Royalty-free Ideas!

Postby Enjl » Fri May 10, 2019 10:59 am

Interested in making a level for this but starving for ideas? Thinking of adding some little spark to whatever it is you're doing? Got some ideas but not enough to turn them into a level? Tadaah! Here's the spot.

Sometimes you just really gotta get some of that chlorophyll since you don't have enough in designing, or you wanna share some with someone else, so post pics of neat things you found here which you aren't planning on including in any of your own levels. Other people can comment on the ideas and use them if they were what they were looking for! The best timeline would be if someone could open up this thread and scroll through and just find inspiration en masse.

Rules:
1. Don't feel pressured about the novelty of your idea. It can be incredibly simple, it can be incredibly complex, doesn't matter!
2. Make sure people can tell how to replicate it. A gif is usually enough, but if you use odd NPC settings you might wanna add a paragraph.
3. Feel free to brainstorm with others to develop ideas you see even further! If you see an idea here and have some ideas for how to make it even BETTER but don't wanna make a level around it, post the ideas anyway, so maybe someone else will feel even more inspired to pick it up.

I'll start.

I really like the second gif in Thwomps and Layers where the Thwomp drops when you make the donut fall and starts moving towards the pipe to block it.

Which is all about thwomps.

NOTE: Feeding powerups to a Baby Yoshi will make them instantly grow, contrary to regular NPCs. Powerups also cancel any eating effects the Baby Yoshi may have (e.g. Purple Baby Yoshi won't cause an earthquake when eating a powerup).
NOTE: The tail thing™ does NOT work with Ice Flowers, Poison Mushrooms, Items That Can Be Held, Super Leaves, SMB2 Mushrooms or 3-up Moons (it does the effect and sound but it doesn't change anything).

Here's some simple concept. The player can only move in the direction as the enemy NPCs. If they try to move in the other direction, they can't, because the key is blocked (unpressed immediately). This can be bypassed by spin jumping, so disabling spinjump will be useful to make players not being able to bypass this gimmick.

Super rad. Curious why it doesn't work on things like ice flowers...

Sounds like a lot of waiting.. Do you have some ideas for setups that would benefit from this? What I'm thinking could be more fun is "why not make the player control the spiny directly?"

Probably because they were added after 1.2? Not sure.

Is this glitch wise to focus a level around? I do think it is neat however that we now have uses for this glitch outside of just killing enemies, but still.

If you make jump blocker blocks invisible you can create horizontal floating in space.

(edit: it doesn't work that easily, it takes more effort)

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

How about this for a idea:

A fast paced idea that's like the Mega play arcade version of Sonic 1*! As former admin Pixelpest said it's possible to make this a reality, with heavy use of Lunalua that is!


*In case you guys didn't know what the Mega Play arcade version looks like, here's a video of it:

You can make speedrun levels without time limits by making the design facilitate going fast.

This gives me an idea for a Kaizo level by seeing this. I question the "Donot hurt me" part, but still interesting to attach a boo circle to a boom-boom. Though for normal levels, I would not recommend using more boos than three.
