So, I've been getting a feel for VX Ace, and what I can and can't do with tilesets and overlaying event graphics etc... I probably won't have a gameplay demo up for a long long time (not with actual gamey-game play anyway) but I'll likely have a something people can download to explore in a month or so. As the tilesets are going to be pretty specific to the world I'm building I'm not going to make them available to use, but I'm going to post here for general showcasing/feedback!

First map...took waaay too long. Here it is anyway. I'm currently working on the interior map.

I'm not an expert at maps, but I have to say I really like it. Its nice to see a different style of map, and this one works.

Although as you said this took a long time to make, the other maps will be a pain. Looking on the bright side I think it will be well worth the effort.

Thanks! I think it'll be worth the effort too...the main problem I'm having is trying to make the walkable area less noticeably grid-like.

Scaling is a bit odd too, but I don't think the sprites look -too- out of place....I set up events that change the sprite in areas of bright light and shadow. (this is going to be such a pain, hehe)

(bottom right is a wip..)

In the review stages for Pixacrea to be put up on Steam :) Coming Soon page... hopefully coming soon ;)
since all my maps are hand drawn... I admit, I super envy those who can make the tileset's work. I'm garbage at mapping, but slightly less bad at just drawing my own areas. plus it's easier to draw my own sprites than edit others to look like my characters.
Guys, I made a trailer! And, I also launched the Steam page! If you would like to support the game, please Wishlist it :ahappy: ->

aww man, color hex code #C4C4C4 doesn't work for the tint value in this scene I need something darker, which stinks just because I liked that one it was my favorite plastic explosive three times...#696969 (nice) should work better (WHY IS MY BRAIN LIKE THIS)
