Haven't got enough from SRB2Kart? Doesn't feel like you have played enough tracks? Want to Record Attack some more? Well, not sure how you will fill your pockets for what you want, but here's something for you, kart racer, and something more for you, record attacker:
ARCADEPAK!



...The original description with 1.3 update is below there; as some stuff will need some readjusting later on (namely the ghosts, which could be a bit inaccurate in some slightly modified sections of certain tracks; and entirely missing for the new track). However, this 1.4 update not only applies some pending fixes, but also adds a whole new track: Tricolored Space Zone!

That said, there were some tweaks that I finally applied (and detailed v1.35 changelog after a while), and of course I will try to finish the polish in this update as time goes on. Feel free to let me know about any new feedback regarding old and new tracks!


1.3 description
Spoiler:

If you have been around since the release of SRB2Kart, you should know how (relatively) easy it is to make tracks, but not so much to make them quality. And you should also known that I have made some few tracks here and then in the past, including Dinosaur Canyon (Daytona USA) and Big Forest (Virtua Racing). Well, for those that have been waiting for more, and after my arrival from being absent 3 months ago, here's what you wanted! 5 tracks (maybe) for you to sink your teeth, all with ghosts for Record Attacking; some new ones, and some returning from my previous follies.

While this pak had already been released some beginning December, the new 1.3 update packs some neat stuff in store, including an addition to the previously 4-track lineup:
Big Forest has returned big time! The beginner course from Virtua Racing, that I previously released standalone back in April 2019, was given an update with higher accuracy to source, decoration additions, and the addition of what everyone expected last time...MORE TREES!
...oh yeah, and the ferris wheel is (mostly) in now :3

Several bugfixes and visual improvements to the other tracks have been done too, and on top of that, there's now the aforementioned Record Attack ghosts (absent in the initial release), featuring Yoshi, Pilzkopf, Star, myself, and MrNin. The Thunder-colored Sonic ghosts are my first recorded attempts, while the black Sonic/Metal Sonic ones are the ghosts I grinded my best >:3
And then there's MrNin ghosts, which defeated all of my aforementioned ghosts...but summing it up, there's an variety of ghosts, ranging from intermediate skill to real tough, so good luck for you all speedrunners!

I want to thank everyone on this community for such awesome support and creations, as well as the SRB2 Staff and KartKrew for their excellent gems that are their games; and HUGE thanks to the fellas that submitted their ghosts for this release. I hope you enjoy playing this as much as I did (and hopefully much more as I did to get unstuck during this trip).

Until the next update!


Current maplist:
Spoiler:



Hidden Map - MAPE0
A blast from the past? Maybe. Is it new from this update? Actually yes. Are we going to know what it is? Not if you don't find it out yourself.
Thanks to Bluegen for the assistance with this one.

MAPE1 - Virtua Circuit Zone:
A 5-lap circuit inspired by the Model 1 and 32X games, with flat colors used for the style of this short but speedy track. Watch out for the colored glowing pads, as green ones are boosters, yellows and reds are springs, and blacks are hazards!

MAPE2 - Snowdust Valley Zone:
Jump over the valley, drift near the drop, and fly over a fan-filled pit in this snowy mountain; now filled with trees overwatching your race!

MAPE3 - Mount Acres Circuit Short:
This track returns from the past in ArcadePak, bringing some new few additions, but the same fun layout as before!

MAPE5 - Polychrome Polygon Zone:
Flat colors are back, and this time with a vengeance: This unique track, filled with floating cubes and crystals has an alluring artstyle and many speed-heated turns; and with items it gets much more hectic! Will you take it safe over the upper path to lob spikeballs at others? Or will you go through the lower path for faster times?

MAPE6 - Tricolored Space Zone:
Looks like space, but more polygons and 5-lap goodness! Make sure to stay on track, take the closest turns and make the best of all the jumps you can find!

MAPEB - Big Forest
The beginner course from Virtua Racing once again shines with its polygonal trees, mountains, and a nice view over the lake from the bridge. After you are done racing around, check out the ferris wheel!

Heads up about that I replaced the PK3 with an RAR compressed WAD since I had been reported about how the PK3 for some reason didn't add any maps.

I really like the design for these stages, it makes me wish more people knew about this map pack. Though I should point out in Snowdust Valley you can't get over the gap at the beginning if you are in the shrink effect. Which will make you loop back to the beginning until shrink wears off. Just a little heads up for those that forget to disable shrink when playing Srb2 Kart.
