Some Crawla may be "OK" with having their precious treads removed, replacing them with "Regulation Wheels".

This Crawla, however, goes against all regulations, driving proud with his incredibly heavy tank treads intact, allowing him to drive over Grass, Dirt, Sand, or Snow, without being impeded.

This however, comes at the cost of having rather stiff drifting. But in the end, it is totally worth it.

Spoiler: Some Notes
While the S_SKIN for this Racer gives a weight of 9, the Lua script included in the Wad sets this to a Weight of 17, which, due to the quirks of Kart's code, is the exact amount that negates the effects of Offroad Sectors.

However, there are some bugs that come about from this. There exists no engine type for a character with a weight so great, resulting in Sound Errors. I have managed to work around this by replacing the sound for a Thok, the fallback sound, but this means that the engine will not adjust in pitch when driving fast or slow.

Also, the Offroad mechanic doesn't work on all stages. Some examples include KKR Ganbare Dochu, and Aurora Atoll. This is due to the fact that the offroad sections in these stages use a tagged friction linedef, which has different behavior from the Offroad Sector Effect. Its not something I can fix, unfortunately.

Lastly, the sounds that the Crawla makes are literally just Metal Sonic's. No Speak and Spells here.

Spoiler: Changelog

v1: Initial Release
v1b: Hotfix to prevent error message when spectating.

Something I want to note: This character was built using periwinkle as the base. But I actually ended up tweaking a single shade of green later on, so that, while it still results in the same color via periwinkle, it ends up looking good with colors such as lavender.

Unfortunately, this doesn't have a color that turns it exactly into a red crawla: you will always be lighter, darker, or oranger.

Released a quick hotfix to prevent error messages from popping up when spectating.

He seems to be Top Tier by the looks of it.
It's been 5 years since 2.1 came out.
Also, DO NOT look into my oldest posts. They now make me cringe like and YouTuber watching its very first video.

Unfortunately, the latest update has Broken Offroad, due to the more intense offroad sections.

If anyone knows how to fix that, send me the lua code to do so.
