Added my own take on expanded stages as an alternate version of the mod
Just a simple mod that organizes the SSS by series rather than by chronological Smash order.
There are two versions. One that only organizes the SSS and one that organizes the SSS and makes some extra normally unplayable stages playable.
Using the expanded stages version of the mod will make changes to your save data that Nintendo can detect since I gave the training stage and 4 platform FD their own MyMusic save slot. The non-expanded stages version shouldn't make any changes to your save data that Nintendo can detect, but I can't make any promises.
The stages in each series are also roughly organized by chronological game order, with some stages moved to be next to other related stages or moved for aesthetic reasons. The game series aren't really organized in any specific order beyond having series with the most stages (Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, etc.) near the top.
The bottom of the SSS is a bit messy since I didn't really know what to do with it. If you have any ideas on how to make it nicer, let me know in the comments
Additionally, included with this mod is a version that changes Yoshi's Island's MyMusic entry so it uses Mario series Music instead of Yoshi series Music so you can actually have more than 1 Mario World song play.
This edit is no longer included. But you can manually add the Mario World songs to the Yoshi playlist by following my tutorial here. https://gamebanana.com/tuts/12925
For the expanded stages version, you can select the alternate stages by holding "L" when selecting a stage.
The expanded stage list versions make the following changes to the SSS:
Adds the Training Stage as an additional stage
Makes the Button Test stage an "L" load for the Training stage
Adds the four platform Final Destination stage as an additional stage (With no UI currently)
Makes the Results Screen an "L" load for the four platform Final Destination
Makes the Spirit Board Stage an "L" load forFinal Destination
Makes the Online Waiting Battlefield an "L" load for Battlefield
Makes the Bonus Stage an "L" load for Big Battlefield
Makes Marx's Boss Stage an "L" load for Fountain of Dreams
Makes Ganon's Bass Stage an "L" load for Hyrule Castle 64
Makes Dracula's Boss Stage an "L" load for Dracula's Castle
Makes Rathalos' Boss Stage an "L" load for Gaur Plains
Makes Galleom's Boss Stage an "L" load for Shadow Moses Island
The mod is currently for version 3.0.0 and 3.0.1 and is precompressed Just pick the version you want and rename ui_stage_db.prc-0x106E40AB8-0x15A0 to 0x106E40AB8.prc for 3.0.0, or 0x106E40A98.prc for 3.0.1 and load like normal. The file location is root/ui/param/database/ui_stage_db.prc
Due to current modding limitations, I had to make a change for the extra stages that will most likely break the final battle in World of Light. So unload the mod before you play that fight. Also, because of those same limitations, I can't add proper UI for the four platform Final Destination.
You know what would be nice to have? Several music categories (aka different series music) being on one stage's MyMusic selection. Yoshi's Island (Melee) should be both a Mario stage AND a Yoshi stage.
