fracture {l Wrote}:An urban circuit would be a good idea for a track. Ever since I first played this game I've been waiting for a track with actual traffic similar to N64 Toad's Turnpike, where players must dodge the cars (and in reverse mode, the cars come towards you). I'm assuming the reason this hasn't happened yet is because of limitations with the game's engine? Can it not display that many moving vehicles?

It can, and a couple of add-ons do. Voxel Village does, LM Track has a small section with a moving car and Black Forest has a moving train. The game allows you to animate an object like that and for that object to crash your kart. I think it's more that not many artists made tracks that required them or thought about adding them.
An urban track would be nice for a change, I always loved the atmosphere created by City Lights and some of it's street-circuit dynamics.


Imagine City Lights or Beam Runner with outstanding graphics and several moving cars as obstacles that the player must constantly avoid. City Lights in reverse mode would become one of the hardest tracks ever created, and Beam Runner wouldn't be one of the top 5 easiest addons tracks.

I already thought a lot about designing an track with moving obstacles.
But the real problem is that the AI karts wouldn't try to avoid the moving obstacles and for that reason such a track wouldn't be fun offline, because the AIs wouldn't be fast at all.

That's a good point. I wonder if it would be possible in the future for devs to make a dodge/repel property for objects so that AI will try to avoid it, like they do for bowling balls or bananas.

Hello,

on December 29th our son will be 10 years old.

One of his most important wishes is to have a driving Lynx in STK, for example like this:

If anyone is able to create such a lovely animal our son would be very happy :-)

Thanks to all people who develop STK and add-ons!

Peter

I think there should be a track located in a basque-themed mountain village.
With worst regards you can think of... No, I was just sarcastic *cough*
With BEST regards,

Take wheels off karts to function as hovercraft - easy example bike like craft, -- mousekart already made.
then make waterpark with turbo slide, jumps, and rings in air - held up by drones...
maybe do backflip in air... frontflip, one leg, superman, practice safety in real life

I know that Crystal maybe already works on it this, but I think there should be an Add-on based on the 1960s VW Beetle.

So...anyone knows about West Lake in Hanoi, Vietnam? I think that'd be a great and very hard track to make, but it worth. Since it's...to big, IMHO.

There is a little bug at the original track "Volcano Island". I was driving a race in the opposite direction. The ranking becomes funny two corners in front of the crossover, so at the end of a lap. Many opponents start to stack on top of each other (in the ranking). When they approach the finish line, the ranking becomes normal, but if that happens on the last lap, their times will be all equal (calculated). Probably the game doesn't recognise the karts for a short time?

I would like to critisize the two addon tracks "High in the Sky" and "Lake Ikeal" for having boost pads / lanes that become visible too late. Okay, I'm playing this with second-lowest graphical settings on a mini-desktop computer (if that makes a difference in this case). The boost symbols are colourful when standing next to them, but they simply appear too late, when driving towards them. There should be a more visible texture on the ground below the boosts. Maybe make the ground a little bit darker for example.
The rest of these two tracks is well made!
