It's been a long 2 months working on Modern Sonic. What was originally going to just be a port of ModernAbilities turned into an entire rewrite. With brand new effects, sounds, commands and more. It's been a blast making him and I really tried to make Modern Sonic feel authentic without changing his physics to feel out of place for SRB2. Without further ado, Here's ModernSonic!

Abilities:
Spoiler:
HomingAttack/DoubleJump: Sonic's midair ability is determined by if he has something to home in on or not. When near Enemies/Monitors/Springs, Sonic will launch at it with precision. Otherwise, Sonic will preform a second jump which is handy for gaining a bit of extra height or for platforming.

Boost: While on the ground, pressing and holding the Custom 1 button will allow Sonic to boost forward at breakneck speeds plowing and sending badniks flying into the air. You are invulnerable to enemies in this state however spikes, crushers, and deathpits can still harm you.

AirBoost: The air equivalent of the Boost. Use this to gain more distance in the air than you could with the doublejump.

Stomp: Pressing Spin anywhere off the ground will cause Sonic to plummet down to the ground creating a shockwave at the point of impact. This can be used to stop on a dime for platforming and damage enemies, and monitors alike.

Slide: While moving at just about any speed, press and hold spin while on the ground to perform a slide in the direction you are moving. It's essentially a replacement to the spin so use it to get under small gaps that only spinning players would be able to access.

Light Speed Dash: Using Custom 2 near a trail of rings allows Sonic to travel along the trail at "Light Speed". Useful for precise ring collecting or for levels that support the ability for alternate paths.

WallJump: Pressing jump and holding the direction of the wall while Sonic isn't on the ground allows Sonic to leap from the wall in the opposite direction gaining extra height and allowing for continued walljumps to gain heights only Knuckles and Tails can.

Super Sonic!: Using Custom 3 with all emeralds and 50+ rings will transform Sonic into Super Sonic. What new abilities will he have? It's up to you to find out!

Rush Mode: Filling your boost meter fully will have Sonic enter Rush mode granting infinite boost and a snazzy glow effect for a short period of time. Extend the timer by destroying enemies, collecting rings, and doing tricks! Speaking of...

Tricks: Pressing toss flag after hitting springs, steamjets, and dustdevils will have Sonic start performing tricks to fill his boost gauge. Though spamming it will result in diminishing returns. Press Jump or Spin to do the trick finisher rewarding you with even more Boost Energy.



Tips:
Spoiler:
*The Boost relies on Sonic's Boost Energy which can be seen in the meter at the bottom left of the screen.

*Replenish your Boost Energy by collecting rings and destroying/damaging enemies/bosses.

*Holding Spin above a certain speed while stomping will cause Sonic to transfer into a Slide, otherwise it acts as a normal Stomp.

*Holding Custom 1 after Boosting/AirBoosting will decrease the boost drain over-time.

*Boosting or Stomping into breakable FOF's will break them.

*Pressing Custom2 while LightDashing will cause Sonic to cancel the ability.

*While crouching or refraining to boost for 5+ seconds, Sonic will start to gain Boost Energy back. This is especially useful for levels that don't have too many rings or enemies to help replenish the Boost Energy normally.

*Jumping and holding the Jump button while Boosting will slow Sonic's midair speed. Use the Airboost to counteract this!

*The Doublejump slows Sonic's movement speed slightly.

*Stomping onto a spring will yield greater height similar to Amy's hammer.

*The Whirlwind Shield negates the slowdown effects of the Doublejump
and the boost while in the air. It also increases Sonic's Doublejump height.

*Pressing Jump as a trick finisher gives you bonus height.

*With SMS added, Modern can go Mystic Super. In this form you gain unlimited jumps underwater, a stronger Walljump, infinite Airboosts, and unlimited Boost Energy.


Commands:
Spoiler:
FootSteps: Toggles the custom footstep sounds as well with the custom landing/skidding sounds. Use On/Off

Voices: Used to Toggle/Choose the voice actor Sonic uses. Use 0-4 or the Voice actors first name. Choices are Ryan Drummond, Jason Griffith, Roger Craig Smith, or Jun'ichi Kanemaru.

LockOn: Used to toggle the reticle between ModernSonic's custom reticle or SRB2's build in reticle. Use ModernSonic/SRB2

Actionswap: Used to switch the Custom1 and spin actions.

Supermusic: Used to choose which music plays while Super. Choose between Custom, Normal, or Off


Adding Footsteps to Custom Textures:
Spoiler:
Add this bit into any Lua script that you have in your addon

if not ModernSonic_FlatSounds
rawset(_G, "ModernSonic_FlatSounds", {})
end

ModernSonic_FlatSounds["CUSTOMTX"] = "grass"
ModernSonic_FlatSounds["CUSTOMT2"] = "wood"

Replace "CUSTOMTX" with the name of the texture you want it to work for.
and replace "grass" or "wood" with any of the following sound types:

"grass", "dirt", "metal", "concrete", "wood"

Do note that Solid FOF's with a translucency will automatically use the glass sfx and liquids use the water sfx.


FAQ:
Spoiler:
Q:Why does Sonic DoubleJump instead of an airdash?
A:Because I wanted to implement Sonic Colors into this and the Doublejump is great for platforming. Something SRB2 has a lot more of than the modern games.


Known Bugs:
Spoiler:
*Stomping into a "bouncy" sector will cause Sonic's stomp to get stuck. Though it will cancel itself after 3 seconds.

*Sometimes when homing in on an enemy, you can get stuck trying to destroy them...but nothing happens

*Sometimes while boosting on certain Slopes, Sonic can get stuck until you stop boosting.

*Not all textures in the game are indexed for the footsteps. I tried to get all of the ones you happen to "run" into in the main campaign at least.

