Well. I made this fix tileset just for something to do. Again thanks for trolobite for the mask.

Glitches: the textured background only works in 16 bit. I really have no clue how to fix this as I’ve tried everything. This is an exact rip of the pallet from the originals so i don’t know. If someone can fix this for me, please PM me or send me an email.

Enjoy! Reviews are appreciated.

Ok, so I helped create this, and I guess I can’t rate it. But I would like to leave a comment.

To be entirely honest, when I first learned what sonicnathan was trying to do, I had no idea why. I never thought of Colonius as a particularly broken set. I rarely used it, but didn’t notice mask problems or anything that seemed to be in need of a change. The levels I had played with it seemed perfectly good.

However, as I started to make the mask, and really had to pay attention to the details, I understood the fix. I found a couple of random problems in masks, such as inconsistencies in the benches, and a section of the background that was auto-masked (I’m not sure why it was masked at all). Also, when I would look for a specific tile so I could find exactly what the mask was supposed to be like, they were in really random places. The fixed tileset would be way easier to find tiles in and build levels from.

Therefore, I’d definitely recommend a download if I was allowed to.

PS, I don’t think I deserve too much credit for this. Sonicnathan was the genius behind the ideas, and all I did was some copy/pasting for the tileset.

Well, I promised a review, so here is a review!
At first glance, Sonicnathan1’s fixup of the Colonius tileset appears to be simply a rearrangment of the tiles, along with some clever masking speeches. And after examining it myself, I have come to the conclusion that…….that’s all it really is. Not to offend SN, who happens to be a chum of mine. I do have to admit, though, it IS a good fix. The tiles have been set in a much more accessible and more friendly way [the tileset was pure crud before in terms of organization], which is good. Colors are okay, not really any noticeable bugs, it looks pretty good.l However, there really aren’t any fluff tiles in this set, like custom eyecandy and the like, which saddens me, considering the enormous amount of possibilities for this there are. Still, it is a great fixuppage of the set, and I will give it a 5.3 and a DL rec, if just because it’s a promising reconstruction of a nice set. Gj!

This is a good fix of the Colon tilesets.
Everything is re-arranged so that you can find the tiles more easily.
However, it could probably do with a Keyhole block and the V & H-Poles.
One noticable thing about this set is that the flames can now be used in the Day version.
If you find Colon hard to use, I recommend getting this tileset.
I did help out with this though, so it’s probably best that I don’t rate this.
Still, this is a good fix of the original Colon sets which were messy in terms of how the tiles were arranged.

Yeah well it hardly matters. The whole idea was to just rearrange it made it easier to use as I made 2 levels with colonial, and it was hell. Also it hardly matters for added tiles, I only had like 12 more tiles I could add anyway as I was on the tileset limit. :)

Hey PT32. Since this is so helpful why didn’t you rate it 10 or any other greater rate than 5.3?? I say that every guy on j2o interessed to make a colonius level should get this thing. It rearranged the ornamental bircks that were such a drag and it has some other stuff that helps a lot. I think it deserves a 7 to 8 so I give 7.7. Haha, “7.7” looks like a face of an emo guy crying.
