Characters Sprites/Graphics

What you see is what you get. Just a guy that loves adventure.

"Wait, Neo Sonic? Who and/or what's that?"

Character Trailer (Youtube)

Neo Sonic is a character that lifts several different elements and mechanics from various Sonic games; although his look is lifted straight from the Adventure/Advance/Modern era to help differentiate him from the both vanilla and add-on iterations of Classic Sonic.


He's heavier, and has incredibly poor traction in comparison to standard SRB2 Sonic, but he more than makes up for it in speed alone.


As of V2, he includes a few additional palettes that reference his appearance/colors in other games, alongside a few bonus ones I've thrown in just for fun.


ABILITIES & OVERVIEW:
Spoiler:
Boost Mode


Lifted straight from Sonic Advance 2, boost mode will allow Neo Sonic to break the speed cap and begin running faster than standard Sonic ever could alone. In this state, Neo Sonic can destroy spikes, and he also gains a 75% jump boost from maintaining speed above the Boost Mode threshold.
Homing Thok

Essentially a momentum-friendly take on the homing attack from the 3d titles. Neo Sonic locks on to the nearest target and bounces off when he lands -- you can even hold down jump button to give yourself an added vertical boost at the cost of less speed.
Drop Dash [NEW!]

If you've played Sonic Mania, this ability needs no introduction.

Hold spin while jumping to charge an instantaneous spindash. The dash itself scales with your speed, so it can be used to extend your horizontal momentum, but also to transfer that into added vertical momentum on slopes and half-pipes.


Keep in mind that this is takes priority over shield abilities, but shield abilities can still be activated by pressing jump and spin at the same time.


However, if you hold jump while charging a drop dash with certain shields...

...their effects will stack! Try out every shield with the drop dash to perform all kinds of neat tricks.


OTHER MISC GAMEPLAY TIPS:
  • Neo Sonic is able to regain control out of a mid-air spin at any time by pressing jump again. Use this to correct your trajectory if you roll off a cliff.
  • Holding jump while launching into a spring will keep you in the spin state, allowing you to chain homing attacks as much as you want.





CURRENT BUGS/ISSUES:
Spoiler:

  • Homing Thok doesn't cooperate well with shielded Egg Guards and Fake Sea Eggs. As of right now I'm trying to fix this, but for now the timer to reset your state afterwards should work as a failsafe and allow you to break free.

CHANGELOG:

Spoiler:



[V2 Changelog]
  • NEW ABILITY: Drop Dash

Charge spin mid-air to perform an instantaneous spindash.

  • OTHER GAMEPLAY CHANGES:
    • Neo Sonic can now cancel the control lock when spinning off of a cliff or in the air by pressing jump again.
    • Homing attack animation cooldown has been drastically reduced.
    • Neo Sonic can now properly stand on spikes and get hurt now. Oops.
  • VISUAL CHANGES:
    • The strong homing attack, dashmode buildup, and spinning have all been given fancy new effects/sprites to designate when they're active.
    • Added new skincolors:
      • Adventurous
      • Advanced
      • Petit
      • Twilight
      • Laser
      • Cosmic
[V1.14 hotfix notes]
  • Fixed collision behavior for objects containing the MF_SOLID flag.
[V1.13 hotfix notes]
  • Falling animation state improvements/fixes, RVZ Rollout rock state fix.
[V1.12 hotfix notes]
  • Added the proper VCL prefix.
  • Removed a conflicting function name that would break the thok if certain characters were loaded in.
[V1.11 patch notes]
  • Homing Thok tweaks
    • Now has two strengths! Holding down the button as you land a homing thok results in a stronger bounce, at the cost of less speed.
    • Checks now rely on a more netplay-safe variable rather than clientside variables (oops I wasn't aware of this, this is what was probably causing the syncbombs)
    • Improved overall reliability/accuracy
  • Animation/Spritework tweaks
    • Added a set of diagonal running frames to help improve visual feedback to indicate the direction the player is moving.
    • Tilt running frames have been repurposed and only show if the player is moving slightly to the right/left.
    • Reduced the stiffness of the jump/homing attack by adding additional states to help improve overall animation flow.
    • Improved the look of the Boostmode particle, making it visible from multiple angles.

New to SRB2 mods and, until then, this is the best I've found. I like it more than normal Sonic from the original game.

I don't like how dead this thread is. It's making me sick.
I wonder where Chengi is. I'm hoping this character will be complete soon.

don't be worried, Chengi is probably working on the super form and to fix some sprites
this stuff takes a lot of days to do and to implement

Well, that does give me a nice feeling of relief, considering this thread has been gone for 5 months straight.

I get you're excited for the full-featured finished thing, but Chengi really doesn't owe you or anyone else their work. Stuff takes time and energy to make, and you don't know how much time or energy anyone has to dedicate to projects like this, especially with the global pandemic right now. How much of yourself you can direct into work on this scale, an entire SRB2 character with new artwork and custom Lua coding, can change radically in the space of a couple months. Be more considerate when you say stuff like "I don't like how dead this thread is. It's making me sick."

I don't think anything else needs told besides what Crappy Blue told you, so it'd be for the best if you acted more respectful and appreciative of people's work. Your current behavior is unacceptable. Be patient and avoid complaining about the thread's inactivity any longer.

I just tried the new version and to be honest, there isn't much to say other than the new color choices are cool (mainly cosmic). Because the drop dash doesn't seem useful or fun to use, if it were to take notes from how Pointy Sonic handles the drop dash I would've enjoyed this version way more. But that's just my thoughts.
