PLEASE READ THE DISCLAIMERS BEFORE YOU ASK ANYTHING, THIS IS NOT V2



Sonic Robo Blast 2 Kart Version 1.X has been around for some time. Many maps have been ironed out in terms of paths by patches from Kart Krew, and have had lots of work go into polishing them from developers and strong routes from players.

At times, this has resulted in some unfortunate exploits and adverse elements being abused and some tracks seeing the short end of the stick in netgames, despite the work that has been put into them from their mapmakers and players. What you see here is Kart Rev (short for Kart Revision), the product of several individuals coming together to make a base maps modification that strives to improve the netgames experience for Kart Version 1.3 in as objective of a manner as possible.

This is a major modification to the base game maps of Sonic Robo Blast 2 Kart Version 1.3. A few disclaimers:
Spoiler: Disclaimers
  • This is not V2, nor is this a V1.2, V1.2.1, etc. While many individuals, including a handful of developers, have provided comments or assisted in feedback for this modification, this should not be viewed as the work of Kart Krew and only as the changes of the individuals listed below. All changes and modifications seen here were done without knowledge of V2 that is not available to the public (and in most cases were not considered as V2's ecosystem will be different from V1.X's), so any changes you see here may or may not (most likely the latter!) will be present in V2 as it runs on a different gameplay loop that this modification does not balance for. Feedback for this modification should not go to Kart Krew.
  • This does not move maps into Map Hell that are existing within the Normal Map rotation, or vice versa. However, maps in both pools have seen changes.
  • The primary purpose of this modification is to be run on Hard or Normal Speed netgames, with more elements being balanced towards Hard Speed. While changes were accounted for all speeds, please keep this in mind.
  • This is not RA-compatible, nor is it made with speedrunning in mind as several cuts that are utilized in “Any%” speedruns are removed.
  • No Luas, scripts or core game mechanics are changed. However, some modifications were considered with respect to changes made here (IE: KartMP, Haste).
  • All edited maps have updated subtitles that include “Rev”, have updated map thumbnails and feature a changed lap banner (if they had one prior) to make it clear to players.
  • This modification does not touch the Community or SMK cups. These maps were observed in a different sphere due to the nature of their origins.
  • Outside of a single new texture, utilized for map banners, no new music, gfx, or things were added. Changes were intended to fit in as well as possible within SRB2Kart’s basic canvas. Please do note that Rev does update some musicdefs, so you would want to load this before any music modifications.
  • 46 maps in total have been changed in the Version 1.3.X series (v1.3.X): 37 from the Normal Map rotation, and 9 from the Hell Map rotation. No Battle maps have been changed.
  • If you are reporting a bug, please check Sonic Robo Blast 2 Kart Version 1.1 before posting. A texture that seems misaligned may be a base game element, or a tear in the sky that doesn’t look like a texture may just be a renderer quirk. Edge case elements, such as base game change suggestions, are welcome.

See below post, but this statement still applies.

As a word from here on out... updates will happen much less frequently. I am in the process of pushing this project into a formal maintenance mode so I can focus my time into other projects. While I do not currently have an immediate timeline for sunsetting the project just yet, the majority of what I have set out to do has been completed. Thank you for supporting Kart Rev.

Reverted to 1.3.10. Evidently despite some testing on my end it seems Hidden Maps are getting pushed to main rotation. I do not currently have the time to fix this so I will instead just rollback to the previous version and take a look at sometime in the future.
