    I've been driving around it so much that I'm already sick of it! :D There were lots of non-usual places which required extensive driving tests to find just the right shapes. We haven't done any online races yet as pits and other needed things aren't added yet but based on my experience on simracing (been doing it from mid-90's) believe it should offer nice races. It's a very tricky track so hopefully will make drivers prone to errors which furthermore opens lots of opportunities for overtakings and hard fights. But we'll see in time. :) Now we just have to be patient and give feels3 the time needed to do his magic! ;)

    Welcome to average working day of track building project! ;)

    It's like that and will be even more "boring", when you start polish all little final details (which will take week or weeks) before release.

    But it's also very rewarding in the end. Looking forward to see the progress of your project.:cool:

    Cheers!

    Luckily don't have to experience this as feels3 is the one doing art/graphics part so all I need to do is enjoy his previews and give my feedback. :) My responsibility was road surface profile which is now pretty much completed. Have to say it was quite hard task but as this track is very different compared to usual race tracks it didn't come as surprise.

    Don't worry, it's very nice and fun track to drive. When feels3 sends his previews I usually forget to look around because am so focused on trying to improve my driving. :) Even though it's fun it's also very demanding track and putting a perfect lap is going to be almost impossible task to do IMHO. But I don't want to speak more about it. You are the ones who will give final judgement and it's all that matters.

    My comment about getting sick of driving it was because of the hard work required to make it function right. For example that steep slope required literally hundreds driving tests before was able to find the shape which didn't flip over Formula ISI but was still difficult enough so it didn't get boring. This is what JKa was talking about. :)

    DUDE!!!! That's amazing. If you need a tester let me know!!! I can keep secrets, that used to be my job in the Army. Finally a secret I actually WANT to know! lol.

    EDIT: Hey, I had an idea would be perfect for that building. I don't know what that building is supposed to be but that bottom row of windows would look nice as a row of loading docks. That would be a perfect look for that building. Raise it up a little and put loading docks in place of the windows. Just saying. But it's perfect as it is.
