    Why do RM buildings/structures have no inside doors?

    As I was map building, I noticed that there seem to be little to no inside doors for buildings or structures. For example, virtually all the built-in maps of building-insides have no doors, even where such doors would be logical to have (bathrooms, bedrooms, offices, closet/storage rooms...
  3. How do I enable autotiling?

    I know this is a dumb question but I searched for a good 30min for an answer to this. How do I tell rpgmakermv that a set of tiles is made for autotiling?

    How do you go about making huge maps

    When designing open areas in my games, I tend to make them a series of interconnected maps (Think like the Original Zelda) However, I’ve been far more ambitious in my new title and designing open areas my old way isn’t giving me the scope I’m looking for. I’m currently working on a 100x100 map...

    Priorities when starting a project. (poll)

    Over time and after abandoning several projects I was doubtful about which are the priorities that users take into account when starting a new project. When I talk about priorities, I refer to the importance that they give to each of the development phases that an RMK project has, such as the...
  7. Mapping question

    So I've created this character file and he works perfectly on the map except that he seems to float 4 - 6 pixels above the base line for all the other things on my map. Is this because I've adjusted the screen to wide screen resolution (1280x720) or is it something I've done wrong in creating...

    Mapping Tips

    I asked some people about tips for making better maps. I also wrote some as well. Here you go! They are grouped by contributor. By Ocean’s Dream: -When mapping, keep the exits of the area clear. You want the players to know where they can leave the map instead of having it hidden by excessive...

    Request for layer ordering plugin

    I would love to have a plugin that allows one to change the render order of layers in a given scene (map layers, parallax, battleback, GUI, etc.). Potential benefits include being able to put parallax maps in between the map layers (thus not affecting, say, trees), having GUI be obscured by...

    Not Tiled Mapping

    what is the easiest way to make maps and insert them into the game that aren’t made out of tiles. I want to make the whole entire map in my pixel art software, and then insert it into the game. Is there any way to do that?

    Map Layout Advice & Opinions

    This will be a rather lengthy explanation so bear with me! I've run into a little bit of a problem with the mapping style I've chosen, and I rather not change the style because I've put a lot of time and effort into it (and I think it looks good). The problem is that it's difficult to map rooms...

    Mapping Advice

    In trying to figure out how to proceed through my project, I was wondering how I could go about a portion that takes you though a mountainous region. Not necessarily under a mountain range (an earlier portion already does that), I want to do something that's above ground. Any ideas?

    Thoughts on how to make a "Colony 6" in RPG Maker?

    This idea sort of came to me when I was thinking of story elements I wanted to add to my game; how would one go about making a ruined civilization (a large map, in technical terms) that you can upgrade and add features to? For the uninformed, Colony 6 is an area in the game Xenoblade...
  16. How do I make my maps look similar to Avernum?

    It seems like the basic RPG Maker VX Ace program supports basic horizontal/vertical maps, and I'm unsure on what's the word to describe the map I want. The most I want my map to look like is to be similar to Avernum. ..Slightly.. tilted...

    Multiple Scrolling Backgrounds below Tile Layers

    I would like to have underneath the main tile layer 2 scrolling backgrounds. Basically, Tile Layer - World Map (Continents and such, like floating islands in the sky) Background Layer 1 - Scrolling Cloud Layer (Clouds just beneath floating islands) Background Layer 2 - Scrolling (only when...

    [Close] Lady Leknaat's mapping workshop

    I wish to offer my services in parallax mapping. Strength and weakness: I can edit tileset, add effect on your map. I work much faster on interior than exterior. I'm not good with sci-fi/futuristic & horror. Request template: Project Name : Map type : Interior / Exterior ( city / desert...

    Showing perspective on maps

    Had a lot of trouble deciding where to post this, so if I'm in the wrong spot, apologies! While this has direct implications for my game, it is more of a broad question. To those with The Mapping (Or other Artistic) Skills... How would you show perspective on a map with very tall buildings...

    Cold Desert

    No, not ice cream, that's a cold dessert (sorry, I couldn't resist). I am unsure of how to go about mapping a this area. I know its going to be pretty barren, but I'd like to have some little bits here and there. Mainly so that I'm not just wandering around a big empty space. I have a few icy...

Do you have an audio you want me to animate? If so send me the youtube link and I’ll animate it.
Okay, so I'm working on Draft 2 of my game's script.
Will try to keep you guys posted, if you're interested!

This is vid of my new game, Crystalgazers. A demo is available on my Gamejolt

I just thought of the best achievement for my game: "'I Didn't Know You Were a Developer!' Find and enter one or more dev room(s)."
I made this animation to apply to a job, what do you think?
