How to make Tiles change if surrounded by other tiles?

  • Hi, how can we change the tile if it is surrounded by one or more tiles.

    ( given that grass tile has 5 images 1] grass on top,left,right. 2] grass on top, left 3] grass on top,right 4] grass on top 5] tile without grass(dirt tile). also there are other types of tiles, so to have these many tiles with multiple images, do we need to import multiple tilemaps consisting of different types of tiles for individual platform like grass, metal, bridge, stone...?)

    for eg:

    https://imgur.com/a/bePFZ7m suppose I have my default tile which has grass on top, on left & on right sides

    if I add another tile on it's right side then both the tiles should connect i.e. first tile should change automatically to other image which has grass only on top and left side, the second tile should only have grass on top and right side when the layout starts and update image of all tiles if it is surrounded by other tiles.

    how can we perform the following checks and update the tile image according to it?

    has tile on top, has tile on left, has tile on right, has tile on bottom.[/code:1yc7vupw] 
    [b]also how can we do following checks on sprite objects as we can do a lot more cool stuff with sprites and we have multiple animation frames for a sprite which makes changing the image much easier.[/b]
