    In your terms you stated "....you cannot use my tiles to show off your project." So does that mean i can't post a compleated project, or an incomplete project, for feed back (or even just for people to play), even if i give proper credit and the project is non-commercial?

    Also, in a more recent post you said- "^It applies to all my tiles. Free for non-commercial use (if you own RPG Maker VX), but a commercial license must be purchased from me if you want to use it commercially (if you own RPG Maker VX as well).

    So, i have to own VX also even to use them in a Non-commercial project?

    Just wondering, they look really awesome.

    :) thanks.

    Yes.  Celianna made these before Ace came out, so they're subject to the VX RTP license.

    This is a dumb newbie question, but how do I download these new tilesets onto my tileset library?

    Download it

    Open up your project

    Open the resource manager

    Go to tilesets

    Click import

    Find the file

    select it

    press open

    to use:

    open up the database

    go to tilesets

    and create a new tileset and make it use the newly imported sheet

    Read it again and realize that the sentence has meaning in its context. You cannot show my tiles in screenshots when you are using crowdraising platforms like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo. Basically, if you're gathering donations, or earning money, and my tiles are being involved - you can't do it unless you purchase a commercial license.

    Yes. A thousand times yes. You NEED RPG Maker VX, regardless whether or not it's commercial.

    Poor Celianna... I've been watching people struggle with this concept throughout your thread and all I can say is that you're a saint. I've met nuns with less patience. Thank you very much for all your hard work, both on the tiles and off.

    For those who still have trouble grasping why VX is needed even if you have VX Ace, it's because many of these tiles are based on the original VX tiles. When you buy a copy of an RPG Maker system, you buy the licence to use the data contained within as well, including graphics, music, etc. However, you only get the licence to what is contained within that particular version, thus owning VX Ace does not mean you own any rights to anything contained within the original VX. Celianna is not being malicious or petty, just respecting the legal limits of what she has created based on the work of others. She gets no benefit from limiting you to owning the original VX (as far as I'm aware, though there may be some sort of referal program, I dunno, but it's kinda beside the point anyhow), she simply doesn't want you to be taken to court for using images you do not own the rights to. Chances are she would also be pulled into the fray for providing the materials and if it became too big a problem she may even be forced to no longer openly and freely distribute these resources to us, at least not without first vetting each and every recipient to ensure they have VX.

    Some of you may be wondering why she doesn't just base her work on the tilesets contained within VX Ace. Afterall, that seems to be what everyone's buying these days. That would move the problem but not fix it. A lot of people still use XP, 2000, VX, etc, and those people would be subsequently locked out too. Then a new version of RPGM would come out, and those new people would be upset at the images being restricted to them too. No matter what tilesets she bases her work on, the same issues come up.

    Then there's also the possibility of not basing any of her tiles on any of the tilesets included in any licensed material, but doing tiles from scratch is such a bigger job and it doesn't make the current tiles any less bound and she's already regularly doing other work.

    We have a talented artist here who has given us a lot and the VX restriction is not her idea nor her fault, it's just simple fact like the colour of the sky. We, as a community, should really be thankful for the free resources provided to us. If you can't afford to purchase the rights to use the VX materials then you really haven't lost anything that you had in the first place. If you can get VX or already have it, then good, again there's no real problem.

    PS. I apologise if I've overstepped my bounds talking for you Celianna, I just wanted to save you the effort of explaining yet again. I've been a subscriber to this thread for a very long time and this question has come up sooo many times...

    And by the time she made these, she might not have had Ace yet (IDK if she has it now either)... and I don't think editing the RTP is allowed if you don't have the maker, since the stand-alone RTP license is only for playing games made with the RTP... :)

    Celianna, is it possible to get you to reupload TileA4? I've tried to see it in Firefox and Internet Explorer but it simply won't show up in either.

    I love your work!! I can't wait to mess with your tiling and parallaxes.

    Yes I have. The page just stays blank but has the "loading" circle going non-stop. Once or twice I've gotten the, "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to 118.imageshack.us" message.

    I can't see A4, A5 or C, so she's not the only one with the problem.  That's strange though, that the ones missing on mine are different.  That's quite the glitch.  I'll get on a different computer tomorrow and see if it's a problem on that one too.

    I read all the terms of usage in this post. And I only that it can be only used in RPG Maker VX. How about Ace? I can't use this on Rpg Maker VX Ace? . Sorry if this is kind of a stupid question

    It can be used in VXAce, but you need to own VX too. The tilesets include edits of the VX RTP, which you need the VX maker to be allowed to use. So to use it in VXAce, you must own both VX and VXAce.

    Seriously?! There was a huge post about this 11 *SHORT* posts back.


    This whole thing has already been cleared up. VX and VXA are two different engines. Because Cel's content is created from EDITED RTP MATERIALS FROM VX. As long as you legally own a copy of VX, you may use them in any VX project. You must also own VX even if you plan to use them in any other RM engine, including VX Ace.

    The images are hidden by the spoiler tag in the first post if that's what you're asking for.  Just click on it to unhide them.
