Making Karts: Notes

Polycount Guidelines

Since karts are seen up-close a lot, we need to make sure they're detailed and nice to look at. So our polycount requirements have been increased significantly since SuperTuxKart 0.8.1.

  • Average number of tris for a kart is approximately 11000 or 12000.
  • Absolute maximum number of tries should be ~15000.

Kart-specific Style Guidelines

This info is specific to karts, so it's not on the more general Style page.

Character Design

Remember that SuperTuxKart is a game for kids. Good characters like Tux, Beastie, Adiumy, etc. are smiling and happy, while evil characters like Nolok are mean and nasty looking. Try not to break the theme of Story Mode too much, though that's not extremely important.
