Change Tiled coordinate system to left bottom?


(GRay) #1

Does Tiled supporting change coordinate system?
Default coordinate system for Tiled is “y-down” left top is origin (0,0)
I can’t change coordinate system to “y-up” left bottom is origin (0,0)
If it can be, it will be perfect for example LibGDX or other Frameworks used origin in “left bottom”.

Because, i draw object in Tiled, with giving X, Y, Rotation values
then when i go to my game code i am very confused because coordinate values is different.

I want to say summarize can you add optional button that change coordinate origin and object origin to left bottom (Cartesian coordinate system)?

It would be possible to add an option for this, but of course it adds complexity and I have found other things more important so far. There is already an issue about such an option on GitHub:

I’d like to see an option for this in Tiled; everything in libGDX already uses y-up by default.

I vote for this.
I’m also working with libGDX and plotting points would be so much easier with this (even a y-up indicator at the bottom left of the editor window would suffice).
It tends to be a pain giving ids to those marker objects.
