Just because it can be done with socs doesn't mean that it shouldn't be added. Also, you'd need to make new sprites to use Prime's soc, whoever made them refuses permission to use them.

Software rendering limits only affect what you see. In 2D mode, you can't see the whole level, so it doesn't matter.

Well, when ever I make a 2d level quite long, it creates a HOM-esque sky, and control sectors become visible. Any longer, and even the 3d mode of SRB2DB refuses to run it

Well, that's pretty much a thok barrier problem right there, and you just just move the control sectors to the other side of the map.

Surely if it were a thok barrier problem, it would not fix itself if you shorten the map? Or are you referring to size of thok barrier?

Thok barrier thickness can be a problem. I like to keep my thokbarrier about 32-64 wide. Also, thok barrier heights can be problematic, so you might want to experiment with that.

No. Only possible on stages like AGZ, and would look weird in Software mode anyway.

and also fix the fall sprites for sonic, when he's falling he looks scared, why would sonic be scared, he's fallen higherplaces then that example: on SA he jumps of the egg thingamabob
Why fix what isn't broken? Admittedly we could use some better Sonic falling frames, but not for the reason you suggested. The sprites are uneven and aren't that consistent with the rest of the sprites.

And make it so when you go of a ledge he dosent just show his running sprites, have it like sa2 without the light dasher, homing and analog
No. No. No! There's a reason it doesn't do that in SRB2. Because it's not based on SA, it's based on Sonic 3. It does have some SA-isms, but most of it is more true to the classics.

It does that in SA mode, so yeah, that probably shows it's intentionally not done.

Seconded.

Once on IRC Shuffle was talking about how he wanted to put something like that in Shufflarb2, and I told him to do it the way very similar to the way you just said but he wouldn't do it.

Making it change the THING covers all items and such. It can change the type of spring, and the direction.

Also;

Sector Type - Remove Thing Gravity (removes the gravity of any things within the sector (on an FOF, use invisible intangible))
I think that's better than just a spring destination thing. If you really have to change the thing's original placement, have a linedef executor teleport the thing to another location. How? Have a linedef change a sector's tag to a teleport, and set the Trigger of the teleport to Continuous. That will move the thing, and like the suggestion I made above, should change the type of spring and angle if needed, that is; if you tag all three linedef executors to the same sector. Not to mention, if you remove the spring's gravity, you don't have to use a solid FOF under it, allowing it to float in the air without any unnecessary disturbances.
It's not hard, really.

Why do you hate 2d mode? The jettys allready do that anyway. Putting in ramming (sp) enemies from the side is fun!

It's just that enemies behave like they are in a 3D world, while players can only behave like they are playing in a 2D world. This gives enemies cheap ways to attack you when you can't attack them (horizontally moving enemies).

Level designers use that intentionally.

We could use the Multi flag to change it in case the level designer wants it.

I was more refering to bosses than enemies, bosses will always behave improperly in 2D mode.

Except Bowser, of course. He's made for 2D mode.

That would probably mean that one sprite for each letter would have to be above the character's head. Which would cause slowdown.

Actually, they could edit the void(Not sure what the real term is)for drawing strings to draw scaled strings to use for this.
