    How can we fix the AIW ourself?

    Beautiful, high quality track. Love the signage. Track looks and feels alive - don't know how else to describe it.

    Thank-you for this.

    if a good version of Watkins glen is coming to rfactor 2 that's a pretty big deal, I'm glad it's in the hands of Virtua_LM
    a lot of people's favourite track

    EDIT -I'm sure I can actually see some subtle camber in this track surface too

    Many thanks for this I absolutely love this track!

    On top of that you guys somehow made it an even smaller file size than 191. Share your secrets! ;)

    There are unfortunately too many steps to cover all of it in a forum post, but it is not that hard to do. The basic gist of it is to get the track loaded into the developer mode of rF2, load it up, use the AIW editor, drive to the area where the blocking path goes askew, select the waypoints around it and then select "normalize curve," repackage it, and install it to your normal rFactor2 installation.

    I know that's not a detailed enough explanation, but if you read the AIW editing PDF in the modding section here(only a few pages long--most of which is irrelevant to editing an existing AIW), you'll figure it out. Starting from zero knowledge of AIW editing, I had it sorted in about a half hour. It's probably five minutes work for someone who knows what they're doing.

    Unfortunately, since it's just a small modification of VLM's original work, the fixed AIW is not something that can be distributed. Given the ease of the fix though, I presume VLM will have something official in relatively short order anyways.

    nice update , just one thing, I run min. track detail but this track looks ( & performs fps wise ) like the track is on med/high detail
    so many unnecessary objects everywhere eating fps ( whilst in min track detail ) be good if all these object can be taken out for any future updates ( for the min track detail setting )

    apart from that nice track big thanks

    Mosport, Zolder, Watkins Glen and redone Phillip Island and I'm gone for some time with them ;)

    So many cool tracks on the horizon. New Spa for example. Waiting for A1 ring (don't know if there one already) better Suzuka would be nice too.

    very nice track, great work. Definitely one of the best third-party tracks so far. I hope there's soon a fix for the Indycars to use road course setups... and maybe the creators could change the haystacks into movable objetcs.

    The haystacks really need to go. You'd never see them on a modern race track. Use cones, like are really in use.

    The Miller 200 layout (the ChampCar track) has cones instead of haybales. Also, it is meant to be a historic venue.

    Your not supposed to hit cones, so just stay out of the hay and you will be fine.....

    Well, if it's historic, it's inaccurate, since the "no chicane" version didn't exist until the late 80's.
