Restore original zone order?

Is there currently a way to restore the originally planned zone order (CNZ to FBZ to ICZ) in this version of Sonic 3 (In a similar manner to Sonic 3 complete)? I might be in the minority on this, but I've always preferred to play the game this way thematically, as it removes the somewhat jarring transition from Carnival Night to Ice Cap, and makes it feel more consistent.

I asked the developer of the mod if this was a feature that would be planned for a future update, but sadly he confirmed it was not. So, I figured I'd turn to the modding community and ask if there are any current mods, potential future plans, or just possibilities in general of bringing this slightly-altered version of the game to this great mod.

    Right now, the only way to do this would be with raw data modding, so if someone wanted to do it it's (AFAIK) theoretically possible. Eukaryot also said that he's working on expanding modding support so that it'd be possible to do rom hack level stuff with AIR, so if it won't happen anytime soon there's a decent chance it'll happen then.

    Also, if i recall correctly Eukaryot also said that Competition mode wouldn't be added in either, so there's hope it could become an official feature.

    Either way, it should happen eventually.

    Currently its not possible, we'd have to hack the rom itself and make a version of Sonic 3 AIR that was compatible with said ROM.
