WIP Beaverun WIP

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder Projects' started by Raido, Aug 4, 2011.

  1. Here's a preview screenie of my next track, Beaverun.

    http://www.beaverun.com/about_facility.php

    It's a track in Pennsylvania, 1,53 miles long, which opened around 2002. This is the main course ('North Track', southern one was never built). Hopefully the layout and elevations should be fairly accurate, since they've been measured using GPS by a local racer which drove the track a while ago.

    So far, it's basic, but looking ok. The screenie is overlooking the 7th corner often nicknamed 'the little Corkscrew', since it's a left/right uphill/downhill going onto the back straight. Beaverun's got some nice elevations.

    Now the curbs at Beaverun are pretty flat. Not very rumbly, as it were. I tried to scale the vertical hight from the default Curbstones stringobjects, but when I type in the reduced value, nothing happens. A BTB bug or might I be doing something wrong?

    And, is there an alternative way to lay down some flat/wide curbs? From an Xpack perhaps? Using walls seems a bit cumbersome, but...

    There's no reason for scaling to not work - the curbs I use at Beijing are the default Flat1, and they are much smaller than the original (just look at the hairpin screenies!)
