Tiles and Sigils
The world is built out of tiles, which consist of a sigil and foreground / background colors. A sigil is a simple ASCII character.
There is a limited amount of characters which are allowed as tiles at the moment, a subset of which are passable (can be traversed by a player).
See the list of sigils below. It can also be found inside sector7557 by invoking
PASSABLE .|-_,>x<^v¤!?" ALLOWED (but not passable) \* #o+$%&/()=;§:
It is likely that the amount of sigils will be expanded in future patches.
- The player is a walker
- The world is made out of sectors
- Each screen is a map
- A tile is a combination of a sigil, a foreground color (fg), and a background color (bg)
