I really prefer the old sign to the current one, to be honest.
Idea: split the levels out as separate asset files (layout, artwork, etc) or however you have the engine set up. Then, additional levels can be added later on once made (also potential for an external level-editor). This would allow a release on-time (or close to it), and give you the opportunity to add additional content later on. A similar setup for badniks, etc. could add infinite replayability. Not to mention user-made content.
Or not. Whatever works for you.
It's actually a fan game, and not a hack. With that said, this keeps getting better and better.
I tried my go at editing the signpost to illustrate how I think it should look. I'll admit it's not my best work, but I hope that you'll at least see what I was imagining it should look like...
<- Hez's Signpost
<- My Revision
Well, multiple things bugged me about Hez's signpost, His eyes bothered me some and blah blah blah here's what I did to it:
I wanted to change the spikes completely but since I have to go to school soon I wasn't able to. I made his middle spike go farther into his head using the darkest shade, I also tweaked the eyes a little bit as well. And possibly the most important change I made was his muzzle.I raised up and drew a line of dark skin color over the sign post to make it more pop out-ish. I also tweaked the eggmans mouth a little bit.
Got bored. Decided to tweak it a bit more.
Now using Tidbit's muzzle and featuring a 20% bigger hand.
Hez, may I ask where the level that you have shown the layout for is placed in the game? Near the start or nearer to the end? I only ask because it looks to have a very large death pit under the second half of the level which also seems to have several places you can fall into said pit and in my opinion it doesn't suit an early level.
Obviously this is based on the screenshot you've provided and we'll know when it's released, but I thought I'd ask beforehand.
Why the hell is everyone nitpicking and creating their OWN versions of a signpost? Seriously, let the man do his work and if you don't like it then too bad.
Hez, great job so far. Don't try to cater to everyone's ideas because you won't be able to please them all.
I think we have a winner...you don't mind me stealing this do you? :P
Actually, it is a hack.
It swings both ways.... o.o
Go for it. It's the least I could do for dragging this issue for far too long. =P
That would mean that hacks and fan games have a sexual orientation... I'm guessing that the hacks are the straight ones. :P
In relation to Sonic Booms pixel art, I do like the redesigned sign post. I think the one thing missing is Sonic should have a smile, not just because most the other sign posts have it, but it kinda gives him more of a sense of accomplishment.
Hez, is there any definite date on a possible release in the near future? The suspense is fucking killing me.
I agree, it looks better with a smile
This makes me happy, since it was the biggest obstical I thought I'd come by (minues catikiller)
Downloading the demo now. I won't be able to play this until morning now, I eagerly await playing this!
over all im glad you stuck with yours =P. Keeping it your own makes things simpler.
95 meg demo? Jesus Christ. Did you use nothing but compressed wav's or what?
