Mechanicly it'll function as a distorted mirror to the normal world, just like in alttp. I'm adding it 'cause I have plans to also add some dark world themed dungeons, as well as for story and puzzle potential down the line.

How will the dark world factor into all this?

Can't exactly remember. Not really a huge time sink. Easy to lay down the foundations of each area as I went along and add detail. Hardest part was trying to make the world cohesive and not splice together, much like the Link to the past map does. You can see some areas suffer as a result of trying to compress it to fit the 160x128 view size on the Gameboy and the 14x14 world size. Most notably Kakariko didn't really flow properly sectioning each individual building separately with hedges and made it hard to navigate the space; hence why I opted to make it open similar to the village in Link's Awakening.

No, this one will also be a placeholder till the final update once every single dungeon is done. Basically development made it far enough where the old quick fix overworld wasn't going to work for that much longer. There wasn't really any greater design behind it yet, in that one.

The new world keeps things like dungeon orders, roadblocks, (moderate) sequence breaking and other plans in mind. The tiling process might seem random but it's mainly a creative process to add cosmetics and theming to the functional plans.

Also I'll be working a light and dark version of this overworld at the same time. And I'm also connecting to every eventually planned eventual dungeons (a.k.a. "better to plan big now and cut stuff later on in development"). For the next update each new dungeon will just be 3 standard square rooms with some area enemies, a dungeon treasure and possibly the area gimmick. That way players can already try out the macro design of the overworld. And it allows me to also work on end and mid game area's / bosses / etc in the future.

All in all I consider this a milestone as I never figured I'd actually reach this point.

Is that going to be the final overworld in The Legend of Zelda: Horn of Balance?

Just a quicky update this week, as I've only been working on the tiling this weekend.
Check the attachment image for the current state.

Hi Everybody. Just uploading this for anyone interested. Just a past time I had started after learning Link's Awakening originally started development as a port of Link's awakening for the Gameboy.

My intentions was to fully flesh out the map using Game Maker as a tile editor while using the same map size of Oracle of Ages/Seasons, then to look into the possibility of editing a rom tile data of either of those games to play on an actual Gameboy. Have since lost interest in pursuing it further but would like to see someone utilise it in one of their own projects!

Back again.
Finished upgrading to the latest gamemaker version, tinkered around with optimization idea's and I'm now starting back up the overworld tiling. 'Cause this tiling often takes a lot of time I'll periodically share the overall progress (see attachment) for those of you that like seeing something gradually coming together. (As you can see I like to start design pretty abstract like the middle section before implementing it further like the top parts).
