Poise - Balance at it's Finest (Big Rehaul)

A Work In Progress for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Progress Report

In Development - 30% finished

Updates

The "I need help" update.
  • Tweak Employment is a higher priority.
I know, I know.
I know what you're probably thinking right now.
"But wait, Charlie! You guys are a team, right? You guys do all help each other, right?"
...Well. That was the plan.
I'm pretty much the only person working on the mod. Kirb was a big help to music suggestions, and Meli was a big help to moveset advice. Levin helps with US Versions, and the rest help out whenever they can. Though, now development has gone a bit slower. And slower.... and slower. So slow my mind has gone numb, actually. I can't continue a mod where I'm doing... well, everything, so I need a bit more help. 

Additions to the team are basically what could speed development up, I think. As I'm completely out of ideas, I'm looking to employ:
+ Balancers
+ Artists
+ Stage Creators
+ Animators
+ Moveset Editors
+ Skin Creators
+ MSC Experts


I may be asking for a bit much, but for god's sake, if I want this done, I need a lotta help to make sure it's all quality. Take as much time as you need to make them quality, by the way.

Update #1: We have some content for you!
  • Overhaul The pack is going through MAJOR RE-HAUL!
  • Addition In addition, we have an Alpha build of the mod coming soon! Stay tuned!~
  • Addition Added characters for the Alpha build, and some skins to come with.
  • Addition Added Wario Land and Sky Room stages, one legal, the other not.
  • Removal Removed old screenshots.
  • Feature Suggestions are a higher priority!
  • Addition Partnered with the Ch4os Leg4cy for some mod advertisement.
Kept you waiting, huh?
We have a bundle of new fighters and stages to come to Poise Alpha, as well as many more characters to come. Keep in mind, all of these costumes (except standalone releases) are Work In Progress, so they have temporary UI for the time.

In addition, we're changing the global parameters for a faster experience, and we're adding new things to characters each and every week. We make sure every single detail matches what we see our favourite fighters being buffed. Don't expect weekly updates, but I promise you: You're in for a good treat if you decide to come to the Balanced realms.

Suggestions are open in full-force as well. The only rules for suggestions are: 1. No meme mods, and 2. If we say no, don't pester us to add it. You need a good reason to have it added. Finally, no. We're not adding mods from creators who don't want their stuff in packs.

That's all from this huge haul. Thanks to the Poise dev team, jam1garner, Kirbister,  Meli Satana, Tiniest, Xuman, TheOmniDoctor, Mizumi, and many, many more. Without you guys, I wouldn't of done this. My dream to make a Smash Bros. game of my own wouldn't of came true if it wasn't for you legends. I don't really know Jam or Mizumi, but Jam provided the canvas (or SmashExplorer), and Mizumi provided the paintbrush (those modding tutorials). The rest aided me on my journey to be who I am.

Thank you. All of you.
~ Charlie.

I'm not one for competition, buuut...

1. What IS Poise?

1.1. What we ARE:

Welcome to Poise, a balance pack that not only fixes problems that vanilla had, but also brings some new fun twists to natural gameplay, to make it fresh. This mod can grow more and more with your help. Suggestions and criticism is indeed allowed. I don’t get salty over a small nitpick or a big review. Just make sure it’s reasonable.

We of the Poise dev team aim to try to combine the series’s six titles (five not including 3DS) into a single game, using Smash Wii U as a base. We also want to make it faster than Smash 4, but not as fast-paced as Melee. All fighters will have faster speed and weight, some having considerably different weights to match their canon selves, some just small adjustments.

But what about the fun twists? Not only are we adjusting the fighters moves and tools, but also adding in brand new mechanics, and paying extra touches and extra details to the smallest of touches. Every fighter and stage could potentially have a secret with them, whether it is new playstyles or just silly touches to idles, taunts or even entire moves.

Speaking of moves, we plan to add new moves, animations and specials, based on their canon selves or past illiterations of them. In addition, we’re bringing new and exclusive costumes for the fighters. Some you can’t get on their own, and some you can. Same with stages.

1.2. What we are NOT:

We do not do the following:
- Steal assets from other mods.
- Steal our content. (Show it’s there but the creators don’t know about it)
- A mod compilation, thus this isn’t wifi safe unless your friends have the same mod.
- An unbalance pack. (Check Revenge’s page or the disclaimers for details.)
- A cash cow. (Aka, we’re not selling anything or doing it for money. We’re all different ages and do it for free.)
- A virus.
- A meme mod
- Mislead or give you false content.
- Doing this for competition. This pack is all for fun, and my view on balance. (See disclaimers for details.)

2. What do we do?

2.1. Our plans so far:

+ Improved hitboxes, damage, knockback, etc.
+ Brand new sound clips for some of the cast!
+ A musical rehaul!
+ A snazzy looking title screen by Meli Satana, and a nice CSS and SSS.

