Saving and loading is the one thing that just terrifies me, I'm sure it's irrational as it can't be that hard but I don't really know where to start. I've done it before where I read or write to a text file to get information and build a map out of it, but I feel like that is kind of messy... I figured ya'll might be able to give me some insight on this.
At this current moment in time I am working on a program that gives you a 2d grid that you can alter, I want to save the information of each tile and use it in a game I am also working on. Is saving it to a text file really the best answer for me or is there another way?
