[Small/Normal/Environmental] [KS+] Trail 1.2
« on: July 10, 2017, 13:26:53 »


I threw something together in two days for Knytt of the Month Klub #11, but it's been updated since then. It now has 13 rooms and three secret rooms. (one of which contains a toast fact! sort of!)

Obviously, it's not very extensive or high quality, but it feels good to just get something out without spending months of refining and procrasinating over it. I credited it as ncrecc because that's what I go by on Glorious Trainwrecks.


Spoiler: Changelog (click to show/hide)

VERSION 1.0: Download it from Knyttlevels or straight from Glorious Trainwrecks
VERSION 1.1: Download it from Knyttlevels, for real this time!
VERSION 1.2: Download it from Knyttlevels
Both versions require egomassive's Knytt Stories Plus.

There were some really nice room designs here. I particularly liked how multi-purpose x999y998 is, and really enjoyed the blue key challenge.

Your use of default tilesets here is superb. The rooms are so pretty and cohesive, it's hard to believe these are the same graphics I've been seeing since the dawn of Knytt Stories. The challenges were good too. *gives star*

I actually got stuck with only the red and yellow keys because I couldn't return without being killed, like Sergio said. I had to cheat my way back to continue playing. There is also a SGE on 999x999, on the roof above the water enemies.

It's a small and pretty level that is quite refreshing to play. I loved the blue key puzzle in particular.

And egomassive posted his reply as I was writing mine... What a coincidence!

Thank all of you guys! This was just a minor thing I started in the middle of the night, I didn't expect this much praise!
In 1.1, those errors are all patched now. I also added a little more content since I feel especially bad for releasing it in a state like that.
Check the main post!

When I'm trying to install the new version, my client says "Error: Possible exploit" which makes me think the file is corrupt or there is an invalid character in the filename? Can you reup? Thanks!

It's because of the dot in the file name (1.1)
Download link/name updated, sorry for the inconvenience!

In the new area, the animals walk off the ledges.

Not a bad level, though I wish it had ambience within it so that it doesn't sound empty when the music ends.

I added some ambiance near water areas, and I converted the non-cutscene tracks to ambiance as well, so they loop like they do in FiNCK.
On the downside, you can't mute it anymore since there's no option to mute ambiance.

Also, I fixed the animals walking in midair.

You can make music loop in KS+ without turning it into ambiance. Put an entry like this in your World.ini:
Code: [Select]
[Loop Music]
1=True
7=True
This would make song tracks 1 and 7 repeat but otherwise behave like music tracks. I'm just telling you for future reference.

Didn't know this, actually! Will take this to consideration if I actually make a level! :D

That was a fun short adventure. As ego already said, you made good use of the default tilesets here :D  The challenges were pretty nice, although...

Good work!
