My critics to the Ad-on "Phoenix" by CrystalTheEevee

Postby tlbomb » 10 Apr 2021, 19:11

Hello,
I didn't find any forum to complain about add-ons, so I'll write my text here.
As you might see in the title, this text will be a little more serious than my others.
I always download new add-ons on STK, to see if I want to keep them or not. Recently, that hype of real looking cars started. I was amazed by that hype, because I always dreamed of "real" car add-ons for STK. I think it was CrystalDaEevee (I am not sure if CrystalDaEevee and CrystalTheEevee are the same) who started all that. Today, I looked for new add-ons on STK, and I've found two, "Phoenix" among them. I downloaded both.

Now to the actual criticisms for "Phoenix":
-the rear window looks weird:
actually, it looks a little dented, if you regard it from the side, but that isn't so bad since you don't see the karts from the side anyway.
-the light effects:
That is not so bad either, because this could be your first kart, next time please make the Kart more sensitive to ambient light effects.

And now, the most important criticism:
-The Confederate-flag on the cowl.
Because of its backstory (In 1861, 13 States and 1 Territory (Arizona-Territory, Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas, Kentucky, Missouri, Virginia, Louisiana and Georgia) separated from the USA and found the CSA (Confederate States of America) the major reason for this split was the abolishment of slavery in the whole USA. The CSA wanted to keep on slaving people. After that secession, the American Civil war started. The war ended in 1865, with the Confederate being defeated. During the war, the CSA used the North-Virginian's Army flag as their naval ensign, which went down in history as the "Confederate-Flag") the Confederate flag is directly connected with almost incomparable racism, exploitation and hate.
After Hopefully making clear that this flag is a symbol of cruelty and hate, I please you, CrystalTheEevee, to remove the flag on the cowl.

If you noticed any historical or ethical mistakes please correct me and remember to do it as friendly and respectful as I did.
Good Night

Hey there.
I have replaced the flag with a plain carbon hood. Hope that sorts stuff.
The windows are bent because well, it's a beaten up car theme ^^

Btw, could you make a VW Beetle-themed kart for STK? I'd love that, because my uncle drives one.
(And yes, I know the cruel backstory of the car, but it now is a symbol of pacifism, freedom AND still looks cute, right?)

Why don't you give it a shot? :) Free VW Beetle models are around: https://clara.io/view/d059724b-581e-417 ... a41cddd990

Well.... That could turn out into a catastrophe because it would be my first Kart, but I will try my best ;)

You could put bugs in the VW and it could become an official kart. Bugs are an essential part of free software :D

Oh, and I thought that you would rather put a "defeat device" into a VW. :p

... but as an Official Kart, It's just fine! Maybe the driver could be Bugzilla.

Tribute to ChrystalTheEevee

Postby tlbomb » 12 Oct 2021, 14:18

Hi
Chrystal, if you read this;
Thank you for adding the Beetle and all the others to STK :)
You were a machine in modelling karts for the past months, and I don't even know how you always get them so realistic :shock: .
These new, actually existing cars made the game much cooler to play and especially made the rather funny STK almost feel like a serious racing game like TORCS.
Thank you for doing this! :D
