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.

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!

    Soon, hopefully, but I am busy guy so no guarantees.

    The author of ucars. ( Ucars is an incredibly versatile car plugin for bukkit with many extra, optional, features. It has controls similar to a horse as well as an improved control scheme allowing for braking, etc... Everything is optional, configurable and ideal to adapt to any car-based minecraft situation on your server! Now FREE on!

    Hi storm, when do you think the next update will be to fix leaving the server and losing their inventory while in a game?

    You have to use .ogg files, etc.. Just google adding custom sounds to minecraft resource packs - and yes you need to input the playsound value and length into the config for it to play your songs.

    I tried to change the music files in the resource pack, and it still plays the default music. How do I fix this? I went into the config and saw music, but how do I replace those? Is it because i'm using Mp3?

    @Hawnu: Go

    Upon further review it appears you need to redownload MarioKart because the required resource ( is missing, corrupt or located invalidly within your JAR.

    Still not working? Please tell me which operating system the server is using because this issue is similar to that with some android JVM incompatibilities with special resource loading contexts; if you can help us resolve these incompatibilities (by saying your operating system) then that'd be greatly appreciated! :)

    Will definitely check this out asap, as a temporary solution; change the resourcepack url in the config.
