VVVVVV Help / Re: Moving goes through disappear

you could set platform bounds for the moving platforms below the disappearing ones, but i dont think theres any other way

i really dont think of their ages to be that diverse tbh
to me they seem really abstract and assigning vitellary to "50s" or anyone else to anything just feels, like...wrong?? idk

Gameplay is focused on a bit too much nowadays
Itís like. Yeah, whatís a level withoht good gameplay, but when it starts to outweigh the plot by too much, then you just have a boring level.
TL;DR while gameplay is important, it isnít everything that makes a level.
i disagree - you can have a level that's just gameplay with minimal or no plot and it can be great (some of the levels that come with the game are like this, ex. line wrap), and you can have a level that's just plot with minimal or no gameplay and it can be great too (again, some of the levels that come with the game are like this, ex. victuals)
i think it's best to have a balance of both, but as a level creator it's good to balance your level around your skillset! for example, if you're a good story writer, you could put the spotlight on the plot, and focus on everything else slightly less. or push yourself out of your comfort zone, and do something you aren't too good at
i recently released VVVVVVinktober, a level where i themed each room after an inktober prompt, forcing me to focus on gameplay (which wasnt my strong suit) and it really helps you grow as a level maker/designer!
honestly, like i said, just do what you want, and have fun with it

of course there are exceptions to every rule so do what you want as long as you do it well

i've talked about how great this level is elsewhere but the character focus is incredible, as is with all of coral's levels. it's fantastic and i wouldn't have expected anything except first place for it  :P

steam says 93 hours but for like 2.5 years at least i used the non steam version, so!!

Any particular reason why? Is their a version of the game better than the Steam version? If yes I MUST KNOW!!! please don't let it just be VED
no all the version are the same except for the mac version which is out of date (i think? this might not be true)

VVVVVV Levels / VVVVVVinktober

This is a level I made in which each room is based off an Inktober prompt! I didn't really have the dedication to actually do Inktober so I hope you all like this instead.

Screenshots (click to enlarge)

Sorry there's only two, but I don't want to spoil the level!
I tried to make it a little more difficult than I usually make my levels, so I hope it isn't too hard.

this level is fantastic! however, there are some problems I had:

the precision platforming in Scaffold and Circumstance was way harder than anything else in the level and just not fun
I had to use the editor to fix it so I could continue

in Beanstalk, you can repeatedly press action to go through the gravity line
it'd be smart to use warp tokens instead or put the line much farther down so the glitch doesn't work

there are spikes on the bottom row in The Sound of Running Water but none on the bottom in Circumstance

the terminal in Turning Point does nothing

if you re-trigger the terminal in progressing toward uncertainty, it plays the whole cutscene (it should probably just play the last part where it destroys the lines)

in progressing toward uncertainty you can use the aforementioned gravity line glitch to get stuck

that being said, this level is kind of a masterwork when it comes to difficulty. it's extremely good at pushing the player just a bit out of their comfort zone.
I found myself thinking that if I designed it, it'd be a lot less challenging, but the way you designed it constantly caught me off guard!

honestly, for players better at the game than me it's a must play for sure
keep up the fantastic work!

this level is pretty great for a first level
i have pretty much the same complaints as everyone else:
- its impossible to reactivate the purple lasers without invincibility
- the fast pink boxes are annoying more than anything
- you should remove playtesting things (like the unlock in the first room) when releasing your level
- cutscene bars still stay when you do the script once youve got all 4 trinkets
- deactivated yellow lasers add cutscene bars for some reason
- a lot of scripts play a terminal sound at the start, you probably shouldnt use the say(-1) method cuz it does that

honestly my biggest gripe is that it feels more like a script/entity/oddity (vvvvvv has a lot of the latter hahaha) test more than anything, rather than a formulated level
this is really unique and fun, though!!
keep up the good work!
