SamGreen's Comfy/Small/17*13 Indoor Mapping Tutorial

I've had a couple requests for the tiles so I've put them on mediafire here.

Welcome to my first tutorial, I decided to create one as I've seen way too many indoor maps that are mahoosive and don't actually need to be!

Spoiler:

Okay, so first you want to make the map just the normal 17*13 and draw some roof tiles 2 tiles thick from the side of the walls and add walls 2 tiles high across the top.


Secondly, choose your flooring (go with wooden at first and then add carpets later as shown later)


Now this is the part you big mappers will find hard, crop down your house to a more suitable and "homey" size. Also, don't forget to add a doorway (see screenshot).

This is the size I will use for the tutorial but have a look at the end of tutorial for more sizes and finished houses.

After you've got the size sorted out you can start arranging your other floor tiles, normally one set for the kitchen floor and another for a lounge/dining area.


Now always make sure to add windows before you add the furniture then you can work out when you'll need to use events for mapping clashes!


First add in the kitchen appliances etc making sure to avert clashes, also make sure you have all the necessities for a kitchen such as a cooker/sink/place for plates and cutlery to go etc. If the map's too small then obviously just make it that little bit bigger.


Now add other furnishings such as chairs and stairs (normally I don't make the upstairs accessible but you can map that if you wanted to or I make the map bigger and add a downstairs bed (see screenshots at the end)


Add a fireplace, I normally add a carpet underneath and event the bottom of the fireplace ontop. (I've also added a little picture wink.gif)


All other indoor maps that I was reffering to can be found HERE, check out the second map for a reference to the bedroom being downstairs.


Please tell me what you did or didn't like about the tutorial, or what you think I should do to make it better!
Thanks for looking tongue.gif

Great tutorial. It really shows how much detail you can have in a very small space. I never really thought about making "small and cute" maps like that, but it's a good way to show the contast between your NPCs' quality of life. This works well for peasant and country homes, while the insides of middle to upper class dwellings could have a little more open space.

You're crazy wink.gif I've posted quite a few maps of the same format but not this one, I used to think I mapped indoors really bad so I posted crap loads of indoor maps only to find people really like the style biggrin.gif

Great Work, though I have two questions:

1. How did you get just one portion of the roof tile showing? IE: The slender wooden bar outlining everything. Is that simply the whole tile?

2. When you decreased the size of the map, how did you allow for the roof tile to connect at the bottom where the door is?

These may be stupid questions but I know nary about mapping in RPG Maker @_@

The tutorial is great, but with the beginner in mind wouldn't it be better to use only RTP tiles? That would make it much easier for the learner to follow along. People brand-new to RPGM might not even be aware there are tiles beyond the RTP sets and get frustrated trying to make thier house look like the one in the tutorial.
