Tidy tilemapper
« on: April 09, 2012, 11:02:30 AM »
Hi
I wondered if someone could convert the tidy tile mapper API into playmaker actions.

thanks.

Hi,

 Interesting :) I'll get in touch with them and see if I can get a license to port them tools into playmaker.

Tho, within playmaker, could explain how you would use the runtime api? It seems to me looking the various tuts and videos that really, either you get the map from a description file or it's built in during editing.

 Bye,

 Jean

Hi
and thanks !

you can build the map in the editor or in run time with the API functions or a combination of the two which I hope to active.

I wanted to use the run time functionality to add and remove blocks and to get "tile" locations
for movement animation if tile xyz1 is triggered have a random xyz tile do something.


my uses for this would be:
create a character controller for a turn based system
I would also like to be able to generate the map on level load. based on variables for procedural environments.

I hope this helps somewhat.

Hi,

 I was in contact with Joshua last week, and he's all up for it, but a serious api rework is undergoing, so when this will be released, I'll then be able to work on that,

 Bye,

 Jean

Hi,

Any news on this front? Have been using Playmaker in a project for a while now, alongside Tidy Tile Mapper, and would be fantastic to have the two communicate for a lot of the API functions.

Thanks

Hi,

 Actually, Joshua ( the guy behind Tidy TileMapper) just got back to me yesterday regards porting it to playmaker. So now I am in a position to start working on this.

 I have to be realistic, I am not expecting any free time until mid september to properly focus on this.

But it's all ready to move forward. I had a glance at the api already, and I think it will be straight forward.

bye,

 Jean

Hi Jean, I'm just wondering if you have added Tidy TileMapper to playMaker yet? And if not do you have any update regarding it? I'm just waiting for a check to clear in my account then ill be buying playMaker, it's exactly what I'm looking for right now, I have Tidy TileMapper and it would be great to have it added to playMaker

Hi,

 yes, I have tidyTile Map maker here, and it's just screaming at me... :) I simply have to finish first the IOS storeKit port and the database editor wizard as well. Once that is out of the way, TidyTile Map is on as well as A* pathfinding.

 If however you need something quicker, pm me to see what we can arrange, but as far as my spare time managent, it's pretty packed with pending stuff that I ought to finish first... sorry.

bye,

 Jean
