New Tracks

Overview

This list is for new tracks that have not yet been added to CTGP-R. Please indicate the desired track and music slots in the proper fields. All tracks will be put through the track testing process by the CTGP Track Council and the CTGP Track Testing Server. The decision to accept or reject a track lies solely with the CTGP Track Council, with MrBean35000vr having the last word about tracks.

To submit a track, please put the track in the "Unreviewed Tracks" table, and make sure to give it the "Unreviewed" tag, not the "Under Review" tag. Tracks that are labeled as Under Review have been noticed by the CTGP Track Council and have been put in their personal list of tracks to review. If a track is updated while still in the testing process, feel free to put the track back in the section that it was originally in, but make sure to indicate that it was updated. Do NOT re-submit a track version that was already submitted previously. You may ONLY submit a track if you are directly credited as an author or designer of said track. If you submit a track that you are not credited for, it will be removed.

Disclaimer
CTGP has bore witness to over a decade of new custom tracks, a period of time in which standards have continuously risen. For this reason, the modern-day selection process, run by us members of the CTGP Track Council, is intensive and relies upon many dedicated players engaging in extensive evaluations in order to judge and bugtest tracks.

Our mission is to introduce polished tracks to CTGP. We cannot dedicate these manhours into thoroughly detailing any issues with tracks that, at a mere first glance, blatantly do not meet our standards; our resources are best directed towards tracks that prove themselves as candidates with significant potential for CTGP. For this reason, our first priority is selecting these tracks, then followed by producing reports of thorough tests; if a track cannot pass the former, we have better things to do than perform the latter.
We, unfortunately, must reserve the right not to be obligated to treat all tracks equally.

As such, if any submitted track clearly does not meet the quality standard of modern-day CTGP tracks, it will therefore be moved to the Rejected Tracks table with the tag "Does not pass initial quality checks."

It should also be noted that the following list of tracks are unable to be submitted to CTGP for varying reasons:

  • New tracks from Mario Kart 8 (due to potential copyright).
    • Note: Retro remakes of tracks that appeared in Mario Kart 8 (e.x. SNES Donut Plains 3) are still eligible for review.
  • New tracks from Mario Kart Tour (due to potential copyright).
    • Note: Retro remakes of tracks that appeared in Mario Kart Tour (e.x. SNES Koopa Beach 2) are still eligible for review.
  • Texture hacks of current CTGP tracks, or texture hacks of previously reviewed / rejected tracks that do not fix the issue(s) given for the track.

Needs Fixes

Track Status Ver. Track Slot Music Slot Laps Speed Mod Notes
3DS DK Jungle (Skipper93653) Needs Fixes 1.1 N64 DK's Jungle Parkway N64 DK's Jungle Parkway 3 Major:
  • A few respawns are facing directly off the track.
  • The track is missing outro cameras.
  • The starting pole position is in the wrong direction (1st place should be on the right side).

Moderate:

  • The CPUs keep flinging themselves off of the track on the ramps leading up to the temple (since they aren't going straight forwards - path correction can't happen mid-air).
  • Very minor Position Tracking Bugs on the final turn. (Discord)
  • Moderate lighting flickers with the water and inside of the cave.
  • The waterfall after the mushroom has sandy dust particles at the bottom.
  • The water in the mushroom area has no splash FX.
  • Some people were asking if you could make the screaming pillar not spaz out 24/7, but that might be too much work to be worth it. This one is optional.
3DS Mario Circuit (ZPL) Needs Fixes 1.5 Mario Circuit Luigi Circuit 3 Major:
  • Bullet Bill shouldn't drop people onto the spiral.
  • Track is missing intro and outro cameras.
  • Some small KCL holes in the fence wall on the spiral; can probably be bumped through? (Gyazo)
  • OOB Checkpoint bug on the ramp after the spiral.

Moderate:

  • The road and the off-road are unwelded in some parts (you can see through the track).
3DS Rainbow Road (Bladestorm227) Needs Fixes 1.4.1 Rainbow Road Rainbow Road 3 Major:
  • Item route is missing on the meteor shortcut (after Saturn) - Bullet Bill will go backwards there.
  • Road texture / material is corrupt on Wii.
  • The respawn on the ramp around the planet should probably be fixed (I have no idea what this means - ask the testing discord for more info).
  • Waiting on completion of the spinning spiral.

