Overview

This version is created by Guilmon. Paratroopa's model was created by adding the wings from the Blue Shell item and putting them on Koopa Troopa's back. Koopa Troopa already had bones for wings but nothing was attached to them previously.

In 2019, TravixMan released an update the author's permission. His update includes an optimized model of 864 polygons, CPU and LOD models, award and character select screen models and custom animations, more kart recolors with a new emblem, and character select screen and minimap icons. Parabones is also included as an alternate costume.

Credits

  • Nano 51, for the character select screen animations in v1.0 onward.

Trivia

TravixMan released v1.0 Hotfix as a bonus mod after his retirement. He thought the wings for Paratroopa looked dark in v1.0 and wanted to make them brighter, similar to Parabones. He also felt that Parabones' eyes were too bright, so he copied the original material and shader from Dry Bones.
