So, all these rumors of a Star Fox Racing got me thinking, and I had an idea for a Mario Kart 8 mod, only problem is I have no way of personally creating such a mod, I figured why not share my idea here for anyone who may be interested and might want to take a shot at it themselves.
So here's the rundown on my ideas: Character:
Fox goes over Tanooki Mario, I was originally thinking Metal Mario but after looking at Tanooki Mario's stats & animations I thought he'd be a better fit. Kart:
The kart design is based on the Arwing, specifically the Star Fox Assault design (The 64 design is a bit more iconic, but I thought the Assault design worked better in this case) I did a design for it both with & without tires, since I'm not entirely sure if it's possible for a Kart in Mario Kart 8 to not have any or even at the very least have invisible tires.
The character emblem, for whatever character is driving, is featured on the outside of the ships top wings.
One notable thing about this design that isn't pictured (since I only drew the ship from one angle) is that the tail pipe for the kart is on the back behind the cockpit.
I may not be capable of doing any of the technical "Heavy lifting" but if there's one thing I can do, it's art. I whipped up two assets for Fox's character emblem & Gamepad horn, it's not much but it's all I can really do. Here's a link to them: https://www.dropbox.com/s/v1z99y3n5kheohe/Mario%20...
- I would appreciate if it replaces Wendy since I hate her but can't find anything to replace her. also i think her animations would kinda fit more that Tanuki's ones. - The airwing kart is a brilliant idea, i think it could go over the Tri-Speeder, with only one wheel in the back - the idea of invisible wheels is nice and probably possible just by giving some existing wheel a transparent texture. It could for example replace the roller or the azure roller since they're already used in a similar case : with the Blue Falcon -The emblem and horn symbols are beautiful gg my dude
The whole thing is a great idea, hope to see the results asap
I am sorry but I can't help on anything, (because I only mod since like a week) but I support the project ;)
