Potential story for the game
Once again, Peach has been kidnapped. But this time she wasn't kidnapped by Bowser, or that's what Mario believes. Mario thinks that he killed Bowser in Super Mario 64. The truth is that he did, but Bowser came back as a ghost and you have to fight him in the second Bowser level (he is just Big Boo). Upon defeating him in the second castle, Mario is rewarded with a key, and he believes that he will never see Bowser again. However, in the last Bowser level, Mario meets up with Bowser again--but this time he is in his regular form due to Kamek's magic.

(This story will probably be scrapped because it's really bad.)

Thank you for reading.

You can put your screenshots in (img) tags and in a spoiler so it's easier to see them without opening another site

I linked the images because I thought that using the (img) tags would make the post too large. Also, some Internet forums want users to link their images, so I thought this forum was the same. Anyway, I fixed it now.

Well, I figured that I should post an update for the very few people who care about this project, so here it goes.

So, this project is just over a year old now. That's actually really hard to believe. Unfortunately, in that time, I got very little done. At the moment, I currently have 3 incomplete main level models, 6 incomplete side course models, and some other minor things done. That's it. If you look at the main post, though, you will notice that there are screenshots from more than 3 of the main courses. Well, that's because most of those models have now been scrapped. Specifically, I scrapped courses 1, 4, 8, and 9. So the only old courses that remain are 3, 6, and 10. By the way, I don't have a release date for this. I'm hoping to finish this by next year, but that probably won't happen.

Anyway, I'll just leave this screenshot of the secret sky level here (this is the level I'm currently working on):

This level will contain three parts, one being a sky area, which is what you see above, another will be a dark cave area, and the last one will a sky/rainforest area. Also, I will finish the UV mapping later. Finally, the only thing not made by me in that screenshot is the cloud next to the starting platform; it's actually from Super Mario Galaxy.

So, uh, yeah, that's everything I wanted to say. If you want, you can post feedback. I would really appreciate it.

Looks really nice so far. Almost looks more like it belongs in 3D land. Keep up the great work!

Hey man, don't be disheartened by the lack of responses. Your work looks pretty great! Keep it up.

Thank you for those kind words, guys. I really appreciate it. Also, here's a screenshot of a subarea in Goomba Skylands (yes, I changed the name):

I know it's not a lot to look at right now, but I am aiming to post screenshots more frequently, so you should expect screenshots like this that don't reveal a lot. It's actually a good way to show that I'm still working on the hack without spoiling too much. Oh, and that platform took forever to model, by the way.
