pyTile - 0.1.2

Timothy Baldock (entropy)



Isometric engine for a future transport sim game (think Simutrans, or Transport Tycoon)

Right-click and drag to move the screen
"h" - selects terrain modification mode
    Left click and drag to raise/lower a tile.
    "s" - toggles smooth terrain modification
    "i","o","k","l" - change size of modifier tool
"t" - toggles track-drawing mode
    Left click to place track start point, click again to place track end point

That's all it does so far.


--This is an intermediate release, will probably crash a fair bit!--

This release is actually quite a long way from the last one, additions include:

- Smooth terrain modification (toggle with "s" key)
- Terrain size change ("k" and "l" to enlarge selection, "o" and "p" to reduce)
- Multiple tool modes (only 2 tools so far, "h" to modify terrain height, "t" to draw tracks)
- Track drawing using the bezier drawing engine (still experimental, click to start drawing, click again to end drawing, only works within one tile for now)
- Text sprite drawing class (experimental, doesn't do much for now)
- New licence, pyTile is now released under the BSD license

Known issues:
- Crashes sometimes
- Drawing order of tracks isn't correct
- Drawing artifacts with some track combinations

Behind the scenes there are many speed and stability improvements.
