I have a problem:
I have found this texture that I want in my game, but, should I use it as it comes, or make it into a drawing with a painting software and not just a raw photo so it fits better? what do you think? (I'm a noob)

it depends on how and where you want to use it.
because "texture" is the wrong name in any case, 2D-based games use other nomenclature than 3D-based ones.

I'll use it as a tile for mapping.

doesn't work that way, it is completely unusable as a photo and would need massive rework into several different tiles as a drawing.

for example, a single tile is 48x48 pixel. you can't reduce that picture to that size, and even then it doesn't work that way on maps.

I suggest you test how to do a similar building with the default tiles. that will show you that you'll need stone tile structures for a background as a windowless wall, then place the different windows and doors as decorative tiles above that wall.
which will show you how to make the different parts you need to follow that photo's structure.

only after that you can start to draw something usable in an image program.

It would make a nice battle back or a background parallax.

Just spent $174 on Shining the Holy Ark on the Saturn. Good lord.
My brain when designing quests:
There is piano, it needs help --> The organ (yes organ now) is missing a component! --> Where the heck am I supposed to put this missing piece!??! --> Add an entire new mini dungeon specifically created to house this new piece. --> Connect this brand new mini dungeon to an already designed dungeon with background information about the town it's found it.

Me: :LZYhuh:
Rising of the Shield Hero!
Sheesh, Guys, don't think you can throw easy prices like $25/$50 on potions/ethers then have monsters pay you $75 for killing them (never understood that concept btw lol) and think it'll all work out!!! Just realized my prcies vs payout left my players unable to get decent stuff without some serious farming from the start, i'm about to call H&R Block to help my MC get his stimulus check just to buy new armor :LZSlol:
