I've been a bit absent so I just wanted to tell youse all what's up.
For the past couple weeks I've been spending most of my time working on a better physics based animation system. In Happy Wheels, you'll notice characters can only hold certain poses. More complicated animations such as walking, or picking yourself up, or climbing would be extremely difficult to do with box2d (the physics engine used by Happy Wheels) alone. With this additional system, assuming I figure it all out, it would be possible to have complex character animations that still interact with the physics world. It's been a pain in the ass, but I've made a lot of good progress.
Most likely, I would not be adding this system into Happy Wheels. Too much would have to change with the way the current characters are built. It's possible that, when finished, I might make a mini game to illustrate what's possible (was thinking a horrifically violent version of kung-fu). Further down the line, I might want to convert everything currently in Happy Wheels to this new system and possible make it a sequel. It's all speculation right now. It all depends on how things turn out, and possibly new things I discover.
Something that would be possible with the new system would be user contributed animations. Similar to how people submit levels in Happy Wheels, an animation editor would allow people to contribute character animations that could be applied to any character.
I'm excited about figuring this out, as it would allow me to do make some really retarded stuff. I'll still be making Happy Wheels characters and random things, but currently I'd like to make some headway with this new stuff while I remain motivated.
I think that's it for now.

And the comments strive yet again, I will be finished with a new level (Prince Of Persia), the one that I've been holding off since I was helping MetallicDoom with his project. Well, I'll be working on the level. How's everyone's day so far.

im doing good, thanks for asking.

@Bosheevus,Its a vote. Just re-release your level. Voting is an opinion, not something people are forced to do, like when they rate a rate 5 level 5. You know, there is a reason behind a rating.
By Luigi Is pro on Mar. 19th, 2012 10:41PM
Indeed, the people that say "Rate 5" just want good views. But that doesn't mean you got to give up to their saying. Just rate on whatever you feel is required on what the level was based on. Rating shouldn't be forced on other people. It's just dumb. Imagine doing that when electing a president... Chaos would break loose.

I'm just happy to have a new update :D
By colonel Ford on Mar. 20th, 2012 12:17AM
Yea. People who accept what's there.^
By Bert on Mar. 20th, 2012 01:31AM
I always rate a level 0 whenever it says 'Rate 5', because they're being rating whores, most of the Top Played are back to shitty rope swings, fake glitches, and other crap again.
I rarely ever rate a level more than 1, I always am rating them 0.
Rope Swings suck anyway, so start making an original level if you want a decent rating.
Asking for a 5 star rating is against level rules, but nothing is being done about it! I know mods are busy, but deleting those levels will show they're serious about it.
But because 95% of levels beg you to rate 5, there'd be hardly any levels in Happy Wheels.
By colonel Ford on Mar. 20th, 2012 01:45AM
Whats worse than that is those "stop rate five glitches". Aren't they just as worse as the glitch levels? There so annoying.
By GrapesAndMilk on Mar. 20th, 2012 02:02AM
Hey everyone, here's my newest Happy Wheels fan art [img]http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/079/c/7/happy_wheels_by_knislupus-d4tfxrd.jpg[/img]
By Bert on Mar. 20th, 2012 02:07AM
Yeah, which also tell you to rate 5 to 'help people see it', it's really annoying!
By colonel Ford on Mar. 20th, 2012 02:36AM
Yea. Its stupid. Btw thats some good artwork there. Keep it up!
By theshywillraindeath on Mar. 20th, 2012 07:34AM

By benxrules on Mar. 20th, 2012 08:22AM
I want to see if they add a ghost replay function, which shows a character silhouette driving, completing the level, the fastest recorded time gets to be the ghost. That'd be cool, but never happen.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 20th, 2012 11:39AM
Damn right that's one shitty and pointless idea
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 20th, 2012 1:36PM
Well, I'd say there are some great new levels that came out, like "Super Mario 64" and "Pokemon Adventure."
By ACHIEVERjunior on Mar. 20th, 2012 2:27PM
I played those levels before they were cool

By D J A Y on Mar. 20th, 2012 5:48PM

By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 20th, 2012 6:15PM
Actually, Jim said he might use Nova's voices for the new character if he makes some noises for him or somefink along those lines, not an entire character based on him.
By MYMOM234 on Mar. 20th, 2012 6:20PM

By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 20th, 2012 8:32PM

By colonel Ford on Mar. 20th, 2012 10:40PM
Making a 3D level is tough work. Although I am enjoying it.
By Artist Smeargle on Mar. 20th, 2012 11:09PM
I find making the TotalJerkFace mascot ragdoll pretty enjoyable too. Just watching him fall down when you hit him.
By colonel Ford on Mar. 20th, 2012 11:46PM
In my level, I enjoy watching the ragdoll police gaurd I made fall of a mini balcony.
