I had an idea... was created by Kostas
Hello guys, how are you? Fine? I am glad.. :D
Yesterday I was very bored, so I made a clear copy of MBG, then I removed interiors and levels and tested some features from mod-making sources (Higuy's checkpoint and Jeff's marble skin selector). After that, I had an idea that got stuck in my head, to make a level pack in order to challenge my level building 'skills' (about 40-50 leves) including these features and full modified data folder. This means a new skybox, new textures, new shapes (not all.. basicaly only pads are enough) and about 3-4 new music tracks. The bad thing is that I am only level maker! And I can't make the rest.. So I became up with this idea (I know it is probably pointless but I want to try it. I am on vacation and I have nothing to do :P ), to make it available for anyone to participate on it. If you have nothing to do and you want to help me, just spend some of your free time to make some stuff and PM them to me. I want a cartoony theme for my level pack. (Something like MBPlus.. yeah).

These are the things I need:
Textures:
edge_white
edge_white2
a wall texture (sth like MBU and MBP one)
2-3 different styled texture sets with different colours
a bouncy floor
and frictions.. ice, grass, sand and space.

Skybox:
I don't want a skybox made with terragen. I need something simillar like the MBP's old one (The fried egg.. haha I loved this one). Something with clouds at the bottom.. A cartoony one.

Shapes:
I only need pads and a checkpoint model.

Sounds:
3-4 tracks and a checkpoint sound.


So. If you have nothing to do or you have found something you made in the garbage that you don't need, feel free to PM me :D I have a lot of levels planned, I just need the textures to start replicating them. I can wait for the rest. Anyways, I'm leaving now. I will check tomorrow if anyone is interested. Have a goodnight, day, evening, whatever! :D

So you're making a level pack? That sounds cool. Just a small note: 40-50 levels seems like a lot for a first-time mod. I'd recommend that you get started and see how many levels you can make before looking for additional people to help. I'm sure many people here would be happy to give you pointers on level building, but make sure you have something to show first :)

Best of luck, looking forward to hearing more.

Ask RandomityGuy about function supertemp_screenshot()
function clientcmd12dothepq() {
    commandToClient(LocalClientConnection, '34onthedancefloor');
}

That sounds cool. I make textures, interested?

You forget a thousand things everyday. Make sure Marble Blast isn't one of 'em.

I can also make some textures for you to use, in fact I already made some MB-cartoony style for no particular reason before.

What I like about your idea is that you've decided to stay feasible compared to a lot of other mods in recent years which have tried to achieve the magnitude of MBP. Even then, I would tone down the objective to making just 15-30 very replayable fun levels rather because you'll end up going for quantity over quality. Anyways, looking forward to more.

Anything you want to make for me is acceptable. Just PM it to me don't ask me if I am interested. So yeah I think I must make less levels for first time!
