    RELEASE POST - Longford 1967 v0.9, for rFactor2

    View attachment 9359 View attachment 9360 View attachment 9361

    from the readme:
    2013-08-19: Longford v0.90 - FIRST VERSION for rF2
    by woochoo

    OLD rF1 VERSIONS:
    2013-03-14 v1.0 (probably final version for rFactor 1)
    2012-10-19 v0.99
    2011-08-17 v0.97
    2010-07-11 v0.9
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    48 garage positions
    48 grid slots
    16 pit spots
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ==================================================
    =====What is in this first version for rFactor2?=====
    all the basics
    - realroad with ~1.5m-square road sections (build 240 realroad shader)
    - realroad profiles
    - wet weather road reflections
    - animated marshals (some have been customised)
    - hdr profiles

    This v0.9 is meant to be a fairly minimal migration of the circuit from rF1 to rF2.
    There hasn't been much "update" work carried out so far.
    Some textures have been adjusted to work a bit better with the daylight and HDR systems.

    =================================================
    =====Known Issues & Non-Implemented Features=====

    ===The AI
    - Sometimes they'll hop onto the dirt banks on the inside of a few corners.
    - They'll rarely form up correctly after the warmup lap, primarily due to the 3-2-3-2... grid layout (skipping the warmup lap is a fine solution).
    - Some cars may collide/crash in the first corner of a race (more likely in rainy conditions), in the Viaduct section, along King's Bridge, and on approach to Tannery Corner.
    - F1 and some other cars may collide with tyre markers.

    ===Animations
    - The flags and bunting are still 2D texture animations, rather than bone-based animations.
    - Some of the animations have small glitches and sometimes the marshal's headphone's are floating.

    ===Wet Road Reflections
    - Fences and terrain are not currently reflected due to the nature of the reflection system.

    ===Water/River
    - Have not yet added newer style of water animation/reflection.

    ===General Efficiency / Optimisation
    - Due to starting this project as a beginner, and also using a few GPL-era models, there are more draw-calls going on than there needs to be. The newer models I've made are generally assigned only a single material and make less cpu load despite higher polycounts, and they look better. It is planned that the older models will be updated or replaced.

    ===Continued Development
    - The main target of development will be updates/remakes of a number of buildings/structures.
    - 3D trees for track-side trees are planned.

    Thanks woochoo! I've been looking forward to this track :)
    Unfortunately there's something wrong with the download links. Link in your first post: "page not found". And link on this page: "403 - forbidden" when I click download.

    Maybe it's just gamefront..

    oh dear, it might be a region issue or something?
    I'm back at my place with my slow net connection now, so I can't post a mirror at this time, sorry

    Yes, gamefront blocks some countries from downloading... I'm sure mirrors will come.

    Found the server and had some good fun :) Thanks to those guys who put in a few laps, and thanks Durge.
    Then my internet dropped out, and now the server says I'm missing Longford component. Confusion :confused:
    But thanks for the compliments, and sorry to those who are getting 403s. Hopefully there will be a mirror soon.

    Thanks woochoo !

    As I mentioned some time ago, some textures could be in better resolution, but apart from that, track looks really good.

    You created really unique atmosphere here and I must say you have good eye to colors.
