TileSet Animated Tiles (Water, River, Sea)

Hi there,

Is there any tutorial or thread that teatch how to insert animated tiles?

I have tilesets like this and I need to learn how to animate them, I asked in discord but I couldn’t get a hint of what to do.
How do I create animated tiles and how do I change them to be the same as the tileset?

I believe DerTheVaporeon made a post here about Tilesets with an explanation on Animated Tiles.

If you still want more of an explanation, I’ve inserted tile animations once using FEBuilder.


First you need to go to “Tile Animation 1”. It’ll take you to a screen that looks like this.


The part in the brackets is one of the images that the game cycles through for the tile animation. There are 16 total, but I believe you can change it as you see fit. I exported the default image, adjusted it to fit my new tileset, and imported it back in for each frame (You can also bulk export/import if you’d like, I don’t think it really matters as long as you’re consistent).


The linked post explains this too, but only these two rows of tiles are actually used for tile animations. I think that’s all there is to it, so good luck with the tile animation!
