Single Player Levels Multiplayer Levels SOCs Sprites/Graphics

May not work properly with Mania or Classic.wad mods.

It had to happen soon or later, so why not multiple levels at once? Dimension Glaber is a collection of just about every level I worked on. Almost every map in this pack finally receiving their first ever revision from when they were first released from years ago, or even Last Year's SUBARASHII.

Just about almost everything about this pack is recycled from my past. Including the pack's name! This mod was originally started as a way to keep my maps up to date should I want to recycle more rooms for future maps, and it grew from there.

All the levels are Pseudo-sorted by era and theme. Plus there are even 2 secret exits in levels to find.

As of right now, there are no emblems to collect as I have nothing for them to unlock.

Oh man, I've been waiting to try this!

Spoiler: Gif ahead
Finally, a map that can show off what Classic.wad is really capable of with the right level design mindset! Here we go!

O h .


Really though, I am quite enjoying what this level pack has to offer in terms of sloped terrain so far! However, I would like to suggest using the spring fix that Lach and MK are using because some areas require you to spin.

There's a horizontal spring fix?

Is it public?

EDIT: (it's a fix for analog mode players and tag mode)

Got to Mystic Castle Zone 1, heard a demonic moaning sound, and aptly closed the game. Sorry for being a pansy. I'll review the entire thing when I play it in the daytime though! ^^

From what I played, I don't even know if it's necessary for me to give a review. I assume most of these are maps you're either done with, or are using to draw inspiration from for future maps. The maps I played were all fun, despite not being up to community standards. It's cool seeing your interpretations of those game gear levels, and whatever Diamondus is based on.

That Moaning sound was actually taken from the Halloween Tech demo and used by both the ghosts and Specters (custom red variant). Sounds to me that you've hit my old Halloween levels.

A Majority of these maps are in fact from my past. Before I even started collecting together the maps, the idea behind the pack was at first to just update everything incase I wanted to recycle parts of my old stages later, but then I realized I had enough content for a playable level pack. Only one level was made specifically for this pack and it's the current final map in the single player/co-op campaign.

Daimondus was actually based on the levels from Jazz Jackrabbit episode 1 and pulls its textures from it as well. The reception to the textures didn't go over all that well and it's why the multiplayer Daimondus stages don't use them now.

It totally is public! Anyone is allowed to use it wherever they want if they want horizontal springs to transfer player flags properly (well, at least without the current bugs with the way vanilla handles it). It's recommended if you are making maps that are compatible with Tag/HnS, or if you care about players who play using analog mode. Otherwise it's not really necessary.

Man, these levels really trip me up. You have 1.09.4 Crawlas and Silver Ring Monitors in one room and in the next one there's polyobjects and slopes. I think it's fun for what it is, though yeah nothing up to current standards. I also want to call attention to those MAPJ* levels that look like they would be for an unlockable (one of them is called like the level pack) but they're all glitched up the butt, can't be beaten, and pretty sure can't even be accessed without the console.

All that aside,

bruh

I don't know if it's like that for authenticity reasons (in which case you can ignore the rest of the post) but that can be reduced a bit. I got it down to 60 MB (45 when wadzipped) by messing with the MP3s some. I could send you the file if you're interested.

The size isn't like that for authenticity reason. It's really is like that because of the MP3 files. So yea, I am interested.

You could've put Sapphire Frost Zone as a standalone for SUBARASHII Glaber.

Had a chance to play through this level pack, It's fun I guess, however not without issues, the level areas spacing is inconsistent, some are huge with no purpose or very little detail and some are so small and sometimes cramped making navigating them a pain in the neck, feels like they belong in a corridor shooter, I also I enjoyed the NIGHTs Special Stages, not many people make NIGHTs maps nowadays, understandable because it's confusing af.

Overall it's a mixed bag, some levels are quite interesting and some others overstay their welcome.

Quite understandable as most of the levels before Medivo act 1 were made when 1.09.4 was the current version.

I suspect one of the levels that overstayed was daimondus act 2? Some of the maps like it I do plan on replacing with whole new versions of them while what's there now will go into the museum. (This mod's future archives unlockable)

By the way, don't be afraid to let me know what levels are the ones overstaying their welcome. I may go back to revise or replace them.

Welp, I played the whole mod on my school bus. :P. But I wanted the good ending, but I stopped at Bellherst, it's to difficult for me. ;-;

I wasn't aware that these levels were open to critique or that you'd be modifying them in any way! If that is indeed the case then I do have a few suggestions for the pack. Feel free to not respond to any of these suggestions if they're already planned.