Moderate:

  • Some of the ramps at the end are missing wall KCL (Twitch).
3DS Wario Shipyard (Skipper93653) Needs Fixes 1.0 Koopa Cape Wario's Gold Mine 3 May want to wait on custom object implementation so that the pipes (namely the cannon) can have properly-working currents.

Moderate:

  • Low tricks are super inconsistent/janky. Not sure how to fix.
  • Pipe currents are a bit too strong in some places (see above comment).
Alternative N64 Bowser's Castle Needs Fixes N64 Bowser's Castle N64 Bowser's Castle 3
  • The track as a whole is way too narrow in parts.
  • Issues with KCL, Item Routes, CPU Routes.
  • Generally, testers didn't like the blindness of the turn out of the courtyard & the hidden wall cut at the end. Too OP for backspam / traps.
Back to the 80s Needs Fixes Rainbow Road Rainbow Road 3 Major:
  • The ramp shortcut at the beginning is really overpowered (saves more done shroomless driving through the grass).
  • The elevated area on the second part of the shortcut mentioned above is entirely trickable (only the edges should be).
  • The ramp entering the first part of the shortcut mentioned above sends you into the ceiling most of the time.
  • Lots of various issues with KCL, Item Routes.
  • Some testers thought the textures were very low-quality, and they don't seam properly in places.
  • You can go through the fence in this specific spot and get permanently stuck OOB. (Gyazo)

Moderate:

  • There's some weird KCL on the corner of the first turn that's only present while in a Mega Mushroom. (Gyazo)
Beagle Plains Needs Fixes DS Peach Gardens DS Peach Gardens 3
  • Lag and PTBs all over the place
  • Bill route might've tried to take cut that was blocked off
Bowser's Lava Lair Needs Fixes 1.7 Bowser's Castle Bowser's Castle 3
  • The rail at the end after the last few ramps has an invisible KCL at the end of it (Discord)
  • Camera glitch if you fall short of the upper path, might not be fixable unless the path gets raised or something. This isn't really that big of an issue
  • The shortcut you take while small can be very precisely done with the Honeycoupe, not sure if this was intentional or not
  • The outro cameras are messed up, possibly due to an outdated Wiimm's Tools function that has scaling issues on player based cameras
Christmas Wish Needs Fixes DK Summit DK Summit 3
  • The whole track should be brighter and/or higher contrast, and should be upscaled.
  • Some of the road and off-road is too hard to distinguish between.
  • Direction in the underwater section is confusing. (Add arrows?)
  • The item box on the beginning present shortcut should be removed.
Evening Harbor Needs Fixes Daisy Circuit DS Delfino Square 3
  • A lot of the shortcuts in the track are too overpowered.
  • The diagonal stretch of road between the last two turns should be removed.
Flooded Cavern Needs Fixes 1.2 N64 DK's Jungle Parkway N64 DK's Jungle Parkway 3 Major:
  • Bullet Bill drops you into the water after the first split sometimes.
  • Bullet Bill goes over off-road on one of the split paths (it should just go on the normal road there).
  • Ramps at the end shouldn't be slow ramps.

Moderate:

