Hi! I'm Rex. I kinda just exist, I can't think of much interesting to say about myself, and prefer being in the shadows rather than the spotlight. The main types of mods I create are Custom Tracks, as I have a decent amount of experience in making them when it comes to the more technical side of them, though I tend to make them for my own enjoyment, and not really any serious reasons. I also don't release them all too regularly, as I'm not always motivated to work on things regarding them.

Though I release them publicly here on this wiki, my tracks are likely not ideal for most people, particularly if you have high standards with visuals. I don't really strive for perfection with or consistency between my tracks, especially with the modeling and visuals, I mainly just try and make what I'm personally content with. What I'm content with visually is definitely below what others may see as "good" and is more like what was good several years ago, I tend to care more about the gameplay, function, and sometimes the charm when it comes to tracks I make, as well as tracks made by others. And, while it is an aspect of my tracks I care about more, the way I like how things in them play may not be your cup of tea either. If you're looking for good tracks on the visuals front, I recommend you check out many of the other talented creators and their creations on this wiki instead! There is some great work out here. I just hope that, if you're reading this and have seen my tracks (whether you like them or not), you can at least respect that I do this as a hobby, and it's not anything I'm striving to be really good at.

If you are interested in seeing some of my thoughts and extra little information about the new mods I release, check out my mod blog page.
I also plan to have a link to a folder on this page in the far future, containing not only mods I've released here, but also most of my other mods that are too small-scale to upload to this wiki. (BRSTMs I've made, any model or texture modifications outside of CTs/THs, etc.) I'll put the link for it here once it's ready!

Update Permissions & Updates I've made to other's tracks

If you want to ask me questions that are related to any of the mods I've published on here, you're free to ask on my user talk page. I have a Discord account, but I'm not very confident in talking with people I'm unfamiliar with directly, so I would prefer you use the talk page or any other more public manor if we've never interacted before. If you know what my Discord account is, feel free to ask me about stuff in a server I'm in (such as the public Tockdom one from the main page, or DM me if you have me added), instead of using the talk page.

If you want to update any of my Custom Tracks: please contact me before you do anything if possible, and I'll let you know what I'm fine with! I'll most likely be fine with you updating anything, as long as the focus is on bug fixes or such, and you don't majorly change anything about the visuals or gameplay. If an update is not really a bug fix and more for your own or a distribution's preferences, I would appreciate the update being labeled as an alternate or distribution specific version. (ex. v1.0-alt, v1.0.mkw) Please respect my wishes for aspects of my tracks I do not want altered, in case I reject something from being done!

I will sometimes update tracks made by others, usually for minor quality of life fixes with the visuals or functioning of them, though sometimes I'll do more major updates that update several aspects of the track. In most cases I'll probably not be taking requests for updating tracks, whether you're the original author or not. Unless you've already stated you're fine with updates to anything you've made on your user page, I will likely be contacting you first if I wish to update anything you've made and if you've been active in the community. I tend to have more motivation for doing these updates compared to working on my own tracks, as I feel I excel at the file stuff when it comes to making tracks much more than modeling stuff, so at times I'll probably be releasing updates to my tracks and other's tracks more often than releasing new tracks.

User Link

Some of the mods I've released are exempt from my user link. I used to exclude the ones I liked less, but now I only exclude ones that I feel were kinda useless to release in retrospect and didn't put much effort into. The mods listed in each category are sorted by when they were first created or released, with a few exceptions. The "contributions" section of the user link mainly consists of tracks where I only worked on parts of the model for, and/or some of the track's files.
