Open Racer Media

This section contains various media related information and stuff.


Gregory Brubaker has prepared a detailed description of the current Open Racer map format.

UI Graphics


An environment consists of three main parts; settings, textures, and environment maps. The settings contains various properties of the environment, such as name, description, icon, lighting condition, and possibly other special effects such as snow.


- Format?
- Properties:
  • Name of environment
  • Short description of environment
  • Icon or picture representing the environment (size?)
  • Terrain types in the environment
    • Texture(s) that each terrain type uses
    • What friction it has
    • Sound caused by each terrain type
    • Info on the particles lifted into the air when moving over the terrain.
  • Environment map to use
  • Possible special conditions in this environment (should each special condition have the possibility to redefine some/all parameters? Wouldn't they be separate environments then?)
  • Music files used in this environment?
  • Other stuff?


Some textures by zzorn can be found on Purple. There are also textures in the media tgz file.
