Count Duckula! Yes, great memories!!
Great screens guys. Fantastic job ITT. Thanks!
Since Silverstone track remains unfinished (look around the pit lane, for example), maybe they will release a 2016 version with the new black and white kerbs and other polishing? I hope so and it wouldn't be at all implausible since the track needs to get finished at some point anyway.
I hope we get the kart track with Palm Beach, too.
And I am as picky and critical as you can get when it comes to track graphics (mostly regarding the ever-present and ever-annoying z-fighting flickering and the occasional transparency issues that lead to excessive jaggies), but even I can live without shadows on the ducks in the pond if that is necessary for FPS optimization.
I think ISI tracks are not only 100% for performance purposes (although the official tracks run well in terms of FPS nowadays), but when releasing a new track or a updated one they take de opportunity to create a sort of "show-case" on how to use materials, parameters, how to do specular maps, etc. The new tracks are made not only for racing but to guide modders as well... at least I think so.
But I like ducks anyway.
Silverstone is not unfinished. Reason of missing billboards, pitlane painted adds etc. is licensing. There cannot be any real life adds anywhere, especially from F1 world.
Btw, current kerbs are not black & white. They are (very) dark green & white.
I meant look around the pit lane at missing pit boxes, etc. Not ads, which I could not care less about.
Thanks for info about kerb colour. My PVR failed yesterday and did not record the race. The HDTV would have hopefully let me see that! I will also check AMS track to see if those are black or dark green
EDIT: Do you have a link and/or pic of these dark green kerbs? Google has only reference and pics of the new "black and white" kerbs.
For example: http://twitter.com/andyhone/status/750999427792396288/photo/1
I believe they are black and white; sort of tribute to old days.
They're black and white. The owner admitted it's to save money; don't need to repaint black very often, only white.
LOL...I hope that's not the reason. They look nice, though, in the 60's colours. I would presume it was because it was the 50th running of the F1 race and those were the predominant colours in the old days. If Silverstone has to save money by painting only half the stripes on the kerbs, they are in grave trouble. It was likely British humour and a sly reference to Bernie's ongoing and ridiculous negotiations for next year's race.
First effect of Brexit.
How is that building balancing??!

Yes, let's hope we don't have another architecture lesson coming. Extreme accuracy in terms of engineering and architecture of the buildings is not necessary, but extreme inaccuracy or implausibility ruins an otherwise authentic feeling atmosphere....
Yes, you notice that the real building is centred on its pedestal...
Do you know what is perspective?
It is of course centered on its pedestal.

Well, I doubt those of us who already posted are the only ones who might think it was off-centre based on the pic posted. Glad it is not, though
Sorry but I've to say;
