    I am planning to make a hack of NSMBWii that will include remakes of all of the levels from Super Mario Bros., Most from Super Mario Bros: the Lost Levels(See bellow), The ghosts houses from Super Mario World(And possibly the special world, too), and some of the airships from Super mario bros 3.

    The first half of each world will generally be the levels from the respective world from Super mario bros, and likewise with the second half of each world and Super mario bros lost levels. Air Ships will be from Super mario bros 3, And Ghost houses w ill be from Super mario world. However, this does not work out very well with the layout of some worlds.
    World 3 has 3 levels plus a ghost house before the tower, and two levels before the castle. I'm guessing I could put a second path near the beginning of 3-4, only accessible by using the red blocks produced by the switch. The path would lead to SMB:LL 3-3
    World 4 is similar. However, this time, the ghost house is after the tower. I guess I could make the outside portion of the ghost house SMB;LL 4-2.
    World 5 is the same as above.
    World 6 Has 6 normal levels plus a tower and castle. However, it's 4 normal levels before the tower and two after. Im guessing I could put SMB:LL 5-1 as the first level on the short path(the one that leads directly to the castle).
    World 8 has an extra level. An SMB3 level, perhaps? Oh, and there is no airship in world 8 in SMB3. I'm guessing I could put world 7-airship as it. Ideas?
    World 9... I have no idea. SMB has no world 8. If I put in world 9 from SMB:LL, what can I put as world 9-5 through world 9-8? I could also put the super mario world special world levels here. Thoughts?

    Oh, and what can I put in place of poison mushrooms? Mini mushrooms? They are somewhat of a power-down if you are big.

    Check out the newer super mario wii thread. They're putting together some retro levels. Maybe you could join up with them.

    SMB: LL also has world's A - D.
    You could use some of those levels to fill in the blanks.

    You're pretty late on this, there are already multiple projects regarding retro mario remakes.

    I hope once Reggie is released this isn't as common an occurrence as I fear it might be...

    Remakes are cool and all, but if there are 20 different teams/groups all doing remakes it's going to get old quickly. I would love to see all the Remake People work together and make one hell of a remake game, rather then 4-5 or even 20 average ones. This would also cut down on repeat remakes as well...


    That being said...
    Staying organized is key, it's by far the hardest challenge we are facing with the Newer project, but we seem to finally be getting a good grasp on that aspect of things.

    The biggest piece of advice I can offer is: Try to plan ahead as much as you can. You seem to have a fairly good concept outline, but the more info you can put ahead of you, the easier the game building task will be.


    Off-topic closing comments: I can't wait to see some more 'Original Content' only teams emerge!
