    Beautiful looking track.
    It's a free track for AC, isn't it?
    I am curious did he mention the reason why he doesn't allow conversion?

    Not being a modder I've always wondered why someone wouldn't allow conversion of their own work for another sim.
    These reasons come to my mind:
    1) Original author wants to do it himself
    2) Original author doesn't want to do it himself but doesn't trust that conversion would be succesful
    3) Original author intends to make it payware
    4) Original author has some (financial or other) interest in sales of game where mod originated (AC in this case)

    Can't think of anything else.
    As I sad I am not a modder but without any disrespect and appreciating their work I believe that I would be proud if people recognize my work and want to use it elsewhere.
    So I always wondered what are the reasons with this and other cases when conversion of free mod was denied.

    Is words from RD when i ask for permissions ``Thanks for asking, but I'm going to say "no".

    I'm not a big fan of converting mod tracks from one sim to another. I kind of like the idea of exclusive content for each sim, otherwise they will all end being the same (or very similar).´´
    I have respected is decision,and no release the track for public :)
    I hope some day he changes is mind,because the track is one of the bests in all sim,for me ofcourse hehe :)
    But i got permissions to convert and release Goodwood Hillclimb by Gunnar333 :D

    @Rastas
    Maybe you should send him this beautys, so he will see the quality of the conversion ;)

    What about Bilster Berg? If we Talk about german racetracks, this one will be a blast! Saw it @asetto corsa section of rd.

    Well that's a bit stupid. Sims already got the same cars and tracks between them by the guys paying the bills and some sims even if they had 1 bilion cars wouldnt attract part of the userbase simply because people have different preferences and the physics/features in one sim will not please everyone. Weird reason.

    Alfie is very particular about his work. You screwed up by starting and announcing the conversion before you ever got in contact with him and it rubbed him the wrong way. In the future it's best to be in contact with the original creator before you announce anything to the public.

    I have not done much of any work in converting to rf2. I've allowed my stuff to be converted and helped a little in the process but overall the majority of the work was done by others.
