(I'm not sure I'm on the good section for that sorry if i am not ^^")

Hey ! Since I fixed my bug with Doodads, I was wondering two questions while I was using it !

-First one : Does Doodads have a limite ?
-> I was wondering about that because i was planning to use a pretty lot of doodads in my project (and also animated one)
so i was wondering would it crash ? would my project be very very large (100go+??)

-Second question about utilities : Is there a way to change layer several doodads at the same time (like all level 1 to level 5 (i messed up a lot x) ) ? can we create several at the same time ?
can we delete multiple doodads at the same time ? can we replace doodads after placing them ?..
(ok there is more than 2 questions haha)

Thanks for reading ! If you have any ideas please answer me !

Doodads are, as far as I'm aware, designed to be lightweight in terms of their data, so you should be able to have a *lot* of them on screen at once before you start noticing any performance issues. Exactly what that number is depends on what system the game is running on, so there isn't a definite answer to that one.

I'm not sure what you mean by "create several at the same time", and I'm pretty sure deletion is a one-at-a-time thing as well. I think you can set a doodad to use a different graphic while keeping the same settings.

about create several doodad i wanted to say like the right click in the default program, to put several tileset (in this case doodads) at the time or another way ^^

and thanks for answer! i hope they are very light because i'm using thousand and thousand by map xD
(is it ok?)

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be, but really the only way you'll find out for sure is to try it.

I think doodads can only be placed one at a time, but you can expand the number of tiles being placed at once from a tileset to place larger objects.

how does everybody even finish anything

i have like 5 projects in the backburner and it's just so sad that i probably won't get to finish all or maybe even any of them
Did you know that 90% of people in the world use the number in their sentence as they see fit?
It's been a long time since I was here but I have a lot of updates... btw I am teaching again about game programming and game design in some schools here in Brazil hahahaha It's good to see kids and teens learning this kind of thing!
welp, I literally can't continue working on ALEX now that my MZ trial is up (unless I somehow place in the jam which I don't remotely deserve to for my unfinished crap) so I am back on my bullshit
