That's because the trees are 16x16 chunks that would be overwritten by the taller platforms.

Between the Nick Arcade (left) and Simon Wai (right) prototypes, Sonic's underwater palette for Hidden Palace Zone changed slightly. Nick Arcade's is the palette Sonic uses for Labyrinth Zone in Sonic 1.

I think this might be the most significant change between the two versions of HPZ. Aside from the debug mode options and the music.

I knew they mentioned it before, but this is still neat. The Nick Arcade palette looks worse on Tails, and the Simon Wai palette is in the Nick Arcade ROM but not yet properly implemented. Also note how this also means the teetering animation in the Simon Wai palette replaces a shade of dark red used for the lower pixel of Sonic's mouth with one of Tails's oranges.

May as well post this here.

There exists uncompiled data in the Sonic 2 Simon Wai prototype. All it is really is a bunch of DC.B's for Aquatic Ruin's/Neo Green Hill's chunk data. It included a comment in Shift-JIS describing its compression.

They flipped the layout for some reason.

That is the more disturbing alternative to blue arms yes.

It's like they got everyone else right, howd they fuck up the most established character of all of them.

Also how does tails fit in that plane?

They also miscolored Knuckles' chest mark, although it's consistent with his sprites.

Sonic 3's Knuckles sprites were like that too. I wonder why that was anyway?

Amazingly, they remembered the Tornado's booster, which is more than can be said for the Sonic 2 ending.

I assume because it was harder to notice the error on contemporary monitors and screens. That, or to act as shading an otherwise oddly flat surface.

Cybershell also noted that planes don't just hover in midair like that.

Yeah, but his ending sprites colored it correctly in that game. I've always assumed they gave it skin color because it made his sprites look better, although after doing a quick edit, I think they look even better when it's colored correctly:

So I'm guessing it was either a mistake, or they feared it would get confused with his white gloves during certain actions.

Now we know why Sega didn't allow him to be in the game =O

Either that, or he took off his pants for that group shot as a way of saying "Fuck you" to Sega for removing him from the playable cast :v:
