I don't know why the icons are so different compared to the past RPG Maker's, neither i haven't really heard of a RPG who has abstract icons like these...
So you don't know persona 3-4, or older final fantasy remakes for gba...

Just saying...

As far as I understand it it's standard on mobiles to use vector-based icons because otherwise they're difficult to identify on small screens
That is of course great but... the idea of using vector icons is that they are... well, vectors, using a rasterized vector (in other words, a bitmap made from the vectors) isn't really much better than using hand crafted bitmaps.

Still yes, they are just monotonic and really simple with not much detail, and you have completely the truth than they are using that style probably because mobile phones need clean sprites to work on small resolutions.

For workflow purposes it's easier to craft vector art cleanly then it is to hand paint it that way.

So working with vectors is a lot better.

I can attest to this - this is how I do icons at work for use within a Windows application.

Which video :o ?
There was a deleted video just before the Shaz plugin video. It's cleaned up now, but it will remain one of the great mysteries of our age along with the location of Jimmy Hoffa's body, and where the missing socks go from the washer ;)

lol - I was wondering how on earth Archeia got a hold of a video with my desktop background! I've yet to watch the video, but I'm pretty sure mine will be vastly different :D

Will there be Preorder Badges or whatever for MV as there are for Ace?

That character creator video only makes me pine even more for an MV specific Wild West update in the future.

That generator looks fantastic! I wonder if we will be able to add our own parts to it (i.e: ears, mouth, glasses etc).

I'd be absolutely shocked if we weren't. In fact, I think adding parts to it will be the best way to make new and varied characters. It seems like with a bit of effort you'll be able to do all kinds of stuff easily like make the same characters in different gear sets and stuff with this generator. It looks great.

I just wish the generator had some extra parts that came from the non-hero sprites.

Spending the day reworking my maps, especially the first "biome". This time it's not even in the dark. :LZSwink:
Activity on the forums has increased lately, probably because of people staying home. The amount of work for moderators has increased lol.
At this point I've gotten so tired of April Fools on the internet that last year I just refused to even post anything on the RMW Social Media on April Fools in protest. Considering doing it again.
I posted a funny gag reel of Drifty's video's here, but realized it was probably too riskay, so I deleted it, oops, lol.
Another room (actually other half of previous room)
