I see a lot people having struggle with that, so here is a quick and easy solution I wanted to share.

Step 1:

There is this tile in Dungeon_A2 - cut it out.

Step 2:

Duplicate it two times and merge the 3 layers.

Step 3:

Add your two terrains as seperate layers.

Step 4:

Add a white layer mask to the layer you want to be in the on the "outside".

Step 5:

Copy and paste the modified Dungeon_A2 tile on the the layer mask.

Step 6:

Merge the result and copy it on your A2-Sheet.

Step 7:
Be happy, you have smoother transistions between your terrains now, works for most "natural" terrain types.

wow - awesome!

I'm not sure about steps 4, 5 and 6. Does anyone know if Paint.net lets you use masks? Or would I have to install GIMP to do something like this?

I have not worked with paint.net so far, I tried at one point but it was missing to many options I need when creating resources. I just had a quick look and couldn't find any layer mask, so I would just recommend to do it in Gimp - it's really a matter of seconds there, especially if you copy the "finished" layer mask from Step 5 ;3

Could not for the life of me figure out how to implement the dual/triple techs in Touch the Stars in a player-friendly way. Was describing all the problems to my wife and just rubber-ducked a solution that should work brilliantly.
I think I'm going to make each equippable item in my fantasy RPG grant a skill while its worn (in addition to the character's learned skills). Equipped gear that might be weaker in stats can still be useful in certain situations if the skill they grant exploits a weakness or resists a strength in the monsters being fought. This could potentially open up lots of build strategies to play with for fun.

A lot of those cool RPGs allow players to import their own portraits.
Thus, we shall have that, too. :kaojoy:
Finally, deleted my Reddit account

What was the worst (most difficult) part of developing your game?
