I am looking for a nice compass icon in color. Size 32x32.

Desired style: VX Ace icons (but anything else is pretty too...)
Desired size: MV/MZ (32x32)

It has to fit choice windows like this:

The icon in the screenshot is a placeholder, which I want to replace with something more RPGmaker-like.

Happy to help!

What are your specs? Is there an artstyle you'd like them in? Do you want the needle to be able to move, and in how many directions? Is it a physical compass or a stylised cross or something?

Oh, I just updated the original post with some additional info. I use VX Ace icons (resized by Yanfly) and it would be nice if the icon fits that theme.
Both a compass cross or a physical compass would work, as long as it is clearly a compass.

The needle doesn't have to point all four directions, but if that is an option, it would be even better. :p

See the screenshot in the original post to see what I want to use it for.

Four cardinal direction compasses for you. Hope this works!

Apologies for the double post - but I can't stop thinking that it might look better with a 4 pixel red tip on the needle - @JohnDoeNews what do you reckon?

It might, if the N was a different color. Otherwise it's red-on-red

Also, I realize this is not how a compass works. If the needles points to the left and you walk to the left, you're not walking west, but north. :p So I might go with one direction after all. (Better said: 1 icon for all directions)

If you think you can improve the compass, be my guest. But for me, the outline has to be thicker than your version was. With a thicker outline, it pretty much fits the whole Ace vibe, like the other icons in the screenshot.

If you feel like improving the compass, then maybe a diagonal needle might look nice, since I won't use directions after all, if that would be possible.

I'm off to bed though. My alarm goes in 5 hours and 38 minutes.

I was just too curious, so I tried to solve the problem by roughly writing the specifications of the RPG Maker style system (like a programming language).

I can able to see that ChatGPT-3 understands the problem well and proposes a solution according to the specifications I defined.

Adobe Premiere just crashed so hard it broke my GPU drivers sending me on a DDU quest. Why does this company with it's awful software subscription model and bloated software still dominate the industry? :rolleyes: Can we collectively agree to not support this company any more?

struture-wise, my game operates more like a beat 'em up than an rpg. so each area of the city you run around in counts as a stage when you first get there. A silhouette of the boss/bosses will be in these stage intro pics, along with the stage name.
I still do this kinda stuff and I think this came out really, really well. Solo violin really helps this piece shine.
Currently at beginner level, checking tutorials on YT and Skillshare
