Finding Resources for RPG Maker VX/Ace – Resources from our German-speaking Friends

You may have heard of the Resource Staff concept, in which talented artists from an RPG making community combine their talents to create a package of goodies for the RPG making world.
(I believe this was the brain-child of Pineda, or at least of the staff when Pineda was actively working his magic in the old RPG Maker VX.net site.)

Did you know that our excellent friends in the German RPG Making Community have a most outstanding set of Resource Staff releases? (The materials in the banner above are from Panda Maru, a contributor there.)
And these resources are all sitting there, waiting for you to appreciate, download, enjoy and use them!

Here they are: go snatch them up! (terms of use translate easily in Google Translate)

Granny’s hints to you are:
When you first open the individual resource threads, the tabs with each resource may take a little longer to load. Wait for it! =]
Look everything over in the thread by clicking on the tabs, and see all the best goodies! Then use the download link to get the zip file.

Here is a picture of how Granny organizes all of her folders from the RPGMaker-VX-Ace.DE Resource Staff:

(oops! Two folders are inconsistent! Even Granny gets it wrong, you know!)

Other tips to help you find things:
1. As you can see above, I named each download by date, with the source, and included a brief description of the contents.
2. Create a text file for each main folder. the NAME of the file should be “2013 09 ReStaff Contents” or something similar. In your text file, list the elements you find in this folder: sprites – modern – gate – use words you might search for. When you search for your resources, you will find this text file and know exactly what resources are being referred to. =]
3. Alternatively, make a text file, put absolutely nothing in it except maybe the link back to the source of the resouces,
and use the NAME of the file to list the elements you might search for (works for simpler lists.)

Enjoy!
