Latest News: An Unofficial/Official VLDC11 Compilation is happening!
If you haven't heard or seen by now, AnEvilGhost is working on a VLDC11 compilation! He already has all 111 levels inserted, and just needs help to get the project closer to completion and release. Here's the areas he needs help with:
-Overworld and Submap creation
-Bugfixing, especially overworld-related bugfixing
-and a few other aspects that come with compiling a VLDC compilation.
I think it's great that a user stepped up to make a compilation where I and others were unable/unwilling to do so, and this project, while technically unofficial, has the blessings of the SMWC PR Team and Admins. We'd love to see this project become a full reality, so I hope we can enlist people to help with those final parts AnEvilGhost needs assistance for!
