road width odity

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder' started by dampire, Apr 2, 2009.

  1. road width odity (solved)

    Step 1) Obtained width of the road I am working on, 5 to 5.1m (rounded to 5m)

    Step 2) Export to track to rF.
    3 cars should be able to fit very tightly on this road using my test car . . . only 2 if your lucky can fit.

    Deleted the HAT, deleted the gmt files in the exported folder re-exported with same results.


    Tracking down the problem:

    Imported track into 3ds max and made a box the size of the car and indeed it is 3 cars wide.

    Imported the car into 3ds max and indeed the car is the right dimensions.


    So I am stumped . . . anyone know of this issue?
     
  2. It is 3 cars wide but are those 3 cars exactly side by side wheels touching. in honesty a track width of 14 feet (5 meters) is very narrow for a race track and might support 2 cars side by side at racing speed, but it gets very tight.
     
  3. Just exported 3 boxes the size of the car on top of the track and drove my car into the nitch I created . . . guess there is room for 3 cars :/


    must be a perception thing . . .


    Yeah but in real life that is the width of the shallowest part of the track . . .

    Its not a track you would pass on anyway you would be more than happy just to keep up with the person in front of you lol


    now back to work lol
     
  4. Standard rural road lane widths where I'm at ~3.0,3.3,3.6m. 5.1m is very tight for 2 cars.
