Modding Help How to open and edit an existing Content Patcher Farm.tbin?

    Long story short, I'd like to make a few personal adjustments to this map, which comes in Content Patcher form. That's great, except when I try to open the Farm.tbin to edit in tIDE, I get a blank screen. The map doesn't load. I've attached an image to this post showing what I see when I try opening the map.

    All tilesheets load properly. It's just the map itself that doesn't display. Putting a .yaml in the folder with the farm map and editing it to include the custom tilesheets did not help. Repacking it as an .xnb and unpacking it again did not help.

    The only thing I changed in the folder before trying to open the map was placing a 'spring_outdoorsTileSheet.png' in the same folder. Everything the map needs to open should be there.

    What's preventing the map from opening in an editable, or even viewable, state?

      When a map shows up like that in tIDE, click on a layer, go to the 'Layers' dropdown menu and click on 'Make Visible' - you'll have to do this with each layer of the map.

        Holy moly I can't believe it was something so OBVIOUS... but at the same time I'm relieved it was just me being silly and not an actual issue lol. Thanks a bunch!

          You're welcome, it took me a while to find that, myself.
