If you’re not a great graphic artist, like me, there are several websites that allow you to create your own, thus:
- Chibi KYARATSUKURU (RMXP) – This is a more comprehensive character maker, Google-translated into English from its original Japanese version. I love creating characters here, even if none of them ever make it into games!
- RPG Material – Character Generation (RMVX) – This is the ultimate RMVX character creator (and the only one as far as I know). Not only can you create your own characters by setting a series of options, but you can randomize characters. The output even has the appropriate facesets to use too!
While these are the best resources for creating RMXP/RMVX chipsets conveniently online, there are several methods for character sets and chipsets from older versions of RPG Maker compatible with RMXP/RMVX. I’ll cover that in a future entry.
