Using RPG Maker to astablish rooms and building landscapes
« on: January 10, 2017, 04:58:30 AM »
i always did this, i always thought of the room or building and eventually it comes and sticks, then i take it into RPG maker and make the room or building, for example this is the apartment of the main characters of my Series, "Royal"
Spoiler
... of coarse i have done edits since this image, this was done on March 5th 2015 and by edits i mean i think about it and change things around like make the rooms smaller and switch around the bathroom but i still use this map as the general concept

hought i would give this advice, may not be the best advice but i find it works

Nothing wrong with using tools to help visuals the space of a scene depicted in Stories. In fact, back in high school I would use Legos to help me visualize me scenes as my imagination wasn't strong enough to keep the image in mind for long period and eventual forget how'd it look like in the first place. :thumbsup:

How good is RPG maker by the way? I've been interested in the program, but I've never consider buy it as I don't know much about limits. :hmm:

thats a nice idea. i would probably use sketchup to plan my rooms because thats what im used to, but shows that there are a lot of ways to do the same sort of thing, someone who uses the program would certainly find this a helpful tip :)

+1 for sketchup. At times I just use the rendered images as base and draw over it to make it look painted, I always find free to use resources for these tho. A big time saver when you need to draw the same settings over and over again.

Why not just copy directly to clip studio? I export solid color and lineart directly to my drawing programs.

sort of a general warning: watchout for program crashes with any program you are using and make sure to save your work regularly. i had sketchup crash on me the other day and lost about half an hour of work. could have been worse but still a learning experience :(

especially when you work with complex designs or large layouts there is a higher risk of a crash or memory problem :(

it would be nice if we didnt have to keep moving our files from one program to the next and just do it all in one......would probably be an expensive program :P

my friend has RPG maker and he makes really complex stuff. he hasnt ever mentioned that it crashes though. cant hurt to be careful.

RPG maker isn't free, but there are free alternatives like Eclipse Origins. If you like legoes then I would recommend Lego Digital Designer. I've used it a few times for these kinds of tasks.
