Quick-E-Links:
Hello, everybody. Today, I present to you my SM64 ROM hack, Super Mario: Power Star Expedition. Information and screenshots can be found below.

Features
- 10 brand new main courses and 9 brand new secret courses;
- new textures (from MKWii, NSMBW, SMG2, etc.);
- new music;
- brand new hub world; and
- new backgrounds.

Progress
Main courses: 0/10 <- Three models are pretty close to completion, though.
Secret courses: 0/9
Music: ~5%

Backgrounds: ~60% <- I didn't make any backgrounds, I just simply resized and imported the ones that I found.

- Bowser's Spooky Castle <- This is the second Bowser level.

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 rewared 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.)

Final notes and help

I started making this hack on September 17th, 2016. As you can clearly tell I haven't made much progress in that time span. This is because of school and sometimes--but not very often--my lack of motivation. I really hope that I can complete this hack and make it as fun to play as possible. Also, I need help with music. I can obtain some of the .m64 files from SMWCentral, but not all of them. So if anybody is interested in helping, please send a PM to me with examples of your work. And before anyone asks, that is the only thing I need help with. Anyway, I think I covered everything. Thank you for reading.

Oh, and by the way, don't forget to give me some feedback. If a lot of people don't like my 3D modeling, then I might restart since this hack is in its early stages.

Note: I copied and pasted this thread from my thread of this hack on Kuribo64.

Looks awesome! I'd perhaps use some spoiler tags, though.

The course layouts, from what I can see, look great. I could help with some story details, if you'd like.

Thank you! I guess I should put the pictures in spoilers.

Also, I would appreciate some help with the story (although I don't really care about it that much).

Nice job with the models! Will this be a full rom or a patch? It doesn't matter much to me, but just curious.

Thank you! It will probably be a ROM instead of a patch. I don't want people to have to go through the trouble of patching it themselves.

Also, thank you, Fruit Smasher!

Please give me some feedback. I would really appreciate it.

Also, I need to reposition a few textures and find a good pipe texture. If you know where I can find a good pipe texture, then please direct me to that website. Thank you.

Because it has almost been a month since my last update, I decided that I should post some new screenshots. So, here are some screenshots of Galactic Spaceway:

Notes regarding the level:
- Walls will be added to the outskirts of the level.
- I am still looking for textures for the UFO, the Spaceship and the dome.
- The giant rock in the last screenshot will be fixed.

Feedback would be greatly appreciated.

You will see how well Galactic Spaceway turns out in-game once I upload a preview of it soon!

Also, I am currently working on the final Bowser level and it's actually going really well. It is almost done, actually. However, I probably won't post any screenshots of it because I really don't want to spoil the final level.

Furthermore, I will update the opening post with the new screenshots.
