    Thanks for all the kind words, I'm glad you all like it.

    The DRS should work in the sprint. Although I didn't test it personally, but if it's working in the GP Circuit then it should be ok in the Sprint because I just copied the same files in and edited the names.

    The billboards,,, well,,, to be honest, that's where I lost the plot. I sat for about 2 weeks staring at my screen not knowing what to do about them, weather to rebuild them from scratch or just update them (mind you I could have rebuilt them from scratch in less than 2 weeks but by then the plot had gone). In the end I just decided to quickly do something/anything just to fill the void. So what ever they are, it's just more or less a place holder.

    As for the fantasy name, I'm just feeling things out. I don't want jeopardise anything because I also do this sort of stuff for a job. It's a simple calculation, see a warning, respect it. Plus on the other hand, its not a totally accurate representation of the real track, so it doesn't really deserve the real name.
    Just keep in mind how this project progressed from a lazy conversion for a personal project to an almost totally scratch built track. I had no intention of going this far and was only doing things bit by bit. In the end it became a bit of a nightmare because nothing was ever planned out as opposed to scratch building something and planning the whole thing out from the start where everything fits into place nicely. So I had to make a call, to keep struggling with it, rebuild the whole thing again from scratch, or finish it as it is and move onto the next project.

    Thanks for the explanation mianiak!

    I don't agree with, but it's not my call either, speically not as it could hurt your job-possibilities. Not that I think it would, but it's alright to be extra safe when that is of concern.

    Pretty impressive filesize for a conversion. That heralds good things, I guess. Thanks for the effort!

    I'm a bit in the same boat. The titles that offered it never made me feel the flow of the layout, and I prefer Hockenheim. But right now this is actually the only available fully legal conversion track that hosts 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 races, it's perfect timing with the recent release of those. And given the shortage of F1 or WEC tracks in good quality, it's much needed (Shangai being high on that list as well, and Austin.)

    Regarding the billboard discussions... I think ISI's Silverstone approach is actually quite clever, even if it's borne out of necessity. A track with no specific banners and boards will be immersive for a multitude of racing - Touring, GT, OpenWheel, whatever is running there for real or in fiction. As the opposite example the ever-present Pirelli/Rolex on all major circuits available today for RF2 is quite an immersion breaker for the WEC carset.

    Did a few laps yesterday. This is a great show of what can be done with some personal effort Mianiak. Most of the third party tracks currently available in rF2 are just horrible. They're an absolute disgrace to the game. But the effort you've put into this track shows, and as a result it rivals any of the best looking tracks in rF2 to date. Great job.

    As for the billboards and naming. Honestly, whatever, I can't believe it's as big of a topic here as it is. They're advertisements, why are people concerned about that? I personally don't want to see any advertisements. Might as well just put up billboards with ISI's logo and leave it be.
