So I happen to have some tilesets that are more side-scrolling than top-down and I had a question or two. I know that each sheet for each thing needs to be a certain size... But as these definitely weren't made for rpg maker, putting the sheets available to the correct sizes isn't helping. Unfortunately I'm assuming that even if it's 48x48, if it's not the proper size, it won't fit in the editor right? So, basically I was wondering 2 things...

A. Is there anything that let's you make custom tilesheets out of the sheets I have... I ask that because

B. Should I just take apart these sheets and re-format them for MV?

And if this is in the wrong section, I'm sorry about that..

What are the sheets you're using, and where did they come from? Can you give a link?
Normally if you are using images that weren't made for RPG Maker, you need to reformat them. So option B.

sure, here's a link https://muchopixels.itch.io/city-street-tileset-pack tho. they're 16x16 naturally... so I resized them to 48x48... but because of their arrangement on the sheets in general... they are too big for the editor based on the sized needed. So yeah, I'm guessing just rearrange the sheets myself?

Yeah, you will need to reformat.

Anything you put on any of the A sheets should not have transparency. When you draw an A tile on top of another A tile, the first one will be erased.

A5 is a good sheet to use for backgrounds, but it's one of the smallest. All the other A tiles are autotiles. If you can figure out how they are formatted, you might be able to make use of some of them (things like roads, maybe buildings).

You might find the 16x16 tiles on the B-E sheets won't let you fit everything, and if that's the case, you'll have to create different Tilesets for individual "areas" using just the tiles you need in those areas.

Honestly though, I've been staring at the same half-made map for a while now haha! Ahhh, I'm so tired of mapping!
Time to add the support for import/export default RMXP maps. Maybe there will be customized tileset support later. In theory, I can reimplement the entire RMXP inside this RMXP-made game to make more RMXP games. :kaojoy:RMXPFORMATSUPPORT.jpg

If you're a RM plugin developer, and you're reading this...

Thank you. You're awesome. Even if I haven't used your plugin, your work is appreciated.
