Gives a button to freely use the Drop Dash with alongside any shield (or lack thereof)
in Sonic 3 A.I.R. (And Sonic Mania), the Drop Dash could only be used if Sonic had no elemental shield active, where it would be replaced by the respective shield's ability.
this mod makes it so that the X button (i.e. the left face button, or the D key by default on a keyboard) is used as a dedicated button used for Drop Dashing, without activating any shield abilities or airdashes, so the Drop Dash can be used alongside any shield, and without airdashing as Hyper Sonic.
X / D can still be used for jumping and Spin Dashing and such just like the other two buttons (A and B), and the Drop Dash can still be performed with all three buttons, the difference is that the other two buttons only do so if you have no elemental shields as usual, but you can Drop Dash with X / D at any time.
additionally, if the Drop Dash is disabled through the in-game options menu, or if debug mode is enabled, the X button/D key goes back to being used for the shield abilities, so the implementation should be as seamless as possible.
i also find using X / D useful for making tails fly if you have the fire shield with this mod, so that's a nice little bonus.
