    Which add-on tracks are the best for GTR Evo/Race?

    I don't mean the tracks themselves, I mean the effort that has been put into them eg Donington National has been constantly upgraded.

    Which add-ons have been done the most professionally?

    I love Laguna Seca and Varano :D But thats just because of the track. NeelJ is one of the best convertors in the business and his stuff is 9/10 times very well converted.

    personally, i'm not bothered about the quality of the texturing & track-side modeling - so long as the track flows and is fun to drive... graphics are a secondary concern... but that's cause i'm an old school gamer, gameplay > eye-candy...

    eg. monaco... it's not the prettiest track you've ever seen... nor is the fps that solid in places... but it's joy to drive....

    that said, i would agree with michael - the virtua_lm tracks are on par with simbins, in terms of solid quality...

    donington just a converted gtr 2 version And been updated because of various changes. It's a popular track here as it suits everything from touring gt's to open wheel.

    If quality matters then vlm are the way to go. But to me I'm the same as andrew

    well after racing all day on the donnington it seems very right to me. having been there many times there does not appear to be any glaring errors.

    I confirm all NeelJ creations are the best (too bad there are not many)
    Also Meck seems to update his convertions very well

    Are the Virtua-LM tracks consolidated anywhere in one place? The download section here doesn't list author, and I don't see any of theirs at NoGrip either.

    Thanks in advance.

    Two very nice tracks are SPA and Interlagos. Sad are not original SimBin tracks, so they were more common Multiplayer choices.

    All the conversions from past Simbin games are high quality and worth having.
    Tracks converted from GTR2:
    Spa, Hockenheim, Dubai, Donington Park, Zuhai, Enna Pargusa, Barcelona.
    GTL:
    Zolder, Mondello Park, Dijon.

    The VLM tracks - Mid Ohio and Le-Mans are quality.

    Meck2, Piquet, NeelJ and VLM are the best track converters/creators EVER. Their work is always high-quality. :D

    What many people do is extract the files to a temporary folder first. I would recommend this method, because sometimes tracks come with GameData and UIdata folders bundled with them, and if you immediately extract them straight to your locations folder the game can crash when you load the track.
    Anyway, when you've done that, copy and paste to the following folder:

    C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\[your steam account name]\race 07

    OR, if you are using the offline version:

    C:\Program Files\RACE 07

    Note that this is in the case of a Gamedata and UIdata folder being included in the download - allow overwrites, it won't do anything bad. If there is just a raw track folder, extract it to either:

    C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\[your Steam account name]\race 07\Gamedata\Locations

    OR, if using the offline version:

    C:\Program Files\RACE 07\GameData\Locations

    NOTE: In the offline version, there may not be a GameData folder. If so, create a folder named GameData yourself.


    ...Sorry for the long post. :p
