OK, here's a mod I'm going to start soon. The story goes like this:

You play a Mimiga who missed his chance to escape the island. (takes place after normal ending) You need to find a way to escape. Tons of new areas and stuff. Not editing the monsters, but there might be some new bosses. Also, the Demon Crown makes a reappearence, and most of the beta music will appear somewhere in the game. Most of the weapons will be modded as well. Also, a bunch of hidden goodies as well as some fan-made backstory :D

If you guys have ideas for stuff though I'd love to hear them.

Seems like a neat idea. (It should be in the ideas sub-forum)

One thing, how do you plan on making new bosses?

Moved to the "Hack/Mod Ideas and Development" subforum since this mod has no demo.

While I like the premise of fleeing the falling island, I don't think the island would fall slowly enough to fit an entire game within the given timespan. You'd have to start the story some time before Quote destroys the DoctorCore, I'd suggest starting with an escape while the flowers are still being grown. We don't know how long Quote was napping in the hideout, so that gives some flexibility on the time period.

Or you could just go with Rule of Fun and just assume it took the island awhile to fall, I dunno.

Meh I dunno

Also I'm planning on the mod to take place after the island crashes, to be able to open up to new areas.

YES! sounds like an awesome mod! Nice :( and also very original. So this is going to end up insanely hard..yes?? ;) Opening up new sections in the map is a good idea. Some familiar sections of the maps could be seen but full of spikes and stuff :p. Like you could go through parts of hell at the end but with more cupids etc... But make sure you don't make the mod too hard. People want to be able to play it. Like a good hard (like Jenka's Nightmare). I will get back to you when I have some more ideas but currently my brain is waking up xD!

Agreed.

I like the idea for this mod. So how good are you at spriting? That tends to be a deciding factor. If your gonna make new areas and put them next to areas like Pixel's, then it would be good to have some skill. If not, then I'm sure there are plenty of bored spriters around here.

Also, do you know TSC yet?

EDIT: Woodenrat, snow zone is two words. I couldn't let that oppurtunity to be a smart-ass go by.
