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 tracks.

Apart from the call for moving vehicles in Coconut Mall, the art style and graphics featured in some of the other tracks in the wave one DLC have also come under fire.

Believe it or not, but the grass texture in Toad Circuit (MK8D) has been a major talking point on social media, and it seems the mod community has now got involved. As highlighted by YouTuber and Twitter user @64iOS, texture 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 in some lighting effects – which apparently makes it “way better”. It’s still work in progress, but these are the results so far.

Many fans also appreciate the effort that’s gone into this mod (via GameBanana):

Daniel328 – “Huge props for doing this! Finally someone actually got that ugly grass fixed. I’ll definitely be keeping this mod from now on.”

You can see a bit more of the grass, as it appears in the Switch version of MK8D, in the video and screenshot below:
