I really, really like my new meds. It's amazing how solving a small underlying problem can help so many others that didn't seem related. May 23, 2019

      I could make an entire tileset of just vines so easily. There are just too many potentially useful options.

        Hmm. Maybe after I get this base set finished then, and add a few other jungle type things to round it out a bit.

        Just do a full tileset but make everything out of vines. Houses, windows, wells, paths, water. Hell, even make some vine people. Go the whole extra mile. Someone might use it well.

      Just got a new case for my tiny pc. Could someone convince me that not to spend $40 on a foldable full size keyboard to go with it?

        Well sorry, but if you can afford a 719,623 dollar tiny computer, I would say quit hemming and hawing over $40 anyway! :p ;)

        Helping others is a great thing to do, specially when we are talking about not very known diseases. If it can help improve others lives, even if it is just by creating better ways for the patients being diagnosed, it's a good thing. But if you don't feel comfortable in participating, don't do it, really.

        You are the one that knows what's best for you, and whatever is your decision, make sure you will not regret it. You have our opinion, but what's the opinion of those closest to you?(if I may ask, if I don't, take those into consider more, because those are the ones who can support you the most)

      Could someone help me find a 2k/3 game with default tiles and good maps where I can access the project files? Doesn't have to be finished.

        I'm asking because have a tileset I'm wanting to test out with things mapped to a similar spot as the defaults. I have no intention of doing anything else with the project files so a game someone would otherwise want kept private would be fine too.

        Epic Elf has pretty charmy maps imo, its one of my favorite RM games ever
        https://rpgmaker.net/games/3766/images/

        otherwise, lots of stuff by liberty and just filtering for rm2k3 games with downloads should net you a fine list you can use to search, especially since project encryption isn't common with 2k3 games.

        (o_o') I, once, mapped one of the Dragon Quests with the Samurai tiles just for the heck of it... (._.') Yeah....So, if you ever figured out if it was an accomplishment or a complete waste of time, please let me know. I haven't figured that out myself.

      Would you mind if a tileset pack had some overlap of the same tiles with another pack? It wouldn't be much overlap, but it'd be necessary.

    I got my start doing commissions for indie gaming projects and eventually found my way here. While I no longer do commissions, I really love to make pixel art and love seeing my artwork move and be interacted with. I'm currently busy making the Pixel Myth packs and loving every minute of it. I'd like to someday make a game that incorporates elements of RPG, VN and Point and Click Adventure games in a way that it's none of those genres but something different. I also enjoy writing and crafting (usually crochet).