Spoiler: Huge post about the SP levels incoming
-Both Diamondus acts are pretty ok for me, but I feel like they could utilize slopes more.

-Just a note, going through the level pack normally for some reason skips Emerald Coast and Emerald Cove Zone
--Emerald Cove is pretty ok, I would vary the textures a bit more but I don't know where exactly would be fitting to do so. Also, MOAR SLOPES.

-Mystic Castle Zone feel a bit too cramped to me, perhaps making the corridors wider and rounding off the turns would alleviate this somewhat? Mixing up the textures a bit would help here too.
--You should probably lessen the enemy spam near the end of act 1 outside the castle itself before the last checkpoint, the Buzz noises stack into this cacophony of BEES. Three or four of each would be plenty in that area.
---Less enemy spam in general for that area, two Castlebots facing each other on opposite sides of the jail corridor at the end would be fine and one of each of the Jetty-syns is also fine.

-White Halloween Zone could definitely use more sloped terrain.
--Actually, having played through it again just now, White Halloween just feels a little bit bland in comparison to the rest of the levels, act 2 needs a lot more stuff to do in terms of platforming and enemies and whatnot and it really needs a touchup on visuals.

-I really like Haunted Manor and the Hang Castle/Mystic Mansion vibes it gives off, I would like to see some different textures for the walls though, all of the Zim textures are really one-note.
--Maybe give this one a little bit of an upscale as well, it's not nearly as cramped feeling as Mystic Castle was but it's still a little small.
--Act 2 must have a bunch of those neo-driller enemies somewhere because I keep hearing their charging sounds throughout the main gravity switching section. Please replace those enemies with something else.

-Please use the updated christmas textures that MotorRoach posted in the SUBARASHII editing thread in the christmas levels.
--Also, please make the exit for Frozen Battery a little more obvious.
---The Christmas levels in general kinda overstay their welcome.

-Rusty Bucket Bay could use the actual music from the source.

-Scrap Brain Zone feels like it'd be out of place with all the visual and mechanical polish that you've given the other levels, and it feels like it would overstay its welcome when put in alongside other updated levels.

-Emerald Lake is pretty good, I wish there was more slope play than just at the end.

-Emerald Flower Zone is my 3rd favorite level in this pack. The level looks delightful for having primarily GFZ textures, I love the usage of slopes here too.

-Sapphire Frost Zone is my second favorite level purely based on gameplay, the only thing I would like to see changed is a bit more scenery objects littered throughout the stage, again, from the updated Christmas texture pack that Motor posted. Something like snow-covered bushes and some different trees sprinkled in or a lamp post or two would really make things a little more lively.

-Skytop is hands down my FAVORITE SRB2 stage, period. There is no advice I could give to make the zone better, the scenery is beautiful and colorful, the custom neo-drillers by Toaster fit well with the stage, there's no enemy spam, there are plenty of secrets, the level design really matches what I think a good classic stage feels like in SRB2.

-Minvs Is an interesting boss and I would love to see a full stage before him! There are some tweaks I would make to the boss design though.
--Slow him down a little, as he is he feels too fast and hard to keep track of.
--Maybe limit the amount of projectiles he can have out at a time to 2, keeping track of not only him but several other projectiles makes him really hard to navigate around whilst keeping hold of your rings.


Overall, I can see how much you've improved over time! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what you have in mind for updating these levels!

responce in the spoiler
Spoiler:
-there's a reason that Emerald Coast and Cove are skipped during normal game play. They're hidden levels and require you to find hidden exits. The changelog in the main post will tell you what level one of these exists can be found in.

--Believe it or not, Emerald Cove is just a cover for what the level really is. If you've played Emerald Lake later on in the pack, take another look at this stage. You can find another big hint to what the stage was really if you play around with no clip at the start.

-you know, Some slopes may actually help with White halloween's problem. (Not all by it self for anyone else reading)

-Haunted Manor act 2 has No Drillas of any kind. What you should be hearing is the wind sound effect from SRB2 Halloween Tech

-I'll consider using the new Xmas textures on some of the stages.

-Rusty Bucket may wind up with just a midi track, I'm considering booting out Spiral Mountain's mp3 too due to extra sound effects.

-Emerald lake wasn't designed with true slopes in mind from the get go due to at the time using pseudo slopes. That said, I could probably still find a few more spots for them.

-Toaster just did the Lua code for Neo-Drilla. I was the one who did the graphics for it.
