Greetings fine people,

I'm currently thinking of a way to map multiple 'areas' of a 2dSS on a top-down overworld map in a way that you wouldn't need to transition onto an overworld and then walk to a different area of the map like a lot of the older RPGs.

So I'm thinking, what if I keep looping an area (horizontal loop) until the player chooses a different path via an in-game overlay / menu map?

To better understand, please take a look at this IMAGE


Do you think this is viable? Any other roadblocks you can think of regarding this?

Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you!

Hi and welcome to the site. You probably need to explain what you already tried and where you got stuck; general "hey can I get advice" questions are generally too broad or off-topic. –  ashes999 Jul 4 '13 at 19:32
