    For those of you who own Pyxel Edit I've made a template for four sizes of autotiles. These templates aren't going to be useful in anything else, but in Pyxel Edit they're set up so that you can see different test configurations as you draw and make sure everything matches up the way you expect it to, then you can copy and paste it into your tileset file. Since Pyxel Edit is a pixel program it's not going to be as useful in creating non-pixel styles. Sorry.

    Autotemp16 and autowall16 are for making 16x16 tiles that will later be doubled or tripled in size, like POP! Horror, Time Fantasy, and Old School Modern tiles. These tiles could be used in VX, Ace, and MV. You'll have to resize them on your own.

    Autotemp24 and autowall24 are for making 24x24 tiles that will later be doubled in size for use in MV. You'll have to resize them on your own.

    Autotemp32 and autowall32 are for 32x32 tiles like in VX and VX Ace.

    Autotemp48 and autowall48 are for the 48x48 tiles in MV.

    This is a little off topic but thanks for introducing me to this program - I like it so much better than Graphics Gale.

    Once you've completed them you export the image and then crop what you need? Or is there a way to export only the autotile part you need? PyxelEdit is amazing btw, just like you said. I'm in love for auto-tiles.

    I like to just copy it and paste it into a new document in GIMP.

    @Sharm: I had the free download version and either it didn't have the select tool, or I didn't see it. I'm the proud new owner of the full version now. One thing I'd like to say is that by using your template, I learned everything I need to know about how autotiles work really quickly. Doing is better than reading any day! :kaoblush:

    Yeah, I don't think the free version has a selection tool. I guess you'd have to export and crop in a different program in that version. It's an extremely early build, the latest one is vastly improved and much, much more stable. You're going to enjoy it even more now, it's got loads of good stuff. For instance, I find the palette features to be crazy useful.
