“Dirtwater”

As an homage to Dyson’s Delves (which served as inspiration for this project), maps will be filed under the category, “Dither’s Delves.”

Here is this week’s free RM map, “Dirtwater.”

I know these dungeon names are the best part of your week.

You’ll need to change the file name to place it in your RPG Maker VX Ace project, to whatever the next unused map number you have in your Data folder.

In some cases it make work better to create a new blank map, changing this file name to match, and overwriting your blank map by dragging this one into the Data folder. RM can be a little weird about copy-pasting files directly.

Included in the folder is a thumbnail showing the basic layout of the entire map, as seen below:

And here are some more screens:


Treasure chest not appearing in the map file.

There’s “dirt.” And also “water.” Allegedly.

The player gains experience for finding treasure! (XP not included.)

So, this is pretty much a thing now. I’ll release a map file for Mother of Monsters each week until I run out of maps or the game itself is released.

(Planned for June 1st, 2015.)

I removed all the events so you can rearrange things at your leisure.


Everything you see was created using the RTP (Runtime Package) that comes standard with RPG Maker VX Ace, the “dungeon” tileset.

There are no terms of use. You don’t have to give me credit.

If you learned something, good on you.
