[Small Map Pack] WetPack v1b
« on: October 04, 2015, 05:18:22 PM »

So with Rozpack v4 and PBJ recently released, and with v5 on the horizon, there sure are a lot of maps floating around.  Surely we don't need any more, right?

Of course we do.

Introducing the WetPack, a brand new pile of six funky fresh maps for the pleasure of your playholes.  This has been a project of mine since early summer of last year, and it pleases me tremendously to have it released.  Even if one person enjoys one map in this pack, I can consider it a success.

But enough talk, let's get wet!

Grab v1b from Best-Ever!

Spoiler for Hiden:
Q: Oh my god Thunder why did you call it the WetPack
A: Initially, a lot of the ideas I had for the maps involved water taking a very dominating role in the map.  As time went on, I abandoned a lot of those ideas as I discovered what was doable in this engine, and the name sort of lost its weight.  Ever still, the pack had already been established as the WetPack, and quite frankly, I think it rolls off the tongue better than the ThunderPack or the OnoPack or something silly like that.

Q: Why are there two boss themes for five maps?
A: I liked the variety.  That aside, the alternating scheme for boss music I have set up works well enough for the maps.  I probably won't be adding another boss theme for v2, whenever that happens.

Q: Isn't WET05 your I.N.S.P.I.R.E. map?
A: Indeed it is!  Being my first experience with custom textures, I figured it would be appropriate to try and keep the map relevant.  That map's in a bit of a precarious spot, however.  I'll see how the revisions are received.

Q: What's that brown face thing on this map?
A: That's a Kabu!  They're from the Kirby series.  I hid one in every level, so see if you can track 'em down!

Music credits and such are all in the readme.  Thanks for downloading, or if you didn't, thanks for looking at the pretty words on this page!  If you didn't do that either, then frankly, I don't know what you're doing here.

As always, feedback is well appreciated!  My goal here is to make a pack that people can enjoy, so I would need to know if people actually enjoy it.

Heya!  Just dropping by to announce that v1b has been released!  Admittedly, I only made minor changes, so to make up for the underwhelming amount of differences, I added a new map!  Introducing WET06, a fun airship starring the musical talent of one Dr. Freeman!  Hopefully this'll be enough to pass the time between now and whenever I drop v2a.

Changelog and updated links are on the first post.  Thanks!

Hey everyone!  Just stopping by to mention, no, I'm not dead!  Rather the opposite, in fact.  I've been hard at work changing up the existing maps and creating new and exciting things!  Unfortunately, I'm not particularly sure how many maps to expect for the next version.  It's all dependent on multiple factors, but I think it'll either be 10 or 15 maps.  In addition, a couple of the old maps have been completely replaced.  I think the results will be pleasing.

I don't expect to make many progress updates regarding the maps themselves, but one in particular has received particularly negative feedback, and so I figure an update regarding it is warranted...
Spoiler for Hiden:
WET02-- Ravine at the Peak

Everything you see here is, of course, subject to change.  Mostly regarding texture offsets.

I'm excited for the next installment of the WetPack.  It'll be bigger and better than ever!  See you all then!

Spoiler for Hiden:
And yet, I'm not alone for the coming release...

We'll all be Free Men soon.
