How to Change your Icon set in MV
If you would like to replace your default iconset with a different or larger one, this is how to do it.(one way, at least).
First find an iconset that you would like to use.
Next, download it to your pc.
The file may say something like:
Joe's Big Bad Iconset
bigbad.png





If you import it like this, it will not work.
You will have to change the name of the downloaded file to:
IconSet (case sensitive)

iconset1.png






In Tools go to Resource Manager

MV Resource 4.png




Click on img/system

MV Resource 2.png





Click on IconSet.png

MV Resource 3.png



Click Delete

MV Resource 5.png

This will delete the default iconset.

Do not import the new one without deleting the old one first.
Now click on Import .



Find your new Iconset and double click it.

The new iconset will now appear where the old one was and work perfectly.

Every icon is 32x32 pixels, you can make your own iconset in for example GIMP. Create new layer not wider than 512, length you can make whatever you want (just remember it must be multiple of 32). So your iconset may be even 512x3200 pixels. If you want to easily add new icons in GIMP you can make grid.

I'm weird as there are a few game franchises I'll watch and read about, but have no interest in playing.
Humans have such a capacity to assign personalities and love to objects. We do this because we love them. It's interesting then that our fears over AI are that they won't love us back and will instead hate us.
I'm actively looking for people who want to recreate classical compositions in the public domain for RPG Maker games. I've got a whole kick going on of looking for several resources from anyone which would be sharable amongst commercial games. This latest pursuit is something I'm surprised no one else has started doing.
I played Deltarune chapter 2 today! It was great. No spoilers, but I hope one day I can design a world as interesting as Toby Fox and team.
