    My early in development NSMB2 hack (Unamed as of now) is turning out to be a bigger project than I originally expected, and I am going to need some help. I originally planned for the hack to just have custom levels and tilesets, My ambitions quickly grew to include re-textured worlds, new backgrounds, maybe new music, etc. But there's a problem, I'm only good at making levels, and my attempts at trying world map edits and new backgrounds ended in the game looking like a 3 year old made all the textures in MSpaint. So after that, i thought that i would seek help with the project, so that's what I'm doing. Details below.

    So, I'm looking for a few people to help me here's a list of people I need and what each job entails. Downloads for most of the requird programs are at the bottom.

    World Map Designer - Edits world map textures and models to fit the theme of the levels in the world. Requires Dump of NSMB2, Ohana3ds (Non-rebirth) for texture/model exporting and importing, paint.net or another image editing software to edit the textures/models, artistic ability, Maya 2015 for modeling.
    1-2 People Needed.

    Background Editior -
    Edits backgrounds to fit the theme of the level. Requires Dump of NSMB2, Maya 2015, 3D modeling software that can export a format that is supported by Maya 2015, 3DS Hack Pack.
    1 Person Needed.

    Level Reviser -
    Checks levels for errors and makes last minute changes to the levels. Requires Dump of NSMB2, Coinkiller (level editor).
    Position Filled.

    Tileset creator -
    creates custom tilesets for levels. Requires Dump Of NSMB2, Coinkiller, Paint.net.
    1-2 People Needed.

    Level Designer (My job, having more than 1 will really speed up the process) -
    Creates custom levels. Requires dump of NSMB2, Coinkiller (level editor).
    1 Person needed.

    Music Creator -
    Creates custom music. Requires Dump of NSMB2, Audacity, Any program that can create music, HXD hex editor, Smash3DSpack, Foobar 2000, Vgmstream for foobar2000.
    1-3 People.

    Q & A

    Has Development started yet?

    Yes, I got through the first world, but once plans for editing the worlds where put on the agenda, the levels where scraped, so new ones that match better can be created.

    How Long will development take?
    I don't know, expect the hack to be finished by Q1 2018 at the latest.

    What if I want to help but i don't know what to do?
    Check the tutorials and check out the NSMB2 Hacking section over at Kuribo64 to find out how to use the tools provided.

    There's a serious lack of NSMB2 hacks on here, hopefully they start to get more attention sooner or later.

    If you check on Kuribo 64 a few are taking shape, then again that was the case with Next and then development stopped.

    I've actually been working on a hack myself, if I get the time maybe I will polish it up and apply to help you with this and merge the hacks together...

    Im gonna recommend you delete the link to "3ds Hack Pack" as supplying people with Warez isn't exactly advisable.

    Your may also wanna show off some levels and other stuff created for the hack, that way people know what they are actually getting into.

    I'd be willing to be the level reviser. I have always wanted to work on a hack like this and my interest has been piqued.

    I am usually a quick learner and I have dumped countless 3ds games.

    I can go dump NSMB2 now if you think I could do something. If not I won't worry about it.

    Do you have discord? That would be the easiest way for a team to communicate

    That would be the best way for everybody. Maybe send it to me in the DM I just spent the last two minutes writing.
