I wouldn't want GFZ to have to be remade either.

(For those who don't know, I made Blossom Gardens)

And here are some suggestions of mine from the non-disscusion topic:

Or maybe straight versions of them, where they stick out from one wall to another. That one would seem more useful.

EDIT: I think that Sonic 2, Wing Fortress is what I meant. This could be used as another use for the tails pick-up frames as well as when being carried by flying characters like Tails at last!

Eggbomb:(There are two versions for this)

Mini-Eggbomb:

Description: Eggman head shaped, small (about the size of one of the things used for the NiGHTS Hoops) and black.
What it does: Detonates very shortly after you come near it, causes a weak explosion (Same as the Bomb and Grenade rings' explosions), flashes red then black again continuously, while having the deton sound for the beep.

Eggbomb:

Description: Similar to the Mini-Eggbomb, but it is much larger (Just larger than a Deton) and red.
What it does: Same as the Mini-Eggbomb, except the explosion is much stronger (Maybe as powerful as an armegeddon shield explosion!), but takes much longer to detonate, and has the alarm sound for the beep. It is also pushable. O.O

Both could also be used as weapons for enemies, bosses, or even players!

They would basically be normal diagonal springs that have the 'nogravity' flag on. This would allow Knuckles to climb directly onto the spring from any direction (as long as they are facing the right direction for it to work, of course)!

1. Maybe you could add in Bone scenery for Arid Canyon?

2. I wonder if it's possible to make one of those polyobjects go around an axis; possibly with a choice of it go around in one of two ways:
1- with one side always facing the axis, or
2- with only the polyobject's posistion changing, so that one side always faces the same direction.

But once you let go of the directional button you used to push it (Most likely forward, but any direction in the case of having analog control on!), it will make you bounce off it with great force, while it moves back to it's original position.
I'm thinking that when you bounce off it, you will be spinning, and will be launched off the ground - not by a tremendous bit though...

Or maybe a special FOF that's Downwards and Upwards movement speeds can be adjusted separately - meaning you can have it going down like a crusher, but go up much slower.

Here are some more...

*A special linedef executor that is activated when a player holds spin on the sector it's tagged to.

I got this idea from Marble Zone in Sonic 3, where spinning in certain spots makes platforms rise and allow you to reach areas that you couldn't reach when they weren't there.

*How about a special part of the Super Sonic level feature Super Sonic flying - where he continuously moves forward through the level, while you can make him go upwards, downwards, strafe left or right using the directional buttons?

*How about wall crushers? (I think this might have been suggested already...)

Well, I had this idea based on them - why don't you make it possible to create ice slides as well, for our own levels (I don't think it would be needed for the actual game without modifiactions)? They would be similar to the water ones, but you instead are forced to slip down a slide made entirely of slippery ice. Then holes could be made on them to increase the difficulty, and you might have to jump off them onto more ice slides, until you land on a place without ice or crash into a wall. I think they would as be fun to play as the water ones...

EDIT:I think it would be a better idea just to have a pinball board as part of a level, rather than having the whole level being the pinball board.
I was thinking of something like Sonic Spinball and Sonic Heroes, and Casino Night Zone in Sonic 2...

There could also be some pushable ones, that start off on land, are pushed into the water, and they float!
If you dislike the fact that I'm bringing up these points to disscuss about, please don't post about it! Instead, just ignore it.
