there is currently a problem with her hair being stuck in place (in software) when gravity flips and her sprites being jumbled in the special stages

(in open gl with 3d models turned on) her whole head is stuck in place and her model remains headless until gravity is flipped back the worse part is in special stages where her whole body scatters making it really hard to know where u are

as for the character itself it's one of my top 5 and I really love her characterization in this mod, the cute pose she does whenever a stage is completed, her running animation, the ability to spam crouch and her attacks being references to fighting vipers she's a 9/10 on visuals, 9 because I would've loved an idle animation

it'll be a 4.5/5 when she's fixed

Nice to see a balanced and reasonable use of custom buttons. Also nice to see a character like this getting some love. I'd probably recommend disabling the Hyper Mode button combo while she's in her super form.

I encountered a minor bug when I finished GFZ2 in Hyper Mode, then did two special stages and was stuck with either a permanently full meter or the /appearance/ of a permanently full meter when I loaded GFZ3. Also, my game data corrupted while I was working on a run with her, but that might be a coincidence.

Also, some weird shit happens with her model both in special stages and when gravity flips in ERZ.

This is really good, it's a complete character with cute art and fun movement mechanics. Sprites are consistent and quality and fit in just fine.

I love this character, it's one of my favourites in SRB2.
I enjoy the movement, abilities, hair colour change and I am very fond of the design of Honey The Cat.

using her hyper mode in record attack corrupts level mod save data.
to the extent of it crashing the game regardless of having the character added before hand.

Phenomenal mod! I'm so happy my girl's getting the love she deserves and she's incredibly fun and slick to play as.
My only gripes are that flipping gravity around causes her sprite to glitch out and leave a copy of her hair behind (and when using Jeck Jim's 3d model, her whole head gets left behind and tbh it kinda creeps me out. Please look into this and try to find a way to fix it if possible (I think the glitch has something to do with the lua error that appears when you flip gravity.) Thanks!

Honey is an interesting character to play as. I'll be honest, her moves are flashy, but she's quite difficult to play as... doesn't gain the height Tails or Knuckles can and cant go as fast as Sonic, meaning she's mostly like Amy... which makes sense.

+ Interesting playstyle with a lot of moves
+ Super Honey!

/ The music when activating Hyper Mode seems... goofy and anti-climatic. Unless this is a reference to Fighting Vipers, wouldn't it make more sense to play a small remix/snippet of Everything? (The song for Super Sonic in STF)
/ After collecting the 7th Chaos Emerald and reaching Egg Rock Act 1, I noticed that she would randomly leave copies of her hair and ears behind...

- Because she has a lot of moves, it easy to accidentally use the wrong one and kill yourself, or for a new player to find her frustrating more than anything.
- Activating Hyper Mode is tricky, at least for me. Usually trying to press J+S+C1 ends up either not activating Hyper Mode or gliding to my death...

I personally wouldn't recommend Honey to anyone unless they were a fan of Sonic the Fighters.

She's my favorite Sonic character, easy 5/5 stars

another common light dasher W, however, may I ask how you can actually change the dress color? ive tried h_dresscolor or H_dresscolor to no avail, and the character overview didnt go over the command. other than that, thank you for all your hard work!!!

The same way you'd change your colour on any other character c; through the player screen

I'm split on this creation of Honey The Cat. On one hand her combos are fun. One the other hand, Hyper mode requires 3 inputs at the same time.
More often than not, you'll go flying off to your death trying to trigger it.

Hyper mode is crucial to getting around, where speed and distance are required. This makes Honey The Cat unviable in certain level packs.

3 stars. She's situational at best.

Great job with both the character and the update, I just love how you brought this cute but kinda forgotten cat to this game.

But even if I love this, there's some little troubles with the update, like, if you use the Moon Jump you can't press jump to use your Cat Pounce and for some reason you'll always do a Cat Pounce if press jump while on mud (like the one on castle eggman), just 2 little errors I found while playing casually.

For the rest this is just great, good sprites, fun playability and the fact that you no longer use 2 wings on the Cat Pounce just makes it even more useful. I would say it's more of a 9/10 than a 4/5, so 5 stars for you, sir!

PD: Sorry for the repost, but I just found another weird glitch, randomly Honey decided to start doing a Cat Pounce + Moon Jump combo everytime I tryed doing a Moon Jump, launching me at high speed in a perfect 45° angle, I though it was something with the terrain, as I tried to Moon Jump out of a slope, but then it kept happening no matter where I was, and went on like that until this weird combo throwed me off a cliff, when I respawned it was fixed, so I went back to that slope, tried redoing it, but nothing happened, once I died it just stopped, weird stuff isn't it?

