This thread will be a home for a variety of XP graphics, made compatible for use in MZ and MV. It's taken me some time to come up with a process that gets results I'm fairly satisfied with, and even then, it's not all sunshine and rainbows. I didn't want to just post instructions on how to do it either, as that gets crazy complicated, especially when you get to a point on turning XP autotiles into MZ/MV autotiles.

That aside, this will not be all posted all at once. There will be updates to it over time, in no small part so that I can respond to feedback and perhaps reorganize things as needed.

You must own RPG Maker XP to use these.

Credit: Meh, if you want to. It's not my stuff, I just beat it with a stick until it worked in modern makers.
Note: I have no real idea how to format without a GUI. Silly forums. I'll fix some stuff up later.
A bad example that is not trying to be a real map:
Map001.png
This is based on the 001-Grassland01 tileset. Added are some grass and forest autotiles. Any autotiles that have been formatted for MZ/MV are also included on A5 and B tilesets as the full version to be used the hard way.

There's not a whole lot to the Woods tileset (based on the 002-Woods01 tileset) - just a single B tileset. Used with the Grasslands set above, it would make for a good lighter-coloured forest.

The 003-Forest01 tileset is a darker variation of a forest, for a deeper or just different style of forest. There are a small number of A5 tiles to this one, and the remainder are on a single B tileset.

The 005-Beach01 tileset is a rocky and sandy beach with multiple related water tiles to make a lovely gradient of deepening water.

Not sure if these are allowed, but still something interesting. I would expand on this and add some original tiles (not recolors) before the mods lock it.

The terms for RTP assets allow for edits, sharing edits with other users of the software, and use of assets in other RPG Maker series software.

If, however, it should be found that I am incorrect and completely out of line, I can remove this thread myself.

Thank you for your concern.

@LunarFlareStudios -
Did you just try to mod a Mod?
Anyways, everything looks on the up-and up here and appropriate terms given.


EDIT:
I tend to be a smart aleck at times. Well, this wasn't the place for it. I apologized to LunarFlareStudios separately but there's you guys too. Sorry for the negativity the other day. :(

It sure is. But I'm taking a different approach, and getting different results. Use whichever you prefer.

:3 Variety is a good thing! And I really like that these edits of the XP tiles got the shadows right at least! The ones in the tiles in that link above need a bit of work. They really stand out and not in a terribly good way.

@taarna23 Cant wait to see more *cracks whip!* ... X3

@Bastrophian Shh! Back to your pixel-pushing! Oh, wait, you have a real job... unlike me... >.>

UPDATE! Added Woods and Forest tiles to the first post! Enjoy!

@Quexp My sincerest apologies! It won't happen again!
My apologies as well, it looks like I was in a smart aleck mood. I totally could have left out the first sentence of my reply. That was pretty snarky. Come to think of it, my whole comment is out of line. Sorry for being such a jerk. :(

I'll be more careful and will work on being more positive.

That's beautiful and seems really compatible if someone started a series from a maker to another! ^^

@Marquise* Thanks! I've actually done some edits for a project of my own that correct the shadows and brighten the colours so they work with MZ tiles, and they seem to actually do quite well for themselves. I will likely have a brighter colours version here as well, at some point.

I've added the Beach tileset to the mix! I've skipped the Mountain set for now, as they have some waterfalls I'm still figuring out the best way to reimplement.

I've also edited existing A1 and A2 autotiles so they look a little bit better when used.

I'm also working on a small plugin to allow the use of 4-frame water autotiles to make full use of the XP tiles, and am also working on a brightened up version of the XP tiles that should work decently alongside the MZ tiles.

Interesting week. Lots of stress and anxiety especially on Tuesday but still got thru it. How is everyone doing?
I was pleased with how the little ... whatever those square bits like upside-down turrets on the skirt are? I like how they turned out. Here's a little ranger/bandit/archery enthusiast to model it:

I'm calling her Robin because obviously.
Just downloaded the demo and boy howdy are my arms tired (???) :kaohi:
I just watched a trailer for the upcoming 2021 JRPG Fantasian. They demonstrated an interesting mechanic where random encounters can be sent to a stockpile instead of fighting them right away, which can be emptied in a single battle string at the player's choice of timing.
