Level Creation Ideas
« on: December 12, 2009, 13:47:33 »
Weeeeell, for a start, after examining the demo's file structure, it appears that the game is completely expandable! And the endings to the current level are quite weird/creepy.

Post your ideas and attempts here!

I'm really looking forward to see what happens when the editor comes out.

I'm hoping level editing won't be quite as hard as Nifflas has made it out to be if I just want to make environmental levels without puzzles.  I would LOVE to make environmental levels for this game.  (I haven't even finished what's in the demo yet, but I already love the game.)

^ If you take a look at the files in the directory of the main level, you'll have an idea of what to expect already; as Nifflas said, the level editor is quite easy to use (you'll probably use it to make the map structure, place tiles and objects and little else), but there's a lot of work to be done with text files.

The one thing I think I'll find most intimidating about level editing in Saira is the 11 independently scrolling layers.  I can't imagine how there could possibly be an easy way to manage that, because not only is 11 layers a lot, but they're probably all different sizes, too (otherwise they couldn't scroll at different speeds).
(secretly hoping nobody will mention the object compendium)

Thanks for mentioning that here, Nifflas.  I don't always check all those other forums up there, and would have completely missed that it was released!
