Hello everyone , i am currently searching for beta testers , i already have some but it won't hurt to have more.
Also i have a review system for the beta testers so they can review my levels properly that help me the most.
Also beta testing usually goes in my discord server.
I have good news relating the project's development.
It is not cancelled and the hiatus is over , i have regain part of my motivation and i took some good decisions regarding Super Mario Nova.
Super Mario Nova will be divided into 2 Parts with their own theme but Part 2 will be an add on(DLC) to Part 1 which means in order to play Part 2 first you have to put it in the folder of Part 1 , i will try my best to explain it when the time comes.Part 1 will not be a demo or 50% of Super Mario Nova , it will be its own COMPLETED episode that connects to Part 2, Part 2 will be like a DLC that you can play after you have progressed enough in Part 1.
Also when Part 1 is done , i might continue with Part 2 if i have enough free time in the future to do it because nobody knows how life will go on.
Also i have decided to remove "The Novaverse" , "The Novaverse" is a concept of multiverse that involves multiple projects , it connects them into one big story but i have realised that it was too big for me to do and also that it will do more harm than good so i decided to remove it and focus all of my attention to the development of Super Mario Nova Part 1 and maybe Part 2 if things go right. Thank you for following the development of Super Mario Nova for so long , i will try my best to not disappoint you again.
Discord server about the development of the project:
So since Super Mario Nova became a Collab project , i was thinking that people will think that all of the credit about the development of this project will go to me because people won't be informed on how much has a certain person contributed to this project so far , so i had an idea to create a list where there are the names of the people that have contributed to this project and it will show what have they contributed so far.

- Why is this project being made in smbx 38A and not smbx 2.0?
This project is being developed in smbx 38A because:
1.I feel more comfortable using smbx 38A because of my gained knowledge on this engine compared to my knowledge on smbx 2.0.
2.There are some 38A's features that 2.0 doesn't have yet.
3.I can't convert this project to 2.0 yet and i don't want to redo everything from the ground up including learning luna lua so i can get on the same level as i know how to use teascript.
4.The smbx 2.0 community is not for me , it's not because they are bad , it's because i am bad and staying with the 38A community i feel like i am no longer bad.
Why is this project so big? (250 planned levels)
1.I have a lot of ideas that i want to recreate in a level and i need a lot of levels in order to do that , that's why i made SMN such a big project , yes there are a lot of cons when making a big project but i try to focus on the pros of it , because this project is so big , i decided to make it a collab one so people can contribute levels to it , this will make me both excited to continue on developing SMN and more free with how the project will go because the development of it goes faster and i get either more ideas along the way or i can use other people's ideas to make this project better.
2.At the time of creating this project i didn't know that small project could shine , but thanks to Enjl i now know that small projects can be way better than big ones but i still want this project to stay big.
When am i going to finish Super Mario Nova?
1.I don't know yet , i am only 1/4 done with this project after 16 months of development and there is still a loooot more to be done in order for this project to be finished, my expectations are after 2-3 years.
When is the second demo going to be finished and how big would it be?
1.The second demo will be probably be finished before this year but im not sure when , probably very late around November i think.And the second demo will contain at least 100-110 levels , yeah a second demo that is bigger than most average episodes :D.
Why do you want to make the best smbx episode(Related to SMN)?
That's a good question that nobody has asked me before , the reason i want to make this project , the best smbx episode is:
1.I have played plenty of smbx episodes and they have never broke my expectations or made me go WOAH in terms of gameplay and story , it was all poorly executed, just not fun for me so i want to create something that could break the expectations of a veteran smbx player and possibly everyone and make it the most fun , interesting and amazing smbx episode ever, yes i am working on it , i work on this project almost everyday around up to 4-8 hours and sometimes even more! I really want to achieve this goal even if it sounds crazy for you.
Why don't you accept criticism from most people?
1.I do accept criticism but often people don't see when and from who do i accept it , if i don't accept criticism its either because: I don't believe that your opinion will make my stuff better and I think that is too hard for me to do(or i'm lazy/tired)
Why should i contribute to your project?
1.You can contribute to make the development of this project faster, be in the credits of this episode and if you contribute a level , the icon of the level will show that the level was made by you and if you contribute a lot to this project there is a chance that if you have an OC or good ideas , they could be included in this project!
2.Supporting me will really mean a lot for me , even the smallest support can make the biggest difference!
This project will be half collab from now on , that means that i get to make the important levels that matter to the story and you can make the rest of the levels , of course if you want to design a level/s for this project you would need to show me through a level made by you that you can design a level that is above average , then the process on designing levels is pretty simple , first off you design a level for the world that we are working on and then i give you a selection of themes and you can either choose one or try to come up with your own and if i think that it fits or its good then you can design the level using that theme and after that there is a rule you must follow and that is no usage of SMB2 and YI graphics because these graphics will be used only for later worlds that are revolved around their usage.Then after you design a level i will test it and check it if it needs to be polished , if you want to polish it then you can do it or else i will polish it by myself.Also if you need help with something related to designing the level then you can ask me or join the nova projects channel https://discord.gg/t3Zuney and ask for help there , it will be also easier for me to see your progress and help you with it.One last thing , its important we start now because i want to release the second demo of this project way earlier and i thought that most of the levels don't need to be designed by me , only the levels that matter to the story so if we can get everything done for the second demo it might come rather soon. Around 65 levels are done so far and we need only around 10-20 more that can be designed by you and the rest 10-20 levels by me.Also don't forget to use smbx 38A/1.4.4 patch 2 to design the levels.
Super Mario Nova Story:
Princess Daisy's Toads found a mysterious organism in a glass cube from a Laboratory far away from the Mushroom Kingdom and then they brought the organism to her , after some research they saw that on bottom side of the cube had a sign with the words ,, Clone of Mother Brain '' on it. Then one of the Toads was captured by the Bowser's army by incident and then they asked him a couple questions about why The Group of Toads weren't in the Daisy's castle and after torturing him and beating him he decided to tell what was happening. Bowser then went to his airship with his kids and planned a mission to capture the Mother Brain's Cloning. The Player (Mario,Luigi,Toad,Peach) was invited by Princess Daisy to a meeting about her message of researching the Mother Brain's Cloning.And when she tells everyone the message , Mother Brain's Cloning is being stolen by Bowser and The Player's job is to defeat him or else he will start building his High-Technology Empire.
