Toscana 0.31

Fictional race track set in toscana, 24 pitboxes, 3 layouts

    I present you my first fictional track (before attempting to make a real track), the Toscana Autodromo.

    New v0.3 lap around the track and replay:


    It is set in the beautiful country side of Italian Tuscany.

    The track have now 3 layouts :
    Short: Toscana Centrale
    Regular: Toscana Gran Premio
    Regular with bypass: Toscana Gran Premio Veloce

    The track features a Hairpin, a Bankturn, two chicanes and a tunnel.
    The main track is a "8" that turns clockwise.
    The version right now is 0.3 with WIP AI and WIP replay cameras (AI for GP layout made by TibuszHun ;)).

    This is my first track ever, so I hope you will like it.

    This is an excellent track. Great feel, great corners, really tricky line. I love it.

    The scenario is perfect too. Racing and Toscana go hand in hand. Well done!

    I have one tiny request to make: Could you add another section around Pendolino thats more suiteable for F1 cars? Right now, the old bank there isnt really good for the low F1 cars.

    Absolutely love the track, really one of the best fantasy tracks out there & even in comparison to most real tracks its up there wit the best. Only thing i'm not keen on is the lavender kerbs & run off. for me it is too over designed & i just really detest that colour i would even prefer pink & that is saying something. I really hope one day there is poppies, bluebells or tulips growing instead.:-p

    What an awesome track.
    It's fun to drive and the optical atmosphere is awesome.
    Especially that stadium section got some interesting corners.
    There's only one problem: Once I get off track, my lap stops counting until I pass the same place again.
    All in all, 5 stars.

    Masterpiece. If the quality wasn't enough, I find that this circuit has a vintage Gran Turismo feel to it (you know, Midfield Raceway, Trial Mountain, etc.). I love it, plain and simple.

    Very great track ,well made, probably the most tricky track ever made, even the Paul Ricard can't beat it in this matter (with my driving skills of course). It could be interesting t gather laptimes with cars, settings and weather data.

    But it doesn't "destroys" Highlands in every aspect as Karlpeg wrote :P

    What an amazing track, and this is only 0.3? Love the use of purple details, the environment looks beautiful and the layout is so much fun to drive, has everything, even a tunnel!
    Looking forward for future updates, this is already a masterpiece.

    Sir, this track destroys Highlands in every aspect! Very well done, mate! Kunos should hire you for the fictional tracks while they are scanning the real ones!

    Exelent work ... 10 stars Thanks a lot .....very nice graphics , cool track layout . The only bad - thing for me are the color of the curbs and strokes naar the road , purple are to childish and not an used color for curbs . ....its a thing that reduces the quality of the track ......red/white is tje most ussed color for curbs and dark green for the strokes . But It's everybody's personal taste Thanls and look out to the updates

      Hi Bert, first thanks for your comment and the rating!
      I know the color is controversial (to be truth I knew it from the start when I decided to go for it... ^^), but since it's fictional, I thought, hey why not go a little crazy and choose a color that would be part of the track's visual identity.
      So I choose a color that we don't see often on track. For the better and for worse.
      I know it is divisive but I bet next time you see a screen of a track with purple kerbs, you will think "it's toscana!" ^^
      I hope you will enjoy the track anyway!

    My favourite ac-track besides bridgehampton. The rhythm of it is totally unique and the layout is diversified to the maximum. Every lap on it is a blast. I really hope for a proper ai some time soon, but hotlapping has never been so much fun!
