I want to generate some terrain bitmaps on my own, then bring them into Tiled for further editing. Can that be done? Like I would have a bitmap where each pixel in the bitmap would represent a tile in Tiled. Surely that is something people have done with this program before? I looked at the types of files that Tiled can open, but it doesn’t look like any bitmap formats. Alternatively is there any simple code example that would generate a .tmx file from a given bitmap?
Note I am not talking about the much harder thing that apparently is available, where it automatically generates a tile set from a game image. I’m just talking about converting a grid of numbers into the appropriate Tiled map format – and it would just use whichever tile set you load to go with it…
