    +1, I think it's better to adjust texture without HDR and check after the render with HDR. Can ISI confirm this way of working to avoid problem, how ISI work on this?

    Good point so, no new work to do ;)

    I do not ADJUST textures to FIT HDRs. I use HDR time to time transitions to EVALUATE shaders reactions on differents day times. It's called "feature testing", and Dunsfold shaders has been optimized for HDR off and for HDR on, for every time of the day.

    The track have to look nice and realistic on every time of the day, not just on the early morning...or at 7:00PM...this is why time to time was usefull for me. But I'm talking for my personal style and taste...I'm not trying to convince anyone as a matter of fact I've just said I've parked the project waiting for future updates. Easy.

    I'm not moaning, it's just a project status update. :)

    Thanks for the update Tuttle, hope ISI listen to you (and others) with regards to your issue and that it gets sorted in the next update.

    Working more on the Dallara F309 physics but I'm going to check how the new HDR (b90) works to see if I can work on lighting for the TG layout.

    BTW, the Top Gear layout is almost completed on the modeling side.

    :)

    Tnx!

    As already said...I do not think releasing a beta track for a beta game, during a beta period...could be a nice idea to test the track. Maybe could be fun for you guys...but far less for me...as I need to understand where the game is going, build after build..to tune up the job with the ISI standards.

    Things are changing build to build now and every field of the game itsn't 100% completed...so I prefer to wait for the Gold before release the track. :)

    True words! We NEED this!
    I even tried to convert the one from TopGear Stunt School (iOS) because I love it but I massively failed :D
    Please! A beta will make us more than just very happy :D

    We don't even want you to keep it updated, just to have a TopGear test track at all would be nice :D It won't change much for you (except that the users would tell you what's wrong so you don't have to find out yourself) but many rF2 users would be happy :D

    Im with Tuttle. As soon as he releases a beta, isi are going to change something and now he will have to do it all over again like always. Only then he will be fielding 1000 questions like.. "Why is my grass pink?" and "This isn't working, why?" and "The broken shaders on this are dumb, doodoohead!" Just wait around admiring the occasional WIP shots and we will ALL be better off.

    I have to 100% disagree Hagen. I've been waiting for Tuttle to release this and check the thread almost every other day just to make sure I don't miss it! That being said, I think us constantly begging for a beta release when he has already made it clear his feelings on it will only serve to upset him and make him not want to keep developing at all. We must be patient as FONismo said. (We just don't have to like it! LOL)

    I'm fairly certain Hagen wasn't being serious. :)

    Be patient guys...:p

    BTW...the new HDR range is pretty tasty...I think we're going in the right way now.
