Tired of RPG Maker MZ's Map Editor? Do you want to map the XP way but more? Tired of Parallax Mapping? Want to do round corners? Want to create a map with basically unlimited layers?

Well, now all those worries are gone! Instead, let's just use the awesome map editor, TileD! Free, easy to use and very flexible Map Editor. Grab it from here: http://www.mapeditor.org/

Features include all (but not limited to) the following:

  • Any tile size maps!
  • Any number of layers!
  • Manual collision layers!
  • ...More

A warning: This plugin is for advanced users, or users who plan to learn TileD. We at VisuMZ are not TileD support and will not be teaching TileD, or answering support questions in regards to TileD itself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How do I use the Tiled Plugin / How can I make a Tiled Map?

  • Please PLAY the sample project and open the sample maps. There's documentation in them and a template to help you get started immediately.

Question: My Tiles are not displaying!

  • Make sure to check the sample project folder and see how we set up everything.
  • Make sure that your tilesets are 1024x1024 MAX
  • Make sure that your tilesheet images are in img/tilesets folder as usual.
  • Make sure that your Tiled Maps and Tileset files are .json and in the maps folder.
  • You can only have 12-13 sheets MAX in a single map before RPG Maker starts choking on itself.


This plugin is made for RPG Maker MZ. This will not work in other iterations of RPG Maker.

Tier 5

This plugin is a Tier 5 plugin. Place it under other plugins of lower tier value on your Plugin Manager list (ie: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

This is to ensure that your plugins will have the best compatibility with the rest of the VisuStella MZ Plugin library.

Major Changes

This plugin adds some new hard-coded features to RPG Maker MZ's functions. The following is a list of them.


TileD Mapping

Maps can now be made via the mapping program TileD. This allows you the user to create maps with any number of layers using any tile sized desired. Please see the dedicated sections for more information.


Setting up

TileD Maps and Tilesets are stored in the YOUR_PROJECT_FOLDER/Maps folder. This folder does not exists by default, so you will need to create it.

This plugin comes with a few Map and Tileset Templates. The Tileset Templates contain tilesets with predefined Collision, Region, and Flag tiles. You may use these tilesets or create your own for use within your maps.

Maps and Tilesets from TileD are exported as JSON and put in here with the format of MapXXX.json where XXX is the ID of the map, for map files.

Special Layers

This plugin uses special layers to specify certain properties.


Region Layer

This is a layer with the property regionId. You can have any number of these layers.

If this layer has a number value (e.g: 2) that means no matter what tile you draw on this layer those tiles will have that speified regionId.

If this layer has the value of tile-base that means the individual tiles will check for a property called regionId to specify that tiles region. See the Special Tilesets section for more information.


Collision Layer

This is a layer with the property collision. You can have any number of these layers. They dictate where the player and other entites can move to.

If this layer has a value of tile-base than the collision for this layer is based on the tiles painted. See the special tilesets section for more info.

Other valid values are as followed:

full - Any area of this layer cannot be walked upon from any direction.

up-left - Any area of this layer can only be walked upon from the bottom or right.

up-right - Any area of this layer can only be walked upon from the bottom or left.

down-left - Any area of this layer can be walked upon from the top or right.

down-right - Any area of this layer can only be walked upon from top or left.


Reflection Layer

This is a special object layer with the property reflectionCast. Objects on this layer will reflect the character sprites either above or below the character's position on the Y axis based on the value. Negative values will reflect the character that many tiles away above the character, and positive values will reflect the character that many tiles away below the character. Players must enter the objects bounds for reflection to occur.


Mirror Layer

This is a special object layer similar to the Reflection Layer with a bit more control. This is an object layer defined by having the property mirrorCast this property doesn't need a value, it need only exists. Mirroring is controlled by the objects on this layers properties. Objects on the layer with the property mirror will utilize a string value of x,y coordinates. (e.g: mirror: 0,1) These coordinates are the offset for where to cast the mirrored sprites image. Mirrored sprites will also mirror the characters up and down directions, so if the character is facing up the mirrored sprite will utilize the down facing sprite and vice versa.

Additional Layer Properties

These properties provide additional layer functionality.



This property specifies the draw order of the layer. A higher value means it is higher in the order.



This property specifies the draw order for the layer when it shares a zIndex.



This property specifies the level that this layer is on for multi-level maps.



This property specifies that this layer will be hidden if the player is on the specified level. (e.g: if this has a value of 1, and the player is on a spot with level set to 1, this layer is hidden). If a spot has multiple levels assigned to it, it will fallback to the one with higher priority.


Special Tilesets

This plugin uses specialized tilesets with special properties attached to their tiles to handle things such as collision, region id's, and tile flags. below is an explanation of each of these tilesets and how to set them up.


Region Tileset

This is a tileset where each tile has a custom property called regionId the value of this property is a number specifiying this tiles region. draw with this tileset on a layer with the property regionId with a value of tile-base for that position on the map to have that tiles region ID.


Collision Tileset

This is a tileset where each tile has a custom property defining their collision value for use with tile-base collision layers.

The tiles have a property the option to have the following properties.

collision - Same as the property on layers.

arrowImpassable - This property specifies that the directions given in the string cannot be passed through. It is formated as:

direction1 & direction2 & direction3

e.g: down & left & right This example dictates that the only direction the player can move from this tile is up.


Flag Tilesets

This is a tileset that has tiles that specify the special RPG Maker flags. These tiles have any of the following properties.

ladder - This tile acts as a ladder.

damage - This tile is a damage tile

bush - This tile acts as a bush.

counter - This tile acts as a counter
