Project description

CLI tool for converting Tiled TMX files to Panda3D BAM files.


$ pip install panda3d-tmx2bam
$ tmx2bam path/to/tmx/file.tmx path/to/bam/file.bam


from tmx2bam import Tmx2Bam
from direct.showbase.ShowBase import ShowBase

base = ShowBase()
tmx_map = Tmx2Bam("path/to/tmx/file.tmx")

load the bam with panda3d like you would normally. find() important tiles by their properties/tags and make them move about and all that. Orthographic camera recommended!

Currently supports:

  • TMX file with CSV data (default)
  • Custom properties as PandaNode tags
  • Multiple tilesheets
  • Multiple layers and Groups
  • Animated tiles
  • Object layer/Objects (point, poly, rectangle, text, image)
  • Background images
  • Merge animated sprites

Left to do:

  • Fix wonky UV calculation
  • Infinite maps (chunks)
  • Hexagonal and Isometric tiles
  • Tile render order
  • Tilesheet image collection
  • Embedded tilesheet in tmx
  • Embed texture in bam
  • Tiled features I'm not aware of
  • Error handling
  • A better readme


  • The map is facing DOWN the Z
  • Animated sprites can only have one steady framerate that you can set on the first frame in Tiled.
  • Currently the image resolutions have to be power of two.
  • Tiles are merged into a single block of geometry as much as possible. Give tiles properties other then their ID to avoid this from happening.
  • The ellipse and point objects are not drawn, they're empty nodepaths.
  • It might be fun if some cards where cubes instead.
  • I'm not a programmer but I play one on TV. Your mileage may vary.
