Editing Entities with an image editor?
« on: February 06, 2011, 08:07:58 pm »

I think the entities are metadata in the .png or something, so would it be possible to edit that data with an image editor like Gimp?

step 1. download my improved garrison builder version
step 2. load any map
step 3. click save entities to file
step 4. using wordpad, open up the entity file
step 5. save and reopen garrison builder /w old map
step 6. unload entities
step 7. load entities
step 8. recompile


but when you read the entity file, it'll just a huge block of text, not really useful for any actual editing

I mean directly editing the entities from the image editor, I know Gimp can edit some metadata.

maybe you can edit the meta data, but again it's a giant block of text and not useful for editing

So, you would need something that can read it correctly, right?
