A1-Ring 1.01

A1-Ring Redbull Ring Schwarzbierbude

  1. Dumeklemmer
    A1-Ring AC V1.0
    ===============

    Long time ago in mid '07 Dutch Devil converted A1-Ring for GTR2 based on the rF verison of Genhis99.
    - Pls. find their original readme files inside this archive -

    DD gave me permission to convert it to GTL but somehow I never found the time to do so.
    In Feb 2010 I took the time and added some new features as well...

    In April 2015 DD gave me permission for AC conversion as well, so here is the AC version.

    Pls. give a little respect to all these working hours all of us spend for free for your entertainment!
    This project is a “take it as it is, or leave it”-release, pls. see EULA for more detailed information.


    WHAT WIKIPEDA MENTIONES ABOUT
    =============================

    The Österreichring is a disused Austrian race circuit which hosted the
    Formula One Austrian Grand Prix for 18 consecutive years, from 1970 to 1987.

    After being shortened, rebuilt and renamed the A1-Ring,
    it hosted the Austrian Grand Prix again from 1997 to 2003.

    The track is located in Spielberg, Styria.
    The old Österreichring was more often referred to as being located at Zeltweg,
    which is bigger and better known. However, the circuit was never relocated, only modified.

    In addition, the one-off 1964 Austrian Grand Prix was held at Zeltweg Airfield, so this name was already known.
    The Österreichring's safety concerns reached a head in 1987 when that year's race
    needed two restarts following crashes on the starting grid. As a result,
    the track was abandoned by Formula One for nearly a decade.

    In 1995 and 1996, it was totally rebuilt, at the same site, by Hermann Tilke.
    Its length was shortened from 5.942 km (3.692 mi) to 4.326 km (2.688 mi), and the fast
    sweeping corners were replaced by three tight right-handers, in order to create overtaking opportunities.
    Its three long straights, as well as a twisty infield section, asked for a setup compromise.

    As much of the construction work was paid for by the cellphone provider A1,
    the track was renamed the A1-Ring.
    It proceeded to host seven Formula One Austrian Grands Prix between 1997 and 2003,
    as well as several DTM touring car races.

    Fantastic track. Lots of bumps make it challenging to piece together a good lap. AI also works quite well.

    Great job..this is one of my favorite tracks. I ran a race with 16 AI running the Ferrari GT2 and the AI were fast and challenging. The new fast path is definitly better.

    Very good track, love it. AI / BOTS as mentioned below are very slow, so would love to make them faster via using my own laps. Please tell me how to do that !!!

    Good track, one of my favorite circuits. I see two problems, one subjective, one bug. The bug: Pitstops don't work during a race, can't refuel, etc. Also compared to the laser scanned version in Gran Tourismo the elevation changes seem quite exaggerated. Keep up the good work!

    Track looks good, drives good but boy the AI is slow ! I'm right at the top qualifying DTM on AC Tracks at 100% but here I'm 5 or 6 seconds faster. Gee I would have to stop, milk a cow and then get back in to not win by minutes. Still the cows are cool, will look forward to 1.1 !

      Hi,

      we use our track only Online at schwarzbierbude.de, so I don't care that much about the AI performace.

      But it's quite easy to generate a new AI without any additional tools (already included in AC).
      You just only need to "record" a good lap for the Bots.

      If you like to improve the AI pls. drop me a email, I'll explain to you how to do.
