Multiplayer Levels SOCs Scripts Sprites/Graphics

This mod ports and touches up every vanilla Circuit mode map from 1.09.4 to 2.0! It also contains community maps, thanks to their cooperation.

I hope to see a big effort in the future to make this mode more interesting because I see potential in increasing the interaction between other players. But even then, I really love playing this mode even in it's current state.

Included with this pack built-in, is Fickleheart's Circuit Redux script and will spruce things up with the HUD, knowing where you and other players are, and re-spawning in a farther place than the checkpoint if you die. The maps were designed specifically with this pack in mind, so it has the needed waypoints to work with it.

Anyway, I am going to go into detail with what I did to every map and what I've done to make them better than their original revision.

This zone has a little opening for Tails and Knuckles players to go over that Sonic likely can't, giving them a small advantage. There's also some platforms that rise out of the sand to hinder the average Metal player.

The majority of the map has been edited, and I have added new routes and secrets that people can show off with. It might not be my favorite thematically, but it is definitely the best map in the pack and there's more changes than I would be willing to state in a small paragraph.

This has gotten mostly minor touch-ups but it's now raining (a reason to actually have the mud there) and part of the road is now decayed...

Replaced that patch of acid with some more friendly water, and put a monitor down there. One of the slopes I placed can give you an advantage if you're strategic.

There's a little safety spring somewhere and some slopes, this map is great on it's own and doesn't really need anything done to the layout.

A NiGHTS track! Somehow, I made it a lot less of an eyesore.


Now, here's the list of the included community-made tracks. I hope this list expands in the future...

Exclusive to this pack, by me. Includes a modified version of Nightmare Buzz designed to be the gimmick of the track. He performs his pinch phase (vile attack) every 10 seconds, then says a random taunt. Run for cover!


OLDC Maps! I have got permission to use these old maps in hopes that the people of today will enjoy them.

Changed lava textures and made colormaps less intense



Spoiler: Changelogs

Spoiler: v1.1
  • I have raised the open area at the end of Quicksand Ruins and have made some rising platforms to deter Metal players.
  • The harmful water in Tainted Gorge and Toxic Citadel is now green.
  • In Fertile Canyon, I have made the mud goop and have removed the harmful properties from it. I have also made the sloped FOF more forgiving.
  • The water in Frozen Night isn't harmful anymore.
  • I have removed the skybox animals in Heaven Pass, but placed some on the ground. The last checkpoint is also moved ahead to give Fang and possibly others an advantage.
  • Slumber Circuit has gotten a revamp in the texture department to make it look less ugly.

Spoiler: v1.1.1

  • Fixed minor sector issues in Heaven Pass

Spoiler: v1.2

  • Tainted Gorge has a few visual tweaks, and there are now vertex slopes.
  • Frozen Night now uses different textures.
  • Fixed an issue in Metallic Hall where in some spots if you die, you will infinitely re-spawn in between the conveyor FOF and the ground, resulting in an infinite loop of death. But because of this, a new issue has popped up where players can go under the FOFs.
  • Heaven pass has some texture alignments and a vertex slope.
  • I have fixed the dreaded issue of giant invisible bustable blocks showing up in Slumber Circuit, which has caused extreme lag and usually crashes on lower end systems.

It can go into releases, but there's more than one instance in both MEtalic Hall and Slumber Circuit where the Wrong Way message appears even when going through it correctly. Though, I can't really say we have anything against this kind of fault that would prevent release, so it can go into Releases for now. Also, why does Heaven Pass have giant animals in the skybox?

It's great to be able to experience the Circuit maps again, however I feel after playing them enough times that some need a few minor or major adjustments.

In general, these maps highly favor Sonic and Metal Sonic for the high speeds they can achieve and the general designs of the courses themselves. I know it's a product of the time but maybe if some route alterations and more routes that only the Tails/Knuckles/Amy/Fang racers can take optimally were introduced like in some of the 2.0 Circuit maps to keep up with the hedgehog racers, it'd help them struggle less.

Anyways onto the maps themselves, Apart from the general comments above, there's a few specific elements from individual maps that I think could be looked into.


This floating angled platform in Fertile Canyon is incredibly inconsistent. Either you undershoot the platform and thud into the edge of the platform, either correcting yourself to land successfully on the platform or mistakenly land back down on the ground (possibly into the mud) and lose time, or you completely overshoot it.


Fang can just skip this corner of Heaven Pass and go right onto the skipping stones, only to get buzzed when he crosses the finish line. A map with two useful Fang-cuts (that Tails and Knuckles can also take) has one invalidated because you need to checkpoint on the corner before reaching the finish line.


Speaking of Fang, he and the Tails and Knuckles-runners can get up on the top here and run over the ledges to save a bit of time, it doesn't save a lot since you still need to go in the tunnel to hit the track's only checkpoint, but maybe this could be the foundation of some shortcut only they and Amy with her hammer can take?

