@bulletdesigner

I noticed you are using 12x20 sprites like Dioxine... who used it only to see more clearly the beginning and the end of each sprite... and maybe to have easier calculations...

...but, the game will only render the 10x18 (from top left)... so it may be easier for you to switch to such size... instead of splitting the big units as seen in the attachment

PS: also, 1x1 units may be a bit too wide too... looks like they take more than 10 pixels sometimes

yes i noticed something was off, but i like the end result, like soldier stacking up and the last one get more pixels. But i will take the info into account if a make a new 2x2 prev  thks for the hand
