L is real 2401
Not only does this appear in Super Mario 64

But this texture also appears in Ocarina of Time (Dodongos Cavern)

RE: L is real 2401
Woah! That's pretty neat! Thanks for pointing that out! Do you think there's a chance it got used any place else?

RE: L is real 2401
It says "Eternal Star". It's only also in Ocarina of Time because OoT used the same engine as Mario 64.

RE: L is real 2401
What if... Ocarina of Time happens millenia after Super Mario 64 and that this sign is all that remains of the past civilisation

I don't really know what you're going with here, Super Mario and OOT uses the same engine, and therefore the same textures pretty much.

I thought this was going to be a "luigi is in Mario 64 thread"

Exactly. Both games were developed at the same time, it's not surprise that instead of creating a "plaque texture" for both, they make one and use it for both.

actually, this is thought to say that luigi is real in PAPER mario 64, because this is the release date of it.

RE: L is real 2401
But it's nothing but a texture?

That's like making one about the texture in the book in Super Mario Sunshine, it's not interesting.

This is interesting

No one knows why this was in the games files.

It's a joke without a punch line. It's literally nothing.

What's interesting is that it was placed in both Mario 64 and Zelda OoT. (I understand it's the same engine but is there even a grass or sky texture reused in Oot? Seems this would have been the only surviving piece.) Which means there was a good chance it has meaning, maybe an inside joke.. who knows. It's also interesting to think about what it may have said when it was of higher resolution. as people can't seem to agree. Obviously some of us find it interesting so it's worth a post. There isn't a downside so having more updates more often.

Also I already posted that picture.

2 months on. Yeah the reason I posted this is to really show why I felt L is real 2401 is meaningless. It's just a texture with no meaning and was used in games outside of SM64

@retrolinkx
Is that the final concept art for Sonic '06?
