Top Down Tilemap Editor beta

Hello all, this time I’m releasing one big tool as open-source, I have been working on this for the past few weeks and I think it can be of use to some.
So what is a top-down-tilemap-editor, it is a tool that can help when creating top-down maps for various games or simply to print them.

I struggled with many other programs and tilemap editors but almost all were lining towards platform games, however I’m mostly working with topdown games. So I started to create a map-editor that would be easy to use and would export a json string that I could import to my game and be ready to go.

Show case

So what can this map editor do for you:

  • Import of JSON as exported by it.
  • Export of JSON bases on the names of the tile images e.x (corner.png will become corner in the json)
  • Load of a sample Map for quickstart
  • Load extra items along with tiles
  • Load custom tiles from Dropbox
  • Print tiles for export
  • Adjust Width and Height of Map

You can fork or simply download it here: TNTMapEditor on Github

Or try it out here: TNTMapEditor DEMO

Feel free to post any bugs or request features on the github page. (Issues page)
If you use it for a project drop me a line if you wish.
