Godot 3.2: Let's Build a 2D Platformer!: Part 5 (TileMaps & TileSets) #godotengine

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description

Thanks for watching! In this Godot Game Engine tutorial I cover:
- How to use the Tile Map node along with a Tile Set resource to easily 'paint' a level (platforms)
- Use the Tile Set Dock with imported image sprites to define square tiles and their collision shape (rectangle or polygon)
- How to use & configure snapping when editing a tile set
- How to use the 'palette' to select tiles to paint (also: rotating & flipping tiles)
- Scaling & Transforming your entire Tile map.

Thanks for watching, and don't forget to Like & Subscribe to help the channel! =)

You know.. I have been programming for 38 years and I forgot why I used to enjoy it in the beginning. I used to love getting things to animate on my Vic 20.. Fast forward to today and I find myself bored stupid with embedded device programming. I've dabbled with Unity, Blender and various game engines over the years but I never seem to feel inspired to go any further.

Just spending time going through the past 5 tutorials has been a relaxing fun experience and it's got me wondering "Should I have go at making a game sometime?". I appreciate your enthusiasm on these videos. I think that goes a long way. Keep it up!

Nice, easy to follow video. I do have one point of feedback this time. At 7:15, my TileMap dock looked different and I was worried something had gone wrong. The two differences were that I didn't have snapping on (I think it's off by default if you've never touched it) and my tile in the main part of the TileMap dock was a lot smaller, which I changed by clicking the plus symbol in the top right of the TileMap dock to zoom in.

To anyone else who wonders about this, it's OK, just follow through and it'll look the same on your end.

This is an awesome tutorial series! So far I've taken 18 pages of notes will working through these videos, and feel like I'm learning a lot! Thank you!

Still curious how much of everything in this series could be swapped for 3D assets. Like would the coding part be about the same with additional 3D specific code?

You know, if everyone who watched and finished these tutorials send in their levels made during these tutorials, you could have a lot of levels for a game.

16:33 You can change the Node2D's "Z Index" to accomplish the same thing if you'd like to keep your scene structure the same

I'm having trouble with one of the tiles. I can jump right through it from above. I followed what he said exactly. The other tiles are all perfect. I thought it was a collision issue so I made Steve's collision larger and a rectangle and the same problem happens. It's tile 7.

Thank you <3 I finally understand Godot now! :) I have a question, I want to have water and lava in my 2D Platformer game. Can I put the water and lava sprite in the Tileset? My water and lava should be animated. (I'm from Germany sorry if my english is not so good) And can I add Spikes and Saws in my Tilset so I can paint them? The Player get hurt if he is on collision with spikes or saws.
