Odd request: Character creation system

    The thing is, most of those are just variables. Add a slider, and you're good. For the remaining ones, you basically just need to copypasta code from existing characters.

    I don't like this suggestion because it would go against what makes SMBC so special. Don't get me wrong I think it's a good idea. Just not for this game

    Well, looks like it's four to one.

    You are completely underestimating the amount of work required to create characters, and, in the process, insulting Jay.

    Okay, it was a bad idea in retrospect. I stand by my statement that it would be cool, just unbelievably impractical.

    You're not the only one on this forum to have had such an idea . . . though you may be the first to admit it.

    Really? Huh, that's surprising. I had heard people say that I went into more detail than anyone else (which doesn't surprise me, i do tend to take a bad idea way too far), but I wasn't aware I was the first to voice this idea.

    I never denied it was a cool idea. It is in fact a fantastic idea, it's just too impractical. :)

    Actually I meant "an idea that would be cool but unbelievably impractical", not this idea specifically. I was mainly thinking of the various requests for Super Mario Bros. 3 Crossover, Super Mario World Crossover, Super Mario All-Stars Crossover, and whatever else.

    I think I may revise my original thought to make the WYSIWYG editor be a bit overly restrictive, and more for proof of concept than anything else. Think the stage builder in Brawl vs what modders have done (which would be the people with AS knowledge). If you're against this, though, that's also fine. The WYSIWYG editor could include stuff like Speed (with stopping-on-a-dime assumed), Jump Height (treated the same in all situations), Projectile Path/Speed/Damage (i stand by my belief that that is quite easy to program), and the like.

    Edit: Oh, okay. I've had a few of that type, too, in particular I'd love someone with Blender experience to make Mario 64 crossover.

    Character Creation?

    No.

    Please don't ruin the good name of Super Mario Bros. Crossover....

    Again, I'm aware that 90% of created characters are going to suck. But there's almost certainly going to be at least one massively awesome character spawned from the system. I'm part of enough modding communities to know this principle.

    If you aren't going to at least be constructive then just don't say anything.

    Ok, a whole character creation system is too complicated to implement. It would be super awesome, but too impractical to implement.
    However, it would have a character TWEAKING system that allows to alter simple things like hitboxes, shot limit, speed, acceleration, jump height, animation delay, gravity on the current characters and their projectiles. It's still complicated but not as complicated as a whole character creation system, and still it has a lot of potential.
    Just another suggestion following this one. :)

    It seems like everywhere you turn someone is worried about SMBC being "ruined"

    It's kind of annoying

    People are just trying to share thoughts and ideas, it's ok to say you don't like the idea but you have no objective basis to make a statement such as "IT WILL RUIN THE GAME!!!!!!1"

    Besides Jay knows what he is doing. So no worry's.

    I'm sorry officer, does there seem to be a problem?
