Version 3.0.0 - Cloud Scrolling & Fixes 2mo Addition Refactor Update 2.0.0 - Fixes Update 2mo Tweak Amendment

No more weirdly static buildings... Or clouds!

You ever thought the parallax in CPZ1 was too bland? The way all the buildings were in 1 layer, with no depth whatsoever? Well, I sure did. And for the longest time, I've wanted to change the parallax myself, but never could... Until now.

This mod does exactly what it says, it separates the 1 layer background into 3 layers, giving it far more depth. Enjoy!

    Found one. The clouds clip through this specific building tile.

    That farthest background layer is way better than mine! Compared to yours, mine looks desolate and empty and awkwardly tiled.

    Aw, you beat me to it! I made a version of the CPZ1 parallax a couple weeks ago that almost perfectly replicates the one seen in the Sonic 2 Mania SHC2021 demo, with its layer speeds (not the lowest one), moving clouds and all. Funny enough, I did actually get the chemicals below the green buildings to animate, but also have no idea how I did this! Sorry!

    NOTE: The "NEXT" tiles on the tile sheet have been redrawn by me, so you should probably use the original ones if you want it as close to the original game as possible.
