- New water-themed custom track
- Custom objects
I have made a proof-of-concept and 8 custom tracks, of which one is a remake.
|Editors used:||SZS Modifier|
GCN Baby Park
This has never been a real custom track. It was made to find out how the SZS Modifier works and how to make custom tracks with it. All left of it are a few pictures, it will never be released.
| Time per lap: 0:09 | Amount of versions: 1 (no releases)
|Editors used:||Paint, SZS Modifier|
This is my first major track, also the 6th one ever made. It looks a bit like Rainbow Road, although it is completely flat. There are jumps, bouncing roads and even walls.
| Timer per lap: 1:20 | Amount of versions: 4 (now RC3)
The only Paint track around that actually has a ceiling, although the cave looks more like an exploded box. This was another learning curve, for making the walls and more curved roads.
| Timer per lap: 0:45 | Amount of versions: 3 (now RC1)
|Editors used:||Paint, SZS Modifier|
Probably one of the hardest courses around, containing a bunch of mushrooms. It's based on MrBean35000vr's Mushroom Peaks. The course contains many jumps, corners with mushrooms and an impossible jump, which is the reason that it will never appear in a distribution.
| Timer per lap: 1:40 | Amount of versions: 2 (now RC1)
|Editors used:||Hex Editor Neo, Paint, SZS Modifier|
Car chaos track Cannon City, home of the cannons. Trying to avoid the cars is harder than on Moonview Highway, as the roads aren't as wide and they drive everywhere. The only part without them is a maze, with a bit chance of having an item chaos.
| Timer per lap: Unknown | Amount of versions: 4 (now RC2)
|Editors used:||SketchUp, SZS Modifier|
Shifting Sand Land
This is a track based on Super Mario 64's Desert stage. There are random pokeys, moving cannon activators and giant boxes giving small items.
In the pyramid there are no surprises but getting lost isn't that hard.
| Timer per lap: Around 3-4 mins, 1 lap. | Amount of versions: 5 (now RC2.2)
|Editors used:||KMP Modifier, SketchUp, SZS Modifier|
Cannon City II
| Time per lap: 1:30 | Amount of versions: 2
|Editors used:||3ds Max, BrawlBox, SketchUp|
3DS Rock Rock Mountain
| Time per lap: 0:50 | Amount of versions: 3
|Editors used:||Brawlbox, 3ds Max, KMP Modifier, Wiimms SZS Tools|
My final custom track, and my first completely made in 3ds Max. At the first stages of development it became clear that this would be my final track, due the upcoming MK8 and losing interests, which meant that this course should be outstanding in comparison to the other custom tracks at the time. If the design didn't fulfil this job, the criticism likely did.
| Time per lap: 1:30 | Amount of versions: 6
