Digging Out Day 1 & 2:
I have just begun creating my first custom map for SMB! I have played since the beginning on XBL, and love the game. I was so happy to hear the PC version was getting an editor. I finally bought a controller and now I'm able to play!
Here is some pics of my work in progress, my first map Digging out. I figured it would be best to make a map in each level set and see how it goes from there. I watched the tutorial video and it seems very complex the editor at first. After working with it for a little bit I was able to figure some thing out from the video and some threads around here. Let me know what you guys think of my first map how it is shaping up, feedback is def welcome as I don't want to create maps that don't have a re-playability to them. Thanks!
I'm not sure if I'm a fan of all the grey rock I added, I think there's too much going on, so I might remove some later when I work on the map again.
I've made several tracks in the editor for Trials HD, if any of you are familiar with it, and I hope some of that experience I can bring over and make some awesome maps here for SMB!
Well I'm almost done with my line! I'm not sure what I want to do in the middle yet, and needs a few more obstacles near the end. This turned out way different than what I had originally planned. Mostly because I couldn't use the lock and key in forest :/ and I wanted to have some deco on top of the player in the beginning.
For the middle, I might wind up mirroring the moving saw up. Would prob work well :) I hope to have this level finished by the weekend. I fixed the issue I was having with the grey rock, and I cleaned up that area a little bit.
Edit- I was able to add some more decoration this evening. The level is really shaping up nicely, really proud of this first level :)
Day 4 & 5:
OK! I think I finally finished this bad boy up.
After all that, the editor isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I'm looking forward to putting some little final touches and uploading this tomorrow! Not bad for a first crack at the editor I think.
Next level is going to be in the Hospital tile set.
Edit- I made some final tweaks this morning and I have officially uploaded the finished version. Hope you guys enjoy it!
