    Highway 1 - California (North & South routes)
    This is 23km of route 1 in California, this highway is known as Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) or the Cabrillo Highway. The Southern route is well known as Big Sur (Big South). Big Sur starts at Cape San Martin and runs South along a twisty, mountainous section of coastline.


    Known as a true drivers road because of its fast sweepers, tight hairpins as well as fast and slow chicanes. Also includes the North Route. Cape San Martin is around 100km South of Monterey... The San Carpoforo Valley is around 20km North of San Simeon

    Where you start on the track depends on your car choice... And there's plenty of cars to choose from.

    Thanks to Unknown Siseneg for the cool video, Very nice driving :)
    and for demonstrating that using a high AI aggression setting (95%+) allows them to go door to door with each other along this narrow (to the AI) road, I'd recommend maxing it out.



    Credits / Thanks
    Massive thanks goes to @Ben O'Bro for being extremely helpful with 3DS Max, also suggesting some awesome scripts... Top man :)
    Big thanks to @dodz27 for the cameras :)
    I had to tweak a few of them as the terrain / roads moved quite a bit...
    after using a 1 billion pixel satellite image to line it up.
    Thanks to @Amir Vodokotlic for reminding me of a really useful program to source this.
    Thanks also to @movo. for reminding me quickly of a setting it would have taken me ages to find :D

      I don't think there's much I can do about the Pacific breeze...

    Assetto Corsa really needs some good roads to drive all those street cars and this is the perfect road for driving pleasure. Great flow, road gives a very credible feeling with FFB and road camber is very realistic with good elevation changes and variety. You really nailed the most important thing that is the road! You can do some cosmetic work on the scenery but that's only icing on the cake. Great job and impressive progress!

      Thanks Guido :) I also appreciate your support on this track going right back to the beginning.
      I really like it that you're appreciating the progress and that the road is now nailed & far more realistic.
      The extra cosmetic work should hopefully be a more fun stage.
      Thanks for the review mate :)

      Thanks a lot mate, you're more than welcome. really glad you're loving this update... Or should I say total overhaul.

      The best road track in Assetto? That's a massive compliment as there are some amazing road tracks out there.
      There's plenty more detail to go in, I hope you continue enjoying your time along the coast.

      Thanks for your review :)

    Loved it before - love it more now. Really one of my fav tracks. As a 3d artist I understand the scale of the project - well done!
    Can't wait for the next installment - but I'll enjoy just fine till then. GBW - sun breaks through2, 8am or 6pm - lovely stuff.

      Thanks a lot Darkour, I'm glad you've loved it for a while now...
      And I'm glad you can understand the scale :) and hopefully as you know the previous version, can appreciate the size of this update... As all 23kms of the road has been moved... to match the real road.
      Hope you re-learn the road quickly.
      Thanks for the review mate :)

    Just keeps getting better and better! the new road is a lot more friendly to drive on, I could survive a lot longer pushing my road cars to the limit without getting wet at all :)
    Starting on the south side the surroundings look a bit empty compared to the north side, but I know this isn't final so, 5 stars well deserved for the effort since it's really enjoyable at this stage.

      Thanks mate,
      Great to hear your cars are making it all the way along here, and with you pushing them to the limit... As I know how you like to test your roofs collision meshes ;)
      The areas that are emptyish at the moment are where the seas of bushes are going to go... either bushes or tall grass... or maybe some rock outcrops.
      And thanks for your amazing cars, helping push me to up the quality of the road surface to be worthy for them :)
      Glad you're enjoying it more and more.
      Thanks a lot for your 5 stars, as I know you don't hand them out where they're not deserved. Cheers Dan

    Thanks for this awesome track. I've been following the progress and it is not disappointing!! I really love the way the new road feels. The extra roads to the mansion and the parking are so much fun. I hope the next improvements you are planning will make this track a legend ;)
    1. Phoenix77
      Author's Response
      You're very welcome mate, glad you're liking the progress... and that you've been following it.
      The next improvements will be (after bug hunting) AI traffic, more scenery as in bushes... lots of bushes...
      There's plenty more to come.

      I'm glad you like the mansion road in particular... You'll notice a slight bump in the middle of those corners... That's intentional to unsettle the car mid way through the corner. The reason for this will be clear when it has the right static track cameras :)

      Thanks for your review, hope you learn the new corners quickly.

      Thanks Germain, It will soon get to 1.0

      The Need for Speed cars are well suited for the new road...

      You're welcome mate! It's a shame that you found the last version dull... But after driving the new rebuild... I can see why :)
      Really cool that you had lots of fun with your friends online.
      And thanks for any support in advance.
      Much appreciated.
      I hope you continue having more fun with your friends along here online.

    its very good. nice bumpy realistic feeling surface, good textures, enough roadside objects to not be boring. couple nice little side roads to explore. i did see a hole in the mesh on the right side of the road at the very bottom of the hill coming down from the mansion. also, it ran a smooth 90fps in VR (oculus) with just me in practice using an r9 fury gpu.

      Thanks for the detailed review Icky
      Yeah there are quite a few things to patch up...

      Thanks also for the performance figures... Seems like using the LOD system is working nicely... also trimming over a million polys out of the terrain mesh has helped performance.
