Fyrid's XCell - xcellerating right now

Welcome to the XCell!

I've taken the opportunity to remake this mod (Fyromentum) from the ground up, some new abilities and remade visuals.

"xcellcommands" - Gives a list of available commands
"abilitytoggle" - Toggle certain player abilities on or off
"springflips" - Turn on or off flipping on springs and being cool
"boostmechanic" - Disables the boost mechanic and removes the bar from the HUD
"xcellhud" - Disables the...

This pairs excellently with loading Kart's maps. I used to use XMomentum and MCSonic for that, but using this alone works way nicer. Good stuff!

not sure if this is just me due to the fact i have another mod loaded (the character you see right there, and thats it)
but the life text is off, and it always moved around when switching to different resolutions, so maybe fix the hud for more resolutions in the future, wether it be by the video flag "V_SNAPTORIGHT" or something, doesnt matter, just whatever gets the job done

other than that good mod, very fast

Okay, since reviews are disabled, I'll post a comment.

- I think the abilities don't have much synergy with the core mechanic of the boost meter. People make Pizza Tower SRB2 mods all the time for a reason, the abilities suit the core acceleration mechanics and make it fun to try to maintain through tight obstacles which SRB2 definitely has.
- The meter's sprites could use a little polish (I'd be happy to offer some assistance with that) but the layout is really good and a great starting point imho
- Characters are missing SOC_PLAYs to describe their abilities. If I picked this up on a netgame, how would I know what to do once loading it in singleplayer? How am I supposed to just know that Sonic has a drop dash, or anything of that manner?
- Boost is too easy to gain, and spin control is too intense, giving the impression this really was just designed for "boosting like a maniac" in SRB2Thicc, which, granted, I don't think that's a bad thing, but I think it could feel more substantial to play. Unless I'm missing the point and spinning is now a drift? It does work quite nicely as that, but then it breaks synergy with the drop dash.
- Boost feels great to have, though! That's the biggest thing, the boost is just a really nice dashmode implementation, and makes me wish the rest of the mod was made to suit it.

Just to suggest how to improve upon it because I know I was pretty vague
Perhaps a fastfall button, harsher boost gaining mechanics, replace the drop dash with some sort of aerial drift? I mean, thok already exists, drop dash doesn't have a purpose in this design space
