      FYI you can search for topics among other things yourself via the search function on the top right hand corner of the forum pages. I’m not sure if this applies on other interfaces as I’m on mobile but it is indicated by an icon of a magnifying glass per what I’m currently seeing. 

  2. Actually control the characters? Good luck. Heroes is notorious for being one of the most difficult games for speedrunners to complete because how unpredictable its controls can behave in any given circumstance - have fun with Casino Park; furthermore Boost2Win (which is a dead meme, thanks for trying) levels, particularly Unleashed and Generations, have a much better sense of ebb and flow in its level design than Sonic Heroes ever did. It's not much different from Sonic 4's "stop-and-go" platforming approach, complete with enemies donning health bars and lock-and-key puzzle platform solving (that's giving it way too much credit) which just amounts to swapping out one character for another to use their ability, then switching back to a speed character's rocket skates on ice physics. At the very least, with all of its stiffness, Modern Sonic games are predictable, which is a lesser evil. In that situation, the metagame of perfecting your run is there. You can't do that with Heroes without losing your mind.
  3. Do you normally quote posts from over three months ago? Level design is the other side of the coin and is of equal, and in some instances greater importance. This isn't a slight on those developers either, I regularly speak with some of them of these kinds of engines and they're in agreement with me on that point; these engines are just the first step in a long-term endeavor to creating a comprehensive system that can create a complete fangame.
  4. Classic and Modern Sonic is a social construct

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      Is it a social construct when it's an officially recognized distinction in-universe at this point?

      You are going to clean this up, young man! The mops are in the utility room next to the spare ban-hammers on the left-hand side. 

  6. So, the biggest disappointment with this is that it means Mike Pollock won't be hitting the big screen as Dr Eggman. But all things considered, Jim Carrey could fit the bill pretty well as long as they have him acting bombastic and and a bit unhinged. His performance in A Series of Unfortunate Events as Count Olaf is close to how I predict he'll portray Eggman, so I think it'll be fine. They'll probably just shave him bald, put him in a fatsuit and give him a prosthetic mustache so he looks the part. The question is how they'll exposit his origins. Is Sonic trapped in the real world due to Chaos Control shenanigans and Eggman got warped with him and he just looks human in this world? Or are both of them already a part of this setting and Eggman working with the government to catch Sonic? I don't expect them to respect any of the lore beyond "Sonic fast and Eggman bad", so there's no telling what we'll end up with. Honestly, Jim Carrey could save this for me. I can't believe I'm writing this. Then again, I can't believe the Sonic movie is live action. I can't believe there's a Sonic movie at all, really.

      Decent. I was able to relax today.

  9. Whatever happened to that avid Trump supporter that used to frequent these forums?

      I think with all the evidence that is piling up against the orange orangutan courtesy of the Mueller investigation, and news stories from trustworthy sites highlighting the sheer mess of an administration on multiple levels the supporter decided to possibly lie low for now.

      Which one? I remember one guy pretty well, was the "diversity is ruining america" type and massive shit-stirrer, I believe he left rather than being banned, but I know we've had others.

  10. Y'all ready for a hot take? Yes. Let me explain. Not as a story component, but as an extra feature that you can use to create a customizeable playstyle, as well as give players a sort of avatar or icon should they choose to use it. Think of it like being able to play as Miis in Sonic Colors' Game Land and using your Mii as an icon for your save file. If executed well, it would add loads of replay value. Imagine being able to pick your species and then subsequent special abilities. Let's say we're doing this for a Mania-style sidescroller. You could pick from a variety of air actions like bouncing, stomping, double jumps, insta shields and air dashing, or if you want to go even deeper, you could give these custom characters some gear that can let them fly or break through stuff, essentially letting them become alternate skins for pre-existing characters like Tails and Knuckles. Different species could have different perks and drawbacks such as their top speed, jump height, traction and such. Basically what I'm getting at is something that goes beyond the scope of some preset abilities ala Forces, but doesn't make creating an avatar character a necessity for those who don't want it. As long as it's executed well and doesn't interfere with the main campaign, I think it's worth looking into. It'd be easier to implement than a Chao Garden, for instance, since these abilities would match the characters that have the levels designed for them already. I think a Chao Garden and an Avatar system could coexist as well, but that's a topic for another day. Customization is in right now, but if you're gonna add it into your game, at least do it properly and make it fun.

    Sonic Mania: Sequel Speculation (Spoilers)

    This is untrue. Press Garden Zone takes place in a printing press during the Meiji Restoration era. It was Christian Whitehead's idea to make a printing press level and tie in that historical Japanese motif (this was explained during the developer stream of Sonic Mania on Tails Channel's Twitch account). Wood Zone is a completely different concept from the industrial + garden setting of Press Garden, it takes place in the tree tops and inside tree trunks and is an otherwise underdeveloped concept; there's a very good reason it wasn't salvaged whereas Hill Top Zone was.

    Should Sonic Be Given The Ability To Swim?

    If they can manage something that blends well with the core gameplay mechanics, then I don't see why not. The logistics would vary depending on whether it's a sidescroller or a full 3D platformer, for instance. I always liked to imagine an updated take on the Classic Sonic formula (or even something like Sonic Rush) with underwater controls resembling NiGHTS' flight controls, being able to launch out of the water and dive back with varying heights based on your momentum in like in Ecco the Dolphin. For 3D, assuming it's something close to Sonic Adventure, could work similarly to Zora Link from Majora's Mask with full 3D swimming controls. Both have you swimming freely underwater in such a way that can preserve momentum, dipping in and out of water in a flashy way, and you simply exchange your jump for a speed boost. I don't have anything creative to propose for the boost style, but Sonic Colors' infinite jumps underwater seems like a lazy adjustment to me. But as for the others, I think they'd be loads more fun than trudging around underwater looking for air pockets, though certain levels like Sonic 3 and Mania's Hydrocity take great strides in making underwater sections feel like less of a chore and more of a thrill ride. My 2 cents.
  14. My state govt has been debating whether or not companies should call products like almond milk and soy milk... "milk".

    This is really what I have to listen to at my job.
