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

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 3 years ago

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! =)

The fact that this high quality teaching is for free is mind boggling to me. People will charge an arm and a leg for a fraction of what you're teaching!

Oh man, I'm so incredibly happy that I found you on youtube. Your Godot tutorials are extremely helpful and well-made. Thank you so much!

I'm doing a 2D platformer level as part of an independent study class in college. I told my teacher that once I can figure out how to make map design as easy as dragging and dropping blocks like it's Super Mario Maker, I'll really be able to speed things up. Well, here we are! Obviously, there's still more to come by watching this series, but in terms of actually having a level built to move around in, this was the thing I was looking for, so I didn't have to copy/paste a tile over and over.

Thanks you for this series I am becoming more confident in my game development knowledge thank you

That editing in the intro with pulling tiles to your desktop and Steve jumping happily when you talk about removing the ugly floor tiles is so well done. The lessons are of course amazing, but I don't think enough people talk about how high your production values are. Thanks! <3

who on earth could possibly click the thumbs down button for this awesome series

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.

Your videos helped me ALOT because I was looking to learn how to script on this engine and your videos helped me understand it/learn it extremely well. So thank you so much!

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?

Wow, I was just creating a pixel art tileset when my phone informed that there's a new tutorial out!
Excited to put them to use right away! :)

Thanks !
Wondering if you can cover math topics in game programming ? And how its used ?
Things like Matrices, transforms, Interpolation etc.
I had a hard time understanding 'normalized' in code.
The godot docs are very difficult to understand because of all the technical vocabulary.
Nor do they explain programming concepts.
Thanks again. Your videos are helping alot of people understand things more clearly.

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!

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.
