Now that SRB2 the Past is out of the way, I want to show something else I'm working on. View attachment 83143
This is the Tikal Emerald hint orb system. Based on what was there in Sonic adventure, Tikal will point you in the direction of the closest emerald shard. It's up to you to find your way to the shard though.
This is the hint system that's going to appear in the update to Chaos Coave, once I have new replacement sprites. This hint system will also be made aviable to all who wish to use it too.
Dug up an old design document from back when Project Robotower was still being called Sonic Extreme.

Plans since this document have changed a little, but over all they're still being adhered to. Evidence to this can actually be seen in Dimension Glaber with Emerald Lake act 1, Emerald Cove which was the old Emerald Lake act 2, Icicle Warehouse act 1, a Quartz Caverns Circuit map, and a Flood Forest CTF map.
Minvs the Prototype was also a prototye for the boss "Driller Egg" (may get renamed to "Egg Driller"). Bosses with test next to them were ones I had yet to even program in the old TGF version of the project, and were only ideas at the time.
