Flipped tiles in a tilemap
« on: January 23, 2013, 04:38:51 pm »
I need to place a flipped tile from the palette on the tilemap, can this be done without creating additional sprite?

This isn't supported yet.
You can create a duplicate of the sprite, flipped in the sprite collection editor, though I appreciate its a massive pain to do this. It will be supported properly in a future version.

I'll add myself to this request :)... Right now I have lots of tiles duplicated that could be just one tile flipped or rotated 90?...

Also, i'll think about a palette creation utility based on a tilemap, for placing the tiles, maybe storing there some tiled drawing you'll use continuously...

Thanks! :)

I'm bumping and putting my $.02 in for getting this feature done. Would save my artist lots of time as we're about to re-do a bunch of different tiles  ;D

Thanks!

I'll definitely do it in the next iteration of the tilemap system.

Any idea when that might be :) ? We're just at the point where we need to re-do our map tiles to have all the rotated/flipped variations, which we'd hate to do if this feature is imminent.  If you imagine that this might be available soon-ish, we'll hold off. Otherwise, we'll just create the variations.

Thanks!

Probably after 1.92, but please don't hold me accountable to that if it doesn't happen then.

If you'd like me to go through whats required, I could do that... Or, what might be much much simpler, is to write a simple plugin to the sprite collection editor, to automatically create the 4 orientations from each sprite, so you won't have to do it by hand every single time.

I'm wouldn't hold you to anything, you already provide great value for the cost of tk2d.

I haven't really dug into the source code for much of the tilemap stuff, but I'm willing to give it a try if you want to point me in the right direction. Or that plug-in bit you talked about, if that's much simpler, would be awesomeness.
