Harvest Moon: Magical Melody map v2.1 by Flanqer
Harvest Moon: Magical Melody map v2.1
This is a map of Flower Bud Village for the game "Harvest Moon: Magical Melody". I got tired of trying to find my way around using the blurry perspective map in the game and booklet, so I used Dolphin's "free look" mode to get a bird's-eye view and made a real map. I marked the locations of all the stores and added the hours that they're open. I didn't include Sunny Lake and Starry Hill since those areas are small and simple enough that a map isn't needed to find your way around.

I discovered that the first version had the wrong aspect ratio, thanks to Dolphin stretching the game's graphics from 4:3 to 16:9. After I fixed the aspect ratio, I overlaid a grid and went over every inch of it in the game, correcting any minor mistakes I found.

I added more landmark names and addresses from the in-game map's mouse-over text, and a checkerboard pattern on the properties that you can buy or are vacant at the start of the game. You can use this to plan the layout of your crops and buildings. You may notice that the addresses use district names instead of street names; for example, River Song Heights includes the land on both sides of the river from the lower waterfall to the Duck Bridge.

At the start of the game 3 properties are available for purchase, and 17 more become available as Mayor Theodore's friendship increases to 1, 2, and 3 hearts. I've marked the boundaries of all 20, and indicated when they become available for purchase. (Some of them may have an additional requirement before they're unlocked, as monkeymystical's "Unlockables Guide" on GameFAQs only lists 15 of the 20 properties. I'm not going to spend any time testing it more thoroughly.)

Pale blue = properties you can buy at the start of the game.
Green = public land. Most of these become available for purchase later, but you can plant crops and cut trees in these areas at any time.
Pale yellow = occupied at the start of the game.
Bright yellow and orange = vacant at the start of the game. You can cut trees and plant crops here while the land is vacant, but you'll lose the crops when new people move into town and open businesses in those locations.

Those two paths on the right appear to be permanently closed.

Saw your maps and I was wondering. Do you have any idea where to find a Crucian Carp? I've looked all kinds of guides and none of them have that info.

I was trying to keep track of where I caught each type of fish for a while. I didn't keep at it long enough to write a complete fishing FAQ (fishing is soooo slow and boring), but I can at least list some of the places where each fish can be found.

You can catch Crucian Carp...

* On Fenith Island in the ponds by the Bathhouse, Blacksmith Shop, and Church Plaza, and in the waterfall pool at Fenith Port.
* In the streams on Spring Island and Verde Island.
* In the pond in the middle of Desert Island.
