A Backpack full of fun and high speed action, Skip & Jana join SRB2!

Welcome to StephChars! An OC pack created by yours truly focused on the Crystal Crash Team! I'll be updating this thread from now on when a new character or update is released. Without further ado, let's get this show started!

Stephchars OC Skip.png

A Fennec Fox with his trusty Backpack with anything he could ever need! Provided, he has enough resources to craft them. Skip brings Platformer action inspired by A Hat in Time!

Skip is all about using every tool at your disposal to deal with any situation. His Double Jump combined with his Dives can help him reach higher up places and cross large distances without breaking a sweat! Should you need to fit through tight spaces, you can slide on the ground to pick up speed on slopes in style!
And when all that fails, Skip can grab onto most ledges to help himself up a platform he almost missed. Careful though, diving into walls will stun you and fling you back!

But that's not all, folks! By tapping Jump while Crouching, Skip will reach into his backpack to craft any shield in the game, including most modded ones too! By spending Scrap he gains from badniks, bosses and ring monitors, Skip is prepared for any situation!
These aren't your run of the mill shields, however! Almost every shield give Skip's Dive a unique active ability alongside its passive. From wall jumps to powerful electric dashes, there's a lot to experiment with. Just be mindful with your spending!

Too lazy to test what each ability does? Here's a quick list!​
  • Wind Dive (Whirlwind): Get a large vertical boost for your first dive!​
  • Homing Dive (Electric): Well, does what it says on the tin.​
  • Rebound Dive (Force): Stun begone! Diving into a wall will make you safely jump off it.​
  • Meteor Dive (Elemental): Fly into the ground with massive force. Leave a fire trail while sliding!​
  • Atomic Dive (Armageddon): Charge up a dive and blast away! Overcharging will blow it up!​
  • Bounce Dive (Bubble): Plummet to the ground and bounce back up!​
  • Burst Dive (Fire): Gives your dives a stronger boost forwards, excellent for speed!​
  • Wire Dive (Lightning): Dash forwards in a straight line at blinding speeds​

Stephchars OC Jana.png

A deadly, agile Fox with Crystal Bracelets capable of generating an energy blade sharp enough to cut down anything! Well, almost anything at least. Paired with dashing and wall jumping, she's a force to be reckoned with! Jana brings high speed action inspired by Megaman Zero!

srb20203.gif


Jana excels at both combat and speeding through levels. Her sword is capable of slashing through any obstacle in front of her, unleashing quick combos and shooting short range projectiles. By holding down Spin, you'll be able to charge a powerful strike that pierces enemies and travels double distance to use whenever you like to.

Tired of dealing with enemies? Dash away at any time! By pressing C1 or double tapping any Direction (can be toggled), Jana will gain a powerful burst of speed that she can keep by jumping in the air. While in this dash state, your air control is improved, allowing you to take sharper turns and keeping your speed.

But that's not all! Jump into any wall to latch onto it and slide down it! You can now jump away and string together wall jumps to blast through levels! And as a nice little bonus, wall jumps don't reset your dash state!

And as you might have noticed, Jana has one last trick up her sleeve - The Rekkohua! Triple jumping will cause Jana to plummet down to the ground. Should she fall for long enough, energy pillars will spiral around her, dealing tons of damage! Be very careful though, while in this state she cannot latch onto walls!​

I was sceptical at first, because OC's usually aren't my go to for characters, But Skip is now one of my all-time favourite characters to play as! He's so fun! Jana is alright as well, She isn't bad don't get me wrong, It's just i prefer Skip is all.

Overall, a MUST HAVE character pack, definitely in my top 3

The entire reason why I downloaded this was for Skip. Yeah sure I did play Jana a little but my focus is on Skip. He is so cool, and I have AHiT so his controls feel very similar and easy. The super form is also amazing, being able to swap all sheilds and... SPAM ARMAGEDDON. In general, including Jana, this is a very amazing mod.
