Totally in, I love the MP series to bits.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
This is a new hack that I am working on, and A Shroomy Tale might become a series in the future.

Anyway, screenshots:

The story for the hack: definitely not the best though.

World 1.

Smile Meadows, one of two first levels.

You can't stop me from getting the Yoshi coin ahead, Koopas!

Watch out for the Koopas on this wall.

Troopa Trouble, the next level after Smile Meadows.

You can tell why it's called that.


Pier Pressure, the first level if you go to the right.

That was close!

Buzzy Beetle Cavern, the first cave level.

Autoscrolling section.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
Okay everyone, I've got some new screenshots.


This level is called Serene Island, and it comes after Pier Pressure.

The normal exit leads to Buzzy Beetle Cavern, while the secret exit goes to the Yellow Switch Palace.


The Yellow Switch Palace. Make the jumps to the other side, and then hit the P-Switch to collect coins.

Does this new palette for Troopa Trouble look okay? Also, the secret exit in this level is another way to Buzzy Beetle Cavern.

Splash Shore, accessed from Troopa Trouble's normal exit. Not much to say about this level, but it leads to World 2.

The second half of the level. Vanilla Secret 2 inspiration.

The W2 submap. How does it look?

Pokey Problems, the first level of W2. You can probably guess who is introduced here.

Pokey isn't the only newcomer. Everyone's favourite dinosaur also appears in this level.

A small bonus area.


--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
For a vanilla hack, this looks really good! I must agree with suckhacker though on the palette.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
Only one new level, but I thought I would show it because it means W1 is done.


Mossy Stone Tower, the castle that Iggy calls home. This leads to W3, the forest (Yes, there's a split path).

This level isn't very long, just like the original Iggy's Castle. The second half, with Parakoopas and line-guided platforms.

The end-of-castle message.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
That new version looks like good use of the Chomp Rock, MP, but why does it use the original palette?

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
I made a hack called Mario's Snack Surprise which is dead now, but I actually had a demo in my filebin at one point. Did anyone download it and if so, do you still have it? If you do, I would like to have it because it would be interesting to look back on an older hack of mine.
Sorry if this is dumb thing to ask about. #smw{:|}

I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
1. I like cave, snow and desert levels, because in hacks I usually see good level design in them.

2. Like Master Lakitu said, caves can be combined with a lot of stuff.

3. In my latest hack, "A Shroomy Tale: Islands of the Stars", my plan for world themes are:

World 1: Grassland/water, but mostly grassland
World 2: Desert world.
World 3: Spooky forest.
World 4: Snowy world.
World 5: Cave/lava.
World 6: Mountain/Sky.
World 7: Islands/water.
World 8: Factory.
World S: W1-7 mashup.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
That looks awesome, I really like how you took advantage of the fact that yellow koopas jump when they're near a shell, that puzzle was cool! And the music fits, in my opinion.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
I am going to work on W2 and W3 at the same time. Also, the other world themes for this hack will be:
W4: Snow
W5: Lava cave
W6: Mountain and sky
W7: Water and islands
W8: Factory
WS: Everything


Welcoming Woods, the first level in W3. The title is a bit of a lie - watch out for shell-kicking Koopas!

Part of a small bonus area.

There has GOT to be something in that pipe.


Memorial Manor, the first ghost house.

This level was heavily inspired by Rotary Room in Aether: The Paramount Omnibus.

The main part is a maze of rooms, and the doors you have to go in are indicated by the lights in the courtyard. The secret exit and two Yoshi Coins are hidden in here.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
Two new levels done, well, three actually!

One is called Quicksand Wasteland, which is the second level of W2, but I haven't actually gotten the quicksand to work, and I probably won't post any screenshots on it until I get it working.


Perplexing Pyramid, the third level of W2.

A puzzle, where you press a P-Switch, enter the correct door which leads to the springboard, and then use them both. Will this be too much item babysitting, though?



