Okay, so with my purchase of MZ I stumbled upon this parallax (which is also the reference here):

CloudShadow_mvt.png
And then I decided to use this parallax in MV in conjunction with VE_FogAndOverlay.

It works perfectly well, but I found that the cloud pattern was a little too repetitive.
(Looking at the picture, there are 4 clouds total in there)

So my request is this; can someone make or point me towards a similar parallax with more different clouds?

I would like the size of the individual clouds to stay roughly the same, but with a bigger overall picture to fit more clouds in. (And obviously it has to be able to scroll seamlessly, just like in the reference)

if you can use 1 image or more images, why not duplicate that one, mirror it,
copy paste for more clouds, reduce in size, and use that as reference for another
layer of clouds?

you can also copy past a cloud, mirror it and add it or something more dynamic?

Have you considered Mog's Weather EX plugin? It will randomize the clouds far better plus it uses a much smaller image so it's far more RAM efficient. Also it's super easy to make clouds, just open up an art program (I like Krita since it's free and like Photoshop), select a fluffy looking brush, set the opacity to sub 50% and blotch the page a few times. Boom, clouds! :LZSwink:

To composers out there, what are atleast 4 instruments overall I need to have to make my music not feeling empty? I'm here stuck trying to make my own battle music but it kinda sounds... Not intense?
My computer broke yesterday, so no RPG maker for at least a week until I can get it repaired. :(
Just wanted to share how my game won 1st place in a game jam for itch.io. Everyone else used Unreal, Unity, GMS2, Godot, etc but I used RPG Maker 2003 :guffaw: It just shows that you can create a good game and it doesn't matter which engine you use
Working on cutscenes~

if your game is the first (or ONLY) in a series and still has a colon in its title, you are a bad person and I hate you...... jk.
