New Rules In Place

A Forum Thread for Sonic 3 A.I.R

Important

Hello modders. I have added a new set of rules you must follow on this page. They can now be seen on the right of the page below the managers. Make sure to look at your previous mods and decide if they go against the rules now set in place. Thank you for reading and have a good day!
Edit: To those who complained about the "low effort" rule, it is part of the GameBanana rules.

    If there is this many people who disagree with you on rule 1 then maybe you should reconsider. Heck there is actually a lot of people who just want recolors. So please remove the rule or make it a lot less strict.

    Hello, I am one of six Admins and one of eleven total Staff members of the Sonic 3 AIR Community Discord Server. We are in full support of these new rules, (Especially rule 1) as well as both Sonic 3 AIR Gamebanana page managers. (mcginnis03 and chaosweeb) It's safe to say the majority of our 1,827 server members are in support of this as well. Rule 1 is extremely important and vital to keeping the 3 AIR modding community and the 3 AIR community as a whole presented in a Professional, Non-Toxic manner. GameBanana is trying to maintain the platform and be-rid of toxicity here, but without basic quality control, communities like the Sonic Mania Modding Comunity and many others have been overrun with low quality, almost effortless seeming mods that ruin the integrity of the rest of the community. Having rule 1 in place helps prevent that happening here. 

    Are you someone who falls into violating rule 1? Well, the solution to getting out of that scenario is to clean up your act, and try to simply put a little more time into your mods to raise the overall quality of it, whether that requires an overhaul or some minor fixes, as well and maybe try to learn how to mod some more advanced things in the game. That might sound easier said than done to some, but to do this just requires some time to learn and improve. There is a large variety of other things you can mod in 3 AIR that become easy once you try, practice, and get the hang of. Don't let this rule discourage your complete ability to create a Sonic 3 AIR mod, if you can put a decent amount of quality into it then it will not violate this rule.

    >palette edits not allowed
    no, not anyone can make them and not anyone has the time to make small adjustments. eg: i am extremely picky about some palettes but gimp and other programs don't even want to work properly for me. there's already a mod count per day limit, so palette mods aren't gonna be spammed.

    I've decided to change rule 1 back as Gamebanana has it as a rule on the site anyways.

    Damn can some of you all calm down? Look, no one is saying everyone can make masterpiece mods, that's common sense, but we are not looking for masterpiece mods. What we are looking for is QUALITY mods from the community for other people to play. Palette mods CAN be quality, but it is super easy to make a palette mod, in fact it's probably the most easiest mod category out of all of them. There is also a difference between "effort" and "creative", which Airway1 already explained in a post. And look, there is an entire mod manual in the mod manager, and it is really easy to find to. Just read that to learn all of the basic mod techniques and go from there, it really isn't that hard.

  • I do respect the rules, but giving criticism helps improve the site. I'm a modder (Even though I don't mod Sonic 3 A.I.R I do it for another game). To me Rule 1 is giving noobie mod creators a slap on the wrist just because they want to do palette swaps. I used to do recolors, and for a lot of people, simple can be considered quality. Not to mention if there's a noobie to modding they can use recoloring as a stepping stone to make more quality mods in the future. I honestly love some recolor and palette swaps of stages, if done right it can be really awesome to play in. Just something to consider. You can totally criticize a mod, but removing it seems unjust. You can give criticism to a mod, as long as you're respectful.
