Forgot to post it here, but this is how the theme came out in the end:


Happy on how it came out.

Wow, haven't seen many SMK hacks, the custom themes look nice, good job.

Although, are there any custom behaviors when it comes to track terrain? Would be interesting to mix some tracks up a little.

Thanks!
And I wonder, what king of track terrain behavior mixup you mean? 🤔
I mean, one can edit how much speed loss or how much traction they have, but I feel they are fine the way they are. :o

Also wither19, got any pics or videos of the custom tracks you've made? 👀

Well, I made them completable, but they're way too short. Also, I need to find my mouse in order to use my computer. It could be a while before I get on it.
Also, a discord server for hacking any Mario Kart!

And I loved that CT!
And one last thing! Look at the names of the hacks with red beside them!

6 hacks with the name "SMK Universe"!

Yeah, I noted, hence why I added at the OP that the name is not final.

I'm still looking on to what name the hack.

Probably when I'll start editing the title screen.

Huh. And btw, the hacks don't work! After selecting your character, It doesn't even load the track select! 😂

Ok, so, I changed the title. I guess I'll just go for the Deluxe moniker too haha.
Deciding between DX and Deluxe.

Figured it could apply here as I'm mostly keeping/revamping elements from the base game. Nothing too fancy like complete changed textures that look a bit bloated across the board (i.e.: MKSC style tilesets)

For an update, I updated the OP. Now I'm missing 3 tracks to make. I finished the last sunrise ridge, which is the 4th track of the special cup. This means special cup is already complete! Might upload a video, despite that it contains 2 previously shown tracks, but w/e.

Also, in reality, I'm just missing 1 track. For the second sunrise ridge I will remake my favorite choco island theme track that I did from Sour Music Kart. The Ghost Valley track from the third cup will be a revamp/remake of a ghost valley I did some time ago. This will just leave to make the second Ghost Valley entirely from scratch.

Note that it includes making the BGs for Mario Circuit and the GV replacement, as well as some polishing from other BGs too.

After that I will begin editing the other graphics, like title screen, character select, race results, podium and cup selection.

I will leave music hacking for last.

2. What does "GV" mean?

For GV, it's an abbreviation of Ghost Valley.

And apparently?

The guy who changed the Music in SourMusicKart used an old SMWC tutorial of music importing from MVS.

Also for updates, I finished the third Sunrise Ridge track. This leaves now to only make the 2 GV themed tracks.

I also have Special Cup completed as well. I was thinking of making a video about it, but not sure. Mushroom cup is finished too but it's missing 2 tracks themes reworked backgrounds.

Remember the jungle ruins track image I posted last year? I made a video about it. Mostly unchanged, except at the big curve of the dirt part.

So, I wanna share some great news regarding the hack.

Due to the more free time from the Quarantine, I got more interest in finishing the hack, and just reachied a milestone today!

All 24 tracks have been finished! I had a bit of creativity block since I was focused on other things, but today I just finished laying out the last track.

Here's a new reveal, for the final theme (and the last track to be done):


I guess I kinda cheated tho, as I recycled 2 tracks from Sour Music Kart (the rice terrace 2 doesn't count because I made it first for this hack, but since there is no full snow theme I decided to repurposed it there)

The recycled tracks are this one you see and sunrise ridge 2. They are no entirely 100% copied, as I added some minor gameplay variations here and there.

Up next should be to finish this new theme BG, which I named Chilled Chasm, and make a new BG for the Raceway and Rainbow Road themes. After that, touch up the existing BGs and then move to the title screen and other misc graphics.

This looks really cool, and I'm guessing the editor is easy to use? Maybe I should dip my hand in some SMK hacking.

Yes! The editor is really easy and a joy to use! It'll be interesting to see a Googie Toons kart 👀 They are hacks like Sour Music Kart, Baldy kart and Parigo Kart which changes all the drivers.
