    Yes, they are a lot tougher now!! I wish I had the grip they seem to have on the last corner/sweeper!

    Agree, struggling against them on the 1st and last corners of the track with AI @ 100 with the Skips. Will have another go tonight to see if I fare any better.

    I am not sure I understand what half of the changelog entries actually mean, but this one caught my eye:

    Green Defender Barrier; Fresnel Specular smoothed out to avoid edgy/glitchy speculars

    The track looks awesome while viewing from an in-motion car. None of the specular edge "crawling" and other issues that plague many tracks. No z-fighting issues that are present to at least a small extent at every other track. The one and only issue that stands out here is the metal grating off to the right at both ends of the main straight. I get what might be called glitchy speculars or some sort of lack of solidity just on those two objects. Could by chance these have different settings than the rest of the objects at the track? Is it just because they are farther away from the viewpoint? The metal temporary fencing stored in the pits at Toban is another recent example of this.

    Basically you can set fresnel specular to show more or less "hotspot". Sometimes this stuff is called shininess, glossiness, metal factor...specular bell etc...

    Depends on the material you want to recreate. When you have edgy objects or thin objects (like poles, antennae etc), there you have to keep attention to that aspect because, while it may looks good from a short distance, at some point and angle (and light) could start aliasing because there is not much resolution available to render the spot, so all you get it's a clipped white. A group of pixels all 255 white, creating a glitch you can't control.

    Could be that metal you are referring still has an hot spot a tad too high. These things are also related to local settings (game settings, GPU settings, time of the day etc..), but it is for sure better to avoid thin hotspots for small and edgy objects.

    Thanks for the explanation. Those grated gates must be the most difficult object to work with considering how thin and how many vertices there are. And you have to try to make it look good from a distance as well as close up. Since we shouldn't ever be driving close to them, it may be a case where a compromise is needed that makes them look worse close-up and better from a distance. Right now it is the opposite.

    "Fixed sewer mapping" gave me pause. Underground infrastructure is taking detail a little too far so I was wondering if this was a gross translation error of some sort...until I saw the 3D storm water catch basins in sector 1! You have to admire the passion of the artist.
