Introducing the World Tool


The biggest new feature since the last snapshot is the new World Tool. Worlds have been supported since Tiled 1.2, but so far they had to be created and edited manually. In the past weeks I've been helping Nils Kübler with polishing a new tool that enables modifying worlds in Tiled, including adding, removing and moving around maps. New worlds can now also be created by choosing Map > New World.

Otherwise, this snapshot includes the latest fixes in Tiled 1.3.3 and brings support for the recently added layer tint color to the GameMaker: Studio 1.4 export.

Next Steps

My goal is to release Tiled 1.4 in a few weeks, delayed a little bit by the inclusion of the world tool and additional bugfixing for 1.3. Of course, COVID-19 counter measures have affected me as well. I'm working from home now with my kids not going to school / kindergarten. Let's hope a few weeks of isolation will turn the tide!
