Hello, everyone.

Coming Soon

Info:
Plot: There have been a shortage of fire flowers and mushrooms in the Mushroom Kingdom. In hopes of helping in this state of Crisis, a young toad places fertilizer into the ground. Without his knowledge, it has been tampered with, and a special acid was placed into the fertilizer. Once the root's of the plants hit the fertilizer, they changed... for the worse. The plants began to breathe air, and sunlight wasn't the only thing they needed. The plants became carnivorous, hunting for anything but vegetables. When Mario hears of this news, he learns there is two ways to stop the plants. Try to remove all of the fertilizer, or kill the Queen of the Plants. But, when Mario learns who the Plant Queen is, he doesn't know if he has the heart to kill her.



First Post
Before I show anything, I must say, my brother tried to make many hacks. Sadly, he spent all day on them, so he would always get tired of making it. The most I will work on this hack each day is ONE HOUR. If I work any longer, I will get tired too, just like my brother.



Ultio Caltha? What is that?
Well, I used a Latin dictionary to use some words. Ultio means REVENGE, while Caltha means a PLANT. So in English, you can say the title would be Mario: Revenge of the Plant.


What plant?
You'll see. And no, it is not Petey Pirahna.

Are you going to keep talking, or are you going to show us screen shots?
Fine, I will shut up. I only have one screen shot right now, and that is the graphics for the first world. I only have the general layout for the design of the foreground done. I still need to add little details and such.



Um, yeah. That is all I have for now. But you can comment on how they are, and what to do to improve it.


Anything else you can tell us?
Ehm, if you have questions, then I can answer them.

I'll give you my petey piranha if you want it. otherwwise fg looks terrible. try a better palette.

--------------------



The FG itself isn't too bad, but the pallete is horrid. And Ixtab, he said the plant ISN'T Petey Pirahna.

Isn't Petey Pirahna from Super Mario Sunshine?

--------------------

Who knows when I'll have
something to put here.

:o mmm a tip,.. use cutom palette for the BG

HEY! check my files, and download my GFX! :)

it doesn't matter what his plant is, i just wanted to lend a hand to him

--------------------

@Ixtab Thanks for the offer, but let me just say... I am using only "real" plants.


@Rabees Thanks, but which part of the palette is awful. The green? The gray? The brown?

@Jack Blue

"Fine, I will shut up. I only have one screen shot right now, and that is the graphics for the first world. I only have the general layout for the design of the foreground done. I still need to add little details and such." - Me

I only have the foreground done. Once I finish that, I will be working on a background.


EDIT: Which one is better so far?


1.


OR


2?



I probably still have to improve them, and I am sorry they are BMP. Still, which is better? 1, 2, or original?

I don't see what's wrong with one solid color, which would be the best. But if I had to choose one, I'd choose the second.


The pallete change is too abrupt. Make the colors "blend" together better. Like instead of going dark brown straight to light brown, gradually make the dark brown turn lighter. But I agree with 2technogeeks, number 2 would be better (if I had to choose).

--------------------

Who knows when I'll have
something to put here.

I would make it one solid color.... but, the lighter 'dirt' is not really dirt. I cannot reveal what it actually is. Let's say it is what helps the bad guy in this game.

I am not sure what to do anymore. :/

if it goes with the story my advice is judge for yourself unless you want to put in spoilers :/

--------------------
REMOVED
Well, I can say the bad guy put a special 'fertilizer' deeper in the ground (aka the lighter soil) which will, do stuff to the plants. *hint hint*

ALSO!

Flowers, slopes, and roots under plants.



Should I change the flower's palette?
ALSO, notice the roots of these flowers are not in the fertilizer. Maybe that is why they are normal?

EDIT: SORRY FOR SUCKY QUALITY

Hmmm, forgive me here, but I just think that it looks a little bland. In my opinion the dirt is the bland part, maybe add a few more little dots and circles in there...

Also, the flower looks alright, but a purple stem too? I'd make the stem look like the grass.

Give Mario some love?~

I used a lot of my palette space. And guess who was retarded enough to not realize I had green grass. If I noticed it before, I would've had a green stem the whole time. Thanks. XD


This better?

UPDATE TIME!

Beginning of first level:



You can walk behind flowers, and the black spider is a blue koopa. Except it does not go into or throw objects.



PLOT: There have been a shortage of fire flowers and mushrooms in the Mushroom Kingdom. In hopes of helping in this state of Crisis, a young toad places fertilizer into the ground. Without his knowledge, it has been tampered with, and a special acid was placed into the fertilizer. Once the root's of the plants hit the fertilizer, they changed... for the worse. The plants began to breathe air, and sunlight wasn't the only thing they needed. The plants became carnivorous, hunting for anything but vegetables. When Mario hears of this news, he learns there is two ways to stop the plants. Try to remove all of the fertilizer, or kill the Queen of the Plants. But, when Mario learns who the Plant Queen is, he doesn't know if he has the heart to kill her.


Each world will be a chapter of the game. So I cannot use names like Blueberry Street or Ice Caves. I have to use multiple words..

WORLDS (or Chapters, in this case)

1.) Living Earth
2.) Swallowed Alive
3.) Pollination at the Beach
4.) Burning the Roots
5.) The Butcher in the Bog (Return to World 2)
6.) Breaking the Ice
7.) The Stench of Decay
8.) The Ceremony

SPECIAL CHAPTERS (Previews of the Next Game, Mario: Novus Genus)
1.) Sweet Nightmares
2.) Frozen Time

Its lookin' good. Great plot too. I like that "Chapters" idea as well. I'm lookin' forward to more screenshots/plot update!

Who knows when I'll have
something to put here.

Whoa, that is some major improvement right thar. My impressions went from "Maybe there ARE worse hackers than me" to "I've gotta play this thing the day it's released". Sorry if that's rude, but it's the blunt thoughts I had.

Although it's too late now, I would have voted for the 1st pic. It's more realistic, as soil is generally darker the deeper you go. But this IS the Mushroom Kingdom, after all.
I'm guessing the Plant Queen is Princess Daisy. Because, you know...

--------------------
"Lip: A Fairy's Tale" project status: Slow (Visit the project thread here!)

Yes, you could say I like Osaka.
Midna, the character is... no one anyone has heard of yet. It is not daisy or peach. Will work more when I get home. :P


And thanks Bowser's Level Designer. I love how you hated it at first. I somehow thought it was good. xD

I hereby deem this hack guilty on accounts of being interesting.
Personal advice: Try and make the plant queen a likable person, since she's not an established character. Moral dissonance in a Mario hack breaks several laws in some countries, but you should be fine.

--------------------
Court dismissed! Bring in the dancin` lobstas!


New stuff!

- Mario is climbing on a huge flower about to bloom. (AKA new vines for this world).

- Spiky things on the left (hard to see) are thorny vines. They are piranha plants. They pop out of the ground and hurt you. (looks better in game)

- This are is from a split path! (no non-linearity!)


And here are the levels for Chapter 1, Living Earth.

1. Forest Walk
2. Cliffside Entrance
3 (s). Overgrown Watchtower
4. Den of the Spiders
5. The Web
6. Spiderella

Chapter 1 is retitled to Feeling Some Arachnophobia
All chapters have a chance of being retitled when I start working on it.

Spiderella will be a boss... a Spider Queen. But, it is a little different then usual. All I can reveal. :(

I will have more screen shots on weekends, since I have more time. I hardly have time to do this, because it takes me forever to do graphics alone.