(no GIF since it would just be a character looping through the finish banner)
Slumber Circuit takes way too long to be a 4-lapper. Maybe if it was hard-coded to be 2 or 3 laps instead of four it would be much more tolerable and not a boring four-minute slog through texture soup. The NiGHTS-focused objects not respawning over time (except for the bumpers) makes it easy for frontrunners to keep their drill filled and speed further ahead of other racers.

But yeah otherwise those are my thoughts. I hope you decide to continue working with these cause I see lots of potential in re-introducing a long-lost gamemode to SRB2, and possibly add remakes/ports of the 2.0.x Circuit maps as well

Quicksand Ruins is my least favourite level in this pack. Metal Sonic can complete four laps of this map in about 40 seconds. I can already envision everyone in the server switching to Metal during the countdown.


Tainted Gorge had a similar issue; Metal Sonic can float over the entire thing. Other than that, this was a pretty decent level, but it could do with the terrain style being hanged to match Techno Hill Zone, and maybe tthe goop colour being changed to green to indicate that it hurts you.

Fertile Canyon felt similar to Tainted Gorge, they were both really tightly packed. I would appreciate it if there was some indication that the black water hurts you. The sloped FOF near the end should be made steeper as well, so it's harder to miss.


I enjoyed Toxic Citadel because it was actually hard to boost through the entire thing. Only criticism I have is that the water should be green like in Black Core Zone Act 3 to indicate that it hurts you.


I liked Metallic Hall as well, the conveyor belts were very fun. Don't have much critisicm for this one, other than that the random grass patches look a bit weird.


I expected to be able to cheese Heaven Pass by floating over the entire thing, but Circuit Redux didn't count my laps unless i was on the ground, so it's cool I guess? The animals in the skybox do look weird though. I would move them to the actual level instead of the skybox.


The hedgehog and his metallic doppelganger have a field day in Sonic Circuit, which is to be expected due to the zone's name. I guess they could have a Stardust Speedway rematch here?


Slumber Circuit must have been easy to balance, lol. I feel like it lasts too long. 2 or 3 laps would be much better. The textures are a bit of an eyesore, maybe you could mix in some "mainframe" textures to break up the emerald textures? Also, some of the parts remind me of Cavern Fortress.


TL;DR: Metal Sonic sucks, it's a shame you have to design around him.
Oh, I nearly forgot, the levels show up in the Singleplayer level select.

Thank you all for the criticism, it's motivating me to make a little update adjusting to these suggested changes that I feel are necessary. I was also already planning to do the 2.0 Circuit maps eventually, and when I do I will definitely rename the pack for V2 of this mod.


And to indirectly answer some questions because I'm too lazy to quote, there's some "wrong way" bugs because parts of the track overlap each other vertically later on and as far as I can tell, it's not something I can fix with just moving waypoints or making more of them. And yes, I can tell that the good parts of Slumber Circuit were reused in Cavern Fortress, it makes me appreciate both levels more.

I have pushed through and made an update the same day!! I will list the changes in this comment;
  • I have raised the open area at the end of Quicksand Ruins and have made some rising platforms to deter Metal players.
  • The harmful water in Tainted Gorge and Toxic Citadel is now green.
  • In Fertile Canyon, I have made the mud goop and have removed the harmful properties from it. I have also made the sloped FOF more forgiving.
  • The water in Frozen Night isn't harmful anymore.
  • Metallic Hall is unchanged.
  • I have removed the skybox animals in Heaven Pass, but placed some on the ground. The last checkpoint is also moved ahead to give Fang and possibly others an advantage.
  • Sonic Circuit is unchanged, it is still funny and quirky.
  • Slumber Circuit has gotten a revamp in the texture department to make it look less ugly. Sadly, it still has an issue with unintended crumbling platforms that lag the game when touched. If anyone is willing to find out what causes this for me, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all for your time helping develop this with your own thoughts and experiences...

Oops! Fixed some issues related to Heaven Pass Zone that I noticed after hosting a server with it.

ooo...kay. well, i appreciate the lengths you went towards to implement Circuit Redux and attempted improvements at the map design in general, but i have to question why you decided to use Final Demo maps instead of 2.0. pretty much all of these maps show their age by now and it ain't pretty.

that said, good work regardless.

When I originally started, I didn't even know that 2.0 had different stages, let alone any at all. As I said, I will update it in the future with more maps.

Planning on adding a nospin route on Sluggish Shrine so that Amy and Fang aren't entirely screwed over, and maybe a few Knuckles shortcuts too.

If I finish more skyboxes quick enough we could emulate 2.1's patch cycle with a day one patch /s

Unless I'm missing it, there doesn't appear to be a download link?
