Hi, I am making my first tile based game... I am just using square tiles and have some fringe tiles. My question is: Should I make a 3 separate arrays to plot the base tiles, the fringe tiles and the objects, or should I make a tile structure that contains these three things, then just have an array of that structure? Thanks - Free Your Mind -

I use layers... but because i just like ''em. If you have 3 arrays, you can let the computer do allthe work, and it will be really simple for you ! You will be able to modify your structures any time you want, without having to sort everithing to figure out where things should go. Oh well i guess the frame rate will suffer, but thats life .
