How would you make a huge world like Pokemon?

I'm thinking maybe multiple layouts to split the game world up will be best.

Now my other roadblock I already know is having pixel buildings resembling Pokemon buildings, but I can not go and copy theirs, it is copyright infringement, where can I go to learn how to make 2d sprites like the buildings? Everywhere I look they are iso buildings, no tutorials for the 2d ones in Pokemon.

There are almost an infinite way to make buildings for your game, but the secret really is that there is no secret. You just gotta dive in and start creating in whichever program your most comfortable in. Alexixiv2013-04-03 03:02:28

I was using MS paint today, and I sure do need practice at making 2d sprite buildings.

All of the tutorials are all ISO style, well Pokemon is not ISO style... ehh

Frankly I find more tutorials on making 2d or 3d buildings when I want iso.

The RPG Maker communities have a lot of resources on how to make any pixel art that's like pokemon. Try searching "pixel art tutorials". Buildings should be easier than characters.

You also have a choice of 16x16 and 32x32 to narrow the search further. 32x32 is more popular, 16x16 is closer to classic pokemon.rosareven2013-04-03 04:36:27

Game Freak doesn't care if you use it's sprites. Just look at I Wanna Be The Guy and the amount of sprites from Nintendo games! And they said, we don't care.

Or just modify their sprites so I do not get into trouble with copyright?GameThirsty2013-04-03 15:58:09

Using Pokemon buildings is a bad choice from the start. But as someone said, you better learn. Unless you want to make a tribute to the old video games like IWBTG.

You may be right. What I thought of doing was using the Pokemon buildings as a template, making my own creations out of them and heavily modify them so they do not look like Pokemon buildings. It teaches me to learn the aspects of pixel art, and that's only one step of numerous I have to do. I still will have to make character sprites and others. But I think of it as a good start.
