Can I get verified in the CSMC?
I believe Boosters Lab allows you to have more maps than 128, if I remember correctly.I believe the map limit for Cave Story is 128. Although if you can help it, I'd suggest replacing existing maps instead of adding new ones.
That's weird, the duplicate map feature in BL seems to work okay for me. Might be a problem with version 0.4.5.0, but obviously that can't be helped much in your case.
I'm not aware of any specific limit on the size of maps, but I do know that the game will let you make maps that are pretty darn big. Generally, one design practice we try to discourage is to make your maps too enormous. Even in the case of mods that did this gracefully, like Jenka's Nightmare and CS Redesign, it can make the mod hard to navigate. Also, not sure if this matters, but if your map exceeds certain dimensions (don't know the dimensions off the top of my head), then the map system won't work on that map.
307200 tiles is what I've heard. Theoretically this allows a perfectly square map no larger than 554x554, but any dimensions within this bound should work (albeit not be fun to traverse in). Also as Hayden said earlier the map system item will stop working correctly far below this threshold (unless you use the modloader .dll that dynamically resizes its rendering).Thirdly, what are the size limits for maps? (I think 21x16 is the minimum, but not sure on the maximum...)
