Tip: When making your overworld, mix the terrain up! Add decorations to the overworld. Don't leave large empty grass or sea regions. As an example, angled land and multiple colors look much more interesting than square land and flat, plain colors.

News: Project feature
Introducing the monthly project feature! From now on, we're going to showcase some projects here, usually ones which have been getting surprisingly low attention but are very promising. A note that those aren't restricted to SMW hacks - if there are any interesting projects from the other sections, they can also be selected.
To start, we have Munchy's Big Day by Dr. Tapeworm for the first project feature! The hack has shown not only some great design so far, but also creative and pleasing aesthetics and a nice story to boot. Check it out! A one-world demo of the hack was also released during the Winter 2014 C3, as well as some extra screenshots, but it has been noted that it might be outdated by this point.
Other than the news post, the featured project thread will be sticked until the next news post is made. Great work, Dr. Tapeworm!
Not sure why we didn't think of this before. This is actually a great way to get projects out there and build up interest. It may also, hopefully, motivate hackers to actually commit to their projects as well.
