I'm making a desert dungeon that's using the sand tile from the exterior tileset. I know the RTP comes with a water (A1) tile for the sand, but it looks more like beach water and not as dungeonish as I'm going for.

I'd like for the dungeon type of water (the kind you see in like the brown and grey cave water tiles on the dungeon A1 sheet) to be added onto the sand tile, if possible. Many thanks in advance!

You might be able to do it with this:
http://www.ezmash.net/Dev/RPGMaker/VXAce/RMXPAceConverter.zip

Unzip and run the exe.
Open the A1 and A2 sheets on the left, and the new A1 sheet on the right.
Use the sand tile from the A2 sheet on the left to fill in a whole block of water tiles (6 columns x 3 rows) on the sheet on the right.
Select the cave ground tile from the A2 sheet on the left as the "background" tile, then all the cave water tiles, then copy them to the sheet on the right, using the 'remove background' option (so it only copies the water, onto the sand tiles).

That sounds really confusing - hopefully if you give it a go, it'll be easier than it sounds.

I do not know what sand tile you are using but maybe this helps?
I just added the dungeon water tile to the outside a1 tileset.

it blends pretty well without the more complex edit, I think.

ahh i'm using the more yellow desert sand, the browner dirt tile does blend well with it, but i don't think the regular one does

Who would think putting a power button on a side of a laptop is a good thing? You want to move the laptop and you suddenly press the button.
The second draft of my script is almost done, and I don't think I'm going to write a third draft. I'll make changes to dialogue here and there, but I'm happy with the series of events the way they are.
How you feel about font and dialogue box changing for every main character while the minor cast and regular npc get their own styles? Too much?
Just found an obviously custom effect (i.e. edited by me) in my resources>sounds folder called "rip jaw off". Dear Lord what is wrong with me as a person that at some point I needed a sound *specifically* for THAT??
(...rhetorical question.)
