Structure Alignment Tool
« on: August 21, 2017, 05:06:33 AM »
Something that's been extremely painful to do is aligning structure sprites to the tile grid properly. So, I finally built a small tool to help with that. It's not perfect, it's a little flaky, but it does the job.





Mostly this is a tool to help developers but I'll include it with the next release of OutpostHD for anybody that feels like playing with it.

Is there anything I can do on my end with the graphics to help with this? Or is it mostly to do with packing the sprites for use in game?

Actually the way you're rendering the new structures allows me to drop it in place with little to no modifications especially now that I'm not making any additional adjustments to the graphics.

This tool will be useful for tweaking animations as they are developed and for tweaking any extra tall buildings there may be (mine shaft comes to mind).
