Overview

Blissful Block is custom track created by Strobenz. It is his first major release after Super Sky Courtyard in 2015, and the first one in the author's Chronocup, a fictional cup designed by the author. The track is set in a city superblock, and is the spiritual successor of Punch City 2 and District 65, featuring elements reminiscent of both of them. Racers have to follow a different route each lap, as is seen in Tour tracks from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Since there is support for several LE-CODE features in the track, LE-CODE distribution creators should follow the instructions from the LE-CODE Distribution FAQ to properly extract the modified ObjFlow.bin and GeoHitTableKart.bin files from the SZS file. Concretely, such features are as follows:

  • Car objects (car_body) and arrow walls (WLwallGC) now support AREAs 8 and 9 to allow them to be disabled when not in view.
  • Cars inside the housing area (kart_truck) do not act as walls when hit by players on Mega Mushroom.

Note that distributions that do not use LE-CODE will not be able to see these modifications, but the track will still be fully playable.

As of v1.3, the track is available in two versions: one set at dawn and the other set at sunset.
