IIRC, I set up the preset tile groups for quick access to blue / black / white platform. That could work fine on its own, I think. Or, heck, the stars could be specific setpieces, doodads like the Mass Deposits, not little dots scattered about. Something like this: https://prnt.sc/r5vybm Without the small stars in the background. Just the big star, whatever color it is. One big star doodad. Seems like it would make the most sense, considering the tileset behavior.
At the moment, I believe Base Platform, Supply Depot platform, and black void tiles are set to be paintable. Which is fine! They seem to be most common.
Actually, one reason I was asking about stars is because the 8 possible paint groups are not enough for Heighliner tileset. There are more than 8 terrain types. There is: Base platform, Supply Depot, Black platform horizontal+vertical, Blue platform horizontal+vertical, White platform horizontal+vertical, which makes 8. But then there is void, and potentially also stars. I'm having hard time how to solve this (need 9 or 10 paint types, but it's actually a problem). If there will be just black void and no stars, I'm thinking of hijacking the Thick Spice button to paint black void tiles instead (and place MD Pads different way), which is rather a dirty work-around. The other option is to sacrifice one or two other terrain types (most likely any of black/blue/white platform). What you think?
Very much so! And I absolutely will, Klof. Actually, I had an idea for another... uhh, 20 maps in the Summers campaign. But, they're just ideas for now. Need a new tileset or two before I can actually, you know, go through with making the maps. Also, I need to re/play a ton of Cm's stuff before I can even do that. XD So, the gears will turn at whatever pace they may.
I'm not sure about the stars idea. I mean, maybe we could put a six tiles star doodad that's actually really big, not just white dots. If there were white dots, none of them would ever be close to the platform edge. So... it's in the workshop!
I guess you're busy with IRL stuff, like me. But I'm really looking forward what new you will come up about your Heighliner tileset and what useful things you can use the new possibilities and features for. Feel free to post any time you make something interesting.
I also wanted to say, that you can take advantage of the configurable smooth-edges feature in your tileset, and 8 paing groups as well. But this will need some reorganization of preset groups and presets you currently have in your tileset configuration. I'm willing to do this configuration for you, if you want. So in that case, just wanted to ask if you made any modification or new stuff (like adding stars), to send me the up-to-date version of your tileset and configuration.
