[CT]Galvarny Falls - V4 Released
Author Posted on 2016/08/01
Baoulettes Hello

I present you here my incoming custom track.
After a long absence of myself (maintly due the fact i had to repair my 3DS) here I am.

This custom track had first design on paper because I love drawing I used to watch ton of mario kart video all game serie to get what their special touch is and my goal in all my CT for now will be to keep that special paw they put in their work.

So here we go I will post time line screenshot dev to in game this way you will know how i proceed in creation in case you wonder :)

ScreenShot :
All pictures are clickable to get them in full resolution :)
I started with a simple road first.

Then I started to apply a texture (notice that still the same I use now :D)

but what is a road without "wall" to keep them? Well terrain formation here i come :)

You will say, that good Baou but where are your promised falls ?! well here two tiny then ...

And so these two was too tiny ? you wanted to see it from close? here you go big FALLs and a bridge near it. Enjoy :D

That cool but i want another bridge ... and .. an ARROW !

Now what about we go Under falls but not in water more like... Say no more !

You want more falls ? mountain ? and more bridge and boost pad?

Now all my dev screenshot are done here the tiny map itself to give you an idea :)

Now let see my first test ingame maintly focused on Light system :)

Then more about animation of water and falls + alpha based on vertex colours (transition :))

Now what about this boost pad :D

Now well added sun (moved a bit since) better colours for water and fall, light as become a bit more yellow to put a different atmosphere.

Change a bit the Minimap reworked Tree to palm.
Added temporary Items box and coins on minimap (will it stay like that in game? no idea.)

Reworked Fully the tiny map :)

Here my Todo List :
Visual :
Need Value for "go through water" but no fallboundary... If anyone have thanks :)

Change Cameras

Minimap :

mence It looks really great, especially for a W.I.P. You came back at the right time with CTs being possible to play again on 11.0.

There's not much I can really say as it's really well done! Make sure to add a decent amount of coins and 2 to 3 sets of item boxes for the track! Good luck and can't wait for the release.

MKGirlism I can't wait to try it out for myself.
There really should be a Tutorial on how to make CTs in Maya, though...

SGC Yellow Yep, it looks rather nice, like a mix between Yoshi Falls, and DK Mountain.

I agree, there really should be a tutorial for making CTs in Maya, I've figured it out a little, I'm playing around the KMPe, at the moment. (I think Baoulettes uses 3DS Max, though).

Miles Ermiiworth Great job, it reminds me of your wonderful MKWii CTs... I'm glad you make MK7 CTs now

Doing anything in Maya was extremely confusing to me. However, I know it can be a powerful tool.

Nice track tho. I like the texture animations and the DK Mountain textures ;)

Baoulettes I myself own A9HL so what ever the version that good thanks to ntr layerfs :)

About coins and box they are set already.
I have 3 set of 5 item box to cover the road width.
Coin are placed for now not really great.
I will make a minimap with itembox and coins on it so you can see where they are :)

About a tutorial I can't really teach modeling but you gave me an idea for my next ct.
I could record my modelling session so for those who would like to see how I do on 3DS max I could send it :)

And thank you for the comment :)

about a release well as the todo is pretty short i think the release should be there soon :)

Edit 1 :
Here that tiny map :)

Edit 2 :
Reworked Fully the tiny map :)

Keep in mind I will rework Coins placements.
move a tiny bit set 2 of itembox ~
