Nordschleife Tourist 55 AI 1.148

Nordschleife Tourist Offline with New Pit Layout, 55 AI Pitboxes, AI Lines, Cam and Ai Hints

  1. Adie Evergreen
    AC Version
    1.15.2

    Designed for 1.15.2 version of Assetto corsa
    Different version of AC may result un-noted bug

    Note :
    if you already have 1.128, remove the mod completely.
    then download and use 1.148 as usual (as before)

    1.128 Release 4 November 2017
    1.148 Release 13 November 2017

    Background :
    I bought AC just for cruising in Nordschleife Tourist. Unfortunately, i live in a distances country from server thus suffer from a high ping which can really bug some honest player when racing inch by inch in online session.

    So i started to make this mod from May 2017 to cruise in nordschleife tourist with 55 collection of AI. I Revised it time to time when i have spare time.


    Since we didnt know if kunos would update this tourist layout with official AI or not, so i just fill this empty space for a while by decided to share this mod here on RD.

    About :
    This is a mod where i add a Layout Addon for New Tourist Pit Design include proper entry & exit collision, along with 55 AI PitBoxes, Fastlane, AI Pitlane, Track Boundaries and Static Cam

    Please Note That :
    I use a different/separated file from original, So this is a "Layout AddOn with its own Script and Data. All Ks_Nordschleife and others support file remain original.


    Warning :
    Please be kind enough with your CPU Limit. Test it first with "x" amount of AI. Know your CPU before pushing it to the limit and Use at your own risk

    Author Video :
    Please watch the video before download
    Main feature of Trackday (skip to @10:35), and
    Race Spread Mode (skip to @15:48)
    Note : This is 1.128 mod version video, Track UI have changed in 1.148 to "Nordschleife - AE 1.148" under "Nordschleife" Group



    Video Note and Spec :
    Sorry for the resolution. I have to resized it to 720P 15K Bitrate for smaller upload size. i7-4790K, GTX 980TI, 32GB RAM, 1080P and ... Mouse for steering (to mention regarding ffb update rate)

    This is Alistair McKinley's Video about the mod (German Presentation)

    Many thx mate :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:


    Requirement :
    Assetto Corsa DLC Dream Pack 1

    Modding Purposed :
    - Mainly purposed only for offline fun with AI
    - Improving skill by competing with 5 custom ai hints


    Modding Feature :
    as in previous 1.128 version

    - Nordschleife Tourist with 55 AI Slot
    56 Including Player
    - Nordschleife Entrance Prettification
    Only Add few LowPoly Original AC Object
    Purposed to maintain FPS during crowded
    - Trackdays or Practice Mode
    All 55 AI Pit Boxes in the left side parking area
    - Race Mode
    This is not a race, its just a spreaded start where 55 AI already spreaded in every section of the track.
    It can help to ease GPU use, but CPU usage will remain the same, since it still calculating all AI
    Note : You must Use 1st Position to have a Proper/Legit time. Position 2nd to 55th will have a buggy time in their 1st lap, since they didnt pass the start line instead directly pass finish line.
    - New AI Fastlane and Pitlane
    My Version of Fastlane and PitLane
    - New Track Limit/Boundaries
    Encouraging but also limiting AI Moves and Overtake. I let some overtake limit wider, just to have a little bit Random AI accident
    - 5 Optional ai_hints
    You can choose 1 from 5 custom ai_hints level that i've provided.
    there are Tourist, Standard, SemiPro, Pro and Alien.
    It is an effort to have a Consistent and Competitives AI Laptimes each lap.
    Note : ingame Strenght Must 100% or in laps 2,3,4..ect AI will have "too early braking bug" in hohenrein and wehrseifen thus making their lap slower compare to their 1st lap
    - Re-scripted and Add 43 static camera
    Static Spectator View Only (Press F3 for track Cameras). Use this and feel the sound of cars
    That passes by.

    Release Update
    Mod Log Version 1.148 :
    - Revised Track Limit (Suggested by : Alistair McKinley)
    - Revised Fastlane
    - Race Slot Re-Order (numerical random pos)
    - Moving user Pitbox near Gate
    - New TV Cam and Add Static 95 Camera
    - Added Marshall around the tourist track
    - Entrance Object DrawCall Rework
    - Entrance Texture Re-Assign
    - Ui Name Fix (Suggested by : Hachiroku_88PL)
    - Other data and script

    dont get me wrong the parts of the track you did modify were very good. good ai paths a nice pit area and all that but. i myself was looking for a nurburg track with 50+ ai as a complete track. you should have made 2 variants. one for the trackdays like one you have here and another for when someone like me with a beast enough cpu that wants the full enduro experience. all you have to do is free up the straight and this track would have been a 5 star dream come true. good mod thou.

