    But if you don't plan to ever finish the tracks, why post them in this section of the forum? I appreciate the tools you release, but it seems like unnecessary teasing.

    No Mario, you do not have to hide testing of tools. Maybe it is the WIP title that you use.

    When people see "WIP" they get excited about the end of a work in progress which ends with a release.

    Once all realize you like to make tools for track builders you will be fine.

    I can understand what you mean and you're free to do what you want with your personal resources, but WIP means Work In Progress...so people is just asking if there is any "progress" in the "work"...as, usually, a WIP ends in a release. Furthermore, an interesting project like this (based on Lidar data), might suggest other modders to not start the same track. :)

    There is no any problem if you're using this project as a test for your nice scripts, but this means the track labeled as Work In Progress is used as a test base,..which is a bit different and may not ends in a release (or a progress). :)

    Nope, you need to take the Road Atlanta out of the title and put in LIDAR scripts for track modding WIP. The title of this thread says "I am making Road Atlanta using LIDAR" in no uncertain terms.

    Re: Road Atlanta LIDAR WIP

    I can understand Mario. He is doing a great job for 3dsmax users trying to adapt it to be a dedicated track making tool.

    Time is limited and there is also a personal life beyond simulation. He will be doing what it is more rewarding for him atm. Things need motivation and usually this one ends when getting stuck at certain problem. After some time you recover the required motivation to keep on. I have known Mario's work since I started several years ago and used some of his xpacks for btb. His evolution and good will is impressive.

    I know this is not the post but I want to encourage Mario, it was a moment that the idea of creating a circuit remain me in the head, but I could not make the leap without a boost. and script mario push me to discover 3ds Max.
    I am currently trying to create a route "little known to all, just a circuit near my house" but mostly I made ‚Äč‚Äčtutorials to learn. just as I had done with photoshop 5 years ago. I was a ball and now I'm doing ^ ^
    I strongly encouraged to continue its efforts and I am literally every his post ^ ^

    I reimport the points with max resolution.
    Before was too slow to import now i can import 232k points fast.

    I move all points (Spline points) to the points cloud and the results are much better.
    Not bad for aerial scan.

    Do you mean the signs, objects, walls and all that? I'm sure a Georgian will turn up!
