I need 2d editor (Windows) for game like rpg. Mostly important features for me:

  1. Load tiles as classes with attributes, for example "tile1 with coordinates [25,30] is object of class FlyingMonster with speed=1.0f";
  2. Export map to my own format (SDK) or open format which I can convert to my own;

As good extension feature will be multi-tile brush. I wanna to choose one or many tiles into one brush and spread it on canvas.

It looks like you're looking for a map editor, and there are several questions here which relate to that:

  • Something like Tiled is good for a tile based game.
  • Something like GLEED2D is good for a non-tile based game, has XNA hooks, but exports to a plain xml format.
  • Something like tIDE is also good for tile based game with XNA.

I believe all of these support adding additional properties to specific elements within the map.
