Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Karts for STK

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Karts for STK

Postby Worldblender » 12 Feb 2019, 09:05

The fighters are back ... for more kart racing! Bigger, better than from two years ago, and racing in an all-new Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe) inspired kart design! Oh, all the DLC characters released so far are here for kart racing too!

Project repository (using Git): https://gitlab.com/Worldblender/ssbu-karts-for-stk

More information can be found at https://gitlab.com/Worldblender/ssbu-karts-for-stk/-/blob/master/README.md
Find the installation instructions at https://gitlab.com/Worldblender/ssbu-karts-for-stk/-/blob/master/INSTALL.md

The characters' licensing is certain to violate the spirit of open-source licensing, so that's why they will appear not on the add-ons website, but on the said Git repository. The karts are really fan creations made without any intention of monetization. However, there is a reusable resource in my repository, and that is the base kart used for all the characters. Unlike the rest of the karts, its licensing allows commercial use, as that doesn't contain any non-free copyrighted character. I decided to put in a little creativity into the base kart by using the Mandarava Motors flag on the back of it, to imply that that fictional company mass manufactures that kart model. In reality, I selected the kart model at https://blendswap.com/blend/12954; originally created by Diro.

Finally, I have a mega screenshot (it's quite huge, with a width of 3200px!) to show that my karts really are real (over 80 karts completed as of January 2021):

This repository will be continuously updated to include DLC characters, maintain compatibility with the latest STK versions, and to improve the karts' presentation (such as texture configuration and more animations). Please leave some feedback/or suggestions about this kart collection if you can, as I may use them in enhancing it.
This collection uses models and icons ripped direct from Smash Ultimate; a thread for the models themselves can be found at https://www.vg-resource.com/thread-34836.html. I also have vanilla character models at https://gitlab.com/Worldblender/smash-ultimate-models-exported.

That's pretty neat, good job.

Of course, I won't be surprised if you hear a bit of criticism from some other users due to this game being a Mario Kart alternative.

Good work :)

As you noted some characters are pretty small, but it's a great collection :)

Funny that you're using the same kart I am using for my work in progress kart :D

This kart collection is back, after two years! Bigger and better (but initially with less animation)! I have learned a lot since that time, making it better every chance I got during the remake.

This is the first released alpha version starting on this month. Remember, this is not the final version: it's a preview for a reason. All of the essential information and a mega screenshot can be found at the very first post in this thread.

Super cool kart collection!
For some reason, I have not yet seen this topic until now. I will download them in a few hours, at night (it's 46°C in Rio and my processor reached 54°C even with conditioning air on).

Great job.
