Level Creation Megathread
You all know what this means...
Yup, Velocity Raptor has a new (beta) level editor. Go create some rad levels, and come back and show us all what you've made. (Bugs/problems with the new system are welcome, too!)

Done and done. You can now set the time for the block and for the raptor.robly18 wrote:Request: ability to change times for the fire tile?
It might be doable. On my laptop, though, it's comically laggy, which I suppose helps because I have more time to control the raptor. It worked in 'Newton' mode... and in 'Measured' mode I made it about halfway before I fell off. It seems if might be possible if your run it perfectly.A Random Player wrote:But you have to take time dilation/length contraction into account, I think.
That's great! It's funny how little assumptions I had when making the game engine totally fail when there's a level editor involved. Little rules of thumb like "you'll never need more than a dozen trap doors", or "you'll never add more than one bullet per frame" completely go out the window. It's fun to see you all find and push those boundariesA Random Player wrote:This level is possible only by exploiting a glitch (or rather, lag/imperfection]:Code: Select all

How do you flip the starting position of garages?

Re: Level Creation Megathread
There's no way to do that at the moment. Practically, the behavior of the garages should be the same no matter which one is closed first. (If the far door is closed, then you can wander all the way into the garage before tripping it... if the near door is closed, it opens right when you touch it  closing the far door  and you can wander all the way into the garage before tripping it again.)A Random Player wrote:How do you flip the starting position of garages?
So for simplicity, I had left it out. I could add it in if it's something you'd like.

Well, I had just thought if a level needed a certain garagevelocity going left somewhere in the level, this would be needed. Wouldn't be that common though.testtubegames wrote:There's no way to do that at the moment. Practically, the behavior of the garages should be the same no matter which one is closed first.

It appears that a raptor time less than 10 in the fire block give the raptor exactly 10 seconds of fire.testtubegames wrote:Done and done. You can now set the time for the block and for the raptor.robly18 wrote:Request: ability to change times for the fire tile?