*Splitscreen is not fully supported.


Credits:
Spoiler:
Man...I Have a lot of people to thank for Modern Sonic being possible this time around.
No longer is he the shitty/buggy version he was in 2.1.
now with new effects, sounds, functions, commands, sprites AND more.
He's more than I ever expected him to be. Especially since he was originally going to just be a direct port from 2.1

Ahem- let's not get carried away.

Golden Shine: Thank you for helping me figure out how to make a lot of the effects look pretty good.
Bug testing early on.
Being a HUGE support when there were times I honestly wanted to give up.
Lending bits and pieces of your own code as well as helping with sounds, knowing you didnt have to but you did to help me succeed.
Thank you for reworking SMS' boost aura to work for Modern. It looks awesome!
Seriously this wouldnt have been possible without you.

MF_NOB(LACH)MAP: Thank you for helping me with so many of my Lua questions.
Special thanks for showing me how to use tables and use rawset among other things.
HUGE thanks for writing the sounds functions (The Footsteps/Voices)

Chrispy: Special thanks to creating and letting me use your SonicCE. A lot of people dont seem to like it but it's one of the better old Modern Sonic's
in my opinion.

Doom Flare: A personal friend. Thank you for making the old sliding frames and the original crouching frames.
Even though you were not getting anything in return, you did it because we're friends...I really appreciate that.

DrStephen: Massive credits to pretty much doing the entire sprite remake. this wouldnt have been finished if it weren't for you...

Inuyasha/K.S.: Thank you for letting me use and modify the transformation script and the laser wisp script from your Sonic Colors Blast 2 script.
This was my solution to not having transformation sprites in the CE Style. Thanks again for the original boss hud script
which this boost meter was heavily edited from.

Badz and Hitcoder: Thank you both for your own renditions of the lightdash and giving permission to use them.
I merged both together for a pretty fluent LSD....at least in my opinion

ManicTH14: Thanks for the original walljump SOC used from your Mighty you were working on. It was used in the 2.1 ModernAbilities
but repurposed and refined for 2.2 Modern up until V4.

Rumia1: Thanks for making the new underwater curl up sfx. It sounds more...echoy

Zipper: Thank you for reducing some code length in the Hud

TrickyTex: Added the new Ring engine sounds. Sounds super cool :)

SMS Alfredo: Made the first iteration of the Rush mode.

Bendy: Thanks for making the original design for the ...Modern redesign. it looks super rad. As well as some of the other sprites in the resprite.

Cyron: Thank you for adding I/O support into Modern. I had no idea what i was doing clearly. Also thanks for giving me the JP voices for Sonic and making my job so much easier.

Soap Surfin': Made the Smash pose trick sprite

Thank you to the Testers: DrStephen, Rumia, Emi, Zipper, and Shine

AAAND Last but not least

My sweet and loving girlfriend: For being supportive and lifting me up to finish this and helping me test early netgames and iron out some of the original larger bugs.
Special thanks for helping me with the new speedometer colors.

About SMS support, how do I pull it off? I am using Super Mystic Sonic like it says.

Here is a simple tutorial on what to do if you want to do it in single player:
1. Use botskin (so you change Sonic and Tails with Modern Sonic as playable character and Sms as a companion)
2. Get 50 rings (without having emeralds, if you have them, you'll turn into super Sonic)
3. Hold down custom action 3, so the Allied SMS will go into powershare mode
4. Press jump next to him while you have 50+ rings
5. If it worked, sonic should flash yellow, but with normal sprite instead of being super

As much as I enjoy this mod overall, I don't love the additions for V4 -- the rush color / boost / tricks I find to be more cumbersome and irritating than enjoyable. I think I'll probably stick with the 3.1 for now.

One of the things I'd love in a future update would be a way to remove or toggle the HUD to match the SRB2 / classic aesthetic (maybe with a number percentage instead of a boost gauge) instead.

I mean...if you wanna go back to an inferior version...with worse sprites, worse boost aura, worse walljump...loads more bugs...and no cool infinite boost ability....with special trick poses that embody Modern Sonic's personality...sure be my guest lmao. your loss honestly.

Are the previous 2.2+ releases of Modern available somewhere? This is/was my #1 favorite mod because I love the moveset, but the new stuff in v4 like the tricks/boost aura/infinite boost -- it just isn't what I liked about the character, so for me personally I just feel like it's not as fun; I don't like Sonic turning different colors and the dinging sound when it expires, not my favorite. So yeah it's just different strokes.

If you go through my posts, especially those on the main forum, you'll see how passionately I've advocated for your mod being included as a base option in the base game.

What I want, ideally, is a Modern homing and the thok, but the previous Modern and the new Neo come closest to how I like to play it.

I still think it's wild that NOBODY has tried this (seemingly) obvious mod... I guess it is too obvious? But it's weird bc nobody has done it. It's an after-image of the Mystic effect, I think.

I'm not even sure, but if you use the WayBack Machine, you might see the old v3.1 version around somewhere.

Thankfully I still had a 3.1 in my downloads folder... I had generally been of the habit of replacing each new update and deleting the old one to keep my Addons folder tidy, so I didn't even realize I wanted the earlier version until after I played 4.0... then realized I couldn't re-download it AFTER I shot my mouth off about how I didn't think I'd play 4.0 again (nothing against it, just the improvements aren't what I liked about Modern)... so anyway I have 3.1, but in general, I think it'd be nice to have them easily available somewhere on here. I'd be curious to play the earlier versions!

Honestly, every mod should have archives of their old stuff, although I still prefer v4.

I mean, yeah, Spork could make sort of a "archive" of old versions of Modern Sonic if he wished to do so.

Much like Golden Shine made his own archive website called "Shining Archive". Here's the link to enter that website if you're interested.
