    Welcome to..... THE GREEN HELL
    This is the community made version of the famous track the Nordschleife.
    20220416064016_1.jpg

    History
    2013:

    A talented person called Pleclair converted the rFactor 1 Nordschleife track by Com8 to rFactor2.
    Pleclair did a huge amount of work on the track bring it up to rFactor2 standards, smoothing the road meshes, adding billboard trees, real road, new textures. Please see link to his original thread.

    2014 to 2015:
    Tosch and I took over from Pleclair after he left the project.
    We released many updates. Our highlights were adding the 24 hour and VLN layouts that include the GP track. Also brining a Autumn coloured graphics set too.
    Thanks to Mianiak for letting us use his Newerburg F1 track as a base for our GP section. In turn, his track is a conversion of an ISI rFactor 1 track but heavily updated.

    2016: Unfortunately sad news, Tosch disappeared. He was a regular poster to this forum but this suddenly stopped. Same with his Youtube channel. I do not know any more than this, but I fear the worst news. If you know he is safe let us know.

    2018: Updated colour of textures to try make them compatible with Studio 397's new DX11 update plus added many other improvements. Release notes Here.

    2021: Added new layout 'Bridge to Gantry' plus made more fixes and improvements.
    Release notes Here.

    2022: New layout 'Rally Reverse'. Drive this famous track in the reverse direction.
    Added huge list of improvements. Over 13 Kilometres of FIA Mesh Wire fences added. Added ALL missing guardrails. New track side objects. Tourist area face lift with new objects. Release notes Here.

    Some assets were used from old ISI/S397 tracks like tents and people. Credits to them, thank you.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The track now comes with 6 layouts:
    • Nurburgring 24 hour
    • VLN
    • Tourist Summer
    • Tourist Autumn
    • Bridge to Gantry
    • Rally Reverse {NEW}

    Things to know:-
    For the 24 and VLN layouts, see pictures the route to start a timed lap without having to do a full lap of the Nords. After you have done a lap of GP track please follow route as seen in the pictures below:-.
    GRAB_1076.JPG
    GRAB_1077.JPG
    Please note: With the new Build of rFactor, with its new Track Limits system, this short cut is now broken. As a work around, please set 'Track Limits Rules' to OFF and the short cut will work again. This option is found under the 'EDIT SETTINGS' tab.

    For the Tourist layouts, if you drive through the right-hand lane before the end of the pitlane, your timer will start at the bridge. This saves doing a full warmup lap.
    The Bridge to Gantry layout is same as the Tourist layout except your time with end at the gantry. When you finish your lap and get back to the start area you can choose to go in the left lane of cones for another lap, or the right lane to get fuel and tyres. Please keep to the pitlane speed limit.

    Special Note for 'Rally Reverse' and 'Bridge To Gantry' layouts.
    These layouts are designed for point to point. It's possible to do races in race mode but please beware if you do more than 1 lap the game starts counting the time from the finish gate to the start gate as well. So, if you are running a server and lap times are important, I would recommend you set the race session to a timed race and set it to 5 minutes. This way the race ends at 1 lap. If lap times are not important then just race them like any other track. Practice and Qualify sessions are not affected by this limitation.

    Best Graphics settings:
    Cloud settings can change the look of the track greatly. I would try avoid Clear sky on the Summer layouts as that seems to bleach the graphics. Please use at minimum Light Clouds or higher.

    Also, the leafless trees on the 'Reverse Rally' layout benefit greatly with setting your graphics Antialiasing to the highest setting. With low settings trees in the distance can look pixelated and transparent. If your computer can handle it, run it with 8x and they will look very good.

    Anyone else having problems with the download link? Download not working for me. :(

    I have been having troubles with my router the past few days and I'm not sure if this is a problem at my end or not. Either way, many many thanks for the update gents. Can't wait to try this (and the new build) out when I sort my ruddy connection out.

    EDIT: Ah, not just me then. ^^

    Just had a quick test...

    Fine step in the right direction! Very good! Sorry to probably spoil some partying... But I gotta say I hope you guys find someone who can 3D-mash those curb stones down to the ground again :)

    Loved the texture-work, Tosch, even some new 3D objects too! Specially the grassy grass in the paddock :)
