Thread: A Guide to Effective Mapping (WIP)

    Re: A Guide to Effective Mapping (WIP)

    Great guide, Char! :'D Although, when you say that the cliffs should be Mask, I suggest only making the outlines and the stuff where Ground is visible as the Mask layer, and make the objects that cover your entire tile on the Ground layer. Sorry if that sounds a little confusing. xD

    This is where you begin adding the outline to your house. Where cliffs go, where rivers/ponds/lakes go, and sometimes grass.

    These are examples of how the Mask layer progresses.

    Do one section at a time. If you begin an outline of something (mine is the river), finish it. You can always edit it later.

    The sentence "Do one section at a time. If you begin an outline of something (mine is the river), finish it. You can always edit it later" is repeated here once before the spoiler with the example and once after. I don't know if it was intentional for some reason but...

    Ah! Thank you Digital! I never actually caught that.

    I think when I was transferring over my guide I ended up doubling it by accident. I am glad you saw that!
    I will go ahead and fix that, hope you enjoy the rest of the guide!
