it looks like I need to update my tiled version - I have still 1.03, looking soon

edit: updated and saw the numbers, even they were in the old version too...

is there a way to fix this in tiled if this happens?

Also the whole thing with the order of these tileset was an experiment, as I already read something about IDs in this document:

i created another testmap, where I loaded another tileset first, this swapped my grass and sand tiles ingame...

the text data (content from "data=" replaced with "*numbers*" to shorten the message)






update: i tried adding this to the tilesetdef, but this crashed my game, here the first lines of this file

# medium grass

INCLUDE tilesetdefs/sand_128x64.txt


#row 1

It works, but there is still an issue, when I added another tileset, it only shows the one that is set in tiled. So I set the value to the new one and the new is rendered, but not the old...

I tried doing some basic stuff now and got the problem that my own tiles are not rendered in the game.

I got following error:

INFO: Map: Loading map 'maps/spawn.txt'
INFO: Map: Loading map 'maps/testmap.txt'
ERROR: MapRenderer: Tileset or Map corrupted. A tile has a larger id than the tileset allows or is undefined.
ERROR: MapRenderer: Removing offending tile id 256.

ERROR: MapRenderer: Removing offending tile id 174.
ERROR: MapRenderer: Removing offending tile id 173.
ERROR: MapRenderer: Removing offending tile id 176.
ERROR: MapRenderer: Removing offending tile id 172.

How can I solve this problem / error?, also for what are these files in the tilesetdefs directory?

ok, i will try it soon. Also I got the idea experimenting with a more simple art style that goes faster and still looks good. (Simple textures, details in geometry, a bit more stylized by using shapes)...

this tileset looks good already.

For licensing use CC0 if you don't need / want attribution and the most freedom for other users. But I don't know if you have used stuff created by others (like textures or models). You need to be sure that you can publish it under a free / open source license.

I also would upload the source files, this allows others easily to extend or adjust the tileset.

I am not the character artist type and want to focus mainly on environment first, but I need characters / enemies too where I need help...

I planned to start in 3 - 5 weeks, as I work on a few other things now (like my godot puzzle game called "duoban" or the sword seen in the attachment, based on my own design concept)


For flare I want to begin with something like a HD demo (like the alpha demo) with my new graphics. This also helps me to know what assets are needed or adjusted to work well together. Later I can start to build a real playable campaign out of it, maybe even convert to or recreate the current campaign with only HD assets.


For assets, I created this resource pack in the past, it contains some basic stuff that is useful for creating assets, including a basic render setup and materials that can be used on other objects.

Another way is to use freely licensed 3D assets to make assets for flare, like I did for this pack:
