I have a new ST2 level for everyone to enjoy. I got the idea for this level while making Trump. It's really just an expansion of a part of Trump, but it works pretty well.

Here's Ten at a Time.

Yay, a new Subterra 2 level. Those seem to be rather sparse.

I made a SubTerra 2 level. It's not difficult, but I think it's interesting.

...I feel prolific.

I've finished another level, but I'm not going to post it yet; I intend to post it in a batch of perhaps 5 or so levels (some with 2 players).

EDIT: Mostly done a set of 5 related levels. Will post soon.

The promised five levels are nearly finished (just testing them now), but in the meantime here's a really tiny level for your perusal.

Not sure where to put this... I noticed that in one of Stew Boy's ST2 levels (Thelaser), the easy exit is impossible to access since it requires a white key, which does not exist in the level.

And... done.

Five levels to be played in sequence.

The second and third are included twice once properly, and once with the easy gem quota set to match the hard gem quota in order to demonstrate the hard solution. All the others demonstrate the hard solution already.

These levels are fairly large / long. I did a few things that I think are interesting. The second level requires dogs to be used like crates for the hard solution. The fifth level involves controlling two players simultaneously while keeping a lookout for both the Mountain King and a Knight (fortunately the presence of two players sometimes confuses the Mountain King). There might be other thing's I've forgotten.

This level is not finished, and may not be solvable, but I decided to post it because for some reason the players keep exploding. :?

I'm 90% sure that it would be solvable if the players didn't explode randomly. Does anyone have any idea why they do this?

I haven't been able to force a player explosion, but there was a thread where bug behavior and levels were discussed, and having your cloned player activate a cloner did in fact lead to some problems.

I had a look through the topic CM but i didn't find a Fairy Madness. There was one that was called something else with madness after it though.

Anyway heres another level i made that is about boarding an alien spaceship and accidentally destroying mankind. It's not all fun and games though because theres a tricky puzle that involves cushions and eggs when you try hard mode! :D

Thanks. Yes, I've made several levels called "??? Madness", but I couldn't remember which ones I had submitted.


Huh. The levels on the first page are apparently the only ones I submitted since that last large chunk.

Expect another large group of levels sometime soon. :D

So, here's my next set of levels.

SubTerra 1
1.A quick jaunt: If I recall correctly, this was my first Subterra level. I made a few small changes recently, though. In particular, I accounted for the fact that you can't pass a blocked gate.
2.Explosions: Another simple, easy level.
3.Four Quarters: There are a fair number of 2-player levels, but this one doubles that! By which I mean, it has 4 players.
4.House of Ice: The only one of these four that was made recently; it's the one where I recorded a hard mode solution, and then in the replay the poltergeists behaved differently. So while the solution does not satisfy the hard gem quota, it is possible by trapping poltergeists.

SubTerra 2
1.Shops Madness: I already submitted this one, but I decorated it to fill the whole screen. For the purpose of contests (if there even is a ST2 contest), this should supercede the original. Functionally, however, it is identical.
2.Fairy Madness: I think this was already "finished" at the time I submitted my last level pack (ie my first level pack). However, it did not have a hard mode solution, so I expanded it and added one.
3.Trap those Fairies!: Or "Fairy Madness 2". Just a simple level; not hard at all.
4.Be Fairy Precise: Or "Fairy Madness 3". I haven't yet seen a level in which you must kill a fairy with a conveyor block. This one requires that twice.
5.Quirks 2: I took Wonkyth's level, stripped out everything except the basic structure, and made a similar level to demonstrate a few odd and undocumented things. Unfortunately, I could not find 8 things to mention... so I used the Mountain King to fill it two of them, and a pair of undocumented yet probably fairly well-known facts for two others. In fact, I'd say the first two are the most interesting.
6.Keys Madness: Another simple level. Very easy.
7.The Vault of Eternity: Formerly called "Keys Madness". I was unable to record a solution for this one because when I entered the exit, nothing happened, as I reported in the other thread. If that issue is ever resolved, I'll resubmit it with a hard mode solution.
8.King: This is in fact the first Subterra 2 level I ever made. Well, sort of in fact I took that level, decorated it, and added a hard mode solution.



Why does this forum not have a [list] BBCode? :?

Also, I've been wondering: how many more ST2 levels are needed before an expansion pack can be released?

I've lost count, but it has to be close to the minimum.

I know what you mean, I've been in a rut all year. Except for the April contest, I've posted only one new level, and that was back in February. :frusty I'm almost tempted to remake some of my old levels.

Three new levels, all fairly small and simple. One of them could just as easily have been made in Subterra 1, but I made it in Subterra 2 because it was already open.

Eep, I don't think Escape Artist (in the 2008 level pack, by Mystic) is beatable. Unless I'm missing something, you need to pass through a Munchkin, pick up boots, go back through the Munchkin, and then walk against a conveyor belt.

I just took a look at the level, and it is quite possible. As CM stated above, you can't keep the boots when you pass through the munchkin. So don't use the boots. There's another way to go up the conveyor belt. ;)

...Great. Now I need to figure out how.

I'll check if it's possible to use one of the crates. That might work...

In the meantime, here's a new level.

Well, you were right about Escape Artist, but now I'm having trouble with Fun With Lasers. I think that after going through that conveyor thing at the bottom right you should come out at the save disk, right? But I'm just looping through it over and over again... :?

Did you perhaps go into the upper teleport at the left side? You're not supposed to. I didn't know you could until after I made the level.
