Suggestions for the mod:

1. remove mbopal's dts shapes, as those do not belong to you guys

2. Remove the inversion floor, as thats a direct copy of elite and shows lack of origionality.

3. Do not try to copy things from PQ as that is unorigional.

4. Get better textures, as those ones are not very good quality.

1. we have done to make our own sharps.don't worry about this

2. we are thinking about this since we haven't use it in our levels

3. we have NOT copy pq's loadinggui and we don't know what's pq's loading gui look like. ( You means the pq's loading gui is look like happyroll's? )

4. new textures have done but jimmy have not show this at here

@Gary. If we listen Jeff's suggestions, we have many things to be removed, such as PhysicsModTrigger(CustomGravityTrigger), CustomJumpTrigger, InversionTrigger....... Well, too much. (I'm not mad at Jeff.)

So, Gary, that's a creation crisis. It's much dangerous than any kinds of crisis.

Frankly and seriously, OUR HAPPY ROLL MOD ISFACING DEATH. We must get over it. But what we should do now???

I don't think Jeff even tried to make you mad, lol.

The CustomJumpTrigger and PhysicsModTrigger are directly from PQ. I personally don't really care about this, cause you didn't copied its source code (...btw you're not even able to do it).

But keep in mind that taking features from other mods will result your mod to be itself a copy of many different mods. Which will make an unoriginal and annoying mix.

Personally, I feel that when it comes to something as basic as a physics mod trigger, you should be allowed to use it if you want to. Many mods have done similar things; even Elite has no jumping and custom gravity triggers. Might as well go yell at Elite then.

I personally don't think that the physics mod triggers are too big of a deal, considering they aren't really anything new, but maybe that's just me.

I love you, but your attitude is like that of a shrew. Your options? Take a pill or be my kill. Might I suggest that you wear a vest. Perish in class or be banished to the land of bluegrass, where dreams don't exist as you'll be eternally pissed.

Persionally , i think CostumGravTrigger , CostumJumpTrigger (and ect.) are BASIC code that any mod can do this just like the EasterEgg code and Teleport code. we CAN use it in our mod if we need but we CAN'T make it as a FEATURE of our mod. in fact we should make more features only HappyRoll have.
we should make more features and we may needn't remove the CostumGravTrigger , CostumJumpTrigger and ect .

I don't really care if you guys want to use those, at the end of the day its the quality of levels that use said features that will matter, as execution of both levels and features are requires in order to make these proper.

The fact that PQ calls this PhysMod and you guys Custom(whatever)Trigger already indicates differences in coding, and I assure you there are more things about the PhysMod we didn't reveal.

Hell, just to add to the fire, a lot of the programmers for the mods share code back and forth all the time. Seizure has helped me quite a bit with Marble Blast Fubar, as has Jeff. You're going to find some similar code in all of the Marble Blast mods. What really makes an outstanding game is replay-ability and originality (as IsraeliRD stated).

Here's a good technique I developed over the past few months of Fubar beta testing: Compare your levels with some of your favorites in Marble Blast Gold or Marble Blast Platinum. What was it about those levels in MBG / MBP that made you play them over again? Were they challenging? Was the level design unique and elaborate? Use these guidelines to play your own mod's levels and determine what's lacking in order to make them more enjoyable. It's better to have a handful of well-built levels with exciting new challenges and implementations from your programming team than to have a few hundred mediocre levels with a taste of the new code.

New status of Happy Roll: SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

I represent all the staffs to say sorry that our MOD is suspended, because most of staffs are at school now(maybe besides MBGAddict), we have little time to work on this MOD. But don't feel sad, we will start to work on it again during a long vacation. Maybe this mod can be published on late 2013 or early 2014, I guess.

After all, just be patient, it won't be dead, we can't waste our efforts.

@MBGAddict: don't stop working on it if you are not busy.

If it does die, it would be a good idea to release all the progress that you've accomplished.

Hmm, how many mods are actually still alive now besides MBP, PQ, and MBElite? I think thats it

I am a programmer. Most here know me for being one of the major contributors to Marble Blast Platinum and PlatinumQuest.

I call you out because I don't know you very much. Although adding some new staffs is a good idea, it's not easy yet.

@Jeff : we will release a complete version, but I don't know when. (Zumn is still working on this, but his school time is approaching.)

Every mod gets slowed down when it's school time, don't worry about it. Do progress whenever you can (weekends, holidays). Don't think oh yeah this is dead because it isn't just because it's school time.

Just making a suggestion:

Instead of having your staff talk about the mod in the thread, get on a social network, inform your members about the mod, discus progress, assignment, ect. We don't have to be with the mod the whole way. It is nice to have an update, but keep the inter staff chat to a minimum on the thread. It will improve the mod by enhancing communication, and keep secrets that might have been leaked if staff were talking about EVERYTHING in the PUBLIC thread. When we see there is a new post in this thread, we want an update, not a staff member complaining that they weren't informed about this or that.

Not trying to run your mod for you, just making a suggestion.
