** I see this as a potential bad (to very bad) thing. Atm we always get the bonus of being open source. If we are being compared with some other kart games (not even AAA), the (quite objective) outcome will be that the our graphics are mostly (not all) pretty bad. This might strengthen the perception that open source games have bad graphics (random google results:  http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTExODg , http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1251459). The potential negative votes and perception of STK might damage STK's reputation, and long term prevent a successful steam campaign. Yes, it's early build, but I doubt that esp. some of the very old tracks will find mercy. \Perhaps we should release only new tracks?
