I'm sorry to say I got sidetracked after 11 artifacts, 31 creatures, and 19 coins. I still want to finish it though.

Edit: I made it to the final secret.
Spoiler: (click to show/hide)
One thing I want to do after finishing this level is to put all the music in an album to simply listen to. With the music stopping every time I went underwater, I feel like I never got to hear any of the songs all the way through.

Well, that was the only way I could think to implement the final secret to make sense. I understand your complaint though and will take it into consideration for future endeavours.

I wanted it to feel like you were underwater so stopped the music. I guess I could have done something similar to Starbound and had a muffled, underwater version for the music for those screens.

Letting the music fade out when going underwater makes sense and it probably helps tremendously with the illusion of being underwater. It's just that sometimes I was digging a music track. By the way, I forgot to say I really enjoyed the experience. As large of a task as it was, it was still worth sticking through it to the end. When I finally found the last creature, I almost couldn't believe it. I felt joy and relief, but mostly satisfaction.

I'm glad you liked it! I'm pretty sure there is one GC that is a little too well-hidden. I feel like a lot of people missed it.

I was finally able to play it in with a ball (in unreleased KS Ex version). Its speed makes exploration levels much more fun. With that and with knowledge that I need to keep track of all water I encounter before I progress in the story, I really enjoyed the level. Vast and beautiful.

One bug I found: x1004y998 checks for a wrong flag.

Edit: I made it to the final secret.
:shocked: :whoa: O_o :O
I was ready to bet anything that no-one would be able to do it without the editor. I even used some code to find stuff I missed in map.bin. (gonna incorporate that code into the editor)
