sparkly_stars, map background automapper

Post by mind »

Hi,

I present you a way to create star-filled night skies with a tileset and automapper instead of a background quad.

Pros:
- lowest file-size: 10kB vs 60-400kB
- tile-layers seem to give better fps compared to quads

Done

If you want to have more stars in the background, simply create another layer with sparkly_stars.
