As much as I feel I should be doing it myself, somebody should really make articles here for DMSC, SRB2JTE (linking to the bigger one), Shuffle's Zelda mod, SPmoves, MKraces5, and SASRB2. I'm leaving for a one week vacation in yet a few days. --Spazzo 10:22, 17 December 2006 (PST)

And yet, no one wants to know about Chaotic Darkness? That's okay, I guess only mods that can be recognized at all are worth going in here. =P --JJames19119 13:06, 18 December 2006 (PST)

  • Yeah, months later, this is in big need of updating. A bit more notable mods have surfaced such as the ones listed above by our dear Spazzo :), TBE (lolselfadvertisement), Chaotic Darkness (although it's not appreciated, it's much better than the mediocrity of the majority of the new mods on the forums), maybe Golden Ruins too. SRB2 Next-gen could go in a "discontinued" list since only the character wad is being worked on now. What do you think? :) Callum 01:06, 15 June 2007 (PDT)

Some Mods like Jman kart don't deserve to be here. Each character has only 5 sprites, jump has been removed, the only movement is rolling, and all the levels need "level desighn 101." On Edge 19:14, 6 August 2007 (PDT)


Page Delete

I've been thinking that this page is rather ridiculous. If a mod is noteworthy, why doesn't it simply have a page for itself? I personally think this page is rather useless. I'd like to delete it. Arguments? ~DarkWarrior

Why don't we change it to a category? --71.178.50.48 08:24, 8 August 2007 (PDT) (Kaysakado)

That's not a bad idea. Actually, that should be done anyways. Regardless of whether or not this page is here. So, that will be done. ~DarkWarrior

It'd be better if the Editing part was removed, to avoid countless, moronic mods. ~Anony

Seconded. At the moment, I'm ready to tear down Super Sonic 64 for the crap that it is. If Super Sonic 64 is up on here, I shudder at the thought of all these other mods that could've gotten up here. Category sounds nice as well. If you can't cough up enough info to have your own page, then you really shouldn't have one. This page just feels like free advertising. -BZ4 09:36, 11 August 2007 (PDT)

Well, SS64 is getting better now that its moved into the executable phase. They have a ground pound now, and other stuff that I don't know about. --Kaysakado 16:14, 11 August 2007 (PDT)

The problem with this deletion is the same problem wikipedia faces all the time. It's completely loaded with meat puppets, so the vote is somewhat biased. I'd say that we strip the mods article of all mods, and just have it discuss what a mod is. Each mod can then have its own page. --Spazzo 19:15, 13 August 2007 (PDT)

The problem is that someone would have to actually write the page. Also, I believe there already is such an article lost somewhere around here. I'd need to do a little digging for that...But anyways, for now, I really don't see a better alternative to this than deletion. ~DarkWarrior

Bravo, gang. I believe we all accidentally ran into the reason why the Wiki is lackluster: "The problem is that someone would have to actually write the page." If you ever wondered why people don't contribute to the Wiki, that is the most blunt way I've seen it put.

I'm sorry. Anyways, I'm thinking of this: mods can have their own pages on the Wiki, and then this page can serve as a sort of "list of mod pages", like the Levels page. In other words, this page would only consist of mods that have their own pages here. Also, the notability factor of each mod on here will be determined as normal -- if it's notable, no one will complain. If it's not notable, someone will discuss that issue on the talk page and if the mod gets deleted as a result, it'll be wiped off this page, too. --Digiku 17:09, 14 August 2007 (PDT)

While we're here, why don't we kill off Level Pack too? It's pretty much the same idea, just with less stuff. -BZ4 08:47, 15 August 2007 (PDT)


"The problem is that someone would have to actually write the page." Actually, I could probably do that. The thing why it's difficult is because it takes reasoning. I wrote most of the CTF guide pages, of course, so it would be pretty easy for me. :\
I think this page could both explain what a mod is, and list all of them. I'll build up my idea structure less than six hours from now.

EDIT: Fine, ten hours from now. ~ Blue Warrior 20:22, 15 August 2007 (PDT)


Well, that was a bit easier than I thought. Okay, how does this look? It certainly needs some work, but that's the outline. ~ Blue Warrior 05:49, 16 August 2007 (PDT)

That's a good start. I really do advocate the idea, though, that mods and related items must have their own pages before being stuck on that page. Again, the notability factor is determined on the case by itself. Also, as is the case with Botanic Serenity, the notability factor can be more precisely determined that way, rather than the "three levels" guideline. The Mods page should really just be a list of other articles. --Digiku 16:41, 20 August 2007 (PDT)

SRB2Riders

Could a Mod add {{Main|SRB2Riders|SRB2 Riders|}} under SRB2Riders. --Turtle Man 14:49, 26 September 2007 (PDT)

Until I can come up with a suitable replacement for the ex-mods page, I'd prefer nothing be added to it. It was just a trash section advertising many canned/old/totally unused mods, with only a few good ones listed. ~DarkWarrior
