Non-Tile Boards

Post by DFroGGotten1 » Sun Oct 29, 2017 2:38 am

I seen the tutorials in the site use the 32x32 tile setup, but what about boards that do not use tiles (like the towns/areas used in Saga Frontier 2) that have a bit of an isometric feel

Hi DFroGGotten1, and welcome to the RPGWizard! From looking at screen shots of Saga Frontier 2 (never played it myself :oops:) it sounds like your talking about Board Images, Grindalf has also requested this. Something along the lines of:

At the minute it is not really possible unless you make it up from a load of tiles, I'll probably try to fast-track this feature for the first release of 2018 since 2 people have asked for it.

yeah, that's basically what I'm talking about. and please do. I would love to try to re-create Goblin Glory as i envisioned it before, and that requires board images.

Go ahead and use your normal language, we can translate it elsewhere.

i tinkered with it a bit already. I used a few placeholder images and a placeholder sprite and tested the board image feature. works great. it will be very useful for maps that change elevation, or have stationary translucent items like mist, fog, or for aerial maps, cloud cover and land on a lower level to act as a backdrop.

Yeah that's better. I thought you spoke a different language or something. Sorry about that.

@Dfrog
Basically, anything you want added or needs improvement?
