    Unleashed and Generations Stuff and Custom Works



    I've been doing some testing of my own recently. Trying to find some alternatives to some things Generations didn't have from Colors or Unleashed. I should be getting back to work on more important things though. At least it works.

    Do you mind if I build on what you've made already? ^_^;

    ...and if so, could I have the 3ds project for the stage to work on?

    I actually don't have Skype, or a mic. I could install it though.

    You don't need a microphone to use Skype, that's a common misconception. It's a chat program, calling is an extra and optional feature.

    Yeah Skype is basically WLM Messenger now. whatever Messenger can do Skype can do.

    That looks amazing, although it really does highlight how level design has progressed in the past half a decade, for better or worse.

    I think this really shows that Sonic 06 would have worked better if it actually had a better, more finished engine

    Though I still think the speed section's music should be in the regular section

    I do forget that Wave Ocean really did have great music which I wished had great gameplay like Generations to make the whole experience fun.

    I noticed you removed some of the more ridiculous level design decisions (such as those stupid gates), and made the level look more, well, current-gen. Sonic 06, let's be honest, was practically a spruced-up 6th-gen game, you could probably get it working on the Wii with enough effort. Not bad.

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    I don't see the point in alternate paths activated by not boosting. How many people don't boost just to see what happens? The boost meter is plentiful in Generations, too, so it's not like managing and maintaining your boost meter is that much trouble.

    All that aside though, it does look fun as hell. The level design is kinda Adventure-y. I like it!

    Yeah I saw the Youtube comment but didn't want to say anything until you commented yourself there paraxade.

    Is he pawning this off as his own work? because that would seem wrong if he is.

    Nah, he linked our level in the description, so he's crediting us at least. But regardless, there's a lot of our work in there. Either way it's not a big deal, so long as credit is given where it's due.

    Frankly his version is probably going to turn out better since he's not trying to turn a 3D level into a 2D one, anyway.

    Why does everyone use that one HUD, and what exactly is it? I see it all the time, but the regular Generations one just seems so much cleaner and nice to look at.
