Polished Map Build Status

A map and tileset editor for pokecrystal, pokegold, pokeyellow, pokered, and hacks including Polished Crystal v2, Red++ v3, Orange, Prism, and many more.

(For projects that use 256–512 tiles and per-block attributes, including Polished Crystal v3, Red++ v4, Coral, Black and White 3: Genesis, and Ancient Ruby, use Polished Map++!)

Inspired by crowdmap (now defunct), but implemented with C++ and FLTK, and with more functions for graphics editing.

Latest release: 4.7.0

Follow the steps in to install the release copy of Polished Map, or the longer instructions to build it yourself from source.

The example/ directory contains a minimal pokecrystal project with two test maps. Kanto.180x135.kanto.blk is a stitch of every Kanto overworld map (they all use the kanto tileset). Johto.235x135.johto.blk is a stitch of every Johto overworld map; Goldenrod and Azalea use the johto_modern tileset, so try switching tilesets with Edit→Change Tileset… or by pressing Ctrl+H.

Browse the menu items, toolbar buttons, and Help dialog to learn how to use Polished Map. And don't miss the mouse controls:
