New Update Just Released - Sprite Browser!
I just deployed an update I have been working a while, and I hope you like it
A few new features, and a few bug fixes:
- New Sprite Browser
- Select sprites from all your games instead of just the current one
- Some more defaults sprites (terrain)
Indie Only - more than 6,000 additional sprites from professional artists
- New text rendering - better interface text on low-resolution screens
- New Message target - “send to last raycast”
- Space bar shortcut for dragging in level editor
- Space bar shortcut for dragging in sprite editor
- Color behavior now updates even if nothing on the screen changes
- Newly created objects now retain their display order
- Globals no longer activate inside of destroyed objects
Please try it out and let me know what you think below.
Never realized my screen was so low resolution, it looks so much better now
thanks for the update! this is great!
The new terrain sprites are amazing, @grazer who did them?
Hey @Pixel_Name1, I’m glad you like them.
I commissioned JPKotzeGames to make them a long time ago, but they were waiting for a sprite browser update before I added them
Omg I’ve been waiting for that last bug fix for forever
I don’t remember when I asked for this feature, but I know I did. Thanks so much grazer!
feel like im still recovering from the previous sprite gui update
omg sorry but the new font looks horrible
(probably bc im very used to the old one)
Can you post or DM me a screenshot? The font is the same (DIN) - just a bit bolder. It should look much better on lower resolution screens, about the same quality as before on higher dpi (or retina) screens. I did a bunch of testing to try and get to a good compromise, but it’s possible that more tweaking will follow.
(in particular it does not look great if your display is at 125% scaling, but that didn’t look very good before either)
well, it doesn’t necessarily look bad, but just looks out of place lol
the spacebar shortcuts are awesome tho, im already using them lol
I think that looks pretty OK, and I’m guessing it probably looked worse before
Maybe you just need a little time to get used to the updated rendering?
I actually like the new look of the texts. I think I had mine on low resolution, so the text looked small and skinny before. These ones are a lot easier to see and read.
I like the new font - however, maybe it’d be better to have it as an option? Either way, it’s honestly not a huge deal and it is still easier to read:D
I didn’t even REALIZE how chunky the old text format was until I saw this lol. Great work grazer, thanks for updating and improving the engine over the years.
actually, in the second day using it, it looks much better
Whoah, this is a fantastic update, and thank you especially for the raycast message option!
