Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hey Oculus350,

The best way to do this is to use a 2D Array of an Enumerator which specifies what the tile is.

First, you should make a Enumerator with all the types of tiles there can be, then make a Structure, which has an array of these Enumerators, then somewhere else, make another array which holds an array of these Structures.

To write to this 2D Array, you can use a For Loop to iterate through every tile, and find the correct X and Y coordinates to map to the array inside the Structure, and the array of Structures.

Then to read and create the appropriate, you can just do the reverse of the above step.

Hopefully that can give you some ideas.
