Am I able to make multiple worldmaps for an episode?

Postby Suckerman7 GM » Thu Aug 13, 2020 3:57 am

I know this question sounds kinda dumb, but I really want to know if it's possible. Since in my project, I plan to make 8 different worlds with worldmaps, sometimes the tiles I would use for different worlds would clash together which I fear right now. But, now that I think of it: Is it possible to make multiple worldmaps which I would access from warp pipes? (If I make separate levels for warp pipes which they would lead to different worldmaps) Or, am I stuck on one map? I want to know the answer please.

No and yes.
No because the wld file is what defines the episode (name, star count, start level). One map per episode.
Yes because back in 2015 MAGLX2 has circumvented this by setting up a system in lunalua wherein in certain warps, code is executed that loads the player into a different episode entirely. MAGLX2 is like those multi-disc PlayStation games.

What I recommend is planning ahead and making use of chunking.

Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

All my assets from packs and episodes are free to use for non-Novaverse levels and projects, as long as proper credit is given.
