Before anything, I just bought Pyxel and I'm in love with it, quite productive and has a ton of little features. Here is my list of user-features I would like to see:

- Do you plan on supporting TMX tilemaps format?
- Is it possible to add custom properties to the tiles and the tilemaps?
- Is it possible to add fake objects with custom properties?

    Hi TraxNet,
    Yes, I'm considering supporting TMX tilemaps, nothing definite yet though.
    It's not possible to have custom properties or objects yet, so a dedicated tilemap editor like Tiled is recommended for level editing if you need those features.
  • I would recommend adding at least custom properties to tiles.   I just wrote a quick and dirty python script to convert the XML output of PyxelEdit to a .tmx file (attached), but this is an interim solution and one that I don't like because it means I have to walk away from my PyxelEdit project file once I start adding properties in Tiled (or lose the properties for even a minor change in PyxelEdit...yuck).

    PyxelEdit has features that Tiled does not...and a much better interface.  If you add the ability to compete with Tiled in format, you have a better tool.  I would pay 2x (or more, again) for a tool that will save me having to lose my work by going to Tiled.  I need to use .tmx files for my flow, at least for now.

    Hi, I recently bought Pyxel Edit - I really like it. I'm a programmer and I work with game engines, such as Phaser and Cocos2d-x. But, as has been said, it is very desirable to be able to export to TMX format.
    And we still need the same functions as in the Tiled editor - it's the ability to place collision zones and the ability to create objects with custom properties. I know that this is a lot of work, but I would also be able to pay more money in this case. In any case, thanks for the great tool and apologize for my english.
