Hola guys,

So I was reading stuff on the internet and I found the most interesting thing I've read in a while. It was that message of Majora's Mask article by a "Hylian Dan". So while reading it, I suddenly had a light bulb go off in my mind.

This idea that formulated was to bring his theory to life in the form of a LBP2 level (the classy way of doing things). I think this story/theory is really interesting and "juicy", especially if you're a Zelda fan.

If you haven't read the article (which can be found here, but it's super long (http://www.zeldainformer.com/2010/10/the-message-of-majoras-mask.html)), it's basically saying that the Ancient Ones from MM attempted to reach the Sacred Realm to kill the Goddesses (because their giants were so totally better) but they turned the tables and turned heaven into hell. This led them to find a satanic figure, Majora, whose mask consumed their life (kind of like a LoTR type of deal) and drove everything into craziness, eventually sealing the destruction of Termina.

So I believe this idea could be turned into some kind of level series in which you play an innocent bystander or someone important, I'm not sure on details. I would just like to know if anyone thinks this had potential, or sounds like it would just be boring and too complicated (the article was really long). Please let me know what you think :)

P.S. I know there's another MM project going on but I really think this thing can be made into a successful RPG or something, I apologize if sounds like I'm trying to "abuse" the story of a good game.

*EDIT* Hi there's a trailer now, details on latest post, here it is:

Oh ok thanks for the offer!

I'm working on a story right now, like making sure my facts are right and stuff. I would say that's more my..specialty.

And what exactly would you like to see?

I can't wait to see this come to fruition. If you need help with scenery give me a holler.

Alrighty

So....recreating the Mask for concept art is like...really hard...

Anyways, to prove I'm not just one of those people who say I'm going to try to do an ambitious project and it turns out to be really ugly and depressing, I'm going to make like samples of what I would make and put them here. But it might take me a while... The mask for example, hard stuff. Im trying to be really meticulous :P

Wow, this looks very intriguing.This definitely has a potential to become an epic series with meeting/recruiting different characters along the whole journey(ala LoTR).

I suggest though that you post the progress of your design and level mechanics so that people here will be able to see that this isn't another pipe dream. We will be able to comment, feedback, and give more ideas if something tangible is present.

So...What would you say your "scenery speciality" is? The primary setting of this would be in the Ikana Canyon and the Stone Tower.


On another note, here are some pictures that depict nothing really, just here to make the thread look nice. I made them all :) (even though it wasn't really that difficult, kind of)
The Mask was a pain, and I guess you can say it's a beta because there is no way anyone could take that seriously in a level.

I'm sorry about the quality... Of both the mask and the picture

This looked a little better in my actual level. Like there were actually people in the...shooting blasts?

These pictures do have something to do with the level though.

Your creations look great, clever thing you did with the flying light spectrals in the air, sackbots no doubt. I expect; if your dedicated to the level and move slowly, you will suceed gooduck.

A concept of the entrance to the stone tower. Don't worry because this is also a beta. I would add way more detail to the rocks and such in the game.

The real thing is linked here (http://www.zeldainformer.com/images/articleimages/mmmessage/hda2.jpg).

Anyways, I've been thinking and researching and I realized the easiest and best way to format this level would to be like LoZ 2 where it's a mixture of top down and sidescrolling (with 3D for way more depth rather than simple 2d side view). And I decided who the best character to play as would be but that's another topic. Anyways, I really am going to try to get this done, so please don't write me off right away as another one of those people who comes up with ideas just for fun.

I'd like to get started ASAP on the actual level, but I think It'd be smarter to write out a script of sorts and make the level meaningful like the article its based on. So that's what I'm doing right now (not forgetting about this idea and totally ignoring it).

I would love to be able to help you with this in any way.If you need logic or music, let me know, not because I think you need it, just because I am a huge fan of the Zelda series (especially Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask). Beat Ocarina of time when I was 4 years old.

Well, I happen to be a music creator myself. Fortunately, I work very fast. You have teh competitionz.
But, sadly, I am with a competing level by PelicanThor, known with PSN ID: VolcanicThor.
So, I shall likely double team? If I have to take sides I will. Response?

Actually if i can get my hands on a certain adapter at Best Buy, I could get music directly from the game, though thats deffinitely some kind of copyright infringement.

Either way, Ill be recreating them, and if he wants some of mine, theyre his, as well for you

Clayton
07-22-2011, 12:31 AM
ANyways, Destroyer, add me on Psn, Id like to see some of the music you come up with :)

Clayton
07-22-2011, 12:33 AM
Aha sorry, last note, I have several songs already made, they are perfect recreations, but they are from songs of Ocarina of Time instead of Majoras mask. Lemme know if your interested

Methinks he needs majora's mask sheet moosicalz. How about the termina field theme? Or to take it even further, all the themes? Yes, methinks i will make them all.

Oh dang thanks a lot guys, this is awesome!

I would appreciate both of your guyses help a lot. Any music you'd be willing to volunteer would be muy excellente.

And competing? Do you mean like another MM level? I wouldn't like to call it competing, just like... both making/having MM levels at the same time?
That Best Buy adapter thing sounds cool and I know it's not "good" but there's ways to get around it, as many know.

I was actually about to ask for Music help so thanks a lot guys. If you were interested in the actual story I'm trying to make out of the article I could tell you more about it (if you were interested).

So there's my Woodfall experimentation. It's actually being used, but I'm just gonna do some fine tuning. In the sequence its in, the lighting changes so the cloud around it becomes whiter and normal looking. I'm also going to add more detail... Any suggestions for decorations? I don't really know what to add in terms of minute details because what I've tried (adding leaves and other things) ruins the illusion. Anyways, this whole project hasn't been ignored and I've been working on it and stuff. A lot of thanks to Clayton^^.


Edit: Really hadn't seen this picture yet and let me tell you...It looks A LOT better on the PS3. You can make out the sun and the lighting on the Woodfall mountain thing that gives it its purple-green look.

Sorry man had to eat dinner an then my brother got On twilight princess and isnt getting off, l be on soon though, also for the intro, you show a sky view of Woodfall, but then show the Entrance to stone tower temple, so maybe we either show an overview of the four directions for the intro or we show the entrances to he four temples as well

Its fine we were really productive. Today I'm gonna fix up the holes (if you didnt, I dont know if you did before I left) and copy the whole Snowpeak and make a 3D walk path so it looks like its coming at you. Itll be a copy so we'll have both to choose from. It looks really real n nice though, good job

But anyways, in regards to story for all to read, It was decided that Skull kid will be going to the 4 corners of Termina and doing something (I know what hes doing now..) in each land. Basically the story is finished, wooooo

Uh hi everyone

I finished the Introduction, which I'm gonna publish as a preview trailer for people to see my.. works. And Claytons too.

Anyways, the "trailer"/intro info can be found here:

Also, the music isn't quite ready yet, I still need to find ways to make it fit cinematic-wise so there's still some kinks. It's another "beta" type thing.

So I spent like all of yesterday watching a friend of mine play through the beginning of MM, and was trying to think of things that I could build for a Zelda level. Something that I have been mulling over in my head all day today is how the tech for a pause screen / item invertory could be implimented and I have some interesting ideas...

are you / would you be interested in incorporating items such as the hookshot, powermit, bombs, arrows? because if you are, I think I have a device I would be interested in trying to build that would let you select these items and use them...
Should I try and make it, and see how it comes out? Or do you already have this covered?

Sorry, I haven't been on LBPC for a little while.

And yes, that sounds interesting and if you would still be willing, I could use something like that.
Thanks for the offer!

Sorry, I'm on again and I can't quite remember the status of this offer. Would you still be willing to help?
