Hi! Welcome to my HD texture pack information page for Super Mario 3D Land!

Some general info regarding this texture pack which you should read before you download it;

 

  • There are ~4000 textures in total in the game (I have tried to dump every single one, however I may have missed a few). Out of these textures a few hundred have been completely re-textured. Many other textures have been been up-scaled using A.I upscaling. Some filtered textures have been modified or changed entirely to look better as well. Some textures remain completely untouched until I've worked on them since some textures look bad when upscaled.

  • I am completely up for suggestions, changes and submissions. You will of course be fully credited for any work you submit.
     

  • The 4K version of the texture pack is scaled to 8x the default resolution, this means that (if internal resolution is increased in Citra) you may be able to view some textures at a staggering 6832x3480 resolution! The 1080p version is scaled to 4x the default resolution, which still results to slightly above 1080p.

  • My goal with this texture pack is to enhance the original game visuals while staying faithful to the original vision. That means my textures are meant to blend in as much as possible with the old textures so the game feel doesn't change (with some exceptions, feedback is appreciated).

  • This texture pack is made for Citra and includes custom shader presets to provide nice graphical features like Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (self shadowing around meshes), Bloom, Depth of Field, Tone Mapping and much more. And you can tweak it to make the game look however you like!

  • This texture pack will work with any custom mods / hacks of Super Mario 3D Land as long as they aren't adding new textures or changing old ones (in that case, conflicting textures will be overwritten by one another but it will still work).​

 

  • Currently, only NTCS textures have been modified. You can still use this texture pack on Japanense / European / Korean versions of the game in Citra, it will still work and load the existing textures just fine. This will not include the region specific textures though (if there are any). Make sure to run the "Region Changer" script inside the coresponding folder if you're playing a version that's not NTSC (North American!)

  • If you don't like the way my texture pack looks (colors, contrast or general look), please note that all post processing can be modified easily from user to user to fit your own preference, you can make it look however you like. Simply press the "Home" key on your keyboard while in-game and configure the post processing in ReShade easily and immediately!

  • If you are having issues with stuttering and lag, remember to check "Prefetch Custom Textures" in the 'Advanced' tab of the Graphics settings before asking for help. I also recommend enabling V-Sync as it removes screen tearing in full screen mode.​



Here are some other nice features not available in the original game I've listed out the top of my head;

  • Better visuals (Higher resolution textures, material maps, rim lighting, depth of field, ambient occlusion, global illumination, tonemapping, post processing shaders and even ray tracing which is coming at a later date!)

  • Android Support

  • Superior mods and modding tools (less performance limitations)

  • Supports original and third party GameCube controllers using the official GameCube Adapter

  • Supports a plethora of cheats and patches

  • Stereoscopic 3D support

  • VR Potential

  • Supports nearly all gamepads. Including PS4, Xbox One, GameCube, Joy-Con or the Switch Pro Controller. Including gyro / motion control emulation on PS4, Joy-Con and Switch Pro controllers.

Installation:

There is no installation! A custom version of Dolphin is provided alongside the texture pack. Simply extract the folder somewhere and start Citra using "Super Mario 3D Land.exe". If you're on Mac or Linux, please manually download Citra from this page for your operating system and copy the "User" folder from the texture pack over to your default Dolphin directory (replace conflicting files if prompted).

How do I get the game rom?

No game files are distributed with this texture pack, since that would be illegal. You need to get the game .iso yourself. The legal way is to dump the game yourself from your own Wii or Wii U console. See these instructions!

 

If you encounter any issues with the texture pack please post them on the Forums or on Discord!
 

Enjoy!