      There're already 108 and 60 Ai slot made by other modder for endurance version here in racedepartment.

      To combine both endurance and tourist i'm a bit afraid about the kunos contract with track official.

      So, I just made layout only for tourist like a lil bit similar with 2017 tourist layout in youtube video.

      Thx for the stars mate ^_^

      Thanks for the 5 star ^ ^

      I hope you solve the bug by going 100% strenght in tour level of ai_hints.

      If you want slower AI than the tour level, You can simply edit it your self. i've made a simple tutorial to modifed it. Its in "what is this Q&A.txt" under optional ai folder. Located barely in the end of note.

      Cheers mate

    Excellent mod! Just one little thing, as I am using Content Manager. Before installation I had a group called Nordschleife, where all tracks sat in. After running the mod whole group changed name to AE NordTourist, so I got little confused at first. It has something to do with the AE ui files, becouse once removed, it gets back to normal. Of course CM allows you to rename the group and the issue is gone.
    1. Adie Evergreen
      Author's Response
      Hai hachiroku, first..thank you for the 5 star ^_^

      Yes, its because the mod
      i'll explain to you how AC call a track group name for this case

      If you see under "ui folder", ex : ui\AE NordTourist\ui_track.json << open it with Notepad++ or wordpad.

      Find "name" : "AE NordTourist 1.128",
      change it to "name": "Nordschleife - AE 1.128".
      then save it.

      Now in CM, you will see the Group comes back to "Nordschleife".

      It is because Assetto will open all the ui_track.json inside the UI, and collecting "name" Alphabet then arrange it.
      Originally, AC will pick "Nordschleife" as group name, because "Nordschleife - Endurance" will be ordered after "Nordschleife".

      I hope my explanation is clear enough..cheers mate :-)

    One of the best mods for Assetto Corsa!
    Thank you very much!
    You've done an outstanding work - especially all those cameras.

    I'd give five stars for the new layout including AI lines and new surroundings (trackside objects) and I'd give another five stars for all the cameras you get with this mod.
    It's pure insanity: There is one TV cam which is more like a spectator cam (like you'd be at the Nordschleife and watch a Touistenfahrt) and there are 43 (yes 43) static trackside cameras covering every section of the Nordschleife BTG.

    There are just two minor issues with the AI:
    1) sometimes AI need to go on the grass to overtake another car (Adie Everygreen knows about that and tries to siomething about it - see support page)
    2) often AI crash or ram into each other because of no. 1

    If you tun damage off it's not a real problem. I did a German mod presentation on my YouTube channel if you want to have a look (you should also watch Adie's video above):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-44Ol7PWGQ8

    Thank you very much again, Adie, for this fantastic mod.

    Love the carpark, I've removed the two gates from my kn5 to further enhance the experience, the alien AI is also a nice step up in pace.
    1. Adie Evergreen
      Author's Response
      thank you., for the review

      the file size of main .kn5 is too big to just removing the gate, so i'm not included in the mod
      glad you can remove it :D

      Have fun with the alien, although i hate with some AI ability with those ultra 1.2grip in their own file, they can late brake meters away from us.

    Super. Love your Ideas for better experience. Very good. I would give 6 Stars (if I possible) when the static cars in the pits looks a bit nicer with more polygones.
    Good that there is no lollypop man on the tourist.
    Thank you very much.
    1. Adie Evergreen
      Author's Response
      wow Hi Juergen, nice to see you here :D

      I play a lot with your "Touristenfahrten Mit AI" year ago
      Thx for the mod. its really inspired me to digging a lot more how to mod it.

      the low polys car is Kunos Asset from nurburgring tracks, however I have tried using several custom 50k polycars before but it lags me out in the pit with 55 AI, but i will try again finding "free 3d non commercial use" car under 40K polys . ;-)

      thx again for the idea juergen :thumsup

    ai spline might be missing or broken....any ideas why i get this error?
    1. Adie Evergreen
      Author's Response
      1st possibility is "wrong file structure".
      The fastlane.ai and pitlane.ai should be placed under "AI folder". It should be like this :
      Go to your steam installation folder >>
      \Steam\Steamapps\common\Assetto Corsa\Content\Tracks\ks_nordschleife\AE NordTourist\ai\..fastlane.ai and pitlane.ai

      Hope it help
