It's important that SuperTuxKart has a consistent object style throughout. In many ways, this page is analogous to the texture guidelines.

Style

Objects in SuperTuxKart should be realistic in size, shape, general form. However, objects should not be as detailed as in real life. Take a palm tree for example:

You can see that the the new palm tree model far more closely matches the shape of a real palm tree. However, it is not so detailed that it looks real. In short, maintain realism in general form, but also retain a cartoony appearance by avoiding excessive detail in shape or textures.

Rules

  • All models MUST be child-friendly. SuperTuxKart should fit the ESRB "Everyone" rating.
  • Models should be capable of looking good both alone and in groups.
