    Thanks, I'm trying to make a palette for most things to be "Mania-esque" I guess. (At one point, I even almost decided to call my rom hack "Sonic 2: Encore Mode")

    I feel like a title where you have to specify which game you're talking about after mentioning it isn't a good title. It's like deciding to name your new born son John when you already have three sons all named John. I get you are trying to make an 8-bit game to be a sequel to 8-bit Sonic 2, but you should at least add a subtitle or something.

    Sonic 3: Tails in Trouble or something like that?

    Why not do it the same way we name the others? (Sonic 3 (SMS)?) That said, given the name, I can't wait to see how you change the presentation of the game to reflect such a title (the intro, title screen, story, etc.).

    As we speak, my first orders of business is to change the level name mappings to their new names, which are as follows:
    Emerald Hill Zone
    Volcano Top Zone
    Tempest Ruins Zone
    Endless Mine Zone
    Death Egg Zone
    Eggsteroid Zone (Asteroid, not steroid)
    "Bad" Little Planet (Zone) (It'll take place in an Eggman-controlled Little Planet (Bad Future?), or perhaps an alternate universe version).
    Feel free to add in suggestions people. The only one I don't plan on changing at all is Death Egg Zone, as I really want to see what I can do with my creative muscles in regards to 'demaking' Death Egg.

    Spent the whole week doing this. Time well spent, I think! But, what do you think?

    I was in two minds about showing screenshots because I wanted to keep it a secret. But there's so much art prepared and gimmick ideas you won't see in these shots, it's justifiable.

    Also, Natsumi wanted to show off some level select cards she's been working on, so I figured I'd join in~ ¦3

    I changed the layout for this act, and I'm hoping to get a bit of constructive criticism, I guess?

    @Natsumi I wouldn't expect less from you. Wonderful title card! It looks simple but pretty nice at the same time. I loved it, especially after seeying what you did with the "Battle" text.

    @MarkeyJester You made me gawk after giving a look to this zone's art. I have no words to explain how's being my feeling about this.

    @iced_t Layout is pretty much acceptable, I'd admit it. You didn't make it too linear this time and I like what did you do with some of the new chunks. Just the level name in the title card text is broken, but besides some weird art and some unexpected speed stops (such as the monitor in the beginning of the level), you made this level very nice. Keep up improving!

    Don't worry, I'll be redrawing the art a couple of times before I settle on something coherent (I didn't even finish the bushes for pete's sake!), so you'll probably be pleasantly surprised the next time you see *Flower Field Zone!
    (*the new name for Emerald Hill Zone)

    darn it i still need to finish the bushes, other than that, I added something to the background, and I think it looks decent.

    Well, after a long hiatus I return. Here's some new zone screenshots.

    Floral Fields Zone Act 1 (Please note that I didn't copy the name from @iced_t as I've had the name in my hack for a few months(?) now.)
    [​IMG]
    Act 2
    [​IMG]
    Rocky Ruin Zone Act 1
    [​IMG]
    Molten Metro Zone Act 1...
    [​IMG]
    ...and a Special Stage!
    [​IMG]
    Also, might I ask what you think about some of the pallets?
    I realised my old Sonic pallet was bland and generic, so I changed it a bit to have a bit more of a pastel feel, as well as tan for his skin.
    Floral Fields 2 is meant to have an Autumn (or Fall for some places) vibe to it, and I want to know how you all feel about it.
    Finally, for the special stages I just tried to make the colours more interesting than the boring overdone stock ones.

    I've done some interesting things lately, from trying to improve my level design (To be less linear.) to music things that I can't show you yet (Why do Kega recordings become so big?!) and I'm enthusiastic to continue showing off my work.

    That's it for now, have fun!

    Ninja edit:
    @Natsumi That looks really good! Sonic 3 & K Battle first made me think of a Vs. themed hack but them I remembered Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. I'm excited to see more of this!

    @iced_t Here I am mentioning you again. From what I've seen you hack looks intriguing but a few things do bother me. The blue clouds/water in the BG. If you want to change these just download HivePal. It's what I use and is simple enough to operate.
    Speaking of pallets I feel that Sonic is a tad too bright, I know what you're going for (I think) but maybe toning them down a bit, even if it isn't even all of them, it can make a big difference.
    But nitpicking aside, I like that you're using Mania's ring sprites, not many people I've seen have used sprites from Mania. (About one.) Also I like that bush, I don't know why but I really do. I like your stuff, I'll be sure to keep an eye on your progress.

    Best of luck to the both of you.

    Apparently, this is what happens when I get sidetracked:

    The second project is obviously gonna require a lot of work, but the first might actually become something one day...

    Ha! Those remind me of the time back in 2014 when I was trying to create a bunch of game clones using the Sonic engine and compile them into a singular game called Sonic Video Game Dimensions. (I implemented Mega Man, Pokemon, and Punch Out, and then just gave up on the project).

    The first one reminds me of Rockman Chaos, while the second one reminds me of something I had thought about many years ago but dropped in favor of other ambitions.

    However, a MegaMan X in Sonic 1/2 would be pretty neat, especially if you implement the dash move.
    As much as I'd love to see it done, I don't mind if it isn't a priority.

    I love having games playable with other characters from other types of the same genre. It's why I love stuff like Mario Crossover and Sonic Boll honestly. Can't wait to see how the first one turns out, if it reaches the Light of day.

    Diggin the new sonic palette, but I must say, FF2 looks more like a sunset stage than an Autumn stage. I think the autumn idea is good, since it is a little more unique and hasn't been done to death. Bonus points if you then make Act 3 the "winter" palette that is akin to Mushroom Hill.

    I've decided to get back into romhacking, and the first thing I've done was making a new sprite for the title screen. While I made everything by hand, the arm/fist is from the normal Sonic 1, since I am not good at drawing hands.
