Prerelease Level-Creation Megathread

Postby testtubegames » Mon Jun 24, 2013 5:52 pm

Since a few of us on here are playtesting the Shocktopus, I figured I'd throw this up as a place to show off our levels.

Made something particularly fun? Or want to demonstrate how one of the game levels can be improved? Let us take a look!

Oh my goodness! And I thought *I* made tough levels!

I nearly made the end of the first one... but that last jump was a doozy. Especially when I was determined to get all the stars -- or at least three of them. (As a side note, I think more-than-three stars might break the game if you pick them all up... so thanks for reminding me to fix that)

Yeah, that makes sense. It is not at all user friendly yet. In the menu, scroll over all the way to the right, and you'll find the user-levels. Either click "large" to make a fresh level, or paste code (like Chemi's) into the text box and press load.

Once you've got a level up, press 'Tab' to find the list of tiles. Click a tile (such as the basic platform block, near the top left). Now you'll be back in the level, and ready to add in platforms. Hold 'b' and click and drag the mouse across the level, and you'll add that particular type of tile. To delete tiles, hold 'backspace' and click and drag the mouse.

For more complex stuff, there's some very rough instructions for you on the page that pops up when you press 'Tab'. But this should get you started.

Just wondering, how many levels would be need to beat in order to use the level editor? I clear my cookies on exit, so I might not be able to beat all of them when I want to create levels. Is it like 5, like in Higgs?

Can you make t :He editor a bit more like agent :Higgs?

It would be a lot easier to use.

I haven't given tons of thought to the specifics of that, yet. (At the moment, of course, you can use it at any point.) What about if it was always unlocked? The only reason I have it locked in Agent Higgs is that I don't want people getting lost in the weeds before they understand the game. But would that really be a problem? I imagine most people would click 'play' before they click 'make your own levels.' Why stop people from getting to the editor?

Ah, interesting. So which part is key, there? Is it the fact that there's a well-defined "edit" mode, where clicking and dragging clearly places items? I think that would make sense here.

We may still need a pop-up box/screen (unlike with Agent :Higgs) since there are so many tiles to choose from, and nowhere to put them on the screen without blocking the level.
