[SIZE=12pt]I am building an isometric RPG game. The maps or floors or rooms look much like Diablo I and Diablo II. I have tall thin walls that span several grid blocks,, floors and objects that lie on the floors. My maps are currently in two forms as PSD comprised of hundreds of layers and as Tiled maps from the map maker Tiled, Can I get the Tiled maps imported into RPG maker MV? If I can how do I handle the draw order so that things will be behind other things and in front of others as they should be. Am I asking too much of RPG Maker MV should I be looking at Unity to handle this level of complexity? I look forward eagerly to your response. If you need to see a tile map first I can supply such material. [/SIZE]

RMMV
There is a tiled-plugin to allow importing and using maps made with TileD, but I don't know if it supports isometric maps.


As an alternative, you can use a PNG of the photoshop picture as a parallax (search for tutorials on parallax mapping to learn how that can be done), but again this is mostly used for non-isometric maps. And it will require you to use regular grid-passability on the map even if it is isometric in view.

DO you know the name of this plugin? 


Flattening the map to just an image is probably a no go since each room has a bit of stuff in it that should be negotiated around.  I briefly looked at the  parallax stuff and if I put say a crate on another level  so that it is say in front of the character what happens when he/she walks around the crate and is in front of the crate?

IF you are referring  to the  TilelD plugin no it doesn't appear to work in iso.

So yesterday Dad took me to Volcano Bay, and it was almost ruined by a thunderstorm... then it passed by and the lightning warning got lifted, leading to an awesome time sliding and swimming. Hopefully we get to go to the arcade tonight. The one we're planning on has a restaurant built in with AWESOME food. Not to mention how big the arcade itself is!

Maybe I'll actually try making a retro pack. Already have the shark fin made so why not xD
Hey everyone, for everybody following along with my RPG Maker MZ streams: There will unfortunately not be a stream tonight. There is a big exciting event that will go live next week that has been taking all my time, so look forward to that!
Took a small break by playing VR. Latest update of these glasses unfortunately caused a little of trouble but it can be fixed with a manual operation.

Until You Fall is freaking awesome.