+ Clones decloned!
+ Low tier buffs!
+ Some top tier nerfs!
+ More fighters have wall-jumps!
+ Brand new mechanics!

+ All new and original stages, some competitive, revised , or casual.
+ Recolors redone!
+ New costumes, existing and exclusive!
+ Six planned new and improved fighters! (Once cloning slots exists.)

+ Directional airdodging (if I wanted to), advanced techniques.

2.3. How do you suggest new stuff?

We have a discord dedicated to suggesting new changes to the mod! (Which you can join here) Not all suggestions will be accepted, but if it gets denied, don't take it personally, just try, try again! Also, it's... kinda dead most of the time...so yeah.

3. Frequently Asked Questions:

3.1. Q: Will you release ____ seperately from Poise/can I use it for...

A: Short answer: Don't try.
Many of our assets may not work when combined with other packs. Although, skins are a small exception. If the creator wants exclusive skins from this mod released, they can. As for tournament builds, as long as you don't touch the fighters in any way, that's cool by me. Don't release it publicly if you are though, as that's stolen content.

3.2. Q: Will it use techniques from Melee and such?

A: We are planning to bring back some of the more useful mechanics, such as chaingrabs, wavedashing, and much more from the smash games. Although, since everyone is sped up and we're keeping rage, we're putting advanced techs to a minimum. Only the most popular deserve their chances.

3.3. Q: Do you plan to release an US/Unpacked version as well?

We indeed are! And we might do a JP build if somebody can do that!

3.4. Q: How can I assist with development?

All you got to do is DM me or Kirbister, and show us your modding talents. However, we don't accept everyone. You need to know a fair bit of skill with your talents in order to be part. Speaking of which...

3.5. Q: What kind of talents are you looking for now?

Well, we're aiming to hire:
+ Balancers
+ Artists
+ Stage Creators
+ Animators
+ Announcer
+ A few more moveset modders and skin creators.

I assure you, I am a nice person. I'm pretty understanding and patient when it comes to time. Take all the time you must.

Q: Does Poise have a social media of some sort?
Well, I only have this one.
Discord

3.6. Q: Any gameplay footage of this mod?

None so far. However, when we consider a fighter is complete, we can show off these guys to you in a 4 character free for all. Stay tuned.

3.7. Q: Are you going to cancel this mod out of nowhere again lololololololol

No. No. Quiet. Do not remind me. (See Disclaimers.)

4. Disclaimers and Things to Note:

Unlike my other mods, this one isn't breaking characters. I used assets from Revenge, yes. But do you realize how hard it is to edit 58 characters and make them playable/not crash the game? It's like spinning a wheel of fortune over 100 times. You get tired of it, and the problems only matter worse. Balance isn't easy, but it makes the game more fun and playable to do.

I don't want to make competition. No, I won't quit, I will continue updating this mod without any end until I either get bored or had enough of focusing on this pack. All characters will be updated and released whenever I want to, and whenever I can. And as for several mods better than ours, there's things to note.
1. We don't care. Your opinion is yours, and won't change our opinions.
2. We won't get in levels of Artful Phoenix,Melee HD and stuff like that, but that's fine by me. 
3. Do this too much in the discord and you might be banned.
4. Just because of my age, opinions and mental problems I may have doesn't mean I don't know balance. I know it's hard, but heck. if that's what I want to do, that's what I want to do.

More and more things will be updated as time passes, so stay tuned.

5. Mod Sponsors (Though not really.)

This is currently sponsored by Ch4os L: For Leg4cy! No, not because of the merge, because we agreed on it!...Right? Have you ever wondered what the Smash 4 cast would be like if they took a gallon of steroids? Or if Meta Knight and Marth went back to their roots? Here's the mod for you! It features multiple characters, all on the rank of S-Tier, (except Shulk for some reason) and probably aren't even tournament legal. Well, why not check it out if you're not gonna bother looking at mine! They even have a Discord! And I work there! :D

    This is looking great! Thank you for crediting me! I can give you the Yoshi Flutter Jump script since im assuming only for offline use or online if the person has the mod (Due to the flutter jump being a "moveset edit")

    I'm looking forward this! For suggestions :
    1 - You should add the Melee spacies as, well, sm4sh Species alts (obviously) and put brawl voices over sm4sh ones (unless that garbage voice is cooler than brawl's)
    2 -  Do Yoshi's Island Legalized platforms still spin when hit? It could be a nice touch
    3 - Pacman's grab should either not be a tether or be as fast as Link's
    4 - Fun twists? Cool! Make Doc's pills give the Flower effect and make Falco's shine spike... I think this one went too far, didn't it?
    This is surely the first modpack I'll play, since I was too lazy to download modpacks w/ my crap computer, but not anymore!
