My friend and I am making maps using photoshop, and we have yet to figure out how to make water move or layer maps. A lot of Youtube tutorials are kind of difficult to understand and we are looking for help on making water not look like a painting. Anyone have ideas?

Usually what I would do to make animated water is to just make the water part empty and then added it in RPG Maker, it could just be something as simple as using the water autotiles 3 frames animation, or if I want something a bit more complicated I will use parallax and then animating them. This is one example of that
(youtube compression really does hurt this one quite a lot)

Malek King also have a nice tutorial on youtube on how to make the water, you can check it out here

In conclusion there are many approaches to make water in RM, while they will probably never looks as good as water in let's say a 3d game, it certainly does get the work done well enough

RMMV
layer maps require at least two pictures and either careful eventing or a script/plugin to display the second picture as the upper layer, or definately a script/plugin is you want to add a light/shadow layer.

Is this Profile Banner thing new? Or did I just discovered it now?
Well.. I was going to post my randomly generated road experiments... But the new "Attach Files" on profile posts seems to be quite buggy. Also there's no more option to insert Imgur images. Highly unfortunate. Guess I'll give them a bit to fix it and go back to messing with stuff.
my first day back to working on my project and i'm pooped!! hope to get back in the rhythm soon!
