[Request] Increase maximum layout margin size

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Apr 13, 2015 3:30 am

@Ashley With tilemaps, rendering cells, and the 'recreate initial instances' action, creating and managing very large levels or metroidvania areas in single layouts is finally possible. However, we were surprised to find out that the maximum layout margin is only 10,000...preventing us from finishing some of our levels. Any chance this limit can be increased in the next build?

I woukd have thought that you would rather just increase the layout size in that case, but I agree this limitation, while not problematic, is just weird.
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

Not sure why you wouldn't make the layout larger, but there's no technical limit there, so I bumped it up to 100000 for the next beta.

Oh..lol. We've had the layout size at 10,10 because we're shaping the level with our own room zone objects, and forgot the margins are relative to the layout size. We've also been using Tiled for the longest time so eh. Either way it'll let us continue doing things this way if the margins are increased. Thanks!
