My plan is to have a 9Patch rectangle draw over a Tilemap, and when I release the mouse, all tiles below the 9Patch will change to a different tile in the Tilemap.
Is this possible, or do the two Objects not interact with each other in this way ?
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
You can use "Set tile range" in Tilemap object to do what you want and then use 9patch to only visualize area of selection.
That's what I'm doing, but I can't set each Tilemap tile under the 9patch.
I was hoping I could do 'For each tilemap tile under 9patch, set tile to 2'
"Set tile range" is a bit confusing at start. Because Tile X and Tile Y are index numbers of tiles (not XY position coordinates) and Width and Height are the same - how many tiles horizontally and vertically you want to affect (not pixels).
That's it !!! Thank you, I'm still new to Tilemaps and this was a massive help !
\I've adapted the CAPX that you have made, and now I'm trying to get it to sense if there is a tile already there, on the bottom tilemap, and if it does sense one, then to leave that spot blank on the top tilemap.
So far I have this, dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/108799982/Capx%20Demos/OverlappingTilemaps.capx , but I'm afraid it's not working. Would you be able to give me one last assist ? <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
Is this what you want?
Its erasing all tiles from Tilemap2 if they have same XY position as Tilemap1 - so you can make Tilemap2 tiles only on blank spaces of tilemap1.
Indeed it is, you sir are a genius <img src="smileys/smiley20.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
