Physics and Game Play Improvements

Using a corkscrew or loop track allows artists to create much more interesting tracks. Unfortunately, this kind of track was not considered with the original game design, and now is difficult to implement. Some preliminary work has been done: in our current development version is it possible to change the gravity of a kart depending on its terrain, so karts can drive on the wall or ceiling. But many more features need to be added to make this useable in a game:

Those changes are significant, and it is expected that a significant number of classes need to be improved to handle this.

Additional features that could be added in this project:

Not all listed options here need to be implemented, but a realistic schedule is very important for a proposal using this idea.

Hints

Due to the larger number of classes that might need to be changed (including bullet) good OO-design and quick understanding of existing code would be rather important prerequisites for this task.
