    Hi everyone, i'd like to introduce you to my latest project I teased a while ago on my youtube channel:
    OdysseyEditor
    A Super Mario Odyssey level editor

    [​IMG]

    The name pretty much says it all, currently it can open and edit odyssey levels. Adding objects doesn't work yet, but you can duplicate existing objects and change their name so it's not that big of an issue.
    Other than editing levels it can also load and edit byml files from the game (and probably other switch games).
    There is still much research to be done, I might not be able to work actively on this until mid-summer, any contribution on Github is welcome.
    To use it you need your own dump of the game, don't ask here how to get it.

    For more info read the Readme on Github
    Download here
    Requires Window 7,8,9,10 and .NET framework 4.5.2


    Screenshots

    Video (spoiler for last level of the game)

    FAQ:
    Windows Defender won't let me run it.
    This is normal for "Homebrew" software, as this doesn't have a digital signature nor it's in Microsoft's databases it warns you that it might be a virus, click on more options and run anyway.

    The only way i could remove this warning is to and digitally sign the exe, but buying a certificate costs $$$
    If you don't trust the exe you can check the code on Github and compile it yourself.

    Some models look worse than in-game.
    As levels are much more complex than 3D Land, to improve performances the editor loads the furthest LOD of each model (aka the lowest quality)


    The editor is laggy
    Unfortunately you need a decent pc to run it, on my gaming laptop from late 2016 most of the levels run fine, but some of the most crowded ones like the city are laggy.

    To improve the performances while editing you can hide models you don't need like backgrounds, skies, etc

    It's funny that they can create this tool. Why not create a Virtual System that emulates the entire game itself ?.
