    v1.04 is now live, go get it here:
    TrackCreation.net

    Changelog:
    v1.04
    - Fix for AI slowing down at s/f line
    - enabled GetMod

    v1.03
    - Some minor fixes

    v1.02
    - Reduced number and size of environment maps to work around a rF2 issue that would lead to bloated VRAM-usage
    - some small texture size improvements
    - completely remodelled marshall and starter huts
    - tweaked road materials
    - white lines have been lifted from the road texture and put into their own 3d model for slightly better visuals and variation
    - some fixed smoothing (if find any remaining buildings with messed up smoothing let me know)
    - some fixed road material properties
    - added some fake skidmarks



    The track was originally created by me (ethone) for rF1 back in 2007 and has now been converted and significantly updated to current standards by me and with the help of Virtua_LM. It includes two layouts (the F1 GP layout and a GT layout shortcutting the chicane) and a range of new trackside objects. If you have a less powerful PC you can make good use of the Track Detail and Shadow Detail settings which are extensively implemented. The track is designed to work comfortably with High settings (one below maximum) but does provide some extra objects and non-essential shadows for those who have the hardware to support it.

    In case you are interested and weren't aware, a developer's blog has been posted for a while here: http://www.trackcreation.net/devdiary/
    There is also a "review" with more screenshots and a video here: http://www.trackcreation.net/review/?p=186

    Very early impressions (just 20 laps in the Megane on GT layout) are very positive! I've never seen a race on the modern version of Fuji, won't do until the WEC race, so I can't really comment on accuracy, but it's good to drive, I'm really liking the overall atmosphere, and the 3d curbing is very nice.
    Thanks for all your hard work on this, ethone. Gotta drive some more now!

    Many Thanks for the track, unfortunately I get terrible FPS anywhere near the front stretch and other small areas around the track. I have my settings which run smoothly enough on most other tracks but just not this one (similar to Monaco which I cant run).

    Another reason to get a GPU upgrade later this month!!

    Nice work as always !! I am wondering if you will put out the older version also, the same as the one for RF1? That is a gem for sure !!!
