Turbo Kart Racers


Turbo Kart Racers is a fully fledged racing game inside Minecraft which puts you in the driver seat in a furious race against 11 other players. During the game you can pick up boxes that give you certain advantages in the race.

The game has 15 different kart skins to choose from; you can customize and upgrade your kart with different particle trails, sounds, engines and more!


Turbo Kart Racers (TKR) is a racing minigame found in the Classic Lobby where players compete to complete three laps of a track as fast as possible. It is inspired off of the Mario Kart series of games with most of the custom pickups, boosters, boxes, and more emulating those of Mario. It is one of the few games that requires a custom resource pack to play, adding custom assets and models. Turbo Kart Racers was released as a standalone game on May 22, 2015[1] and moved to the Classic Games with the lobby's release on April 19, 2017.[2]

The resource pack in Turbo Kart Racers is completely custom built for the game, adding a large amount of changes to Minecraft's regular textures and models. The Karts and racing gear were designed by Sphax, who is most known for his work on the Sphax PureBDCraft texture pack. The filesize of the resource pack is about 1.4MB. The Turbo Kart Racers Resource Pack info thread can help if players are experiencing lag or frame rate drops.

Controls[]

Some controls are necessary to know to understand how to maneuver the kart. While waiting, players can test out the controls on a small oval track in the pre-game lobby. Floating holograms also give info on controls and features of the game.

Movement[]

  • Walk Forwards (W) to accelerate
  • Walk Backwards (S) to brake/reverse
  • Strafe Left/Right (A/D) to steer
  • Jump (Space) to use the horn

Using items[]

Items can be used by right-clicking. Some items require the player to look in a specific direction such as at another player to use it effectively.

Drifting[]

Sneak (Left Shift) is used to initiate a drift, and releasing sneak gives the player a boost. While drifting, the kart will only turn in one direction until the boost is used. After boosting or even attempting a drift, the termperature gauge (the experience bar if the temperature gauge setting is enabled) will fill up by 60%. If the bar reaches 100%, the kart will overheat and spin out, causing the player to get slowed down. The bar will go down gradually over time, and items such as the fire flower and snowballs can also affect the player's heat.

Gameplay[]

Players are placed in three rows of four and wait for the race to begin. Once the race starts, players must complete 3 laps of the track as quick as possible, using item pickups to boost themselves or slow other players down. Boosters are placed at points along the track which can give the player extra speed as well as coins which grant Turbo Kart Racers coins when picked up.

After completing all three laps, the player is sent to the spectator's stand to wait for the race to end. Once it has ended, all players who completed the race will get a part to upgrade their kart. The top three players also get trophies—gold, silver, and bronze respectively—and the first place finisher gets a bottle of champagne!

Items[]

Items are obtained by passing through item pickup boxes. If the player already has an item, they cannot pickup another one until they use their held one. Items can be beneficial to the user or detrimental to their opponents.

  • Green Missile - Fires a missile that goes straight where the player is looking. Knocks the player it hits up, slowing them down.
  • Red Missile - Fires a missile that homes towards the nearest player. When no players are around, the missile is "running headless" and acts like a green missile unless it finds a player to home on to. Knocks the player it hits up, slowing them down.
  • Blue Torpedo - Fires a torpedo that homes towards the player in first place and causes an explosion. Knocks everyone around the explosion up, slowing them down.
  • Slippy Banana - Places a banana behind the player's kart that other plays can skid on. Slows the player who slips on it and makes them spin out.
  • Fire Flower - Throws a fireball that lights people it hits on fire and increases their heat, making them more likely to spin out if attempting to drift after.
  • Snowball - Throws a snowball that slows players it hits down with a firework effect. Decreses the heat of the player who threw the snowball if it hits someone.
  • Silly Bomb - Places TNT behind the player that knocks players who get caught in the explosion up, slowing them down.
  • Squid - Fires an ink shot causing players to spin out and inflicts blindness.
  • Lightning Bolt - Strikes other players with lightning, making their kart smaller and slowing them down.
  • Notched Sword - Knocks players away from the person with the notched sword or deflects missiles and blue torpedos.
  • Booster Mushroom - Gives the player a speed boost.
  • Golden Mushroom - Gives the player a speed boost every time the item is clicked and stays for a few seconds.
  • Plasma Shield - Makes the player invulerable from attacks for 7 seconds.

Karts[]

Karts are comprised of three changeable parts: a frame, turbocharger, and engine. Parts can be obtained through winning a random one at the end of a game, by randomly getting a part using the part roller in the Kart Upgrades menu, or by crafting a part using the part crafter. Parts are named based on how good they are ("<adjective> <rarity> <part>"). Each part also has three stats with each stat having up to 5 points.

Frame[]

  • Traction - Move quicker over rough terrain
  • Handling - Increases your ability to turn faster
  • Start position - Start closer to the front

Turbocharger[]

  • Booster speed - Get a bigger launch from a boost!
  • Brakes - Be able to stop quicker
  • Drifting efficiency - Be able to boost farther, quicker

Engine[]

  • Recovery - Get back up from a wipe out faster
  • Top speed - Move faster than the competition
  • Acceleration - Reach your top speed quicker

Grand Prix[]

The Grand Prix is a season-based reward system specifically for Turbo Kart Racers. Each season has 6 divisions: Wood, Stone, Iron, Gold, Diamond, and Masters. Each division grants exclusive rewards and other things such as Hypixel experience, TKR coins, boosters, and more. Some cosmetic rewards are given based on the time of year such as Valentines, Easter, Summer, etc.

Shop[]

Kart Upgrades[]

The kart upgrades menu allows the kart to be improved and upgraded by swapping, equipping, and scrapping parts.

Part Crafter[]

The part crafter allows players to fine-tune the stats of any given part. After making their desired part, it can be purchased with TKR coins; though the price increases drastically if the part has higher stats.

Junkyard[]

The junkyard can be used to scrap old and/or unnecessary parts for extra coins. Each part can be scrapped individually, but players with VIP rank or above can quickly scrap all basic or super parts from the junkyard.

Part names[]

The first word of a part name is determed by how many total stat points a kart has, up to a maximum of 15 (five points for each of three parts).

Color Name Points
Gray Starter 1
Mini 2
Green Auxiliary 3
Standard 4
Primary 5
Experimental 6
Blue Dynamic 7
Stellar 8
Kinetic 9
Multi-Phase 10
Light Purple Turbocharged 11
Quantum 12
Superliminal 13
Psi 14
Dark Purple Eternal 15

The second word describes how many stats the part has. For example: If a frame has points in traction but not handling or start position, it will be a basic part.

  • Basic - 1 stat
  • Super - 2 stats
  • Awesome - 3 stats

Part Roller[]

The part roller is a cheap way to get a part. It will select a random part, similar to the roll that happens at the end of a game, with a chance to get an epic part.

Kart Customizer[]

The kart customizer is the interface used to equip parts to be used in game. Selecting a part type will show all the parts of that type the player has in inventory

Toggles[]

If disabled, the experience bar will display an indicator for drifting, displaying when a boost can be executed.
