    Hi guys!

    We like to make sure we're giving the community something they can use and enjoy, and a few of our graphical artists are very talented with regards to the amount of styles they can accommodate! With that in mind, it makes sense to put those skills to good use and create exactly what you want to see more of as a community.

    So which style do you personally use in your projects? Or is there a style you would use if there was more available for it?

    actually out of all the styles out there I think the one I'm particularily the most fond of... is... The RTP

    of rpg maker 2000

    But besides my nostalgic love for 2000's rtp (release it for ace/mv pls) I think my fave is Pop! (they've got such beautiful pixel art and palettes! them palettes omnomnomnom) then a close second's Time Fantasy (i'm more fond of Pop!'s palettes) but more importantly THAT GB RETRO PACK I'M STILL HYPED FOR IT

    I heavily use the RTP style (not so much the base tilesets that come with the engine) simply because there is more of it. However, I would heavily consider using POP if there was more of it, character-wise. I do like Time Fantasy and DS, but I've not made anything substantial with them.

    Pop is in the lead!  Time for me to consider some sci fi Pop! Tiles and sprites.

    I actually do not use POP! in any of my current projects, but it is by far the most appealing stylistically. I had a Halloween themed project that used the Horror set, but I ended up abandoning it since I missed Oct 31 by a long shot. Maybe I'll finish it for next year!

    *Rolls up sleeves*

    Don't think I can do POP! but since RTP is in close second place right now (even though it's tied with DS), would anybody like to see some monster spritesheets for the next Restaff? It will be RTP style *I think*.

    Not usually a fan of heavily pixelated graphics (even though POP does look very cute). I tend to go with either the RTP or other art styles. Freestyling for the win!

    It's such a hard call for me. I own most of these and and have enjoyed using them all; even if just for very small projects or mapping for the sake of mapping. I'm happy to have it all! I use DS/DS+ the most, and I would like to see Pop! expanded. But, it's also hard to deny the appeal of expanding RTP. See my problem!? XD

    To answer the poll question, I use PVGames style the most in my projects these days, so I had to pick Other, but I don't think anyone does this style other than PVGames himself (or am I wrong?).

    I think that's a really good idea. More monster sprites can never hurt. :)

    I'm with Matseb as a fan/user of PV Games resources that I used for ACE.

    Yet I chose RTP since I'm now on MV, and PV hasn't released full MV resources yet, and I want to try my hand at making a game with this style.

    Chaos, variety and surprise are the qualities that excite me most and I like that ReStaff is not just another streamlined sales product but a fan made pack. In my opinion every artist should add the topic and style she or he likes the most, therefor and also because I like all of those and all other styles equally, NULL-Vote from me... (no offense Caz, I really appreciate your hard work!)

    RTP is winning with POP in a close second place! *yay* \(*3*)/ *pompom dance*

    I have to agree partly with felsen too; variety is the spice of life and artists are always free to choose. Even so, knowing what kind of resources are currently lacking/in demand widens your perspective and can possibly result in more happy faces. Spread the cheer around yo, 'tis the HoHoHo season ᒄ₍⁽ˆ⁰ˆ⁾₎ᒃ♪♬

    I'm using the MV RTP. I really like the style, I just wish there were more modern\industrial tiles available for MV.

    Technically I've used the RTP for Ace the most but my favorite purely visually even though I haven't made use of it yet is Time Fantasy. I am currently making use of Pixel Myth Germania (Which I now think might be the coolest thing ever) so I ultimately voted other.

    I'd give anything for a beautiful, transparent ice autotile, and possibly more winter tiles because I find them prettiest of all *3* If I ever get MV someday, it's going to be purely for the graphics; there's some bold additions to it's RTP.

    Talking about Time Fantasy, that one tree is the preview reminds me of one of Caz's restaff trees (*/\*).

    I'm not creating a game, myself, but personally i like DS/DS+ and POP! the most. But since i can only pick one, i went with DS.

    I wonder what this poll would look like if it were multi-choice in asking us which styles we use the most, and included Germania etc?

    Just wanted to point out that RTP can mean RM2k/2k3, XP, VX Ace or MV RTP.

    Might be a bit confusing if we're not specific about which RTP people prefer to use since they're different styles and sizes as well.

    Good work to all the contributors for providing so much valuable resources to the community. ^ ^
