We’re excited to announce a significant enhancement to our Mario Kart race simulations! By integrating data from mariowiki.com, we’ve enriched our simulations with detailed attributes for karts, drivers, tires, and gliders.
The data was easily available in table format already, so we just copied and pasted it into excel and uploaded it to dataverse. We decided to not make it more complicated than necessary
We then integrated the static data from mariowiki with out own python script to generate and simulate races. Using actual characters and maps enriched our racing statistics, and brings it closer to reality.
