This bukkit plugin allows for Mario Kart in minecraft. The cars are minecarts that were placed down on any non-rail block and can be driven along the setup racetracks and use mario kart powerups.



  • Drive cars
  • Race cars around tracks
  • Setup race tracks for your players to race around with commands
  • Use mariokart powerups



Banana that run over Bananas will spin out.
Green shell in a straight line and knocks over the first kart it hits. Can be fired both forwards and backwards.
Red shell in on the closest kart in front of the player and hits it.
Blue shell after the kart in the lead and hits it.
Bob-omb explode when thrown or dropped, knocking over any kart in its blast radius.
Mushroom the player's kart with a small speed boost.
Lightning all opponents to be struck by lightning and drive slowly for a short time.
Pow block POW Block hurts all enemies ahead of you, but spares those behind. When fired off, it'll count-down slowly through three stages prior to impact, at which point your enemies will all spin out to much calamity and amusement.
Boo the player temporarily invisible to opponents and applies Nausea to the racer ahead.
Random you a random powerup upon right-click.
Star driver obtains total invincibility and the driver receives a speed boost and the ability to drive off-road without losing any speed.

To run, MarioKart requires a few other plugins before it can function. These are:



Upgrades are basic extras players can use to get an advantage on others in a race and are purchased through the race shop.
For the race shop to function you need Vault installed!
To edit the items available in the shop and how much they cost you can edit plugins/MarioKart/upgrades.yml. By default there are a few basic upgrades setup (One of every available type); if not all of these show up, simply delete the upgrades.yml and it will regenerate next time the server is reloaded.
Available Types: (More coming soon)



During races, if music is enabled, the best song for that track is chosen at random and played using the Resource Pack!



Donations are much appreciated!

    1. Start your server. 2. Reload your server. ( /reload in console or in game) (Works for me)

    @storm345: Go

    I tried this and its still not saving when i restart my server. Also you should make it so the resource pack gets removed 100% and theres no chunks left over from it.

    @Ash4fun: Go

    Remove excess plugins, reduce the max no. of races, get more RAM, increase the racetickrate and the checkpoint radius, decrease the car speed. Annoyingly enough the defaults I set aren't that great...

    Great plugin! Just one suggestion: To make this even cooler, you could texture the minecart to look more like a car. This might not be possible, but I think it would be a cool feature if you could add it!
