    Information I had from simexpo (due to language barrier, I can be wrong) :

    Release for Q1 2019


    Then, ROADMAPS INFORMATIONS :


    Roadmap Update December 2018 :

    "and we announced that we obtained a license to the Nurburgring, which we intend to release at the end of Q1 next year. Also fully laser scanned of course."

    Roadmap Update January 2019

    "Nordschleife is obviously also still in the works and it looks like its release date will slip based on the first predictions we made, mostly because we got the right scan roughly two months later than expected"

    Difficult to know what is the delay.
    That's what I wonder.

    Simone had to work 2 years to make Nords for AC, but he made it alone AFAIK. S397 will surely do it faster.

    The first estimate by S397 (Q1 2019) seemed very fast.

    But they can not have a delay of more than 4-5-6 months (July-August-September), it is possible ?

    Anyway, I wish S397 does not bast..... but I can not wait !

    When it was confirmed for Q1 of this year, I thought that it is going to be released unfinished, and later updated.

    The reason that they had a delay with laserscan data is big enough, by the way it is still Q1 now... so we are not even in the time of delay.

    @Alex72 Are you sure it was 2 years of work for Simone ? I would guess that it could have taken him less than a year, perhaps more like 6-7 months, but I just don't know. I think so, because not everything is down to size of the map, complexity is even more important. Nordschlife itself is quite closed track with most of the track side view blocked by trees, also even though the layout is very dynamic, objects wise it is quite same through most of the circuit. It would be a lot more difficult if it had lots of open spaces, much more differences in vegetation, a lot more unique trackside objects.... Also for AC they didn't have to wory about rain, night, did not have to work with anything like .scn file in rF2. Though making AI and replay cameras for Nordschleife must have been not very fun in AC.

    Though if we speak about Nordschleife + Nurburgring, then it probably took even more, I mostly speak only about Nordschleife part.

    I think in English, "quarter" means a period of 3 months, so we started the period of "extra time".

    But it does not matter.

    Thats too much, perhaps it was 2 years siince the project started and till it was finished, but not actual 2 years of work on that single project.

    Sorry, I am such a failure recently. Idk if I failed to do 12/4=3 or what.

    Still it was sais that scan data came 2 months too late, so I'd guess thats minimum how much more we are going to have to wait, and probably more than that.

    Of course. It took 2 years to get Nords out from start to finish for 1 man and of that quality. Im sure it was even written down somewhere, but due to NDA that may or may not be in effect i will leave it at that.

    There is only one accurate and it's called Nordschleife 1.0 2016, but it's not legit in all terms.

    Just to clarify, the two month delay we reported was caused by us getting all the right laserscan data later than originally planned. Since that, our development plan is pretty much spot on. That said, we recently announced that no less than three iconic tracks are in the works right now, so we also have a bit of a luxury problem coming up as they are all more or less scheduled to be done this summer!

    In recent years, several sections have been resurfaced.
    What year was the laser scan data scanned?

    Late 2018, around the time we announced it.

    Do we get the possibility to do the shortcut through 'Kurzanbindung' for the outlap like in Raceroom?
