For this week’s Resource Highlight, we’ll be looking at someone who’s done a little bit of everything. Materials by Haydeos! is a great thread to explore if you're looking for a little inspiration for battles and maps! If you own MV then you can use his great edits to take your game to the next level.
For those of us who love having interesting buildings filling up your village maps but suffer from boxy-boring-building-itis, Haydeos has us covered! He has made multiple pre-built buildings, from small homes perfect for your hero’s farmer parents to a grand building that could serve as an inn, a village leader’s house, or even a guild hall. Any game could use these houses as inspiration to make the town buildings into homes that tell a story about the people who live there.
Of course, pre-built houses aren’t the only tile edits he’s made. Haydeos has made plenty of recolors and edits to floor and wall autotiles to help you build the perfect interior, as well as clumped plants to make your wilder areas look even more overgrown. A selection of beds gives you the opportunity to choose one that will fit your NPCs. Give your young NPC a bed with a teddy bear already sitting on it, or a hard-working farmer a well-deserved breakfast in bed. If caverns are more your speed, Haydeos has you covered with curved cave walls and submerged stones and bones to really improve the damp cave’s atmosphere.
Tiles aren’t the only thing you’ll find in his thread though! For those who want to include more non-human SV battlers into your party, Haydeos has made some incredible beasts. A huge Dire Wolf would be an excellent addition to any party, ready to leap and take a bite out of any enemy! And who hasn’t wanted to let a party member transform into an enormous Wererat? Those aren’t the only full SV battlers to be found though, Haydeos has some more silly options as well. If you want to make an unusual game, why not have it star Fritz, Henry, and Clara, three unique rats who could bring some comedy to your battle? Each battler has a few recolors, so you can choose the perfect one to fit into your game’s world!
If you’re looking for something a bit different for resources, check out Haydeos’ trading card assets. He’s set up backgrounds, frames, and some of MV’s images to let you create your own card deck for whatever you need them for. Want to have some simple card games in your game, but don’t want to use normal-looking cards? Make your own with these assets! You could even use some of MZ’s bust art or enemies to make summoning cards to use in your game’s battles, the only limit is your own imagination!
This highlight only scratches the surface of what Haydeos’ thread contains! If you’re looking for new icons or a saber to use in battle, he has some options too. MV sprites and a few useful behaviors such as a maid sweeping can also be found under his ‘Characters’ section.
So what are you waiting for? Go check out Materials by Haydeos! and find that addition that will make your game even better!
