I am loving learning this program but the Tile Menu is so small that I can't see any detail. I have to keep placing tiles to figure out what they are. Any way to enlarge menu?

there aren't any way for it, the only way I can think off, bigger screen which
has a larger resolution, or if you want to slowly develope screenshot it, and
paste it in photoshop, krita, gimp etc to zoom in.

another way that might work if exist, is a tool to zoom in for the screen, but requires
scrolling while placing tiles, which is also not really efficient.

but it depends what exactly your goal is, and how much time you want to set.

if tiles are to small for details, you can also try to use parallax, so you can zoom
in while creating your maps?

Windows has a built in screen magnifier. If you are using windows, just type it into the start area to turn it on or off.
Standard Setting is 200% but you can adjust it to your liking.

Hi,
I kind of found it a strain to look a these tiles. So, I did a little fiddling around to improve the size.

If you are using Windows, you may be able to increase the size at which the program displays through compatibility settings.

First, open up File Explorer and find your executable.
Second, open up the context menu on the executable and open the Properties menu.
Third, Click the Compatibility Tab.
Fourth, click the Change High DPI settings.
Fifth, on the High DPI Scaling Override, tick the checkbox and change it to "System".

This provided a small, but noticable visual increase in size to the program, but you might find one of the above solutions better for your eyes.

Even though I spent 100's of dollars on my game already. I think I might just have to give it away for free. Since I haven't heard back from people if I could use some of their graphics. Even from a global mod here. Maybe I can make a donation thing.
you know, some days you get resentful that game dev is even considered a "fun job" and other days it's like, welp, time to roll up my sleeves and code these molotov cocktails
If you suck at playing trumpets, that is probably why.
Been sick with a stomach virus for seven days now. Not going to work tomorrow because I'm still contagious according to my doctor.
Much as I love my job, I really hate playing "office politics". It would be nice if I didn't have to pretend to be someone else all day long.
