Well, after a longer period of not being able (and more then two weeks too late for which I greatly apologize) to upload this pack, here it finally is, my fourth and final expanded GFX-pack.
It contains almost every tileset from the original Super Mario World (it only misses the "Bossroom"-tileset as far as I know) edited and expanded.
Like my other packs of the "expanded"-series it aims for removing cutoff patterns, 8x8-style (which is featured the most in SMW's tilesets) and adding new things, like more BGOs.

But text bores more than pictures, so here are some screenshots of a bit of this packs content ^^:

The pack also contains many recolors of some of the tilesets. This is what it contains for now:
(1) Overworld tilesets and BGOs in the following recolors; plains, grassland, chocolate, mountain, forest, and snow.
(2) Underground/cave tilesets (for now without BGOs) in the following recolors; grey, vanilla, sandy, dark, lime (used in underwater-levels in SMW), chocolate, and frozen.
(3) Castle-tilesets and BGOs in the following recolors; grey, dark, and chocolate.
(4) A ghosthouse-tileset inclusive BGOs.
(5) A sky-tileset
(6) A wooden tileset
(7) Bonus area-tilesets in the following recolors; blue, green, yellow, red, orange, brown, and dark.
(8) Expanded pipes in 8 colors, aswell as small versions of them.
(9) Expanded giant logs and bill/banzai blasters (you can build a treetop-like level with the giant logs now ^^).
(10) Many new miscallaneous blocks, sizables and BGOs.
(11) My previously released SMW expanded worldmap GFX-pack.
(12) Almost all level-backgrounds from SMW which also got edited and resized to 1024x1200 pixels, save for a few of them (and a heavily edited version of the sunken ghost ship-background that features 2x2 pixels instead of 4x4 pixels).

Of course I will update this pack in the future, so there is much more to come. It just will take some time until that.
The only NPCs that this pack contains for now, are different variants of the piranha plants and a venus fire trap in SMW-form, to go along with the different pipes. More NPCs will follow in the future.

Please know that this pack is best used with PGE, because of it's abilities to make custom blocksizes possible the easy way.
So I advice you to use this pack with the level-editor of PGE to make it most useful (and because if you use the standard SMBX-editor, many blocks in this pack will be displayed glitchy).
I made tileset-files in PGE that are included in the respective folders, so you can use everything in this pack from the get go without needing to build the tilesets yourself.


Credits for sources I used:

Nintendo - for the obvious thing ^^
"Stefan Mahrla" - for the ripped level-maps of SMW that I used.
Mario Universe - where I got the level-maps from
Spriters Resource - where I got some spritesheets from
The Cutting Room Floor - For some sprites (and some interesting infos too ^^)

Everything in this pack is edited and expanded by me, which took me a very long time to accomplish, so please give credit to me if you use anything from this pack.

Please have fun and good luck for your levels or projects :-)

The stuff you've handdrawn yourself doesn't match the style of the SMW objects you just expanded/recoloured. This is especially obvious with the hills and the scenery of the castle and ghost house tilesets.

@Enjl: Maybe, but it fits pretty decently, I don't think it matters that much.

Sednaiur, you're the man, and I don't nickname other people "the man" that easily. You've earned the respect of the entire community. Give yourself a hug and a cookie, you deserve that and more. Love the chandeliers and the bridge, the latter lacking its 3D-ish effect looks a lot better now imo. Looking forward to more stuff for Lowser's Conquest as well. Thumbs up!

Yeah the custom hills don't really fit with SMW, though they would go great with SMB3 restyled SMW stuff.

Otherwise this is really great! I've been waiting for this for a while now, and it's great that it's finally out. The castle stairs you made should replace the default ones in the next SMBX update.

I'd suggest making some of the player blocks round - you couldn't before LunaLua, but now that you can use .png graphics, you can.

Ah. I see it's finally here. Very good job with this. This is incredibly useful.

Wow. We've all been waiting so long for this--and it was worth the wait. So many useful resources that will be so helpful. Your obviously great amount of work is highly appreciated.

Finally
you released it
Holy Sednaiur
The GFX looks AMAIZING, especially the tree tileset ones and the expanded tileset. I can see that you add more shading in these bushes. I will use this.

Well, this is something I've been waiting for a whole year since you announced it. Great to see you finally released this gem :)
The wooden column expanded tileset is something I wanted to do some time ago, but unfortunantely never got around it. It's great to see that you did it!

Great work on the expansion in general ;)

Valtteri already did these
Holy mother of god, this is something that even I have been waiting for. I am definitely getting behind this already. I like the ghost house ones and the castle ones best, and now you can expect to see much more decorative levels thanks to your awesome graphics.

Next up, you should do a Zelda one.

This is something odd I discovered while wandering in your pack:
Spoiler: show

This background will look cut in SMBX, as well as this background's recolors.

Also why are Venus Fire Plants's Fireballs SMB3? You could easily replace it with player's SMW fireball. Same goes to the world map lava.
Talking about lava, you probably forgot to add it, as well as some other tilesets, such as the Pipe Cannon, Spike Pillars, final boss tileset. Maybe also Firebar NPC and Berries. But I assume you're going to add these in the next update, right? :)

I was able to forgive it in the other 3 packs, since the shading style for SMB1, 2 and 3 are pretty similar to Sednaiur's custom sprites (even though they're (the game sprites) sharper and the colours are more defined). SMW's style, however, is so cartoonish, that this actually becomes sort of an issue. I feel like he could've just thrown all those BGOs I've mentioned into the SMB1 pack, after giving them a slight recolour.

Oops, didn't see that. Thanks for pointing out that.

Yeah, I know. I would think the same as you, but the tilesets overall were also re-shaded, so it does match somewhat nicely. And if your problem is with how it looks more detailed and dishonors the game itself for being as it is, cartoonish, well I don't think we'll be seeing a fixed version anytime soon, I personally don't find Sednaiur going over changing the entire pack what could be considered his signature shading. But I'm speaking for somebody else, who knows, he actually might go over all that trouble.

As others have already said, some of the BGOs in this pack don't match well the SMW style.
But this pack is really good anyways. I really like the tileset made out from the crushers.

To be fair, SMW never really had a consistent style to begin with. Take the Blue Hills background and compare it to the rest of the different bgs for example, that background has outlines and the clouds use dithering while the rest of em have smooth outlines and do not use dithering to shade (on the bgs that do have a bit more than just flat shading but the majority do not).

The foreground is more consistent at best.

Can't believe this is the final one. I wish you can do a NSMBDS , NSMBW , NSMBU pack. ^_^
