So I wanna use parallax maps in my game, which means I have a plugin that reads pictures for the maps.

Anyway, as for actually making the maps... I want to use standard tile sets, but since I'm using parallax maps and pixel based movement, I don't want them to be on a "grid". So basically I'm looking for a tool that lets me import a tileset and select tiles just like RPG Maker, but instead of placing them on a grid I want to place them wherever. Right now I'm just using Photoshop, but it's kind of a pain and I'm wondering if there are better solutions.

best way is to use Orange Mapshot. Make the ground into the editor (also some simple cliffs and paths)
that you can edit. after the screenshot is taken, open the file into photoshop, gimp or krita.

you can edit it there with whatever you want.
there is a couple of nice tutorial from fallen lorelei, so watch here video through the link.

It's funny, the only reason I haven't actually released a prototype or demo is not that I don't have one. Hahahahahaha I do, I've had a prototype for months. I'm really just concerned with someone taking it, and putting it up on Steam or something first, then saying it's theirs. I should probably look into setting all that up or something... Then again, I have no ETA on the full game so not sure it's worth it yet.

Is it me or while modifying RTP style SV Actor sets to make them taller, the idle animation is the hardest to get right? I think it's because that's the one that you see most so seeing pixels that look wrong make you constantly seek to correct that.
