I am making an open world 2D platformer. I have a tilemap, and want to create an infinite course or environment. Basically, I want to create a large side-scrolling world that the player can navigate. I have tried to use the set_tile function, but I cannot figure out how to make hills, trees, and such. Any help would be appreciated!

Procedural level generation requires "complex" algorithms. Try google searching that and using them in godot.

I have looked, but I have not found any generations for 2D platformers. They are all top-down or 3d. Do you know of any sites-or scripts-to create a side-scrolling world?

You can save the components in individual scenes and then load them by random number to a random position. (Of course, you have to be careful that nothing overlaps) This is how I created my 2D open world.

Thanks! It worked. I made different tilemap layouts and loaded them together. I also generated random numbers to place animals and trees. Thank you for answering!
