    What is up guys, just found this video this morning explaining old SA1 art and saw a LOT on the Egg Carrier (which a lot of can be found easily) and this made me think about how much work on the Egg Carrier went in to the game. What do you think about the pictures?

    Sonic Team needs to return to this

    Yes me too! The transformation is very interesting and impressive.
     
  4. They really wanted to make the thing as impressive as possible. If you clip out of bounds in game, you can see just how massive the egg carrier truly is.

    Sonic Team really made the Egg Carrier feel huge, they had to put in a lot of thought into it. It feels like you're on a map the size of Station Square sometimes, let alone all the cool interior rooms like someone else mentioned.

    It's definitely my favorite area out of the whole game.

    I enjoyed wandering the adventure fields at dusk and night.
    The lighting and skybox gave the scenery a certain mystique.
    To me, it was the power of early 3D games, at that time xD

    And yeah, Egg Carrier was awesome to explore. Felt huge.
    Sometimes I tried to clip out-of-bounds. Never managed it.
    Saw vids of it years later, was fun but a bit hollow as well...

    I agree, it is funny when I was younger I hated the Egg Carrier for how complex it is but now that is why I love it so much

    Yes I recently learned of this possibility and have been attempting to break out of bounds myself on my copy of the game.

    Hey there! I'm the guy that made the video and just wanted to say thank you for checking it out. The concept art in this game was so awesome imo, especially since this was such a monumental step for the franchise with the first mainline game to 3D. Was really interesting in my opinion how radically different a lot of the concept designs were compared to their final counterparts. Hope you enjoyed it! (also just signed up on the forums...I didnt know this place had a forum page till now ^_^)
