    I've tried adding a steering wheel track map to my track but couldn't get it to show up. They work fine on the ISI tracks but I haven't found any third party addon tracks that had the track map on the steering wheel show up.

    Not a biggie, I can live with not having it but I'd like to know if there is a switch or setting in the scn/gdb somewhere I need to set so that it shows up. Anyone?

    Have you tried simply copying an existing swheel_trackmap.dds file to the new track's layout folder, to make sure there was no typo in the filename? There's no reason why it shouldn't work on a third party track, and it doesn't require any setting up other than the texture being there in the right location.

    Yep, that's actually what I was doing. First with the Joesville one, then with the Portugal GP one but neither one showed up in the FR3.5.

    You ALSO need to make sure at least one track object has a T1 material applied to it named "sectormat". That material should use the track map as its texture.

    I usually apply it to the x-sector objects since they don't get rendered anyway...

    Woohoo! Thanks Scott, that did it. In the next revision of the tracktech pdf you might want to include that bit. ;)
