    Hey everyone!
    I've been working on editing Ali's Foraging Map and adding some other tile sheets from other mod creators, but I'm just hitting roadblock after roadblock.

    I've used the post for discussing map editing and tIDE, Stardew Valley Wiki, Youtube videos, and just trial and error. I think I'm just really bad at this.

    I'm almost to the point of passing it off to someone else and begging them to finish it. Or possibly even commissioning someone if I become truly desperate.

    This is what it looks like in tIDE so far.

    I have no idea how many hours of work this was but it's been weeks. Between having to learn XNB Node, Graphics Gale, tIDE, altering the yaml file for the tile sheets, and then making these things go together in a cohesive way... Ugh.

    A List of Stuff I'm Using/Trying to Make Work:
    The Base of the map is Ali's Foraging Map: https://www.nexusmods.com/stardewvalley/mods/1122

    The Waterfall Tile Sheet from this forum: https://community.playstarbound.com/threads/waterfall-tilesheet-w-animation.132102/page-2

    The fountain from Tanpoponoko's Custom Map Elements: https://www.nexusmods.com/stardewvalley/mods/2380

    The pet bowl from Ace's Expanded Farms: https://www.nexusmods.com/stardewvalley/mods/988


    If anyone has any advice, tips, or is willing to save me from my suffering and do the map edit I will bless your soul and name my children after you.

      What is the problem you are having? It seems like you have been able to add the tile sheets, but what's going wrong?

        Oh yeah, I should edit that in!

        I'm having a hard time repacking the edited map as an xnb? When I put the edited map file with all the tile sheets and .yaml file all in the same folder and try to repack it with XNB Node it won't do it? Did I need to edit the .yaml file somehow or did I need to alter something else?

        I'm not done with the map edit, I just wanted to test what is done so far and see what it looks like in-game.

            Okay, that's everything from the file. The edited tIDE map, the yaml file, and the tile sheets.

            Thanks for your assistance! It really means a lot.
