I just recently got Aseprite to make my custom sprites. But, I don´t know how to put them together in a sprite sheet and keep the true 16-bit feeling in it. without scaling or extending the pixel-count do to scaling. any help or website will be appreciated.
Note: if there is a post with this information I did not find it. sorry if there is any inconvenience.

Excuse me but...

What exactly is a 16-bit sprite? :kaoswt2: (edit: oh, silly me, obviously I know what you mean ^^')

Anyway if this can help you, you can add a '$' in front of the name of your sprite file.

e.g : your file is mySprite.png -> change it to $mySprite.png

The format of a standard sprite sheet is 3 frames, 4 directions. then it's a 3x4 sheets with cells equally sized (meaning that the width is logically divisible by 3, and the height by 4)

I know the style of a 16 bit is different from a 8 bit one but what I mean I want to make simple and classic sprites that are 8x8 and 16x16 but RPG maker can only accept 48x48 by default I want to do them smaller without doing the scaling if I have to do scaling and I do not have other options I will do it.

hmm

Besides with parallax mapping I don't think you'll be able to do it. RPG Maker indeed only takes tilesets that are 48x48px of size.

As for characters, they can be of any size.

Well, since I'm in lockdown, I guess it's finally time to get serious into rpgmaking... almost 20 years later.
