Well it's a bit different than that. I thought up a decent idea for an RPG and started working on it immediately. My problem is I tend to make the game as I go along. For example, I'll finish one map, then do the story and monster setups etc. for that particular area. Now, I've heard this is a very bad habit when it comes to RPG Maker, and I often read that the best thing to do is to map the whole thing first, after coming up with characters and a story. But the problem is, I suck at mapping! Especially in relation with the story and overall progression.
I really hate to ask this as I know that the usual response is "use Google motherf***er," but I'd rather get advice from people I can actually trust. Namely, you lot here on this very forum. Charming, I know. Anyway, all I need right now is a lot of mapping advice. Even if one was to point me in the right direction I would be extremely grateful.
Also (and I know this is another use Google question, but the same notion of trust applies), I'm using VX now, and the square tilesets are HORRIBLE! Seriously, I'm in desperate need of more believable tilesets, so any help on this front would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys, and I hope I don't sound like too much of an arsehole with this topic.
