    Hello everyone!

    I am quite new to this Community. And I am more or less on the quiet side. Checking out what other people do and gathering some nice ideas for my own little game.

    Anyways. That's all I got to say!

    Welcome to the group! I actually lurked here about a month before I started posting much, but well you can see where I am now. If you haven't used the engine much we do recommend working through the tutorials which there is a link to in my signature (if you can't see it you might have signatures turned off in your preferences, if so let me know and I can post the link directly if you need it).

    Otherwise I'd just recommend if you want ideas to play some demos on here and offer feedback too. That is a good way to start out.

    And otherwise, stay out of the dark corner where abandoned projects die. It's overrun by the dragon. You don't want to anger it (ok you will learn I'm a little silly somedays too).

    Welcome to the forum! I'm pretty new still too, but everyone's been pretty nice and laidback :) There's lots of cool stuff to check out here. Good luck with your game!

    Thank you guys. @bgillisp thanks especially for that. I am not really new to game developement itself. But I am still quite new to something like RPG Maker MV. While this software is supposedly easy to use, it is not as easy to make something extremly good and outstanding with it.

    As of now I am mainly using the basic assets and do some photoshopping at some point. Editing a few things here and there.
    But mainly I focus on the gameplay itself. While the graphics are minimalistic. Which isn't a big issue. It all saves a lot of time if you do something as just one person! Therefore I can relax much more than coding a entire game from the scratch. Using a Engine such as Unity Engine for example is also a nice alternative if you are working in a small group or even alone. But it is still requiring much more time.

    So I think I have found a nice software I can at least have a little more fun with in the process of developement!

    Hope it helps! I wasn't new to game development and jumped into making a big project from the start. Though if you saw what my project looked like on day 14 you'd cringe, it was bad. 90 x 90 house for starters. Who has houses that big?

    Haha, a 90x90 house. My first Village I am polishing right now has a size of 60x56 and it was already very difficult to fill this with reasonable details! So I would really love to see your 90x90 house and explore it. I am sure it is worth a entire game by itself! @bgillisp

    Haha, well it was meant to be a mansion but in the end it was just too long as everyone who played it found it boring to walk through. Final version is 36 x 28 and players seem to find that acceptable.

    I do have a game thread if you are curious of the screenshots. No demo at the moment as I had to take it down due to a critical script change which broke save games. https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/the-book-of-shadows-demo-updated-10-13-17.32221/

    You might find the videos interesting as they will give you an idea how I filled in details. And you can also post your map on the game and maps screenshot thread to get feedback from others as well, I did quite a bit of that when I was starting out here as well.

    It's quite awesome here. People already helped me out quite a lot. And whenever I cannot find a solution for something RPG Maker MV itself offers, I can come here and either bug people again or perhaps find another solution within the forums!

    Welcome. We got cake.

    And yes, the cake is real.

    And no, it isn't.

    The cake is real! You just never obtain it. But you will at least have a glimpse at it. Some eye candy!
