Today, I tried using a parallax map on my game. It only reminded me of how much I hate such technique. Sep 23, 2019

        @Darth Equus I hear you, parallax mapping can look great but making the maps is such a headache! Not to mention how it bloats your project folder.

        @The Stranger Larger size, more work if I need to change something, and it feels like extra work for something I can do with standard tile maps. Wanted to give it a fair chance, but no, it's just not for me.

      So... where can I post pictures and videos of my project to ask for feedback and showcase progress?

      I somehow detest parallax mapping. Beyond not allowing one to make changes vs a regular map, I don't know why.

        That's why we have a tile-based editor. You don't have to use parallax mapping if you don't want to. Sure there are some things parallax mapping makes better, but a good tile mapper can also get great results.

        It's important to keep the file that you used to create the parallaxed map. That way you can go back and make changes whenever you want. It's a bit more tedious but it's just what you gotta do. But, I understand where you're coming from too. Each to their own. :)
