The Tilesheets extension adds a parser function to select a set item in an image of tiles, or sprites. It uses the OreDict extension, so that should typically be installed as well. Tilesheets can be any size, but they are typically "16, 32". The size indicates the size of the individual tiles (as in 16x16 and 32x32 in this case).

Special pages

  • CreateTileSheet - Create a new tilesheet by supplying a mod abbreviation, the sizes of the tilesheets separated by commas, and a list of tile coordinates with their according tile names.
  • SheetList – Lists all tilesheets on the wiki.
  • SheetManager – Used to edit a single tilesheet's data.
  • TileList – Lists all tiles on the wiki.
  • TileManager – Used to edit a single tile's data.
  • TileTranslator – Used to edit the translation data (name and description, in any language code) of a given tile.
  • ViewTile – Used to show a specific tile at all of its sizes. The tiles are displayed in a table. It provides no forms, so the tile entry ID must be supplied using subpage syntax (for example, Special:ViewTile/1 to show the tile at entry ID 1).
  • WhatUsesThisTile – Lists all uses of a given tile ID, essentially a version of Special:WhatLinksHere for tiles. Uses subpage syntax.

Usage

The Tilesheets extension has an API, so it can be used both on the wiki directly, and through MediaWiki's web API.

For non-API usage information, please read the Tilesheet update guide on the FTB Gamepedia site.
