== Physics and Game Play Improvements ==
 +
The physics of SuperTuxKart are very simple at this stage, and some wanted features of the game can not be implemented at this time. Some examples:
 +
* Properly sing motor bikes (at this stage all bikes are internally karts, i.e. no real leaning in curves).
 +
* Corkscrew tracks. Some preliminary support for corkscrew tracks is implemented in STK (i.e. the gravity of the karts can be changed, allowing karts to drive on the walls or ceiling), but many details are missing to actually use this feature.
 +
* Different kart physics.
 +
More details can be found [[GSoC_Physics|GSoC Physics]] page.

== Additional Game Modes ==
 
-
At this stage SuperTuxKart has only a few, more or less standard game modes: races with and without items, and a simple battle mode. A few more unique(?) game modes have been added over time (follow the leader, soccer mode, and Easter Egg Hunt). SuperTuxKarts appeal would increase if it would include more variety of game modes. Come up with some interesting ideas. For example:
 
-
* pacman mode: collect coins in a track, but avoid the police/ghosts who are trying to catch you.
 
-
* Add different physical properties for the karts. Perhaps even more extreme:
 
-
** properly implement motor bikes (lean when driving, perhaps wheelie option to gain some speed boost
 
-
** karts that don't touch the ground (flying carpet and hovercract
 
-
** perhaps even (very limited) planes ? ).
 
-
* Or what about adding downhill races with sledges/toboggan - like Extreme Tux Racer (which afaik is mostly dead)?
