Aren't they easy enough to work with ?, You just have to slope the FOF Control sector .

Whoa

My computer broke down a while ago so I haven't really checked on SRB2 recently, but this is one of the few things that has managed to make me feel something resembling 'Joy'

The hype is real.

I really think it would be cool if there were new characters in the update.

In the classic games there were only three, why should there be more in SRB2?

Knuckles' Chaotix says hi. On a related note, I REALLY can't stand it when people say "The Classics did/didn't do this, so we should/shouldn't do the same." In my personal opinion, what should be done for the game is up to the game makers, not what some twenty-something year-old games dictate. Homing Attack? Sure, if you want to. Boost? Go ahead, it's your game, as long as it feels right to the game designers.

This is part of the reason why there aren't gonna add other characters besides the fact that most of the devs hate modern sonic games. If they truly wanted to go for the classic feel they only needed to implement the main three knowing that the others can be added by mods

While we do take a few creative liberties, we are actively striving to keep the spirit of the game in line with the classic games. The idea behind "the classics did/didn't do this" is to try and keep the game feeling like a classic game.

SRB2 is heavily inspired by the classics, intending to replicate their look and feel. What this means isn't that we should only do things that the classics did, but we should ask "Why did the classics do it this way?"

The classics did things they way they did for a reason. It's important to pay attention to the "why" far more than anything else. After all, some of those reasons are things like limitations of the Genesis, or they're honest design mistakes. On the other hand, most of those reasons are sound design, and when they are we try to keep them intact.

So then if I may ask, what reason does "only 3 characters" fall under? I would assume the main reason would be "because level design only gets harder the more characters you have to consider" but I'm curious if the developers have their own reasoning?

You've got the primary one. S3K is honestly brilliant in this regard, thanks to its usage of character-specific paths. Knuckles is frequently forced into his own content entirely, and Tails has a ton of optional paths you can take which often have higher rewards than the standard path. This allows all three characters to have their own content and make playing through the game again as a different character into a very different experience.

We're already spread a bit thin in trying to replicate this, so it would be even harder to make sure every character has content if we had more than three.

The extra characters are best as add-ons.

I also said that in my post earlier. Characters that aren't necessary or distinguished from the main ones can just be added through mods.

I think there's still room for one fourth unlockable character that shares abilities with each of the characters without excelling at any of them. Like, say, Vector- he's got the shoulder bash from Chaotix, so that's a weaker take on Sonic's thok. He climbs slower than Knuckles and can break walls, and then he could just swim in water as an analogue for Tails' flight.

Just saying, it's not like I'm pushing an agenda here or anything-

I also think that SRB2 would really benefit from a hidden unlockable fourth character. It has unlockable literally everything else except characters, and that always seemed off to me. The character doesn't have to have its own content or routes, as long as it provides a unique gameplay experience. I'm still incredibly happy that we even have 3 characters with their own content, but a fourth would be the icing on the cake.

I'd be afraid of adding an unlockable character just because it'd open the door to an unending stream of demands. "WHY HAVEN'T YOU ADDED SHADOW YET?! HE'S SO MUCH BETTER THAN [bonus character]!!"

If there was ever a hidden unlockable character it would either be UglyKnux™ SRB2TGF Sonic and/or another version of tails
