So i am currently making tile maps fallowing this tutorial.<br />http://www.gamefromscratch.com/post/2015/04/28/Godot-Engine-Tutorial-Part-8-Tilemaps.aspx<br /><br />I have very little time to do this since i work full time and have maybe an hour every other day to work on this. I would like to start learning some other parts of Godot and not spend weeks on making tile maps. Is there any way to quickly make these maps? Is there a script i can use or maybe if i chop them up before hand in gimp or something? any help or ideas would be great.

    I havent tried it myself but there is a plugin for importing tilemaps made with the "Tiled" map editor.<br />Maybe this works faster:<br />https://github.com/MrGreenTea/GodotTiledImporter

    this might be what your looking for... It's for spritemaps, but perhaps it can be of help for this too. I'm not sure however.

    Although it was a bit of pain at first, I actually quite like the TileMap system as it is, since it gives you so much control over every single tile.  It's a very robust, albeit time-consuming system. <br /><br />That GIMP plugin looks the most promising, although I imagine you still have to open the .tscn in order to add collision properties and such, but at least the importing process is much much easier.

    So i have tried both scripts now and i can't get anything to work. No idea what im doing. I also have no idea how to install plugins for Godot since there is no folder for it and there is no plugin tab in my preferences.

    <br />This video from Calum Knot might help with that.

    If you want to use Tiled www.mapeditor.org you can use my script https://github.com/alketii/tmx2tscn<br /><br />I made this game https://github.com/KOBUGE-Games/Herbi with that script
