New Sprite / Entity Importer!


Recently I've been working on the tool to create sprites within the Map Editor (will be renamed to world creator soon), and today I'm releasing a video showing you what it can do.

I have been clumsy naming the stuff "Unit", instead off "Entity", but done is done, and can be changed ;).

Earlier I had the sprites hard-coded for the game and had to write lots of lines of code just to add a new entity to the game (object, enemy etc). I decided to change this and wrote the Entity Importer. Now it only takes a few minutes to import a new entity to the game, set its properties, create its animations and place it in the game world.

And the reason you really stopped by: The YouTube Video:

Until next post!

  1. Såg väldigt intressant ut, har funderat en del den senaste tiden på om man inte borde skriva en 2d pixel editor som även har animerings stöd och alla dom pixel-värktyg man kan behöva, jag har aldrig hittat en pixel editor som jag har varit nöjd med, och kör fortfarande PSP 7.xx(något som driver mig galen i emellanåt med alla dom precisions buggarna den har) :3

    anyway, nice work mr solar :)
