    Thanks, I wish people would understand that.

    Maybe I'm being stupid but could you just clarify what you mean by that?

    One of the things that made the much discussed door look like a watch band were the links that chained it together. That kind of design can't be neatly divided into segments.

    You mean the four metal blocks? We definitely have to follow that? Or am I way off track...

    How about put a little bit of colour to the left-side of the door? Of course, the effect would look better if someone more talented could finish off the idea along the 'sides' of the bevel.

    *warning!* This is only a concept|! *warning!*

    Although do you think it'd look too much like it belongs in one of the more metallic zones (like the Death Egg Zone)?

    Not a bad idea, I suppose. At least it'd look better than bland beveled rectangles.

    About the door in general- I think the metal bar on the right of the door should NOT look cylindrical.

    Agreed on it not being cylindrical.
    I'm not much taken by that concept overall. But I guess my window idea was no better! :P I was thinking something like "Sonic sees sirens, looks inside, realises it's dangerous there and if he goes in he won't be able to get out." But who would design such a weird door? :psyduck:

    Yes, it's a bad idea. That doesn't belong in this kind of level.

    To be honest, the original door has always looked out of place to me. I never understood what the hell a metal door was doing in the middle of the mountains. That's why I feel that we have so much liberty with this particular piece, the original didn't look like it belonged anyway!

    That was just a placeholder for now [the bit on the right], that's all.

    Here's an idea. Instead of warning tape stripes, how about putting the Eggman face symbol on each bevel, as if it's been laser etched onto there? I believe the symbol appears in Wing Fortress Zone, so it shouldn't look too out of place game wise.

    Oh no? Then never mind then. Is there something else in the game that can be used as a sort of Robotnik symbol?

    Now hold on. I like the idea of throwing an Eggman symbol on the door. As someone mentioned earlier, it IS indeed out of place to have metal doors in the middle of the mountains. However, if they were put there by a third party, then it makes a little more sense, no?

    One can just as easily suppose that they were installed by someone without a Robotnik logo or suchlike, and that also stays true to the original game (not in terms of ORIG PIXLZ, but just not adding stuff for its own sake).

    The only symbol referencing Robotnik in Sonic 2 that I can think of would be a stylized EG on some concept art.

    Those doors aren't even traps for Sonic, so why would he put those there?

    It's not like the minecart breaker in Sonic 4, which is a trap.

    It's also in Wing Fortress.

    you really want to argue about Robotnik's logic?

    I'm just saying that all the Zones are supposed to have stuff that was already there, and stuff put in there by the bad guy. In this case, the latter would make less sense.

    Just change the door to a pillar of rocks (or a rockslide, even) and be done with the whole "we have to interpret what this door should look like, and by the way, it's totally out of place in this level!" thing.

    Original pixels be damned, too.
