this isnt turning out too well, the download is gone
Heck the developer was gone for like 7+ years. I don't know what happened to the download.

SMBX: ShortStar's World Review

I'll probably just keep the rust and move on.

SMBX: ShortStar's World Review

You're telling me. I made this thing almost 7 years ago.

In retrospect yes I should have made a simpler first world / land. That would probably be easier than splitting levels. I have forgotten everything about how to make SMBX levels. The funny thing is I may have to go back and learn from my tutorial videos from 8 years ago. Now that's a bit mind blowing.

SMBX: ShortStar's World Review

Its been a while since I've been here. I'll have to play it again and see if I agree with your review since I don't even remember making it at all. Perhaps I could break up the entire game, turn it into 4 worlds rather than 2 and take out enemies.

Looking to hire game maker

Go with RPG Maker its easy enough to get a long game finished in a minimal amount of development time. Long games are usually depend on battles and how long those take, unless you have some grand novel like story.

It sounds like an exciting idea. I wish you luck. He's a lucky guy! <3

I would throw my hat in the ring, but I have an awful track record of finishing games, but according to Steam, I've got a few thousand hours in RPG Maker VX Ace.

With you being artistic, you could also do a visual novel where its text only with your art. I'm just throwing that idea out there.

I kinda thought this was done as is.

Make a Map!

I think someone took from the shortstar mapping tutorial.

Beginners Unite! Lets make a game!

How is the game going?

[Poll] I got an idea for the next SMBX community game!

I remember playing Super Mario Land 2 every day of every weekend. Completing it in a day each time. I remember making my own Super Mario Land 2 hack years ago. I could only do the levels back then.

Make a Map!

I've been working on a rendering of that area too, so i was a bit put out to see this at first. I'd say you did a pretty good job, but would love to see some more plants and grass and maybe a bit more flair. Right now you've hit all of the basics but there's nothing particularly interesting about it, just basic island stuff.

I'd say the entire map is far more interesting than 99% of other RTP towns. A basic island wouldn't have multi-teirs or docks over an ocean. I'll add more plants and grass somewhere and find places to fit more flair.

It looks great. I love the whole rafting part, not to mention the stilts on their own raft parts. Could do with a little shift-mapping around the high cliff parts (where there'd be overlap) and the ladders need the railing underneath them (I'll whip up a tile that you can bung in for that) but overall it looks just like it's described.
It's not trying to be too fancy, but it fits the description quite well and gives the overall tropical feel pretty well. Good job! d(^.^)b



Don't worry, BT, there's a lot more maps that need doing.

Thanks for the tiles. I'll add them soon.

OK. But I'd love to see a few more details, such as strings of fish and stuff. *Shrugs* Liberty, when you populate it, consider adding a few wandering tortoises, since the place's name seems to be a portmanteau of "tortuga" and "torture." It would be nice to have the name be a reference somehow.(In fact my own attempt at the island gave it a turtle-like shape.)

I was told RTP.

Hold on a sec. Perilswine Traders is still on the list? I swear, I handed in maps for that.
Whooops! Okay, fixed it, it's on the Completed list.

Right; ^_^; *begins cooking up ideas for the Labyrinth of madness* hmm, giant ice cream cones, an entrance that teleports you to a five-way point right in the center of the maze- so far so good.

Be clear, please. Are you claiming the Labyrinth of Madness as a map that you're going to make?
Um it's a map I'm considering claiming; it's not final.

Looks at Labyrinth of Madness... Time to make another pretty basic map. I have what I started on for it. Incomplete, because it was a grid of 9x9x9 that would shift. Too ambitious so it was never complete back in March.
