A few days left until the Designer event result is revealed, suddenly got an extreme amount of inspiration for one of my previous works, the Monster Book update!
Monster Book now returs with a new visual and many more features, named Maple Database, it doesn't only contain information about monsters, but does about maps, items, etc.
It was one of the best features ever added to the game, and i really liked it. Instead of hunting magic cards to fill the book, every monster will drop a microchip with some information about it, the rest should work exactly like the old one, but with an improved layout.
Pink Bean Microchip example:
The book now shows for each monster, it's elemental weakness, analysis (HP, MP, EXP, PdRate), map images for the places you can find it, it's drops, story, and many other options.
I'll translate the tabs, buttons, later when i have more time. Took me approximately three hours for this. Couldn't resist to work a little on what i've always loved to. :>
P.S: Had to make the Story with the example of JMS one, since i had no pictures for reference on the english one. :S
Singapore & MY world map:
I'm almost getting to the point where i can finally implement those into the game itself. I'm planning to make a video of the areas being truly explored, and since i'm now working on those for not just images, but already adding them onto object files in Map file, i'm gonna start off not another new project, but redo and make my first one better.
The Time Temple expansion.
Like you can compare in the first post, it's entirely made of three areas. And each one has their theme.
The first area, The Floating Gardens.
Sustains a montainous island, but filled with a happiness feeling coming out from plants, who are everywhere. This is the first area you see when visiting the island. And as an important mark, it has the main town of the island. Since time doesn't flow there, the change in the sky doesn't properly need to make sense.
It has an intermediary size, about 8 to 10 maps.
The second one. The eternal sunset.
Here, the happiness look goes away, and only the anger from the monsters in there can be felt. This area is much more dangerous than the first one, featuring burning forests, and burnt up plants.
The third one. The darkest nightmare.
Much more sinister themed, it's the largest area. You can barely see anything in there except the moon and sillouettes, because it's the darkest area. Black Mage's energy is felt everywhere. And his minions were hiding in there for hundred years.
His castle is situated in there, as well as the prisons, where kidnapped citizens have been put into, when they offered danger to the Black Mage's kingdom.
The chamber of Time is also there, where the Master Seal Stone is guarded, only with it, you'll be able to infiltrate through the magic barrier, and get into the castle of your true enemy.
The castle is very tall, and the last room is even in the outer space, where the final fight will be.
A new island on there, already was thinking of it's layout during a class, took me like 7 hours to make it.
Sorry for the water quality, the Stamp tool does that and it's kinda hard to fix. Criticism is welcome :)
"In game" preview:
Edit: Previous works:
Time Temple Expansion - Arcadia, Doomsday, and the Black Curse.
Arcadia, a peaceful island who used to float in the sky had a lot of secrets. Rhinne, Time Goddess, was born there. And citizens built her a Temple in Arcadia's Floating Garden, where our story begins.
Rhinne used to live in her Sanctuary, until the day refered as The Doomsday. Black Mage invaded the Temple to seek for the Ring of Prophecy, when this ring gets in contact with the Sacred Stone of Arcadia's Temple, the truth may be revealed and the unbeliavable power of Time will be given. Before she disapeared, she could hide the ring under the Mother Kamuna tree, situated in the Floating Gardens.
The Temple Keeper wants you to investigate Pink Bean's story, and asks you to go to the Secret Library in the Temple, after doing some research, you find out that Pink Bean suddenly appeared out in the Temple, and no one heard of him except from the Time Goddess. After going into the secret part of the Temple, the truth is revealed, Time Temple is not the Sanctuary of the Time Goddess. The true one, is situated in Arcadia, which can't be found.
You encounter a giant Time Whale in the skies of the Temple, she promises you the trip to Arcadia Gardens, after arriving there, you can finally discover what the Temple hides.
The original Temple was destroyed in the Doomsday, it turned into pieces and rests deep in the ocean, Arcadia still hides a secret.
They rebuilt the Temple itself, except for one part, the Twilight of Gods, where the Curse took place. And no one dares to step a foot there. An entirely new story is revealed upon that. Arcadia citizens teach you how to travel through Time. And you're able to watch the destruction of the Temple.
After some more story, you may find out where the True Temple has sunk, in the deep abyss. The prophecy rests deep in the ocean. It says that you'll be able to get into the headquarters of the Black Mage, with three objects. A Rubian key, lost in the middle ages of Victoria Island. The prophecy ring, and a weapon with the light of the Arcadia's red moon, that is able to pierce and break the Time and Space.
After getting awaking the powers of a True Timeless weapon, the dimensional hole takes you to the headquarters,where many prisons can be seen and only the Darkness can be felt.
Many things are hidden inside the Black Mage's castle, but it seems that he was aware of your visit, and that it wasn't the proper time for the Last Battle. You must battle and discover the secrets of the Black Mage organization. Many corpses are laying in those prisons, and completely heartless creatures live in such area. This area features many bosses to get through before discovering the treasure and deciphering the prophecy.
Rhinne, disapeared mysteriously in that day, is stuck in an alternate dimension. Pink Bean, who has the powers of reviving a dead god, was able to bring up the four sorcerers of Arcadia, that were sealed as statues in that room. A whole new world has appeared, and you must decipher the Prophecy, before the Black Mage does, and retrieve peace to a desolated land.
Previous Work II: Sharenian - Cursed Dynasty.
Remember that Arcadia required a Key made out of Rubian, lost in the Middle Ages? Here's where the story begins. Once you get onto Time Temple's Oracle room, you can visit other areas in their past.
