Oh noes! We can't die here just yet!

Hey, it's that guy again who published one level, talked about his next, then never produced! D:

lol, anyhoo I'd rather not see this board completely die just yet. I'm actually working on yet another level without having finished the last one. Thing is while I started out well on my last level, the building process was getting too slow and ad-libby for me. I had the layout planned, but not planned well enough. Also, two other stage ideas just would not stop bugging me in my head.

I'm now in the early process of creating one of those new stages. My new design approach should make things much better and hopefully quicker as well.

Not only this, I am just getting to trying out the movement editor. So far so good. Looks like one particular stage scenario is now especially possible thanks to this movement editor! =)

Anyhoo, as long as I can keep myself slowly but steadily designing this stage (the hard part, personally), things will be looking up!


Heck, if this design process works out, I wouldn't mind attempting to design two stages at once.

Getting a little further in. Started working on some enemies and bullets and stuff. Going to start making the alpha level soon. Also learning just a bit more about the movement editor.

I am really, really late to this party, aren't I? I just bought the game a few days ago. Seems like everyone's already moved on.

I'm not sure where the main Blast Works talk usually is, but this place apparently isn't the best indication of activity. I am still working on my stage, albeit slowly. I had to pull myself out of a slight slump due to concerning myself over building the stage's background. I'm trying though to focus on the gameplay first.

Still slowly working on it, but the process is smooth. I'm also getting better with the movement editor. Outside of "Target" which just doesn't seem to work properly at all, everything else has been pretty good. Heck, I almost don't see any reason why it needed to be cut out. As it is, it would of been glitchy, but it would of still been enough to expand the game's depth at least ten-fold.

After working on my stage I played around with a boss idea I once would have not consider. It basically mimics the mini-boss from Ikaruga Stage 3, having 4 turrets revolving around the main body. I actually got it to work almost perfectly. My bullet pattern left a bit to be desired, but that's a whole end-level boss right there if I wanted it in my current level.

Lol Bordering, I know what you mean.
I got this game about a week ago and I'm on here looking for tips on the basics of how to play and get the most out of this game (I currently can't figure out how to use my awesome triangle ship! D: ) and it appears as if the whole message board's dead. :(

Slam... ON!!

I can help you out if you need tips. :o

For starters, if you're talking about literally picking and using your custom ship to play with, I believe you'll have to first complete Campaign 4 in Arcade Mode on Pilot difficulty. May. It's been so long since I did that. But once you do, you can go to the main menu in Play mode, pick either Arcade, Campaign, or User levels, then after picking a profile, you'll be able to scroll left/right through the available ships. It'll include ones you've made or downloaded.

You can't use custom ships though in the editor during level previews unfortunately.

EXTRA TIP: When making a ship, select the "Tools" tab, then scroll right to find the Hitbox toggle option. You'll be able to see your ship's hitbox. You can't change its size, but you can change the size and position of your own ship to fit around the hitbox.
