View Full Version : How to make your own Anti-Color platforms AFTER CY!

This is for those of you who don't have glass-sponge saved to your content or anything, like me. After extensive attempts at making anti-color tunnels and such, I had almost given up, when an idea came to me. But first, let me explain how anti-color works for those of you who don't know.

Anti-Color Platforms!? What?! Well, before CY came out, there was a way to make a "glass sponge" material that you could then edit into any shape you want. It was a grabbable glass-like material. In order to do this, one would take a piece of sponge, turn it into gas (GAS, not glass.) and then save it to your objects. Then, you'd put this object down, and de-lethalize it. Instead of getting the sponge you started with, you'd get a strange glass-like material that had all teh aspects of a sponge. Now, what does this have to do with Anti-Color platforms you ask? Well, there are a few sponges that have stitch designs around their borders. What you'd do is turn these into glass-sponge, and then put them down wherever. When you put a layer of glass in front of it, all you can see is the stitching, no platforms! GASP!

Obtaining Glass-sponge!However, with CY, this bug was fixed, and you can no longer make glass-sponge. HOWEVER, there are quite a few levels that still offer a few glass-sponge shapes as a reward! While these shapes aren't customizable with normal fashions, they're still necessary for our plan.

Making an explosion!? I'm going to sidetrack for a bit because this next step is vital for making shapes in the material. First off, take a trigger or impact explosive and put a magnetic switch right on it. That's right, just attach it right to the explosive. Now, wire it to the explosive, and put the key RIGHT next to it. Do you see what I'm getting at? Save this object to your objects, because as soon as you unpause, it's going to explode. Placing this object will create a pure explosion. No parts, just an explosion. This explosion will carve an empty shape into ANY material, but using it on anything that isn't destructible like cardboard or sponge will only carve the exact shape of the explosive, not the explosion. Now, back to the glass-sponge!

Shaping glass-sponge is still possible! Joy!While it's not the most clean cut method, it's the only one left. Now, you're going to take this explosion you just saved and put it close to a block of this glass sponge. Make it big, so you can see what you're shaping. The resulting explosion will create a dent in the glass sponge material! Woo! Mission accomplished! Now just use the explosives to carve your glass-sponge square into shapes, tunnels, people, whatever your heart desires!

Have fun with your new anti-color skills!

...Or you could use the corner editor.

I should add this: Aya's Garden of Goodies (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?29559-Garden-of-Goodies) level now has editable gas-glasses as prizes.
