Topic: Thread for my upcoming level set.

    So, I finally decided that I want to make a thread to advertise my coming level set. Whether I get it finished within the month or not is beside the point.
    I will not give everything away, but for a while each environment seemed to give its own connotation of some level theme, and so I tried to keep up with those themes in my levels:

  • Levels 01-04 and bonus I use the hills environment. They are generally more calm levels.

  • Levels 05-08 and bonus II use the ocean environment. The main theme here is moving and falling platforms.

  • Levels 09-12 and bonus III use the city. In fact, 09-12 were my first four levels I ever made, although I did go back and polish them a little bit. The theme here is speed, although I only used one type of curve. Bonus III, on the other hand, is much more polished since I made it much later on.

  • Levels 13-16 and bonus IV use the space environment. You'll see what theme I chose... (partly because I find it difficult to describe).

  • Levels 17-20 use the alien environment. 17-19 are all mazes in some form or another, and 20 is a huge level with a maze as one of the challenges.

Checklist
(X) Back up the levels

(  ) Share the levels!

Questions
1. ITI wrote something about zipping the mtrl folder but I still fail to understand it.
2. When I do finally release the set, should I include the .map files or just send the .sol files in the zip?

The only other unfinished level, V, will come after I do all the others. I have a reason for this.

I highly recommend packing the map files as well as the sol files.

look in the .zip file "iti_mspaint_nbtextures_zipped9_5_18_mod9_23_18.zip" in thread. when you open the zip you see a folder "textures". inside is folder "mtrl". inside this folder is the texture files. if you place this .zip file in the nb 1.6.0 data folder, nb will detect the textures without you having to extract anything from the .zip file.

ps looking forward to your lvls smile たのしみ

Re: Thread for my upcoming level set.

    Update: With some tricks (including writing code and making the map a grid), level 18 is far less daunting and will be finished soon. That plus level 20 also being very near being done means this set is within measurable distance of completion.

Re: Thread for my upcoming level set.

    I finished level 18 (a while ago) and almost finished 20... but then I decided that one of 20's challenges is badly made, and I am replacing it with something else. Level V should be easy except I keep forgetting to work on it!
