So I downloaded the Time Fantasy DLC off Steam! I got the tilesets in right, but I don't know how to make the Icons work!

There's three separate icon thingies, and one of them is inside the RPG Maker MV folder in the DLC pack, so I assume that's the only one I care about, but I put it into my img/system with the resource manager and it doesn't do anything?

It's called TF_Icon_24RMMV.PNG.

Help, please. I don't want to have bought this stuff for nothing!

You put it in the right place but the engine won't recognize it until you rename the file "IconSet", replacing/deleting the existing RTP version in that folder.
Or if you plan on using icons from both, merge them using image editing software that supports transparent png.

Just to explain things a bit more, the engine only reads ONE iconset file, and that is the file called IconSet. So the file that you want to use must be called IconSet. As MadRam said above, if you want icons from two or more sets, you need to combine them into a single, longer iconset. Longer because the iconset file's width needs to be that exact width, you cannot add more column/width to it, just rows/height.

Um, okay! I'll try that then, thanks. So I need to rename the Time Fantasy icon one. Do I let it replace the original one?

I don't think that IconSet is for MV, did the DLC pack come with another folder for Ace?

If it isn't for MV, why did I buy it off the Steam RPG Maker MV DLC list? And why does the folder say RPG Maker MV? And why does the file have the name "RMMV"? It's for RPG Maker MV! Please try and help.

You see in your folder how you have three iconsets? The one labeled MV is actually mislabeled. tf_icon_32 is the right one. MV uses 32x32 icons, while VX Ace uses 24x24.

Well, looking at your screenshot, its definitely not an MV sized iconset. Probably an oversight on the creator or maybe the folder has MV and Ace variations and you either used the wrong one, or the creator mislabeled them. Try to find which of the sheets has the same width as the original IconSet file and use that one.

Okay, I just replaced the current one with the 32 one now. I'll see if it works. :)
