Thread: High Scores - what shall we do?

Started by: PacPac

My opinion is such that, option 1 should be implemented, but option 3 should be striven for. Definitely, adding High Scores to SRC is a good way to expand upon what's been built here. I think, for sure, securing the highscore domain would be a best case scenario, as you could functionally tie both sites together. I think, there will be resistance coming from the highscore community as the hierarchical structure of moderators is(I'm guessing) significantly more distributed here at SRC. So that's another issue to be mindful of.

Thread: Guidelines for New Categories

Started by: ch1psetch1pset

We won't take things too seriously here, but there are some general guidelines that you should keep in mind before we create your suggested category here, it should:

1) have a clear goal,
2) be clearly distinct from the main categories,
3) have a completed run with video proof.

If your run is basically a run that already exists, with just an alternate route, it may not belong here. That will be at the discretion of the mods to decide. If your run is basically any%, and it's competitive with the main category, we might ask that you submit your run there instead of creating a whole new category for it. Should anything become popular enough to warrant a separate category, we will do so, such as with Any% and Any% w/ Flight. Don't expect anything here to move to the main SRC.

Thread: Reverse Boss Order

Started by: ch1psetch1pset

So I've been working on routing RBO, and I've gotten it down to about 2h, though the route should be easily done in sub 2h. Since true RBO is possible, I figured it wouldn't make much sense to pursue the RBO without Cap B first which was how I ran it the first time.

I don't know all of the technical information about the route yet, I've kind of just been wingin' it. Also, in my latest attempt, I forgot to grab a lot of pagies and I also recommend not picking up the Nimble 2 pagie, instead get the underwater pagie in TT.

Here's the latest route with tons of mistakes:

Here's an outline of the route, I may have missed some things: https://pastebin.com/4ay7vaLw

Some notes:

-You need a total 170 quills for the whole run to buy Sonar Shot(30), Slurp Shot(30), Buddy Slam(30) and Reptile Rush(80)

-27 Pagies required to fight Planette, so the sooner you collect those, the faster you can get to her.

-It is not necessary to waste pagies on expanding Moody Maze and Cashino

-It is not necessary, nor advisable to expand Glitterglaze in your second visit as it would waste 5 pagies that you'd have to go through the palace to get prior to fighting Planette.

-You might pickup 2-3 extra pagies as you defeat the bosses. There is 1 almost unavoidable on the way to Brrreeze
