Katerpie and I are working on this level, inspired by Star Wars of course!

Only a few screenshots right now, since the tileset and level is still obviously a WIP, but here's what we got so far:







Mainly I wanted to replicate the iconic wall lights, and I'm quite happy with the result. The Koopas are white because they're now Imperial Stormtroopers, or Stormkoopas if you want to sit here and make cringeworthy puns.
I think there could be more contrast between foreground and background. Right now they kinda blend together.
"Oh, a level based on Star Wars. I bet it's just a--- WHOA, THIS LOOKS LIKE A DEATH STAR?!"

I love how much detail is in the graphics so far. If the Trash Compactor is here too, my inner fanboy will be a joyous madman.

Yes it will have a trash compactor ;)
I expect all of you to be literally crushed by the compactor at some point ;)

Alright, taken in mind.
Will it have Imperial March as a theme?

Legacy ports zip (now that those went down because Dropbox)
Yo, this looks pretty good. Nice to see you guys teaming up, Katerpie is great at level design and I can already see the aesthetics look good. There's sooo many things you can do with star wars though. I think the whole palette is too light though, the death star is usually darker?

I agree with you. We'll find a way to make the entire palette darker as I also discussed with Eevee.
I like the look of this so far! Especially the grating on the wall.

As someone who has loved Star Wars ever seeing the prequels as a child, I love the idea of someone making a Star Wars-themed level. And, you're doing a great job with it.

Vanilla Twist!
Imperial March better be included

I second this.

The level looks really promising. I agree about the background blending too much with the foreground as well the brightness. Don't make it too dark, though. And be sure to try using some transparency (CGADSUB/color math) on some room, I think you guys can make something pretty interesting with it. Looking forward for more.

If Stormkoopas are bad, how's Storm Koopa Paratroopas

Pretty interesting idea for a theme, and I'm surprised how well you're able to pull it off here. Looks good so far!
We made some changes to the palettes as some of you have suggested: here are some new screenshots.







Here's what I had planned for the ending of the level:

Rather than use a goal tape, we can have Mario step inside the Millennium Falcon here where he will hit a hidden goal sphere. Not sure if I want to go through this one yet though lol (we'll likely also add layer 3 stars to this area)

Hope you like so far :>
Looking amazing, Eevee! I can't wait to see how this level plays out!
Come help save Super Mario World Central Production 2 here!
Yeah, the FG/BG brightness combination looks pretty balanced compared to the first screenshots. Probably you should go more crazy on the sprite tilesets though, you apparently only messed with the sprite palette. Try finding some obscure graphics from other tilesets, FG or even mode 7, you may find something that fits well with Star Wars (or WTF Wars) ;)
