v1.1 2mo Improvement2 Addition4
The Bowser's Castle track from the Mario Kart Arcade GP DX game becomes a custom track for MK8 ! I started to work on it 2 days ago, and yeah, kinda works now. ^^ So at the moment, some textures are missing, KCL doesn't work as agreed, and no lap path for now. Anyway, here are some infos below.

- All the course model from the MKAGPDX game (Some parts aren't imported atm).
- HD textures (Currently using 1024x1024, 512x512.)
- HD Nrm and Spm.
- Shadow, Light map and Ambient Occlusion textures.
- Objects and lap path.
- KCL collisions
- BG Music
- Textures animations

Softwares :
- 3D modeling : Blender 2.80.75
- DDS Textures : (DDS to PNG and vice versa)
- Textures : Photoshop
- Imports : Switch Toolbox

Stats :
