    Started working on QR.

    No new buildings to make. Yay! I will do AO files where I can. Tower is done already.

    So here is the thing.......part of me wants to do the Willowbank Raceway drag strip, but does RF2 allow for point to point??

    I go there each month and have thought about it. There is also a Karting track there. I think doing the whole motorsport complex would be interesting. I would have to get permission to do stuff as well as I did with LSP and QR.

    Anyway, hopefully by the end of this week there should be some updates to share and I will also get the other circuits working again.

    point to point:

    p2p.png

    There should be at least 1meter gap between each alt sector/finish mesh. AIW could be tricky to set up.

    For car starting location, a few ideas:
    1. Have server admin order drivers to stop at the "blue car" position, and calls start from there. Downside is that it requires manual organization.

    2. Same with first method, but also add some kind confined entry route or road ramp to limit player from having a further back starting location and gain advantage. Though unlikely it will be effective.

    3. Place every garage spots at one of the blue car position, every cars will spawn & respawn at same spot. Then add walls around starting location so no car can drive further back and gain some advantage. For example, targa florio rally stage uses this method.
    (Current game will not enable collision for cars that overlap on each other initially when the car have not yet on track once, such as just joined server or at the beginning of a session. However, when this car has driven and returned to pit by ESC, there is a chance it will collide with other cars in garage. A simple solution is to just click DRIVE & ESC once or twice. It can be a bit annoying at times, but most of time works well and fast, and ensures fairness.)

    And all those are workaround, as game itself doesn't really support point to point, so there could be strange things happen at times.

    Mike, Mike, Mike....I WAS going to commend you for your fine efforts...but there is a Hotdog wrapper in the parking lot you somehow omitted. Shame.....such a worthy project...... <wink, wink>

    Hi @Mike Cantwell

    Quick question about Lakeside.
    Does the whole route consist of Lidar data or just the outside area? .

    The outside area. The main part of the track is done with a surveyors topographic map and accurate to with 1 meter. The only downside is that it was done originally using Bob's Track Builder which has mesh like a Red Back spider nest.

    I would love to do a laser scan version of the track but simply do not have the funds nor the team to do it.

    Queensland Raceway is done with cad drawings and the outer is also LIDAR now.

    Bathurst is based on a laser scan track surface and the outer is from NSW LIDAR data. Bathurst will be the most accurate.

    Hello Mike,

    Just noticed some issues with the new Lakeside Park. All three main ReflectionMapper (REFLECTEDENV, STATIC01, REFMAP0) are missing from SCN file, this has caused any new car PBR reflection (such as chrome effect) as well as other reflection effects not shown on track, please add those codes to SCN file. (IRRADIANCE_PROBE is also missing, and adding it would help a lot with track overall lighting and color)

    Thanks!

    Thanks for that. I just added the SCN codes in the Dev Mode and the reflections on track look way better. I will update soon.

    I know some will not like this, but I am not updating to the PBL shaders as basically I am a bit weary and also I have zero idea how to do it :p

    If some one wants to update to the new shaders I am more than happy, I am even happy to reimburse you if you take it on. :D

    QR is coming along well and when done all 3 variations will be back again. Trees are a pain and it is taking a little time to get them how I want.
    Once they are done, I will add AO files where I can to the buildings and then fine tune the textures, then release. Should not be anywhere near as long as the Lakeside update was.

    Working around the QR circuit placing trees.

    Very hard to get the tree placements perfect but trying to get them reasonably close. Once I am happy with them I will add a few more details around the track and adjust the colours as they are over saturated in places.

    Should be ready for release in 2 to 3 weeks all going well. All layouts will be represented.

    Working on the main entrance. Pretty happy with it and the outer perimeter road as well.
    Now to get back to planting trees :p
