Having a problem with The Xtra Editors for Mac



Square tiles!!! EASY!!

Now here is a glitch that i have found, and used alot! If you really really need it, calm down and have patience. You need 2 things!

-ANY STAREDIT, original from disc works too.
-Ability to scroll in the editor

YUP thats it.

Here is what you do.

select some terrain of the same type on the map. spread some in an area.
then, select a different terrain type and spread it on, BUT while you are spreading it ontop scroll, if want in same spot. After that. click to exit the scrolling glitch. and undo two times.

Start a new map, 64x64 Badlands.
select Dirt and brush the area you want square. Select the different terrain you want to be square beside, lets do water. select water, and click then scroll, let go of the clicker and finish what you want. (when scroll glitch is in effect you do not need to hold the mouse button down) click again to exit the glitch. Command+z until it is squarish.

This glitch is not 1 tile X 1 tile
it is 1 Tile X 2 tiles but still squarish

If you do this enough it will glitch the whole map and you get the 2x1 tiles through the whole thing. BUT BE CAREFUL AND CHOOSE WHEN TO DO IT. Once in the square tile mode there is no going back, even if u reload the map.

I also have stacking units glitch :) which owns.

I agree. The only thing that Starforge could improve would be its trigger system. I've never been able to fully grasp it.

    My boyfriend is super into Bethesda modding so I'm probably going to join him in that for a bit, then move on to making mobile/browser games.

    My one game was basically Among Us but you sabotaged an entire medieval city simulated drastically inefficiently with dynamic NPCs :S

    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches

    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?

    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while

    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \

    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.
