A few weeks ago i decided to sort out the old harddrives that i’d been storing in my garage for a few years now. Some of them were at least 15 years old, and i was amazed that only one lost functionality. Anyway, while digging through the data (preserving old photos, code and documents on my novel nas), i came across a prototype of a web-based game i once made.
While not bothering you about the game (i’m actually thinking of picking up where i left it ;)). My prototype code included code to transform any 2d(square) tile, to isometric tiles, including slopes.
As i remember, the pain it was to find isometric tiles, i figured to share it with you. In the below iframe you’ll find the servlet version of the code. Just input any image file (width&height should be equal) below 500kb, and it’ll generate an isometric tileset for you.
Note: I think some improvements can still be made. I’ll probably update the tool as i start picking up the old project 🙂
For example, inputting the following:
Will result in a zip containg the isometric tile (128*64) including all slopes and a sample:
p.s. i’d be more than happy to know, if this actually helped someone on their hobby project. Feel free to reach out 🙂
