It’s been a while and I decided to get back into the tutorials with a request for wooden platforms as used in the wood material tutorial:

A lot of this tutorial is repeated here in a slightly less detailed way – you might want to reread the older tutorials if you run into problems.


Note:

If you work with bitmap output in mind I would suggest creating the platform as a bitmap first. This way you have the proper dimensions to work with. Import the bitmap and create the starting rectangle to match. 

One platform for everything might work – but adding variations to your games art greatly enriches the look and feel. 
 
I hope this was helpful and you enjoyed it as much as I did writing again.
