What would be the average pixels for a small house in TMW?

A player character is about 64 pixels high. Do the math :)

Or use the buildings from the woodland_village tileset as a reference.

  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Anything that fits vertically on the screen in such a fashion that players can actually see all the details in some fashion. (With balconies and roofs you can cheat and make them infinitely higher.)

Vertically there should also be no limit, but map design. (Pixellating house tiles should always give freedom to the mappers to do both crazy and unique designs.)
This message used to be meaningful.

The lower left is the one I created, and yes you can take any part or the whole if you want, those are TMW houses :)
