Hi! I'm Rex, I kinda just exist, a lot of the stuff I've done in this community is more minor and behind the scenes sort of stuff. I can't think of many interesting general things to say about myself, and prefer being in the shadows rather than the spotlight. I've made multiple types of mods for MKW, but I mainly create Custom Tracks and BRSTMs, as I've made those most frequently and am used to it. I tend to make mods for creative outlets and/or my own use, and not really for any serious reasons. I'm not always motivated to work on things regarding them, so don't expect consistency in the rate I work on/release things. I also have been playing the game itself online semi-regularly, mainly CTWWs on various CT packs.

I have more inspiration towards gameplay and small theming details than how my tracks look. What I'm content with visually is definitely below what others with higher standards may see as "good". I'll usually end up using Nintendo track textures in my tracks, since I don't mind how often they're used when it comes to more casual tracks, and I think they look fine. If you're looking for good tracks on the visuals side of things, I recommend you check out many of the other talented creators and their creations on this wiki instead! There are some great custom tracks out here, whether you're looking for good visuals or good gameplay. If you're reading this and have seen my tracks (whether you like them or not), I hope you can at least respect that making my tracks look pretty is not a priority to me. It'll help me be more confident in putting my work out in the first place :)

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.
If you are curious about what I think of the mods I've released and the potential of me deciding to update them, check out my mod status page. (coming soon)
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.) Don't expect it any time soon since I haven't put much work towards uploading things to it yet, but 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 any questions that are related to any of the mods I've published on here, you're free to either ask on my user talk page, or ping me in the Tockdom server, CT Jams server, or CTGP Track Testers server. I'm not very confident in talking with people I'm unfamiliar with directly, so if we've never interacted before, I would prefer you ask publicly rather than in direct messaging.

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 likely be fine with you updating anything, as long as it fixes bugs 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 and/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, as I usually just do these whenever I feel like it. Unless you've already stated you're fine with updates to anything you've made on your user page and if you've been active in the community, I will likely be contacting you first if I wish to update anything you've made. 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 may 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.
