To connect two Rooms, you'll use Portal tiles. Be careful to put the Portal tiles down in a way that imitates natural movement (see more in the Portal Best Practices). For this article, we will be connecting the main Room of the office to a new speakeasy Room via a doorway. We'll be connecting the original Room to the new Room first, then connecting the new Room back to the original Room. (Remember, Portal tiles are one-way, so you need to place tiles for both directions.)
Tip: Check out our article on how to add a Room, which also provides details on how to add a door!
Original Room to New Room
From the original Room, select Tile Effects in the Top Nav Menu of the Mapmaker. Select the Stamp tool. In the Tile Effects panel, select Portal Tiles. Place the first Portal tile in the one of the tiles of the doorway. (Portal tile effects are indicated by a translucent blue color.)
Note: More than one tile effect can be applied to a tile. For example, a Portal tile effect can share the same tile as a Spawn tile effect.
After you select the tile, the Pick portal type window opens. Select Portal to a room.
A list of Rooms in the Space displays. Choose the Room you wish to connect to (for this article, the speakeasy).
The Room you selected opens in the Mapmaker. Place the portal tile in the new Room where you wish to arrive.
Once you've placed the tile, the Mapmaker returns to the original room. Add another Portal tile following the same steps so that walking through either tile in the doorway of the original room will lead to the new room. Select Save in the Top Nav Menu.
New Room Back to Original Room
Now you need to connect the new Room back to the original Room. This will let you walk back and forth.
In the Rooms tab in the right panel of the Mapmaker, select the name of the new Room (the speakeasy). The new Room displays in the Mapmaker. Select Tile Effects in the Top Nav Menu, then select the Stamp tool in the Left Nav Menu, and then Portal in the Tile Effects panel. Place a portal tile in the doorway. Choose Portal to a room, and select the original Room.
The original Room displays. You may need to scroll to find the door to place the Portal tile down. Repeat this step so that the entire entrance from the new Room portals to the original Room. Select Save.
Return to the Space. Test the portal between the two rooms.
