I am a complete noob with RPGMaker.. I have been making games for years in Flash and am now making the transition to something usable on mobile devices. I happen to love RPGs so figured I would start with RPG Maker MV. But, it has only been a couple of weeks, so I could use some advice on my map.

I am trying to use parallax, although I have no idea how to make this work in the game yet. But, before I did that, I wanted to be sure people didn't find it too busy or too open or too... whatever.

There will be bunnies in the top left field, llamas in the top center, bee hives in the middle field and crops and chickens at the bottom. I followed a tutorial to do the parallax and found some tile sheets that I adored. Then I added shadows to give it more depth. Too Busy? Need highlights? I am approaching this from someone who just knows art and not RPGMaker, so any tips will be helpful.

Thanks.

This is definitely not where you should post this, it should be posted here instead: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/game-map-screenshots-9.74415/#post-700469

Your map looks really good for a first attempt, though I'm a little confused by the large empty spots in the top right. You brush you're using for grass needs to be brought up on it's density a lot. It's too opaque and fuzzy and looks out of place. I would also look at adding details to the top and bottom of your waterfall!

Thanks. I will go ahead and post it over there.

The blank areas are going to be filled with animals (bunnies, llamas, bees, chicken). I will take a look at the grass brush. Thanks for your thoughts.

@Dizzledorfs before you post again over there, if you report your own original post and just type that you need it merged to the maps and screenshots topic the Mods will do so for you!

And it will look a lot better with some animals in there.

Terribly depressed. Worst birthday I've had in years, no motivation to work on anything. Still no income. At least I've got my computer running again.

I THINK I have a slightly better grasp on drawing my maps now... sorta. I still need to figure out how to draw a city of sorts. I've only got the abstract going so far.
One day, I'll not have this lingering cough and we'll have another make a game stream.
