hello, sorry if this is a silly question. can this be used for commercial projects?
Pixel Myth: Germania
A downloadable asset pack for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
This is the first in an intended series of painstakingly detailed pixel graphic packs. Build a classic fairy tale setting inspired by Germanic locations. Although originally optimized for use in RPG Maker VX Ace, this set is suitable for use in many engines and many game genres.
- Tile sheets with elements to create exterior, interior and dungeon locations.
- Decorative title screen surround.
- Custom window skin in both an RPG Maker VX Ace and XP setup.
- Extra, non-tile based images for people not afraid to do a little editing, like slanted walls, bay windows, and a large water animation.
- Animated event pieces including doors, vehicles, chests, and more.
- Tile arrangements optimized for use in RPG Maker VX Ace with extras for use in XP or other tile based engines.
- Exclusive Pixel Font.
- A BGM track by Jeremiah George.
In order to download this asset pack you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $29.99 USD. You will get access to the following files:

is there a way to use this for rpg maker mv?
Yes, but it's not a simple yes due to MV's tiles being 50% larger than Ace's, so things don't multiply evenly. The first way is to use some sort of workaround to get 32x32 tiles working in MV, like mapping in TileD and using the plugin for it. The second way would be to upscale the tiles, losing the pixel art look. If you get the right upscaler it'll still look nice like that. Technically you can upscale it and keep it unblended, with the pixels still crisp, but the result will look wavy with some places looking too chunky and others looking too thin. I do not recommend it.
I do have yanfly's full plug-in library is there one that'll work for that?
I'm only loosely familiar with Yanfly's work, but I think the only one that would be helpful would be the doodads plugin. It's only for placing objects, though, it won't help with the autotiles. I'm fairly certain it works together with the TileD plugin though, which is free. It might be easier in MZ, with the mapping plugin Hudell's been working on, but I don't currently own MZ so I haven't tried it.
Good day! The Steam-version has the same content and the same license?
No, they're close but not the same. The Steam version is has an RPG Maker only license since it's being sold through them and I've been having a hard time getting things updated when I add anything. Since I'm the one selling it here, the license is any engine and I can update it directly, plus I get a larger percentage of the profits. So if you're not sure which version to get, the one from here is better.
Hey so I'm actually using this pack for making D&D maps for my online games (Hope that's alright, personal use I guess). But anywho I love them a whole lot, I've had this pack for at least a year now I think. Just wondering - any updates on this pack or similar packs in the works? I can't wait for more!
Yep, that's fine, it sounds like a fun way to use it! I do have some things in the works, but my health had a series of emergency problems for a few years and I wasn't able to work on anything. Long story short, I think I'm on the mend now, but I can't promise anything. I also can't just release what I have because it's not currently in a usable state. I've got things like water tiles with no corners or ship parts without a prow, a mockup that hasn't been converted into tiles, and so on. If you follow me here, I'll post them for sale as soon as I finish them.
I'm glad you're getting better!! Sorry things haven't been great, but please take your time with things. I really appreciate all of the work you've done! Thank you!
Thanks! I'm really glad too, for obvious reasons. I hope I can get new packs out soon and that they're worth the wait.
Just a question - is there a way to contact you outside of the comments section? I just have a question or two regarding use of your art. Thank you!
At the moment this is the fastest and most surefire way. You can also email me at drakecastle at hotmail, but it's probably going to get stuck in the spam filter so I don't recommend it. Since I don't do commissions anymore, my need for private conversations has been almost non-existent, so I haven't bothered solving the problem. Sorry.
Wow this is beautiful your very talented pixel artist!
Hello. From pictures from your pack posted elsewhere, it seems some of the roof tiles is missing in this pack? The grey roof got all its tiles, but the roofs from this pictures only have 1 flat room tile?
I'm not quite sure what you're asking for. There's a larger variety for the thatched roof paired with the half timber walls, but I didn't want to put all that together for every single possible mix and match option, so the other roof options are very basic in comparison. If you're looking for the gables from this image it's in the extras folder. But please keep in mind that this particular image was put together to illustrate what could be made when the artwork is not used as tiles, so mild editing is required to recreate it.
Oh, the extras folder might be missing if you bought the pack elsewhere. I've tried multiple times to get it updated, but have been getting lots of silence from the people who can actually do anything about it. I have no control over it.
I'm very interested in this package, Could you tell me how many sprite sheets you have for this and also does it come with any Characters?
There are no character sprites in this pack, but I can point you to a lot of good places to find sprites that fit. I have made a sprite base specifically for this set that I made available for free with credit over at the official RPG Maker forums. I'm not happy with it, and I plan to make a revised version of it for sale with more poses and clothing options at some point. I can't say when that would be. There are 13 sheets of sprites with different number of objects/animations on each. The number of objects available depends a lot on how you count them, minimum of 40. Some of them may need to be rearranged on the sheet depending on how you want to use them. Does that answer your questions?
