A better tool that doesn't require Maya?

A Request for Mario Kart 7

Request Expired

This Request has passed its delivery deadline.
Hi. As a member of the Mario Kart 7 modding community, I know that there are a lot of tools you need to use. as someone who mods a lot of games, I prefer to be able to use the same modeling tools for all my mods. obviously I know it's unrealistic to expect people to use tools for different games, but there is one thing that I can't stand about MK7 modding. See, one of the tools you need to use to make a good custom track is Creative Studio, which only works with Maya. Maya is around $3,000 dollars a year. So either you have to take out a loan every year, or you have to get the software illegally. There's no good option there, and the crack one of the MK7 Modders gives out gets labeled as severe malware. 

Now, modding things in general tends to fall in a legal gray area. But if you need to illegally steal software in order to do things like add transparency to textures or add animation, well, the mods for this game are lucky to still be up.

I know making tools isn't easy. I completely understand that. But I feel it should be possible to find a way to make Creative Studio compatible with other tools, like Blender or Sketchup. And if we can't do that... why not try making something new? 

again, I understand that it's not easy to make tools, especially for a game like Mario Kart 7. But there's got to be something better than what we have currently! So please, if you know how to, I urge you to put your efforts towards making a tool that works for everyone, and will no longer require people to have to pirate Maya. 


In order to receive the points bounty, you should fulfil the following requirements.

  1. Must be able to Transparent and Animated textures
  2. Works with programs other than Maya
