    I have to say, since i found your conversion for rfactor2, i race 90% of my time with rfactor2 using your track, with all type of cars, but mainly old cars, and in VR, what a pleasure I have driving this track. Amazing work and thank you very much. Happy new Year!!

    Very good mod, it's very fun.
    If you could make all the trees not ghost, like all the object near the road, and if you can add PBR shading for the road and vegetation. And if you can make a good AIW, they crash many times.
    Maybe you can open a Patreon, and we can donate per month to give you motivation, cause the work is very long.

    - Moved a camera man away from middle of road.
    v0.29 (2020-12-30)

    - Fixed ClipPlanes values.
    - Fixed visibility issue of some objects.
    - Adjusted VisGroups for many objects.

    v0.28 (2020-12-18)
    - New 4 rally stages, all pits&garages&grids are set at same location. (Do not click RACE button until the start of session timer begins to countdown, otherwise will receive penalty. AI currently does not work at Stage 4, other Stages are ok.)
    - New 3D grass, enabled by setting "Circuit Detail" to FULL (lower "Circuit Detail" to disable).
    - New set of Loading Screens & Icons (thanks to the track map created by John Bradley).
    - Added some ambient sounds.
    - Adjusted terrain feedback for grass and gravel.
    - Reduced cut detection.
    - Fixed horizon & various objects LOD issue.
    - Fixed some road texture UV map.
    - Fixed various objects.
    - Removed pitlane speed limit.
    - Original GPL & RF2 Credits readme.txt are now packaged inside Targa_Florio.mas

    v0.27 (2020-12-15)
    - Main 72km road surface was re-constructed with 8 square subdivision across 6-7 meter wide surface. The new surface also includes around 2% crossfall and some random height variation (about 1cm).
    (Real road is still disabled, due to several minutes long loading time and unstable performance.)
    - Re-adjusted Terrain feedback (TDF) values for the new surface, most of RoadBumpLen values are reduced accordingly.
    - Renamed track name to "Targa Florio 1967" on track list, added track icon for old UI.

    v0.26 (2020-11-24)
    - Fixed folder/mas structure, default weather is now working.
    - Added new Haze values to GDB file.
    - Road sign & stone are a little heavier now.

    v0.25 (2020-09-16)
    - Fixed a floating tree (trees589.gmt).
    - Fixed clipping signs (scilla1,scitopl,scitopr,calta7,calta1,scilla02,scitopl01,scitopr01,rosi). Most of the clipping is caused by incorrect mesh normal (recalculated with 3dsimed or other 3d software for fixing). Commented out duplicated gmt entries in SCN.
    - Erased many duplicated materials (suffix name _MU,_CR).
    - Changed most of "Alpha Blending Transparency" material to "Alpha Chroma".
    - Reverted road grip value back to original.
    - All trackside crowds and vehicles are now visible in all sessions (as also in GPL).
    - Reduced base haze value for cloudy and storm.
    - Fixed pitlane sector timing objects position (Previously was placed outside real pitlane area). Garage area was and still is the only working pitlane area.

    v0.24 (2020-09-13)
    - Fixed moveable objects that couldn't receive lights due to incorrect pivot points (thanks to senormen's solution!)
    - Adjusted one of grass diffuse texture (_GRASS_ADD.DDS) for better color/brightness transition.
    - Each MAS file now includes _batching.scn file with correct tag for easy batching process.

    v0.23 (2020-09-11)
    - fixed objects that flickering during night.
    - restored and excluded some bump textures from batching progress.

    v0.21 (2020-09-11)
    - Updated old GDB entries with new values, new geographical position. Loose objects are lighter (to avoid one KO). Old obsolete values are removed/commented out.
    - Updated TDF, reduced main road grip by 1%, increased grass grip (help cars recovering).
    - Updated all textures, corrected brightness (based on DDS files from v0.1, in order to preserve original rich color), see screenshots.
    - Updated SCN files with new values, including reflectionmapper and IBL probe. Old obsolete values are removed/commented out.
    - Updated all Tree shaders to T1 no shadow, so they don't recieve shadows (to avoid bad looking shadow on X board tree model).
    - Updated new haze value to eliminate white horizon effect, make sure you select default weather, or remove old TARGA_FLORIOs.wet inside "UserData\player\Settings\Targa_Florio" folder.
    - Both GPL & RF2 readme.txt is packaged inside Targa_Florio_Regular_Grid.mas.

    I don't know if those can work with rF2 version of Targa Florio but probably worth a look: Targa Florio Pacenotes
    Probably even if not working can help placing rally stage sign boards on the track.
    Also about rally boards positions: https://slideplayer.com/slide/14413597/

    @svictor Can I suggest to change the concrete pillars (black and white ones on the pic) with hay bales?
    Would be more realistic and fitting the era (since those are widely used here and more easy to install due the rural area)

    New progress, successfully moved pit serving area to the real location at grandstand:
    365960_20210110143410_1.jpg

    And it is now possible to serve penalty right way without driving a whole lap (ex. exiting pit under red light by accident):
    365960_20210110143553_1.jpg

    Haybale also added as requested:

    Am I correct in the assumption that the shaking in the cockpit view
    has something to do with the size of the track layout.
    Is there anyway to reduce it.
    In AC there was a mod to overcome this on very large track maps.
    Great update thanks.

    Been using v.30 for the last couple of days with no noticable shaking. The lighter grey pavement has a-lot more cracks in the surface which transmits small jolts thru my wheel, but the cockpit is not shaking.(flat screen, not VR) The larger tracks consume a huge amount of Vram, what kind of video card do you have and how much vram is built in?
