Well as explained in the video above, I am in having said problem of being too far away from the spawn. Everytime I go in, it still crashes. And it crashes for EVERYBODY when I go in. If there would be a way to move me anyone of you working there but are also here, it would be nice.
This would be easier if he had his forums still, but what can you do.
This is the third day where whenever I log in, it crashes the server. The second time a person there said "remove your mods" so I did today. Same deal. I land in the same area, with the same mobs and sheep around as days ago. They just stand there frozen, then the server goes down for the rest of the day.
I PMed MegaGWolf about it, but haven't gotten a reply back yet. What is going on?
Is Act 3 supposed to be completable? There is a part where I kept going around in circles and underneath it a part that is impossible to get out of (too high to jump to to get back, tunnel forcing you the other direction, no choice but to die)
That said, I DID like the idea of the air monitors. Regular bubbles you have to wait for and even then they spawn at random times. Just pop a monitor, no waiting. Its one use also pushes you through the level, making the whole system faster than the underwater sonic stage staple.
Tried to make it more 3d by extending the side walls like how some games do. The only downside is that it isn't realistic perspectively and I wanted to try to avoid it as much as I could before. The problem before was that the wide floors blended in with each other if they were on a higher ledge.
Well the character's feet if you are wondering will be changed ingame to match the perspective. Also the triangles are just me trying stuff out.
Edit: Since we are still talking about the art I might as well post what I finished today. The level layout is jaggy because I wanted to fit in as much chunks as possible and how some would fit together. Also the tunnel is unfinished, going to round the edges like I did with the top slope barriers.
This realtime Lua palette editor is amazing. Not making a S3k hack, just going to hopefully port the colors over to my Sonic 1 project and make new art for it. Always gotta start with a good palette, you know?
What got me into it was Rage's original thread in the Sonic Retro member's lounge. I watched the second episode before the first because I didn't care about it at the time and I wanted to see how this "fluttershy" tames a manticore. Then I kept watching out of curiosity.
