The only additional planez possible to make in gruntz are back planez. To do this you need to select "Plane", then "Add". In the dialog boxez add this information (it is VERY important that you add the information properly).
Width: 32 Height: 32
Width: you may instert any value within 256 Height: you may instert any value within 256
Fill Color: 128
Z coord: 0
Afterwardz you can bring up the tile menu (warning! If the tile menu doesn't show any tilez, you have done something wrong!). Now you should be able to see all of the tilez normally used and add them as normal. Note that you can't put any logicz onto the back plane.
If you are working with High on Sweetz, High Rollerz, or Gruntz in Space, you will need to alter the current back plane. To access the plane switching area, click "World", then "Planez". If you select the back plane in any of these worldz, you get a special new tile set to work with .
When you create a back plane, you may notice that the planez have suddenly swapped and you can no longer see the action plane (although it still behavez as normal ). In order to fix this nasty little problem, you must create the back plane first. Then you must delete the action plane and then remake the action plane (remember to check the main plane box only).
NOTE: This isn't actually true. All you have to do to fix this is to go to World -> Planes, and then use the Re-Order option to switch the numbers of the planes (0 to 1, and 1 to 0).
Warning! When you attempt to make a back plane of a level set that already has a back plane, do NOT try making tilez that show the back plane on the back plane! (such as open holez, space areaz). The resultz (as I have tested) are absolutly, horrificly, terrible!! (I may post CloudCity303 later when web host problemz are fixed so any can see why the resultz look so horrifically awful ).
In order to see your back plane in graphicz setz that do not originally have a back plane, you need to use invisible tilez. To make one, select a tile, press Ctrl and i. It is advised that you make an entire template out of invisible tilez to save hassle .
