    Hello. Long time ago...

    Here is my problem : I would like to create news tiles type (for [false] example lava, snowy sand, snowy cobblestones). I could obviously create sceneries and use them, but for large surface 1) It will be long and borring 2) They will now react correctly toward light (or won't react if I tick "don't light").

    Creating the art files was quite simple, they are technically perfect (based on real tiles using Artview). The matter is : how to add them in the game.
    1) I think have have to add it in Art/tilename.mes (see spoiler to see the document)
    // NOTE: any 3-letter tile name prefix can have flags after the
    // name, following a / character. Valid flags are:
    // b - tile blocks critter motion
    // f - tile blocks critter motion but allows flying
    // s - critters sink in this tile
    // i - icy or slippery tile, critters may fall down
    // n - natural (not man-made) tile
    // p - soundproof (or almost so), sounds are deadened thru this tile
    // After the name and any optional flags, put a space and a number. The
    // number is the sound type that footsteps will make on this type of
    // tile. Valid numbers are
    // 0 dirt
    // 1 sand
    // 2 snow
    // 3 stone
    // 4 water
    // 5 wood
    // For clarity, please place a number. If it is missing however, a 0
    // will be assumed.

    // Outdoor flippable tile names start here, at 0

    // Edges start here, at 400
    // Note you only have to list an edge once. If you add a line
    // called GRSDRT, you don't need a DRTGRS (although it's OK
    // to have it, it's redundant)

    But adding a number 31 (even a copy of a previous line) prevent WorlEd to run. So, where should I add it too ?
    In terrain/terrain.mes ?
    I guess there is other files that I did not found.

    Any idea/solution please ?
    Thanks you
