Is the movement of the cursor pixel or tile based? Overall, a very nice looking world map, and I like how you incorporated the RTP mountains into it.
Must be tile based I believe :P pixel movement would a very heavy hassle for nothing particularly useful :P

Yeah, it's tile based.
Mmh- I kinda have trouble reading this map... In maps like these is often common for the darker areas to be the sea and the lighter areas to be the land. It's a positive-negative space thing. It's easier to read and appreciate details against a lighter background; and the darker areas help to better frame what's important. But anyway, I don't know if you'll be able/willing to change it now that is finished so...

Also, I feel the location icons could look better if they were a little bigger. ^^
Location icons would look a bit better if they were a tad bit desaturated, to more match the map itself. Although it doesn't look bad the way they stand out. In fact, might be better that way, for practicality's sake.

I've tried darkening the water and brightening the land a little bit, but it looked pretty strange, to be honest. Also, the mountains didn't match the map anymore. :( As for the location icons, I can't really enlarge them or else they'd break out of the 32x32 event sheet.
(Well, there's manually repixeling each one, but...I don't have time for that. >_>)

@narcodis
I agree with the desaturation, but I think it might hinder readability for the player.

How about sepia tones? Happy sent me this edit:
Obviously, this blue part here is the land.
The sepia icons definitely look more cohesive.
Ya see, I like how the icons are blended in here. Doing the same concept with the dream world, maybe a purple shading over the icons, would look fantastic.

Did you make that script -if script it is- yourself?

The only script used is one that changes the player's walk sprite; I evented everything else.
