Maple Tundra Zone
Canadian Bacon Zone
Hockey Tundra Zone :v:
Rough Riding Zone?
Actually, I'll be amazed if the final name isn't a stereotype in some way. =P
How about we have Sonic enter an area where syrup has already been laid down, and eggman has hockey stuff on and is shooting slap shots at Sonic. </rediculousidea>
Some art I made for this level a week or two ago, as I really don't like my art that's in the fist post of this topic.
I think I have a good name for the zone. How about Maple Vista Zone? I saw the mountains and the waterfalls in the background and the first word that came to mind was the word "vista."
Maple Frost Zone could work, too; it's not a winter stage, but "autumn" in the name just doesn't seem to do the stage justice.
Since it's a Canadian-themed level filled with maple trees, I agree that maple should be part of the name.
As for the Robotnik fight, there should be something involving the maple trees in the zone. There's so many of them that it'd be a shame for Robotnik to let them go to waste, and you know how Robotnik loves messing with the environment. My first thought was something involving maple leaf whirlwinds. Maybe Sonic has to avoid the whirlwind Robotnik creates (kind of like in Sonic 3's Hydrocity fight) while he sucks up the leaves. There could be a giant fan to suck up the leaves with on the bottom with a spike in the center. Then when Robotnik gets low enough, you could have a chance to hit his machine before he shoots a condensed ball of leaves out of the cannon at the front.
What do you think? Sound good?

The only thing bothering me is that it doesn't look much polygon-like(in my opinion), and that it has some messy pixels.
Misconception; health care isn't free in Canada, it's socialized.
When I saw this topic, I was expecting something extremely stereotypical, but was pleasantly surprised when I saw the art. Then I saw you guys' comments... Thanks for not deceiving. :P
Anyways, Maple Zone sounds too minimalistic, although I do like the mention of Maple in the title; seems very fitting with the general theme. Maple Mountain doesn't sound too bad, same with Maple Hill although it feels tacked on. How about one of these:
Maple Haven Zone
Maple Track Zone
Maple Acre / Acres Zone
Maple Pass Zone
Maple Cross Zone
Maple Kicksyourass Zone
Come on, the theme has to be a remix of this if we want the Canadian vibe.
I think a standard Maple Hill would be fine, seeing as no other zone in the project is going with the Hill title. I think it adds something new while still harking back to the classics.
Can you please stop joking about Canada and all? The canadian adjective was there for the main idea of the environnement. The zone doesn't take place in canada or whatever
You have to put a Tim Horton's somewhere in the background.
I know it's a joke, but NOOOOOOOOO. Tim Hortons is awful, and I hate that it's such a big fucking part of Canadian culture. But I'll spare my theatrics in this thread.
This zone is shaping up quite nicely. Like the rest of the project, can't wait to see it finished. If I figure out a way to help, I will.
It was a mix between a joke and just messing with Phoebius
I know. ;P
Well I still stand by my previous statement of music choice.
Although an homage to this would be cool -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8PZ8-cpWc4 -- though I suspect that it would just end up being EHZ's BGM if you did that.
Definitely. I like that song. I also love the Maple Highway elements. Does anyone else like the "multiple-environment" idea for this game, you know, like, metaphorically speaking, merging the bad future and good future into one single act? Canadian wilderness, then elevated highway, right beside each other. I don't know, I just like having more than one type of terrain within two minutes.
I totally love these ideas. Just a small tim hortons sign in the bg, thats all :v:
Maybe incorporate some elements or cues from it into the theme. As long as it doesn't sound too samey, I like this idea.
You're killing me here, seriously.
Don't worry, I love canada :v:
Better idea, Sonic ends at a Tim Horton's restaurant
Next zone: Tim Horton's Zone.
Fight the evil BLT badniks.
