Hello, I'm making my own game with RMXP and I have trouble with tilesets. More precisely, I don't know how to edit the default tileset to contain an object from other tileset. Also where are the default tilesets? In folder /graphics of my project I see only those tilesets that I added.

The default assets are stored else where in a folder called RTP inside the software's directory (those assets, called RTP assets are only copied into your project when you deploy your project. That way, it saves some disk space while you are working on your project). For example, this is my folder's path on my PC:
Code:
Z:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\RPGXP\rtp
It might be on disk C:\ for you though.

As for how to modify a tileset, you can modify a tileset inside the database/tileset section. However, if you want to change the content of inside a part of the tileset, you have to do it with a third party software (people usually use GIMP or Photoshop).

The regular graphics can be found here if it's not in your projects by default:
Code:
E:\Steam\steamapps\common\RPGXP\rtp
Of course, you need to correct it to your actual pathing. If you own any DLCs, it's also gonna be available in the RPGXP folder.

As for adding other items to a tileset, just use gimp (free) or photoshop (paid). You can keep expanding at the bottom of the tileset if that makes sense. You can keep expanding the tileset vertically, but not horizontally. One tileset can contain all the default tilesets if needed, but I advise against it unless it's specifically required.

Also, for RMXP, you have three layers, but you can also use Events as a fourth layer for mapping, just to add the details that you don't manage to squeeze in with three layers.

Hey. I need again help. I'm using gimp to take some tiles into one tileset, but after I save it it lose transparent background. I extract it into png image and then what should be transparent changes into blue. Am I doing something wrong? Am I saving in wrong format?

v here how it looks like after I saved it.
edit: I have to change the name of it because it changed every tile in previous maps ;-;

I use photoshop, so I haven't used Gimp personally, but it's a popular program for people who don't wanna spend money on Photoshop (as it's crazy expensive). PNG is the right file format, so I'm not sure if there is a setting that fills the void with a random color. Seeing as the color is greenish and not white, it might be something that could be tweaked. I'd advise against just plainly removing the color background as pixels sometimes hug other objects and the shadows also gets the tint of the background color as it's somewhat transparent. So work with the original tiles to combine the tilesets with the transparent background to keep the quality of the tileset as best you can :D

i have like 5 projects in the backburner and it's just so sad that i probably won't get to finish all or maybe even any of them
Did you know that 90% of people in the world use the number in their sentence as they see fit?
It's been a long time since I was here but I have a lot of updates... btw I am teaching again about game programming and game design in some schools here in Brazil hahahaha It's good to see kids and teens learning this kind of thing!
welp, I literally can't continue working on ALEX now that my MZ trial is up (unless I somehow place in the jam which I don't remotely deserve to for my unfinished crap) so I am back on my bullshit
