  • Thirteen Potions Build Log
    4 projects | dev.to | 22 Oct 2023
    When I first messed with Phaser, I just used a 2D array to plop in my tiles, but that was very tedious. That's when I discovered the Tiled map editor! I was able to "paint" with my tilemap to create a map with various layers. I made a ground layer, a wall layer, an enemy layer, and a potion layer.
  • People who play LANCER on FoundryVTT (or other VTTs), what do you do/use it terms of battle maps?
    2 projects | /r/LancerRPG | 10 Jun 2023
    I use Tiled with this tileset I found in Pilot NET. The maps it creates are entirely form over function - no fancy art or effects unless you add them a different way - but they're very legible. Then I use Foundry's drawing tools to sketch out outlines for cover, object sizes, etc. (Here's an example of a map I made for a Train Heist combat - orange is Size 1, yellow is soft cover, purple is difficult terrain, and so on.)
  • Level creation when using frameworks

    I'm pretty happy with Tiled, which is widely used for this: https://www.mapeditor.org
  • Enchanced TileMap Editor for Godot 3.5!
    4 projects | /r/godot | 6 Feb 2023
    I'm making this plugin because Godot 4 won't be mainstream for a long time (yes, it's awesome and I already love it). And in version 3.5, the TileMapEditor is very hard to use. Of course, it is possible to use "Tiled" editor and vnen/godot-tiled-importer, but this is also not always convenient. https://www.mapeditor.org/ https://github.com/vnen/godot-tiled-importer

  • Exploring the World of Indie Game Development: My Journey from Pixel Art to JavaScript Frameworks and Beyond
    4 projects | dev.to | 23 Jan 2023
    As I went through the code samples of the Pokémon clone provided in the article, with only a minimal understanding of sprite maps, I was surprised to see that this clone was created entirely in JavaScript and with under 200 lines of code. I learned that JSON plays a significant role in how these games work. I also realized that Aseprite alone is not enough and that another piece of the puzzle, a map editor called "Tiled," was necessary to build these JSON files.
  • Is there any good 3d tilemap editor?
    2 projects | /r/gamedev | 29 Dec 2022
    I prototyped a working version with Tiled — it uses layers for the Y dimension, and a manually-built tileset. Individual tiles are mapped to gLTF models in the code.
  • 2D MMO UI being built in Ebitengine!
    4 projects | /r/ebitengine | 27 Dec 2022
    I had to write my own parser for Tilededitor maps so that I could get the animated tiles working properly (If anyone needs this I could probably clean it up and share it)

  • How easy is Monogame for a beginner coming from game engines?
    6 projects | /r/monogame | 23 Dec 2022
    MonoGame abstracts a lot of the rendering work and is easy to use for 2D games (I haven't tested its 3D support so far). It also provides you with a content pipeline plus audio and input handlers. All that's left for you to do is roll your own Entity Component System, physics, and game logic. If you're not interested in writing your own physics, there are libraries out there already. Additionally, if you don't want to get caught up in the details of data serialization, Json.NET is a great package for serializing data in JSON format. That makes it perfect when paired with a map editor such as Tiled, which can export to JSON.
