    I started out on this just to see what I could do on it, as I mentioned before it's one of my favorite circuits.
    After getting some decent results, it would be good to make it available. I'm not sure how to go about this though. It's not my track, I've only updated the textures etc.
    Maybe some kind of 'official' update for it?

    Chris, I don't have the refs for updating the bill boards as such, this is mainly an environment/terrain thing. I'd like to be able to polish things up though.

    Cheers

    I don't know how the elevation on this (SimHQ) compares to the other conversion or the actual thing, if that could be ensured accuracy it'd rock. Anyway, reach out to Alex (http://isiforums.net/f/member.php/219-Coutie) and talk to him about your updates. He might implement them officially.

    A version 1.02 screen grab. Still work on the edges blendings to be done - grass/sand/gravel etc.
    Then all the other things!

    The more you do, the more you end up doing! But it does reap rewards, well somewhat, so far ....

    Some work on the detailing and grass edges texture blending. :)

    Thank you for you kind comments MK. This is a good texturing challenge to work on, unsolicited as it is.
    I spoke to track builder Alex Coutie regarding this work - he seemed fine with it, so it should be good to go when 'finished' !

    Cheers

    If you can make the grass not seem like a washed out, blurry mess, this will be an absolute stunner. The details are very pleasant, when this is completed and Alex's track gets updated, it will be a staple on calendars.
