    I had a question, since empty tiles are automatically blocked - is there any scripts available to customize this? I know I can map the floor and display a picture using another script above the tiles, but that just seems hacky to me. Any suggestions to resolve this problem?

    Thanks.

    I was thinking about this, and always wondered if you setup a B,C,D or E tile set with two "blank" tiles - one passable and one not - if you could 'colour' your map with them. Anyone comment?

    That's pretty much how I always did my maps, Genii. To make it easier, you can just use a semi-transparent graphics while mapping, then re-import the tileset with the blank graphic after you're done. :)

    I always ran into an issue with the editor bugging up things whenever I tried to use a transparent tile.

    I figured it out, this can be closed.
