  • The most amazing thing about MZ so far is honestly that I can put a B tile one space above another B tile, and if it belongs underneath it (like a tree that would be blocked by another tree, or some other B tile), it CORRECTLY places it in front of it, without me having to re-map the tile below it. What is this sorcery?! I love it!

    Thank you! I didn't see a reply for a while and never got a notification so I actually did not notice - so thank you also for letting me know! Very kind of you, much appreciated.

    I don’t have a video, but what work should for me is one: Having an idea of what I want before hand. A vertical mountain town or a riverside village.

    Two: If my mind is completely blank I map out the road/path and take things from there.

    Indrah had some mapping tutorials at one point I think, not sure if they're still around though, might search for them. My recommendation though is to look through the screenshots thread, find some maps you like and work on recreating them. Not to use in your game, but just to practice getting a feel for things like spacing, item placement, right amount of clutter, building construction, etc.

    @mlogan has it right! I always tell people to play Enelysion to get a feel for map composition as I think the maps are really great without the use of parallax. There are so many games with great mapping though - and the screenshot thread is great for feedback etc. (sometimes the feedback given to other people will flick a switch for you)

One year and two days ago, I got RMMV. So far I have:

» Gotten Ideas™ from VXA’s music.
» Made a test project to teach myself the basics.
» Successfully done up a no-combat outline for Ideas™.
» Entered the Boss Battle Build Bout.
» Burned out for over seven months after trying the One Map Challenge.
» Found my groove again about a month ago.

And it feels good to be back on track again.
Let there be light!

Just a little mood-piece for the game I'm working on with @spillycat :)