I have a question entirely unrelated to this tileset, but I don't see a way in itch.io to contact you about a general question. According to this page http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/a/rpg-maker-vxace-tileset/retro-halloween-tiles , you are the artist who made the Retro Halloween Tiles. I would love to buy that tileset from you, but I don't want to use it for rpgmaker. So my question is, If I buy the tileset from that page, does it come with the tiles in an open image format, like png. Alternatively, do you know if there is an easy way to extract the images and convert them to another image format, without using rpgmaker. If not, I would love it if you could release them here in a non-rpgmaker specific format, or if I could just purchase them directly from you. Whatever is easiest for you. Those tiles are amazing. Thanks.
Huh, that shouldn't be that hard to get a hold of me, I'll look into it. I am that artist, yes. If you buy any tileset from the official RPG Maker site you will only get a license to use it in RPG Maker. The format of the art doesn't matter, it's the license that you need. I do intend to sell the tiles here eventually but I'm doing a kind of update/remake thing to it that isn't done yet. I can sell you the tiles as is or you could wait for the updated set to come out and get both.
Oh. I hadn't even thought about how the RPG Maker tiles were licensed. I don't have tons of time for working on my project right now, so I'll wait to buy the tileset. Looking forward to seeing the updated set.
What is the license for this?
Pretty much use in your games, edit all you want, don't share the edits or my art with others.
Been a fan of yours for awhile, silently though. I love the lpc stuff you've done on opengameart, and I have used it a few times to make and print out dnd maps (I'm an immense geek... i use pixel art for all of the maps my buddies and I use.... We have pixelated tokens too...) I've got a little index card with links to your assets so I can be like "bros i didnt make this, i just put it together in tiled." when they alll lose their minds over stuff I use of yours.
This is simply beautiful. :) Wish I wasn't broke, because all the enjoyment you have given to my gaming table deserves a tip.
Hi, I've purchased and used this tileset in RPGmaker and have loved it. I have now moved on to developing in Unity and want to continue using this tileset. Can I purchase a licence to use it in unity? Thanks!
If you purchased it from here then you have licence to use it in Unity.
It shouldn't be missing anything, but this is the second comment I've gotten about that in a short period of time. I'll redo the zip file and upload it again just in case, but it may not be right away. I have a few files I've been meaning to add in but can't without talking to someone about it first. I have a hotmail email, drakecastle, you can contact me there.
Sorry, I don't use Gmail for business. Is there a problem with Hotmail? I can get on another service temporarily so we can talk if you need me to.
BTW, if this is about a possible commission or offer to join a project, the answer will be no. I don't do commissions anymore.
Hello, I find your really magnificent resources! :D
Thus a few days ago I bought the pack, and there the disappointment ...
Strangely I have no all that we see on screens, set of incomplete tiles... Is it normal?: (
How could I show you my pack to verify the contents?
Thank you in advance for your answer.
There has been some confusion before about one of the screenshots, which doesn't use the artwork as tiles. Specifically people usually are wondering where the gabled windows are. Those were not included as tiles, but with some minor editing you can get the same look. The parts to put those together should be in the same folder as the angled walls, if not please let me know and I'll re-upload the zip.
Dear lord, this pack is amazing. Great work! A note to shoppers, there's quite a bit more in the bundle than what's shown in the screenshots. Take care
Ah, I keep meaning to make a webpage, but I've never managed to finish one and put it online. Following me on here is probably the best way for now.
Sorry, i don't do commissions anymore. Good luck with your game.
I was going to offer a percentage (40%) of sales. As long as the game keeps selling, you keep making money. Either way, if not interested, best of luck. ;)
I never go for those types of offers. Don't know of any professional artist who does, actually. It's nothing personal, it's just that most games are abandoned before publishing, and of the ones that get made the majority sell very poorly. It's a bad investment, and art is difficult enough to make a living off of without that kind of risk. You may be able to find an inexperienced artist who's willing to do that sort of split. You'll need to make a really great pitch for the game though, something that makes an artist want to claim the project as their own. Since the money offered is the equivalent of a lottery ticket you need to offer something else to get people to spend their time and effort on you.
I understand what you are saying. I'm actually a capable 2D and 3D artist. Plus animation too. Just wanted someone to work with so I could focus on code and the music. I've been around a long time and have completed many projects. Anyways... Maybe I'll just do this myself. Thanks for the response. ;)
Already bought it with VX, loved your tileset, and I want moarrrr!
