Week 62: Finishing 45° autotiling corner-cases

A screenshot showing a bunch of very irregular surface connections between 90-degree and 45-degree angles.
So many weird surface-angle combinations to consider!

tl;dr: I had a short week, but I fixed most of the remaining of the 45° autotiling corner-cases.

What happened last week?


  • Still fixing the autotiling logic and tile-set art for all the various 45° corner-cases.

Laundry list

  • Continue implementing my corner-type-annotation-image tileset system.
    • Continue debugging 45-degree quadrants.
      • Fallback adjustments.
      • More tileset quadrants, with new neighbor-connection combinations.
      • Corrections to target corner-type calculation logic.
    • Condensed some more of the tileset, by taking advantage of the new support for explicit internal connection annotations.
    • Added some new helper functions in CellProximity for considering whether there are any 90-90-concave-clipped corners that would have the same effect as a 90 side.
    • Added support for resetting all cells in the tilemap. This makes it much easier to sync to the latest autotiling changes.
    • Change neighbor-connection priority order to be self, h, v, h-ex, v-ex, d, d-ex, h2, v2.
    • Add support for one more neighbor-connection direction: external_(h|v)d2.
    • Add one more missing corner type.
    • Create a separate repo for all of my recent work on Surface Tiler.
    • Start adding proper Godot Plugin features for the Surface Tiler library.
    • Add a couple plugin buttons for recalculating tilemap cells.

What's next?

  • Finish fixing the final bits of 45° autotiling.
  • Write documentation for all the different parts of my corner-match autotiling system.
  • Publish my corner-match autotiling system as a stand-alone package in the Godot Asset Library.

🎉 Cheers!
