Whilst this mod is about 95% there, I'm going to be super busy till about Christmas and since it's been so long since I last posted something, I figured I'd post it now and iron out any problems later when I have time.
This mod was surprisingly inspired by the stage with a very different name, Seaside Hill. I used Splash Hill zone assets created by Okamikurainya over at spriter's resource and recoloured Pirate Cove tiles from Sonic Rush Adventure to create an alternative to Green Hill zone. (Not saying this lives up to GHZ by any means).
Music focuses heavily on the South Island theme, using work from both "Sound of Shadow" and "Jahn Davis" for acts 1 & 2 respectively.
Act 1 is 100% done, very happy with it, only changes I'd make would be purely aesthetic.
Act 2 is about 80-90% done. Level design nearer the end could do with some improvement, and sadly the file corrupted (I have back ups, only lost about 3 hours worth of work). Some parts are a little bare, and you may see a few, confusing tile placements, but this shouldn't affect gameplay.
This will likely not be my last level mod, but don't expect too much from me too soon, as I have some other projects in it's 'Shadow'.
