    • Type: Untouched Unforgiving Road
    • Location: USA
    • Length: ?

    I've had this idea for a very long time since 2012-2013 when i first saw the movie Thelma & Louise

    For a long time i've had a fascination for the desert, its very different from the type of nature i live in and its a part of some of my favourite movies and TV shows which is also a big passion of mine :)

    The original plan was to make a series of long desert roads connected to eachother by making a loop through different types of wasteland (Rocky mountains, Desert Plains, bushy fields etc)

    I made alot of desert enviorment experiments in rFactor 1 + 2 and Stock Car Extreme

    The plan now is to finally get this dream track done! And AC is a great platform for this type of track with its large amount of road cars and mods!

    I will make the track with the help of Race Track Builder and i have already found some good locations and learned a few things about track modding for this game over the past year or so.. The Layout will be simple for now, Just a series of straight tarmac roads (with realistic profiles and bumps) connected to eachother and offcourse the desert wasteland will be driveable aswell if you use a car for the enviorment

    I want to keep the track very untouched, no big crowds or race track atmosphere.. Imagine a route put together by some street racers on normal untouched roads, dangerous and fun! its just a sim after all :)

    Not much has happened to the track unfortunately due to thieves stealing my energy and hapiness lately :( but summer holidays are not far away! there will be lots of time and energy to satisfy my creativity using Assetto Corsa then :thumbsup:

    However i managed to find some energy yesterday and worked on textures a bit, i learned some things and in return the track already starts to look better, now im just focusing on making everything which is in the track now feel and look solid and of good quality, after that its gonna be alpha testing time! :thumbsup: That should hopefully be soon!

    Heres a pair of nice shots with a blue Lambo:

  11. Do not go where the road may lead you, go instead where there is no road and leave a trail.. because: Quattro :thumbsup:

    Not so much progress since last time but i felt it was time for some more pictures! I want to add something more before i give it out for testing as its just roads right now.. been thinking about what that thing might be, more roads, buildings, signs, landmark or maybe airstrip? what do you guys think?

    Welcome back!

    Noted!

    Have a nice day everyone :thumbsup:

  12. If you're asking for suggestions, i'd say...
    Make it abandoned desert-moto-city like. I mean except the main road(s) add a airstrip for drag, some kind of parking lot or big gas station for player meetings, maybe some abandoned race track (horse thief mile comes to mind, would fit nicely). A broken bridge over a dry river canyon that you need to jump in order to get to the track? Or abandoned mlitary base, y'know. Just so it feels alive, with it's own spirit, that someone was racing and living here in the past. Not like just another generic track.
    I'd absolutely love to see that happen, happy to test as well.

  14. Overall I'd suggest some used look. Old tarmac, decayed buildings/ghost towns, an abandoned airstrip and so on. But I'd also suggest to put some life in there by having some places where there seem to be some people living their daily life. I.e. maybe some bigger gas station, a motel, maybe a small town with some parked cars and so on. :)
    And what about a salt lake with some tents/pavillions and some people with cars standing around? ;-)
    Options are endless... Make your choice ;-)

  15. Haha...such a jump would be cool. :) Will be funny to see what AC's physics will make out of it. ;)
    But...please don't make any jump mandatory. Would be too arcadish imho. ;)
    I think it fits best when there is an abandoned road. ;)
     
  16. I would say something to improve speed sensation (only if you think it needs it, because now with a wavy road and some bushes at the sides maybe it's ok) or something like an airfield/old track like people says would be OK, also some meeting point worth to reach would be also nice ;)
     
  17. Now we just need a White Dodge Challenger to blast across the whole map in... :sneaky:
