    I'm not 100% sure but I think if a object is called RaceSurface* but has a shader which isn't RealRoad, RealKerb or their IBL counter parts it's shown yellow.

    Hi there
    how do I separate the street from the edge with "3DSimED31x"? I can't get rid of the yellow stripes in Abu Dhabi.

    I deleted the street in the main track and then exported it to rF2 GMT file... and then tried to separate the street from the edge strips and then add them separately ... in the GMT file.

    See pictures ... does not work like that .... I can only hide this.

    The "easiest?" way that i've found is:
    • Make a copy of the object.
    • Import the copy to the scn too
    • Isolate object 1
    • Delete the stripe polys in object 1 and save it
    • Delete the rest of the polys in object 2 and save it

    Hi there,
    if I understand that correctly now ... I've already tried that. The result was a flicker on the street.
    The edge strip turned turquoise (correct) and yellow / green (incorrect).

    I thought .. see photos .. Separate edge stripes t0_XX ... Separate street (with RealRoad) racesurface_t0_XX .... then insert these individually ..as Objects.. into GMT and scn? Abu_Dhabi  Track.jpg Abu_Dhabi turquoise track edge.jpg

    What i do is to edit the scn manually and add a new section for the new gmt.

    In Addition to what @lagg has written already, i would suggest to use the Function "Erase Geometry", in the "Edit" Tab.
    In my Opinion, it's the easiest and quickest Way to delete all Polys that use a specific Material.

    Hello everybody,
    I have another problem!

    In curves close behind the curbs there are tires that prevent the "cutting off" from the curbs.

    No problem when driving hotlaps ... But in the race against the Ki's ... especially after the start, these "fixed" tires cause collisions and traffic jams and the safety car comes out every time .

    This means that a good race is not possible.

    In 3dsimed I changed the "obj..Tire .." ... Drivable from "True" to "false" .. no success.

    Now I thought ... I just remove the "obj..Tire" from GMT and .scn ... The result: ... the tires are no longer visible! ... but you still drive against it, although there is no longer any tire there.

    How do I get "passable" tires ???

    I hope for help ... Catzylla

    Check (load the Track in 3DSimEd3), if where the Tires are, also invisible Collision Objects are and remove them from the .SCN too.
    The more elegant Solution is, to leave everything as it is and edit the AIW File. ;)

    Hello redapg,

    YES ... you got the right clue again.
    I removed the collision points and now the area is "passable".

    Now I thought ... I "put" the tires .. without collision points .. again and then I have a "ghost tire" that can be driven on.

    No .. not possible ... not passable !!!

    How do I make a "ghost tire" ?? ... which can be seen optically ... but can be driven on?

    I don't know how to edit the AIW file.

    Greetings Catzylla

    I'm not sure if i understand you right.
    To get Tire Stacks, with that you can not collide, in the scn File, set the Tag of the Mesh from CollTarget=True to CollTarget=False.
    That should do the Job.
    To explain how AIW Files can be made/edited, to get a better AI Behaviour, can not be answered in a few Words.
    But you can get every Information about it in the WWW. ;)
    You can start with this Thread.
    And when i'm not totally wrong, the User @t0p5ecret has made some Videos about it, too.

    Hello redapg,

    it works with the "ghost tires" ... several races without collisions of the Ki's ... so no safety car !!

    Problem solved !!

    Hello everybody,

    I was helped a lot .. with my last problem ..!

    Now another problem.

    See attachment .. I converted 2 routes and used the same Real Road Shader and textures for both routes.

    Suzuka_Karting the fine asphalt .. (great) ..
    I copied this Real Road Shader and textures and pasted them in Wackersdorf ... (also the textures in Maps)
    BUT !!
    Wackersdorf_Karting has a rough asphalt ... (bad) ...

    Where does the rough asphalt come from ????


    Greetings Catzylla

    UV scale is wrong with textures. Raise values on material editor.

    Hello everybody,

    I have another question...

    if you now drive against the sun ... reflects (shines) the entire road ... you get that "toned down" ??? Less shiny ... ?? (Latitude = 52)

    I'm attempting the same conversion with no luck (the 89 version available on racedepartment)

    I might just not know what I'm doing, but I can only access the track by packaging it, but it crashes to windows when I load it. I exported the textures first in 3dsimed then the objects waiting till it was done. I created the loose folder in the Mod Dev folder and nothing shows up in game in mod mode. I'm pretty sure everything is in the right place. Is there an extra step to accessing a track mod in mod mode apart from just setting up a normal race? Am I missing something?

    pics of location folder and files:

    or if anyone wants to share a file for this conversion I'd appreciate that too!


    edit:

    have managed to access the track via the loose folder in dev mode, but it still crashes to desktop
