    For reasons that I do not know, sometimes tracks layout get split up in the list. I once had Matsusuka split in three! Unsubbing and resubbing doesn't seem to fix it though (for me at least). It took a fresh install to correct the listing error.

    It often comes down to a naming conflict between tracks with multiple layouts. If one track has a Full, short, and Long layout, any other track that starts a layout with short or long or full will cause the sim to double up. You have to look at each track and EACH individual track to find the conflicts.

    Laser scanning makes the track more precise, but will not necessarily have a better finish. You can make a spectacular freehand track and one created from laser scanning that looks bad.

    I have the feeling that some people think that the laser scan "creates" the track alone, by magic, you scan it and you already have it. It's not like that, it's just a reference on which to build.

    I suspect this may be linked to the track splitting being talked about above. You might the other layouts somewhere else in your track list.

    I'm assuming most of these split track errors are caused by various layouts within a track having a similar name as layouts at other tracks.
    I would suggest an addition to the mod pages. A track name index. Collect ALL the tracks and ALL the sub-layouts and list them in this index. Kinda like a Wiki...anyone could add to it....then track makers and devs could consult the index to minimize conflicts.
    added note....I don't know if this is still in use, but GTR2 used to only look at the first 7 letters or so. This would mean a track named Pancake would conflict with a track named PancakeandSyrup. Might be worth investigating.
