[quote="Kevin R Brown":2zbkiyoy][quote="SullyTheStrange":2zbkiyoy]Couldn't you divide it into sections and only load the parts on-screen or nearby? That would keep the size down. I dunno, though, maybe that won't work for whatever you're planning. Worth suggesting, at least.
Well, here's the thing: the 3200x3200 graphic was only for North America.
Oh, planet Earth. Why are you so large?
I'm sure I can cook-up some sort of plan B.
Not sure why that means my plan can't work -- if you keep track of the player's distance from each section of the gratuitously large background, you can get rid of the ones the player can't see. That way, no matter how huge the world may be, Construct only has to worry about the nearby ones.
Now, I'm no expert, so anyone can feel free to jump in and explain that better or explain why I'm completely wrong.
