Default Could anyone explain the purpose of invisible walls in this game?

How come that almost everyone collides with an invisible wall at some point. Except those who want to exploit the level can easily bypass them. Does that mean that invisible walls do the exact opposite job of what they are usually meant for?

I think they're there for the purpose of stopping players from going out of bounds and noticing how small the levels are, that most of the details are actually to give the illusion of grandeur. Exploitable or not, that doesn't change their function. They've still failed, though.

Btw if you play the SS2 Mod Overdose, you have a comparison of the 2nd Level of SS2 a version with less invisble walls with the Original 2nd Level.

To replay the original SS2 2nd level, you have to remove z_Overdose!.gro file

Dk's InSamnity! 2 also removes invisible walls.

Because escaping invisible walls and other obstacles the game puts in your way is an exciting challenge.

SS3 has them too, but croteam got lazy and is much more exploitable, my levels have them too.

Why did Croteam get lazy? And how would you know that?

I don't. It was just a wild guess
