    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 ;)

    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 7.kn5 if you're feeling brave ;)


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

    Great work, thank you for your efforts! This is an excellent 'cruiser', too; It's nice to finally be able to drive north in California without traffic =)

      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 ;)

    I know that you have put your life and soul into creating this track. Your passion really shines through, excellent work :) Needs some fish for when I go swimming xD

      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 ;)

      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 ;)

      Cool, nice one mate, thanks :)
      May the force be with you too... Anyone that drives this road will need some force...
      It's a bit hardcore at the moment, as there are NO crash barriers!

    I love these point to point tracks, partly because it reminds me of the old Need For Speed games. This has a lot of potential... keep going!

    Just a 1 star quality but the potential is clear to see. I hope this grows into the best track mod of the game right up there with Donnington. I thank you for taking the trouble to make this mod.

    What a stunning track! A real nice flow & the lack of barriers means an adrenaline rush like no other track in assetto! This is something else. Keep up the amazing work! If this is a 0.2 cant wait for full version. Thanks!!!!!!!

      Thanks mate, glad you like the flow and excitement :) I think other tracks have that rush though, to be fair.. Lake Louise springs to mind for one... Thanks for the support :)

      Thanks for the rating :) You're welcome... Some one said it reminded them of Need For Speed... So the Highway Patrol skins had to be done... 1st skins I've done also... If I learn more about skinning... I will update them at some point... Have fun! :)

    That's all I need: a winding road with views on the sea! Great project. One thing I think it needs is some road signs!
    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

    Just tested this. Looks amazing as it is already. The track surface, which i was scared was gonna be completely flat, actually has feeling in FFB which is great. Of course the car is shaking at start and the end since AC's physics has a "range" where in the world center the physics is the calmest and the further away you get the more the car shakes. Im sure this will need proper LOD'ing on objects since you can see so far and only some will be able to drive it when its finished. But im really looking forward to the progress. This will be epic when we get the 918 Spyder and do a 6 hypercar chase on it. :) Keep it up!
    1. Phoenix77
      Author's Response
      Cheers for the feedback Alex... I didn't know about AC's physics range... Good to know mate. Yeah it will need proper LOD'ing... when I work out how to do that. At the moment I'm concentrating on getting the road and terrain so I'm happy with it. There will be a Levante, Mustang and Aventador Highway Patrol skins included in 0.2 coming soon! :)

      Nice one mate :) You're lucky to have lived near this road then! Will be adding 3 or 4 CHP skins with 0.2 so police chases could be good :) AI are sorted now... They only go over a cliff... If you... Push them! lol Thanks for the support, appreciate it :)

    Love the "track". Please please add some barriers and maybe some signs in some of the key slow corners. So frustrating to get about 11 mins in and fall off the road. Some huge potential for this.
    1. Phoenix77
      Author's Response
      Glad you're loving it :) Will be adding those things later... But as my computer is a bit underpowered I'm keeping it simple (well simple..ish) until I'm 100% happy with the road/terrain mesh... 0.2 is coming soon... Hope to have the meshes sorted by 0.3 and objects will be added from 0.4 onwards ;) Until then... Use the map, I added it for that reason... or stick a couple of AI on and keep up with them to learn the route ;)

    Great idea, fun to drive even at this stage. I hope you think about some "gathering areas" in the begining and the end of the route, like gas stations or motels, just to turn around or have a break. The road itself need serious mesh improvement, it hard to feel anything right now. Add some bankings, it's too flat in corners. Rest, like trees, rocks, etc., will come in time. I have great faith in this project, so little of them in AC. Keep up the good work!
    1. Phoenix77
      Author's Response
      Thanks mate, for feedback, suggestions & rating :)
      Yeah gathering areas is totally worth bearing in mind.
      Will look at that later down the line though..
      More importantly... The road cambers need looking at along with work on road/terrain mesh.
      I was going to wait before uploading...
      But as you say it's fun already so I thought I'd see if people like the concept. Thanks for your support, appreciate it :)
