What next?

In a future version of this we want to have more tilesets to display and we also want to put the every tile of the different tilesets on any layer, not being limited to chose one tileset for that layer. So the user will be able to choose different tilesets with p, o, i and wil be able to put that tile on a different layer pressing ‘L’ and using the mouse wheel, for example. The tile will occupy the space in the matrix of that layer. This will be done in version 1.4.

  • Use every tile in any layer
  • change layer with l + mousewheel