  • If you fail the shortcut that skips the split paths, you should probably respawn where you fell off.
  • Some people think the track needs more visual decoration... but that's up to you.
GBA Yoshi Desert (MysterE99) Needs Fixes DS Desert Hills DS Desert Hills 3
  • The textures should be much less bright and/or desaturated.
  • The shortcut at the end should allow you to drive underwater, and the ramp shouldn't be a slow ramp. It should also respawn you at the beginning of the shortcut if you fail it and die.
  • The slippery road should be changed to normal road.
  • The giant advertisements in the background are extremely distracting, but this is obviously really minor.
  • The whole track could use a minor downscale.
GP Pac Mountain Needs Fixes Moo Moo Meadows 3
  • The edges of the road are too janky (send you too high when you go over them). Make them flat.
Kamek's Library Needs Fixes N64 Bowser's Castle DS Twilight House 3
  • Two jumps can't be made while small.
  • Issues with KCL, Item Routes.
  • Mini Turbo/Mushroom boost fire particles don't show up correctly.
Magmatic Sanctuary Needs Fixes 1.42 N64 Bowser's Castle N64 Bowser's Castle 3 Required:
  • Fire-snakes cannot come blindly out of the ground.
Moonlight Lake Needs Fixes 1.0 DS Peach Gardens DS Peach Gardens 3
  • Dock has bean corners
  • Strong reflection effect causes graphical glitches, is generally confusing to look at
  • The end of the dock is paper thin, can't even see it from underneath
  • Split path is misleading, the first arrow you see points the wrong way
  • Beach section has OoB problems
  • There are many blind turns, eapecially near the end
  • Checkpoints by the finish line do not extend far enough in either direction, will not count lap if too far to the right or against the wall on the left
Mushroom Fort Needs Fixes Mushroom Gorge Mushroom Gorge 3
  • Literally just needs one more set of items and an upscale... someone please get on this.
Mushroom Mountain Needs Fixes Mushroom Gorge Mushroom Gorge 3
  • "A lot of unnecessary boost panels and annoying shortcuts makes the track feel a lot worse than the current version of Peaks. The ending part, as well, has a lot of issues, and should probably be revised to be almost exactly like the current Peaks ending." L _ L
N.I.S.W.O.E. Desert Needs Fixes Dry Dry Ruins Dry Dry Ruins 3
Oil Rig Run Needs Fixes Wario's Gold Mine Bowser's Castle 3
  • Position bug at cannon.
  • Unfortunately, I think you have to flip the gingivitis sign around so it's only visible from the back side, just so it doesn't scare any of the kids away.
Pinewood Path Needs Fixes Beta.jhfr DS Delfino Square DS Delfino Square 2 Mandatory:
  • Bullet Bills can drop you into the vast majority of turns at bad angles

Suggested:

  • Intro cameras should be cleaned up if possible
  • Offroad sections could use nerfs
  • Some turns should be made easier for all vehicles to take
  • The track could use more graphical variety or be made shorter
Prison Block Needs Fixes N64 Bowser's Castle N64 Bowser's Castle 3
  • The part with the blind sloped turn before the loop should probably be less blind.
  • Lava animations don't loop properly.
  • The vertical loop is really janky and should be made more consistent if possible.
  • The finish line is really hard to see.
  • Bugs with Respawns, Position Tracking.
Puppy Play Park Needs Fixes 1.6 Moo Moo Meadows Moo Moo Meadows 3
  • The track has a lot of frame drops, making it laggy to play in 12 player rooms
  • There aren't enough item boxes around the track
Re-Volt Botanical Garden Needs Fixes DS Peach Gardens DS Peach Gardens 3
  • The fountain should be out-of-bounds.
  • KCL shadows should probably be added to where the current shadows are.
  • The track needs an upscale.
  • Sticky road should be added at the bridge and right before the bridge.
Saltwater Lake Needs Fixes N64 DK's Jungle Parkway N64 DK's Jungle Parkway 3
  • The ending kamikaze strat is way too OP. Put OOB here so you die before you get to the line. (Discord)
  • No item routes on the ramp shortcut (Discord)
Sarasa Kingdom Needs Fixes 1.1 Daisy Circuit Daisy Circuit 3
  • Texture glitches on the side of the castle (z-fighting)
  • The second turn has some lag that still needs to be reduced
Sky Beach Needs Fixes 2.0 Koopa Cape Koopa Cape 2
  • There are no shadows cast on your character at the beginning section of the track
  • The beginning can get pretty laggy in high player rooms
  • The first split path has blind ramps that can trip people up
  • The pipe has some very odd KCL, though it's just a minor issue
Sundown Streets Needs Fixes Daisy Circuit Daisy Circuit 3
  • Needs a visual upgrade from its current state
  • Bill routes can potentially drop you into cars
  • Both shortcuts are hard to do with bad drift vehicles like the Spear
  • The split path is a tad confusing, maybe adding some extra visuals to make it more pronounced would help
  • The shortcut at the end is easy to trap and can be done shroomless for free
Torrential Treetops Needs Fixes v1.0 N64 DK's Jungle Parkway N64 DK's Jungle Parkway 5 Mandatory:
  • There are too many item sets to the point where it is very easy to get the shroom glitch on lap 4. Removing one of the item sets near the boost panels is one option

Suggested:

