 Maps and screenshots thread
Last one before I post the complete town map, and the even bigger interconnected world map in the main AE thread. We have a casino tucked away between two waterfalls and its adjacent pump house. A skyscraper with penthouses and balconies. the three point building is another shopping center. There's some more construction, and a few other houses all at the top of the riverbed.

A bit cleaner cavern map...

So, as you may or may not know, due to some clever debating and goading, I started a mapping and game project using MV again, and tried different styles for a cavern-like environment. While some would simply use Galv's layers and call it a day, as I showed with one of my previous entries, I decided to try to convert what would have been doodads to the traditional tilemap decorating. 

I think I'm finally satisfied with how the floorplan comes together, with the architecture for the maps being relecated to only two pages of the TIleset, B and C respectively. This will free me to use either doodads or even the A1-A5 for floor decals, and C and D for extra bits, allowing me to focus on Yanfly's Grid Free Doodads for specific touches, and STILL use Galv's Layers if I want to try for a shadowing effect over the map as a whole. Floor texturing is simply a repeating parallax background with a blank tile for passability and a region tag for blocking and impassability. 

The map was created in PRG Maker MV.

Tile size: 48
Extra Tools used: Photoshop for Tileset crafting

Extra plugins planned: Yanfly's Grid Free Doodads, Galv's Layers

The pink one? I should, yes.

The castle has an interior as well, which is how you get onto the balcony.

The tileset is a mix of edited RTP, some magic tiles by metsss and BIT/O as well as some stuff from Celianna's Ancient Dungeons. Most notably; the windows.

This is just another screenshot of a game that may never be finished, but I wanna share it just in case I could make something out of it. Happy with a sweat At least, it could serve me as a valuable learning experience of sorts. Laughing

I like the contrast of colors, the dark of this room with the lava and apparent amber crystals.

I do feel that some work is needed, but I will not go into details unless asked. I think we BOTH know why; Laughing + Tongue sticking out

Are any of the orange pieces (lava, molten steel, crystals) animated?

EDIT: By the way, I made the wall behind the lava portal one tile taller than on the previous screenshot.

Version 5 of my latest map!

The lava is the default autotile indeed.
Molten steel!? Huh? You mean the lamps or torches? Or the molten edges?
So far all of the gems are static because they're just normal tiles. Laughing
I didn't use any event to animate those reddish gems, but Thinking I could try that later on...
Concerning those other improvements, I prefer to get a PM just in case I messed terribly with something very specific. Happy with a sweat

Done animating the reddish gems! Two Thumbs Up!
Yes, the portal is animated because I used the lava autotile and then covered it with modified tilesets of that very same eerie portal. It feels good to be tricksy here. Laughing

I haven't done much lately due to lack of time and motivation, just some cave stuff.
