[SURVEY] LEVEL EDITOR SURVEY

Postby Tobbi » 14 Jan 2017, 22:51

We're trying to improve the SuperTux level editor user experience.

For this, we have created a survey. More information can be found here:

Question

Postby Alzter » 03 Aug 2017, 12:05

How can you find the levels you make in the level editor, and how can you share and delete them?

On windows, the levels and addons are located in C:\Users\ YOUR USERNAME \AppData\Roaming\SuperTux\supertux2 .
The addons would be in the addons folder, and your levels would be in the levels folder.

Some worlds such as Bonus Island II, Test Collection, etc. are located in the place where you've installed them. (Note that these are the worlds that come with the game!)
By default, this would be: C:\Program Files\SuperTux\data\levels .

(And I don't know how it is for linux)

The way I upload my individual levels is basically copying the level to any folder (I use my documents folder) and then I add it to an archive and compress it a bit, so the file size isn't that big.

So, unless you're using Windows, this information is pretty useless.

Thanks! Is there a way to put a sector of a level into another level as a sector?
And is there a way to resize a level to the left instead of the right by adding more empty space on the left instead?

There's no way you can resize a level to the left. But try this:
Resize the level to how much you want added onto the left
Then select EVERYTHING by holding right click
And try and place it on the right (mouse has to be top-left corner of where you want it)
Then erase the leftover stuff on the left.
Sounds hard, but it should work if you do it correctly.

There is a way to copy a sector from a level to another level; but I've tried to do it before... and it didn't really work. But that was because of the mistakes I had made.
So just open the level through that directory in the AppData in my previous message, but not with supertux. With a normal text writer like Notepad. Then find the part where it defines the sector you want.

Here it is for me. Now just copy it all the way down...
AAJ.PNG

And you will see a few rounded brackets. Select all of them EXCEPT the last one!

Then now you can simply copy it into another level. (Note: In my case, the sector I'm copying is called "main." Because there already is a sector called main in this level, I'll have to rename it to something else.

I've pasted our sector right after the second-to-last round bracket so the game won't crash.
Now save the file, and open SuperTux.
The sector should appear!

How will I copy tiles and paste it somewhere else in the level?

Currently not possible, you can open the level file with an editor though.

Can we implement the option of copying and pasting tiles?

Use right-click to copy tiles. When you hold right-click and move your mouse, you can copy larger areas.

I would like to see an in-game scripting help page.
So you can see what the scripting commands do without leaving the game.
