Also, looking at the commit messages it seems like STK is available for iOS, but isn't on the store. How would you compile it from source?

The castle in the background is just decoration. Story Mode officially ends when Nolok has been defeated, but the game has more to offer.

Here are some things you can do (some have already been mentioned, I just summarize):

Core singleplayer gameplay:
1) Complete all Story Mode challenges on a higher difficulty to get better trophies and to increase your score. You might unlock a few more things if you haven't already
2) Unlock the SuperTux difficulty level and complete all challenges on SuperTux difficulty to truly master the Story Mode
3) Win all achievements
4) Find all eggs. Do this by playing egg hunt mode on each track on each difficulty from Novice to Expert (the eggs are placed differently depending on difficulty. Don't bother with SuperTux, it's the same as Expert in egg hunt). Oddly, this doesn't give you anything, not even an achievement.

Multiplayer:
7) Play against a friend at home
8) Play online for fun
9) Play online on ranked servers and get a high ranking score

Extended singleplayer gameplay:
10) Beat the computer players in each battle arena
11) Explore the other game modes, many of those are not featured in Story Mode
12) Download some add-on tracks and try to win races on them. The best add-on track is Lost Chasm by rubberduck.
13) Start a crazy long random grand prix and win

Wuzzy {l Wrote}:Extended singleplayer gameplay:

I've recently discovered how easy it is to find and adjust the config files, so I've decided to try crazy self-made modes such as racing 99 other karts and playing at 200% engine power. It's surreal when you overtake a basketball! Going from 99th to top-10 in 3 laps is a pretty difficult challenge on its own simply because of how crazy it gets in the middle.

Can you provide a reference? I'd like to do this since I can't connect to servers (even with Benau's new patch at https://github.com/supertuxkart/stk-code/tree/test_ipv6)

Sure. These are done by just editing config files in the data folder. They are well commented so feel free to experiment! Just keep a backup of the original if you want to change back.

Super speed:
video clip: sikke.fl
In 'stk_config.xml', replace

<engine power="950" max-speed="25" generic-max-speed="25" brake-factor="15"
with
<engine power="2000" max-speed="250" generic-max-speed="250" brake-factor="15"

99 karts:
video of 50 karts: sikke.fl
[note: will crash on Cocoa Temple normal direction if more than 64 players, because it will try and spawn you over that river!]

In 'stk_config.xml', replace

<karts max-number="20"/>
with
<karts max-number="100"/>

Ok, thanks! I just tried this (the data folder on Linux STK is ~/.config/supertuxkart/config-0-xx and it works great. I also saw the last tip on https://supertuxkart.net/FAQ which said that players.xml can be used to cheat ;)

Oh and Wuzzy - you also develop STK? I know you develop MineClone2 for Minetest - very useful
