Level Editor?
« on: April 24, 2013, 09:47:19 AM »
Hello, I backed this game because I thought it showed a lot of promise but there's one thing I'd like to know since all my research (not much, admittedly) couldn't dig anything up on it:

Will this game have a level editor?

I ask because all the levels in the game are said to be designed rather than randomly generated and I think it'd be extremely cool to be able to download player created levels to be added to the roster of available levels.

I think it'd be a very cool thing to see but I can understand if it isn't planned.

I'm not sure if they will add a level editor ... but modding will be possible so it will most likely be possible to download players creation.
The Bard didn't make it! Victory!!

"Modding

The game features a custom scripting and database system based on XML, which uses both internally developed tools, as well as some free tools like Tiled, and commercially available tools like Spine. Everything in the game is moddable, from character properties to map layouts. We use these systems to quickly create new content, and we’re excited to see what the community can do once we release these features.

Modding documentation may be available shortly after the game’s release, though we will make efforts to have this information available at launch."

from Kickstarter page. 1 minute search.

Doomspeaker already quoted the appropriate bit, but I'll add some more detail.


Yes, you can make your own rooms and levels for the game. We actually use a very simple, free, open source tool called Tiled. When building rooms, you have the ability to place static (non-random) objects and/or objects that are affected by the randomness system. So, you could completely handcraft a room or you could make a room that is completely randomized based on the content and parameters you put in.


You can also tile the floor and have multiple variations that the random system can choose from. The walls are procedurally generated, since they are a mix of 2D and 3D pieces.


"Levels" really just consist of data that references all given rooms a level can contain, some configuration parameters, whether or not any rooms are required to be included, etc.


All of this will be documented at some point and made available with the other general modding information.

Excellent!  I really enjoy Tiled, so this should be a lot of fun!
