Topic: Level Layout ideas wanted!

So yeah , I have a lot of ideas for Level layouts. But, I'm also on the look out for ideas which I can expand upon! If anyone is interested in sharing any level layout ideas that they've had for their "2D" tile based fangames or just ideas in general. Please share them here!
Keep in mind that AXSX is meant to play and feel similar to the 2D classics but in 3D, so 2D layouts are perfect, I can take the 2D layouts and or parts of them that are interesting and add 3D gameplay elements to them.
Anyone interested just post em here! I'll make a new credits section dedicated to Level layout concept artists. Also I probably wont keep any visuals from the layouts, so for example if you have a jungle layout it may end up being used in a completely new environment like Death EGG for example.
Remember, I'm looking for fun and not visuals!

Re: Level Layout ideas wanted!

I had some ideas for the Jade Gully test level if it counts.

I also had an idea for some objects in Metal Blade, and some scenery.

Oh.
Then again, I don't know how to make textures as good as Senn or Joey can, so it'll save you a lot of work.

They're more "gameplay" than actual layouts. I'll see what I can do!

Can you read it? If not I'll update it for front and back.

(don't mind the big words on the bottom saying "ROO DOC IS SEPER", it's supposed to say "Rings of Order doc is seperate" since this is for a fangame)

Re: Level Layout ideas wanted!

Just a little curious, are you planning on taking any layouts from the VHS demo footage? Crystal forest has a lot of footage, will you be swapping the level design for the stage?

Re: Level Layout ideas wanted!

I've already got all of the stages from the VHS tape footage rebuilt except the purple colored stage named New Worlds.

Re: Level Layout ideas wanted!

That's way past cool, glad to hear. I only recently came across the project so I'm still kind of figuring out everything going on in it, so excuse my noob.

Re: Level Layout ideas wanted!

So I actually had a question as well, and this relates to level layouts. In the VHS demo, there isn't any rolling to rotate the world, and I'm a little curious if you are incorporating that along with the gameplay from the VHS demo? It seems like the VHS demo is just 3d with the radical slopes that go up and down and all around, but things like V40 and V37 have the rotation of the stages.

Re: Level Layout ideas wanted!

Wait? You can play the game in VHS? It possible?

Re: Level Layout ideas wanted!

I was referring to the stages from the VHS PC Demo, SMBX2011. To my knowledge it's the stages; Red Sands, Jade gully, Crystal frost, New worlds (not yet completed as stated above),  new paths, and possibly the Metal Sonic boss. There might be more, but those are all the stages I recall being shown in any demos. It's safe to say that most of these levels, besides possibly Crystal frost which has around 4 minutes of footage, will have some parts shown in the videos but a lot of the gaps will be filled in by the AXSX team. That's just my guess though.

Re: Level Layout ideas wanted!

Maybe you can send Sonic Xtreme PC Demo VHS Rip for me, i want to watch that.
