I am asking nicely for quicksand animated tiles that I can place on a desert based map and animates sucking the sand alike falling off a mountain while testing the game or their is a option to make the default sand into quicksand by doing events and scripting?

Thanks, I don't mean these for walking into. I actually mean quicksand tiles like Final Fantasy chimney smoke animated tiles. Quicksand like in Final Fantasy VIII D District Prison, background animated tiles, not like doors.

Have you tried recoloring the whirlpool tile to match the sand tiles?

Not exactly, that either. But good idea. I really really mean, is that I like a tile for each square that the sand falls downwards (like a avalanche) as I intend to put it in a map with a big hole in the centre as if the sand sucked the desert and leaving a black gap within the area unveiling a secret, pretty much a event effect idea.

Well, you could also try recoloring the animated water tiles, too, if you need a larger area than a single tile.

He means something like this

But for VX Ace. 

These kind of edits are not easy to make in the VX/Ace RTP graphics. Best you can do is to re-color some autotiles and apply a texture with photoshop... or try to edit the autotile i have posted.

RMMV
I don't think the water would help. It sounds like he wants it animated so that it opens onto a black space/void that the sand is being sucked in. At least, that's what I understand.

A water tile could make a quicksand texture but if you wanted it to flow in only one direction per tile that's a lot more complex. You'd need multiple water tiles to pull it off and a good understanding of the way those tiles work paired with a lot of shift clicking to map it. Events are probably the way to go with this one.


What tiles are you using? Ace's RTP?

I am using the basic sample VX Ace tiles that are whirlpools and water.

I have no concept what this can possibly mean.


"animates sucking the sand alike falling off a mountain"


***********************edit**********************


I re-read your avalanche concept into darkness. You probably want to be more specific. Is it a hole in the ground? How big? Is it a cliff? Which way does it face? How wide?


Devil's in the details.


" put it in a map with a big hole in the centre as if the sand sucked the desert and leaving a black gap "


This makes me think you want edge animation all around, so you should say how big, etc. Also you should show which tiles you want to lead up to the hole (show a screenshot)


Also, perhaps a parallax background (like a fog) of sand, constantly moving down, is really what you need.

While was working on one of the monsters that will appear in my horor game I may have made harold a Lovecraftian monster. (I used his head to keep things aligned.)
Finally got my website fixed and the security sorted so it's been a productive day. Can I go to sleep now? I mean... I don't need to work right?
It's always a good idea to refresh yourself on what your plugins do. I'm working on a map with opening walls, and I was about to tear my hair out over how much image editing and hand-constructing of autotiles I'd have to do, when I looked again and saw @Shaz 's Tile Changer could copy areas from another map.
"sorry it took me so long to respond" - can we please agree not to say that anymore unless it actually took a long time?! (Like 36hrs at least) I mean, I'm running out of funny responses here xD
Ugh... 4:53AM over here and I can't sleep so why not just game make.
