I heard that some of you would like the Smash Bros. franchise to expand to other genres. Good news - the racing genre has been realized by me, at least unofficially! I have created a collection of over 70 addon karts based on the base roster of the latest Smash Ultimate for the free/open source racing game SuperTuxKart (STK), excluding the Mii Fighters. I went as far as to use models ripped direct from Smash Ultimate for the most accurate appearance. Beware that while the karts are functional, they aren't quite as polished as the standard karts shipping with STK. One such problem is that the characters may appear to be slightly smaller than them, but not too small. If you're willing to accept this lack of polish, go ahead and continue reading below.

Project repository (using Git): https://gitlab.com/Worldblender/ssbu-karts-for-stk

Karts-only packages: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Lu1aS4lUVr_MFaRcuUp3byLaolmFL8Hl?usp=sharing

Below is how to create this unofficial racing experience:
  1. If STK isn't already installed, download it from https://supertuxkart.net/Download, and follow the specific instructions for your operating system. STK 0.9.3 or later is required to use this kart collection; older versions won't work.
  2. Download the karts either from the Git repository, or the karts-only package.
  3. Copy or symlink the contents of the 'karts/' directory to one of these paths, depending on your operating system (you may choose to cherry-pick characters if not all of them are desired):
    • On Windows: %APPDATA%/supertuxkart/addons/karts
    • On Linux distros/BSDs: ~/.local/share/supertuxkart/addons/karts
    • On macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/supertuxkart/addons/karts
    • On Android: <location of internal storage>/stk/home/.local/share/supertuxkart/addons/karts
  4. If the loading screen shows the icons of over 70 playable characters (or less if you decide to cherry-pick characters), like below, then the collection is successfully installed. Enjoy racing with Smash fighters!
Screenshots (Don't be fooled by only three characters appearing here! I really did almost the entire base roster!):

This repository will be continuously updated to include DLC characters, maintain compatibility with the latest STK versions, and to improve the karts' presentation (such as texture configuration and more animations). Please leave some feedback/or suggestions about this kart collection if you can, as I may use them in enhancing it.

This collection uses models and icons ripped direct from Smash Ultimate; a thread for the models themselves can be found at https://www.vg-resource.com/thread-34836.html. I also have vanilla character models at https://gitlab.com/Worldblender/smash-ultimate-models-exported.

I can create individual character packages, but whenever I have to update them, it may become too much work for me to go through over 70 packages. There is only a single package containing all the characters for now. I mention in the install instructions that you can copy individual karts to the addons directory instead of all of them. It already consumes a lot of my time to batch-export multiple karts, unless someone can help me with scripting to automate the export process, so I'm trying to make packaging as painless for me as possible.
