Now what im looking for is a bit more information on how layers work with 2d tile maps to give a 3d like effect e.g. players can walk behind trees etc.
I would like to know:
What kind of layers are there? i know theres forground and background, but what others might be useful?
How many layers should i ideally have for my game?
Are there any tutorials/guides/articles that could help me understand and also code this system?
Thanks very much guys, any help will be appreciated
