Tip: When making your overworld, mix the terrain up! Add decorations to the overworld. Don't leave large empty grass or sea regions. As an example, angled land and multiple colors look much more interesting than square land and flat, plain colors.

Hi guys, And welcome to this thread that is about a hack that I'm currently working on. I decided to make like a sequel to the original game. The story is about the hevents that happened after bowser is defeated in the original game. And in his way, Mario will meet professor E.Gadd after defeating wart who is now teaming up with Bowser in the first castle. and here's how I progressed so far:

I've also finished the whole overworld map design just before even starting to build the levels, and here's how it looks like:

The koopalings are not present in this hack. Instead, There will be confrontations with bowser's minions in castles who are garding the elemental stars (and that's the main plot of the story), and the princess wont be kidnapped this time, but Bowser jr will appear for the first time in this hack.
I hope you'll like my hack, I will post the demo as soon as I finish the first castle level.

Hey, it seems like you're off to a nice start here. I have a couple of things to say:

1. In the second and fourth screenshots, the message box palette is messed up. The color to control this is in palette 0.

2. The background for the inside of the building seems a bit too high-contrast. It may look better in motion, but it's a bit difficult to look at, at least in screenshot form.

3. There seems to be a row of pixels above the bottom status bar in most of the screenshots. I'm not sure if it's the bottom row of tiles peeking through or what.

4. The overworld is pretty nice overall. The top orange part is nice and varied with its shapes, but as you go down it starts to become more square. Maybe try adding some curves and such. You could also add some variation to the forest on the left side of the big map. Maybe something like this?
Yeah, about the status bar, it seems that the minimalist status status bar for top and bottom always generates this tile problem in most hacks ( I don't really know if people manage to fix this problem). And for messages, it's because I didn't find places for luigi and toad's palettes, because I'm using sign block. And in level 1-5, the reason why I putted a high building is because there are collectable items, and I added a growing/shrinking pipe to reach the top of the building. Sorry for the spoil by the way.

Are Luigi and Toad blocks, then? It should be pretty easy to make a sprite version if you have room for their tiles in your SP3/SP4, and that will free up some palette space. If you're interested, I'll help you out if you shoot me a PM.

Yeah, sorry about this, but I asked you if I can use your graphics in the pm and you didn't answer me, plus, I couldn't find a better space Map with a spaceship than yours. But I'm really sorry about it.

That's not how that works. The space ship gfx are from advance wars, so no worries there but the planets are made by me. The worst thing about this is that they don't even look good. If you're going to steal gfx at least get some that look decent







Well, you know what, they look nice for me. Don't underestimate yourself man, because you had a great idea for those graphics, you should be proud of it. I really like them. And sorry again for stealing your graphics.#smw{^_^;}

MegaSonic, you need to remove these graphics from your hack, they aren't yours. Going forward you need to get concrete permission from other users before you use their resources. No reply does not equal consent. Don't do this again.
Ok, but I still need planet graphics, and I can't find them anywhere. And can I keep the spaceship graphics ?

No, you can't. Unless Luks says you can (which at this point isn't likely) then you can't use them. If you want planet graphics for your hack, request someone to make them or make them yourself.
But what if I redraw them following the same steps?

Don't get cheeky. These graphics are clearly off the table, even if you "redraw" them. Find yourself some completely different graphics that you have permission to use or draw some yourself. Those are your *only options* if you want planet graphics.

If this continues, you may see yourself banned. SMWC does not tolerate stolen resources.
That's the problem, I don't know how to draw good graphics. I drew peach's castle in the town/rest level, but I don't think it's very good. It kinda look like a toy castle.

You have to learn how like anyone else would. There’s no easy or quick solution here, if you want planet graphics, put in the work.
Is there a place where I can learn it from ? Like a tutorial video ?

I don’t know about videos but you can check out our Tutorials forum. If you have any further questions join the discord and people can answer questions for you and give feedback.
Ok, thanks and sorry for the trouble. I'll post more about the prgress of my hack later.

If you want nice planet graphics try these, they're from Ristar on Sega Genesis/Megadrive. Just a suggestion.
