writting with with those BB codes or maybe it was supossed to be.
i was just giving ur attention there not meant bad:)

Anbuja, it was written like that so you can easily copy and paste the form. If you want to know what the form looks like, here:
Map Name: Optional - the name of the map.
Base ROM: FireRed, Ruby, Diamond, etc.
Mapshot:
Spoiler:
[IMG]link[/IMG]

Comments: Optional - any comments you may have on the map.
Credits: List all the tile-creators, etc., that is evident in your map.

Anyway, Lightning, you map.

I'm not going to sugarcoat this - the map is bad. There is too much empty space the water, the shape is very bland, and their is very little playability as the grass never stops. The trees could do with a more curved shape, and the map is small in general. Decorations such as fences, signposts, flowers, rocks (both in the water and onland), other trees, bushes, deeper water, are all available to you, so don't conform to only the bare basic tiles. Try to enlarge the map's size and expand it to give you more room for detail.

Nice map. I like the river tiles and the usage of small trees. 9/10.

Well, I think you're overusing that small tree tile. It looks really unattactive and should be used sparingly in my opinion. The shape of the map is very nice, but I think you should break up some of the tall grass parts--leave some free space for the player.
