I've been using RPG Maker XP for a couple of days now, mostly getting the basics down and making my own tiles to use in the game.
But I've hit a problem, I went and made a bunch of water tiles (left edge, right edge, top edge, bottom edge, middle) and then I realised that the water tiles that XP comes with do the edges and everything just using one tile! A bit slow of me, I know.
What I'd like to know is, is it possible to make a tileset that does the same thing? And if so, how?
(If it's blindingly obvious, forgive me!)
I hope that makes sense!

It's called an Autotile, which is basically one little fixed tileset. You can go into the Resources and go to "Autotiles", export it and edit it. Alternatively you can just use a search engine to look for "RMXP Autotiles" or whatever else.

Thanks, that's just what I needed to know!
I'll see if I can get it working now, thanks again!

Autotiles can get pretty complicated if you're making them from scratch so you might want to check here
to see how they really work.

Thanks for that, Knot, it'll be very helpful!
It works! Thanks Lurvid and Knot! I'll be able to happily autotile away now
