I'm thinking about creating my own map editor, with my own saving to file code etc. My goal is something like this : .
I'll be using tiles, as a tile could be the size 70x30 (not sure yet). Since I need way more horizontal lenght, cause I will only use it for platformers. I wonder how it is possible that he can create tiles on every place on the map. Is he using tiles, and have the picture of the tile start at given coordinates? Or is this a right way to do it?
So instead of a tile having 1 picture, it now has a picture at a given coordinate inside the tile.
