For those of you who haven't heard, or have been living under a rock in terms of MKDS Hacking since 2015. (I'm looking at you

Please note: I'm not affiliated with the development of the tool, I'm simply spreading it around.

A new Editor for MKDS that isn't MKDSCM, or EFE has been released, and this time it's an MKDS Exclusive Editor.

Just recently (About 2, or 3 weeks ago) a new version was released by Gericom, that provides some some neat new features,
and such.

I'll go over a few of the most Basic Features first:
- It's a 3D Editor, similar to SM64DSe unlike MKDSCM, and the rest.
- It can play Course Intros.
- It can generate Course Pictures, and Global Maps.
- It can also open MKDS ROM projects made with EFE.
- If you press, and hold CTRL while dragging something,
it will automatically set the Y position according to the KCL.

Most Current version:
Here are some screenshots:
(I'll post them here later when I get around to I guess).

Introducing Mario Kart Toolbox!

So, some of you might have noticed the link above has been broken for a few days now,
that's because I can no longer host Mario Kart Toolbox where I used to.

With that being said, I decided to upload to instead for now.
As such, I haven't been able to post the latest versions for the pat few days,
but here are all the additions, and changes since then:

- You no longer need to entierly close out of the program to reload the ROM, or XML file you're editing, further more, you can click "file" top even open an entierly different ROM, or XML file altogether!
- Discord Rich Presence has been added! It can be enabled, or disabled in preferences in the "General" tab.
- You can now see the names that courses have on the in-game menus while selecting a course to edit, making it a bit faster to find what you're looking for.
- You can now customize the color of the points in the NKM Editor from preferences in the "Display" tab!
- You can now use the Auto-Y feature in 2D mode as well, by using the CTRL key while dragging a point like you would in 3D mode.
- You can now toggle which sections you're viewing while editing NKM in both 2D, and 3D mode by checking, or unchecking the options in the "show" drop down menu.
- CPOI a.k.a. checkpoints now have arrows on them showing you which way they go.
- KCL/collision generation has finally been added to MKTB! No more reason to use EFE to generate collision. It also comes with new KCL calculator functionality, so you no longer need to keep a KCL ID List on hand! It can also pull KCL IDs from the material names in your collision model,
if you name them that way.
- You can even export the KCL/collision model as OBJ from MKTB, if you ever need, or want to.
- You can now toggle the viewing of point size on, and off while in 2D mode!
- Visual Kart Offset Data editor (with 3D models), no need for TooLazyToKeepDoingItByHand anymore.
- X/Y/Z Axis movement lock (works better in XY mode for now) by pressing X, Y or Z.
- Added support for MKDS Obji Database (Editor isn't available yet). Object Settings can now assume different meanings based on the data inside this said database.
- MEPO doesn't have a Drifting Value anymore since that was wrongly labeled.
- Changed some Course Editor UI elements to make it less cluttered.
- Various other visual and functional fixes.
