You shouldn't use vanishing point perspective. The whole game is drawn in an orthogonal perspective (the 2d engine enforces this style). It will just look wrong when integrated into a real map.

How far away are you from a tileset which can be used?

In fact, create the tileset is the hardest thing for me, every single time I try to create one, nothing matches :( and always take me back from finish, this new try is based on the actual tilesets but I always have to fix issues by hand, Im not giving up but I'm still far from a real useable tileset

How do you create tileset? Using gimp with grids?

yes, copying and paste on Gimp, saving as xcf using layers but saving a copy as a png file, and this is what I have now...and again it doesn't match, heh

I've started thinking about how we can integrate elements from the temple into the new desert I'm working on

It'd be nice if the columns were a closer colour to the sand (or vice versa).

I wouldn’t make such a change without AxlTrozz being advised and agreeing to it first (it is his baby after all)

I'd prefer them to have different colors and not to blend everything into the environment.

I tend to go with 3 layers of standing out (personal philosophy):
1. ground level: should have the dullest colors (no outlines everything blends into each other)
2. objects level: stands out from the ground level (with more contrast and maybe even a light outline)
3. player and dropped item level: stands out the most (heavily saturated with dark outlines)
I believe this helps create the illusion of depth

I made a new texture that might be helpful to the outside of the temple not sure how it should be used yet
