Overview

Calidae Desert is a custom track made by Björn. It is well known for originally featuring textures that made it look like it was set in a grassland rather than a desert, and for displaying one of the most extreme examples of an unwanted (flickering) effect in a custom track, caused by underscaled textures. RC2.1 adds more desert-like textures. It features several pyramids and a small section of buildings for unknown purposes, with a wide variety of off-road sections for some nice mushroom shortcuts.

The name "Calidae" actually comes from the Latin word "Calidus", meaning warm/hot, which makes this the second track to use a Latin word in its name (with the first being Incendia Castle). The track author chose to use the feminine derivative rather than the masculine "Calidi", presumably due to the chosen name sounding better when paired with a desert.
