"3+World" - My New Hack Reveal

Pages: « 1 »
Here is something I started early this year that I never thought I would actually get too far into. It hasn't got a name yet, but it is technically a successor to SMW. At its core, this hack is going for a mix between some of the best parts of SMB3 and SMW into one. It's going to share a non clashing graphical style among both SMW and SMB3 graphic sets. There will be gimmicks and themes from both, and the level design will share many elements from both.

This is not just a mashup though, this will be a unique hack with its own story and brand new elements as well. I might reveal the story later though, for it's not fully developed.

I am quite open to suggestion and critique. So if you think something should be changed, look better, or whatever, please don't be shy.

Screenshots

Mario will be revisiting Grassland, though of course, it will not be all the same.


Images from one of the earlier worlds Mario will explore: the Caramel Taiga.


A vertical cave with a glorious, clean looking, screen wrap system.


Doomships are a big part of this game, but not for the reason people will expect.



Bonus game room and Switch Palace. Simple.

I realize that the screens are large. Larger than I expected, so the rest are below.

Additional Screens
Coinship 1
Coinship 2
Coinship 3
Coinship 4
Coinship 5
Level Exit 1
Level Exit 2

I will do my best to answer all question, suggestions, or general concerns. Thanks SMWC! And hail System!

The screens you've shown are quite impressive! I've always had a hard time deciding if I liked SMW or SMB3 better, but now it looks like I no longer have to choose. From what I can see you've managed to blend the aspects of both games together in a way that looks professional and neat. I look forward to seeing more from this.

Oh and one question. Is Cape Mario final or are you going to change it to the Tanooki suit or Raccoon powerup?
i'm really digging the aesthetic here yoshi master. i loved your work on the smw beta remake and i think you are one of the greats at combining different mario related graphics into something sweet. i guess i just like blending graphic styles. heh :)

--------------------
Wow, you have nice visuals going on here! Level design looks neat as well, nice going!

The cape isn't necessarily final. I've been looking into ways to have both cape and raccoon. If I were to successfully do this, I would make the cape a rare powerup, and have raccoon the standard flying power.

The Hammer Bros is horrible. Ugly. Is there ANY AT ALL that has an orange face and SMW or DS-looking shell? I just hate this Hammer Bros.
I like those with a GREEN SHELLand boots, white or orange front, and a GREEN HELMET!!!
I will kill these ugly imitations!

This hack's aesthetics look awesome! I never knew SMW and SMB3's graphical styles could work so well together, but you've definitely shown that it's possible. Looking forward to see this completed!

Glad that is the one thing you decided to comment about. And with such an attitude too...

They are boomerang bros from smb3, recolored to more match smw's style of sprites. I am sorry you don't like them, but they are a large part of this hack's style.

A very ugly style too. Maybe this:

The rest is good, though I still prefer Dakress goombas.

Thanks, but I'll pass. I personally do not care a lot for modern generation Mario styles. I'm gonna stick with the old school snes Mario style, as it's the theme of my hack.

Good. ^.^ Dunno why but I like the older hammer bros too.
Also loving the GFX style in this hack. The way you mix SMW tiles to create some new stuff it quite interesting. Can't wait to see more!
I almost forgot!

I would also like to thank Teo 17 (Exit to OW Pipes) and 1524 (XY Overworld Position Blocks) for making it possible to have a SMB3 OW Pipe system! Example below:


lol Test Isle.

Just that the green body looks weird, and the black helmet looks horribly ugly. Where did you get those graphics? I'm petitioning for a rejection of those horrid pixels.

They're from SMB3. I guess you never played the game this is partially fucking based on.

On topic, I'm actually really impressed with what you've done here.
I'm legitimately looking forward to this hack, and I really hope you finish it.

Loving the OW pipes! Really that is a awesome addition to the hack.
I dunno why but I love the way test isle looks. It looks so cute for whatever reason. XD

A lot of good a petition with one signature will do you.

They're from SMB3 and they look fine. Really, they're not a lot different from a lot of sprites in the classic games. In short, you don't have to like them, and I'm done talking about it.

Yeah, the pipes are one of those little things that make a large difference to the game's feel. Also that test isle is basically a copy of the homebrewn SMW NES rom's Yoshi's Island. Just one of those things I did for fun. lol

I've always liked your hacks style, it's really interesting and great looking. Other than the graphics the hack is looking great! Really nice level design and such. The waterfall effect thing looks really cool. And I really like the switch palaces tileset, it's really cool and creative.

And oh my that's awesome! You think you could teach me how to do that? I've been wanting to do something like that for the longest time : P But if the gimmick is only for your hack and you want to release it or something when you're done with it, that's fine.

Thanks, reghrhre! I'm glad people like what they see, and there will be more to come. When the hack gets far enough along I may post videos and give it its own respective thread in the regular forums.

I don't really have the means to teach you, but all of the tools are available on the Central. If you learn how to use the XY Overworld blocks (which is a bit confusing at first), then the rest comes easy. Allow me to link you to the tools:
XY Overworld Position Blocks, Version 3
Pipe that Takes You to the Overworld

Good luck, it's pretty awesome when functional. The pipes have a few kinks, but I think they are totally worth it.
