    @Alexander Hawksmoor I have no idea why, but for some reason I saw your map and thought it was on a ship. Maybe it's the ladder instead of stairs.

    I have been wondering the same thing but im sure it says stairs is in the editor lol.
    If you're right now I'm gonna stick my head down the toilet.

    Update - Just checked cause I had to know and it definitely says large stairs :p

    @Alexander Hawksmoor I, too, didn't think it was a ship, but for a different reason.

    A ship will often be in rough waters. People will not have stuffed toys, books etc unsupported on open shelves. Every time the ship rolls, everything would fall off.

    The same applies to those windows - there is no way you'd have windows like that in a ship. You need to find round windows that could be port holes. Open candles would be a no-no on a wooden ship, they would be protected lanterns. I'm dubious about those potted plants as well.

    I'm not saying that you have to go for hyper-realism, but I do think it helps to have some logical consistency between location and objects.

    @Kes Sorry I don't follow. It was never meant to be a ship, it's actually the 2nd floor of a house lol. I was just confused as sharm pointed out the stairs looked like ladders and I was just confirming that the fsm tilesets did say they were stairs and not ladders.

    @Alexander Hawksmoor Oops! Sorry about that. I misunderstood what was being said.

    Overall, I think it looks really good! Positioning of things is good, tileset is beautiful, land details are appropriate in quantity and not intrusive. I do have 3 criticisms, though: The river looks a bit cluttered; I wish all the houses weren't exactly the same (especially the shops); if I played this game, I'd want the shop houses to be more easily distinguishable somehow.

    Anyway, so as to not clutter the thread, I have something of my own I want suggestions on:
    characters.png
    Do you all have any name suggestions? I have name ideas for a few, distinguished by their hair colors:
    Grey: Sierra
    Lavender: Julia
    Blue: ?
    Green: ?
    Red: ?
    Pink: Joseph
    Brown: ?

    I'll consider those! And a friend of mine actually also suggested Mariam for the brown-haired one XD

    Naming characters has nothing to do with maps or screenshots. Please don't hijack threads.

    I thought an image of my characters would be counted as a screenshot. Where should I have posted?

    Feedback on resources would be Resource Support but you weren't asking for feedback on the art itself. Since you're asking for help with character development I believe this would either be a project thread (if you have enough for one) or in "ideas that don't deserve their own thread" under ideas and prototypes.

    It's been a long time since I posted a map. I went with a school theme since the school event and the IGMC events are on now. (Wishing everyone the best of luck btw, and of course to have fun!)

    So I mapped an auditorium of a random university where our beloved heroes teach to the immense cast of MV. And of course, Harold was the guinea pig in class... resulting in comical situations :kaojoy:

    (Also huge thanks to the amazing battlers from @ShadowHawkDragon and Avery's icons, their art was a real inspiration!)

    @Rabosion No one in the front seats? Is it that scary? :D
    Looking at the illustration projected, I'd like to listen to it :thumbsup-left:

    About the map itself, with the three people in the back row, it becomes obvious that they're just small sprites standing on too big a chair. The easiest solution would be to remove those three guys.
    And why are there music notes above the cake? (is it one?)
    And the blackboard is too small and useless in this room. No one will be able to read whatever is written there.

    Thank you for the kind words, @cabfe ! :kaothx:
    Everyone is welcome in Marsha's class, the more the merrier. Harold surely won't mind:kaohi:

    I was confused with the front seat part you mentioned, but I think I see what you mean. Those aren't actually front seats, they are meant to be writing desks for the people on the front seats. The writing desks are also for the slimes to sit on to make them noticeable. In the spoiler below you can see what I mean:
    Chairs.png
    Chairs2.png
    Granted, from this perspective it's almost impossible to distinct the first desk thingie from the other chairs.
    Speaking of chairs, I had to make the compromise of making them a bit too large so I could bring in those desks at all. Maybe there might be a better middle ground I still have to figure out.:kaoswt:
    And thank you for the tip about the blackboard, I will keep that in mind!

    The cake you mentioned is actually a Chickity who seems to have a liking for Harold's cherries. Don't worry, his mom granted Marsha permission to bring him to class. ( Poor Harold shouldn't have challenged him though ;))

    Without the notes - normal and angry :
