Creating Custom Doodads#
Sketchy Maze is designed to be modder friendly and provides tools to help you create your own custom doodads to use in your levels.
doodad (Command Line Tool)#
Your copy of the game should have shipped with a
doodad command-line tool
bundled with it. On Windows it's called
doodad.exe and should be in the same
folder as the game executable. On Mac OS, it is located inside the .app bundle.
doodad tool provides a command-line interface to create and inspect
doodad and level files from the game. You'll need to use this tool, at the very
# (the $ represents the shell prompt in a command-line terminal) # See metadata about a doodad file. $ doodad show /path/to/custom.doodad # Create a new doodad based on PNG images on disk. $ doodad convert frame0.png frame1.png frame2.png output.doodad # Add and view a custom script attached to the doodad. $ doodad install-script index.js custom.doodad $ doodad show --script custom.doodad
