Use

  4. Expect it will get out of date.
  5. Download it again.

Git Guru Usage

"I want to stay up-to-date"

  1. (recommended) use some sort of git management program (Fork recommended, Github Desktop also works).
  2. Clone this repo: https://github.com/gathertown/mapmaking.git
  3. To check for changes: [Fetch/Pull]

If you want to contribute you're welcome to make pull requests. Tilesheets

Because all the tiled files (TMX / TSX) use relative paths, we're golden. Everything is self-contained in the repo, or even if you have side-projects that reference this repo, it should still work.

Tileset Naming Convention

for tilesets (.tsx)

Group Name #.x.tsx Where

  • Group is likely "Gather"
  • Name is the tileset name, like "Floors" or "Decoration"
  • # is the major version number. Like all versioning systems, the anything contained in a "major version" (to the left of the .) are compatable with themselves.
  • x is literally "x"

for tilesheets (".png")

group_name_#.#.png

  • group is likely "gather"
  • name is the tilesheet name, like 'floors' or 'decoration'
  • # is the major version number. Like all versioning systems, the anything contained in a "major version" (to the left of the .) are compatable with themselves.
  • # is the minor version number. Consider these small changes like little refinements or adding more items without moving anything around.

example:

  • Gather Floors 1.x.tsx points to gather_floors_1.3.png. If the tilesheet is updated (from 1.3 to 1.4) then
  • Gather Floors 1.x.tsx poitns to gather_floors_1.4.png.
