    Collision Issues in 2.5D topdown platformer

    I'm testing some features to add to my future games, and decided to try adding fake 3d platforms where all objects would have a Z axis.

    Hi! I have a tile set, and I have converted it all into frames using the convert to frames thing, but I would like to take every frame and make them all separated, I could do image_index = x but I fear that it will lag the game, so what is the best thing to do?
