Basically from my understanding BCj it's because legally they can't. They have edited rtp in the tiles, which while people are allowed to edit and distribute for free and commercial use, they aren't allowed to sell their edited tiles.

They may have sold them before, but as now they are known to be or have some rtp edits they cannot sell them without risking consequences and legal action being taken against them.

The only way for them to be allowed to sell them again, is if they get permission, aka strike some kind of deal I guess, because it sounds like they've gotten in trouble already because they sold the license. Another way would be for them to remove every single tile and only sell what they made from scratch, but that would require them a) to remember where exactly they used the rtp, and b) Most likely get permission and a clearance because of the past trouble it caused. Which they may or may not be able to get, I'm not entirely sure, however even then we wouldn't exactly know which tiles would remain available.

Furthermore, they cannot just make them free for commercial use because they previously charged money for the license, I don't know the details but to do this they would have to refund all the purchases of the license when it was available, if they haven't already. Again they would have to receive clearance I suppose and, as I said I don't know the details but the tiles could essentially be "black listed" for commercial use because of the legal issues.

Is it allowed to resize and edit them into a tileset for mv and post those I will of course give you credit I just want people to be easily be able to use steampunk tiles for mv without having them have to either make their own or find bits and pieces for mv because mv is a lot more popular

@UnknownJones : No. These tiles use edits of VX, so in order for anyone to use them in MV they have to also own VX and VXace as well. So for that reason no one can edit them for MV and post them for others to have, you'll have to edit them yourself AND own VX and VXAce to legally use them.

Note also they cannot be used commercially anymore either, for the same reason. So if your game is commercial you should look elsewhere, as for legal reasons no commercial license is available for these tiles anymore.

Sorry, folks, I missed the conversation about why we stopped offering commercial licenses.

It was nothing nefarious. We didn't get into any kind of trouble, nor were we asked to stop selling it.

We just, personally, felt it was best and easiest to have the pack for non-commercial use only. At that point, it had been several months since anyone went through with the license payment, but we still had people messaging us and asking that we format the tiles for use in VX-Ace (and later MV) first or requesting that we offer continued support and updates for the tiles like we do for RMW store products. Additionally, any income we made from selling the licenses needed to be declared for taxes - which might complicate things if we reach certain sale thresholds. It just wasn't worth the hassle for something that might sell a single license in 6+ months.

Instead of pulling the tiles entirely, we just decided to make them non-commercial. That way, the community still gets to enjoy the content, but we don't have to worry about the commercial aspect of it. :)

Question: How do I actually turn these into tilesets? I love them more than anything in the game, and I have a Steampunk-themed character, and want to make a Steampunk-themed game. These are too awesome to overlook.

@Evillione Use your cursor to right click over the image you want. Select the 'Save image as' option. Navigate to the folder where you want to store them. Save.

Hi everyone !
I'm having some issues to download those beautyful tiles. I wanted to use them to my own game but my system does not regognize them as .PNG files. So I can't use them in photoshop... Does anyone have the same problem ?

@Kusogakisama I just tried right-clicking and hitting 'save as...' on some of the tiles and they saved as a .png no problem. If you're doing that and photoshop's still not recognizing them, perhaps try opening them in a different art program, like gimp, and then re-save it as a .png.

Thx @hiddenone for the tips but it unfortunatly didn't work :/
I finally managed to download it properly by using microsoft EDGE instead of Mozzilla. I guess the navigator was the issue (Update ?). Might serve those who might encounter the same problem as me.
Thx again for this work. It's amazing !

EDIT : I'm located in France but i don't know if it has something to do with it

As a fellow RPG Maker, I must say the tiles your team made are really amazing, and seeing as you wish for the community to enjoy the content, I took upon myself the strenuous work of separating them into doodads for Parallax Mapping (no edits whatsoever). They're not finished yet (I'll try Algebra plugin before sorting the water tiles), and I'd like to know if I should continue the sorting or do you have some problem with that, which I would completely understand.
Should you comply with my request, I will figure how filesharing works and put a link ONLY here (talented people be credited!) so no one will have an excuse not to try these amazing tiles.
-Sincerely, a fan of yours

@AlexandreL Please note that this is an English Language site, so all public posts should be in English, and only in English. Please edit and translate your post (use google translate if you cannot manage to do it yourself) otherwise it will be deleted.

This might clear up whether you are suggesting that it is Lunarea's tiles which "are a good start" or whether it is your editing of them which is "a good start".

I ADAPT your tiling works as I have not missed many things and there is not a certain animation but I think it's a good start! here are the links where you can download my adaptation:

Hoping it makes you happy!
You did a great job adapting these tiles, AlexandreL! I'll have some spare time towards the end of the month, so I should be able to finish and share the doodad pack (It's kinda folder heavy, and I have some weird naming conventions). I hope the community puts it to good use :)

Oh my gosh. Thank you, Macy's! Thank you so much! You have made me very happy!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! What are you thankful for? I'm thankful that I no longer have PTSD, and that I get to enjoy a good meal with my mom and stepdad! It might not be the same as before COVID, but at least I still get to enjoy the holiday!


Made another map, this one even has a cool moving waterfall. I'll have an animated GIF later whenever I'm done adding stuff. :LZSwink:
