ICEKnight decided for that second interview to whip the one phrase "I always called it the desert zone or desert level" totally out of context, to give the impression that that was the only thing she said

Please remove the false accusations. I used that sentence only because that's the only relevant thing that was said in the aim chat (everything else had been said in the past).

Also, as I've already said before, you can't put that sentence "out of context" since it has a very specific meaning. She thought the name could have been Dust Hill, but she knew she hadn't used that name, ever.

I'll change "to give" to "which gives", to make it clearer that you weren't deliberately being sadistic with your editing. It wasn't meant accusingly, I'm just trying to make it clearer to people who might only know about that one line of the interview. And I'm glad you're ok with me having the art on there, I wasn't sure :)

Hey, I thought of something.

Has anyone noticed how there's actually no real proof against Dust Hill being the Desert Zone since the olden days, yet for a while there everyone unquestioningly shifted to it?

Think for yourselves, people :/

SANDY DESERT ZONE


W00t? That's the name of my Desert level.

PROOF! XD

I wonder... did you actually see my hack? If so, I can gather where you got that name from...

*stops rambling, and legs it*

Well, I kinda think it's hard to read such a big thread for just two lines of info at page 6.

Just another thing I noticed, regaurding Desert and Winter zone's being the same level:

Quote

14. Why were these two zones ditched?
The last artists added to the team were myself, and a guy named Craig Stitt. Craig did the Hidden palace zone, which made it in. I came along later to create the desert/winter dust hill zone and the woods zone.

So it's the "Desert/Winter Dust Hill Zone"? The slash between the Desert and the Winter suggests she was clarifying that they were the same zone, this does depend however on how much she knew about how they were implementing the zones. Judging from how much Craig Stitt knew, him being in a similar position, I believe she may have known quite a lot about how the levels were being implemented.

Also another nugget of info, though I can't 100% proove it yet:

Quote

8. Explain the "synthesizers" some more.
This appears to be a responce to an answer, so was the interview done in 2 parts? This is why I want to contact Deviance to clarify this. If this IS the case, then she calls it Dust Hill before any prompts in the interview itself.

Of course that doesn't rule out the flood, which ICEKnight has proven to have happened by an old email from her:

Quote

Sorry I haven't written sooner, but because I got so much email regarding the Sonic level art, I decided to just answer one person, and gave him all the info I have.
I wouldn't mind a full copy .eml file of this mail if possible, for documentation. I feel this arguement needs all the evidence well documented.

Look at it this way: While she never specified the desert and winter levels were part of the same one, the art director said they were two separated levels.

He mentioned the Digitizers because we were told about them in the previous interview.

Had there been any more relevant stuff in there, I would have posted it.

Not necessarily. They shared art, he's an artist, therefore he draws one art for two zones. He calls that art winter/desert, not the levels.

One problem is the ambiguous nature of "level" in Sonic context - does that mean act or zone?

Most likely Zone. The acts would play as part of each level
(ie, you say green hill zone is a level, and it has 3 acts, rather than referring to each act individually [ie on green hill act 1, 2 and 3, this happens etc etc] )

This might be a dumb question, and it sort of goes off topic, but...

If we were talking about Sonic CD, would each level be an act? Because the time differences?
