Tile map editor that mite work as plug-in

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • I am just wondering about the plug-in building for this engine.Can I use a Tile Map Editor to build my maps and levels. I been looking over a Program that is "Call Tile Map Editor".

    http://www.mapeditor.org/

    From the looks of it I would think it would be the thing to use as a plugin as a level Editor and over all a good Game mapper. I all so think it mite be open source so i think it would be the thing to use for a C1 user that knows how to build plug in and like to shear .

    Hear is a list of the thing it can work with.

    General purpose tile map editor with XML-based map format

    Supports orthogonal and isometric maps

    Custom objects can be placed with pixel precision

    Full undo/redo and copy/paste support

    Add custom properties to tiles, layers, objects or the map

    Automatically reloads tilesets when changed externally

    Resize or offset your tile map later as needed

    Efficient tile editing tools like stamp and fill brushes

    Supports input/output plugins to open and save files in custom formats

    Their is all so a Java Version that needs some program loving as well and is Open source as well I do believe.

  • Seems to me that a general XML plugin would be all that's needed to use this with Construct. Perhaps some pioneering coder could take the existing INI plugin and rework it so that it reads XML...? Would that be possible?

  • I do agree with you deadeye and I am hoping it is possible and their is some one welling to do it.

    Its something that can be vary useful in devilment and over all game building.

  • I'm not saying I'll do it, as it's not really an option at this point timewise, but either plugin is very possible, the general xml one particular. also, it says it supports custom output formats, which means you can design an exporter specifically for your importer. As a side note though, the isometric thing would still require something else to make it work gameplaywise.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Well their has to be some one with the gift of coding I do it if I could understand it with out falling asleep reading the books. Graphic is what I have put most of my time in to learning,mostly animation an using BVH and 3D software.I just cant get my head rapt around the coding stuff.

    The last time I try it I just cold not stop yawning to death and could not keep my eyes open.

    Oh well we cant all do the wiz-bang coding behind the seen stuff

  • Until we get a xml plugin, python can be used to load xml files.

    This topic has some caps that load Map Editor files using python:
