That looks fantastic. It greatly reminds me of how you create sprite based objects in Build for Duke Nukem, except that you can turn them on an angle aswell.

Thanks Seiseki and kullenberg.
I remember my feeble attempts at making maps for quake2, SiN, half-life and others years ago- was fun to just be able to walk around in places I made.
I went to a game meeting today and showed crocotile3d. Social gatherings always leave me feeling empty.

I've been working on the tilemap window- putting it into its own window. Seems to make it feel more like an app.

v1.0.8 now puts the tileset area into its own window with zoom ability and scrollbars. Window positions/sizes get saved when app closes.
Also added a context menu to access editing commands (right click in edit mode). This will make it a bit less reliant on the keyboard.
Check changelog for other changes, fixes.

I will need to create a new video at some point.

Major Error on OSX. I downloaded and opened the newest version. I doesn't show up in my Dock in the bottom or my opened applications in the "Force Quite" menu. ESC and Command/Control +Q are not closing the program. In desperation to close the program I pushed the fullscreen modes on the program and tile selector, I also can not collapse those. How do I close out of your program without restarting my computer?

PS: Feature suggestion, being able to change the palette of the selected tiles so that if you have a repeating tile with different colors you can just change the palette and not have a whole other tile. Old school.

Thanks for the report Cheetah, I sent you a pm with some questions.
I'll deactivate the dl for 1.0.8 osx version until I've figured out the issue.

Edit: Okay so if I understand- it was the fullscreen mode that was giving you trouble. I had the fullscreen key disabled, and I didn't think anyone would be able to get into fullscreen mode, but perhaps that is not the case on a mac. So I have enabled fullscreen key(f11), and I also made the Esc key for quitting(it should still ask if you are sure you want to quit).
Hopefully this will solve the issue of becoming stuck in fullscreen mode.
v1.0.8b is available.
edit: also changed a window setting in osx version- so it should show up in dock now.

Hey Alex, I saw the v1.0.19 update video, awesome stuff. Love what you did with the background  :D Not only does it look better, but it makes you feel like you're already in a world, and all you need to do is create stuff to fill it up!

Does the registration purpose include future updates?

Thanks Ryumaru! Yes, your registration key/activation will work with any future updates.

There has been a lot of Japanese people downloading the program lately. They seem to have a big interest in it. I'm thinking I'll try to offer a language option in the future.

Crocotile 3D v1.1.0 is now available!
This version adds new Paint tools. This helps with modeling objects and skinning them without leaving the program.
There is also new documentation included that outlines everything in the program.

This looks amazing. I have been tracking Crocotile since its early releases and it's great to see how it gets better and better.
