This page is part of the old artists' documentation which has been replaced. It is kept here for reference, since there is the possibility that some content is missing from the Art Portal. However, be aware that this page is no longer maintained. It will contain obsolete, inaccurate, or incomplete documentation and is not recommended as an artist's resource. Please see the community page for links to current documentation.
This page lists all official fictional locations, companies, etc. They can be found in various tracks and arenas in SuperTuxKart
Please don't add anything here if you aren't an official member of the core team. We don't want a complex story or a 10k page scenario. Keep in mind: We aren't an RPG
To make things more interesting we need a fictional universe that is credible. Of course we aren't a RPG. It won't influence the gameplay, it's only for immersion. It's important to have common things among tracks and the overworld.
SuperTuxKart takes place in this fictional universe. The tracks and the overworld are in a planet similar to earth (except for XR591 which is located on Mars, STK Enterprise in the solar system, and Nolok's castle on the volcanic planet Venus). There is no real location in SuperTuxKart but track environments are inspired by real ones: example. Las Vegas will become Las Dunas, with the famous "Welcome to Las Dunas" neon sign. Of course things should be parodied to make something fun.
These names should be used in signs, advertising, etc.
It can be also used outside of SuperTuxKart, if you want to create your own open source game occurring in the same universe you can take inspiration here
- Tux: A penguin who is the mascot of linux. He is often the hero and he lives in Antarctica.
- Penny: Tux's girlfriend. Also a penguin.
- Nolok: A kind of Rhinoceros. He is often the bad guy. He lives in a castle surrounded by a volcano and lava.
- Gnu: The wise genie. He is usually meditating in a remote monastery in the Far East
- Sara: A human. She is a kind of empress for the overworld. She is the mascot of Open game art. She lives in a wooden Nordic palace in taiga.
- Xue: A harvest mouse. She is the XFCE mascot. She lives in the great plains in North America and her family members are farmers.
A Location != a Tracks (isn't equal to). A track is a racing circuit that takes place in one or more fictional location. For instance the track Hacienda will take place in the desert Alma Perdida, inspired by the real Nevada desert. In Alma perdida you have a Hacienda named St Margarita and a city, Las Dunas. Minigolf takes place in Las Dunas.
