ok, had a bit of time with this, and the idea to build a mesh instead of using the zge Font component for rendering the tileMap. Seems to be working well,. Now we can RMB to select a tile, and LMB to place what is selected,. need to add a way to see all the tiles. Also SPACE to gen noise levels, and...

Like I've said this idea is just working out how to implement a basic tilemap using ZGE as it is (no new components). Whether it should be "built in" or not is up to you. The Font component does do a good job of cutting up a single bitmap into tiles,. but I suspect it would be more efficie...

Even without coding in the source one can still provide pseudo-code, implementation suggestions, and ideas without doing the actual builds., just a thought. The old console solutions would not be taking any modern 3d hardware into account?,. the idea of a tileMap system in ZGE is that we can still u...

ZGE is opensource perhaps to encourage people like yourself wit knowledge/skills to contribute to it, just saying "it should be" this or that does little to further the project. Build it in,. share the code! You do provide many examples and tutorials currently, and I for one am always happ...

What would you consider the "ideal" solution? Assuming the tileMap will be dynamically modify-able as the game is played. For my immediate use, the map is limited in size,. however what if we are doing a scrolling type game with a vast area? Then the display area should move over a larger ...

a basic TileMap implementation

for the first attempt I use the Font Component to cut the tiles up and arrange them,. works well enough for my purpose; a single screen tile based game to be called; nascii . We end up with a 21x38 grid in modern wide screen mode (16:9). Notice the CharScale=.9995; in the levelLayout RenderText Expr...

Nice one Kjell,. lol. Seems like a cool new feature Ville. However, if you are using SunVox for sound anyway, you can also add OGG files to the modular setup. OGGs get embedded into the .sunvox file and can therefor be embedded into a .zgeproj when wanted as well. on another note,. I have been exper...

a "level" editor could be a great thing,. however just reading through this thread we see this means different things to each person. (I would like to see a curve/spline editor first,. useful for so many things. animation, mixing, fading, transitions,..) I have thought to build a 2d/3d lev...

Yes it is a tad odd, and takes a little observation to learn it's peculiarities. Not really interested in making a "game" from this,. although many interesting ideas for other games have be generated playing with it! More games will come. I am planing to rip the sound out and build the Scr...

More Seeds - an Artificial Life EcoSystem

New project, based on an old one. More than 10 years ago I made a thing called Seeds using GameMaker. Recently I was asked for the source code for that, alas,. probably lost on a stolen computer. So I just remade it is ZGE! This took about 10 days. (I only get a couple hours a day to work on this st...
