Super Mario Galaxy 2 Project Template is a free-to-use extension for your own SMG2 modding projects. It's feature-rich as it includes tons of new objects, basic project files such as a Riivolution XML file as well as Dolphin INI files, the Syati loader, new Power Star colors and more. If you are using the template or any of its patches, make sure to credit the respective developers. Its development started around April 2021 and has received several major updates since them. It surpasses my SMG2 Starter Pack which featured many assembly patches. If you encounter any issues, please contact me on the Luma's Workshop Discord server.

Fixed Objects

Project Template also provides the required files and data for some specific object features.

ObjectFixes
HoneyBeeAdded back the bucket of honey that a Honey Bee can carry by setting its Obj_arg0 to 8 or 9.
OtaKingAdded back the files for Spicy King Kaliente who can be enabled by setting Obj_arg1 to true.
TwisterSanAdded the beige color file (White.brk) to the object's archive so that it can be used on the object (Obj_arg1 set to true).
TeresaChiefAdded a proper entry to ObjNameTable so that the object can be placed in a level.
TrickRabbitGhostSame as above. The object can be placed in a level now without problems.

Bugfixes

When the first game was being developed into Super Mario Galaxy 2, several new bugs and mistakes found its way into the final game. Project Template provides fixes for the following bugs.

Cleaned up Data Files

Some data files were edited to remove unused, useless and duplicate data to save important memory space. Additionally, all the files include the proper data for the newly added objects. The following data files have been edited:
