Ultimate World Creator is a new program for creating custom maps for your own games using custom tilesets. With Ultimate World Creator, you can make 16 x 16 tile-based maps with more functionality quicker than ever.
Use Ultimate World Creator to make maps for your own pre-existing engines. Create and load your own tilesets and use them to build entire worlds. Then, just by editing one tileset image, change everything with the click of a button. The quick, efficient interface and shortcut keys along with the advanced editing features like autotile make Ultimate World Creator one of the fastest and easiest ways to make levels for your games.
This software includes many advanced features such as using multiple layers, multiple tilesets, ability to add objects and special events, and even collision masking.
Special editing features include, but are not limited to: being able to fill a selection of tiles, selecting and placing a range of tiles, and Autotile which automatically sets edge and corner pieces from using just one tile (works on platform or overhead type tiles!).
Some advantages of using a program like this include faster level creation time, smaller file sizes, ability to change graphics on an entire game just by changing tilesets, ease of use compared to other level creation methods, etc.
I have decided to release the full version of Ultimate World Creator completely free of charge.
However, I am accepting donations for those of you who would like to support the project. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. There is a paypal donate button at http://www.ultimateworldcreator.x10.mx - there is no minimum donation value.
I will be spending the next couple of days preparing the full version release and it will be online sometime next week between Monday, November 14 and Friday, November 18.
I will update this page and the website when the full version goes online.
A Demo Version of UWC is now online for beta testing. Some features have been disabled. The example file that explains how to integrate the UWC map files into your own games is not included with this demo.
