Thanks to some more excellent work by Chris, we now have a Map authoring tool for Tyrant that can be used to create new levels.
The idea is that this tool will be used in the future to build special levels and quest locations. It will be very easy to plug maps created with the tool into the game.
The authoring tool is available in version 0.326 to test out. Once launched, the commands are as follows:
Here are some of the keys:
r = rectangle mode
l = line mode
c = circle mode
- save map
+ or = load map
t jump to tile palette. Once a tile is chosen focus is returned to the editor.
h jump to the thing palette. Same as above.
z single level undo
