This mappack is too hard. I can't even get into the first level!

But seriously though, you never said what version of the game this is for.

I really feel that creativity is pretty vital for a kaizo hack like this. I might have said this many times over other forums, but artificial difficulty- like a rampage of enemies in one given area and over usage of Koumei- invisible blocks spread just before a pit- wouldn't give you many marks in a mappack-designing competition.
And, grey portal blocks that are linked directly to overworld SMB blocks- with no backgrounds whatsoever (Not very neccessary, but it depends.)- doesn't look natural in a mappack. Consider designing the level terrain that looks kind of "right" you will have seen in other mappacks.
Consider adding some good puzzle like levels, like looping mazes with not too many enemies, can get effective in a mappack. Look closely at your mappack. Compare them with the best mappacks you have ever played. What major differences do you notice between yours and them?
Some years ago, while mucking around with mari0 and decided to make my own mappack, the style of it looks somewhat similar to yours. But after some time later (I was working with SMB instead of mari0 over this period), my maps and levels gradually began to get better. While I haven't tried making vanilla-type levels recently, try and be conscious while making mappacks. It will pay off.

meh it was just a quick kaizo map i just made with not cheaplike with invisible blocks i thought just too add some thwomps in the beginning to get people off guard and the piranhas to dodge and keep off the classic keep off the ground type of kaizo and i wanted to stick to the classic Kaizo or  Asshole  Mario but thanks for advice i actually have a map coming up its supposed to be an unofficial plot to Mari0

Okay cool, I've actually made that mistake before.

No, what you're planning is way too ambitious and you are going to end up hating everything about the project by the end. That's what happened to Qwertylevels.

Your best bet is to mess around in the editor until you find one, single mechanic to use for your mappack, whether it's an enemy, set of entities, or even a weird tile configuration. Make sure you have one central mechanic, and see how other mechanics already in the game interact with that. Then, make your levels so that everything teaches, serves, or interacts with the one mechanic you used.

For the youtube tag to work, you need to use the "full" url (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[VIDEO_ID_HERE], also make sure to remove the s from https).

For exemple, your post should have

Code: Select all

Yeah,  Nintendo doesn't really like when people use their games' songs .
