Church Inner Tutorial for Beginners
This tutorial is for those who just started with RPG Maker XP. For me, the mapping is extremly importent for a game, together with a good story and gameplay. To make good Maps, you need to make the as realistic is possibly.
Here, I will explain how to map a inner part of a Church.Church Interior
Map Size: 23X19Step A Nun Mansion.
First of all, begin with the walls. The church tileset is interesting, since it has a different type of wall.
With this wall, you can map the rooms like you can't do with other mapping types.
See how close I can put the rooms near eachother.
That's because I can have the wall on the first layer. It will now be easier to put out things. The windows can also be on the first layer, since there's not white layer bugging you.
Time to put out carpets and windows.
As you can see, I'm only able to have one window. If I put it somewhere else on the map, it will not look natural, because who's stupid to put a window in the middle of the room?
Use the lighter part of the floor, to make it look like the sun is shining inside.
Now, it's time to put out some furniture's. Put these out on the second layer.
And put paintings, shelfs and other kind of stuff on the third.
Obs! Pointing out!
If you have the edges of the tables on the third layer, you can put chairs under the edges.
Other from that, always have tables on the second layer. Then, you can put things on the tables with the third layer.
Time to put out some nuns!
Advice: If you don't want to get any critism for using to many of the same characters, I give you the advice to open the nun character in either Paint, GIMP or photoshop, and recolour it, and save at a new file. It's not realistic if 10 persons looks like eachother ;DStep B: Chamber
Map Size: 21X15
OK, start with the walls. Remember, first layer.
Put out the windows and the light effects. Remember, first layer.
And the carpet
And since it's a chamber, put the benches after eachother. Then, it will look like a real church
. After you have done that, put out the big thing in front of them, and after that, the piano( Okay, isn't a piano
) but...remember...make the map, so it fits in
. As you can see, I have nowhere t put it out.
Time to put the rest out. Plants, paintings, nuns and one old priest in the middle, and some villagers praying to their god.
And it's done. Make sure to make things random. The villagers needs to be random! It just look wrong if two people are standing near eachother, and they look the same. <_<
I hope this will help you with the mapping.
