Hey guys, so I'm really new to RPG Maker but I have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing.

1. I need help figuring out how to make a lake using the water tiles from the Germania expansion. They only alow me to make a 2x4 spread of water, and repeat it over and over rather than a large spread of water

2. Since the same answer can probably apply to this, I also want to know how to smooth out tiles rather than making them look like individual pieces that are put together. I've attached a picture of what I'm going for, and a picture of my results.

Notice how the house has no separation? And how the water is a full stream? How did they do that? I've tried shift clicking, examplehouse.jpg but it never works...

Here's my example of the problems I'm dealing with: Example 2.jpg

 Thanks a lot for any help you guys!

It looks like you've got the tiles in the wrong slots.  They're all labeled with the name of the slot they should go in, A1, B and so on.

Can you explain? Which tiles belong where? I know A1- A5 are labeled....but sometimes when I put the tiles in their seemingly right place they don't load properly, or are jumbled together...thus why I decided to branch them out into the different sections. Thanks a lot for your reply though.

RMMV
The filename of the tilesets contain the label of the slot they are required to be placed in.

I don't know the names of the Germania Tileset, so I'll use the default tilesheets as an example:

For example the tilesheet "World_A1" has to go into the slot A1 (first slot in the tileset tab of the database).

Whenever a tilesheet doesn't load properly, that is proof that you placed it into the wrong slot.

Give us a screenshot of your tileset definition, and we can tell you where you placed the tilesheets wrong.

For a long time I always consider XP soundtracks as the best one.
Just listened to some of MZ tracks from the free version.
It's... Quite mindblowing. xD
Only listened to the battles, towns, and fields.
But I'm sure the rest are equally good. :D
What do you guys want to see for the new Jump into Javascript? A continuation of the rpg_objects, or would you prefer a "lesson 0" where I go back to the absolute basics of Javascript and cover the fundamentals of the language and its construction?
Hey RPG members!!

How do you finish projects? Some new game developers start off strong but end up losing momentum. What keeps you motivated while working on new projects?
Feeling wee sleepy.. ZzzZ
