Goodwood Circuit 0.99

Created using LiDAR scan data. Legendary motor racing circuit located at Chichester.

    Goodwood Motor Circuit mod is created using LiDAR data. No guesswork involved.

    When I found LiDAR data of Chichester (thanks to our forum community), I have decided that existing old Goodwood circuit mod can go to pension. I feel like my version is significantly better already. Take Goodwood Revival or Members Meeting spirit some pre 70s cars and have fun.

    What is LiDAR ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lidar

    Don't be surprised that track is rather bumpy, it has many undulations, it is far from flat. Most cars feels very good, however few cars might feel not perfectly suited for this type of track and those are the ones which never raced in Goodwood.

    Fake Wet layout is included for wet track placebo, don't be surprised that it is so slippery, 1"50 is a fast laptime at Goodwood when it is wet. Use alternative lines to get more grip, optimum lines has less grip. Pretty much first time in simracing when you'll have to search for grip in circuit :)

    Whats left to do:
    • Revise some existing elements and textures;
    • Add more elements;
    • Final revision, and all needed corrections, if found;
    • Optimisation;

    I've been racing this circuit in GTR 2 P&G mod, so it's a real pleasure to see such a good version in AC, now if only the GT Legends mod was available for the game.

    Very nice track. Really like what you did with the wet version (though it was probably not easy since AC does not support that). It really helps to avoid puddles when driving (since they cause aquaplaning and loss of control) and taking other lines than the usual dry line. Even the sound is there ;-)
    It's not live track, but as close as you can get I presume.
    Good job. Love driving both versions. Thanks for sharing.

    Soooooo much better than your initial release! Now clear and bright where it was dark and murky before. I'm taking it for granted that Lidar can accurately map the bumps...because it feels like where (and how big) they should be. Great fun with a fast car (RSS' presumptive Lister-Jag is my fav so far).

    Stunning work! I was hugely impressed by the wet version. So much better than I expected. Definitely not just a low grip tarmac.

    Would be 6 stars with more close-up TV camera set. :)

      Thanks, yes I think wet track is a bit better than it seems. First laps could be not so fun till you adjust to lower grips and different lines. Some cars works better than others too. Personally I really like Alfa Romeo GTA

      More closeup cameras can be easily achieved by copying existing cam set, and changing minimum/maximum FOV values :)

    Thank you for continuing to improve this beauty.
    A field of 60's and 50's sports cars and it's just like being at the Revival.
    And yes please more British circuits.

    Now THIS is how you create a track :)

    As this is about finished, I'm curious what project you'll tackle next? Newbury? Castle Combe? Keep these British circuits coming :)

      I don't know I am quite too busy for now. I would love to model a car or a few now, but time is tight. I have some beginnings for EType and Dtype, so still british :D

    Just had some fun in 0.8. It feels great especially with older cars. Looks great too. I think airstrips need more definition, it is not that important from drivers perspective though. AI gets freaked out here and there but nothing that can`t be fixed in next updates :)
    nicely done!

      Big thanks :) 0.95 will have plenty of improvements, it is nearly done, needs some tweaking, including AI.
