"I want that one".
Only a couple of screen shots....I have actually done a number of sponsor signs for the walls......Bathurst had so many sponsors lol.
Another week I should have the walls and armco done.
GTX Bend came up really well. Exit is much more narrow than now.
The Dipper I have dropped about 50cm. I may drop it more yet.....see how it feels. Walls are 75% done....then the marshal barriers go up.
Hardest part is getting Conrod Straight right....lots of 2 steps forward...1 back sort of thing.
Grass will be exactly the same as Gnoo Blas as the landscape it the same. Have a good aerial shot from 1983 so tree placements and buildings will be close as possible. Lots of introduced trees as well as the native gums. Should be fun
We're enjoying your creative rumminations Can't wait to run some laps on the finished product and scare myself s#^*less.
More updates....adjusted the dipper and now get air coming into it. Over 1 meter difference to the modern track.
Added more walls and signs. Screen shots are from the replay....
Will upload a new WIP video soon...
Working through the sponsors. Hard to see all even on video, but should get 90% done.
Here is a sample....about 1/2 way.....
Let us know which ones are causing grief and I'll see if I can find them...
For starters, check out Autopics 1985 Bathurst pages:
Heaps of quality pics that may help fill in the missing advertising?
If you find it hard finding logos to put on the texture.... www.brandsoftheworld.com is pretty good.
Thanks for the tip and hunting
We have some good progress. I have all the sponsors that I can find done....because some are so old, 75% had to be scratch made.
The images are in T1 at this stage as there is some adjustments to do than I will use a better shader. There are a heap of new WIP and I will post in 3 lots of 9. This is a drive around the track, starting from Hell Corner. Not sure why it was called that....maybe, "Hell....here we go...."
Sooooo....a major stuff up.
I was driving the Camaro around and it did not feel right going across the top of the mountain, particularly going into McPhillamy Park.
I check other versions of Bathurst and it turns out my version is 3 meters too low across the top....
The whole section from coming out of BP Cutting and exiting The Dipper was wronng....so I am rebuilding that section.
Hope it works out. Will update in a week lol
Glad you caught it. Too bad you have to spend time rebuilding it. Looking forward to more updates!
Mike love your dedication this will be a special track when complete
Feeling rather defeated.....now I know why I stopped doing this back near 10 years ago. I will press on...but this will take way longer than expected.
I will update as I can. Also my wife is really struggling at the moment, so that is an issue as well.
I started from scratch again today....
Take care Mike, pass on our best hopes to your wife. The track? The track will happen when it happens.
Hoping for the best for you and your wife.
Real life is important. We will wait and look forward to the result.
Best wishes to your wife both of you take care this is only a hobby after all ...
Best wishes to your wife, Mike.
