    Hello community.
    Midway through 2014 i began building this fictional currently untitled track,
    i started with a rough sketch of a shape and then begun scouring google earth
    to incorporate some of my favourite roads from victoria, Australia
    And Porto, Portugal.
    it is now 26km in diameter with road networks throughout
    and plans to build a city, suburb, raceway industrial zone etc

    stay tuned for progress

    This will be a valuable learning opportunity, and when finished it will be very impressive. Good luck!

    Thanks,
    everyday i seem to learn something new from this project , from the cambers
    to roadwidth, terrain issues etc
    sometimes this screen is so close to destruction it's amazing i havent smashed it.
    the intersections are definately the toughest part especialy when the terrain is on a slope
    though i've figured a few ways to make it work, overall i have plans to import the map to 3ds and weld the vertices of intersections aswell as placing the 3d building etc

    @Dave Stephenson
    at the moment it is for rfactor but i dont see why it cant be converted to others

    hey guys, sorry for not posting updates, I've been crazy busy with studies and this thing is huge, so progress is running slow.
