μpak (known by some as Mupak) aims to be a pack of race maps that vary in difficulty, time, and theme.

Included Levels:
Spoiler:

A fairly unique figure-eight esque circuit, this map has you race down into a canyon, through
a collapsed mine, into a lush desert oasis, and back up over a dangerous bridge.


Begin in a small deserted village as you travel along a darkened freeway, arriving in the
glowing remains of a once bustling metropolis before you make your way back to the beginning.


Find yourself in a giant's world, only as tall as an RC car as you race throughout a massive
house, maneuver around loose cones and boxes, and scamper back to the finish line in
this fast-paced four lapper.


Race down into a river valley as you swerve to avoid trees, vines, and ancient ruins before
ascending a large cliff and catapulting off of a waterfall to retrace your steps.


Wind your way up an unusual vertically structured map as you race along this impromptu
go-kart track, swerving around stacks of tires, concrete pillars, and most importantly, other
racers in the claustrophobic interior of the parking garage.


Wind through the underbelly of a bustling metropolis, through quickly flowing water, and
along slick wet roads as you seek refuge from a raging storm underground.


Stuck plummeting in a continuous freefall on a fragmented racetrack, hop from island to island
across perilous gaps and over dilapidated bridges as you descend faster and faster into the
endless void.


Let the roar of the crowd wash over you as you tear up the arenacross's dirt and mud track,
your kart grinding along the metal reinforcements as you scream around the track, vying
desperately for first place, and the sweet sweet sponsorship money that comes with it.


Don't let the music fool you as you enter this mall, it's not a laid back place to spend your money.
Race along both tiers of the concrete behemoth as you skirt between chairs, speed up escalators, and avoid
the cursed sliding glass doors.


Skid precariously across a snowy, slippery mountain as bunker doors grind open before you, revealing an
intricate network of tunnels and structures perfect for racing through.

Surburban scramble is cool, so far I think people might have issue with the first turn since there's no indication. I think the final stretch could use another set of items. I really love the micro theme.

Eerie sands is really well done, I really like the theming and track layout. There are a ton of shortcuts, not sure if that's a good or bad thing but you could probably skip a lot of the level with a single super boost.

Awesome work, surburban scramble is definitely very fluid map now.

I really like the design of cascade glade, my friends got confused around the area right at the top of the waterfall, possibly with no confidence about jumping off. but the area is clearly marked where to go, maybe a ramp shaped rock or two at the top could be nice as a guide. I really love the waterfall jump, can't help but think of a certain other game

Quick critiques:
Freefall has an interesting low-gravity gimmick, but the springs don't respond well to speed items, sending you super far out (and I imagine a Grow paired with red drift could straight up send you off the edge). Song is a fitting frantic, but tonally doesn't feel like it matches to me. I want the burp at the start of it as a hornmod.

Parking Lot Panic is a solid enough tech course, but it does feel a little barren. Some unobtrusive cars in the actual parking lot would be a nice addition. There's sand offroad, but none of it really does anything besides act as a buffer in dead ends; maybe use some around a ramp to skip one of the turns? The rooftop jump could do with a boost or zipper pad, I feel.


Desert Rift: I like the track and the song is chill, but it doesn't feel like it quite fits the valley theme, 100% subjective.

suburban panic could use a lot more work in the house to make it look more like a house. paintings, sofas, maybe a car in the garage. the backyard is pretty bare as well

It's funny you say that, because the track was directly inspired by that song. The blue springs I purposefully put in front of angled road pieces and walls so that you COULDN'T just fly off the edge.

While honestly your critiques are very valid, I already drop to 26 fps on my own map, and I seriously don't feel like adding more complexity. Thanks, doom legacy!

Updated to V8!!!

The banner is finally filled, so I've met my goal of creating 10 (in my eyes) high quality SRB2Kart maps after around 3 months of work. I will likely take a small break and then come back and make some larger additions/changes to previous maps I've strayed away from before now.

Desert Rift got a(nother) huge overhaul this update, look forward to a hopefully similar level of polish on all tracks' encore modes in the next update!
