Also, having a decent GUI system will make things much easier for you with 2DT.
I think I read somewhere that this will come in 4.6 this spring.
BTW, in the video I saw "More Physics 2D API". I wonder what that means...

Could someone explain what the advantages of a 64-bit Editor are and why all the hype surrounding it? I'm all for the Physically Based rendering and the new UI, but the 64-bit editor still has me a bit perplex.

Among other things, it means that it can address all the RAM on your computer, so it can manage better all bigger scenes and projects. So if you have >4GB and work with complex projects, it is great news for you.

The RAM argument makes a lot of sense, thank you. Could you elaborate on those other advantages?

Well, the other advantages come from the fact that in a 64bit application you can use 64bits registers. For codecs and similar software it usually means an important improvement in performance. For a 3D editor... hmmm... I doubt it could be noticeable. And in x86-64 you also have more registers to use, but it is also not relevant for an editor. So, basically, the one and big improvement is RAM access.

Nice info, thank you! I guess I never thought about it since I'm developing a 2D game that doesn't require as many resources, but for more advanced projects it surely does sound limiting.

Any chance of Multiple color channels for Tilemaps making it in soon? Any game making use of tilemaps could really use the versatility in painting.

Hi,
Maybe in the next version but I can't commit to it yet. Having multiple tile maps in the same scene should work fine though, and should be no different performance wise - this will let you paint each tile map differently.
