To be honest I wouldn't pay 99 cents for an rpg maker game

Shouldn't a game be more judged on story, mechanics, characters, quality, and such, rather than how the game was made?

On topic (which is where we should be anyway) - 

I know people like how my village on the previous page looked, but can I get any suggestions as to how I can further improve the map? Please and thank you.

Finally completed my new blacksmith shop, complete with shadows. Let me know what you think.

Killing two birds with one stone here by not only trying out a different 'style' of house (visible roof shape, no back wall, etc.), but also practising with Celianna and Lunarea's steampunk tiles for my technology-based country:

@DBDragoner: I like the layout and structure of your map, however I have to say that carpets don't work the way you've mapped them. That "T" shape just doesn't work and I would just split it into 2 carpets instead.

Got the upper floor of a house made. Not feeling as comfortable with this map honestly...

SaiScottThe house is adorable. Maybe a bit of carpet for a splash of color. I think the top wall title might be a bit heavy for this map.

@DBDragoner: I agree with Chaos Avian, the carpets look unrealistic, you should either split the T into 2 carpets, or join both carpets to make a much larger rectangle.

As for the blacksmith's workshop, you need an anvil, some coal in the forge (and maybe even a fire, that would look cool), and you definitely, DEFINITELY need a chimney or an open window! Have you ever smelled coal burning? It STINKS!

@Panda: That is amazingly adorable

@Kim_Shyuen: Is that a room in a house or an entire house? The shape of it is strange for a house, it makes sense if it's just a room though. The atmosphere and colors look good, but I think there should be more room between the shelves/cupboards.

@SaiScott

You have a perspective problem.  The wall where the  short steps up to the sleeping areas is 2 tiles high.  The back wall is also 2 tiles high.  You have to do this the same way as cliffs, so the narrow walls by the steps need to be 3 tiles high.

You have very 'rustic' walls and roof - yet those windows are rather delicate.  I would expect something more robust in a house built like this.

tbh I don't like the tile you have chosen as the 'ceiling' tile.  It looks more like an external roof tile than an internal one.  It also does something strange to the perspective of the floor at the bottom.

As you are using railings, have you considered using them to mark the edges of your main stairs, so that the large area of ceiling tiles could become floor tiles instead.  I think that might make it less heavy in that bottom left corner.  This is a bit difficult to explain in words.  But it's where stairs emerge out of the floor, with banisters round them.

This says more about the people that use it than the engine itself. It's like saying "I wouldn't pay 10 bucks for a Unity game."
That I would pay for ...

Sprites too small for all thats around here.

Made this to pass time...

What do you think? 

Do you have a sprite as big as that cross and the trees? No? Everything should be sprite proportionate. Good job though.

@Strashiner:  I'm not sure what to think.  It's unusual, and there's some obvious effort put into making it.  But there's just way too much red, and I feel like it's only there to make the photo edit of the trees less obvious.  I kind of like the trees, but they clash quite a bit with the decorative elements, like the sign and tree stump.  I'd be curious to see what sort of sprite would work with a map like that.  A photo would be too real and jarring, but anything less would likely be too cartoony.  I donno.  It's a strange map.

Lol, hope this helps a little...

The cross is taller because its a head sign. Before this dialogue it gave the player the location...

I used a photo edit of a tree mainly because this was meant to be a surreal moment during the demo. lol...

Yep, it clashes.  Edited photos are something you have to plan your whole art direction around, it's not something that can be used casually in one spot.  I think there are other, better ways to get a surreal look.

Another thumb update. The nail is beginning to break away, along with the aforementioned hard and blackened dead skin. The final join has regained some of its flexibility, tho it's a bit stiff after being held still for so long. The very tip of my thumb has a strange dry and somewhat tingly feeling to it when I touch it to something, but at least it isn't numb. I am so ready for this to be over. :o
Can I get away with calling a "shortsword" a dagger and not a sword?
So here's the full cycles, I'm not so familiar with actually animating and giving motion so any observation on that matter would be really helpful! :kaoswt:
