    Before we start do all the following and download all the links below!

    How to make an extended, expanded and obj imported ROM?

    With obj imported ROM i mean that you have patched the obj_import6.ppf to the ROM. Now here is how to make that whole thing.
    HOW TO MAKE A READY ROM FOR LEVEL IMPORTING?
    1. Open ROM Extender(1.3b) and choose your clean SM64 rom. Now just wait.
    2. When it's finished, drag the rom to rom_expand.exe.
    3. Open PPF-O-Matic. Choose the SM64 ROM for ISO file and then choose "obj_import6.ppf" for patch and apply. You're DONE!

    WHERE SHOULD I PUT MY PLUGINS?
    Put the obj exporter and triangulate plugin to: Google/Google Sketchup X/Plugins

    Google Sketchup 8 has already came! I gotta download that one....

    Download links for the stuff coming!

    Toad's Tool 64 (for adding objects like boxes. next tutorial may be from this one):

    Super Mario 64 Texture Pack:
    http://sites.google.com/site/messiaen64/level-importer/Mario64Textures.zip?at...

    What you should achieve by the end of this tutorial:


    Remember these:
    -Do not put any text to your level, or make your own low-polygon text.
    -Texture only the outside parts of the objects. Do not texture inside/opposite parts, where Mario should not be.
    -You must have NET.framework 3.5, or the graphics are not working correctly.

    Step.1: Using Google Sketch Up make yourself a lovely level (if it's your first try or just trying this out, don't worry about complexity)
    I'll just make a rectangle with a pillar.

    Spoiler:


    Step 2: After playing around and stuff it's time to add texture Click the fill bucket and it will show a 'materials' tool box at the side. There will be a create Material button, click it and go select your texture to use
    MAKE SURE: you fill every plane of your map or the ROM may not accept it.

    Spoiler:


    The after result:

    Spoiler:


    Step 3: If you think your done with all the textures go to plug ins and and click Triangulate.
    Your result should be something like this?

    Spoiler:


    Step 4: Time to export! Go back to plugins and click OBJ Exporter you should get something like this?

    Spoiler:


    It's pretty straight forward what to do here. Just save where you want the .obj file to be. Don't bother with the check boxes. after finishing click 'Export!'
    Congrats! Your almost done!

    Step 5:
    Time to open the OBJ_Import_GUI, Load your level in the 'Open OBJ' box and your fully extended rom (explaination at the top) in the 'Load ROM' box.

    Spoiler:


    Then choose your level settings (music, bg, terrain etc) and Enemies.
    then go test it. If it works, go play in Toad Tools to put in Stars and Enemies, obstacles and bosses.

    Here is our end Result:

    If you have any questions, just ask!

    Ooh I've been wanting to try this as I have been playing with 3D programs for a while. Perhaps you could give simple instructions as to how TT64 works?

        Ah. Ok. I played around with it for a bit and I got a level imported. It worked nicely, except there were a few collision errors. I'll have to redo it and grab a video of it. It failed on Project 64 for some reason.

          If Project 64 said something about ''Cic Chips'' then go into the Settings (make sure advance is on) and change all memory related boxes to 8MB it'll still say the message on start up but the game is playable...
