Is it possible to do a 2D game with an isometric view in the way of Ultima 8 using Godot?
so i am really new to game developing. In fact i am just about to learn Godot by following those cool tutorials on YouTube like those of GDQuest. There are some games of my childhood which have been very defining for my own preference in terms of games. For example Zelda 3 on SNES or Ultima 8.
So if i don't got it wrong Zelda 3 was using a cartesian coordinate system for realising the viewing point and Ultima 8 uses an isometric coordinate system. I was experimenting a bit with Godot and first i was very pleased about the possibility of making an isometric 2D Game. But it seems that there are certain problems doing a game that way because depending on how one is setting up the tilemap in the scene editor the playersprite is overlapping the objects instead of being before or behind an object. I hope this two pictures are make it more clear what i want to express:
In the first picture everthing is good but the on the second picture the sprite is rendered like if it would stand on the box instead of being behind the box like it was intended by me.
I know that i could change the hitbox of the sprite so it can not get to close to the box from behind but then it looks quite strange for the sprite would stand far away from the box unable to come close to the box. Also i can allocate the Tilemap in the scene editor under (or above) the player sprite and depending on this the sprite will be shown correctly but in that case i have the same problem only vice versa.
Now to my question: Is it possible to do an isometric game in the style of Ultima 8 possible with Godot 3.2? In Ultima 8 one was able to stand directly before or behind an object and the position was always displayed correctly.
I hope i could explain my problem. Please excuse my bad english it's not my native language.
If anyone could help that would be cool!
Oh and as a second spontan question: Would a 2D isometric game maybe be to demanding for a programming and game designing Newbie like me?
P.S I wasn't able to post the pictures directly here but i don't know why so i have uploaded them on a filehoster.
