How did TexturePacker help you with your development?

TexturePacker not only helped me to manage efficiently textures in New Sokoban, but it also improved the way I fed Tiled and improved the overall pipeline to create new puzzles for New Sokoban. In this blog post I describe the way I used TexturePacker: http://indiedevstories.com/2011/04/10/using-sprite-sheets-in-cocos2d-and-tiled-part-1/

And here you have a video illustrating the puzzle creation process in Tiled using the sprite sheets created with TexturePacker: http://indiedevstories.com/2011/03/26/game-content-creation-new-sokoban-puzzles/

What are your favorite TexturePacker features?

Well, I love TexturePacker in general :) But having the option to export to cocos2d format is great. I also love all the optimization features such as: trimming, NPOT, rotation, image format, PNG optimization level, etc.

Any tips and tricks you want to share with the community?

Just a little tip: there is one indirect benefit when using sprite sheets and Xcode: you will not need to add to your Xcode project every single asset you need for your game. Just add it to the sprite sheet and re-publish. The assets will be immediately available in your game! Great way to improve the assets pipeline for your games! ;)