This is impressive. Not only the colours are an eyecandy, but having a character which plays as a mix between a 3D platformer and a 3D beat-em-up is extremely cool. I wish there were more mods like this. 5/5, would combo dashes and jumps only to fly off the map again!

The effort put into the sprites here is quite impressive, translating a lot of her signature moves and attributes to SRB2 pretty flawlessly. Her moveset, while sorta stiff, is quite unique.

I would love to see this maybe revisited with a fresh look on the moves, maybe momentum influencing the crouch and butt bash, or the pounce having more utility. Being able to pull off all the moves in the air for some mad combos.

I could very well spitball all day about how you'd rework the character, that's just how interesting this moveset is despite the flaws. Overall this is definitely worth the download, especially for BattleMod fans.

[review deleted and reformatted — sorry for any confusion!]
After having played this character for… (checks release date) about two months now, I think I can finally leave a fair review.

Honey is absolutely one of my favorite SRB2 add-ons to date. She's not too simple, but not too complicated — using Jump, Spin, Custom 1, and nothing more — so the learning curve isn't as steep. Her mobility feels absolutely wonderful and the sprites have so much personality to them, and I can honestly say I've come to appreciate the character itself more due to this addon alone.

Particular things I like about the mod:
Using Cat Pounce in the air for that forward thrust feels so nice when correctly applied. It's almost like a more natural-feeling thok. The ability to use it twice is also very fun for traversing gaps and the like.
I also enjoy the auto-attack she has when close to other enemies. Though this isn't the first instance of this gimmick, it works well with her kit and maintaining momentum.
The Wings system overall is also great. She may only have two wings, but they're somehow just enough to both remain airborne for large amounts of time and still be back to the ground to recharge without breaking the flow.

Iffier things:
The Moon Kick is about what's you'd expect. It's definitely not a bad thing — goes well with her kit, as does everything else — but it's not something I particularly loved or hated. She wouldn't be the same character without it, though, with it being the main starter to a chain.
Hyper Mode is a fun little thing as well, but there aren't many places in simpler levels where you can find a good use for it. It can lead to crazy skips in the right places, but I also feel like the character would feel relatively the same and possibly closer to vanilla SRB2 without it. Might have preferred it to somehow be locked behind a wall of some sort (other than the 25 rings requirement), like a gauge or maybe 1-2 emeralds?
Butt Bop also feels somewhat limited in application, but I don't often engage in combat while playing levels, so I don't have much complaint there. With rows of single-hit enemies it feels super fun, but when faced with more ranged enemies like Robo-Hoods or Jetty-Syns, or dealing with multiple Sir Lance-a-bots, it feels kinda obsolete compared to other options.

Things I DIDN'T like:
None! The secondcolor support, the Candy mode, the custom idle animation that really gives off the fighting game vibe, and the super clutch Ukemi — it's all there, and it's all great. While some characters get a little tired after repeated plays or just feel a little too far from SRB2's style, this one never loses its charm and I continue to enjoy it. Great work on this and your other characters, light dasher!

I can absolutely see the inspiration behind the meter, that being the Wirebug from Monster Hunter Rise. The regeneration on the ground, the cap of 2, even the things you do with it. (if it wasn't intentional, then it's a huge coincidence.) Given that I love that game and the wirebug mechanics, i instantly fell in love with how honey controls. You might call the recovery "Tech", but I know that it's just the Wirefall. At this point, just give her the wiredash, wall run, and temporary third use, and you got the full package.

Honey is like R-00 in Rivals, Really fun if you know how to play as her. with an extremely high skill ceiling, unfortunately, my brain quite small, so i can't use Honey to her full potential. but she's still really fun to play. and i enjoyed testing her.

While I am not necessarily the biggest Honey fan, I adore how her design interacts with the SRB2. The concept of the gameplay is interesting but the execution could leave a lot to be desired. For example, her kitty pounce does not do any damage which is especially frustrating since you need a somewhat complicated bind of c1 + spin + jump to perform this move. Her moves in battle are short ranged, awkward to use, where it's worsened by her meter. Her overall special moves could be used more intuitively and incorporated better as gameplay where she could use a buff of some sorts. I do like her generally tho which is why I think this needs improvement because it has potential

No more portlegs, it's time for the real deal and she's alright i guess.

After playing Honey for a bit, i can say that she's decent. The sprites are really nice! But the complicated moveset is too hard for me to control. It would be cool if you made the stomp was jump-spin instead of jump-jump. I might have to update this review.
