Content:

Enough graphics to make a full game world. Tileset themes include:

  • Overworld
  • Exterior (Town and Castle)
  • Interior (Homes, Shops, etc)
  • Dungeon (Caves, Mines, Volcano)
  • Ship

FAQ:

  • Q: Are these tiles compatible with my other asset packs (Time Fantasy/Elements)?

Sure. They use the same 16x16 tilebase.

Style-wise, they fall somewhere in between Time Fantasy and the upcoming Elements tiles (in fact, I'll probably re-use some object tiles here and there to fill out the set, so like a random TF chair tile or something might find its way into the public domain lol). 

The OpenRTP tiles should look good when mixed with either style-- and hopefully other styles by other people!!-- though note that the colors would need to be tweaked to match Time Fantasy.

  • Q: Will these OpenRTP tiles be released in RMMV/MZ formats?

No. Because they're released as completely free, you are welcome to edit and re-organize them to whatever works for you.

These tiles are arranged in the "chipset" format used by RM2K/3 and EasyRPG. They're designed specifically to correspond with and overwrite the original RM2K/3 RTP tilesets.

  • Q: Does a big open-source release compete against your own asset business?

Uh... I hope not! 😨 

I think that I'm in a unique position to create a set like this, and release it for free, specifically because I have the backing and support of my patrons. If you like this release, please consider signing up for more content.

Thank you!


About:

These tilesets were created as my contribution to the EasyRPG OpenRTP project.

These sets contain entirely original artwork that is arranged in the same way as the classic RPGMaker2K/3 RTP chipsets. They correspond with the original sets and can replace them as a free alternative to the RTP.

Games preservation is an important topic these days, and especially for me, where RM2K/3 games were hugely influential on me and the online culture I came up in. EasyRPG makes playing those games possible on modern systems, so it's an important tool for preservation. It goes in the other direction too, enabling modern releases so that people can use the RM2K/3 engines to make games in 2022 and beyond.


On a personal note, I'm really proud of this little project. I spent all my middle school and teenage years playing with RM2K/3, and there's something really fulfilling about recreating the entire RTP tiles. Sure, I've made *more* than this already with Time Fantasy... but this seems like I've accomplished something that I wanted to do my whole life.

I'm happy to release these sets as a way to give back to the hobby that has given me so much.

Do these work on Unity? and are the tiles separate? Thanks, Great Work!

You're welcome to use them in Unity, but you might need to edit them to work. I'm not familiar with Unity, so it's up to you. good luck!

This is amazing, I admire your work! I can also notice a big improvement in your art with this asset. Great job! 👏

have you thought of submitting this OpenGameArt.org? we are always looking for good free-culture work there. many of us on the forums there have been watching the easrpg / openrtp project for a while, your contribution to it is a major boost for free-culture art in general.

Thank you!

Open Game Art is cool, and these were released to the public domain so anybody can use them, so it's all good for users of OpenGameArt regardless of where they download them from. Right now I'm only hosting them here because it connects to my main store page, and at the end of the day we've all got bills to pay. I wish it didn't be like that, but it do...

This is gonna be perfect for my first project. Thank you very much! I am so glad I found you  :D

Interesting.  My favorites of your work though... the characters, animals, and monsters!  :)  They probably do take a lot of time to do, but there's so few people actually doing them, especially at the quality you are.


Good luck!
