Map Building

Welcome to the WorkAdventure map building documentation!

This guide will provide you with instructions on how to edit and create maps for WorkAdventure, allowing you to customize your virtual spaces and create engaging interactive experiences. There are two primary methods for editing maps: using the inline editor and utilizing Tiled.

Inline Map Editor

The inline map editor is a user-friendly tool that enables you to quickly place objects, furniture, and define areas of interest within your map.

In order to use the inline map editor, you must be inside your map and logged with an account that has the "admin" or "editor" tag. The map editor icon will be visible in the action bar at the bottom of the screen.

For more extensive customization and advanced map editing, you can utilize Tiled, a powerful offline map editor. Tiled provides additional features such as placing floors, walls, and the ability to incorporate scripts for dynamic behavior.
