First off i would like to welcome everyone to the new page , like i have said before this page is exclusive to Sonic Online Single Player one question we get asked the most is ....
.. Will you ever go back to Multiplayer?
We dont have a straight answer , if you wanted one i suppose it would have to be that we could go back to it when our model skills improve , until then no we will not go back to MP as we have exausted all possibilitys that can be done with the limitations of MP.
Thats why we have moved onto Single Player , because it can handle more , and it can push our content further than just death matches online.
So whats instore for Single Player , what could it possibly have that Multiplayer does`nt have? ... well , alot more , Single Player has no limit of what needs to Sync (Syncronise) to work. Everything in Single Player syncs perfectly , so all those moves like Running on water from Sonic 3 , Grinding , Running up walls and stuff , that can be done in Single Player perfectly.
Also we have some outside assistance with a outside application , similar to the 3rd person hack , or devmode hack applications for those who already are familiar with them , this one will allow the players to do alot more including pick up stuff as Silver , and throw it around like Silver in next gen.
So , as normal you all keep hearing me stall for time saying "Oh it`ll be done when its done" which is true , it takes time for our artists to get this done accurately , but thats what the players want , accuracy and fun so we are going to deliver the quality you deserve , which just so happens to be alot better than the MP experiance any of you may have had.
So whats the idea with the mod then?
Well a demo is in the works , whats in it? , well .... Sonic , who is now able to collect rings how we want , rings now work how they do in the classic Sonic games , and also make Super forms work correctly too , which is another speciality in store. We are currently working on gettng the E-Gunner enemy animated and skinned so we can have something to fight , and Silvers powers are being worked on as well as the "Abilitys" such as grinding and other things similar . also a Super form will feature in it aswell as the Special Zone which we are still trying to figure out which special zone we can use for the mod.
Expect some new pictures up soon , when i can get round to it things are progressing fast here so hang tight.
