Would it be possible to download entire maps?

I always just find individual tiles... so, just to confirm, that isn't possible? Besides the default ones, that is...

I already suggested you do the tutorials and the help file to learn about the engine, because the engine is too much to "learn by doing".
That way you also might have learned about the sample maps included in the program...

There's the question you're asking and the question I think you want.

Yes, the map is stored in a file, you could download an entire map.

No, you generally do not find maps available to download. Maps are a huge part of what actually makes your game - what would be the point of you saying you made a game if your towns or dungeons or whatever are the same as someone else's?

Many tilesets that you purchase will include more sample maps so that you can see how to use the various pieces of that tileset well.

Aside from that, you're talking about hiring other people to draw your maps for you.

Well, there was the ARUM project back then where you had maps to download. I'm not sure if it's still going. I also tried starting a free map resource but then I got too busy to manage it.

I'm gonna put my project on pause for a tiny bit so I can explore the engine outside of it... Winging it can only get you so far LMFAO
Have seen some of my favorite people here posting and helping others with questions today -- love to see it!
Haven't been on here actively in awhile, project is going strong my biggest issue is the STORY, i'm refining the plot and learning so much i decided to take a writers class to improve even more but the programming and functionality of the game is stepping up nicely!
Hi everyone! Here's what I'm working on today! It's one of the dorms on campus. I know I said I wouldn't use assets but I reused a few things from the cafeteria hehe.

I added a little squish effect when characters change direction to try and make things a bit more lively. Though it's a bit hard to see on the fast moving guys.
