My two favorite free tilesets for Ace:
Mack's are designed for VX which for some weird reason only allowed one tileset, so it is very packed but limited by necessity. However it still works quite well in Ace. They have a darker, more serious look and feel than Ace's RTP.

I love the art style on Celianna's but they have virtually nothing in the way of dungeons (especially caves). The trees there are great (anyone else here tired of trees two tiles high?)

I've moved this thread to Resource Requests. Thank you.


Is there anything in particular you're looking for?

There's plenty of great assets! Too many to list them all.
(Though @GrandmaDeb and Emmych valiantly tried, see here: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/vx-ace-resource-showcase-directory.19312/
or https://grandmadebslittlebits.wordpress.com/category/rpg-vxace-resources/ )

Some stuff can only be found in other communities, such as https://www.rpgmakercentral.com/forum/198-vx-ace/
to pick just one that I personally drew from.

The older resource restaffs, on this site and others, had a lot of goodies too. (I believe mostly up to the year 2015)


The trick REALLY comes when looking for particulars. (Hence Slimmmeiske2's question)


I'd like to say a few ?corrections? for what others have said.

Mack (now known as RefMap) has a new site up with all his old tiles, as well as a few newer ones here: http://refmap-l.blog.jp/ (just might need to use google translate)

And, Celianna does have some nice free dungeon assets!
(though you're mostly correct, i.e. no caves :p)
You'll just need to put in some work to make it truly compatible with VX ace (since they're parallax)

Right now, I need Sci-Fi tilesets for a project.
This is certainly one of the more difficult things to obtain, but thankfully we have a lot of people who have helped make this easier.
[The list below is by no means everything, you might have to do your own sleuthing about for finding more, but hopefully it's a good start!]

Word of Warning, some things might have watermarks from photobucket or whatever, so you might need to use something like Gimp or Photoshop to try and fix that...

- First check out both Granny's Lists - Modern and Futuristic Resources and
GrandmaDeb's Modern Exterior tiles (as Sci-fi often uses things that can appear modern as well) She also has quite a few links within both posts to stuff that is certainly Sci-Fi.
- Some stuff from Enterbrain/Tsukuru's Blog
- Also Check out IcyDragon's Modern/Futeristic tiles specifically, the topic also has a handy one-stop download link for the whole thing.
- Lunarea & Celianna's Steampunk tiles can also be used (though they're in parallax format, so some work needed)
- Then Joy's Futuristic Tiles - Spaceship Interior for a nice collection of edits.
- Edit1: Caitlin's Graphical World is a big mixture of stuff, with modern/Sci-Fi/Post-apocalyptic stuff included.
- Edit2: Granny's Little Bits has some more stuff mixed in. (Digging required, also some of the links inside might repeat from the other lists)
- Edit3: How could I forget Pandamaru's VXAce tilesets!

And I forget where I found others...
If I remember where they're from, I'll edit them in here. Sorry.

I've made some edits of Enterbrain/Tsukuru's metal pipes and I hope to make post more sci-fi edits in the future.

So a big bug that was on a glue trap at home is now magically not on the glue trap. This feeling of terror I'm experiencing could be a fun thing to put in my game project (not the IGMC one).
Hoping that Unite has a character generator with black hairs/lips and other features.. it is such a pain making characters without these...
Today is my dad's birthday! And he's still going strong in his retirement days!
Ooh a plugin for exactly what I was looking for... DEAD LINK. DEAD LINKS EVERYWHERE.. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!
