Although I did like the aesthetic of the Pixel City tiles:

I'm not sure they're really appropriate for the editor view in , because you're going to be placing pawns on top of them by dragging, and it's not hard for buildings to block the tile you want. I'm not really up to implementing SimCity2k-style camera rotation, at least at the moment.

The most usable modern set I've found is from Kenney:

I’m native in French and fluent in English. I’m familiar with American, British and French pop culture and references.

Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.

It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.

Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!

I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.

Please read the rules before signing-up :)

PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
