Updates

Balance and BugFix Update (v1.1) 6mo
  • Adjustment Changed several sections of the level for balance improvements
  • Improvement Tweaked spike and enemy placement to be more fair
  • BugFix Fixed a game crash after beating the boss
  • BugFix You can no longer clip into the blocks in the boss arena
  • Improvement Improved compatibility with character mods (sprites will no longer conflict and glitch out)
The biggest complaint I've seen with this mod is cheap spike and enemy placement, so I've gone back through the whole level and adjusted it to be more fair. I've also altered a few sections I wasn't happy with to improve the overall experience.

Also, for those of you who ignored my warning about mod conflicts, you'll be happy to know I've fixed most conflict issues, so character mods shouldn't cause problems anymore!

Act 1 available for download! 8mo Addition Not Dead 10mo Addition Progress Update 1y Addition2 Improvement Progress Update 2y Addition2 Improvement
Act 1 is finally finished! Download it now!

The caverns are alight with the glow of fireflies as you return to the Mystic Cave Zone. Explore new heights and deeper depths than ever before with tons of alternate pathways in a huge new level layout. Knuckles and Mighty have their own paths too! Swing from vines and run through loops to keep up your speed, but watch out for crushers and spiky hazards!

Act 2 is coming eventually. It will probably be released in 20 years at the rate I'm working.

WARNING: It is not recommended to have any other stage mods activated while playing this stage as it could cause conflicts with certain stage elements. I take no responsibility for glitches as a result of combining mods!

    I have mixed feelings toward this one. I cannot deny the absurd amount of work that went into it, including that sweet, sweet music and incredibly inventive use of Mania's gimmicks retextured to work like the ones in Mystic Cave. The boss was also extremely clever, and caught me off guard.

    However, I cannot forget how frustrated I was traveling through the zone, it seemed that every drop has spikes waiting for you, and every corner has the Crawlton badniks waiting for you and random retracting spikes waiting around an unassuming spring to poke your behind.

    The level design feels a little crowded and labyrinthine, like there's a new path to explore at every turn, but a lot of these are the ends of previous alternate pathways that have these spike traps waiting for you. Maybe it was my unorthodox method of approaching the mod, but at least this is how I feel. 

    Other than some level design polishing, this is a great mod. There was a ton of work put into it, and the graphics and sound are perfect. Keep up the great work.
