Tip: By pressing Shift while placing event tiles, they will be made "silent" and will not appear until a map transition happens. Always use silent event tiles to draw paths in other maps (i.e. a Vanilla Dome event while the player is on the main map), or glitchy tiles may appear.

#Title Screen: The new one definitely looks a lot better from the old one. The sun has more detail, and Sicari is definitely a lot more defined here. Excellent job with the atmosphere. One thing I will nit pick on is that the ground from the old title screen looks better.

#Screeny1: The new one just has everything better. Les outliny and more solid and full. Great job. Liking the foreground decor.

#Screeny2: The new rainbow road is just better. That's all there is to it. Looks a lot more defined and structured. The old one looked a bit more bouncy.

#Screeny3: The biggest change I noticed was the upgrade in the background. Took a little bit to see the changes on the other ones. Very nice job either way!

#Screeny4: Again, what caught my attention was the upgraded background. You know what the world atmosphere means.
In the past week or so, I've been thinking of ways to distance this hack even more from the original Sicari to make it its own thing. I've already mentioned that I will be using HDMA throughout, but I decided I would also go back and add layer 3 backgrounds to some levels. The only thing holding me back was the bug where the status bar would hide behind layer 1, but now I have that fixed, I'm good to go. I'll show off two levels with this feature so far.


The first one is Journey's Beginning, where I moved the background clouds onto layer 3. As you can see, I also added big clouds towards the bottom of the sky.



I am so proud with how Jerry's Castle looks now. As you can see, the sky and the castle walls are shown on layer 3. You may also notice that since you last saw this level, I darkened the background, so it's easier to differentiate from the foreground. (although nobody pointed that out. odd.)

Anyway, please comment and give feedback! ^w^
The first BG looks all right, a bit generic World 1-y which is fitting considering where it is in the game. Do the clouds scroll at a different speed to the hills now they're on Layer 3?
Jerry's Castle looks a lot better than it did in the original, giving me a sort of Zelda 2 vibe. I like it.

Usually inactive/procrastinating on a hack idea.
Nice, using the layer 3 will make your hack even more fresh.
The clouds are kinda simplistic, because you used one color to draw them. But they aren't looking bad, and these are only clouds, white is fairly enough to draw some.

I especially like what you've done to Jerry's castle. Now that the outside part of the level is layer 3, it'll scroll differently, making an awesome effect.
This is the kind of detail that interest me, great job as usual! #w{:>}
Smexy second background!! Although the first one is very good too. Those clouds look nice.

Well, is good you are distancing the Remastered from the original. That sounds better. I wouldn't mind if it becaem a whole new game even.

Keep it coming!! :D

Today I'll be showing Tranquility Way which is a remake of Autumn Meadow. This level takes place right outside the forest of Umbra, and is the level just before it. The level has a completely different atmosphere than it did before, being more lively, yet still peaceful. This is one of the levels I may be extending at some point, or at least touching up the design, as it is way to easy to speedrun. Speedrunners need some sort of challenge, lol
Anyway, screenshots.



The trees are of course on two separate layers. In Sicari, I was lollazy and simply used a palette swapped version of the default grass background, but hey, I want to make each level feel as unique as possible.

Also, I'm happy to announce that Sicari Remastered will be seeing a demo this C3, despite me previously saying otherwise. Look forward to that ;)

Please comment/give feedback!

Liked the changes as usual,i can really say your backgrounds got a way more cartoony lol.
Also that hdma looks really awesome, keep up the good work!
#unbanMB980
Hack getting sexier and sexier evrytime!! #tb{^V^}

I do feel that calm atmosphere, and is good, because your hack is mostly action packed. A change of things is always nice, and you did it well!!

I also liked the slight differnce in color of the Hosts. Maybe the return of the pink enemies is here too? :3

Anyway, good job. Keep it coming!!

And I'm not a speedrunner, so meh

After this update, it makes me want to play your hack even more! I love your tilesets, they are really well drawn. Im not sure if I said this before, but your player graphics look really awesome as well! Keep up the good work Eevee, cant wait to see more!

I told you there would be new levels.

I didn't tell you there would be new worlds.

Here are two sneak peek screenshots of: Demonia! Yes, indeed, Sicari will now step into Niscura's very dimension late in the hack, just after defeating Crimson. There are three levels in Demonia.


As you can see, Demonia has a blood red glowing sky, and it is composed mostly of a charcoal like rock. I'll show more tomorrow once I've worked on the tileset a little.
Good surprise, I wasn't expecting that you'd make new worlds! So this is Niscura's dimension, huh? It's quite fitting to her, well done.
I like this tileset, however I find the ground tiles a bit too repetitive. You said that you're still working on it, so I won't complain too much about that, I just suggest you to add some decoration elements for the ground, to make it look more varied.

^+1 , also E- confirmed for ninja.
Welp, it's really good to see that Sicari Remastered will have even more new thing, i think it motivate people to play it.
Keep up the good work.

Dang, I'm really looking forward to this revamp.

In your latest level though I can't help but feel that the foreground and the background don't contrast enough. I'd call for more definition on the FG outline rather than tweaking the palettes - that might just be enough. I do like the texture, although I think things like lava-filled cracks and skulls might be enough to liven ("deathen"?) it up.

While I'm late to the tree background as well, I think that as trees recede into the distance against bright sky, the trees should be brighter than the trees up front for a better illusion of distance. Right now they look kinda like shadows which I think would be more befitting of a night setup.

Just look above you...
If it's something that can be stopped, then just try to stop it!
I'm really looking forward to this remake Eevee, it looks really cool. I also really like the tilesets you're using. Keep up the great work!

Wow what? So things are getting more serious and edgier now? A full trip into the very lands of Niscura? Me likes it!! :3


The graphics look as good as always, and I'm sure you have some very nice gimmicks planned for this.

I can foreshadow the last boss will be much more epic!!


Keep it up!!

I've been doing a few aesthetical updates. Today, the first level.



As far as general appearance goes, you'll notice that I've lightened the background and updated the HDMA to something more colourful. I've also added trees to the tileset, which should really help make these levels look all the more detailed.

More to come later ;)
You can't never go wrong adding trees to a tileset, that's a fact. Unless well... the tileset is one wheere trees would just not fit. But you know what I mean. Trees are always a nice detail when they can be added. And I see the details on the wood and all. Seisy :3!!

And yeah, thr BG looks a bit less dark. Not bad. You need to lighten things up sometimes.

Anyway, good as always. Let's see more later on.

That Cyan to Blue HDMA looks lovely.
Welp, i really see nothing of wrong with the new decoration tiles isn't really distracting and looks really nice, i'm still not sure about upside down grass but lol.
#unbanMB980
I still think that there should be more contrast in the shading, but looks better.
That new hdma gradient is so fancy!
The background won't cause confusion anymore now. The trees are sexy, they fit well with the rest of the tileset.

The only thing that I'm not sure about is this:

In my opinion, the spring boards are looking kinda out of place because they are too dark. That's not really a problem, though.
Other than that, the level is very sweet, nice work!
