This is basically my attempt at improving Classic Sonic's gameplay. Truth be told I actually don't despise his gameplay in forces like many other people do. The levels can honestly be pretty fun but that's all ruined by a severe lack of polish and bad physics. This mod aims to improve his overall gameplay by tweaking his physics, removing his speed cap, improving the graphics, and various other tweaks and fixes.
Tweaks / Changes
Sonic's jump feels a lot less heavy and easier to control.
Sonic's speed cap is removed when going down slopes.
Sonic controls more like the classic games.
Water phyiscs are more accurate to the classic games.
The Spindash / Dropdash are more accurate to the classics / mania.
Rolling is much more effective and feels more like the classic games.
Sonic's appearance improved to match is renders more closely.
Intrusive dash panels removed.
Intrusive springs removed.
The death signs from Generations are now present.
The removal of auto scrolling from Iron Fortress.
Super Sonic is much faster than he normally is.
S ranks are harder to get.
Various other improvements.
Play As Classic Sonic In 3D
Better controls akin to "Sonic Adventure".
Ideal for stage mods that use "Sonic Adventure" style gameplay.
Also try KnuxFan24's "Westopolis" mod for Classic Sonic in 3D.
This isn't compatible with other physics mods for the most part but Cornflakerush's Modern Sonic Physics mod is optionally included in the "+ Modern Tweaks" downloads. (the version included is a bit more updated than his current one as he hasn't gotten around to updating it yet.)
This mod isn't compatible with skin changes either but that only applies to skins that change Classic Sonic specifically. If you want to make your Classic Sonic skin compatible then take the "sonic_classic.rfl" from this mod and use it in your mod. Just be sure you link back to this mod with credit.
Custom levels are compatible but they should be
loaded under this mod within the mod loader menu. This will prioritize
the level mod over the improvement mod. Anything else should be above
this mod so it has priority.
So, I bought Forces hoping to use this mod in all its glory (ok not really but I had it in mind), but, I'm a bit conflicted on something I noticed, but I swear I don't know if it is my imagination playing mind games on me.
Does Sonic gain speed after jumping? If I'm bunny hopping with CS I feel like I keep getting faster and faster. But again I'm not sure if this is my mind playing tricks on me.
Everything else feels much better. I specially like the removal of all the intrusive dash panels and springs. It turly makes the game more enjoyable.
1. Classic's eyes have always been flipped upside down in game, could you fix that please...Cheers!
2. This has always bugged me, but Classic's walk and run animations don't start up smoothly as they did in Generations, and his jump animation has a split second of him standing before loading the animation... If you could fix this, that would be lovely
