Meet the characters

Dirk_CSS-Art.png


Dirk The Husky

A cyrokinetic young husky who likes to enjoy going on adventures with his friends. Using his ice abilities to help me reach high places and even run across water. He also relies on the ability to spindash to destroy his enemies.
Players will find Dirk handy to reach grounds that tails can.

Abilities:
Main abilities:
Ice Platforms (Double Jump):
attachment.php


Inspired from Cloud Mario from Super Mario Galaxy 2. Dirk can spawn up to three platforms when he's in the air. However, after you spawn one, it will vanish after a few seconds so be quick and mindful on where to spawn them. Use them to your advantage in platforming if you got what it takes!

Ice Surf (Spin while rolling and holding down forward):
attachment.php


WHERE. IS MY. SUPER SUIT?! With a running start, Dirk can travel through the air using ice surf for 6 seconds. To start it, press spin while rolling and holding down forward. Holding Jump while ice surfing to ascend higher, but your speed will also be cut in half. Releasing spin while ascending makes Dirk hop off his ice surf to end it. Dirk rapid tints the skincolor your using when you have half the energy left and the ice surf trail starts to fade out. Trying to perform this ability when walking will send Dirk into his spin state.

Other players can ride on the ice surf trail in friendly gametypes. This is on by default, but you can turn if on and off anytime with the "dirkpickup" command in the console.

Frost Walker (Passive ability):
attachment.php


With the cyrokinesis energy surrounding him, Dirk can walk on water with ease while spawning ice under his feet. Though be a bit careful when using this move on rising water. You can cancel this ability by spindashing.

Shield Abilities:
Nothing new when Dirk gets any shield. He will perform the same abilities as normal.

Whirl_CSS-Art.png


Whirl The Ram

A very optimistic and cheerful lad who assist Dirk in any way he can. With his horns made out of wood and a very resilient head, charging into enemies is his main way of attacking. He also has aerokinesis to make up for not having the ability to spindash. Players will find Whirl useful to speed through the zones while bashing through obstacles.

Abilities:
Main abilities:
Propeller Fly/Drill (Double Jump, then pressing Jump or Spin afterwards):


Inspired by the Propeller Suit from the New Super Mario Bros. series. Whirl uses his Aerokinesis to thrust himself upwards while spinning. After the liftoff, he will descend down very slowly, but his speed is also cut down. No need to hold down jump while performing this ability as it is used for another purpose after performing the propeller fly.

By pressing jump or spin while descending, Whirl will drill down to the ground at high speed. Upon landing, enemies near a radius will be damaged. You can even damage enemies from above while performing this move to bounce off. However you're vulnerable once you made your move. You can break bustable floors with this move to take Amy/Fang routes and drilling into vertical and diagonal sprites will give you a boost.

Ram Charge (Holding down spin when on the ground):

Based on Spyro's charge from his games. Whirl will use his horns to batter enemies while running at high speed. You can even jump while using this move. Controlling through the zones will be a challenge for you're charging. You'll slow down when you make contact with enemies and bonk off walls and any enemies that have more than one HP. Master this ability and you'll become the unstoppable ramming machine.



This move can heavily be interacted with many objects in the game. Ramming into horizontal springs will really send you flying depending which color spring you hit. You can even break through bustable walls and spikes!

Shield Abilities:
Nothing new when Whirl gets any shield. He will perform the same abilities as normal.

Vesola_CSS-Art.png

Vesola the Bee

A chlorokinetic intelligent bee who often likes to be calm and focus on her studies. She can summon plants to either assist her teammates, or send badniks flying off the ground. She can also use her stinger to strike enemies from above!

Abilities:
Main abilities:
Petal Twirl (Jump in mid-air, then hold down jump)

After jumping, hold down jump to start twirling and ascend high in the air. Surrounding yourself in a barrier made out of flower petals. You can use this to damage foes that can fly. When the jump button is release, you will ascend slowly down to the ground. The time of your petal twirl depends on how long you held down the jump button.

Sting Strike (Spin in mid-air)

Press spin in mid-air to use your stinger and strike down to attack. You can bounce on badniks while destroying them with this move. This move can be used on bustable floors and springs.

Vine Spike (Spin on the ground)


On the ground, tap the spin button to spawn in 3 spikes made out of bramble vines that comes out of the ground. Use them for battling against enemies that are on the ground! The vines have two properties:
1- Enemies that touch the vines will be destroyed and the vine that damaged them despawn.
2- If the enemy is underneath the vine spike and the spike pops out. The enemy will be set flying high to the sky, leaving it destroyed afterwards.

Flower Boost (Spin while charged)

When the spin move is charged, release spin to plant in a flower. Jumping off of it will give you a jump boost and the flower despawns. You can then perform your abilities from it! Even other players can use your flower that you planted!



Dirk-Whirl-CSS.png

attachment.php

When two combine their powers as one!

With Dirk and Whirl, nothing will stop them! Dirk take charge while Whirl follows along. With the Dirk and Whirl option, you can perform a special ability. Stand in the same position as Whirl and jump when the arrow indicator shows up.


Dirk will grab on to Whirl while Whirl performs the Propeller Fly move. While flying you can press spin to drill down or press jump to hop off! Combine Dirk and Whirl's move to maximize your height.



Whirl can also ride on Dirk's Ice surf trail to travel far and high! Both team abilities can also be used in Co-op in netgames, try these moves with others and show Eggman what teamwork really means!

Awesome Mod! But theres a bug with Flower Spring.

If you spring when its still appearing you can make it be usable forever or just make it dissapear.

A lot of changes I see... It was worth the wait 100%! You not only added a character but changed some things of Dirk and Whirl so I will rate them as well.

Vesola - 5 Stars :

Vesola has really great moves for the fact that she can't spin, Her flower jump is very helpful and due to her double jump, zones are now more of a breeze. Her spikes make enemies hard to hit, I'm not complaining because this makes Bosses a JOKE. And I could tell that you used metal knuckle's rocket lua, this was very smart because this doesn't make her as over powering. Great character!

Whirl - 5 Stars :

Whirl isn't my main but I still loved and played the dude a lot. There's so much changes I don't know where to begin... He ram charge feels smoother to control, the sprites for the wind is AWESOME (Same for his propeller jump), and I love the fact that he can drift! With the super shoes Whirl's ram charge is now the best boost I could ever ask for (even without the shoes the charge is super fast). Whirl's Battle ability isn't as strong but I'm not only happy you gave him one, but didn't make it powerful because of his ability set. Great job of Whirl!

Dirk - 5 Stars :

Honestly, I was expecting some surfing fixes and allowing him to dance while super. While you didn't deliver it, I still love Dirk. His Surfing ends when you float up a little is alright but I love the new ice sprites you gave him. His battle mod is actually great! His last one was a bit annoying mainly because people would just spam jump as soon they were frozen. Making it hard for Dirk to make a hit. Great job on Dirk as well.

So... replaying as Dirk and Whirl I accidentally hit a wall... they have PUSH FRAMES?!

Yeah... if the MB had more stars I would give this the full 20 stars (Push Frames being the other 5). This is one of my favorite mods because these were my first favorite OC's when I was new to SRB2. Thanks for this awesome update!

Thanks for the kind words. It does take a while to master the vine spikes. I'll perhaps do something about how far each spike is spaced out in some future update. As for the battle support, I didn't reuse Metal Knuckles' script for petal bullets. While they act as near as similar to them, its actually coded different. In fact, battle support had to be some challenge to overcome. Hopefully this updated battle support will do good. If not, there's always a plan B.
