    Does anyone know how to create lights in sketchup?
    Or a pack of lights that isn't Track_Lights ?

    You can't. You can make the shapes and position the fake light textures.
    But you need a tool like 3Dsimed to actually make them work.

    You can get a poster of light like that of Abu Dhabi? I think it is too difficult for me, plus they do not know much English and use the google translator

    You can also create lights in a "basic" editor like Zmodeler.

    Here is what I came up with. I tried to keep them as low polly as possible. I couldn't really find any good close up photos of them so I don't know how accurate they are. I'm working on the lighting properties now.

    Wen I test the track with any of the lights (your'se and default) on the night, the game crashes. Why?

    Not Sure Adrian. I tested them in all the tracks I'm working on and haven't been able to get them to crash. I'm afraid I am useless with the technical side of things. :( Hopefully someone else here can help. Is there an error log that pops up?

    Yes, when rFactor has loaded the track and the cars (the down bar is completed) the game crashes:mad::mad::mad:
    I hate it!!! It's a good game:thumbsup:, but to the minimum that touches something, crashes...:poop:
