Tip: Layer 3 backgrounds and tides disappear when you hit a message box, so plan your level around that. For example, you can add a sublevel without layer 3 at the start/midpoint, and include your message there.Not logged in.

Unfortunately, there are still a lot of things to fix in this hack. Please note that most of the errors are global, so you'll really have to start looking for them from the beginning and examine all of the levels.

Level Design

Unfortunately, level design is a very-very weak point of your hack. Most of the levels were made of a wide ground only, without any special objects, slopes etc. Therefore the hack became boring really quickly, I recommend you to redesign most of your levels, at least a bit.



You totally shouldn't leave such empty and bland places in your levels.

Cutoff



Not a big deal, but there's cutoff at the right part of the vertical pipe (the rope).



Not really your fault, but the wall is cutoff.



Gray block + pipe.



Gray block + water.



Gray (it looks really bad) lava + pipes.

Palette errors

There were a lot. After the first castle, almost all levels had really bad palettes.



No offense, but this submap looks horrible. The palettes should be fixed, and there's an incredibly big amount of cutoff on the edges.




These are bad level palettes, for example. Use similar colors to SMW's original colors.



Also, I think the 'water' palette could be much better here.

Other



Not a big deal, but the Yoshi footprints would look better with a transparent background.



This Switch Palace was really-really similar to an original Switch Palace from SMW. I recommend you to start your levels from scratch, use Ctrl+Del to delete all objects and sprites in a level.



There should be enough space for Mario to make the ending sequence.



Oh and yeah, no stacked or floating Munchers.



The entrance FG/BG position is too high here. This picture might help.

-------

I could continue listing all the problems in your hack, but it wouldn't make sense since they are very similar to the above ones. You should know by yourself what is bad and not allowed from now.
Please don't fix only the above errors your hack (this is a typical mistake). Really, open your levels one-by-one and look for similar errors (you could also learn from older hack removal logs).

One important thing: the screenshots you uploaded weren't proper. Read the F.A.Q. to learn how to make proper screenshots.

Finally, I recommend you the followings:
Hack Name: Super CCSU World
Author: Pethanct01
Description: This hack is a parody of the college campus, Central Connecticut State University. The plot is not based on anything true and is completely fictional. The overworld is what CCSU looks like if the CCSU campus were turned into Super Mario World. Do not tell me that the pallette scheme is off and is not right. To say that my colors are incorrect is subjective and the colors you like are based on personal preference. The pallette colors are correct and are based on what the campus actually looks like, other than that I would encourage you to enjoy the hack and have fun playing it. The game should be based on game play so I encourage you to have fun playing this game. The early levels are easier, and as you progress, the levels will become difficult. Good luck getting to the end of the game.
A newer version was submitted.

Reason

Seems like another new version was submitted today.

 
Glad to see some good improvement on this hack. However, you still need to fix a few things before acceptation - mainly the overworld.







Sorry, but these kind of maps won't do it. I see you were trying to be a bit more unique with those building-looking hills and houses, but the bad palettes, all the cutoff and the lack of layer 2 events make them really unenjoyable. Look at other hacks, ask for suggestions in the hacking forums.

And as I already mentioned in the first removal log: the bland level design.



Really, you shouldn't leave totally empty places like this.

Other level problems:



The Arch Ledge palette isn't the best here.





I can go "into" the slanted pipe. Just block the way like SMW did. I've found this mistake a couple of times in the hack (especially the later levels).



Typical error, but when I go into a pipe..



..I should come out of a pipe.





Candle sprite (sprite E6) is missing from the background.



I think giving a 3UP Moon just for beating a normal level (okay, it's in the final world, but still) is a bit too much.





Just some minor cutoff: ground + spikes, ground + gray blocks.



It seems you forgot that the player can actually look "behind" the pipe here.

The screenshot you uploaded was still not proper. I'm quoting myself here:

Really, you don't have to resize, crop or do anything with the image, just upload it as the emulator takes it.


That's it, I guess. Once again, the overworld is the only bigger problem left, the levels should be easier to fix (although, you really should add some more variation to some levels). Either way, good luck!
NAME: Super CCSU World

DESCRIPTION: I would encourage you to enjoy the game and if you have any problem, feel free to contact me and I will get back to you ASAP. I included a readme in the file in case you want something to read. Please enjoy the hack.


DENIED!


Some letters look kinda weird, the CC for instance. Also, the W from World has a srange black hook on it.
On a different but related note, providing one screenshot of the Title Screen only is not enough and can get your hack removed instantly.


Asuming you are a student, I thought you could do better than that. #w{:s}


Whenever I have the chance to get 1-ups (especially with stars), I get way too many.


This map still looks horrible. I cannot imagine your university looks like this because then it would easily be the most ugly place ever. Like what's the blue squares supposed to be? Water?? Change the decorations and don't use the \ -blocks for everything. And change the
palette, it looks like puke. Honestly. Your university does not look like this, good luck proving me otherwise.


Minor here, but bad lava palette. Use some nicer colors.


Easy moony. The FG palette could be improved a bit.


Meh.. it's not that bad but it doesn't look right either.


The pipe is cutoff though. Plus, there's a wrong corner tile.


Bad FG palette.


Unnecessary bunch of 1-ups.


Last fortress has a glitched note blocks' animation.


...


EDIT: I completely forgot to mention there is a lot of sprite lagg in many levels. Consider applying the Fast ROM Patch which can be found in our Patches section!



The strangest about this hack was that I never GOT the feeling that I am in some sort of a university or whatever, fighting against peeps. It was just a Mario game with some messages who want to convince me otherwise but it didn't work out at all. Maybe you should use ExGFX!

The level design was very linear, quite boring as a result. Try to add more variety, use different ways and stuff to explore.

Good luck..

I play Pokemon Red glitchless speedruns occasionally. Check out my twitch!

Exits done: 45, Overworld: 85%
Play through Taomb Demo 3
Well, Taomb may have finally died. Thanks guys. Staff should revamp the whole rating system and start modding the comments again. It's an absolute calamity and has never been this bad before.
