    A big thanks to those that have donated, this has helped me afford to spend a little longer working on the track :)

    Highway 1 - California (North & South routes)
    23km of real california coast road reproduced from satellite data.
    Big Sur running South from Cape San Martin to the San Carpoforo Valley in California, with the North route running back up the coast.

    In a 911 Carrera S a benchmark time is around 9 1/2 minutes, so it's a pretty fast road overall. Good Luck staying on the road though lol
    Try not to lock up on the corner below ;)

    [​IMG]
    This is 23.2km of route 1 in California, the South route also being known as Big Sur or Big South. This road is also known as Pacific Coast Highway or PCH. One of the worlds most dangerous roads... This track now has invisible walls to give you a bit of help... Delete, rename or move 9.kn5 if don't want them.
    [​IMG]

    Cape San Martin is around 100km South of Monterey...
    Home to Laguna Seca.
    The San Carpoforo Valley is around 20km North of San Simeon

      Thanks a lot mate :)
      This is the layer 2 base of the track... I still need to put another 3 layers in... that's why it's only 0.699. So I hope you enjoy where it goes to even more :)
      I think the fundamentals are working pretty nicely now :)

    Fantastic track for relax and enjoy the AC physics

    Sadly there is no server online with this awesome track when it should be

    Keep the good work man

    Kudos!

      Thanks Emmanuel... That's great to know you're enjoying it :)
      Hope you're having fun chasing down some supercars.

      Hopefully there will be servers one day soon...
      If the word gets around, then maybe there will be...
      When there are servers online I plan to make 3 or 4 Pusuit layouts, with pit boxes all over the map...

      That's extremely nice to hear... and makes all the hard work worthwhile :) Have some fun runs pal.

      Please download the micro update (0.699a) to put roadsigns in Southbound.. which I accidentally missed in the models.ini
      My apologies!

    Thanks for your supreme effort man, this is excellent, of course is not perfect but you are working your butt off to improve this and it will only get better .... totally appreciate your heart & soul is in this ... cheers :-D ps.

      You are more than welcome mate :)
      You're exactly right... This isn't perfect yet... But then it is only a 0.699 When it is a 1.0 then all the elements will be in place..
      Including rockfaces, which is why I've gone easy
      on the trees, bushes, 3D grass, 3D twigs... No point me putting 3D grass where rock is going to be ;) lol
      The barriers will be going in after I make the polygons (tri's) along the track edge, different objects with dirt to tarmac transition..

      Please download the micro update (0.699a) to put roadsigns in Southbound.. which I accidentally missed in the models.ini
      My bad.

      Maybe that was why you were going off... You weren't seeing the speed limit signs ;) lol

    Nice project and thanks again for the work. Still it don't looks like a real life environment. Trees are much too dark, so can't see the details of it. (they are looking nearly black) Road texture could be in higher resolution. Please add 3d grass / little bushes beside the road so the track becomes more real

      No mention of the FFB mesh... I'll take that as a win lol

      Author's Response
      Thanks mate, Cruising down here has to be done... And I noticed the traffic while looking on google maps... I may be adding some mystery random hazards so you might have to beware ;)

      Author's Response
      Thanks mate :) That means a lot... knowing my passion for making this as good as it can be comes across...
      As I will be dedicating it to my Brother who died earlier this year.
      Once the tracks worthy enough for him!

      I reckon you're playing music that makes you want to drive too fast ;) Hope the invisble walls help you make it all 23km's just don't rely on them as they're mostly on the trickiest corners.

      Get some practice in and I'll set up a server sometime...
      I'll be the getaway driver in a Carrera S... with you in a police lambo mate ;)

      If none of that works... I'll model some fish lol

    Lovely project. The trees are to dark. Please also add a good physic road mesh. Track needs more FFB and more little bumbs. It is too flat, too smooth. Keep on working on this nice track!
    1. Phoenix77
      Author's Response
      Thanks, the trees were almost glowing before... So I turned the shader down a bit too much.

      HR FFB mesh is in my to do list... But I won't be subdividing and adding noise until later... until I'm 100% happy with the track position... I'm about 90 - 95% happy with it at the moment... I'm guessing you have your road effect up in your feedback? As I don't really find the FFB that much of a problem at the moment TBH. But it will be addressed later mate.

      With 100+ hours gone into this so far... Don't worry I won't stop working on this... And it's only halfway to where it will be ;) it's a 0.512 remember. There's another important location to go in yet...

      Then all will become clear

      Thanks for the feedback ;)

      Author's Response
      Thanks mate :) Glad you remember Test Drive... Stick some 80's tunes on and cruise (or floor it lol) either way... A more 3D Test Drive with Assetto's physics... That's got to be good. Have fun down here! Try not to drift around the gas stations too much lol

    Getting better and better after each update, still not able to make to the end :)
    1. Phoenix77
      Author's Response
      Thanks mate :) Should have another update, hopefully by Sunday.. some work on textures and a few other things ;)

      As a basic rule... If a corner has...
      1 road sign leading up to it ... ease off to read it...
      2 road signs leading up to it... start braking...
      3 road signs leading up to it... Start panicking lol

      Always stick to the speed limit ;) lol

      And ease off to 90% of your driving potential, it will actually make you faster.

      I'd also recommend either a Lamborghini Gallardo or Audi R8 Plus as these cars are ridiculously stable, and seriously fun down here ;) Plus the sound they make reflecting off the creek walls is very nice ;)

    1. Phoenix77
      Author's Response
      Thanks for rating :) Glad you're liking it so far... Check out v0.209 has some Highway Patrol skins... So you can have some chases when the Porsches arrive. Will be adding all the objects when I get the road/terrain 100% right... I think it's about 70% there at the moment... So might be a while yet
