  • 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.

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!

    Question: Do the Ucars speed boost blocks work with this? Also can you use stairs to go up n down hill? Nevermind, yes they do! Great plugin! Fun!

    Suggestion: Make mob skins in the texture pack Mario characters so custom NPC's using the Citizens plugin can be like Toadstool to greet players when they enter race lobbies. Since Toadstool is short maybe use baby zombie for him etc etc

    Is it possible to add this as a minigame to a server without it messing with the main worlds of the server? Like, load plugin & texture pack only in a specific world?

    Actually nevermind I found my answer if anyone else wants to know how this is how.

    First you will need this to specify what world plugins work in.

    Next you will need this to specify what worlds the texture packs work in.
    Textures Per World

    I hope this helps for others who want to do the same.

    Do what! Reset the resource pack? Use a plugin which calls player.sendResourcePack("<url of a blank mc resource pack");

    @Christian2185: Go

    Indeed it doesn't. To resolve this, when a player quits your mariokart server and is sent to the lobby, then perhaps send them a server texture pack that's blank as this will reset it.

    The texture pack does not automatically reset. Does anyone else have this problem?

    @LethalWrath: Go

    Speed mods blocks (things you can drive over to go slower or faster) can be configured in the uCars config. There are various booster blocks in uCars which can be built into the road or just below it and there is even a jump block which you could put under some stairs for the same effect! :)

    I have some suggestions possibly if they aren't already implemented or suggested: 1.Grassblocks - make you drive slower (like in the real mariokart) Soulsand - Also makes you drive slower

    2. Add rainbow speed boosters like in the real mario kart which makes you go faster, also what'd be cool is if there was also a stairs block that was a rain bow speed booster that also makes you leap into the air

    @LethalWrath: Go

    You can indeed go up and down hills.

    @NickHol: Go

    Yes, it is in the config, I think it may be "server: control: false/true" :)
