    I recently got MV and its larger graphics seem to be less of a hassle to edit and hence more enjoyable to work with. There's still a lack of good Asia themed stuff. I'll be adding some new stuff every now and then when I have some free time.


    Bagua Icons


    "Bagua" refers to the Eight Trigrams, which symbolize basic aspects of Chinese cosmology. It is also used in Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Tibetan mysticism and martial arts. The symbols from left to right are as follows: the Taiji (the classic yin-yang symbol), Heaven, Wind, Water, Mountain, Earth, Lightning, Fire, Lake. The last two characters are the words for "Magic" and "Martial" (as in Martial Arts).

    Sixiang Icons


    "Sixiang" are the "Four Symbols" - the Black Warrior (Tortoise-Snake) of the North, White Tiger of the West, Vermilion Bird of the South, and Azure Dragon of the East. Below these four icons I added the Chinese characters for "Water," "Earth," "Fire," and "Heaven."

    [​IMG]



    East Asian Neon Signs


    East Asian neon signs with actual East Asian characters. These are modifications of the original signs in the SF_Outside_B tileset in the RTP. It seemed odd that a Japanese company put gibberish instead of actual East Asian scripts. The signs are as follows: top left - hotel (Korean), top right - bar / drinking establishment (Korean), bottom left - "Eastern Restaurant" (Dongfang Fandian [Chinese]), bottom second from left - "Big Dipper Tower" (Beidou Dalou [Chinese]), bottom third from left - "Dragon Garden" (Longyuan [Chinese]), middle right - "Downtown" (Honmachi [Japanese - in katakana script]), bottom right - "Hokkaido" (Japanese - in Kanji script).

    Large Xieshan (Large hip-and-gable roofs for palaces or temples)


    [​IMG]

    Decorative Artworks


    A simple addition that can be used for parallax mapping - artworks to add some flavor to a room. In order from left to right and top to bottom: Yongwang taenghwa (Korean portrayal of the dragon king deity), calligraphy of Song Dynasty artist Mi Fu, "Dream Journey to the Peach Blossom Land" by Goryeo Dynasty painter An Gyeon, three Edo Period Kabuki actor prints by Toshusai Sharaku.

    Korean Palaces


    Deoksugung 德壽宮 (UPDATED: 2016/07/14)


    A palace based on the Deoksugung palace complex in Seoul. This is again made purely by scratch and is probably the most difficult pixel art I've ever made so far. This can be added to a Tileset or parallax map.

    [​IMG]



    *NOTE*: Deoksugung can be used for any project, but you must request permission to use it in a commercial project.


    Hip-and-gable Tile Roofs


    Alternate roofs that can be used for any East Asian themed game. They were based on the Korean palace graphics, but generic enough to be used for a Chinese or Japanese themed setting. They are optimized to fit in a tile set. (I just noticed that there's a slight pixel error at the right edge of the bottom one - this can be easily fixed in any image editor.)

    My Japanese wife gave the literal translation for the last two, if you don't mind.


    To clarify for those who would like to use these in the correct context, the 2nd to last can be used for 'magic' but it also means Akuma which means 'devil'


    The last one is 'bushido' and 'Take' (Tah - Kay). Martial works as well.

    I don't mind. :)  Cultural context is important. I actually wanted to put the full word 魔術 but the icon is too small.


    [I am Chinese for the record.]

    Added a Korean palace hall based on Junghwajeon (Deoksugung palace complex) in Seoul.


    I just noticed a slight pixel error when I uploaded this. I'll fix that when I include other parts of the Deoksugung palace complex.


    Out of curiosity, how much of a demand is there for authentic East Asian architecture? This thing took hours to make and lots of trial and error to get the right look.

    Everything you use needs to have credit. For the RTP edits you need to credit both Kadokawa Corp. and me. For the Korean palace content, you need to credit me only because I made those myself. For the decorative artworks, those are taken off of Google searches from museum websites. Those I'm not sure. I would suggest not using in commercial games. But then again they were produced hundreds of years ago so I'm not sure how copyright laws deal with that.

    Added a new building: a Chinese row house. Note that it can function somewhat like an autotile if incorporated into a tileset - I sized it based on MV's 48x48 format.