  • Left route is faster by a bit (between 0.2 and 1.0s supposedly), try balancing them.
  • If possible, increase the poly count of the road to alleviate its bumpiness
  • Perhaps simplify the minimap to make it easier to read
Urban Gallery Needs Fixes Mario Circuit Coconut Mall 3 Generally speaking, before this can be added, all of the textures need to be reworked / polished to be better visually. Aside from that, here's everything (top 3 are subjective, bottom 3 are bugs).
  • All of the split routes are kinda unbalanced (e.x. the area at the end makes the main intended route obsolete)
  • The Chain Chomp at the end never poses any actual threat to the player, consider making it more threatening and evil
  • A lot of people found the giant trickable flower patch kind of annoying, as it's unexpected and is really out of the way to begin with; consider axing it? (this is super subjective obviously)
  • The sides of the escalators have weird KCL and can give you bonk-tricks sometimes
  • Some fault bullet bill routes on the escalators
  • Weird KCL bump when in a Mega Mushroom https://i.gyazo.com/c4b35de3e6e1dc389f70d71a24a339b3.gif
Water Village (Bear) Needs Fixes 3.5 DS Delfino Square DS Delfino Square 3 Required:
  • Checkpoints should be re-made. Multiple PTBs across the entire track. ([1])
Wii Tanks Needs Fixes 1.37 Moonview Highway GCN Cookie Land 3 Mandatory:
  • Needs better texture differentiation between surface types
  • Needs conditional out of bounds for the ramp section
  • Sticky road should be removed

Suggested:

  • Arrows could help, especially at the jump over the track which may send players into the cylinder
  • More decoration would be appreciated
X Circuit Needs Fixes Luigi Circuit Luigi Circuit 3
  • Textures and overall visuals need fairly large updates (author is already working on this).
  • The one bridge-ramp needs to be aligned properly.
    • The bridge-ramp should also be on the minimap if it's supposed to be the main route.
  • The mega box should be removed.

Rejected Tracks

Track Status Ver. Track Slot Music Slot Laps Speed Mod Notes
Escalator Action Rejected 1.0 Coconut Mall Coconut Mall 5 Does not pass initial quality checks, although it was very close to doing so. The concept is very unique, but the execution is not the best.
Question Block Castlegrounds Rejected 1.1 N64 Bowser Castle N64 Bowser Castle 3 Does not pass initial quality checks.
Nelsonside Valley Rejected 1.0 GCN DK Mountain GCN DK Mountain 5 With a very lukewarm reception, this track was found to be too unremarkable and dull. Its plain grassy theme is tired, and although short layouts can be fun, this one doesn't offer enough to make the track's inclusion worthwhile. In addition to these issues, a lack of polish was reported in the various floating KMP objects, poor UV mapping, and jarring seams between textures.
Rainbow Mountain Fortress Rejected 1.0 Rainbow Road Rainbow Road 3 Does not pass initial quality checks. This track crashes on not only console, but Dolphin too, indicating that you did not test the track at all before you submitted it. The issue is very easily identifiable and takes under a minute to correct. This is the second time you have submitted a track that doesn't work. Fixing the issue and loading the track in Noclip reveals that it looks like this. For multiple excruciatingly apparent reasons, we ask: Why would you submit this? Please refrain from submitting any further tracks to CTGP until your skills improve dramatically.
Ring of Fire Rejected 1.0 Grumble Volcano Grumble Volcano 3 The council was overwhelmingly neutral on this track, and the handful of members that did provide other votes leaned towards rejection. Bland, generic theming was cited often; this track was not found to stand out among the plethora of lava tracks in CTGP. The visuals appear primitive in certain aspects; the texture choices for the road and offroad are too close to solid colours. The ending gap cut is overpowered, and Bullet Bill routes are very prone to behaving poorly at the shortcuts and dropping players into offroad and pits. The potential is definitely there, but more work is needed; making an effort to differentiate the track's visuals from Grumble Volcano would certainly prove worthwhile.
Seaside Plains Rejected Beta 1 Luigi Circuit Koopa Cape 3 Does not pass initial quality checks.
Storage Unit Rejected 1.2 Coconut Mall Coconut Mall 3 Does not pass initial quality checks.

Tracks that were rejected before September 2020 are listed within the spoiler below. These tracks remain rejected; as usual, if resubmitting a track, it must have been updated to address listed issues, and the entry in this table is to be removed.
