It would be helpful if you could explain a bit about what part of making tilesets is causing you problems. If it's getting them set up properly, I find it helpful to use one of the default sets as a guide.

@hiddenone They're asking for help finding them, not making them, this is the wrong place.

@Goblin_King Referencing a game isn't going to do you much good, most of the people who can help you probably haven't played it. Could you give a visual reference or describe "dark" better? Also, could you tell us what engine you're using? It makes a big difference on what tiles to recommend.

Two "dark" themed sets come to mind:

Medieval series by PVGames
Pop Horror series by Vexed

Ah, you want gothic tiles.

Fantastic Buildings Medieval is made for a 32x32 tile size. You can buy them and upscale them if you don't mind a slight quality drop due to the computer having to make up what goes in those 50% more pixels. So it's not that it can't work in MV, just that it needs a little extra help doing so. For upscaling, I think this: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/inde...l-scale-pixel-art-with-xbr-xbrz-or-hq.104843/ is the best option for a project like this. It has an option that helps the upscaled tiles not bleed the guesswork onto the tile next to it.

I know there are other gothic tiles around here, I just can't personally remember where. But I'm sure someone else will.

so all i have to do is upscale the Fantastic Buildings Medieval tile so that it can work well with rpg mv?

Yup, since Ace and MV have the same tile structure, there's nothing other than scale to worry about.

It needs to be 150% bigger than before for all of them. Some of the resizers don't allow for that percentage so it works if you go up by 300% then down by 50% as well.

Goal for MZ? None... I'm still curious how to finish my VXA project and how it looks like when it actually finished. Which will take at least another two years. Coming late again to the party.
Finding it amusing that people are posting support questions in new threads for an engine that isn't even released yet. Touch and Archeia are the only ones authorised to say anything, and there's only one active thread where they'll be answering questions.
I think my goal for MZ ... is to actually release a game and not have twenty technical demos and debugging projects. Let's see if I can manage that. ;o
I am starting to enjoy writing. I never thought I would enjoy it since my dyslexia was holding me back so much.
Thanks to the community here :)
For those interested chapter 2 and 3 are available to read here:
I'm having a fun time working with the MZ RTP. The waterfall hasn't changed, though, so I'm wondering if they didn't make a new one or if they forgot to put it in...
