I'm trying to make a simple map using FreeDinkEdit. I get selecting the map screens. Then I can change tile set pages. I can't seem to find some of the tiles. For example I'm trying to build a castle. I see there are castles in Dink already. I can't find the tile page that holds them. I used the ALT/SHIFT/CTRL to get extra tile pages. Are there others that I'm missing. In fact I don't see any structure type tiles expect for the inn. Is there any tutorials on making maps? Thanks for any help you can give.

Doh! I just saw a sticky with a tutorial on making a DMOD. I will take a look at that. If anyone has other advice or help that would be great. Thank you!

Check out this thread and look at Scratcher's "DinkEdit Keys" document. It's only the inn graphics that are half tiles and sprites. For the castle and everything else, they're loaded as sprites.

Thanks for the info. I did see after that the Castle was a Sprite. I didn't know you could select an image and that would open others you could pick. I assumed you picked the image and then you could use that as a sprite. Was surprised that it actually opens another list that contains other images you can use and it's part of a sequence. Thanks for the tutorial videos. They have been very helpful I'm still not done watching them all but I have learned a lot. Thanks!!
