Hello, all!
I'm new to the forums (though I have been playing around with RPG Maker since the early days of XP), so I hope I'm making this resource request correctly!
Below is my form, as per the rules of this forum...



Resource Type:
Tilesets (also possibly sprite maker parts and menu icons, TBD)

Maker Format: MV

Art Style: MV Standard

Description: This may be somewhat of a larger request, but I've been working on an idea for a game over the past several years and I think I've finally come to a point where I can realize it with RPG Maker! The only problem is that the story is set in a frozen post-apocalyptic world...and resource-wise, that seems even less common than a desert post-apocalyptic world! Think like the game Frostpunk or the movie Snowpiercer, maybe; icy forests, oceans frozen over, open plains of snowy dunes, small bastions of humanity in well-protected nooks atop the ruins of what may have once been buildings...that sort of thing. Cities have largely been leveled and buried beneath the ice. Electricity and technology still exist albeit in very limited capacity, and most places are both powered and heated by steam. Due to this, anything metal would almost certainly be rusty. Not sure what you'd call the style; it would have a similar aesthetic to steampunk...but worn and icy. So, I guess Frostpunk works?
These would just be interior and exterior tilesets, nothing for a world map.
I've been searching the forums for resources similar to what I need, but I haven't found anything yet. I'm also not opposed to using a tileset that already exits, if it could be properly "flocked."
I've included reference images to evoke the setting as well as possible examples of an existing tileset that could be edited.

Reference Images:

Thats it!
If anyone is interested - or has any ideas on existing resources I could use - I'd be happy to discuss the details further or answer any questions!
Regardless I appreciate you taking the time to read all of this, and I hope to hear from some of you soon!

So I recently stumbled across Vexed's POP! Horror series of add-ons, and I thought those could work for what I need if only they were Winter-ized...when, low and behold, I did some digging and found the Member+ pack of his which featured a single screenshot of what appeared to be just that!
My question now is: Has anyone used this Winter pack, and if so then could you show me some additional screenshots of what all is included? (In a PM please, as making such images publicly available is against the rules.) I have no problem buying it, I just don't want to do so until I know if it is what I need.

As a note: This isn't meant to be a bump. I'm posting this here even though it isn't a resource request, both to keep track of developments on my initial request and in case this lead doesn't pan out.

As POP! Horror is a paid-for dlc, additional screenshots over and above those shown on the web store page are not permitted. Nor can anyone post edited versions of such dlc.

Right, I know no one can post the pictures publicly in this thread...
But could they not send me pictures in a PM? (I could edit the message to ask for that.) Again, I’m not trying to steal anything. Just want to see more of what’s in that pack so I can tell if it’s what I need before I spend that much money on it. It’s a big investment for something that could turn out to not be right for me.
Y’know?

No we cannot. That would be a breach of the EULA
Oh, I see.
Well, that’s somewhat frustrating. I suppose I’ll have to find some other way of seeing what is included in that tileset. Maybe I can even get ahold of Vexed himself, although he has been away for some time as I understand it.

UPDATE: I went ahead and bought all of the POP! tilesets by Vexed Enigma since it seemed like it was going to be difficult to get a good idea of what was in them otherwise and the style just seemed right. I do very much like the tilesets provided, however most of them aren't "frozen" like I need, and the Winter tileset provided only features some city options but nothing from nature.
I'm thinking I could still use these tilesets, but they will need to be edited to reflect the colder setting. The good news here is that already having tilesets to start with means I don't need entirely custom ones. The bad news is that these tilesets will no doubt require a lot of editing to make them right, and while I'm not opposed to trying that myself...I've never done anything like that before.
So my request still stands: I need someone to help me edit tilesets.

Oh, sorry about that! I had posted a bump earlier in the week, but wanted to keep the bump at the end of the thread so I just edited the original to be the update and added a new one to reflect that I had already bumped it. My bad!

Bumping again.

UPDATE: No offers for assistance so far have panned out. I have been trying to do the pixel art edits myself over the past month-ish, but I don't have any experience and just can't seem to make it work. So, if anyone out there is interested, I'm still looking for assistance!

UPDATE: I've just moved/upgraded this from a free request to a paid request, so I guess this thread can either be locked or deleted entirely.

I'm play DQ:XI DE in 2d mode with the synthesized soundtrack, the only way a RPGMAKER creator should play it. :D
:/ it really get on my nerves reading stuff about how to write a resume and they say things like "turn your failures into wins!!!" ... no interview Ive ever had cared to hear anything about my failures, and why would they :( ?
"Huh? You haven't backed up yet? *menacing stare* "
Been having a lot of fun playing Hearts of Iron IV. Had to restart a few times, but now I've finally conquerd Europe with my Axis friends, and am currently invading the Soviet Union.
Guess I'll rework all the existing screens in my game. Except of the save/battle screen. For this I will be lazy and use Yanfly. With my current pace it'll take a few months.
