Crocotile 3D is a tool for creating 3d scenes with tiles. Think of it as creating 2d tilemaps with three dimensions.

Saving (over 100 tiles) and exporting is deactivated. To activate these, register a keycode at Crocotile3D.com

v.1.6.3 (April 7, 2021)

  • Added: Prioritize Gizmo option in the Settings > Edit. Sometimes the mouse may hover over a vertex and the Gizmo simultaneously. This option controls whether the Gizmo gets priority or the vertices gets priority when clicking.
  • Changed: Vertices won't become highlighted if Gizmo if hovered (if Gizmo has priority).
  • Changed: Exiting the program via shortcut key is now Alt+F4 instead of Esc.
  • Changed: Esc key will now close open panels.
  • Changed: Tab key will now work regardless of which area is focused (3d scene or side-panel).
  • Fixed: Rotations of objects using the Gizmo would not save correctly, and would also revert when using Transform tab. 
  • Fixed: Lock icons would display incorrectly on the export panel when exporting.
  • Fixed: Face selection color would revert to red when toggling off Active Edit Mode regardless of the face selection color setting.
  • Fixed: After rendering a Camera the background color settings would be overwritten.
  • Fixed: Gizmo will now move when pressing WASD keys (not when holding Shift).

v.1.6.2 (March 29, 2021)

  • Added: New 3d Gizmo! If Gizmo is enabled, it will appear when selecting vertices/faces/instances. (X to toggle on/off, Shift+X to toggle mode).
  • Added: Hotkey to snap Gizmo to nearest vertex mouse is hovering over (Alt+X).
  • Added: Hotkey to snap Gizmo to center of selection (Shift+Alt+X).
  • Added: Hotkey to move Gizmo without moving the selection (Shift).
  • Added: Hotkey to transform the Crosshair via the Gizmo (Alt). This allows you to quickly rotate or translate the Crosshair with the mouse.
  • Added: Rotate Interval input on the Tileset tab. This value controls the degree interval for the Gizmo when rotating.
  • Added: New hotkey to round vertices to the nearest pixel! Press O, or open the context-menu in Edit mode and select Vertices > Align vertices to the nearest pixel.
  • Added: Crosshair orientation inputs in the Transform tab! Use these to rotate and tilt the crosshair.
  • Added: Gizmo checkbox in the Transform tab to apply transformations relative to the Gizmo.
  • Added: Double-sided mode button on the Tileset tab. This will also serve as a visual indicator for the currently selected Tileset.
  • Added: Double-sided textures now save their setting in the project file.
  • Added: Color setting for Selected Faces in the settings. Go to Settings > Edit to change the color of selected faces.
  • Added: Ability to lock Objects/Cameras/Layers in the Scene tab! Locked items cannot be removed or edited. Everything within a locked Layer is also locked!
  • Changed: Round vertices to grid now uses Ctrl+O.
  • Changed: Snap crosshair to the grid now uses Alt+O to snap it to the grid. 
  • Changed: Enter key now also works in Draw mode for entering/exiting Object Edit Mode.
  • Fixed: When exporting .gltf/.glb files with Vertex Normals set to Flat, the normals would be incorrect.
  • Fixed?: When pressing multiple keys on international keyboards, the generated charcodes would cause the key bindings to stop working.
