    loving the track but there seems to be a bug of sorts. at times when exiting to pits the car ends up just short of T1 on track facing the wrong way rather than in garage ..When in mid race a car crashes and driver escapes to pit he can at times end up smack in the middle of the track .. using Fr3.5 2014 ..12 AI and 2 MP drivers . happened to both MP drivers

    Ok, thanks. I'm actually aware of this, it is the issue I was trying to get fixed over the weekend and we thought we nailed it, but it's one of them random things that doesn't show up too easily. I will get onto this asap. But in the meantime it might be a good idea not to use this track for league races until I get a fix sorted out. Sorry about this.

    @Mario
    Yes to the spline mapping, this issue I know about, apparently it's to do with welding uv verts together, but these squares only show up where different materials are used and welding the uv verts together doesn't work in this case. The materials are both set up identically except for the t1 texture. I couldn't figure out what to do so I just left it for the time being. And the billboards we are talking about are the sponsor signs, not trees :)

    Thanks a lot for this amazing track, really good job ! :)

    My only concerns is a small detail as I don't know the track: on low car (like open wheeler, E.g.F3 historic), I have difficulties to see where the next curve is as I'm too low. Some visual things can possibly make life easier at border of tracks (cones?). In any case, it's just because we can't see pretty well and some cars are low (near the track). In any case, I enjoy it a lot, thanks :)

    No problem :) Hope we see us on track again when my room temperature is lower and my brain has a bit more sleep inside :D
    I hope then the battle will be closer :)
    But yes was fun :)

    The track is great! I like the work that you have done on the pit lane, buildings and road textures are very good! I like the lighting too, but these trees ruins almost every thing else! It is like a very beautiful woman with a big nose and you will always notice her big nose!
    I hope you can improve these trees!

    Cheers mate, absolute A grade quality! Nice details and good FPS.

    One very minor thing I noticed was the realroad doesn't seem to leave marks in the gravel traps like the the grass does.. Also will hitting the wheel guns in the pit lane ever incur damage?

    The wheel guns are not collideable, they are really only just part of what I want to achieve with that. I aim to have the guns held back and only come down for the pitstop. It's a first step in a pitcrew animation I have been pondering but haven't gotten around to trying anything yet. Its in a list of things I'd like to do, same as the paddock, this next track I am making will have more paddock details which will then open up more garage spots, these I will include in nurby when the time comes.

    I'll check out the gravel, its only a tdf thing, not real road, as is with the grass, just a tdf thing where skid marks are placed on the surface.

    Interesting idea with making the pit crew as part of the track. Could just work...

    A refreshing conversion! The track was familiar from rF1, but it's so much better now thanks to your original additions.

    I experienced a little oddity with the cameras, where the trackside cameras quick following the AI after I escaped into the garage. Recovered by toggling to in-car and back to trackside. Also the camera at the final chicane points into the hillside while the car accelerates into the distance.

    Also there are no trackmaps when you're selecting which variant of the track to load. Nice loading screen once you select & load.

    Those of you who were disappointed need to go back to rF1 and run the original to see the huge improvements.

    Hey Maniak,

    Thanks for the track. I love the pit crew!!!. :)

    But we encountered a little bug with the pit boxes and the ISI Civic. If someone choose the red/white Civic, his pit box is in the middle on the straight. :(

    Here is a video of our event. Notice the car in the middle of the road at the braking point.

    Hahahaha! Of all the comparisons you could make... ;)
    How big is a big nose? And how big does it have to be to compromise the beauty of a woman? ;)

    The pitboxes/garage bug is fixed, I'm just waiting for anything else to come up that needs fixing before I make an update as it will be a full package, not just an update. Don't want to be constantly uploading a 300mb file each time I make a small fix :)
