Microsoft MakeCode

❓ Ask the MakeCode team anything! [CLOSED]

that little light thing you used in the mouse hamilton, can you put it on tiles?

There was a hamilton game? or do you mean Hamlet? If you mean hamlet, then I don’t think you can put it on tiles, unless you make a sprite for each tile and add that effect to the sprite.

You can use the small tilemaps extension (used for 8x8 tilemaps) ( riknoll/small-tilemaps)

or you can use the smaller time maps extension. It works for 4x4, 2x2, and 1x1. I do not recommend using it for 1x1. It gets laggy. (also, I don’t really understand how to use it. I personally think the next option is better) ( 4x4 tilemap extension )

or you can use my 1x1 tilemap. Beware: I made this for a 1x1 tilemap landscape and it has what is called “auto-jump”, where you automatically climb hills with a 1x1 pixel slope. This project is made in blocks so it isn’t complicated. Here is the project:

(If you want to use my 1x1 tilemap, then you will probably want to know how it works and how to use it. Just ask if you have any questions. Otherwise, I hope this post helps!)

They got renamed to Game Maker’s Toolkit (GMTK) (i think)


This is an alternative… but not as good as @richard’s is (if you miss, then it gives a “:(” otherwise a “:)”

Can you stream a “How to make a 3D game tutorial”?
I’ve been wanting to make some after seeing one in the community games category.
