The Sunnylands (K4 levelpack)

Here is where to post about the latest Commander Keen fangame or modification you've finished, a new website you've made, or another Keen-related creation.

Hey could someone please update the "level packs" section of the main Galaxy Mods page over at the Wiki? I don't see Sunnylands listed there yet :o

In Sunnylands, something pretty cool happened to me.
I'll bet that not many people noticed that, but the "No swimming" sign was in K4 written in English, yet here it was in SGA. That alone is not so exciting, but as part of some larger unreleased project, I've been working on translating just such occurences myself - and this sign looked suspiciously similiar, so much that I had to make comparison pictures. While there are tiny differences, it is incredible for me to see how two independent people could end up with basically same desing! :)

@Quillax @Shikadi-Network
ok, just tested everything and it's actually false information. the secret level just features the janitor and the eight council guys are located in regular levels... in other words, one doesn't need to find the secret level to beat the game.

ps.: Yes, please! I'd love to see a K6 levelpack designed by Quillax.
pps.: Is your name Quillax suppose to be an imperfect ananym of Ceillick?
Ah, glad to hear that's not the case! Also nice to see that another one is interested in seeing me do a Keen 6 levelpack! About my username, I never really thought about Ceilick while coming up with it, so I'd say it's more of a coincidence (and a very interesting one at that).

Thanks for posting that, Nisaba! If you can get on contact with Tesseract, then tell them that I appreciate the feedback! I'm also amused by how close my "NO DIVING" sign is to the one shown in the other screenshot.
