what i don't understand is why are some images/tiles here are cut in half, and some are whole. Check row 4/5 fences or check the boats further down.
Now scroll a little more down and see some of the larger images are whole but the house are cut in pieces.

Imagery doesn't have to be consistent so long as the engine and data formats can deal with it.

In tilesets (spread out to grab rectangles of pixels):
In games (rectangles of pixels overlapping):
(Pardon my uneven red lines that don't properly line up)
How are you going to separate the tiles properly, if the middle chunk actually goes one row lower (one half-tile lower) than the others?
The chunks of the house on the left and the right are half-obscured by the center chunk of the house.
Remember with isometric tiles, every other row is offset by half a tile both vertically and horizontally. So if two pieces of tile fit together on two seperate rows, the one tile behind the other tile will be half obscured.
