I use Tiled for making maps. I have sprites that are more than one tile high, and so whenever they are in front or behind of some objects more than one tile high tiles will be displayed in front of the player. I am looking for a way to give certain tiles 'height' such that only characters of that height could appear in front of those tiles.
Here is a screenshot showing my problem (the sprite is doge because it was the first image I found):
The same tiles don't always equate to the same height, so I can't give tiles set height. I've thought of one way to give tiles height, and that is to have a (hidden) layer that describes the height level certain tiles are at.
However, that solution would be slow and painful to implement. I'm wondering if there's a better way to do it.
A few other potential ideas I've had: Have a tile layer for each height, hackily guess the height of a tile at runtime based on tiles below (would be buggy) but I think that there would surely be a better way to do it.
