Goodwood Motor Circuit mod is created using LiDAR data. No guesswork involved.
When I found LiDAR data of Chichester (thanks to our forum community), I have decided that existing old Goodwood circuit mod can go to pension. I feel like my version is significantly better already, the Goodwood Revival is still in our minds and Ferrari 250 GTO is almost here. So thats why I'm releasing this track early before it is developed further. Honestly, I don't know if this could be 0.3 or 0.5, I have had no road map, I have just worked on it, so I decided that this is 0.4. With all respect to you, simracers. I hope you are going to enjoy this early build.
What is LiDAR ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lidar
Don't be surprised that track is rather bumpy, it has many undulations, it is far from flat. Most cars feels very good, however few cars might feel not perfectly suited for this type of track, so take it to account. It also is about as grippy as The Highlands.
Fake Wet layout is included for wet track placebo, don't be surprised that it is so slippery, 1"50 is a fast laptime at Goodwood when it is wet. Try to take imaginary wet lines for better placebo. Imaginary because no sim in the market is simulating wet track grip correctly
Whats left to do:
- Revise some existing elements and textures;
- Add more elements and create some new textures;
- Teach the AI how to drive better;
- AI works just in quick race mode, because they gets stuck in pits;
- Final revision, and all needed corrections, if found;
- And someday - 3D (vertical) grass.
Andy Riches - For great help testing the track and preview videos;
Berniyh - Great help testing and preview video;

Also big thanks for everyone who said nice words, motivating words, helping words.
And now have to go back to real life, because I have not been there for some time.
