Mecha Sonic
Version: Version 1.2, by CANINE CANINE is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2020

Version: SRB2 Rating: (6 votes - 3.00 average)
Released: 03-03-2020 Last Update: Never Favourites: 5
Characters SOCs Scripts Re-Useable Content Sprites/Graphics

After hearing of the chaos emeralds, Mecha Sonic reboots and trails Sonic and his gang through Greenflower Zone in pursuit of the emeralds.



Abilities:
Spoiler:
- Ability 1 - Mecha Sonic has a homing-thok. Lock on and destroy those badniks!

- Ability 2 - Mecha Sonic is a slow-starter. Use his peelout to gain a running start!

Super Abilities:
Spoiler:
- Ability 1 - He can fire Energy Balls from his chest! Jump, aim, fire.

- Ability 2 - When dashing, Mecha Sonic's jet-powered shoes will leave a trail of flames that can damage badniks in his wake.

Changelog:
Spoiler:
v1.2:
- Fixed more broken offsets (once and for all!)
- Dash Trails are now exclusive to super mode.
- Energy Ball is now exclusive to super mode.
- Acceleration lowered to fit Mecha's heavy body. Use the peelout ability to gain a running start.
- Float replaced with a homing-thok. (I wanted to set him apart from Metal Sonic in more ways than one.)
v1.1:
- Fixed broken offsets
- Fixed super music loop.
- Changed Mecha's size (Mecha was too big for Egg Rock Zone Act 1 treadmills)
- Removed Dash Trails and Energy Bomb in Match mode
- Added Metal Sonic Battle Mode abilities (kept old energy ball ability exclusively for platformer mode, and excluded battle mode ability in platformer mode)
- Made shields actually FIT Mecha
- Removed followitem, didn't look right. (Revised Sprites to fit no followitem in progress!)
- Still some bugs, but major bugs have been ironed out.

Finally, I can play this character. I wonder if in the future all doppelgangers are back on this game.

cool Lua and all, tho the laser beam doesn't automatically target stuff which is annoying.

but oh man these sprites just don't make up for it, they are pretty inconsistent and doesn't seem they had too much care or thought put into them enough, its a fine mod overall but it leaves room for improvement.

Thanks for the feedback! Im a beginner at drawing so there not going to be that good at first. I'll keep what you said in mind to improve the sprites in the future!

I recommend taking out the Big Arm and Doomsday MP3s and using the VGZs from here and here instead. They will loop properly and will reduce the filesize of the character down to something sane. Big Arms should probably be removed completely though, it will always end before it gets to the good part and it will always be abrupt.

good character, I must say that it is something unexpected, the only problem is the sprites... (hey, I recommend you to use the sprites that are in boss mayhem of 2.1)

I suggest also putting out a version without music changing as well. Would be nicer for co-op then, since it'd otherwise make all characters' supers doomsday zone.

That's... Not how that works. His custom super music only affects mecha sonic.

...In my defense I did not have time to test out the other characters with this loaded, and assumed otherwise as the only other super-music-effecting wad on the board from what I recall was universal. My bad.

I like the gameplay, but i have a few suggestions
1. Make his hover keep him in spinball form. it would be more accurate to S3K, along with helping it be more distinct from metal's
2. Remove the energy ball. It's practically useless and doesn't really feel like it has a place here. He couldn't use it outside of super form in S3K anyways, so maybe keep it for super form and give it auto-target
3. Lower his acceleration. The peelout is super fun and powerful, and I think he should rely on it more. I think he really doesn't need to be able to get fast as easily as he does. Heavier momentum would do wonders for both making him like mecha sonic and balancing.
We have the basis for what could become a great character. I think these changes would suit him well.

Why is the fire while moving period a thing? Seems kinda odd to me imo.
I honestly just dislike the fire trail.
