Never delete a tile in map editor with an empty tile! Use the rubber icon instead!

Patroid send me email asking any unit image, i will send them ( i thought i have already sent them 2u)

Hi
It look like you need a simple tutorial!
You did only opened tiled and then
you filled in the icons.But first you must
create a second layer then select the first
layer and make the map then select the
second layer and fill in the units.
Then it is enough to save it as
an image and send it to daniel/post it.

If it isnt clear post me a mail adress and i send
you a small tutorial viedeo or we skype and i show
it with screenrecording!!

there is a layer option in the up menu. chose add layer. Select layer 2 (you can see the layer names under the tileset choser) . then place the unit tiles on the ready map.
It works fpr me. however, there are some bugs when it mixes and makes you unable to switch layer. then exit Tiled, and start again.

Daniel: Is there a new tileset pack with the newer units available?

P.S. What is the "editor" mentioned earlier in migrating old tilesets to new ones?
Thanks!

New terrain are 32x32 .png files. Just be sure they fit/transition with the old. Email Daniel for more info.

I made a really stupid tutorial (it's not really good) a while back. You may not need one: you might try just messing around on the software - it's fairly simple once you figure it out. But my dumb tutorial is in pdf and Publisher (MS), but the file is too big to post here. If you want it, I can try to get it up here, though.

More rules and instructions are posted earlier in this thread.
Thanks!

Help, I am learning how to do this, but it makes no sense.

Why do half the tiles have black circles?! Will those show up in game?

you must not use black circled ones.
which rock? because some of the great rocks moved to units layer.

OHHHHHH ok I see thanks. Yeah, I wanted to use a big boulder thing, but it is in the units layer.

And btw if I am just making a map for multiplayer/random game use, do I need to have a unit layer, or can I just make the tilemap?
