    At what pixel height and width does the Weapon_Sheet work? I plan to make custom SV_Battlers and want to know how the weapons will react to this.

    1. If using a custom sprite, but with each cell still being 64x64, at what height I need to make my char hand to be so the default weapon sheet works?
    2. If using custom sprite size, like each cell being 96x96, does the weapon appear at what pixel distance from the "floor"? So I can adjust the X and Y via plugin.
    3. If using custom sprite sizeS, like a human using 96x96 but a dwarf using 64x64, what I need to do for both to swing a sword without it hovering out of place for one or the other?

    Thank you!

    I'm a newbie haha, but


    can someone tell me what the arrows are for?


    I have redesigned the whole thing but the arrows arent in my text box in a question/answer or anything.


    I would like the arrow to show up next to the question as if it's choosing which one.


    But if its just highlighted instead, whats the point of the arrows?

    ! means they are drawn in line with the grid, not a few tiles up like characters.  For the image you're using, I think you'll want to use !


    Also, take a look at your image and see if you want to use ALL of the animations.  There are 4 rows there - if you only need 3 of them, you could put them into a single character sheet (3 columns x 4 rows, with $ at the start of the name) and not have to make such a big character sheet to fit the 4th column.  I suspect that one of the ring with a transparent background might not be as useful as the others, and I'm not sure what the difference is between the two with the iris opening/closing - if they're the same, one of those could definitely be discarded.


    Also, don't use MS Paint - it doesn't allow transparent backgrounds so you'll end up with white all around your image.  Paint.NET is a nice program that's simple to use - doesn't have all the complexity of GIMP/Photoshop.

    No.  $ means your character sheet only has one character on it and not 8.


    What you're asking about is more detailed than is meant to be in this topic (you are asking for help with a very specific character sheet).  I suggest sticking with the other topic that you created earlier, rather than having a conversation in two places.

    Before tackling autotiles myself, I wanted to see how the editor put them together, so I made a template for them.


    In case it can be of use to anyone, I made an A4 sheet of them. The templates may be useful on other sheets; I haven't checked them yet. The numbers allow you to see which squares the editor uses and when it uses them.


    The gray and the pinkish/purplish ones are ceiling autotiles, and the blue and green ones are wall autotiles.


    The upper left are only used in the tile selector and have no bearing on what the autotile actually looks like when you use it.


    A4 Template


    NOTE: I've removed the old version of the template from this post. The updated version can be found in my next post.

    @Dullstar: I suggest you read this http://blog.rpgmakerweb.com/tutorials/anatomy-of-an-autotile/


    and modify your template (more specifically your numbering) with that info.


    Because there is a better way to number the parts of an autotile if you know how it is used in the game.


    (MV uses the same structure, only 150% the size of the VX and VX Ace autotiles. that means 24 pixel where the tutorial says 16 pixels)

    I numbered it the way I did because the way they numbered it in that tutorial didn't make much sense to me. So I just decided I wanted to determine the information experimentally, hence the numbering system I used (logic: I'm just going to write a number on each tile and see which ones get used by the program).


    EDIT: I wasn't originally going to make the change but since I have nothing better to do I'll go ahead and make an updated version.


    EDIT2: Unnumbered version. Version numbered according to Anatomy of an Autotile tutorial under production.


    EDIT3: Final versions of templates (hopefully).


    There are three versions of the templates.


    One is unnumbered.


    One is numbered based on how I did it initially (although I renumbered it so the wall/ceiling autotiles would match, and I used a font instead of hand drawing the numbers).


    The last is numbered according to http://blog.rpgmakerweb.com/tutorials/anatomy-of-an-autotile/


    EDIT4: Reposting information from previous post so you don't have to scroll back for it.

    A few questions related to tile sets, after a night of reading the help file. Hopefully someone can clarify things a bit.


    Are the only time that can animate the "water" tiles in A1?


    What significance is there to the various types of water tiles, other than boat/ship passability? Does it always assume A1 is entirely water tiles?


    Is the .txt with the sample tilesets required by the editor, or just a convenience?


    And lastly, if I were to make a water tile passable and set it as a 'bush' in the editor, would it hide the character's lower half with a transparent bit?

    Only A1 can contain animated tiles, but they do not need to be water tiles (for example there are lava tiles inside)


    The boat/ship passability is fixed to the A1 tiles, but if you don't use a boat or ship on a map then nothing prevents you from using them for other effects.


    You need different water variants to fit them to different land types


    and the txt file only sets the names displayed for the tiles in the bottom line of the editor, it is completely ignored by the game itself


    and your last question: yes, that will happen. Additionally, a passable watertile can no longer hold a ship or boat (they have inverted the passability, if a water is shallow enough for an actor to go there, it is too shallow for a vehicle to move.

    Enemies don't need a template, they're single pictures of any size.

    Only when you use plugins to change that you'll have to check for a template, and then that depends on the plugin used and such a question can't be answered in general
