Are you sure that the coins in the casino level are not too flashy?

Man, this looks pretty neat. Those ghost blocks remind me of the ghost rope from DKC2. Honestly, looking at your project is inspiring. I'm looking forward to this one.

Update Time.

A very busy month for me, unfortunately, I didn't have much time left to work on the episode, I was busy playing a few games of my list, creating levels for competitions & collabs, personal life and yada yada.

The next month should not be too different, as the Christmas festivities will begin.

And here, some more gifs, showing the progress of the episode, remembering that some levels still are WIP:

I'm not sure if this should work this way...

I might not talk about the coins but about the level as a whole. I think it's a little too flashy in general.

I agree, the level was kinda uncomfortable to play.

This project is very good. Because in addition to the excellent level designer, the project is suitable for smbx 2.0 and uses its resources very well.

Secondly, I did a lot of custom gfxs for the episode and my custom gfx pack, as well fixed the hitbox of the koopa (it was inacuratte) and some lunalua, here some sprites:

Goomba House inspired in Mario Party 2 (Still need some fixes).


Image

SMB3 Grassland Tileset Alternate Patterns.


Image

SMB3 Yoshi's Island Castle.


Image

Kustom Kostumes idea for the koopa.


Image

Biddybuds.


Image

DKC Barrels.


Image

and to end, windmill.

Thirdly, I did a Progress Sheet for the episode, check out:
Image

and the episode now have a channel on the server of Eclipsed "Eclipsed's Moon Base", check out:
Image
*I don't really think that the episode deserve a discord server, so, I asked Eclipsed to make a channel about it in his server (a.k.a. Eclipsed's Moon Base).

Eclipsed and Eri7 are new beta-testers too, I guess.

-----------------------------

That's all for today, see you all on another update post.

Amazing work as always Airship! I'm mesmerized by the latest update. I love the clear pipe obstacles on that waterfall level, very creative, and the attention to detail with the burnt fence is something I can admire. However, by far the thing I love the most is the use of cannon barrels. I completely forgot those were a thing, I would've loved to make 'em and use 'em to my heart's content first.

Aesthetically speaking all of this is top notch, but I can't help to wonder about the disorganized way of progression on your episode. You began working on later levels before working on the very first world? I'm curious as to what led you to make that decision.

Keep up the good work! I can't wait to play this once it's done!

I can only speak for myself but I also do that... working on the levels which I want to work on, and then tossing them into a world depending on where they fit thematically and in terms of difficulty. It avoids situations where you're trying to slog to finish a level you don't really wanna work on just to get a world done. And by the time you get to such a potentially troubling level slot, you might have ideas for an even cooler level to put in that place!

And yeah I totally agree, this episode is looking rad as always. The burnt fences are fantastic like you said, and clearpipe chaos is always awesome, too. Now the clearpipe level waddle and i made for my episode will be the canonical copycat haha :D

Basically what Enjl said, with a little addition of what Miyamoto said in one interview:

"When we're doing an action game, we make the second level first. We begin making level 1 once everything else is completed."

In my opinion, the first level is too important to be worked first, is the level that will define if the episode is worth ou not to be played.

sorry my poor english.

This is beautiful. Definitely one of the most impressive SMBX episodes I've seen, as far as graphics go. And the gameplay just looks plain fun.

I'd say so. Ship only posts about progress here when they have a decent amount of work done; enough to be showcased. Of course, they still have their own stuff to take care of, but I'm certain they've been working on it.

Exactly this, and beyond that, I was ill with conjunctivitis and covid AND with the creation of my level for the cc1x, decreasing much my productive time on the episode.

but now, I will propably have more time to make the episode in a good pace.
