Creative Worlds Level Pack. - Creative concepts on a large scale

Last year, I unveiled my first full zone known as Lawn World. Now I am back with what I hope will become a sizable level pack not only with full zones, but with a lot of custom assets as well. This pack is full of custom decorations and enemies using the engine's 16-directional sprite feature, which were created with the help of 3D software.

As of version 0.1, the pack contains
-A somewhat enhanced version of Lawn World
-Broadside Cliffs Act1
-Skyward garden Act 1
-Lawn Field (the custom...

0.1.2 quick fixes

Sorry for updating so quickly, there was a SOC line I forgot to roll back when removing the beginning of BCZ2 (because of those palette issues).

LWZ2 - Fixed a small HOM
BCZ1 - First stab at splitting sectors and having more sane ceiling heights (for the purpose of optimization and reducing software glitches). I clearly overestimated the OpenGL adoption rate in this community, so a lot of new development will be done in the software engine.

Ace Dragon updated Creative Worlds Level Pack. with a new update entry:

Version 0.1.3

BCZ1 - Some sectors were manipulated and others split, the result is the node topology is far better in spots and several sections do not glitch as hard. Software is still far from perfect for this zone, so for the best experience keep using OpenGL.
- Crossed paper sprites now replace some of the 3D pines, the really big pines are still 3D due to the sprite size being too big for SLADE to handle well.
- A slight transition improvement from the steep cliff at the end of the level to the...

Version 0.1.4

Another update. This time there are more than just quick fixes.

LWZ1 - Redid the Amy and Fang route, it now continues under Sonic's route into its own area (as opposed to the short and cramped path it was earlier). It lets out by the house at the end.
- Opened one area near the start, it is inaccessible though.
- One texture went missing in a previous change, it is added back.
BCZ1 - Now safe to play in software, some geometry changes were done that eradicates the massive glitching entirely...

Addendum 1; To all who have left reviews on my addons & more page. Thank you for the feedback, here are some responses to notable critiques.

  1. --The LWZ3 boss; The original idea was to make a slightly harder version of the GFZ3 boss, but I do admit that even I got frustrated when I tested the level. My ability to mod with Lua was a bit more limited back then, so yes the boss will have to be reworked and the lasers likely ditched altogether.
  2. --The overly hidden upper path on BCZ1; This was based on the idea that the upper path would be more of a reward path (with extra lives and the like) than a full-on alternate route, though it turned out it became far more of the latter than the former. As a result I may have to remove the lake entirely here or at least dramatically lower the water level (so the entrance is a lot more clear to those coming down from the section before).
  3. --Directioning and the like; I like open spaces, but now that I think about there could be ways to improve the visibility of the space that denotes the way forward for starters. Though now that I have dealt with the core integrity issues, it is time to slow down the releases and focus on bigger updates that add new content while reworking others. That is not because I don't want to bring the latest changes to your hands quickly, but because I don't want to risk doing 'release spam' if that is seen as a thing here.

Otherwise, Broadside Cliffs Acts 2 and 3 will be in the next version. I have barely started on those acts so it may be a while.

My game crashes with the attached error message upon attempting to load Lawn Field (the custom NiGHTS special stage), regardless of how I access it.

When he removed the colormaps in 0.1.1 he forgot to change the level header of Lawn Field to not use any colormap, because of this, the game is trying to load a colormap that does not exist.

This can be fixed with a simple SOC file that just redefines the Lawn Field level header. Here's one I put together real quick.


EDIT: This has been fixed in 0.1.5. This soc file is no longer necessary.

Version 0.1.5; Quick fixes and a few more things

Small Fix - Fixed SOC code for Lawn Field

BCZ1 changes.
- A few excessive trees that block the player were removed
- Better directioning in a couple of key areas (through rings, texturing, and some small geometry changes)
- The lake hiding the start of the upper path was largely drained, but other changes were also done to the area.
