    Hello everyone. I noticed many users in the community do not use the Group Layers function in their games (mainly isometric). I will be showing you how to use this function for your isometric games to improve layer changing with 2.5 objects :)




    Hope you find this video helpful.

    I can't believe I haven't seen that feature before. Thanks brakewind. It would now be so nice, if we just could select the folder and copy paste it in other scenes/worlds.

    Wow.. that just blew me away, I thought that was just for organizing. The same result can't be achieved by proper layering of your objects? Fantastic stuff thanks!

    ok..... sooooooo.... isometrics are not my forte... what exactly did we just learn here, that the layering doesn't follow front to back from top to bottom if you folder items? orrrrr.... some one make this dummy proof for me... Heath proof even...
