Library for Tilesets/Sprites?
I have an idea for an RPG and was looking for a different set of character art and tiles to use, any suggestions where to look?

I'm with you. I love this product immensely, but please give us more than 30 sprites. It needs to be AT LEAST 100.

There's a generator for both faces and sprites incorporated within the engine.

The official site has a store where you can purchase more tilesets. The forums also have a resource forum where members share resources amongst each other.

You are kidding right? $70-$100 (depending on region) software and they want you to fork over more money for simple things that should be included in the first place?

Considering I have created such a tileset myself, and spend several months working on it on my own, YES, I certainly do expect you to pay for that.

The extra graphics were created by artists who are not part of the company, so the way they get paid is by your purchase. That said, they have done their damnedest to create wonderful sets that fit with the default graphics. If you don't like the default RTP, there's also a High Fantasy set for sale which is pretty pimp.
That said, the cost of the extra sets are pretty decent - under $20 mostly, though the complete ones are a little more - but then, you're getting a complete tileset with more charactersets.
You could always check out the resource forums for any shared resources, too.
Celianna and Lunarea have both in the past given some sweet Steampunk tiles as well as others. The Steampunk ones are free to use in free-to-play games (I believe you have to purchase a license to use them in a commercial endeavor but they are pretty awesome).
Not to mention some of the stuff that the staff at the official forums gives for use each month or so. So it's not like there aren't other resources out there for use. You just have to get off your ♥♥♥♥ and take a look.

Thank you for the helpful information. Can someone point me at the store with a link?

All the trolls complaining about the price really do sound like kids with entitlement issues, who are mad that the allowance mommy gives them won't cover the cost.

Howdy, here are some links for various kinds of resources, with all kinds of different restrictions. This was a couple of hours on google. Remember be sure to read the rules for any resources you come across and if there aren't any rules then the set is best left alone.

I agree with you, that guy is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ anyway

Grandma Deb has compiled a good number of resources. Here are some of the lists here: Granny's Lists

so basically the software is just like the sims as in we get the basic stuff but for everything additional we have to pay more? for example if I want some additional sprites I can buy it and if I want another I have to buy that one too... like in sims addons? correct?

Unless you consider the artists who made those assets part of the company then yes.

This is not a game. You make games with this and buying those assets is akin to commissioning someone to draw your art.
CP Dec 18, 2012 @ 3:07pm 
There are certain free assets, but yes, if you want to sell what you're making in most cases you will need to pay the author who made them.

My scripts, for example, are free to use in non-commercial projects, but I expect something in return for commercial projects.

Considering that companies like Adobe want you to pay literally thousands of dollars for their software and the rights to make money on whatever you produce, I don't think it's at all unreasonable. At $70.00 for the software it's probably the cheapest software on my computer. (Microsoft Office is a few hundred and Adobe CS5 full version with rights to make money on what you create is a $3000+ value.) Most artists pour hundreds of hours into what they make and get very little return on their investment in the way of financial compensation. Being a starving artist is no fun.

How would it work if I, for example, decided to use your scripts initially for non-commercial, but then I begin to commercialize the game? What if the game is free and I ask for donations? Please assume this, the transfer from non-commercial to commercial is a single game starting out for free and later on getting a price tag.
