Very enjoyable mod but it can improve a few things. Many of the walls are a little high from the ground so you can see light under it. The AI is very slow in the twisty bits in the top of the mountain especially on the fast left and when the AI leaves you space to run alongside, they brush the wall a lot.
I don't know what this track looks like IRL, but this version is fun as hell to drive. The surface has little bumps and undulations here and there and the graphics and surroundings are beautiful. Great job!
Some parts are good and some are not very accurate. The little bend to the left heading up to Griffins Bend isn't really there. The kerb on the outside of Griffins is quite high and savage in real life. The straight up to the kink before the Cutting is too short thus the straight after the kink into the cutting is too long. Track is far to wide through that section up to Reid park than it narrows too much. The drop through dipper isn't steep enough.
The drop into Forrest Elbow is close but the camber through the Elbow is too flat.
Don't mean to sound super critical but I grew up 2km from the place and know it very very well.
A solid job on this one. Texturing etc. is very well done. Road-mesh is pretty okay, but that's probably not thanks to ACU as the track isn't scratchmade. ;-)
What makes it "only" worth 4 stars to me are the narrow straights. Had a look at photos from Bathurst 12hrs and noticed at least the long straights are obviously about 2 metres too narrow. Don't know if there's any chance to fix that.
Apart from that: There's a reason why ACU has never officially released the track!
Refering to previous review . . . a little wide?? It`s narrow as hell on Mountain Straight. RL 3-wide is easy, on this track isn`t not so. ACU fellas - Any chance this can be widened to a more realistic track width? Great track otherwise though.
I'm not getting the raving reviews, the track is okay, but far from amazing.
+ Looks good, including nice use of roadside grass and proper texture work.
+ Replay cameras are almost spot on.
+ It's Bathurst...
- Elevation changes, track width and general features are way off. A lot of the corners feel too wide, while the straights are too narrow. Worst offender: The Dipper, it's flat like a pancake, while in reality it's one of the harshest drops in current motorsport.
