These 3 shields according to SRB2's wiki are unused variables. With this knowledge, people have filled those slots with completely custom shields, making really cool and somewhat situational shields. But no one as of yet, thought about recreating the three variables that haven't been. Until now.



Introducing the Flame Shield, Bubble Shield and Lighting Shield from Sonic 3 and Knuckles!

These shields works similar to semi.colon's S3K Shields lua (v1.5a/1.6) however, it is easily accessible for ALL characters! Not only can Sonic himself use them, but Tails and Knuckles can as well! This can easily be done when pressing the Spin button while jumping.

Flame Shield: Immune to Fire and Lava, but is lost when going in water.

Ability - Fire Dash: Dashes the player at a dynamic burst based on the player's speed with a hanging in midair effect, also leaves a fire trail during the dash.



Thunder Shield: Immune to electricity, and can attract rings. It also shorts out underwater.

Ability - Lightning Jump: A simple double jump.
Ability 2: Shocksplosion: When losing the Thunder Shield underwater, it will cause a 500*FRACUNIT nuke around the player, this can hurt other players in Match/CTF.



Bubble Shield: Protects the player from drowning in water and space, immune to chemical water.

Ability - Buoyant Bounce: Forcefully stops all momentum in midair and drops the player down to the ground to a simple bounce up (which also damages enemies 70*FRACUNITS near the player, after bouncing, the player can use their jumping ability as an option. When bouncing into goo water, if the player is under the goo water for more than two seconds, they will be bounced back up, unable to use any abilities until the player lands.



Flame Shield Monitor - Thing Number 420 blaze it

Bubble Shield Monitor - Thing Number 421

Thunder Shield Monitor - Thing Number 422

Version 2.3 features a few bug fixes that I missed for the shields in version 2.1, however, a new version of the shields are finally here to dazzle your eyes, just like in it's original appearance.


Yep, that's right, Sonic Mania's Elemental Shield sprites are here! They feature even more frames of animation compared to the originals, which means more and new sprites, more states, and just so much better to look at. ManiaS3KShieldsV2.wad is the name, and it's probably gonna be the default wad for S3K Shields knowing all of us. The original is still there if you're still feeling interested in the le olde nostalgia.

These shields have monitors that will spawn them and are reuseable to be inserted into a stage of your liking. However if you just want to play with them, keep an eye out for the vanilla shield monitors, as they may automatically be replaced by one of the 3 shields. With this you can have access to all of the shields in gameplay, but If you want to try them all out, add ShieldsTest.wad and warp to this map via Map Change or the map command:
Code:
map mapzz
AUTOMATIC KNOWN BUG: I already know that there are characters with spin-button-in-midair abilities that have support for the whirlwind shield, if these features DO become permanent or the level pack in question is using these, please inform the players that most characters cannot be supported by these shields and there is really nothing I can do about it as such.

To add to this, the replacing function is no longer a command, but an embedded function that will happen automatically, which may replace the vanilla shield monitors with one of the S3K ones. This SHOULD fix the issue with SRB2PlusC since the shieldreplace command was pretty... shoddy.

Version 2.3 is live! This mostly just kinks out the rest of the oversights and bugs like having your jump being cut short by the Lightning Shield, and most importantly...

Balancing the Fire Shield to not being an overpowered mess like it was before hand.
