Signals

  • cell_size_changed ( Vector3 cell_size )

Emitted when cell_size changes.

Constants

  • INVALID_CELL_ITEM = -1 — Invalid cell item that can be used in set_cell_item to clear cells (or represent an empty cell in get_cell_item).

Description

GridMap lets you place meshes on a grid interactively. It works both from the editor and from scripts, which can help you create in-game level editors.

GridMaps use a MeshLibrary which contains a list of tiles. Each tile is a mesh with materials plus optional collision and navigation shapes.

A GridMap contains a collection of cells. Each grid cell refers to a tile in the MeshLibrary. All cells in the map have the same dimensions.

Internally, a GridMap is split into a sparse collection of octants for efficient rendering and physics processing. Every octant has the same dimensions and can contain several cells.

Property Descriptions

  • bool cell_center_x
Default true
Setter set_center_x(value)
Getter get_center_x()

If true, grid items are centered on the X axis.


  • bool cell_center_y
Default true
Setter set_center_y(value)
Getter get_center_y()

If true, grid items are centered on the Y axis.


  • bool cell_center_z
Default true
Setter set_center_z(value)
Getter get_center_z()

If true, grid items are centered on the Z axis.


  • int cell_octant_size
Default 8
Setter set_octant_size(value)
Getter get_octant_size()

The size of each octant measured in number of cells. This applies to all three axis.


Default 1.0
Setter set_cell_scale(value)
Getter get_cell_scale()

The scale of the cell items.

This does not affect the size of the grid cells themselves, only the items in them. This can be used to make cell items overlap their neighbors.


Default Vector3( 2, 2, 2 )
Setter set_cell_size(value)
Getter get_cell_size()

The dimensions of the grid’s cells.

This does not affect the size of the meshes. See cell_scale.


  • int collision_layer
Default 1
Setter set_collision_layer(value)
Getter get_collision_layer()

The physics layers this GridMap is in.

GridMaps act as static bodies, meaning they aren’t affected by gravity or other forces. They only affect other physics bodies that collide with them.


  • int collision_mask
Default 1
Setter set_collision_mask(value)
Getter get_collision_mask()

The physics layers this GridMap detects collisions in.


Setter set_mesh_library(value)
Getter get_mesh_library()

The assigned MeshLibrary.

Method Descriptions

  • void clear ( )

Clear all cells.


  • void clear_baked_meshes ( )

  • RID get_bake_mesh_instance ( int idx )

  • Array get_bake_meshes ( )

The MeshLibrary item index located at the grid-based X, Y and Z coordinates. If the cell is empty, INVALID_CELL_ITEM will be returned.


  • int get_cell_item_orientation ( int x, int y, int z ) const

The orientation of the cell at the grid-based X, Y and Z coordinates. -1 is returned if the cell is empty.


  • bool get_collision_layer_bit ( int bit ) const

Returns an individual bit on the collision_layer.


  • bool get_collision_mask_bit ( int bit ) const

Returns an individual bit on the collision_mask.


Returns an array of Transform and Mesh references corresponding to the non-empty cells in the grid. The transforms are specified in world space.


  • Array get_used_cells ( ) const

Returns an array of Vector3 with the non-empty cell coordinates in the grid map.


  • void make_baked_meshes ( bool gen_lightmap_uv=false, float lightmap_uv_texel_size=0.1 )

Returns the position of a grid cell in the GridMap’s local coordinate space.


  • void resource_changed ( Resource resource )

Sets the mesh index for the cell referenced by its grid-based X, Y and Z coordinates.

A negative item index such as INVALID_CELL_ITEM will clear the cell.

Optionally, the item’s orientation can be passed. For valid orientation values, see Basis.get_orthogonal_index.


  • void set_clip ( bool enabled, bool clipabove=true, int floor=0, Vector3.Axis axis=0 )

  • void set_collision_layer_bit ( int bit, bool value )

Sets an individual bit on the collision_layer.


  • void set_collision_mask_bit ( int bit, bool value )

Sets an individual bit on the collision_mask.


Returns the coordinates of the grid cell containing the given point.

pos should be in the GridMap’s local coordinate space.
