What if the SuperTuxKart devs said Zero-K is such a great piece of Free and Open Source Software that they said that it needs representation in their game and agreed to do all of the work in porting a unit of our choice into their game, what unit would you pick?

I would pick a Ravager because a self driving tank hasn't been done yet in a kart game and we already have discord icons for it. How cool would it look to have a Ravenger on the additional characters page? https://supertuxkart.net/Discover

Tux Cart seems to have a slightly higher quality requirement for its models than most ZK vehicles.

Which is to say: sure, do Ravager! Remodel it to TuxCart quality standards, and then backport its new ravaging look into ZK.

On some further thought, Tux art direction is also different, so maybe there'll be no backporting. Oh well.

Nice game.
(Also shows that you just need to exchange characters, maps and names to completely blur the original game it is based on...)

All stk units are personified, so ZK submission should be a Knight commander riding a tank of some kind, probably ravager or minotaur. Modelling work would be required.

Why not bandit on scorcher? Might fit better with their sense of scale...

Bandit is not what I'd call a "signature" ZK unit, it is nearly a clone of it's TA counterpart.

Has anyone even discussed this with stk devs?

Bandit is one of the oldest units that was designed explicitly not to be a copy of TA. If anything it's a closer simulacrum to Robocop's ED 209. I'm taken aback that you'd suggest it wouldn't be viable for a mascot.

However, ZK doesn't really have a signature unit -- there are simply too many to choose from. Even commanders have changed and become more varied over the years. Too many units would be missing out on the crossover treatment if one were chosen IMO.

But more importantly, Super Tux Cart doesn't have any mascots that represent video games. All of the mascots are derived from utility software, operating systems, ideological constructs, that sort of thing. Including units from an actual game wouldn't be consistent with its theme.

That said, I'd think a viable fork of Super Tux Cart would be to replace all the characters with various Zero-K units. There's enough to fill the entire roster and then some.

Isn't the obvious signature unit Glaive?
  • It is one version of the game icon.
  • Featured in the main menu background art.
  • Many of the SF333 scenes in the trailer focus on Glaives and 'Glaive' is said twice.
  • First unit unlocked in the campaign.
  • OP.

I'd go for a Glaive driving a Scorcher, sitting where the turret usually is.

Bandit is based on the style of the concept art done by my brother, Shraka:


It's explicitly meant to break from the style of TA when we were still trying to do Nova/Logos in CA before I threw my hands up and forked the game as CA-1faction, which is what became Zero-K.

all of you are wrong........................


YOU LEFT OUT THE MOST IMPORTANT ZK unit.



THE SOLAR COLLECTOR.



The SOLAR COLLECTOR IS THE ULTIMATE UNIT. IT WORKS IN OUTER SPACE.




THE SOLAR COLLECTOR IS PEACEFUL. IT NEEDS AND DEMANDS A PLACE IN THE SPOTLIGHT.



THE SOLAR COLLECTOR IS MOST ICONIC, IT SHOULD BE PLACED IN TUX RACER.

THE SOLAR COLLECTOR MAKES AN RTS AND RTS.

LONG LIVE SOLAR COLLECTOR, IT CANNOT BE REPLACED.

solar collectors even work on Onyx Cauldron, in stark contrast to windgens. they are for sure the best unit in the game.
