I'm new to mobile apps development and to Corona SDK. My goal is to make a city builder type of game, but really simple.
I first looked into Corona Isometric Map Template but that's probably too complex for me and it doesn't seem to work with the latest version of Corona. I'm now looking into Ponytiled but I am not sure what I want to do is achievable.
I'm aiming at a game looking like Assembly Line (see here) but Ponytiled seems to be used to create the map only, I cannot find a way to add elements to the map (the buildings, roads...).
So far I don't have much code, mostly a mix of Ponytiled and the Corona's example.
I guess my questions are:
- Is Ponytiled adapted for such game?
- How can I (with Corona) add objects (buildings, roads...) to a map/scene? Basically I want to add a button "build house" and be able to define the location of the building on the map...
- How can I save the scene locally on the phone (or with the simulator in the first place)?
Any direction to the right tools/documentation would be appreciated. I haven't found anything so far.
