Description

The TileMap class is used to work with tile maps easily and efficiently.

Check Desert and Sewers examples provided with Gideros for usage of TileMap with export from editor.

Example

-- set the tilemap texture
local texture = Texture.new("gfx/finalts16.png")
-- number of columns and rows in the tileset
local tilesetcols, tilesetrows = 11, 5
-- calculate the tiles width and height
local tilew, tileh = texture:getWidth() / tilesetcols, texture:getHeight() / tilesetrows
-- create the tilemap
local tm = TileMap.new(
	2*16, 2*8, -- map size in tiles
	texture, -- tileset texture
	tilew, tileh, -- tile size in pixel
	0, 0, -- spacing
	0, 0, -- margin
	tilew, tileh -- display width and height
)
-- build the map
for i=1,4 do
	for j=1,4 do
		tm:setTile(i, j, i, j)
	end
end
-- some other tiles in the map
tm:setTile(6,3,5,1) -- col position, row position, tile col index in tilemap, tile row index in tilemap
tm:setTile(7,3,5,1) -- col position, row position, tile col index in tilemap, tile row index in tilemap
tm:setTile(6,4,5,2) -- col position, row position, tile col index in tilemap, tile row index in tilemap
tm:setTile(7,4,5,3) -- col position, row position, tile col index in tilemap, tile row index in tilemap
-- position the map and add to stage
tm:setPosition(0, 0)
stage:addChild(tm)
