The first wave of Mario Kart 8 deluxe Booster Course DLC was released not long ago, and while most people are happy, some racers aren’t quite as impressed with the Switch versions of these courses.
Aside from asking to move vehicles in Coconut Mall, the art style and graphics of some other tracks in the Wave One DLC have also come under fire.
Believe it or not, the grass texture in Toad Circuit (MK8D) has been a big topic of conversation on social media, and it seems like the mod community has now weighed in. As highlighted by YouTubers and Twitter users @64iOSTexture hacker ZDL has released a Toad Circuit Mario Kart 8 Deluxe mod that makes the entire track look more like the base game.
As explained in a video on ZDL’s YouTube channel, the bushes and trees are actually Full HD models and the modder has added some lighting effects – which apparently makes it ‘much better’. It’s still a work in progress, but these are the results so far.
Many fans also appreciate the effort that went into this mod (via GameBanana):
Daniel328 – “Huge props for this! Finally someone fixed that ugly weed. Will definitely be keeping this mod from now on.”
You can see some more of the weed as it appears in the Switch version of MK8D in the video and screenshot below:
