Are you a fan of the Mario Kart series? Do you have fond memories of playing Mario Kart Double Dash on the Gamecube?
Or ever feel like you’d want to design your own tracks for it?
Well if so, you’re in luck! Because over at Super Mario World Central, they’re holding the biannual Creativity Convention, a virtual event where hackers, modders and other game developers can share their work with others.
And one of today’s new projects is DouBOL Dash. A track editor designed specifically for editing Mario Kart Double Dash tracks and arenas. Here are some nice screenshots showing the editor in action, as well as the features you can use:
Yeah I know. It’s a tad technical, at least compared to the likes of Lunar Magic or Super Mario Bros X. But either way, it’s a really cool tool, and it lets you not only set up the track geometry and preview banners, but also do things like specify what path moving characters and objects should take. Like say, the seagulls in the background of Peach Beach or Daisy Cruiser. Or the rocks from DK Mountain.
It also has the ability to view models for any object used on the track, check for updates and all kinds of other neat stuff.
So if you want to make your own Mario Kart Double Dash tracks, check out the topic by tool creator Shibboleet on SMW Central or view the files for the tool on GitHub today. And then maybe show us some of your work afterwards!
