Crossyards Editor

First of all I want to thank you for building a great isometric engine and making it free!

And I liked a lot of Crossyards Yard Editor. Could you make it available with the sheetengine or provide the source code (only the client side)? Would be the perfect tool to create a map for a game!

Thank you!

I am planning to release the crossyards yard editor as a separate project in the future, but this is yet to come.

In the meantime what you could do is use it to create maps/layouts in crossyards and use it's built-in copy-paste functionality (clipboard button at toolbar) to retrieve the sheets/objects you have created, and use the resulting JSON in your game. Sheetengine is not yet equipped with a JSON parser that could parse objects from JSON object literals, however if you take a look at the JSON you're given you'll surely be able to extract the necessary info from which you can define sheets/objects (you will see parameters like centerp, rot, canvas, etc.)
