[Question] How to inherit default zone tile

Is it possible to inherit the default zone tile colors for each zone, i.e. res (green, blue green) com (blue, purple) ind (yellow, orange)

What have you exactly mean by that? If you want to change the colors you would have to override the whole zone, but I think it wouldn't really work. You may also place your own texture in the game using some coords (if I'm right).

See the content_zone.json in resources and use the frames statements for each appropriate zone is a possibility.

This is what I want to inhertit by default, so that I will not have to create and recolor a lot of files for my custom zones.
Image

I would want to avoid having to declare this a lot in the .json and lessen the amount of .png
"frames":[{"bmp":"zone1x1.png"}],
Is it doable?

By inherit, what I mean is that I will not have to create my own .png for Image (and just use the one available in the game files and just declare/type it in my .json

Code: Select all

"frames":[{"bmp":"zone1x1.png"}],
//you could do this to make it look like the game zone.|v|,
//"frames":[{"x":320,"y":0,"w":32,"h":16}],"map color":{"r":82,"g":180,"b":40},
See content_zone.json here:https://theotown.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=78067#p78067

I would also suggest that you put all your zones in a category within the zone category. :)

or you can steal frames
"frames":[{"steal":"$zoneidIdontremember66"}],
