could it just be that they wanted to have the fires light the blimp to make a new color?
I actually thought about this one (different color due to the fire), except that everything else is different too.
This is the best I could do for a full comparison of Angel Island's and Mushroom Hill's
Flying Battery in Angel Island
Flying Battery in Mushroom Hill
Completely different design, but same NAILS ON THE CHALKBOARD ass grinding sound.
I don't recall the sound being as harsh back in the day though. Maybe the old, simple mono speaker could handle it, but goddamn that's the WORST sound ever displayed in a Sonic game in surround sound.
But I wonder why they completely changed it? I'm willing to bet it wouldn't have been different if it were flying over Carnival Night like it was supposed to after the game was split. But that still makes me wonder what the transition would have been between Mushroom Hill and Sandopolis...
