What would your dream hack be?

I'm getting to the point where I'm capable of making the hack of my dreams, so I figured I'd make this thread. So, what would your dream hack be?

For me, as stupid as it may sound to most, it would be a mix between Brutal Mario, Super Mario LD, VIP 5, Scarlet Devil Mario and JUMP, with some of my own twists thrown in. The design in the hack will be better than pretty much all the hacks listed (minus JUMP for the most part), and I would port all the music for it myself. As far as the ASM goes, I'll just use ASM from Brutal Mario, VIP, other sprite packs scattered across the web, and anything I find on this site.

Tricky part is that I'm very behind when it comes to modern hacking stuff like UberASM, block insertion, and PIXI, so I'd have to learn all that stuff first, but I'm fine with that personally.
Banzai Mario World without arbitrary muncher jumps, faster respawn (like Hotline Miami fast) and actual difficulty progression (but in the levels themselves and on the overworld).

e: oh are you talking about a hack we make ourselves? idk, 10 or 11 crazy and fun levels with no hype built around them. entirely vanilla
umm... can i help you!?
If morsel, ft029, gbreeze, and worldpeace had a baby and that baby made a mario hack.

A good mix of everything. There are a bunch of hacks which do one or two things really well but end up sacrificing other aspects (i.e. a hack that is pretty to look at but boring/shittily designed, a hack that is filled with custom sprites/bosses but looks and plays very poorly, etc). I've yet to play a full hack that hits everything on the head. The closest is likely SMW2+3, though even then it's a bit on the short side.

SMWCP2 would have likely fit that bill, but you know...

True


E: in all seriousness a full length hack made by worldpeace in the style of his JUMP and JUMP half levels would be so amazing.
If there would be a full lenght hack only made by super-creative level-designers like worldpeace, morsel and gbreeze (of course there are a few more).

Tbh Banzai Mario World is my favorite Kaizo hack and i would like it even more if there weren´t "easyness-spikes" and if there were not that many scrolling levels.

But of course the best hack ever i can imagine is a finished version of my own hack :P

Agreed, even down to SMW2+3 being the closest thing, though I would also add a proper difficulty level to that, which SMWCP2 might not have for all I know.

I'm working on a hack! Check it out here.
If we're talking about what we want to make ourselves, then my current project's totally my dream tbh.

Otherwise I'd like to see a very polished, medium-length joke hack that'd genuinely make laugh out loud. That or something with lots of levels and a cool scenario, that's not afraid of using original characters or making bold moves when it comes to storytelling.
It's been over four years now, so it seems safe to say I'm still hard at work building my dream hack.

By "dream hack" I assume you mean anything regardless if we can actually do it or not.

Mine would be a hack based on exploration. Some levels would change depending on your actions, (for example, there could be a power plant in a level and if you turn it on, it would affect a machine in another level), this way, many levels would be worth revisiting and would branch in multiple paths.
Dreams are bad because setting goals for fun hobbies like this don't work. See over ambitious projects in the past on this forum. You know what I'm talking about.
What would my dream hack be? #tb{:?}

My dream hack would be Tenacious D: The Pick Of Destiny.

Please. Someone just...do that for me. 0_0
A finished Brutal Mario, were it finished circa 2008 or so. Didn't so much like the demos after that.

And of course my unfinished epic.


And of course anything that's actually fun to play.
Something that's aesthetics-based, like the levels in VLDCX.
