I'm having trouble making custom maps. Mine almost never look as good as the ones that came with the plug-in. Are there some general mapping rules I can follow to make my maps look nicer?

1. Take advantage of layers.
2. Take a look at the example maps and use the right click tool to sample random tiles that seem confusing to use at first (floor, trees, fences...) and in which layers they are used.

If you'll share some map screenshots we could share particular advice, and I'll recommend this thread: https://reliccastle.com/threads/40/

You can also try the feedback channel on the Relic Castle discord server.

Okay, I think I'll try building a map and posting it on the feedback thread. I'm not much of an artist, though.

What I actually wanted to put as main point yesterday but forgot was that mapping is a thing that one can get quickly better at through trial and error
