Go-karts have been moved to Extensions, and they are now available in all Spaces! Open
Extension Settings
in the Mapmaker, then activate
GoKarts
. Next, add a go-kart station to your Space from the Object Picker. Wait a few minutes, then go-karts show up to the right of the station. Just press “x” to hop on a kart and you’re off to the races! Read more on the go kart extension.
