Remapped the town in Adalyn, here's a screen.
I'm digging the new hi-res look overall, Ocean.

I will say though, on first impressions at least (to be fair it probably looks fine after a few minutes of play) I find the lines of the roofs to be a little stark and not so pretty, even if they're higher-res and accurate depictions. It feels like there needs to be something to break up all those parallel lines.

I'd say it's probably too pretty for what it needs to be used for (slums), so maybe I'll add some variety by having cracks in it and things like that! Most other roofs outside of the slums are red tiled ones.

@Allen: Thanks once again I feel that it really made the menu looks nice, as you see the before. :) Whats the news on RC?

Hey, no problem. I have decided to modify mine so that it doesn't look so Final Fantasy IX-ish.



I'm currently working on some mini cutscenes where you will need to move your character around quickly.

I think the plants clash with the grass; they're too vivid, while the grass has a less saturated color.

Also, is that a blond hooker?

A screen from an earlier project, called "Source of all evil". It's from
february 2011.

This is from my current project "Uroboros", guess the most of you recognize the add.
A little tribut for my favourite Sitcom, which is very unknown in Germany... what a pity...

@Allen Hunter:
Very very nice! Hope we'll get something to play in near future. :)

I wanted it to stand out more, makes the game a bit more colorful.

And yes, yes she is. There will be all kinds of people once I get around to spriting them all. A lot of the NPCs are actually going to be quite poor.
Does she have a heart of gold? :P

I think that this looks great. Also this sprite style is amazing. (Because it renders boobs with enough pixels for them to matter.) Seriously though, you have really, really improved a lot in the past five or six years and I ain't even saying you were bad to begin with.

This looks pretty amazing.

Battle Retry Script, eh? Neato! I might want to look into one of those for a few of my projects. How tough was it to modify, and what did you modify about it?



These battle portraits look nice. While I'm sure it's a coincidence, the one on the bottom looks a lot like a slightly recolored version of one of my characters although I could add "gender-flipped" to recolored.

Wow, okay I went back a page and there's even more stuff to praise. God damn we gots some good shit on these last two pages.

I'm just gonna sneak in here and...yeah, dump some stuff. Feedback is much appreciated ;-;

Note: These are all done with the default Ace RTP on PURPOSE (actually it was the requirement), therefore they have no customs (It's for a map donation pack of sorts)

This is Dermod's Capital, Tramian:
(My main project's location, ported to ace. I had to do away with the market at the fountain to follow a strict RTP only style, which is why it looks kinda empty now.)

This is the lake town of Lachlan
(A sword goes into the altar to the left, and the church is the oldest building and holds a bell, which is kinda important)
http://rpgmaker.net/media/content/users/20322/locker/Lachlan.png

A vampire-ruled town in Rumen
(Vampires here are pretty much just old snooty music lovers, the big building is a music school)
http://rpgmaker.net/media/content/users/20322/locker/Rumen.png

The hunter's village of Calren
(The bare area at the bottom right is an archery training area of sorts. I modified one of the RTP sample maps for this one (basic structure))
http://rpgmaker.net/media/content/users/20322/locker/Calren.png






These look fucking awesome. I sure wouldn't mind being donated these maps. : )



I really, really like the way the "coastline/cliff edge" looks in this map. Very fluid.

Well, more like I added to it, and fixed minor things(that were probably my fault in the first place.)
I added a Checkpoint system, in which the MAP ID, MAP X, and MAP Y you are transferred to are controlled by variables. Here it is:
#===============================================================
# ● ◦ Battle Retry ◦ □ With an added Checkpoint System by Adon237
# * Enable player to retry the battle after losing *
# ** Note: Read the setup part before using this script **
#--------------------------------------------------------------

# □ Place this script and setup in the setup part.

#=================================================================
# ALL ABOUT >>> THE CHECKPOINT SYSTEM
#=================================================================
=begin
Checkpoints are areas a player can decide to return to by selecting the
'Return to Last Checkpoint' option in the game over screen. Checkpoints can be handled
by events. You will need to set the variable you chose for "LASTCHECKPOINT_VAR" to the map
ID the player is currently on, "CHECKX" to the current X, "CHECKY" to the current Y.
For example, if you have 'save points' you would set so each time they use the savepoint,
the variable for "LASTCHECKPOINT_VAR" to the current MAP ID. Then the variable for
"CHECKX" to the player's current X position, and "CHECKY", to the player's current
Y position. Then next time they "GAME OVER", if they select the "RETURN TO LAST CHECKPOINT"
option, they will be transferred to that save point.

Ditch the bizarre lighting and it'll be solid. All it does is detract from a good map. =|
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

Lots of NPCs! Even on the rooftops! I like the amount of life. I'm not sure the lighting makes logical sense, but it doesn't bother me. I do think the buildings are kinda crazy small, the ones on the lower left especially are the size of a small tool shed, but combined with the VX RTP charsets they actually give the entire town a cute chibi look.

I like the lighting, actually.

And I'm immediately curious why those two are on the roofs.

Kinda inspired from Secret of mana 2-god beast dangaard for this boss scenario
