Sorry if I posted in the wrong place.

I was thinking about purchasing First Seed Materials assets but I was unsure if I could use them commercially or not.

Thanks! A bit off topic but in your opinion do you think FSM is unique enough to release commercially? I know it's taboo to sell a game with RTP.

It's probably one of the most popular DLC, so I'd bet it definitely won't feel unique to the players.

FSM allows a lot of very different maps, depending on what you do with it.

Keep in mind, you can combine tilesets by mix & matching parts, you can change the colors for tilesets and you can use overlay or light effects on maps to visually distinguish maps from one another. With well-made maps, people won't notice nor care whether you've used FSM or not.

People pay more attention to the overall feel of your map, than study the tileset pixels.

I think FSM is different enough from the RTP that with some simple customization, most people probably won't notice that it's FSM unless they either have those graphics themselves, or they just play a whole bunch of RM games.

I bought the whole collection not long ago and could not be happier with it! I've struggled for an art style for my game for years and feel I've hit it right on the head. It is different from the RTP, the color palette is more muted, which I like, and it feels like a game crafted with them can hold a more serious tone. As was stated by @Anyone you can mix and match the sets (which I have done to create an amazing map just recently using all the FSM tilesets) recolor existing, etc. On top of all that, if you use the assets and edit/frankenstien or create your own content to match the tilesets, you can create unique pieces that are in your game only.

In a nutshell, I do not think it matters that others use the same DLC, as @TWings mentioned how popular it is. It all depends on how you use it.

Thank you guys for all the advice! I really appreciate it! I think I’m gonna give FSM a try! I’ve also started looking to commission some art as well to mix with it.

Okay someone really needs to fix that broken railing, its a health hazard...

Is it strange that dropping acid is improving my game development?
I'm starting to wonder if I should go the Half Minute Hero route with my game. The character's main weapon is logistically way too strong. So I can't really let the player continuously grow it.... But if they had to build it up each time like HMH, that could work. Also it lets me take advantage of my randomly generated maps so much more. Hmm... This could work! :LZSexcite:
