You could make some kinda ''Steampunk textures''

Some guy that does DTS shapes and levels.

AWESOME time HINT : When making PQ level place your custom interiors and textures in platinum/data/interiors_pq/custom

What are Steampunk textures?

Okay all the levels are almost planned... I've only got like 3 1/2 realm left to plan. And also, would anyone like to help me out with this mod??? I currently don't have a proboards, and don't plan to make one until atleast a few months... You know, so that I've got something to make it about! (When more progress gets done) BUT there are MANY ways you can contact me: Email (In my contact icons), YouTube (On Hey I'm Techy in the Say Hello Board), and you can send me a PM, or even just post at that!

EDIT: Duh! I need to tell you what I need! :

Level Makers
Texture Makers
Skyboxes
CODERS!
GUI Makers

I understand that many of you are already in a mod or 2, but if you're not or you feel you have more time for another one, APPLY! Also remember: Because of the sequence of this mod (world-form), there will need to be LOADS of textures for the 15 themes, and 15 skyboxes... So maybe 2 skyboxes makers and a good few texture makers... Coders??? Dunno yet, as I'm currently not focused on that... GUI? Well, I've done some main menu GUI, but ofcourse there's much more to be done! All music is done, so I don't need music-makers... Oh and if anyone knows WHERE to code additional tabs, I NEED TO KNOW! I've heard it's got something to do with playmissiongui, but all I've got is .dso, which I can't code into...

Yeah it is . But actually not all of them all skies... Totalling, it may be around 10-12. But yeah that's still a lot... Also, can Terragen do, like, castles or volcanoes? 'Cause we'll need those...

EDIT: Drew out some new level ideas today! :

Ludicrous Speed
Invisible Barrier Box
A Maze?
Jumping Gaps
Combination Course
Road Block

And mayb some more...

Okay! Do you need some of the level ideas or are you just going to make new ones? Just remember that the levels ARE (mostly) planned... So I could figure out a way to send level plans to you... Also, since you don't have MBSS textures, you could make levels in MBG textures and I'll decode to MBSS textures

Making a level... could take a pretty long time... (I suck at mazes)

You just gave me a good level idea. (not stealing your ideas, I swear) I'll have to write it down...


EDIT :: You gave me an idea for an entire level pack. A mod could even sprout from the idea you gave me (Not that I'm going to make it).

In a sense I'm honored . But at the same time, I'm curious as to know what your idea was... Care to tell? Not to be pushy or whatever; if you don't want to tell that's fine, but I'm just curious to know as I apparently gave it to you

Also, UPDATE:

It's almost time to get Constructor working, because there are only 3 (out of 15) realms left to plan and all levels are planned! That's the equivalent of 60 levels! Progress!

Yeah it's good, but just not the kind of level we're looking for... If you are capabe of making obstacle courses, freefalling courses, large speed courses, mazes, strategical courses (where it requires the player to THINK), or other original things - those are the MAIN types of levels I'm looking at... There are others as well, like beginner/training courses, but other than that there are also different types of levels (because there are 300 levels, we need LOTS of new ideas!), but for now those are the main kinds

I'd like to comment saying 300 levels is going overboard. MBOpal said it once and I fried them for that. I'd recommend 100-150, since 300... boy you won't be finished in a long time.

Other factors include: 300 is too much, it feels the game just keeps going and going and going without real advancements and you don't know when you'll finish. Additionally, if you plan for 300 you need a ton of new features and chances are you'll use them all up in all ways possible, in which case you may as well not have the community build something as its just a repeat.

Please rethink and if you go in a worlds style, then you should combine some and put them as later realms since the combination probably makes them harder.

What I'm thinking about doing is taking out like 4 or 5 realms (that's the equivalent of 80 or 100 levels) and saving them for like an expansion pack version of the game... So like, the regular MBSS would contain around 180, 200, or 220, while an even BIGGER version (MBSS: Expansion Pack) would contain those realms plus a whole ton of new features... Hopefully you get what I'm trying to point out and do . Evening out these 300 levels into different versions of the game... Bottom line: The biggest version of the mod WILL contain the full 300 levels, however the regular may be kept at around 180-200 .

That is a huge number of levels you want. I would suggest that you tone it down to around 80 or so for the first release. That's how many MBO is aiming for, and it's taking them a long time, already.

I guess if you aren't after quality like MBO/PQ then you can go for 300...

Look I don't really care HOW LONG this takes me, but I've thought about it for MONTHS and want to aim to give it a try! And Matan, I've thought a lot about what you said on how 300 is WAY too much. I TOTALLY agree after looking back on my level list... SO, I've come up with a plan to EVEN OUT those 300 levels:

Okay, MBS will release in different sets and versions. In this manner, people can pick which set to download if they think 300 will end up frustrating them! Here are the sets I was thinking:

Marble Blast SuperStar (original mod):

10 realms. 200 levels

Marble Blast SuperStar: Expansion Pack (Biggest one, most levels, all realms. All that PLUS loads of new features! [already planned ])
15 realms. 300 levels

Marble Blast SuperStar: Platinum Set (Like a basic upgrade to MBS)
9 realms. 1 BONUS realm. 190 levels

Marble Blast SuperStar: Uber-Extreme Set (For those who want the toughest of the tough in MBS!)
5 realms. 100 levels

MBS Basic Realms Level Packs (Each of the following realms [20 levels each] will be available for separate download as a level pack, still including new textures and things.)
4 realms. 80 levels.

Realms for level packs:
Training Realm
Beginner Realm
Royal Realm
Intermediate Realm

So, uh, do you guys think this a more reasonable idea than releasing all 300 levels as one??? With this, players may choose HOW they want the game... But just remember that the Expansion Pack may seem intense and frustrating, but also remember that it also includes MANY new features and I'm working on some in-game things I won't reveal at this time that will ONLY be available through the EP! So what do you guys think?

Because you are just one person, I would say that 200 levels is already going completely overboard. Alone that will probably take about 4 years with dedication, plus the work for the rest of the mod.

I don't think, even though you claim you don't care, will get bored and completely give up within the first year.

Look everybody PLEASE relax... I don't want anyone to think this will be fail because of the level number... Jeff, I've already told you that I don't use my gmail email anymore...

Okay let me just get something straight so that this DOES NOT turn into a flame war! I know that I'm one person and know that there is no possible way I could do this alone. Ian, you may even be right about 1 year from now! Do you guys read ANY of the previous posts??? I am still in a PLANNING stage, so MUCH could and most likely WILL change before I'm out of it... So please calm down guys... Just because you may not be used to a 300-level game doesn't mean it will turn into a complete failure if the accurate planning is done! So please, give me time. Things will work out.

And sorry if I sounded a bit rude, but I'm just trying to make sure that this DOESN'T turn into a flame war and so that there's a firm understanding of everything...
