Rails and Overview

Filed under: Friedberg GP — novatracks @ 20:09

I added some railway to the track, which you can see when youre racing. The 3D-Object was made by dosgraphix.

Secondly I have an overview Screenshot, which shows you the progress of the track. And you can see how much I have already done. I am really looking forward to what it will look in the end 🙂

I also done some small changes:

– Reduced the panel length of the road from 5 meters to 2 meters, for less edges.
– Removed the curbs before turn 11, and placed a wall.
– Changed the road-texture to a more realistic one (was too dark)

Some improvements on the Friedberg-Track

Filed under: Friedberg GP — Tags: — novatracks @ 19:15

After getting things started in my new job, I have found some time, to make some changes to the FB Track.

Here’s a short list of what I have done:

– New tarmac texture
– Adjusted road in width at some points.

– Rebuild walls/fences; mainly the shape and textures of them
– Added curbs and tyrewalls in some corners
– Added gray building-dummies where buildings will stand in future
– Added red grand-stand-dummies where grandstands will be in future
– Remodelled turn 2 (more gras, space and trees)
– Remodelled turn 19 (more gras, space and grandstand)
– other small changes

Click on the pictures, to see the changes made in the corners:

Here’s a video. You can see the changes at best when you compare this video with the old one (one post before).

Here is a video where I drive the current version (WIP) of the Track:

New Project “Friedberg GP”
I have worked the last days on another Track. This Track was originally the first project. But it turned out that the track is too small and that there are no good / special corners, espacially for overtaking.

Then after some weeks I tried out another route, built the main shape of the track and was kindly surprised that it was much better to drive.

It has almost any type of corner…..chicanes, hairpin, long fast turns and slow ones.

My favourite turns:

– First sector from start to the easy-right. It’s just so variabel!

– The first time you drive under the railway. You arrive there with high speed, the track goes a little bit downwards and then you have to break heavily to get the two 90° corners.

More precision

I have found out that in Bobs Track Builder you can underlay your track with a picture. That means, you can shape your track after the real environment when you put a picture from googlearth there.

I can now, as you see, make the track very close to what it is in the real world:

New Crash-Rails

Filed under: Bergrennen Koenigstein — novatracks @ 16:28

I have made some new barriers for my track. Now it looks more like the real thing.

I’ve made it from a texture from CGTextures, added an alpha-channel to get the transparency and changed the shape of the wall.

First Preview Video

Here you can see, that the track is at a very early stage and I have lot of things to do to finish it…but things are doing fine.

Lines

Filed under: Bergrennen Koenigstein — novatracks @ 23:31

Today I tried to add some lines to the road. It’s not that easy, because the easiest way to do that seems to use the wall tool and edit the shape and height of the wall. But getting the lines straight and nice seems to take HOURS….lines

Here are my first Work In Progress Screenshots from the virtual Track!
