Editor's note: This page is under construction.

An area's generator files can be found in /user/Abe/map/*. Amongst these, the loop and nonloop folders, as well as the defaultgen.txt, initgen.txt, and plantsgen.txt contain data for what objects to spawn in the area, and how. These text files must be encoded in Shift-JIS, or at least ASCII. If the file is saved as a UTF-8 text file with the EF BB BF magic word at the start, the game will not read it correctly, assuming you only have one sublevel. To avoid any issues, use Notepad++ and check the encoding in the bottom right.

The loop and nonloop folders have intriguing file-naming formats. They likely mean something, and it's likely related to the days. Possibilities:

  • <starting day>-<ending day>.txt
  • <starting day>-<number of days&gt.txt

Header

Each file starts with a line titled # generatorMgr <Generator(Default)>. Under this is, {v0.1}, which denotes the format of the file. The coordinates next to startPos seem to be useless. Under startDir is a number (in this case 34, the number after the hashtag does NOT matter, as does anything else after a hashtag). This number must be the same as the number of entities listed in the file, or else the game will crash.

Entity

Underneath that in the brackets is the actual entity; in the above example, the Hocotate Ship. Everything above # pos seems to be debug info for the original programmers with no effect on the entity(enemy or object) itself. The numbers next to # pos are the entity's x, y, and z coordinates. To find a point's coordinates in a level use 3DS Max or Super Mario Sunshine (SMS) Bin Editor. In # offset are more x y z coordinates that will "offset" or move the entity over more by the amount specified. This value is not used in-game and is basically redundant. Under that is the Entity's class, for example {item} {0002}. Further still under that in the brackets is the # item id. Finally, entities have 3 # rotation values, to rotate it a number of degrees on the x, y, or z axis, respectively. To keep an object upright only change the y parameter. Under that lie the Entity's unique parameters. There are multiple types of Entities in the Overworld, with differing parameters. These include...

Entity categories

  1. "{item} {0002}"
    • Includes Hocotate Ship, the Onions, Caves, Weight Blocks, Gates, Rock Clogs, Nectar Grass, Necter Pebble, and Bridges.
    • Some living things as well, like Burgeoning Spirderwort and the Ujadani.
  2. "{piki} {0001}"
    • Includes all five types of Pikmin, spawning any into overworld is possible.
    • Also seems to deal with Submerged Castle's Blues only code.
  3. {teki} {0005}
    • Includes all things in the Piklopedia; that is to say, enemies.
    • An enemy with a treasure in it is part of this group and has a value of that treasure + 768.
  4. {pelt} {0000}
    • Are exclusively treasures.

*Below, an x is used to denote where the variable is to be input in a parameter line.

Item Id Parameters Notes
{onyn} (onion/ship) x # onyon index x # after boot? true==1 Index 4 = Hocotate Ship, Index 2 = Yellow Onion, Index 1 = Red Onion, Index 0 = Blue Onion, 0 after boot = Onion leaves after a day, 1 after boot = Onion stays for good
{piki} (pikmin) {p000} 4 x # 色 {p001} 4 x # 数 {p002} 4 x # 自活(1=yes) {_eof} {p000} 0 = Blue 1 = Red 2 = Yellow 3 = Purple 4 = White, {p001} x = # of Pikmin, {p002} 0 for idle Pikmin, 1 if otherwise The fours are part of the code
{cave} (caves) x.txt units.txt {x_XX} # id (for stages.txt) # FogParm { {fg00} - {fg09} } First is the caveinfo file, second is the units list it pulls from, next is the stages.txt id, which includes text and hazard warning data. {fg00} through {fg03} deal with fog zone start and end, how fast it starts and how long it lingers, {fg04} through {fg06} are the colors of the fog, and {fg07} through {fg09} deal with the distances the fog spreads out when inside, when it appears, and when it disspates. The fours are part of the code
{pelt} (treasure) x } under pellet local version The Treasure's ID
{brdg} (stick bridges) x #橋タイプ 0 = poison bridge 1 = slope bridge 2 = straight bridge
{gate} (bramble gates) x.000000 #ライフ x #Color First parameter is the gate's HP, second is the gate's color. 1 for black, 0 for white
{weed} (nectar grass/pebble) x #うじゃ王数 x #石か草か x #1 = amount of grass x #2 = 0 for stone, 1 for nectar grass
under construction x Temporary.
