You can now add playable Mario into your Blender scenes thanks to this plug-in by Jeremy Burns.
Game Developer Jeremy Burns has released a new free plug-in for Blender that allows you to add a playable 3D version of Mario into your scenes to run around and test your terrain layout. This plug-in is a part of Burns’ libsm64 library that provides a frontend to movement and rendering code generated by recent work to decompile the ROM for Nintendo’s 1996 3D platformer Super Mario 64.
With the add-on enabled there should be a LibSM64 tab in the properties sidebar. You need to browse to an unmodified SM64 US z64 ROM, and then click the "Insert Mario" button to insert a controllable Mario at the 3D cursor location. To stop the simulation just delete the "LibSM64 Mario" object from the scene.
- Water boxes support
- Toggles to give wing/metal/vanish cap
- Moving platform support
- Camera integration
- Linking against custom decomp builds (modified controls/Mario model/etc)
Currently, the plug-in is available for Windows and Linux. You can learn more and download the add-on by clicking this link.
