Frankfurt servers use a modified version of STK. The running version may differ a bit from the public source code because of ongoing feature tests. In particular, this means one can use server commands. Frankfurt servers use commands widely to introduce new functionality.


Standard commands

See Commands.

Frankfurt-only commands

  • /help - display server help.
  • /commands - display usable commands on this server. Can be outdated.

    • if all players spectate, the game won't start;
    • the command without argument switches the state.
  • /addons [kart|track|arena|soccer] - lists all addons common among those players who can play (i.e. without spectators), falling into certain category. Default category is the one used by the current mode.
  • /moreaddons [kart|track|arena|soccer] - same as /addons but lists several addons that can appear among common ones if several players install them, putting first those addons that are easier to install (= less players need action).
  • Soccer Tournament commands:
    • /game (number) (duration/goals) - prepares the next game.
    • /lobby - forces everyone to lobby.
    • /init (red count) (blue count) - should be used to restore the count of an interrupted game, only after the next part of the game has loaded.
    • /role (username) (r|b|j|s) - gives a role of red player, blue player, judge/referee, or spectator to a player. Arguments can be swapped.
    • /stop - while the time runs, the goals are not counted after this command.
    • /go, /resume, /play - make goals counted again.


All racing servers together store the records of the tracks that are dependent on track, mode, direction, and number of laps. If a player beats the record, he gets notified.

You can see the current track records using the /record command or visiting the records page.

Technical details

You can connect to servers via entering server addresses. This means you don't need an STK online account to play, though in this case you won't be shown in the list of players inside the STK app in server choosing menu.

Server addresses for the respective servers are currently:

  • for Frankfurt One;
  • for Frankfurt Two;
  • for Frankfurt Soccer.

All other servers are not always opened, so this may differ.
