Anyways, remember Pleasant Path? In Paper Mario 64, if you take the path to the right of Toad Town, you will enter Pleasant Path.
Above is a screen shot of Pleasant Path in Paper Mario 64, compared to a work-in-progress screen shot of Pleasant Path in Mushroom Kingdom Adventure. Below the comparison screen shots is a small presentation of how we are reproducing the old N64 graphics in higher quality using our own graphical style.
The Majority of texture images in Mushroom Kingdom Adventure are made using the method we displayed here. We actually model out all the detail in 3D and color the models using basic colors and generated bump maps. We then add a tiny bit of lighting for a natural effect, and render them into 2D seamless, repeating textures. Then we map these textures onto the appropriate objects we design for them, such as the shrub we have reproduced in 3D.
