Hey there, I am attempting to re-create old school 2nd Edition Dungeons and Dragons modules and I just started today. I am just laying down tiles to create the map of the dungeon and I've ran into a very obvious issue that seems it should have a simple fix:

If I have two hallways running parallel to one another, how do I create a wall inbetween them without taking up an entire block of space?

Ideally there would be a single very very thin black wall separating the two hallways. I've attempted to scour the forums and find a simple solution but all I've been able to dig up involves editing image files with gimp or some such. I just want a simple impassable black line that I can paint on the edges of my hallways so that you cant walk through them.

Any help is appreciated.

You really can't. You could have it visually by creating a tile for sheets B-E that is transparent except for the black line you need and place that. However, the collision will still be 1 tile wide.

This is all to say, unless there is some solution (plugin or something) that I've not heard of.

Gotcha, well thanks for the quick reply. I suppose I'll just double the map size so that I have the extra space.

there is plugins. you'd need a custom collision plugin. Quixos' plugins seem to be the most popular and stable. youd need his movement and collision map plugins. https://quxios.github.io/plugins

Cyclone map editor by Hudell and movement plugins would also work if you have MZ (they might even be in one maps plugin, not sure I have MV which these plugins are currently broken. I've heard MZ one is working fine though. Cyclone map editor is easier than Quixos and easy collisions. you can do just the edge of a tile. plus more in depth map editing. Both movement plugins allow for diagnal and psuedo pixel movement too (move by half, quarter or eighth increments). Oh, and each uses different collisions. Cyclone is on the editor and pretty simple while quixos is using a collision map (image with drawn collisions) and other types that is more involved but more accurate.

 Cyclone Map Editor also exists for MV, not just MZ.
I use it myself for map making but the collisions are bugged and it's being completely ignored by the maker. Map collisions are fine but you can interact with events. at least when using smaller than full tile collisions and pixel movement.

Alternatively you could get tricky with directional passability.
with that you can have two different tiles next to each other where both are generally passable but the player still can't go into the direction to cross over, and make those tiles include a thin wall.

however that will require you to use up several B/E-tiles for that.

It does sometimes get a little embarrassing that I often come here to ask for help with something and seldom have anything to actually show for it. If there is one thing though I can commend myself for, it's for sticking with an idea I've been tinkering with for this long now and gradually making headways. Even though I've been reserved about my progress, I can say I'm farther now than where I initially started.
I'm gonna put my project on pause for a tiny bit so I can explore the engine outside of it... Winging it can only get you so far LMFAO
Have seen some of my favorite people here posting and helping others with questions today -- love to see it!
Haven't been on here actively in awhile, project is going strong my biggest issue is the STORY, i'm refining the plot and learning so much i decided to take a writers class to improve even more but the programming and functionality of the game is stepping up nicely!
