The RPG Maker series is a good tool for creating a game, but even the makers can’t do everything. And especially when you plan to make a bigger or more complex game, then you will need tools to help and to organise everything.
Other users already have made lists of programs for certain areas - you can find them on the forum, and I’ll link them here later.
But I’ll begin with my own lists of tools I have used or plan to use/test in the future.