Sharen III, apparently had everything. But he wasn't satisfied, after reading something in his library about a stone that could bring immortality, that was hidden somewhere in Perion, he made his guards seek for such stone and kill anyone who get's in the way. After months, he found nothing about that. His wife, Lillian, asked him to go with her at the Maple Hill, an area, that mysteriously disapeared after the curse took place. He refused to go, and continued searching for the stone.
Lillian, seeing that her husband was obcecated for that stone, decided to run away and hide inside the forest of maple trees. Ironically, she found a tree that had a dark aspect. That tree had the cursed stone inside it, and couldn't be touched by anyone other than the true pure hearted person. She was able to retrieve the stone to Sharen III, . But Ergoth, the spirit of the Rubian Stone, cursed the kingdom.
Sharen got crazy with the power of the Rubian Stone, that forgot about the curse. He didn't deserve the immortality, not even his fortune, and was going to lose all his precious belongings, the same way he made Ergoth lose his only treasure.
One day, his wife was possessed by Ergoth, and left Sharen with only two options. Be killed and rest without his treasure, or kill his only love to protect his treasure. With tears in his eyes, he pierced her body with his sword. Her tombstone is situated where the dark tree is.
Ergoth was ruling the kingdom by that time, and as a punishment for Sharen, he took his clothes off, and locked him inside the waterway, making him starve until death. Your job there is to search for the Stone, because the one keepen by Ergoth is only a piece of the original one, hidden inside the tree.
Previous work III - Mu Lung - Mu Lung Tower's Construction Site and Secret Organization.
Didn't write so much story about it.
I'll write the story later. But it's just a series of quests with a medal as prize.
Previous Work IV - Ariant Expansion:
Pyramid is not only a PQ, but a dungeon itself.
Previous Work VI - Neo tokyo's robot secret factory.
Edit:"Once 10.000 years, the Darkstar Comet crosses the sky and passes by this Temple. It always do the same route and get's past the Twilight of Gods. Once it approaches, it's blue light covers absolutely everything, and it's our only chance to return our missing Goddess.
We believe that our goddess is trapped inside the alternate dimension, that can only be acessed through the mirror situated in the Throne room.
Exactly ten thousand years ago, an event called the Doomsday occured. Black Mage destroyed this Temple, and trapped Rhinne inside her own creation, the Dimensional Gate.
The gate only opens when all five gods combine their powers with the Darkstar. Munin, Figin, Ariel, Solomon and Rex have been trapped inside that room, and were being controled by Pink Bean, who suddenly disapeared today. When the blue light touches all five Sealed Stones, between Ariel's hands, a black hole will be formed, leading you to the alternate dimension.
I can't explain everything now, we don't have time.
Follow the blue light on the sky, the comet is approaching the Twilight of Gods,you only have a few hours to rescue Rhinne, or else, we won't stay alive when that comet comes back. Be sure that she isn't alone there, The Black Mage has been guarding her body and all the exits inside the gate.
Now go! You're our last chance, prepare yourself for the Final Battle, Pink Bean is now the Black Mage's most powerful weapon and he's surely going to use it!
Please save our world, you're our only hope." Says the Temple Keeper.
Took me like 2 hours to make it.
And the Time Goddess shows up.
Currently working on Pink Bean v2, for the fight inside the mirror and on the alternate dimension.
Also managed to make an alive version of her, when you find her trapped, during the sacrifice ritual.
After an hour, finished the layout of the Final Battle of Pink Bean. Although i might change the objects / graphics, the map layout is like that.
If anyone is wondering, the thing in his head is the Black Magician's mark, it's found in their subordinates.

After someone saying something about Atlantis, it gave me a pomegranateload of inspiration, more information and real testing images coming soon, once i get to fix the testing issues, source or some pomegranate. >.>
And monsters, when i finish drawing and calculating the stats of those. This'll be my project for the rest of this year. Hoping to continue and finish this until December, if school allows me to with all those exams.
I'll post the rest once i'm done with it, and when i'm done with developing images for each thing. I've found it easier to list things that need to be made before making themselves just when i think of them.
Nothing to do, vacations ofc.
More things coming later, i typed in korean text to test out the fonts, and accidentally found one EXACTLY alike KMS ones.
The texts are just derpy versions of english ones translated through a translator.
Another part of the Ancient Island, not added on the current world map tho. In the north side of that island, rests a secret deep in a forest.
Your steps are way more closer to Black Mage's. And after hearing about the forest being burnt up, you may investigate what's going on.
Black Mage's subordinates decided to burn the forest, to try erasing something they don't want you to find out. Elenore, one of Black Mage's army leaders, is the one responsible for such incident. And she already prepared a trap inside the forest.
Your job there is to find out what they desesperately needed to get rid of. This forest has so much things inside it, that not even the Black Mage could understand. This area features a nightmarish themed sky, and the only creatures found there are special kinds of Dragons, that were a secret, exactly like the whole island.
After taking a look on visitor event, it's a shame that they haven't used anything of the town they made. Decided to attempt making that thing as an area itself, like i was doing with the Ariant Pyramid.
More things coming when i have time to do those, school's being peachy and the grand exam is approaching. Also need to work on such things as name, story and some pomegranates for that area before implementing it completely.
But these images that have been posted before aren't just images as i also have every single file saved for further uses in real files.
Again, i'll try to draw some monsters or some pomegranate to that other than the aliens, whose in my opinion don't really look like monsters, more likely players.
I'll try to make some other monsters that may look alike those, but those take a lot of time precisely. Specially when you try to make those plus their respective frames
