Welcome to the thread for something I like to call my 'rubber band ball hack'. As of 2 seconds ago I'm sure most of you are wondering what I mean by 'rubber band ball hack'. Let me explain. When one makes a rubber band ball (Google it if you're even more confused), one tends to add to it when they are bored. There is no strategic plan, schedule, or pattern to these additions. They're just added as and when a person feels like it. I'm adopting a similar technique in hacking. I'll add to this hack whenever I feel like doing so.

----------

Plot

The hack takes place approximately a year after the events of Super Mario Galaxy. One day, Mario recieves a letter from Peach requesting that he come to the castle. Mario arrives to find out that trouble is afoot. Peach tells Mario of the Starhold. After the events of Super Mario Galaxy, the power stars were mostly reborn and returned to a primative state where they were not of enough intelligence to distribute star power fairly.

The Starhold is a machine orbiting around the Earth built to solve this problem. It absorbs the energy from the power stars and distributes it as is needed. Peach tells Mario that the Starhold was taken over by a great evil who is intercepting the star power.

Peach requests that Mario heads to Skypass and use the launch star there to go to the Starhold and make everything normal again. But sometimes things are easier said than done...

Wow, that title screen is awesome! Nothing more to say about it.

For the level... level design, graphics and theme are very interesting. I personally don't like the music, but that's just my opinion. Great start! Keep up the good work.
This is some really awesome stuff! I'll be following this.

Space for rent.
That's a very nice hack. So far it looks pretty cool.
Aha! So that's what that guy was for! Everything looks nice so far, so if you don't mind, I'm gonna go ahead and put that nice looking userbar in my sig.
Currently balancing work and hobbies. Also I've got a job now.

Ah, I remember seeing that title screen in the SS&V thread some time ago.
As for the level, I'm loving the graphics and the design.

I'll add the support bar to my bio.
I really like everything you've done with this so far and I can't wait to see more. Which reminds me, I need to do some work on my own hack, haven't done that for a while~

Userbar added.

You're off to a great start with this. I love the title screen, and that level looks great. Something about your level design reminds me of the 3D Mario games, which is interesting. I can't wait to see more of this.

[?] Miscellaneous Helpful Hints
If I moderated your hack, there was apparently a 90 percent chance it was rejected.
So I've been touching up on the first room of Ember Caverns a little bit more. Opinions?

Looks pretty good to me! The enemy palette seems to be more appropriate for the level's palette now.

--------------------
Willing to take requests for playtesting and also PERHAPS work on character graphics.
This hack is looking nice so far. I love your compositions too. ;D
I used to use this site a lot back in like, 2011. Hopefully you don't remember me.
This seems pretty interesting. First off, the title screen is epic [insert applause here]. Also I like your plot.

Then from what I can see your level desing is pretty good, just make sure not to have too many podoboos or else, you know, they'll disappear. Also I like how you replaced the midway point.
Looking good, marioVSshadow. I liked the heads-up display and the Youtube video of Ember Caverns.

Soon I will subscribe to you on Youtube for updates on your videos of your levels in progress. I'm WarMachineSMF there.

Your layout has been removed...NOT! :D
So my internet went down earlier and out of bordem, I started drawing a couple of original enemies.

Coon Ball Jr is a small sprite which will bounce in the air and use it's raccoon tail to hover towards you. One stomp to the head and it dissapears in a puff of smoke. Not a tough enemy.

Coon Ball Sr is the big daddy of the Coon Balls. He can jump much higher than regular Coon Ball Jrs, can fire CBJs out of his mouth, and takes a number of stops to the head before he goes down.

I need to get someone to program the sprites (or look into it myself at the ASM workshop) but I can show off the Coon Ball graphics. I'll probably do some work on Srs graphics.

Looks good, MVS. The tail of the big one though, could be a little lesst 'stiff' (if you get what I mean).

Also, what are CBJs?

I could've known :P.
Made a basic outline for the level 0/100 bonus game

Outline for my hack's bonus game. It's going to be an SMB3 battle mode throwback like you couldn't tell. Eventually the top pipes will spawn Spinys, Bob-ombs, moving coins, and 1ups randomly. They will vanish through the bottom pipes. The gimmick is, you can play the bonus game till the 50 second timer runs out or you get hit by an enemy (either one of these happening will simply end the game rather than harm Mario).

Since it's currently not in action, I accessed it through my obligitary level 104

I suggest you use CBS as the boss for World 1 of this hack.

Why are you looking down here?
