    Hello,

    sorry first for my english, it´s not very good, but I hope you´ll understand what I´m talking about ;)

    So, I´ve made a close track and want to add a pitlane now. So I make an open track and fix it with "m" at the close track. But how to get the right positions of "Pit in" and "Pit out"? And how to get the right Driveline-> Centerline -> Pitlane? Can someone please help me?

    Thanks

    Torben

    You can only move those two points in the 3d view. I'm not sure why but there you go.

    Try something easier

    Try something easier, expand your terrain and level it. Then change the texture to cobble or some type of tarmac. Place a few barriers up and then fit your pit lane route to suite.

    Here's a pic of something I do when I need a pit area in a hurry.

    It is really simple and really quick.

    Biggles,
    Have had 2 other conversations about doing exactly what you suggest and show in your pic.

    Can you please provide a few steps and details of how exactly it is done. I cannot seem to be able to figure out how to highlight the part of the track I need to make wider...

    Driving me nuts as it seems a quick and easy fix to what I need to do but I can't figure out what I need to be be hitting in the track widening tool....

    Much appreciated.

    Use the terrain as the pit area.... just select a road texture instead of grass.
    Thats what Biggles has done. I do the same too....

    a quick pick to see what he did...

    can you move them in the 3d screen on the right upper corner of your screen?
