This is an upcoming course i'm working on overhauling one of my most anticipated stages for mk8 that never made it as track/DLC. Currently tracks can be done and you can use my tutorial when released to make your own. I still plan doing a huge majority of the stage till the tools come such as byaml/object placement and texture tests for normal and spec maps. 

This stage will include:
Everything Remodeled
A shadow/AO map. 
HD textures
Normal and Spec maps
Anti-gravity sections
Glowing lights on railing and platform

New: 

Update: 4/16/19

Map is planned to release within a month or 2 so stay tuned! Many of the tools have been massively improved and allow me to finally finish the map to how i wanted it.  Currently the map is mostly being finalized with the modeling and baking process. I hope to finish this as soon as i can so everyone can enjoy!

I plan on adding both original and modified layouts. I personally want the original layout so I decided to have 2 options to so everyone can enjoy. The new layout ill be out after the original one and may take awhile till i finish.

Layout of the stage:
Currently the layout will be the same as original and I will release that. Then with the same assets i will make a new layout based on ideas from this. The reason why a new layout being delayed is just the overall change it will be and i've been focusing on quality while retaining the original feel this month. The new layout shouldn't take long however but i would like to get this map out soon!

If this track does not turn out as good in game I may delay it untill further research goes into things like AAMP files(in course.bgenv) to be edited so we can control stage lighting. However I do believe baking should do fine for now.
 Edit: lighting turned out great! Both character lighting ( from aligning with a mk8 stage and stage lighting) looks good!

Objects to add
Fire Ring from Wario Stadium if possible
Item boxes and coins
Spotlights from Mario Stadium
Other possible background elements
Fire bar possibly for a hazard.

A battle track alt was planned but will no longer happen due to the limitations of mk8 wii u. The paths simply can not work unless I figure out a possible way. Until then I may do one for mk8d when the time comes to mod that game.

Todos

Make the track more contextualized, make sure nothing is just floating randomly. Create light post model for any light sources on the road Do shadow/AO map for most objects Finalize layout Add all objects

    I'm glad MK8 modding is still around. This course looks very cool. We need more GCN courses (more courses in general) Is it still being worked on?

    I do hope you haven't given up on this project.  It seems like you were far along, and of all the previous Mario Kart stages I'd love to see implemented into 8, Wario Colosseum takes the top spot by a landslide.  I understand if this is taking longer than expected, I just hope you still work on it when you have free time.  Let me know!  I can handle more waiting, but I'd be pretty bummed out if you've scrapped this.
