    Hello!

    How many tiles do i need to have to create a terrain with this tool?
    Also,does RTS work with the terrain tiles included in this pack?Can you provide a demonstration of how to set up these type of terrain correctly in RTS?

    There is holidays i think.

    Rotorz is a system working with any 3d tiles if they are well made designed in a consistent way; this pack should work; but you can t ask to rotorz author to buy and test all 3d tiles pack available in the asset store for you.

    This tool like auther tiling tools are designed mainly for people that know to make 3d or 2d tiles.

    I didn't asked anyone to buy anything in the asset store to test for me.
    I'm asking the author to provide a example of how to set up these kind of tiles in RTS.

    I do know how to create tile sets.

    ok; no offense.
    If you look at some youtube videos ; there is some example showing how to set up 3d tiles (for example adjusting prefab rotation or scaling).

    I have some improvments ideas for Rotorz for the 3D View mode :
    - Full 3D X,Y,Z grid creation (instead of creating multiple Rotorz grids)
    The ability to create a Grid with X,Y,Z dimensions , be able to select some Y layer and only view and work on that one
    - Visiblity runtime system : It would display the tiles around the player only, this would be usefull for very large worlds using Rotorz tiles when used in full 3D view.
    This view system could be used also to edit the 3D world if it is big to not crash memory needs and also to keep a good frame rate working on the large world.

    This would make possible to use Rotorz use for big worlds and other usages (I have already some game ideas if that would happen)
    What do you think ?

    This not working so well in Unity 5.3.2. sometimes it randomly paints objects next to the one I painted. this means I have to keep switching between eraser and paint brush.
    Also sometimes the switch from brush to eraser "X" key doesn't work.

    so, i just bought the asset and its really great until now. iam mostly interested in the runtime level editor stuff so i have some questions regarding that.
    1. ) is the hatguy_level_designer the only scene that is demonstrating the runtime editor or iam i blind? :D
    2.) the only thing i am missing right now is a indicator where my cursor is?
    3.) is there a more detailed runtime demo planed?

    You can represent the location of your cursor however you choose; you might want to use a sprite or an object. To compute the position of the active tile (given the tile index) you can use TileSystem.WorldPositionFromTileIndex.

    You can use the same immediate preview mechanism that is used when painting in-editor.
    Click here for a usage example.

    The author perhaps doesn't want to continue support the plugin.
    This is what i dislike about plugins and why i ask often for more stuff integrated in the editor.

    It may have something to do with the tile editor Unity is working on.

    Just found out that author has ended support for this asset because it didn't make enough money for him to go on. Sadly another excellent asset that has had its day. Good luck with author, it was such a good tile editor. I have tried Unity tile editor too, but it doesn't come anything close to Rotorz. Very sad indeed.

    This tool can still be used for 2017.2, but there is a bug with Unity at the moment. It has been reported but no-one knows when Unity will fix it... hopefully makes to 2017.3

    I have found rotorz web site to be down. This is really sad, because now, I can't view its document. There is doc source in the git hub, but I can't seem to make the yaml format to build into something that I can look into.. :(
