WARNING!
Mission Mode was an unfinished mode found in the game's code. However, due to the fact that it was replaced with competitions some time in development, any time you finish a mission it will upload the time to the Wiimmfi servers. All evidence points to rocket start missions causing this issue, which in Variety Pack's case is mission 1-1. Please do NOT play Mission Mode on a license that you use to do Wiimmfi competitions; otherwise, you will be banned.
Watch out for items in your My Stuff folder (if it's enabled), as Variety Pack does feature modified menus, text and Common.szs. If you find anything in your My Stuff folder that may disrupt gameplay and other things, remove the files or disable My Stuff entirely.

Overview

The Variety Pack is a custom track distribution that features 112 custom tracks (32 in the demo and Variety Pack Lite), ranging from difficult to "meme"-like, to even some that are in CTGP Revolution (hence the name "variety"). The pack is owned by Tombwarrior and is developed by Bladestorm227, Skipper93653, MrFib, Diamond, JαmεςH, AlphaFlame, and Bearably. The Great Role Reversal is present in all modes except Mission Mode.

Frantic Mode

In v1.0 – v1.2, Frantic Mode was introduced as a new mode that uses the ItemSlotTable.slt in every track's SZS file from Electric Shredder. This means that you can get any item in any position, but powerful items have a higher chance of appearing.

From v1.21 onward, Frantic Mode got reworked so that it uses ItemSlot.bin in the Common.szs. However, the chances of getting any item is completely equal. Thunder Clouds were removed entirely and you can no longer get the POW Block in 1st place, making it slightly more balanced.

In v1.4, the mode was renamed to "Chaotic Mode".

Blue Shell Showdown

Introduced in v1.3, a new mode called Blue Shell Showdown was added, which heavily increases the probability of Blue Shells being received from the item roulette, while every other item has been revoked of its probability or have been made for the lower positions only. The ItemSlot.bin has been modified to give first place dodge items (such as Mushrooms or Stars), which have obviously been balanced depending on their power. Like in normal gameplay, Blue Shells will only appear after 30 seconds into the race.

Although it was fixed in v1.31, there was previously a side effect in this mode that caused objects on certain custom tracks to turn invisible, but still keeping their collision.

Track Request

If you would like to suggest a new track for v2.0, head to the track wishlist and add the track you would like to see, in v2.0, to the list.

If you want an existing track to be removed for v2.0, head to the removed tracks list and add the track to be removed.
