of course - but there are several ways and you don't give enough info to even guess what you want.

I simply need to have some grass activated by a switch, and then for the player to fall on it, with the falling image.

that doesn't sound as if you want two overlapping images, but as you want a tile and a sprite at the same position. That isn't even a problem, that is basic eventing of the simplest kind.

I strongly suggest that you at least work through the build-in tutorials of MV before continuing with your game.

And if you still have problems after that, please show us the screenshot of the events you have done so that we can tell you where you went wrong.

But as I mentioned I need images because the grass is switched on... tiles can't use switches, no?

events can be switched and use tile images. Just scroll down the sprite list to the bottom where you see the tile lists.

and as said above, if you have problems making the events then show us the screenshots of what you already have and we can help.
We cannot help without details of what you're trying to do.

Dejavu anyone ?
yes, because we cannot make the entire game for someone else.
If someone is stuck with a complex problem then he'll get help here, but if someone is missing the basic elements of the engine then he or she needs to learn those basics or the game will never be finished.

True. I just had a chuckle as I read pretty much the exact comment by you on a post from the same person back-to-back

You cannot use tiles from the A tab in events. So if you want grass, you will have to use an image editing program, copy a single grass tile (perhaps one from the A5 sheet if it's there, so you don't have to worry about positions on autotiles), then paste it to the B, C, D or E sheet. Don't use the very first tile in the B sheet - if there isn't room, you'll need to remove something else that you don't want. Then you'll be able to use that tile in an event by scrolling to the bottom of the sprite list, as Andar said, and selecting the sheet you copied it to.

To make two events occupy the same position, one of them has to have THROUGH turned on.

ok by this weekend I WILL finally need alpha testers for Backstage: murdered sleep because it's got enough content at this point I want to get it on Steam Early Access ASAP (2/22/2022 would be a cool release date if I can make it).

By all means volunteer here, sure, but where else should I be looking?

Current menu of Shadows of the Earth: The Vrila'an Legend. Currently taking a break from combat related mechanics. Hope i get the actor busts done before the day ends :)
Was in need for a black van, so I made one by editing that one truck in the tileset. :kaoswt2:

I honestly haven't ever been really active in this community, even though this year will mark my 4th year of having an account and 5th or 6th of using RPG maker. I didn't do anything with RM for most of 2020 and 2021 for personal reasons, but I'm excited to get back into game making!
