Hello and welcome to my second toolbar / dialog script for Aseprite! The idea for this slope generator was inspired by MortMort's Youtube Video on his tile set workflow. While watching I had the thought that it could be really handy to automate this tedious process. So here we are!


Before we even get in to it... Thank you! Thanks to everyone that has checked out the project over the past little bit. This is still very much a learning process for myself and I really appreciate all the feedback and love that I have been receiving. Seems like a lot of you guys are quite excited for this!

First things first let me get this out of the way, the script is free to download and you can skip the pay what you want option. This script has taken me quite some time to figure out and if you'd like to give a little something for my work and efforts and can afford it it would be very much appreciated! Again option is there and can be skipped very easily at the top of the box when downloading!

Key Features Currently Supported:

  • Toolbar can be minimized to save work space area when not in use.
  • Selection of tiles in any position on the grid used for top and fill tiles.
  • Quick setup button that will copy a bunch of your tiles quickly to a separate layer. Ready to be worked on. Should be non-destructible.
  • Allows resizing of grid by selection ( Limited to square tiles for this one toolbar ).
  • Undo grid resize can be pressed if you want to revert to last / original grid size.
  • Creates a slope from a single layer (top and bottom of tile on the same layer)
  • Generation will adjust the steepness of the slope based on your selection.
  • Left and right downward slopes can easily be created.
  • Help & Info panel built in to the toolbar to give reminders of how to use.
  • Multiple points of error checking. If something goes wrong it should warn you.


Future Features Planed:

  • Creating a slope from a multi-layer set up.  (Such as grass being on a separate layer on top of the dirt layer.)
  • Curved Slopes: Different styles of quickly generated slopes.
  • Upside Down Slopes (Left and Right)
  • Multiple frame sloping / animated slopes.
  • Plus More :)

Please comment with any suggestions for new features or feedback you may have. I would really like to make this the best it can be!

Also would love to see any content you've created with this tool.

Hopefully you guys will find it as helpful as I have and I will continue to update this as we see fit!

I'd love to see what your using this tool bar to work on! Use #CarbsTools on Twitter to share!

i was unable to use the slope generator since the folder is missing a lua file don't know what's going on here

(1 edit)

Very strange! Which file did you download? I belive they are all lua files for each of the operating systems. Just need to place it in your scripts folder to use :)

the cc slope generator tool bar or cc slope generator 1.2.0 can't seem to see the lua

Hmm let's see, which version of aseprite are you using?

Does it have the option under File>Scripts>Open Scripts Folder?

How are you trying to open the tool?

Trying to think of what has gone wrong here 🤔 

aspriet version 1.2.33-x64 and yes it does have the drop down menu of open script but tried it couple of time no lua file

(1 edit)

Okay so you have downloaded the lua file from here?

And copied it to the scripts folder?

And it's not showing up in aseprite or it's not in the scripts folder at all?

I just double checked and all downloads here should have a lua file first one is for windows specifically.

Sorry for any confusion!
