In-Depth Information
The new map will be completely empty, and there's no tileset loaded that you can draw
from. You can add a tileset by selecting Map New Tileset from Tiled's menu. This
opens the New Tileset dialog (shown in Figure 10-6 ), where you can browse for the
proper tileset image. A tileset is just a name for an image containing multiple tiles with
equal spacing, so you could also call it a texture atlas containing only images of the
same size.

Note The function Map Add External Tileset is used only to import a previ-
ously exported tileset to share the same tileset with multiple TMX maps. You
can export a tileset by right-clicking the tileset view in the lower right-hand
corner of the Tiled window and then choosing Export Tileset As.
You'll use the dg_grounds32.png tileset. These tiles were drawn by David E. Ger-
