Attached is an image showing what issues I'm having and the settings I'm using.

My game uses taller, sometimes wider sprites. Pictured is a character who is 2.5 tiles tall (hat included). Also pictured is that very hat going through the top of a nearby couch, and his body hiding under some sheets. Many people have complained about this bug, and it is generally believed that it's caused by having too many "star passability" tiles in one place.

On the left side of the image, you will see the settings for CP_Large_Sprite_Fix, a plugin included with the program that's supposed to fix this issue by tagging the star tiles with a terrain tag of 7 in the tileset editor (see top-right of the image). While this does seem to fix some of the tiles, it does not fix all of them.

Now, I am not a programmer, but I will do my best to describe how I think this issue can be easily solved.

Basically, it uses the same concept as the Large Sprite Fix plugin, only instead of having one terrain tag, you'll have two.

The first will make its respective tile always appear above the entire sprite (used for bridges or tree leaves in the foreground).

The second will make its respective tile only appear above the sprite if the sprite's "anchor" (bottom-centermost point) is IN the same ROW as the tile itself OR higher.

If this plugin could be edited or re-made to do exactly as I've described, by giving the developer total control over the way each star tile works, I believe it should bypass this issue entirely.

Are you sure you have the latest and greatest version?  The original plugin did have a couple of bugs, which I fixed and tested thoroughly.  I don't believe this issue should happen with the current version.

What is the save date of the .js file you have?  If it's October 22, it's the old version.

Well, it's... October 23rd. So it's slightly newer than that. Dunno if it's the fixed version, though.

EDIT: On that note, I don't really know where to go to get updated plugins (short of re-installing MV) or when/where/how to be notified of updates.

Um... Actually, this made the problem worse. Now, every single star tile appears above the player sprite, no matter where he's standing.

The star tiles are still marked as having a terrain tag of 7, so no changes other than replacing the plugin have been made.

Dachimotsu, please do not bump your topic unless it has been 72 hours later since your last post. You can review our forum rules here. Thank you.

Can you please send me your map and your tileset?  And your Tilesets file from the Data folder.

@Dachimotsu: I'm currently using the old plugin the came with MV because the new one has star tile always on top issue you mentioned.

One way I'm getting around with what you said about "first will make its respective tile always appear above the entire sprite" in the opening post, all I did was to just set the Terrain tag back to 0.

I've been working on something on and off for a few years now, and I've been reluctant to share any details on the project before I had anything playable because I did not want to generate hype only for the project to go back on hiatus. That being said I believe what I'm working on is very unique and pushes the boundaries of what RPG Maker projects can be. Bold claims, I know but just wait.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms :)

I did an experiment to try to solve the art style problem between RTP and 3D models.
But, it feels this grimdark world is going to end even faster. :kaoswt2:
