    v2.01 has multiple layouts to include the 24HR and VLN course. AC conversion is just Nords.

    V2.01 is very good but maybe not as accurate in the Nords section and has not been updated for DX11 (though still looks good). It is also a better night driving experience.

    Hi guys,

    sorry for being a bit quiet.

    Back in May last year I announced I was working on an update for you. Well, things got in the way, like me sorting out my broken car, then scraping said broking car, to get another car for that to be broken too. :O. Plus traveling to visit the girlfriend who lives a long way away. Well, in the end, Nords update got left behind :(.

    But there is good news, I've found lots of time to work on it again. You can thank me for being unemployed this last 3 months for that o_O :/.

    McFlex said a few pages ago he has file's with removed kerbstones at the big and small karussel's. He has already given them to me and will be part of this update. I thank him again.

    I've not had the help from Tosch this time. I have not seen him on the forum in sometime, hope he is well.

    If all goes well, I'm hoping to release this update late this weekend :).

    Spam that F5 key :D

    There's any possibility of making the tarmac more plane, like the converted version of nords from Assetto Corsa?

    @DJCruicky Awesome news that you are updating this. And potentially in such a small timeframe :cool:. It is a favourite of mine (absolutely love the spotlights in the night race..sometimes its the simple things!). Shame it wasn't under better circumstances you are doing this but I'm sure it will be really appreciated by those who already use it and any new players coming to rFactor2. The ongoing work by modders and S397 make IMHO rFactor2 a really exciting place to be.

    Ok you can all stop with your F5 button presses, here it is as promised, Nordschleife. v2.30.
    Code:
    Change Log
    ----------------
    - Colour adjustments for DX11
    - Added missing guardrails to the first half of track (second half of track still to do)
    - Moved trees clipping through guardrails.
    - Guardrails painted to match the real track. For example red and white sections. Orange paint to show service roads.
    - New night lights on GP circuit. 3 different types. (Please turn on post processing for them to bloom in DX11). Omni lighting were redone too.
    - New signage billboards for GP circuit.
    - New objects on GP circuit like radio poles to try match that of the real track.
    - Fixed all wooden huts that had broken roofs on Nordschleife.
    - Added or moved trees in some locations to try to match that of the real track.
    - Re-shaped the electronic information sign at the exit of tourist pit-lane to match that of the real track.
    - Improved the look of campfires at night.
    - Added Marquee and Gala tents (borrowed from Zandvoort track)
    - Tidied up some of the campsites
    - Tidied up some lumps and cracks in terrain.
    - Added extra objects and spectators at Brunnchen (YouTube corner)
    - LOD adjustments to try to improve FPS performance (Not much changed sorry to say).
    - Removed 20% of trees. Trees that you don't see from track level.
    - Began work on making trees next to road only cast shadows and not the whole forest. Still, lots to do.
    - Added working solar-powered marshal lights to match that of the real track. As a bonus, they also light up blue if you are getting lapped.
    - Fixed white lines on GP track showing up as black at night with car headlights.
    - Monitor screens now have new graphics at the GP pitlane.
    - Changed the date from 27th Oct to the 2nd Oct for the Autumn layouts.  This increases the window of daylight.  (Ignore what the loading screen says).
    - Plus many small things like removing some flickery trees where 2 are too close to each other and they conflicted.
    
    Special thanks to McFlex. He flattened the kerb stones at the big and small Karussels.

    Sorry, no Steam-workshop release at this time. I've read the steam workshops terms and conditions and don't think my track meets them. The track has too many logos that kind of look like real ones. And, the track is not all my work, it's a continuation of other peoples work. I hope you respect my wishes and decision.

    To install, drop the file into your package folder, then install with the rfactor2 launcher. You are then free to delete that file if you wish too to save HD space. Easy.

    There were still a few things I wanted to finish before this release but ran out of time. The reason for this rush release, I'm going away again next week, and then when I come back I need to sort out my floorboards in my flat. A case of dry rot :/. Not good. As you can guess there will be little progress on the track until sorted.

    But I do hope there is a lot of new stuff in this release to keep you all happy and excited for now. Will return to it when life stops throwing bananas at me :D

    I'll try to update the first post in good time. I'll make some screenshots later, feel free to post some of your own below if you wish. The good ones might even make the first page :).


    I hope you all enjoy

    DJC

    Agreed.

    I'm not sure how you've:

    a) made it look so dam good
    b) rung so much performance out of it.

    Insanely good update and a must have track!

    Can you also take a look at the wall in the entry of the Nordschleife when coming from the gt circuit? There is a point you can destroy your car.
