(WIP) Super Mario Vastidity - (TC)

Post by StalkerBlade »

Image


"What is this?"
Super Mario Vastidity is an in-development total conversion fan mod that aims to recreate the gameplay of the 3D Mario games in the Doom engine.

"When will it be finished?"
Currently, it's gotten pretty far. It's still unfinished, but it's pretty close to being an actual game.



If you've ever wanted to play a Doom mod that feels absolutely nothing like Doom, than you've come to the right place. Inspired by Super Mario 64 and
Super Mario Odyssey, you'll find yourself running, jumping, and swimming on your journey to collect all of the Power Stars. Featuring large maps with
a lot of attention to detail and plenty of space for you to explore. Accuracy is very important for this mod; All of the mechanics are carefully made to
feel as close to the real thing as it could get, with the exception of a few minor limitations. 2D sections(wip) will also make an appearance through out the game.

Heheh... Reminds me of a mod I am currently working on (though it's kind of on hold right now)

Shame I can't play it though. I'm curious if it had things like the Triple Jump and whatnot.

Looking good.
Quick tip, if you don't want to get C&D from Nintendo, don't post anything about your project at all...
Release it quietly when it's done.

While I can appreciate that you want to warn OP about it, the post above yours more or less says the same thing in a much, much less vulgar way.

This kind of thing makes me wonder... Would it be OK for a project like this to replace everything with stuff that isn't recognizably Mario while keeping the gameplay mechanics?

I'm actually working on a more original mod that uses a lot of features from this one. It's gameplay style will be a mix of Mario 64, F-Zero and vanilla Doom.
I would almost be done with it by now, but I lack a lot of custom graphics, time and the advanced coding knowledge I need to perfect it...I'm still a bit of a noob when coding things. :oops: I am pretty far into it though; There's even a couple of weapons that are finished. :)

This looks very good! I like how it sorta looks like Mario 64. The M&L sprites work like a charm!

Won't happen, because Golden Souls is Mario inspired, not a straight up Mario Game. And i honestly don't think it will happen to this project either. There are plenty of Mario projects up online including pretty popular stuff such as Super Mario Flashback. Not to mention, taking down a whole website is very unlikely.

Still im worried because nintendo is unpredictable in this type of stuff.

I wouldn’t worry. They didn’t go after that Metroid 2 remake for years until they decided they wanted to make their own.

At worst you will receive a cease and desist for this mod specifically, Nintendo doesn't have the authority to take any further legal action than that.

Update:

Dynamic jumping has now been implemented. It was easier done than said, shockingly...It only took a little over an hour to get it working, which is good. Definitely improves the gameplay now that you can control how high you're able to jump. The last thing I would love to add in to this before I move on from it is an "orbit" camera like in the actual games...I attempted this multiple times, but they never seemed to work out. I imagine It would be super hacky to make it work though.

You could try checking how La Tailor Girl does it, there's a nice orbit camera there

It's all in zscript, and based on what the notes say with in it, it's a bit unfinished...That's ok though, ZombieKiller made a mod that's exactly what I needed; I just need to fix how the movement works. It currently eliminates acceleration momentum from using SetActorVelocity, but I think I can work around this if I spend some time toying with it. This camera will the icing on the cake if I can make it work. :)