Outside the pyramid, near the end.

Mole Hole Madness, the fourth level in W2 which introduces Monty Moles.

When there is a hole that was not created directly by a Monty Mole, you can probably crawl into it.


Woah, that's a lot of moles!

Also, I have decided that W8 will not be a factory, it will be the Mushroom Kingdom.

EDIT: Because I didn't want to double-post.


Mossblock Mayhem, the second level of W3.


Underwater bonus part.

The green switch palace, accessed by the secret exit in Perplexing Pyramid. Hit a P-Switch and then bounce on the note blocks.

Ruin Runner Rascals, the fifth level of W2 and the final one before the castle. I do admit it's a little flat, but it is relatively short.

Look out!

Bangin' Battlefield, a secret level in W2 unlocked by the Mole Hole Madness secret exit. This level introduces Bob-ombs.

A rocky area.

Bullet Bills are also here.

Quicksand Wasteland. Even though the quicksand custom blocks aren't working, I can still post screenshots of this level. The dark yellow ground is the quicksand.



--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
If you've read my last post already, I edited it expecting it to bump it back up. so read the edit if you haven't.


Deep Sinking Swamp, the third level in W3. The secret exit leads to the blue switch palace.



The second section.

Blue Switch Palace. It's basically just a small autoscrolling challenge. This part in particular is much easier with a cape.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
Bad news everybody - I lost this hack. My dad was an idiot and decided to reboot the computer without asking me how to do it, or if he could do it in the first place. I would like this thread locked.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
A while ago, I made a thread on my hack named "A Shroomy Tale: Islands of the Stars". I lost the hack because of a reboot. Well, something else stupid happened.

My laptop charger was going weird, and it didn't work all of the time. Near the beginning of this week, the charger broke completely, so I couldn't make progress on this hack until today. I got a new charger today. I'm on my half-term break, so I have quite a bit of free time.

Enough of that, though, let's get to the screenshots.


The title screen. Please ignore the unchanged demo level, as I usually don't make the demo level until I make the level that it's going to be a demo of.

The intro level.

World 1 submap. The theme is Grassland/Seaside.

1-1 Bladegrass Bushes


Up or down, Mario? It's your choice.

A small underground section.

Classic shell course.

Hey, 1UPdudes, this looks pretty darn cool! I like how the terrain looks like a massive version of the original in the first two levels, and I like the idea of boat-jumping in the water level. Mini-bosses in each level is a good idea, however you should try to avoid repeat battles as much as possible.

--------------------
I don't even know what I'm actually doing anymore... will I ever finish a hack?
Thanks for the feedback, everyone! Fixed a few things by your requests:


Made the dirt a little darker, and fixed the grammar error.

Darker dirt and decoration.

Put a no Yoshi intro in every single level. That'll work.

The first level was okay for a first level, but a few problems:

In the underground section, I see cutoff where the wall meets the bridge. Try putting just a normal wall block instead of a corner.

The ground palette looks weird, it just feels like it has no gradient.

And at the end, where the ground comes slightly higher, you should use corner tiles there, because it looks strange having a hill with grass underneath it.

The level is quite flat, try spicing up the terrain with slopes and drops and decorations.

Level 2:

Again, the palette is strange.

At the beginning of the cave, where the wall meets a ground, use a corner tile.

After the midpoint, you used a ground-dwelling mole, and not a ledge-dwelling one.

At the end, you did the same thing you did in Level 1.

The level is less flat than the first one, which is good.

Level 3:

This time, the background palette isn't right, either.

When the first two water pools touch the land, there is some slight cutoff by the corner, where there is no water on the corner, but to the left/right of it, there is. Try moving the water down.

On the climbing fence, it looks off at the gap between the note blocks.

Other than that, you did a good job considering those are your first three levels! I hope I didn't come off as a jerk!

Like this. See how the grass gets slightly darker as it hits the dirt? And how the dirt has small bright spots? That's what I mean.
