This hack, well, started over a year ago and it has been one of the best things I've done in smw (at least
from my point of view). I Start this after the failure that was my previous hack, Legend Of Darkness One, because, that hack was old and practically i was a newbie when i started it , so i decided to start a fresh hack from 0, without having to do a complicated story and
without a spectacular level design, just something that's fun and playable, just as a real mario game. only with simple, fitting, consistent graphics, also, that music has consistently,not hurt the ears, and suitable for the levels.
The hack it self has not history yet, but it will have, something simple, but filling.
And now, the screen sho'ts:
Click on the zelda for the demo of the hack
Thats all for the C3, not forget to post and give some feedback, it helps a lot, and thanks for checking this post, also, check this other post, they are cool too
I always liked your graphic style, Carld, and what you got here s really impressive. The only one I don't like is the "Awesome Grasslands" one, I think it's a bit simplistic and the shading doesn't look good, but the rest are excellent.
Also, I'm glad to know you're working on a new hack, I have seen your level design in the past and you have improved since I removed your other hack. Try to avoid big Mario discrimination though, because I know that's a frequent problem in your levels.
You just singlehandedly provided high quality custom tilesets for some of the "most hard to find quality tilesets for" level themes. I am pretty sure you just made several people's days. There's a lot to like here. Good job!
This is probably one of the best things at C3 so far. That is a lot of good graphics you have there. I'll definitely want to use some of these...I think my favorites are Another Grasslands, Fear Factoria, and Mushroom Mines. I do agree that the shading on the Awesome Grasslands one could be improved a bit, though, and I think the Water Temple could benefit from a 16x16 land pattern rather than the 8x8 one. Adding some more types of cloud platforms (such as ones that are flat on top) to the Sky Temple one might also be good.
The hack also looks pretty nice, both in terms of aesthetics and design. It would be better with custom overworld graphics, I think, but it seems like it could be pretty good from what I've seen so far. The levels look nice enough and all.
Hey hey, it seems I got somebody to vote for. I haven't seen your tilesets before, and I must say I'm really impressed with what I've seen today. Besides being damn beautiful, your tilesets seem all to keep a style consistency (the Future Airship one is kind of an exception though), and I guess a good hack could be made out of them. Keep on drawing, you're very good at it!
As for your hack, I haven't played it just yet, but I'm adding it to my list of "must-check-out" ones. Judging by the screenshoots it looks pretty interesting and varied.
Along with Jack, my favorite graphics guy. I really love how detailed they are but not to the point of being WAY too detailed, and you also made some really good tilesets for rare kinds of levels, which could make some very unique levels. Amazing work!
E: I forgot about the hack. I guess I'll check that out later
Wow, this is one of the best C3 threads of this year I mean, a lot of good graphics, a hack demo, and all the graphics are pretty good. My favorite graphics are the I-Ice R-Ruins and the mushroom mines.
Keep it up, you're very good with graphics and I hope people see this thread, cuz a lot of useful graphics are here
In seeing this in my nomination queue for featuring, I saw the first few graphics and really wasn't too impressed. Not much detail, rather flat, unusual shading on that first grass one there. Then I saw the second grassland and I really raised my eyebrow, it was actually seriously good. I thought about that contrast, and when I scrolled lower, I was really surprised, the Fear Factoria is just friggin' perfect, there's nothing more I could want from that tileset except maybe some dim light sources (CFL, incandescent, lanturn, w/e) for some extra atmosphere setting. Just perfect for Mario hacks, which tend to go for a bit more graphical detail than vanilla SMW, but not too much, you've really hit it on the spot there.
The rest are a mix of cool and eh, and the green in Future Ship was much too intense imo. I kinda liked Mushroom Mines, but after seeing Another Grasslands and Fear Factoria, it was just really hard to impress me, as I think those two are your best works here. Much of what I said for Deeke could apply to you too for improvement.
Well, i have to say is great being nominated for that, makes me happy and with more desire to hack and make graphics (making them better of course) really, really thank you people who post here and download my stuff, i really appreciate it. again thanks :3.
